    In the listing it said the house had A/C. The main living area had A/C (sort of) but the bedrooms did not. The area is was experiencing a heat wave so I booked the room because it listed A/C. Disappointed with that.

    We were unable to check in due to the owner was arriving too late. we had to find other hotel and we lost too much time for going and back. the bad mood at the early stage of the trip.

    Adequate for our needs and price range

    Booking was easy and photos true to facts. Booked at last minute without knowing what we were going to do on the island. Not too far from bus stops and with more research would have been ideal for various landmarks etc. Initial problems contacting owner as I didn't have full internet access and limited language, A phone call from the ferry terminal proved unsuccessful. Fortunately email details were available at the house so we gained entry eventually. Lovely layout, comfortable lounges and nice kitchen area.
