The Villa aside from being the romantic getaway can also comfortably accommodate up to 4 for families with children above 7 years old, or friends traveling together where privacy is not an issue.
The more suitable accommodation for families with older children, couples or friends is the two bedrooms and two baths Grander. It is situated on its own private acre of paradise. Each room was built to capture the spectacular panoramic ocean views from the time you wake up in the morning until you close your eyes at night when the gentle sound of waves will lull one into a restful night's sleep.
Both Master bedrooms have King Size beds however the second bedroom can be converted from a King to two single beds. They each have their own bathrooms one with a shower/tub combination and the other with a walk in shower. The bedrooms open up to the lounge area that includes the kitchenette and dining area. The frontage is a long covered deck with a dipping pool in the middle and an open tanning area on either side. When you return from the beach have a little rinse off in the refreshing jungle shower.

The Marlin Cottage is ideally suited for a couple or a single that are on a bit of a budget.
