We had the most amazing time in Alfredo's house. The views were stunning and there is a lovely little kitchen to cook food in. Scooters are very cheap to rent and it only takes about 10 minutes to get down to the port area. Alfredo even picked us up at the port and drove all our bags up to he house and also brought them back down when we were leaving. AMAZING AND BRILLIANT. I will remember this place forever!

Very nice small house with everythiing you need. The view is beautiful and it is a perfect place to relax. Alfredi is very friendly, he even came to pick us up at the port. I can recommend it to anyone.

We had an excellent experience in Teresia Cottage! Wonderful view and really nice and quiet, and we had a really nice time chatting with Alfredo when he was nice enough to pick us up.

Alfredos place was perfect for us! Peaceful, relaxing, fantastic view. A bit out of town but close to a supermarket and great butcher. We self catered pretty much to whole time but there are some nice restaurants around too. The space was clean, comfortable, everything you need. Including super fast internet! We had a scooter which Alfredo sorted for us on arrival. Would be tricky without one I think. Alfredo was great at communicating for our arrival/ departure. A truly beautiful place. We will hopefully stay again one day.

The appartment is charming and everything works well. It is a really privileged location (must have a scooter) and has a marvelous view, we spend great and relanxing time. I regret not having been able to stay more. Alfredo was very kind and helpful, he came to the port to pick us up. Grazie Alfredo !

Due to unforeseen circumstances we had an extra person for the first two nights. We told Alfredo and he never mentioned he had a problem. However from the start, although he did pick us up from the port, he seemed extremely dry and quite rude. Even beforehand on airbnb he barely communicated. This was surprising as it was not what we expected from reviews. The house was as described and very clean, and the view was amazing. The walk down is incredibly difficult in the hot sun however and is more than 25 minutes. The closest beach is even further away. Scooter hire in August is very expensive. The cheapest we found (without help from Alfredo) was €35 a day. We were polite and respectful to he and his house. During one of the nights the frame leg on the foldout mattress collapsed under proper usage. We told Alfredo, however, at the end of the stay he tried to request €200 from us. Overall it was a nice stay, but it left a very bad taste in our mouths. I am sure usually he is great as reviews say, but from personal experience I would not recommend.
