Megan has thought of everything in this cosy under apartment room. There are teas/real coffee grains, milk, bread, free range eggs in the kitchen. A huge range of towels, shampoos, soaps, beautiful cotton Muse sheets that stay cool in the hot weather. Great little balcony with armchair footstool table and chairs and outside gazebo draped in passionfruit! Megan even shares her washing machine which is right outside the inside door. A wonderful place to stay on top of the hill with a magnificent view from the front of the house. Megan is kind and organised and communicates impeccably.
