As someone who loves travel, I know what a difference it makes to have a friendly and welcoming place to come back to after a day spent absorbing new but sometimes tiring experiences.

The owner of Villa Jacaranda Ajay, saved our holiday after a mess up with our flights. He couldn't have been more helpful in arranging everyything from taxis to a place to stay. The breakfast was excellent and served on our own balcony looking over the gardens and with a view to the sea. The room was nice and clean.
