We would recommend Sunlit Waters to all of our friends without reservation as Stuart keeps the studio apartments in pristine condition and was only too happy to ensure we enjoyed our 3 nights stay. The studio apartments, equipped with everything you might wish for, are located on a hill overlooking the sea and millionaires' cruisers. We also considered the Sunlit... More

My girlfriend and I felt very warmly welcomed at Sunlit Waters by Stuart, the owner/manager. The large studio we were in had excellent views and a great design to relax together after a day out and about. We were there for seven nights. The apartments were absolutely spotless when we arrived. Whoever cleans the place is doing a great job.... More
