This is a perfect place for slow travelers, who has had their fair share of tourists traps, and wish to enjoy a laidback and genuine Asian community. The apartment is without all the normal clutter so it is easy to keep clean and tidy. The idea is to attract 1 or 2 people who wish to escape a hectic lifestyle and enjoy the peace and tranquility as well as privacy by the sea. To recharge your batteries and maybe figure out what your next step in your life should be. We offer great discounts for longer visits so please get in touch if you wish to stay longer than a week. If you are flexible with your dates you can rent our other unit 'Lotus Oriental Vintage Experience' for an even lower rate than this one. Just get in touch so we can start talking Our ambition is also to encourage singl...
