We stayed at Johnson Villa and the View from that villa was supernice, the kitchen utensil provided were good and almost everything was perfect. But they should improve in terms of hanging place for clothes and towel. At the same time, 3 of the dining chairs should be replaced since it easily broken and may be dangerous to the customers.

Overall stay was ok and whole family had a great time. They had bbq pit so it was convenient for us to bring along fresh seafood for our bbq. Staff were very friendly. Bedding were comfortable. We lived in the villa which were spacious overall - all three rooms were spacious attached with own toilets. Rooms lack tables or even clothes rack. It would have been good to have somewhere to hang clothes or towels. Road is steep and Very limited space car park area. Villa could be updated. Surrounding area like the gardens and common areas could be better maintained and clean. Overall thereโ€™s potential for upgrades.

In the middle of nature so quite relaxing. The access isnโ€™t convenient as there is a big slope to access the residence. Quite hard to bring your suitcase up and down.
