Sharon recalls when the villa owner made her a permanent staff for the villa because they thought she was so special and good at what she does, that they didn’t want to share her with anyone else. Angela fondly remembers when there was an African family staying at the villa who requested in-villa dinner service, they enjoyed the meal so much that the husband went back to the kitchen to lick the bottom of the pot.

What is the “best” feature of Villa 16?

While almost every vantage point from villa 16 has a great ocean view, the view from the master bedroom is exceptional!
