      We were entirely happy with our stay. The cottage was well equipped, it felt like home and the service was excellent. Definitely going back.

      I had quite a nice time at Prospect Cottage. I will definitely revisit the place and recommend them to others.

      Spacious, nice, home away from home. All the necessities included which makes it a bit cheaper to vacation - no need to buy all the cleaning products that’s so costly. Magnificent view of the heads, lagoon and waterfront. Great value for money......no need to sell an organ or body part to vacation...
