The location of Villa Makai ist just perfect: in fact it is very close to town but situated up on the hill it feels far away from the noise and dust at the same time. The views are incredible! You have a stunning ocean view and a breathtaking jungle view!!! The open living room and kitchen are perfect to cook...
