Lazy Island is definitely catered for everyone, from couples break away, friends breakaway, or family breakaway. FULLY EQUIPPED. The owner REALLY goes the extra mile for her guests, and assure that all needs are met. I can without a doubt recommend Lazy Island to anyone. Location is perfect, within walking distance from restuarants, and shops.
Superb. 5 out of 5
