    Kaiya house is one of the most charming places to stay I've ever been to. Debra and her lovely staff made every day of our holidays unforgetable. I would recommend this homestay to all travellers. Their breakfasts are excellent.

    No it does not have private beach access but to my knowledge nowhere does. It's a ten minute walk to the public beach. However you will not be disappointed staying here. Deborah & her team are the best.
