    About me

    We are a married couple of 36 years and enjoy walking and cycling. Mark enjoys his golf whilst Wendy is happy to chill out and read.

    We both like to socialise and enjoy company. We sometimes holiday with friends and family 

    Our apartment whilst is in our opinion fantastic, is on an unfinished gated community. It's a fantastic place to base yourself and explore the surrounding areas. We go out each year and always meet new friends and have such a great time.
