From the minute we touched down we knew we had landed in paradise, but The House took it to another level. Such a beautiful, intimate, friendly hotel, right on the beach. Amazing room, we had a ground floor suite that walked out onto the pool and then straight onto the beach.

Dear Jo and Matt, Many thanks from the entire team at The House for taking the time to review your recent stay. We are honored to know that from touch down to departure, your time with us was utter paradise. From the champagne breakfast in the morning to the sweet treats brought to you throughout the day, it seems that you two enjoyed the spoiling aspects of The House. It is fabulous to note your satisfaction with your grand floor accommodations, especially the gorgeous view that accompanied that. We hope you had the opportunity to partake in some of our complimentary water sports, or even take time to explore our gorgeous tiny island. We enjoyed your company throughout your visit, and we hope that your travels lead you back to our gates again soon. Warmest Regards, Maggie L. Social Media/Guest Relations

What is the beach like ? Can you swim easily in the sea - or is it rocky? Thx you
It is beautiful to swim in. Stay inside the ropes and avoid getting close to them, recommend getting some wet shoes to walk into the sea as is quite corally. Water is beautiful, snorkelling is amazing.

Hi - it depends where you eat - we ate at Tides which was circa 300 USD - two courses and a bottle of wine - it was quite expensive but we ate at Cariba - 3 courses and cocktails and wine and it was 187 USD - it is expensive to eat out - however the food is fabulous and the people are wonderful

"ocean view suite"
"2nd or 3rd floor { no lift } but the views are stunning very quiet with 2 balconies overlooking the beach"
