Upon arrival, some fruit and sparkling wine was provided at no charge, and literature on things to do in the area. The house is centrally located to the main attractions. 5-10 minute walking distance to downtown Punda, floating markets, coffee shops, and barhopping along Nieuwestraat. The view of the ocean is spectacular. Private pool, beach chairs and hammock. Everything was clean and organized. Lots of room indoors and outside for those who have lots of luggage/ diving gear, and/or family. The only minor comment I would make is the bed, not the most comfortable, a little too firm for my taste.
Overall great location, stay, and excellent hospitality from David. We would highly recommend.
Stayed in the Beach House for one week. The location right on the ocean is wonderful - can hear the waves day and night and watch the ships go by. The apartment can be totally opened up to the outdoor space which includes your own private pool, your own little sandy “beach” and loungers and a hammock. There is a full kitchen. The bedroom has fantastic air conditioning - we usually only had it on for a few hours before bedtime to cool the room and did not need it overnight. There are double shower heads in the spacious shower and double sinks in the bathroom with exposed stone in the bathroom. David and Cindy were always available if we needed anything. The unit is in Pietermaai which is a lively area with lots of shops and great restaurants and close to the Queen Emma floating bridge. Always felt safe there. Will be returning.
