We stayed here for 9 days with our three little kids and two nannies. We stayed in a three bedroom apartment. Being our first time in Gambia, we found the location to be perfect. A few minutes walk from the "strip" with all the bars and restaurants. We found Alan and Sharon to be a very hospitable and friendly couple. They made our stay a most memorable one. Sharon baked a lovely cake for our daughter's birthday (5 year old) and Alan gave her free swimming lessons. The apartment was cleaned daily and the staff were polite and friendly. Summergrove villa is a safe and secure place to stay. Being the off season period, we found Gambia to be quiet, peaceful and to our liking. We had a lovely chap (Peaceful), who took us around Gambia. He was introduced to us by Alan and we found him to be very honest and pleasant. The only negative for us at Summergrove was the malfunctioning airconditioner in our bedroom (apartment 1). It made sleeping at night very uncomfortable. We would definitely stay here on our future trips to the Gambia and would be looking forward to Sharon's lovely Yorkshire Pudding. Bini's just across the road is a lovely place to eat out at night. Ian & Carol.
