“Just what we needed!”
Reviewed August 18, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Fantastic location and cosy house with lovely, helpful owners. Anil and Krish thank you so much for all of your help and advice. You made our stay so easy which only adds even more to the degree of calmness we found. The Views from both sides of the house are wonderful. You can sit and watch the river all day if you wish and then take a few short steps to have a sundowner on the beach watching the sunset. Lots of restaurants within a 10 minute drive help to make this a very relaxing getaway. Yes, we would recommend this to friends and yes we would go there again! Thanks again Anil and family. We had a lovely time.

“Beautiful Location”
Reviewed November 11, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Anil, Bella and kumaar were delightful owners. We were given mangoes from the trees in the garden. They also brought me a birthday plant and local food which was delicious. The views over the river from the rear patio were amazing. It is only a few steps to Tamarin beach and the sea. As it was a holiday weekend there was some noise from the locals camping on the beach but it did not disturb us. There is a pleasant and easy walk to Flic an Flac along the beach and through the woods. Security is very good with guards around the gated community all of the time. We had some problems with an invasion of ants but once killed it was ok. A number of cockroaches and large spider did not go down well with my wife! The a/c in the downstairs bedroom was welcome. The kitchen needs to be updated throughout as units are really old. Bed linen, towels and curtains (which were transparent) should be better quality. It is fairly basic accommodation so do not expect luxury but we got used to it and really enjoyed our week there. Maid did the washing each day. It would be nice to have a couple of sun loungers for the garden. I used the kayak to paddle up the river which was lovely. It is a bit of a drive to supermarkets so we stocked up rather than buy fresh bread each day. The local diving centre was excellent.
The location and the owners make it 4 star.
