A great little villa right on the beach in Jambiani. Best thing about the location is that this is very much a "locals" beach and not some horrible sterile resort where the local residents are excluded. This meant that we got to see kids playing and some great soccer games each evening - lots of fun. Right between two unpretentious restaurants and with possibly the best "beach shack" restaurant in Jambiani behind it means that there is no shortage of places to eat if you want these - even more unpretentious restaurants within easy walking distance N up the beach. Possible to swim at high tide from about 20m in front of the house - at low tide, a bit of a walk, but provides interesting changing views from the upper terrace (where we virtually lived as it was nice and breezy - less hot than indoors).
The house is modest, but adequate unless you feel the need for luxury ... or aircon - although this would greatly reduce the feeling of "being on the beach". (The house was in line with the price.)
The manager, Issa, was absolutely great! He arranged all sorts of things and checked daily whether we needed anything - a really lovely guy with lots of contacts in the area.
