It was pure chance that we stayed 3 nights at Liv's and James' awsome place.
We have allready been some days on Gili Meno - a quiet, relaxing, beautiful island, as we decided to extend our stay. Luckily James (the owner of the villa and manager of one of the Dive Centers on the island) offered us a room with private pool at his place.
We got a very warm welcome with home made iced tea. And than we were led to our apartement.
When you open the door, you are standing in front of the pool - it even includes a jacuzzi. You have to cross a small bridge - like in Venice - to get to the furnished veranda. From here you can enter your bedroom.
We found everything we wished, and even more. AC, mosquito net, mini bar, a drinking water dispenser, a safe, cuddly towels, .....
But I still haven't told about the best: breakfast!! Lovely, delicious, fantastic - made with a lot of love ❤. Liv serves the breakfast of your choice at your terrace. Mhmm, yummy! Freshly baked bread, fresh tropical fruits, egg of any style and very very good coffee.
We felt like Queen and King, heaven on earth, like living a dream in paradise.
Thanx to our hosts Liv and James.
Hugs and kisses,
Kathrin and Andy
Sea la vie is one of the best places I've stayed on Meno as I visit Meno annually for my island vacation since 2013. This is a new villa, probably a few weeks old.
Price is certainly reasonable for a private villa. Location is excellent, about 5 mins walk from the beach and harbour. There are nearby restaurants which are walking distance which serves excellent food. Pak Man/ Buati serves local food (5-7 mins walk) and No 5 Star (5-7 mins walk).
Each private villa has its own private pool and semi outdoor shower. It has AC which is important for me. There's a small arch bridge that connects the front door of the villa to the bedroom over the pool.
Wifi is provided with hot shower and water dispenser (you can fill your water tumbler and reduce the use of plastic bottles on the island).
The couple is lovely and friendly. Breakfast are incredible and cooked with love and effort. There's sweet or savoury to choose from. Choice of eggs, or pancakes or muesli with home made yogurt. And all breakfast comes with fruit salad. Most importantly, they serve good coffee.
The owners are very eco/environmental friendly. They try to use less plastics and no plastic straws (all bio-degradable).
Bed and pillows are comfortable.
Two thumbs up to the owners. I will certainly return to stay with them again.
We really enjoyed our stay at Sea la vie, everything brand new and clean as they just opened. Very warm welcome, friendly staff always there to help. Delicious breakfast. Bike rental nearby and 5 minutes to the best beach on Meno. Wish we could stay longer!
