Loved our stay here, the room was great and we were very comfortable. The ocean view was memorizing and having the air conditioning was a real plus when the days got really hot. Most of all the owners Michele & Svein were so welcoming and they went out of their way to help us out, they gave us with food when we arrived and had none of our own, they drove us places until we were able to arrange our own transportation and they also put together a lovely night where we could share some drinks with them and other guests. Overall I'm really glad we stayed here and I'm happy to recommend them to anyone.

This property has new owners that have refurbished and improved the previous set up. The villas are spacious and well appointed with lovely, fresh decor, substantial kitchen facilities and air conditioning. The grounds are tranquil - a fabulous, deep pool that is set amongst tropical flora and fauna, as well as an accessible BBQ, an outdoor bar for an evening drink or cocktail, seating alongside the reef, and access to a private beach only metres away. During our stay (9 days), the hosts were welcoming, friendly and accommodating. Fresh produce and breakfast supplies (milk, tea, coffee, bread, spreads, cereals, fruit) were waiting in the room on arrival. The outlook from the villas to the ocean is spectacular! While we were there, we experienced a tropical cyclone where the waves rolling in were magnificent! As the weather settled, so did the ocean, where it became clear and much more still. Exploring the reef and the surrounding area of the property was fabulous! Lots of little hermit crabs and other wildlife kept us amused for hours! This section of the island is the perfect spot for whale watching later in the year. There is a small shop across the road if you need basic provisions, or a little further down the road there is a gas station, larger shop and takeaways. In the other direction, Muri is only minutes away. If you are looking for accommodation that’s away from the busy, larger resorts, this is the place to stay!
