“Clean, green, mosquitoes, green frogs and geckos”
Reviewed 25 February 2018 for a stay in January 2018
person found this review helpful

Tropical garden with flowers, hummingbirds, chickens and a cat at your door. Very clean room with comfortable bed. Welcome salad plus bread, coffee, jam and ti punch. Cool, small common pool. Distant, over the treetops sea view.
Deposit payment by bank transfer only and balance paid in cash on arrival.
Very difficult to find, phone call went to voicemail. Stopped at a dive shop at the beach for directions. Road to motel has a steep incline.
Barking, growling dog in the morning. Quiet at night except for road traffic behind building and chirping frogs. Driveway in front of unit noisy with cars driving in and out. Garden is good privacy outside between units but walls are paper thin inside. We heard some very private moments in the unit next to us.
Mosquitoes are a real problem during the day and night. The bed netting works but you can't stay under it all the time. Coils, candles do not work. Insect spray with a high DEET is recommended. If mosquitoes like you at home, they will LOVE you here. To keep out the green frogs and limit mosquitoes we closed windows (no glass or screens) and doors at night and used the A/C. Tiny frogs came in anyway and we stepped on a few getting to the bathroom. 1 bath towel and 1 hand towel each for a week stay.
NO INTERNET for 5 days. Not helpful in finding internet in the area. Drove back across the mountain to Le Gosier to get online.
It all depends on your comfort level in choosing a place to stay.

Je suis désolée de constater que vous vous êtes trompés en réservant un gîte en bois en pleine nature et qu'un appartement hermétiquement clos sur une marina vous aurait mieux convenu .....

Ce que nos locataires apprécient le plus c'est justement le contact avec la nature, la végétation tropicale, la visite des minuscules grenouilles et lézards endémiques de la Guadeloupe, les oiseaux qui viennent sur votre table, la vie à l'extérieur (personne ne s'enferme en Guadeloupe), la symphonie typique des nuits tropicales .... plus de la moitié sont d'ailleurs des habitués.
Concernant la panne Internet je me suis excusée mais malheureusement cela n'était pas de mon ressors , nous avons du attendre la réparation du fournisseur ....

Le voyage c'est la découverte .....

“Perfect Quiet and Low Key Bungalow”
Reviewed 11 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We are a middle age American couple who are frequent travelers and we can highly recommend this small bungalow village. Owners Sylvie and Daniel are a transplanted French couple who live on site and are perfect hosts. (As a bonus for visiting Americans, Daniel speaks English, which is often not the case in Guadeloupe.)

The bungalows are clean, charming, and have all of the basic amenities. The mattress is comfortable and with good mosquito netting, a ceiling fan, and being high enough up the hill that you get good breezes, you don't really miss not having AC. The open porches offer privacy while still having nice views. The property is located a good ways up the hill from the village, which makes for a perfect combination of peace and tranquility in the evenings, but still just a few minutes drive to two large supermarkets and local fruit and seafood stores. The location about halfway down the island is perfect for exploring farther afield, but is especially good for divers who want to focus on the nearby marine diving sanctuary.

Bottom line: if you are looking for a luxury resort and long white beaches, then this isn't the place for you (and indeed, the relatively unspoiled but less developed Base Terra island probably isn't for you). But if you are a diver or hiker looking for a clean, comfortable and affordable base, you will not go wrong here.
