I am almost too afraid to write this review, in case Mongoose gets so popular that I struggle to get a booking in future! From our first email interactions it was clear that this would be a home from home - friendly, safe and well equiped. Even so, it exceeded our expecations. It is a minute walk from the beach which, in my opinion, makes it better situated than the places on the beach that may get slightly noisy or busy during season. There is a little jungle path that connects the property with the beach, which is lush and beautiful. The apartments themselves are spacious, beautiful, well fitted with everything you might need on vacation, and clean as a whistle. They are well designed so that you may have your privacy or so that you could interact with your neighbours should you choose to. The guest manual is brilliant and comprehensive and explains everything you need to know about the services. One of my favourite things is that the tap water is clean and sweet and safe to drink. I didn't buy a single bottle of water during our entire stay, and I am usually very sensitive to water in foreign countries. The other boon is that there is a little supermarket 5min's walk down the road, and we could cater for ourselves in our well equiped kitchen very nicely. There was also a washing line right outside our kitchen door which is a blessing to many a traveller. Sandra and Elroy are superb hosts - friendly, helpful, intelligent & thoughtful people who get the balance between professionalism and personalising just right. Honestly, this is one of my favourite places of all time.
