My husband and I came back a week ago after spending a week at Paul and Karen’s Kabakalli apartment. The location is ideal. It is quiet and away from the tourist areas which are easily reachable however when desired. The apartment is comfortable (hot shower, plenty of ventilation) and fully equipped, e.g. hair dryer, toaster, French press coffee maker, electric tea kettle, etc…. It comes with A/C and the bed has a mosquito net but with the fans there was no need to use either one. We managed to get around the island and engage in various activities without having to rent a car thanks to the immediate availability of public and taxi transportation. Catching the frequent mini bus or van was just a five minute walk away from the apartment, and, I must admit, it provided us entertainment… If you take the catamaran and jeep tours as we did, the companies come and pick you up at the apartment. Shopping at the local mini mart, also located at a walking distance, provided us with the basic foodstuff for breakfast which we enjoyed every morning on the front deck overlooking the ocean. In the evenings, it was a delight to sit outside again with the breeze coming through before heading over to the Surfer’s Bay Beach Restaurant/Bar for dinner, only a couple of minutes away. It is quite a picturesque hang out serving tasty fresh food, including a couple of delicious desserts, and a variety of drinks. It is so convenient and enjoyable that we chose to eat there every night except our last day. For yogis, on the surrounding grounds, there is yoga practice twice a week with Tiffany, an instructor who lives a couple of houses down. Several beautiful beaches with fine white sands and clear warm waters are nearby. Very importantly, we felt very safe both day and night . Last, it was reassuring to be able to phone Julian, the property manager, when we had questions.
