We came to Devon Lodge for sun and peace & quiet. We got both. Our flat was nice and shady, as the African sun can be blazingly hot, so that was lovely. And it was also peaceful, an oasis of beautiful tranquility after being out in the hussle and bustle of the African interplay in town.
It was a pleasant walk to the sea, where we could sit and read or walk into the gloriously warm sea.
Our hosts, Patrica and Suleyman were lovely. Intelligent, loving people who were only too willing to help out with anything we needed. They even put a mosquito net door on the flat for us. We were greeted by a preying mantis that appeared on a vase of freshly picked flowers from the Devon Lodge garden, and it stayed with us through the weeks we were there. Perfect.
I recommend this destination to anyone wishing to enjoy Africa and have an English haven available to enjoy at the same time.
