I stayed 2 weeks in the appartments.
The staff was great and very helpful.
Big appartment with a nice terras if you have it to hot inside (but there is airco inside if you want it).
Only 20/25 minutes walk from the Gambia Strip.
If you want to be away from the busy tourist area, don't hesitate.

Toffe ervaring, mooi verblijf en europees comfort tussen de plaatselijke bevolking.

Une expérience à ne pas manquer.
Je peux vous le recommander

I have stayed in the gambia many times, and was so impressed with this apartment. the price is a lot better than other apartments in the gambia but this does not mean it is low quality, anything but! all the bedrooms are double sized, with comfy beds and wardrobes. they even included an extra matress for when i had guests over to stay. a lot of other apartments limit you to two or so guests at a time. but here you are free to do as you please. the sitting area is lovely and comfortable and the kitchen was great. pretty well equipt, but if there is something we needed and it was not supplied, we asked lamin, and he would get things for us. there are four apartments but the beautiful thing about here is that it can be as secluded or busy as you like. lamin, (the manager!!) is brilliant, anything you want to do he can help you. there is brilliant security and the maid is fantastic. the apartment was cleaned daily to a very high standard. even towels were supplied and they along with the bedding were regularly washed. the location is great, a ten min walk to senegambia, you might need someone to show u the way but once u've done it its easy to remember. there is a market near by with fruit, veg, clothing, pretty much anything you want. it is opposite a small school, which was lovely to visit, you will get to know the children, which is lovely. if you want to go out at night the best thing to do is call a taxi driver...get to know someone u trust (and who works the night shift) and then they can come pick u up at night, its a lot easier. i have numbers if u need any :) there is tv which is a bit limited, but has loads of film channels and bbc news, which is great if u just fancy a night in. when i was there, i looked around the other apartments, they are all, i would consider, to be of a high standard. they have twin rooms, some with bunk beds, so they are great for family holiday, or even party holidays!! theres space for 6 people to sleep, plus an extra matress or two, so theres plenty of space. i really reccommend this apartment for people like me who want to be away from the tourist areas, and who do not want to stay in hotels, but close enough that its easy to get to these areas when you want to, especially if you like going out at night. to get a taxi, just come out of the apartment and walk left down the road past the market, and you can SOMETIMES get taxi's from there. all in all a great place to stay, i was there 6 weeks and loved it. cant wait to go back.

Room tip: The top rooms have varandas which are great!

Room tip: Kies een appartement op de eerste etage met groot balkon. Deze zijn koel en pakken net het frisse zeebriesje.
