My only reluctance in writing this review is that this place will get so popular it will book out when I want to come back. I stayed here last year and was delighted to come back a year later and discover that the family had realised their dream of building extra rooms, small restaurant and bar (well its on the way).
Rooms are 200 000 RP ($20) a night for two people including breakfast and wi-fi ($15 for a single). Rooms come with your own bathroom and are cleaned daily. I joked with my friend when we went out one morning and left our shoes facing different directions that by the time we came back an hour later they would be all lined up the same way. Yep, I was right.
Breakfast is omelette or pancakes, fresh tropical fruit and tea/coffee, served with a smile. Never disappoints.
Ok so you will be woken by roosters and doves, but I can sure think of worse ways to be woken. There is some construction noise during the day, but this will be wrapped up by the end of the year and didn't prevent my afternoon naps.
Mama can organise anything you need- laundry, fresh coconuts, transport, tours, you name it. Her English is not awesome so be sure to clarify prices, but she can get you a good price.
But the real selling point of this place is the family. They are sweet and caring and genuinely want only to make your experience a great one. Mama wants to know what you are up to all the time and Papa will do his best to crack jokes. Embrace it and you'll have a fantastic time.
