The villa was lovely, the rooms were well furnished and very spacious. There was a group of us and we were able to rent the whole villa. The pool and garden were both really nice and one of the many highlights of our stay was watching a group of monkeys playing in the jungle beyond the garden just a few metres from our balcony. It made an interesting change to staying right by the beach - which was still just a 10 minute walk away! It was a bit far to walk to town, but it was easy and quick to arrange a tuk tuk through Karen or Rohan, the drivers were great and even helped us and waited to bring us back again, all for out £2 :-)
Karen & Rohan along with all the others were very accommodating. They helped us with arranging many things from changing up money, to interesting trips out to transport to where our friends were getting married nearby and much more... The food at the villa was really tasty as well as being great value. The breakfast was especially good which they happily prepared for us at times ranging from 6am to 1.30pm!
Rohan organised us a tour which made up the second week of our holiday and took in a lot of sights. He came with us as our tour guide and really was brilliant. He was good fun, we were hard pushed to find anything he didn’t know the answer to, he booked us lovely hotels and we only had to mention something in passing and it was there!
We had a great holiday. Highly recommended!
