New Old Dutch House was our first stop. We had opted for the "villa" near the "beach". What we got was a tacky house about 15 minutes away from the Fort by tuktuk. The house was nowhere near the beach and was obviously someone's main home. The worst was finding a rat in the sink sucking on my lip balm. The rat was as surprised as I was and fled as soon as s/he could down the drain in the shower. The shower ran only cold water unless you let it run for a very LONG time. Plus the nightly rate was exorbitant for what we got in return. The staff was nice enough. The caretaker of the home was very nice. But this place should be a last ditch option.
