Had a wonderful 10 weeks at the Villa late in 2013, whilst working mostly in Blantyre. One of the happiest hotels I have visited anywhere.
The place was a wonderful mix of friendly people with a family atmosphere between staff and guests. Self-catering bungalow was spacious and tidy - don't expect luxury but do expect a really helpful team on-site.
My attempts to film the genet that lives in the palm tree became part of the local folklore and I was treated with every courtesy by everyone who worked there.
Nothing was too much trouble and it was like staying with unobtrusive friends. The grounds are home to a host of wildlife and lots of visiting birds. Everything from land crabs to chameleons. It is like living in your own personal miniature wildlife reserve - and totally safe.
