From the web site, it is just the kind of accomodation that I love - well designed, easy going, strong local flavour, and the promise of good food. Village House is beautifully built - full marks for that - but I did not enjoy my stay at all. The room was way too small. The only windows open out onto the central "courtyard" area and you look straight into somebody else's room (they are all on same level). I couldn't sleep at night because you can hear all the noise that's coming from the bar. Outside the room, there is plenty of communal sitting area, but given it's all within a small property, there's not much to do apart from reading. The pool is extremely narrow so it holds two people max. There's a TV room upstairs but the roof leaks so the floor was wet when we went. As for access to "nature"? There's a very unattractive beach nearby and female guests are told not to walk around in swimming costumes. And it took us hours of walking along a major car road to reach a badly maintained "rainforest walk". The food was quite good though.
