We planned to stay for five days in July, and extended an extra day when flights were cancelled.
Leanda-Lei is centrally located, in the middle of the island, with Joy's store opposite, and the main shopping/restaurant strip 15 or 20 minutes' walk in one direction and the bowling club and Pinetrees slightly less in the other. The museum and the Kentia palm nursery are practically on your doorstep.
We were the only guests. Our apartment (19, I think) faced a large expanse of lawn fringed with garden beds and tropical trees with views of Mount Gower in the distance. Woodhens and other native birds flitted in and out of garden beds and across the lawn.
The apartment was comfortable and homely with a reasonably well-equipped kitchen (I was glad I took my own stovetop coffeemaker) and a good bathroom. Beach towels were provided, not that we had any use for them mid-winter.
Our hosts were friendly, unobtrusive, and very helpful when we had to stay the extra night. All in all, it was a very peaceful, relaxing place to stay and I couldn't recommend it more highly - even, perhaps especially, in winter.
