“Home in Paridise”
Reviewed 29 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Wow, this house is defiantly like home but in paradise. The location of this house on Tamarin Bay on the west side of the island and is right on the river and 80 steps from the front door to the beach with a view of both from inside the house. Beautiful white sand with light rolling waves that echo over the bay at night. It has a completely fitted kitchen and is serviced daily by Mary. Three full bedrooms with fans and aircon. We were collected from the airport and on our arrival at the house Anil the owner was there to meet and great us. We had the use of a car for the week which is included in the rental. Flic n Flac is the nearby village with a Spar supermarket that has everything to make the week of self catering a breeze.The public beach in Flic n Flac is great for snorkeling. We will defiantly be returning next year. Thank you Anil for a wonderful time.

Reviewed 23 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed here 8th Nov till 21st Nov 2015. The property is in the most stunning location on a private beach to the front and the stunning Black river to the back of the property.
Maid service was daily and if we needed anything Anil the owner was on hand to make sure we had a fantastic holiday.
The house comes with a car, which is a must at this location as you are about a 10km drive from Flic n Flac and 5km from the local supermarket.
The house has everything you need even down to a water cooler with a plentiful supply of water for our whole trip. There is WiFi, a microwave, fridge freezer, washing machine, coffee machine, beach towels and everything we needed to make our stay perfect.
Every morning we had breakfast on the terrace with some beautiful bird life, we watched little lizards in the garden and watched fish jumping in the river, it's a location I could only dream of before we arrived.
Thank you Anil for a wonderful stay.

“Just what we needed!”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Fantastic location and cosy house with lovely, helpful owners. Anil and Krish thank you so much for all of your help and advice. You made our stay so easy which only adds even more to the degree of calmness we found. The Views from both sides of the house are wonderful. You can sit and watch the river all day if you wish and then take a few short steps to have a sundowner on the beach watching the sunset. Lots of restaurants within a 10 minute drive help to make this a very relaxing getaway. Yes, we would recommend this to friends and yes we would go there again! Thanks again Anil and family. We had a lovely time.

“Beautiful Location”
Reviewed 11 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Anil, Bella and kumaar were delightful owners. We were given mangoes from the trees in the garden. They also brought me a birthday plant and local food which was delicious. The views over the river from the rear patio were amazing. It is only a few steps to Tamarin beach and the sea. As it was a holiday weekend there was some noise from the locals camping on the beach but it did not disturb us. There is a pleasant and easy walk to Flic an Flac along the beach and through the woods. Security is very good with guards around the gated community all of the time. We had some problems with an invasion of ants but once killed it was ok. A number of cockroaches and large spider did not go down well with my wife! The a/c in the downstairs bedroom was welcome. The kitchen needs to be updated throughout as units are really old. Bed linen, towels and curtains (which were transparent) should be better quality. It is fairly basic accommodation so do not expect luxury but we got used to it and really enjoyed our week there. Maid did the washing each day. It would be nice to have a couple of sun loungers for the garden. I used the kayak to paddle up the river which was lovely. It is a bit of a drive to supermarkets so we stocked up rather than buy fresh bread each day. The local diving centre was excellent.
The location and the owners make it 4 star.
