Don't expect to have the whole unit with kitchen and family room, which will share with other, especially the family room is filled with the owner and guest stuffs.
3 bed rooms were not available on the first day when we arrived.
The location is good.
The manager Ali is very cooperative.
Be prepare with antimosquitoes repellent.
Staffs are friendly.
Ali and Aziz really gave us the "low down" on everything, it was obvious they had experience with foreigners, expected of course but always had stuff arranged for us.
Room was awesome with sea view, couldn't complain :)
No swimming pool though (insignificant anyway)
Top notch! Azizi is fantastic and his team are good at taking care of you. Food was excellent from them, they put us on good snorkeling, and we found good surf.
Price was excellent for what they offer and right on the sand, can't beat it.
The best place. I was really impressed and the service was excellent. I had a great time with my family here.Amazing interior design and delicious food.Can't wait to come back to this paradise!!!
The White Sands Boutique Villa to me was not a luxurious accommodation as I expected it to be. The beds were uncomfortable, the kitchen was not well equipped with even the basic of utensils, the bed sheets and bath towels smelled like smoke, the cleaning staff were not properly trained by the owner on housekeeping skills. The outside seating area was the best of the accommodation and the location of the villa was excellent. We decided to stay 3 days longer when we first booked this villa and asked the owner to update our booking accordingly. She notified us that there would be no problem and that we could pay her the money in cash when we got there. We wanted to pay for the extra days through to her bank account, however the owner insisted on cash and threatened to remove my family and myself from the property if we did not pay her in cash. I was shocked by her rudeness and behaviour. This was upsetting as she made us feel like criminals. Nevertheless, the staff were friendly, especially Azizi the manager of the property who was helpful in many aspects. I don't recommend this vacation rental for families with young children as the rooms are not linked together, each room is on its own, one inside the main house and the other 2 in the back.
The owner was extremely difficult and rude with the extra days we opted to stay

My family had a perfect experience and a very lovely time at White Sands Villa. The house is situated right at the beach and has and absolutely astonishing view of the Indian Ocean's saphhire waters. In terms of service and conditions the villa had everything a guest could require and even if you do find something missing, you can always count on the house's manager Azizi to find you the appropriate tours you are interested in or any exotic food from the island to taste. We spend 10 amazing days there and managed to capture the island's magic atmosphere :)
Staying in this villa was like heaven! Spacious room, bathroom, decorations throughout the villa, overlooking the blue of the terrace where there is always something eats, drinks and a pleasant chat !! The owner and manager of the villa are superb, always there when you need tips for trips, for food, for stories about the locals! The food is homemade and delicious! What we wanted to eat and drink or go somewhere, that's what we got! Our stay at the White Sands villa was made our honeymoon even more beautiful and more romantic! Definitely recommend staying at the White Sands Villa!
