If you appreciate tranquillity in beautiful natural surroundings, this is the place.Tom Hinds is an excellent host who will do anything to make your stay comfortable and interesting. It was very enjoyable to chat with him every day. We weren't able to participate in the walks he offered but we enjoyed following the marked trails in the forest on our own.
Our bungalow was elevated with a wonderful view over the garden and wooded hills to the ocean. The air was cool and louvres permitted a gentle breeze throughout the cottage. Two sets of French windows led from the lounge to the balcony on to which we moved the lounge and dining furniture to enjoy the view and the sounds of nature throughout our stay. We were awoken by birdsong and went to bed to the sound of crickets and frogs. Monkeys were to be seen in the trees behind the cottages and occasionally, when all was quiet, in the grounds enjoying the fruit on the guava trees. We could hear them chattering in the trees in the late afternoon.
The pool is small but very pleasant for a cooling swim after an excursion. The open air restaurant, overlooking the same beautiful view, offers delicious lunches cooked by a very good local chef. We experienced only one slight problem: weakening of the wi-fi signal as the number of guests increased. Tom was looking at a solution as we left.
It’s important to establish how to meet Tom on arrival.
We loved it here.It’s not posh but so friendly and in tune with nature . Hope to return soon
