We enjoyed our week long stay with Peter and Karin plus their lovely dog kota. Their 2 bedroom, 2 bath Bure with fully equipted kitchen and 24 hour power was quiet and comfortable. Their property is very special and we felt lucky that they allow guests to share their little piece of paradise. We especially enjoyed the swimming and snorkeling... More

We had a very pleasant 5 night stay at Karin's Garden in August 2013. The self-catering accommodation was clean and tidy and there was hot and cold running water. Electricity was available from the generator in the morning and evening. Peter and Karin were helpful hosts who respected our privacy. The verandah became our favourite place to sit, relax and...

Peter and Karin were great hosts, there when we needed them but in no way obtrusive. The cottage had a beautiful sweeping view down the lawn and out to the ocean and was cosy and homely. The resident dog was a permanent fixture on our verandah which was nice and he accompanied us whenever we headed down to the beach... More

Our second trip staying at Karin's Garden was just as pleasant as our first. The accommodation remains ideal for a couple or a family. The bure was always spotlessly clean, very well equipped for self catering,and ideal situation. A walk down a flight of steps takes you to the most perfect spot for snorkelling or just lounging on your own... More

By random I found this wonderful place in haven. A quiet and peaceful area let me relax for one week. One day Peter guide me through a 4 hours walk to the Lavena waterfall which was a never forgetting experience. If you have the chance you need to try this. Unfortunately the German homemade meals provided by Karin let my... More

Peter was at the airport to meet us, and then took us to a nearby store so we could get the groceries we needed, and also to a liquor store for beer, before taking us the short distance to our bure (cottage). It is a nice comfortable place to stay, very clean and well equipped, with a lovely view across... More

If you're after a very relaxing holiday in a tropical paradise, with a 'base' to sleep and cook at (not a resort) this is the place to stay. The location is great, with about a 200m walk across grass, followed by a steep staircase descent to a reef that is great to snorkel on. At the top of the staircase... More
