Austin and his family made us feel very welcome and we had a relaxing week enjoying their hospitality. The beach is just a few steps away and is safe for swimming. Local beach side restaurants are close by for drinks and meals in the day. We thoroughly enjoyed breakfasts and dinner here which were home cooked and delicious. It is... More

This is one of the nicest locations on the beach and way, way cheaper than the super expensive Marari Beach Resort that is just a short walk down the beach. You get the same beach access for a lot less money. And, the location is much nicer than those guesthouses that are set back from the beach. Rooms are fairly... More

We spent two wonderful weeks with Austin, Jasmine, Anne Marie and Brian in early February. The villa is located just mere metres from Marari Beach, away from all traffic and noise. You step outside the villa and you are amongst the local fishermen. The accommodation is basic but clean and comfortable. Austin is very accommodating and helpful and Jasmine keeps... More

We chose this home stay as we wanted to stay on the beach. The owner Mr Austin was very welcoming. Food was okay. Vehicle arrangements were good, The location was nice with the sea view. The beach was very silent but had many crabs which was scary. We weren't happy with the service. There was no water in the bathroom... More

Austin's place is right on the beach, you literally walk out the door onto the sand between the coconut palms & fishermans' gear to find a pristine beach you can walk for miles in either direction. The place is fairly basic and we were there during the off/monsoon season so we were downstairs in the non-AC rooms, rather humid but... More
