We had a lovely stay 12 June 2015. Sean was welcoming, friendly, and made us the most fabulous rump steak for dinner!! Great bed in the Elephant suite, and loved the BIG bath. Highly recommend Boven Villa to everyone

We had a super nice stay at Boven Villa. Sumptuous breakfast (and delicious dinners prepared on request). The owners are stunning people and assisted us with fabulous information around the area as well as surrounding areas. Nice hiking trails, horse riding and lots of site viewing - not too far from the caves and various other places of interest. Thanks... More

The place is really beautiful and a relaxing break from hectic city life. Sean shows a lot of concern for his guests. I liked the fact we were able to be as noisy as we please. The rooms were really beautiful and in a very clean state.
