“Tranquility and warmth to the bones”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2011

Restoration of the soul and body come quickly here. From the depths of a freezing British winter to the warmth of the air and sea. Either sleep til lunch of get up to watch the sun break the surface directly in to your veranda at 6.00. Your cook and maid will be as visible as you want them. They are sweet. Breakfast, lunch, dinner as and when you want it. And the sea is a stone's through from the veranda. I read, ate fish, swam, made plans and walked occassionally to a nearby beach restaurant.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2010

We spent a week at 420 South staying in our own cottage overlooking a quiet garden and then on to the Indian Ocean. The beach is perfect coral sand and is protected by a reef a few hundred metres offshore.
The atmosphere was quiet and friendly with excellent food prepared by our dedicated chef - he will also shop for you - while fresh vegetables and fish are brought to the door! A maid comes in every day to tidy and sort out any laundry. The cottage had no air conditioning but with ceiling fans and the breeze from the Ocean it was always a comfortable temperature.
We loved it and will certainly be back. Thank you Hilary - the owner - for a great week!!
