We recently spent four nights in a private villa (#4) at the Pink Flamingo Resort and would love to have spent longer. The staff have a wonderfully hands-off approach with an honour bar, help-yourself DVD and book library and everything you're likely to need an arms reach away. We never saw anyone else unless we went looking for them and it was a very peaceful, private experience. Plenty of wildlife to be found around the premises including bats, geckos, huntsmen (!!), cane toads and domestic cats to keep you on your toes at night - but nothing made it indoors. :)
The main swimming pool was just beautiful and just perfect for a midnight skinny-dip and a cocktail (apparently...), we spent almost three hours in there on the night we arrived and had it all to ourselves, didn't see anyone else in the pool for the whole stay. LOVED the outdoor bath/shower - there's nothing like a morning/afternoon/evening shower under the sun/stars or a relaxing soak with a book under the palm trees listening to the birds and topping up our tans with a beer - and all a relaxing 15 minute stroll from Macrossan Street or the beach.
We WILL be back. <3
