This house is amazing: so many lovely features it is hard to know where to start. The art which abounds is just wonderful: everywhere you look in the main house there are delightful pieces of unusual art. The food/cook is superb - either vegetarian or non veg - he is excellent at both. The bedrooms in the main house are just lovely. The pool area, while small, is also delightful. The gardens are wonderful too - the walk up from the boat to the house is so beautiful. The beach is a great place for a bonfire though I would not swim there with the crocodile who swims around! (Not sure if he is still there!) The bird life is fabulous - both at the house and when walking around the island. Going for walks is great and you can even cycle around the island! The staff were great - though on the noisy side at times. They will set up bbqs and music for you and bonfires.
I just loved everything about this place and would advise anyone who likes some thing a little different; quiet; birds; art; etc.
When we were there there were a few problems in the second/smaller house/annex but the owner assured me it was being sorted out. Nothing to stop you going though.
