“Short but really nice stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

My GF and I went there for only 2 days as we wanted to visit the west / south west coast. Daniel was a very great host and was really welcoming. We were offered free fruits from the front yard during our stay. They were tasty!
The room was clean and it was only 200m from the surf spot where we hanged a lot.

If you want a place to easily access the south of the island (Teehupoo by exemple) or if you want to surf Papara, this is the place to be.

Thanks again to our host: Vladimir and Delphine from Paris.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

Loved this place. The staff came and got me from the airport as requested which was a lot cheaper than a taxi. The owners are lovely people. The lodge is very basic but clean and I felt very comfortable here. The showers and toilets are in seperate block which wasn't a problem at all.

It was the owners granddaughters 1st birthday while I was staying there and they invited me and the others guests to the party, we went for an hour or so and the whole family were very friendly and were offering the local food and explaining what it was and how it was cooked.

The lodge has a massive garden with loads of fruit trees, they're happy for you to try these :)
My hey have a pet dog called Rocky who's very cute, he comes and says hi every now and again.

Lodge is just over the road from the surf beach. Big waves and spent a few hours just watching the surfers. The sand is black so gets very hot, make sure you take some shoes.

Overall a brilliant stay and would defiantly go back
