...and most likely the best value for money.
We arrived with 2 small kids and received and updrage vs the originially booked smaller house. The location of the houses is great. On the beach, near a small road, overall piece and quiet. The people were friendly, local staff provided us even with starfruits.
What was nice is that the apartments were cleaned everyday, even with dishes.
The kitchen was well-equiped, starting off with a v.good fridge:)
At the time we stayed the restaurant was not yet finished, the pool was 90% ready, but swimable already.
What was the main drawback is the lack of airconditioning or at least more efficent fans. The one we had in the bedroom was simply oldish and did not a lot in the v.hot days. 2nd, dependant on the weather were the algae. They were in the bay in bigger numbers than elsewhere on the island, making an early swim hard. Mind you, there was a nicer beach ~5min walk north.
If the price will not sky-rocket due to the availability of the pool and restaurant, the place will develop nicely. With air-con or best-in-class fans this will be a Praslin counter-offer to the overpriced hotels.
