The service was great, Mr. Francis and Mr. John were taking great care of us. The food Mr. Francis had prepared for us was very delicious. The best cook ever!
The property is in very nice location, close to the beach. You can hear the ocean.
I loved the view from the terrace.
What was surprise for me, the beach boys were everywhere but despite of that we had a wonderful time.

We spent a heavenly week at Colobus Cottage. We felt ourselves relaxing from the moment we arrived. The bedrooms are very comfortable, and meals are served on the verandah, which has an unbeatable view down to the beach and the clear blue Indian Ocean. The fantastic cook prepared whatever we asked for - from a delicious breakfast, through to wonderful fish and prawn curries.

The reef just below the cottage is amazing - we spent hours snorkelling and finding colourful star fish, exotic shells and other creatures at low tide. A few hundred metres to the right is a beautiful sandy beach perfect for swimming and jumping through waves.

We can't wait to return!
