Run by Annelies, there are 5 large rooms and 2 suites. One of the rooms and the suites are completely sea-facing (lots of turtle sightings), with wonderful big terraces. The other rooms are set behind and have 'partial sea- views'. This means that the sea can be seen from the terrace, through the trees. The rooms accommodate 3 people and... More

Wow Cocos is amazing, a place I cannot fully describe to you unless you go there to see its raw beauty yourself. You land in a tiny airport ( I wouldn't call It that) you collect your bags off of a trailer and pretty much you then step outside and are welcomed by a gorgeous warm heat. Annelies was there...

Perfect accommodation, close to airport, visitors centre, shops, club, restaurant and cafe. Air conditioning, comfortable bed, very clean, well appointed kitchen, wonderful deck to sit and enjoy view. We hired a vehicle from Graham and Annelise, this was necessary to get to swimming, surfing and fishing spots. Bikes were also available at no cost. Would return tomorrow, great holiday destination.

A lovely beachfront bungalow with all amenities needed for a relaxing and comfortable holiday. We've been warmly welcomed by Annelies at the airport. With her friendly, knowledgeable and helpful approach she made our hideaway very pleasant.

Villa was lovely, had a nice island feel with lots of amenities including washing machine, picnic basket set, umbrellas, bikes and beach towels. Staff were very friendly and informative.

I arrived back on the Cocos (Keeling) Islands after an absence of 9 years to be warmly welcomed by Annelies at the airport and shown to our beautiful bungalow "Oceanique", situated in the heart of the settlement and a few steps walk from the beach. Each morning we wandered down to the waters edge to see the turtles and small... More

Location: less than two minutes walk from the airport, the supermarket, a couple of restaurants, tourist information and the Cocos Club. Ferry bus stop one minute away. Friendly hosts: Annelies leaves you to yourself, but offers you as much friendly advice as you want when you want it. If you're flying out on a Tuesday you can keep your room... More
