Just got back after a 5 day stay.
The villa was very well appointed, clean and well maintained - with pretty much everything you need for a luxurious, private and relaxing stay. Incl - large well furnished rooms, high quality fit out, well sized bedroom, very nicely appointed bathroom, aircon + ceiling fans, fully equipped kitchen, your own pool in private sheltered courtyard, a large comfortable lounge with flatscreen tv and surround sound system and a good sized deck overlooking the fantastic lagoon ie. absolute beachfront.
The villa is located on the beach and you can step off your private deck straight onto the white sand beach, with views of the sea/lagoon from basically every room. Waking and going to sleep with wthe sea lapping at the shore only metres away was great.
Location was also very private with a max of approx 8 or so people walking past on any given day. The beach - our beach! - was great for a swim, snorkel (lots of fish only a little way out) - there is coral in the lagoon - so reef shoes make it easier to get in/out of the water. Snorkel gear and kayaks are included with the villa.
Location is good also with shops, restaurants, car/scooter rental places and tour options close by ie. walking distance. Definitely recommend hiring a scooter so you can travel the raro way : )
The staff - Chad and Marisha - were polite, friendly and helpful. Transfers were included with our stay and we dropped into the supermarket on the way from the airport to the villa so we could do a little shop. Room was turned over on the 3rd day. We also took advantage of the late checkout for a small additional fee - which effectively gave us the best part of another day. Overall very happy with the service/staff.
Liked - The quality and privacy of the villa. The fantastic beachfront location.
Disliked - Nothing - other than having to leave. : )
