My wife and I stayed at Pweza cottage with another couple at the end of Feb 2013, left a couple days before elections!
Pweza cottage was the right choice - beautiful design and comfortable. Spacious enough for two couples to have privacy, and the front porch was ridiculously comfortable.
Cheryl was great with advice and just a positive and helpful attitude, as was Arty.
Almost every day we had Ali cook for us fresh lobster, mussels, fish, oysters, prawn and salads. In the morning we would go to the local fisherman who are so polite and ask for the day's request. By afternoon we had a feast.
We rented a car though Cheryl was extremely helpful finding out options.
The fridge full of beer and wine as well as needed spices etc in the main office was a lifesaver for sure!
Every question we had was answered and Cheryl and Arty assisted with arranging trips and everything.
I was concerned in the beginning that the accommodation was "bare but in fact everything is provided, hot water and cleaning and towels, and food options are easy, fresh and delicious.
We would come back here in a heartbeat and have already recommended Sand Island to a bunch of friends.
