I stayed here in May to meet up with my husband (arriving from elsewhere). I was alone for the first night, and received wonderful service from the owners, Jules and Kat, who could not have been more helpful. Food was served outside on the terrace, a lovely little area with large parasols. The menu has something for everyone and is well cooked and beautifully presented. Staff are friendly and efficient.
My suite (Twiga) was large and well furnished with an enormous bathroom, with TV screens in both the lounge area and the bedroom. My husband arrived in the wee small hours, but Jules and Kat had made sure that he could gain access to the property and find the right room(!), then a long lie and a leisurely delicious breakfast back on the terrace, all very laid back and welcoming. While you're here, go to Kamilli , a local set up which does lovely hand printed fabrics turned into aprons, cushion covers, oven gloves and the like, a perfect memento of your stay and great presents. Marula Studio on the same lane also worth a visit.
All in all, highly recommended!
