“Palm trees, snorkelling, Wigmores...what more could you want?”
Reviewed September 4, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We've stayed in this location before, at the house next door, so we knew this would be a winner. Enough room for 2 mid-life parents and three young adults, aged 18 to 22; snorkelling straight off the lawn; an entertaining parade of chickens; a great sheltered outdoor area; and Wigmores, just across the road, so we could shop as many times a day as we wanted to. Went there often, because there's a constant stream of local delicacies pouring in. The cakes are to die for.

The house is huge. So much room. And the kitchen has everything you could imagine you'll need. Great that there was Cluedo for the evenings. We bought a few DVDs with us, because local TV is a bit limited (but who needs TV when there are fish to watch!). We trained up a snorkeller who had a Go Pro and have some amazing underwater movies as a result. Saw many giant clams. Lots of morays. And I think I saw an octopus.

We'll be back!

“Absolutely great house and location”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Ann's beach house was perfect for our stay with large bedrooms and plenty of open space in the kitchen and lounge areas. House was spotlessly clean and well presented. Perfect beach for swimming, kayaking and snorkeling. Fantastic having a cafe and a supermarket within a minutes' walk away having fresh fruit available everyday as well as freshly baked goodies .
Really enjoyed our stay.

“Fabulous spot on the best beach on the island.”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Ann's Beach Home is just that...a family home on the beach. Comfortable, spacious, meticulously clean, this home will easily accommodate 3 couples or a couple of families. With the shop across the road and a bus stop 100 metres away, every need is easily met. Super safe beach, even got my 77 mother in snorkelling. If you are not into the resort scene, want to be semi self catering and have your very own beach, this is the place to be.

“Fantastic!!!”

This was our 2nd holiday at Anns Beach Home and it felt like coming home. Huge improvements have been made since last year - a credit to Rachel & Ann - particularly the added security grille over the louvre windows. Was great to have these windows open for air flow on those balmy nights. Rachel kept in touch throughout our 2 weeks without being intrusive. Got to know Sharon next door who showed us a good time - hilarious!!! Anyone who stays here won't be disappointed - immaculately clean house with everything you need in a great location. Only suggestion I can think of to make it perfect would be some sun loungers, other than that it's as close to perfect as can be!

“Give the resorts a miss, come here instead, you won't regret it!”
Reviewed September 10, 2013 for a stay in August 2012

We had a family holiday with 5 adults, and we had a fabulous time at Ann's Beach Home. The house is really spacious, which is nice when there are a lot of people. The location is awesome, right on the beach, and it's a nice, sandy, uncrowded beach too. For added value, Wigmore's store is just across the road, so very convenient.

I have stayed at a resort here before, which was nice enough, but this is so much better and costs so much less. You have your own space, you practically have your own beach. We cooked a BBQ every night, had a blast.

Tony is a great host too, gave us great tips, much appreciated.

Everyone in the family had an awesome time, and we plan on returning next year :)
