It is a great location, centrally located, the perfect place to get away. If your lucky Layla the dog may come and visit you as well. We would have happily stayed for longer if it was available. I would highly recommend this place and can't wait to come back.

Amazing location. Wonderful verandah and living accommation. Better suited to family with children as second bedroom rather small. Very rustic and no frills but we enjoyed our stay enormously. The views from the verandah were spectacular. Colette was charming and very helpful.

The Furnishings....

The furnishings are organic and textures are of the earth: linen, cottons, sea grass, raffia, sisal, bamboo, knotted leather and sea shells. The organic connection is not limited to the furnishings; the walls and floor are treated with plant oil on the inside and the house uses the African sun as its source of energy.
