What a lovely place!
Absolutely everything we'd hoped for. The location was just magnificent. Our hosts - Steve, Geraldine, Anna, Stephanie and Alone - were as kind, fun, gracious and helpful as could be.
Sitting on the front deck, watching the pounding surf, was incomparable!

Do you accept group bookings (we'd book all 12 units)? This would be for a tai chi group from NZ. Is there are covered area we could use for doing tai chi? I don't think the deck of the Lagoon Suite is big enough. Could be hire a marquee for this? Thanks.
Is there air conditioning in the units? Thanks.
No. Ceiling fans and insect screens on windows are the only cooling methods. But it does keep you connected to your environment: breeze, rain, sounds and smells.

"#5 is magnificent!"
"It's worth the extra few dollars to get the beachside rooms"
"We had a top floor room overlooking the water which was light and airy but imagine all rooms would be similar."
"Stay in the bungalows that share only one wall and not too close to the outside bar"
"choose room 12.. you get the best views and plus there are 2 bedrooms with their own bathrooms, huge lounge and deck area outside."
US$ 147 - US$ 201 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
