You could walk to town in 15 mins, or wait out the front of hotel for regular buses. Security is excellent, but security lights are very bright and if you...

Thanks for your complimentary comments. Yes we agree the Garden Cottage is ideal for families as has a spacious living area, and balcony with BBQ for outdoor dining. Glad you enjoyed your stay, and hopefully we'll see you back another time.

I have nothing but great things to say about this place. I stayed here for 3 nights in June in a single room and was really impressed. The place is more of a guesthouse for long-term volunteers and as a result, it's got a really nice and homely feel to it. The managers are so friendly and helpful and the...

the owner of this accomodation is a small business manager, but he goes all out to assist people who stay. I'll write more later, but the people and locals who stayed with him during the cyclone were well looked after, including the planning of water supplies, when there was no infrastructure. Afterwards, when many other accomodations where just saying no...

A truly special place for special people, with an ambience you can't buy. Six units tucked away in an exotic tropical garden. It’s like visiting a friend's house instead of being in a commercial resort. From the Waterside Chalet, to the Garden Cottage that is ideal for two couples or a family group, to the single room studios, the care to detail makes Seachange Lodge that very special place. ... more   less
