After splendid Otentic we enjoyed this thoughtfully designed gem on the West coast. Relaxed Cafe in the morning, all facilities around town and the vibe of Tamarin Beach a short drive away. A car is helpful. Beautiful setting, spacious apartments and a sense for design which made our stay very pleasant. Highly recommended!

A few of us went for lunch. The service was good and it was a very relaxing setting. My friend had a burger and he really enjoyed it. The fish was superb and everyone enjoyed the dishes that were ordered even if there wasn't a huge choice. I'd love to see a vegetarian option but all in all the experience...

I had the pleasure of staying at the Vanilla House for a week's time. The atmosphere is lovely, being nestled in the forest, very peaceful. The rooms are very lovely, the showers are amazing - large with raindrop shower head. You may get lucky to have a gecko or two visit you! There's a resident rooster who roams the property...

We spent one Sunday at Vanilla House in two well equipped rooms with an interconnecting door between them - perfect for families who want to be together. Located within a quiet lush garden, Vanilla House also has a restaurant open on weekdays only. We fortunately were only minutes away from Tamarin and Flic en Flac so getting food was not...

We stayed for two nights around Christmas time. I like the decor in the room. It's like a little studio - with a small kitchenette. Breakfast was served in the courtyard. They gave us little Christmas ginger man on Christmas day. I love their homemade granola! As others have mentioned - lots of frogs, chickens and birds. but we were...

“There are nine identical rooms and the way they are set is such that they all face each other.”

“All the rooms seemed pretty good. But if the TV is important to you, make sure you ask the lady at checkin - we asked the "gardien" who had no idea.”

“Pretty much all rooms are the same - none have a view of the beach and the rooms are all facing each other in a courtyard so no real privacy to speak of.”
