Large bungalow, quiet and lots of space. Lamin was very nice and helpful. Pity the back up generator was out of order, as the electricity in Gambia breaks down all the time. The bathrooms need renewal, and mosquitonets would be very useful.

A lovely spacious bungalow with a delightfully faded colonial feel, perfectly positioned in Cape Point Village. The location is extremely quiet (you’ll rarely hear a car go by) and has everything you need for a week or two’s stay. The good sandy beach with one of Gambia’s best (and most expensive) beach bars is literally 2 minutes walk away. There...

Management response:

Thank you for the positive review, the local 'support' guy has now been changed and the new one is contactable and will attend.

We know this area well and although when we booked we weren't exactly sure which house it was, we couldn't have been happier with the location, just a stone's throw from the beach, beach bars and the hub of Cape Point. The house itself is very roomy, with large open-plan living space with TV and wifi and a safe. The...

About the neighbourhood
Cape Point is generally speaking a quieter area than Kololi, but this is gradually changing as more shops and restaurants appear, there are a small number of restaurants and bars here along with craft stalls, mini-market and taxi rank. Calypso bar and restaurant is situated next to Ocean Bay hotel with a small lake often allowing you to view crocodiles. Bakau is a 10 minute walk from here.

The beach at Cape Point is stunning - a wide sweep of golden sand that seems to stretch into the distance; and like the area in general, it tends to be that little bit quieter than Kololi or Kotu.

Sundays is the main day when locals come to relax with their families or play a bit of football or volleyball.
