This secluded set of villas are a real gem nestled within the coconut plantations of the hill country. Very relaxing atmosphere with local food available on request. The main villa also has a great swimming pool. The staff are very accomodating and welcoming.

The accommodation was excellent, the staff were fantastically friendly and helpful and the views were amazing. Tuk tuks always available to transport you from one villa to another if you didn't fancy the walk up the hill. Beautiful sunsets and lots of birds to watch while you lazed by the pool.

Recently stayed at Jim's Farm, on our arrival we were welcomed by our hosts Kevin and Jesse, and from the time we arrived were made to feel like family friends and not hotel guests.

Guests can roam around freely but...
