Very peaceful spot, the cottage is slightly separate from other buildings on the property, which also features an amazing swimming pool, all of which is surrounded by tropical and trees and greenery.
John was a great host, we had some issues with internal flights on the way which meant getting there much later than expected, John was quick to communicate and assure us that we could turn up late at night.
The location is great and a 10-15 min walk to Marina Beach, however you really need a car to get to other beaches - we went surfing on Southbroom beach (15min drive away). The stunning Oribi Gorge is about an hour’s drive away and well worth visiting.
The only slight downside was the Wi-Fi connection, which was quite weak - it went down at one point, which wasn’t John’s fault - so don’t expect to be able to stream music, but it was actually quite nice to be disconnected and listen to the sounds of insects and birds in the forest at night.
