The accomodation is on the west coast in a very green area, with naturally also many mango trees close by. To reach there one has to branch off into a gravel road and then walk down a few steps.
There are four room. We got the 'Crab' room, which together with the 'Turtle' room is on top of the other two. When entering, we got carried away by the view from the big balcony over a forested coastline all the way to the sea. Later this view got even more spectacular with the sunset.
The room was big enough with a king-size bed, protected by a mosquito net, although there were hardly any mosquitoes in mid-March. The room gets serviced every 3rd day, on request more often.
During our 3-nights we were always alone, enjoying the solitude. The place is run, almost as a one-man-show by friendly, but rather shy Kiddousi, who helped us also with the luggage. Memorable is his cooking. It follows the rules of the Rasta's vegan Ital cooking, but is so varied and imaginative, that most non-Vegetarians will also enjoy it. These rules also imply that there is no coffee for breakfast and that alcohol is not encouraged. All meals have to be booked in advance, also for residents. They always come in three courses with very tasty selfmade herbal teas and fruit juices.
Some quite steep wooden steps lead down to a nice little, almost private beach. Thewre were no big waves, when there, but some strong currents, so one is better careful, when swimming. Going up again, there is a shower at the end of the steps.
The accomodation is very isolated, but from the main road (a 5 minutes walk up), one will always encounter a local bus either to St.George or Gouyave. A nearby restaurant called 'Eve's Cove' was closed when there. To the next tiny shop it is a 20 minutes walk towards Gouyave. In this direction are also the Concord Waterfalls, which are a lovely half-day walk (with return) from here.
