  • Nice place for a big group

    Nice place for a big group. Not too far from any of the beaches around Matapouri and with enough privacy for all of our group of three families. We had a few issues with electrical supply and the sanitation but the hosts were accessible, available and quick to resolve. They also gave us a nice little basket of goodies to thank us for our patience which was appreciated.

  • no ironing board, no tea towels (not hygienic), no beds made up...

    no ironing board, no tea towels (not hygienic), no beds made up in the lounges , sheets of poor quality, no soap, no toilet paper. Not told we had to pay extra for cleaning, our understanding was it was included. Disappointing

  • Excellent set up - highly recommended

    Excellent set up - highly recommended. Just the water supply was a bit cloudy - the price you pay for stunning weather. Will stay again for sure.
