10/10 Exceptional

Lovely property managed since June 2022 by a knowledgeable and friendly kiwi couple. Recommend if you are looking for a smaller place to stay with a plunge pool and a lovely private beach facing towards the sunset. The owners gave a fantastic overview to the property including the free kayaks, snorkels and reef shoes. Room has a kitchen for cooking and there areno fewer than 20 restaurants ranging from resorts to a local bakery within 15 minutes walk. Rooms was clean and had its private seating area. Recommend if you are looking for a quiet stay with warm hosts

Upon arrival, host were very accommodating. We arrived late because of the flight delay, but hosts made sure we are looked after and comfortable. Cleaned our place every after 2 days, and restock everything. Walking towards the beach woth an awesome view. Great service. Will definitely come back again.

The property is in need of a complete refurb. Don’t be fooled by the images, the reality is cramped, tired and tatty. I

The location is excellent - right on the beach with snorkelling and kayaks available. Relaxing pool and BBQ areas. Very useful to be able to rent car too. Accommodation had everything we needed and felt very private.

10/10 Exceptional

The Cooks Oasis provides a clean villa in a perfect location. The hosts, Matt and Adele are really friendly and helpful. They assisted with booking taxis, making reservations, and suggesting places to visit. Villa 2 was perfect for our family of four, including two teenagers. We had a difficult time finding accommodations with one king and two twin beds until we found this one. The beach was beautiful and relatively private. In addition, there were several restaurants close by and a bakery with delicious pastries for breakfast. We’d definitely stay here again.

Matt, Adele and family what lovely people... we had some great conversations and felt like family but were never intrusive. Solitude and peace. Great place to unwind, beach a stone throw away. My room was great to come home to at the end of the day. Comfortable lovely bed. I Was out most of the day.

8/10 Very Good

The hosts were lovely. Negative points: although it is advertised as providing air conditioning, this service is available at an extra cost of $30.00/day. Again, it is advertise as providing wi-fi services. However, these must be be contracted from the provider, at $50.00 per 500 MB ( it is painfully slow). The villas are nice, but crammed together. They are extremely hot during the day and air does not circulate easily. The shower temperature is difficult to regulate. Hot water comes in waves. The villa provides kayaks, ridge shoes and videos. There are three (or four? can't remember) kayaks, all for one person and one for three persons, none for two.

8/10 Very Good

Nice location and a lovely warm welcome when we arrived! We had the use of snorkeling gear and kayaks. Unfortunately the dogs in the area kept us up barking, so not the Cooks Oasis fault! Also our fan wasnt very good, it couldn't sustain the higher speed and kept slowing down then speeding back up. Overall a nice place to stay.
