Great Value and Service
We were picked up from the dock for a reasonable charge and the driver was on time. The room was clean, comfortable, and airy and the kitchen was perfectly adequate, including a big fridge. The grounds are full of lovely art and feature an observation deck. The beach is rocky but great for observing tropical fish and small hermit crabs, with lots of beautiful coral. The sandy beach is a short bus ride away as is the town, and the bus is totally easy to deal with. Our hosts were helpful and very warm, kind people. Not a luxury accommodation, but a great stay! Would return.

Great island get-away
A lovely place with a very quiet beach and a large number of shy hermit crabs. The owners are helpful and accomodating. However, the water here is too shallow to swim or make use of the lagoon in any way. It is 30+ minutes walk (along the road) to the nearest decent swimming area in Muri and a bus-ride to decent shopping - a car would definitely be useful here. Not the place if you want everything in one spot, but an excellent hide-away if you're willing to walk/drive or indulge in the hourly public transport. We had the 2-bedroom villa as the sea-front unit was under repair, which was fine for us. However, it should be noted that the wall between one bedroom and the living room did not go to the ceiling and that the cooking facilities might not support more people for full dinners, etc., both of which might be of consideration to some looking to book here. The porch was fantastic and reasonably private due to well-placed foliage.

You can hear the ocean and see the sunrise.
Our transfer did not happen and although it was not their fault, the explanation and comment was not good. Our initial welcome did not happen. We did not feel like we had made the best choice in accommodation because of this. However when the female owner came to greet us she resolved all our issues and made us feel welcomed and was very accommodating. All in all a beautiful stay. The village is a long walk away but easy by car or bike.
