8/10 Very good

Very homely, bachy feel..super helpful and caring onsite manager. The pool is pretty small, but the set up around it is fun bright colours, nice BBQ area and a bonfire site. We probably won't book again because the location is right on one of the 7 channels, which are sometimes dangerous depending on the tides...and my eldest kid is a very confident spearo and diver...and didn't feel safe to swim in the water. Though a very dynamic piece of water to look at, and the views are great from your rooms.

Our host made us feel very welcome during our short stay. Room had amazing view and great size for a studio. No beach out front but we just jumped off the jetty into clear warm sea. Great location too within short stroll to village shops. Would stay again.

Returning for another stay!
This was a return trip for us as a couple, having previously stayed as a family group. Lovely place to stay, friendly staff and atmosphere with well appointed rooms, everything you need for a self catering holiday (although not far at all from Muri for the night market restaurants and supermarkets and only 10 minute drive to town). Very comfortable beds and nice swimming pool and bbq area. Will definitely be back to stay.
