The villa's location is as described- "Sensational". It almost feels like on the footsteps of paradise... The interior is divided into two sections- the main one with a ground and first floors. It has a nice setup and the view from the balcony is amazing. It is quite comfortable as the second part comprises of two detached rooms with washrooms making it very practical for a group of friends to preserve some level of privacy.

The host and his wife are vey hospitable and ensure that your stay at this paradise is really enjoyable and relaxing.
We spent a wonderful week in the Villa. Vinodh and his staff could not have made us feel more welcome and looked after. We were traveling with our 1 year old, and it was a perfect safe environment for him to roam. The beach is right on the doorstep and wonderful for sunset walks, not so wonderful for swimming due too the reef but it wasnt a problem with the pool. We went for the luxury of having the chef there for the duration food was amazing and he even made separate meals for our little boy. One small gripe and would in no way let this put you off staying. The staff would purchase the groceries and it often felt like the prices were quite inflated. Other than that the place was perfect, would highly recommend booking a stay here. We did not want to leave, but will hopefully be back one day. Massive thanks to Vinodh and all the staff.
Had a great time. Well recommended.
Отличная вилла, для уединения с океаном! Персонал очень дображелательный, по Вашему желанию Вам приготовят еду - всё что мы заказывали было очень вкусно! Повар молодец! На территории виллы обитают очень забавные животные: обезьяна (которая очень любит по утрам приходить за бананами), очаровательная игуана и весёлый бурундук. Общее впечатление о вилле очень позитивные. Советуем, Вам понравится!
The property in itself is as it looks but it needs work. The whole house is dusty and needs a good cleaning. The doors and windows in the bedrooms are either broken or breaking. The curtains are falling off the rods and offer no shade from the sun if one wants to sleep in. ALL 3 showers have no water pressure which makes it almost impossible to have a good shower after a long day out or a swim. The water heaters in the 2 rooms in the garden are connected in some way so that if 1 room needs hot water, both heaters need to be switched on... very strange.
The night watchman is very attentive and good at his work but the 2 day staff leave much to be desired. Their "service" is very cursory. We were quite appalled to find biscuits we had on a plate placed on the table with not so much as a tissue under it just so the plate could be washed and put away by the staff before they left. When we came home, we found them sitting in front of the TV.
What was probably most troubling was that we did not get much privacy while the day staff were around. They would stand there and listen to our conversations and plans rather than make themselves scarce since they were not required. Our information and plans were then somehow made known to the tuk tuk drivers parked outside the house who would hassle our driver each time he came to pick us up. They would insist that we use them rather than engage our own driver. We had to lie and make excuses about where we wanted to go just to avoid being hassled by them. Something needs to be done about this. I should be able to decide who provides me transport without justifying my decision to the tuk tuk driver hanging around outside.
Overall, I would say the property location and set up is good but it can be so much better if proper staff were brought in and the facilities cleaned and repaired.
