Villa Noor was a wonderful spot. It was our own little piece of tropical paradise for a few days. The house is quite large and the upstairs deck is an amazing spot to see all the wildlife in the jungle area around the house. We loved spotting lizards, howler monkeys, butterflies, crabs, and birds in the beautiful gardens. The beach accessible by the path was almost always empty. We had high waves while there, due to the rain, and loved using the boogie board. We hope to return when the water is calmer to snorkel in the surrounding reef. It was nice to have a dryer available since towels and bathing suits do not get dry as quickly as we are used to in our dry climate.

I currently live in Montreal, but I studied hotel management in switzerland in the past so I had the opportunity to discover so many places (especially in Europe) and meet so many people from different cultures. I usually travel using airbnb if we are a group of people, or, if alone, I stay in hostels, etc. I am a guest and host with Airbnb. I am helping my mother to rent some of the properties she has.
