Super accueil merci pour les croissants chauds au petit matin et pour votre gentillesse.
Отдыхали с мужем с 23.09 по 27.09 в этом замечательном месте! Очень нестандартный экологичный дом, который утопает в зелени. Номер с огромной бамбуковой кроватью большой, светлый, красивая веранда. До пляжа Бо Валлон 10 мин пешком (пляж один из самых лучших для купания на острове). Магазин, пекарня рядом. две очаровательных дружелюбных собаки.
Об Эрике хочу сказать отдельно. Гостеприимен, всегда готов помочь, ответит на любой вопрос, напоит, накормит :)
Эрик организовал нам свадебную церемонию в будистском стиле, это была фантастика. Прекрасное место церемонии (большой сад, статуя Будды, цветы, свечи), интересный обряд, вкусный ужин, романтичная обстановка.
Если у Вас романтичная поездка, даже не думайте, останавливайтесь у Эрика. Если Вам не нужно заключать официальный брак, то искренне советую пройти этот милый обряд. Эрик организует все сам, от приветственного коктейля в его доме, до проведения непосредственно церемонии (он выступает в роли Будды). Если вы не владеете английским, Эрик предоставит переводчика Елену, которая помимо перевода расскажет много интересного о жизни на острове, очень обаятельный и милый человек.
Эрик, спасибо тебе за нашу свадьбу, которая надеюсь еще больше скрепит наш союз :)
Мы обязательно вернемся... у тебя лучший дом на острове!
It was great to have you here and to organise your wedding in Buddha style. What an amazing moment, it was magic.
Love you, ... and always welcome
Bamboo Eco Studio is situated in a residential area in Beau Vallon, on the mountainside (= very hilly). There's a bus stop nearby (the bus takes ca. 15 min to Victoria), a couple of small supermarkets and a bakery. Based on the description, we expected the beach to be closer ("10 minutes walk"). It's a very hilly 20-30 min walk alongside a busy road to get to Beau Vallon beach (which is very pretty). It's no big deal if you plan ahead, but it makes spontaneous trips there a lot less plausible.
The entire house is tucked away and surrounded by lots of vegetation. Once you're inside, you can't really tell you're inside a residential area, which is nice. The common area is great for relaxing during the day and reading a book in one of the hammocks.
However, make sure you don't visit during a full moon. We did just that and spent 3 mostly sleepless nights, despite using earplugs, thanks to ceaseless barking of both Eric's and the neighbors' dogs. Thanks to the studios' semi-open architecture, all noises (including those from upstairs) sound a lot more up front than they would inside a "regular" western building. Maybe we're just not used to louds environments, but we didn't enjoy this part at all. Having "a good night's sleep" (as advertised) was our prime objective when staying at Eric's and not getting this was a big bummer.
Overall, we found the studio and our stay there underwhelming. When we arrived, we found the gate wide open (and it stayed that way during our stay) and only Eric's 2 dogs were around. Initially, our toilet wasn't working and the bathroom was almost pitch black because the light switch was broken. When we finally met Eric later that night, we addressed this and he fixed the toilet for us. However, the light switched never got fixed, which was a big letdown. The shower was working (except for hot water), but looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a while and there was long trail of ants running alongside it for our entire stay. Parts of the bathroom looked like they were moldy, so all things considered, maybe not having any light was a good thing because I highly doubt anyone would want to pay for using this bathroom after having seen its condition.
We barely used the kitchen because, just like most of the studio, it had a general dirtiness about it and lots of basic utensils were missing. The fridge was dirty as well and the front door handle had been broken off. All things considered, I find it hard to believe that the studio gets cleaned very often (or thoroughly).
That one time we talked to Eric, he was very helpful and gave us a ton of tips for stuff to do around the island. However, many of the issues we had with our stay could be easily rectified - it just seemed to us that Eric didn't care enough.
The Bamboo Eco Studio is a very private, quiet, spacious self-catering option in Beau Vallon. It is about a 20-minute walk to the nearest beach along a fairly busy road, which wasn't our favorite part about staying there, but the beach itself was spectacular and well worth the trip. The hot water was reliable and the space was nicely cleaned before our arrival. We were responsible for cleaning and washing dishes during our 4-day stay there, which was fine. Eric is a very friendly, welcoming host who has good recommendations on what to see around the area.
Eric est un hôte super sympa, il est accueillant, serviable, franc et sociable. il a beaucoup d'humour. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la présence de Eric (qui habite juste à l'étage) pendant notre séjour à (website hidden) fut un très beau souvenir.
Le studio Zen est très original, sobre mais naturellement beau. Nous étions imprégnés de la beauté et des chants de la nature, qui constituèrent les plus chers trésors de notre séjour insolite.
Logement à recommander absoluement!
