Beautiful location, secluded, peaceful and relaxing. We stayed in the Kune Kune apartment which had an added bonus of a balcony which overlooked the animal sanctuary. The apartment is very well equipped, clean and comfortable and I would definitely recommend to family and friends.

From arrival to departure the holiday was idyllic. We had grand plans for places that we wished to visit and we did none, simply because we didn't want to leave the site! The hosts are fantastic, friendly yet not invasive. The accommodation provided everything we required, the kitchen was well equipped, the bed/bedding was sumptuous and the living Read moreroom well furnished and cozy. We will definitely return and will recommend to our friends and family without hesitation. Hide
