Simply the best!

  • 5 of 5

This property, is by far the best opportunity if you want to discover and enjoy a great vacation in Senegal. Tucked away from the busy tourist area, and yet within 5 minutes you will have access to the convenience stores or to the market. The villa is fully equipped with modern ammenities and each of the rooms has it's own separate bathroom and toilet. The pool area is great and is a good spot to enjoy the spectacular sundowner on the Atlantic ocean. From the house, you can enjoy a very nice walk on the beach to the villages of Toubab Dialaw or to Ndayane. Don't miss the makeshift fish market every day in Ndayane, where you can purchase fresh fish straight from the local fisherman's boat at a ridiculously low price! If you are more beach than pool, then you can walk straight from the pool area to the beach, using the stairway behid the pool. it's literally 30 meters! At night, let yourself fall asleep at the sound of the waves, relentlessly embrassing the shore. The personnal of the house is very professional and will cater to your every desire. Ali and Thierno live in the property 24h and ensure your security, even if we didn't feel the need for it. Khady is the maid, she will prepare local dishes and will take care of daily purchase, as well as cleaning and tidying up thr place every day!

Don't miss the opportunity to do some excursions in the area. My favourites: Safari at the Bandia natural reserve, just 15 km away from the property, the buzzling fish market in Mbour when the fishermen return from the sea when the sun sets. It's incredible! The village/island of Fadiouth, known as the Village des coquillages, it's amazing to see. And of course a must see in Gorée island in Dakar, one of the most moving places to see anywhere in Africa.

Last but not least, it is such a pleasure to deal with an uncomplicated house owner, Yves Demeure, who has made it very easy by providing all the right tips to ensure the experience is successful. We will be back in this place, but in the meantime we fully and kindly recommend this property to anybody who wishes to discover the beautiful country of Senegal and the Petite Côte.

Un séjour de rêve

  • 5 of 5

Nous recherchions le calme absolu et une maison sur la plage de laquelle nous pourrions nous endormir au bruit des nous avons trouvé l'endroit idéal! Nous y sommes allés en famille avec 2 enfants en bas âge. La maison est spacieuse. 3 grandes chambres - dont une avec une vue époustouflante!, et une grande terrasse au 1 er étage pour mieux voir les couchers de soleil. Le personnel de maison est vraiment gentil et ne cherche qu'à vous faire plaisir. J'ai vu des remarques sur l'emplacement de la maison et aimerais apporter des précisions. Certes vous êtes à quelques kilomètres de popenguine mais en taxi un aller retour coûte 7 euros. Par ailleurs la ville en elle même n'est pas d'un grand attrait. Le mieux est de partir de la maison pour des visites plus longues ou alors encore plus dépaysant de faire un tour au village d'à côté (20 mn à pieds ou sur une charette tirée par un petit cheval) et cela vous permettra de mieux vous connecter au Sénégal! Le seul bémol - mais qui n'a rien à voir avec la maison- est la propreté des plages. Malgré les efforts du personnel il n'est pas inhabituel de rencontrer quelques bidons vides ou chaussures usagées ramenés par la mer. Heureusement il y a la piscine pour vous baigner et vous pouvez tout à fait faire de grandes ballades sur la plage! Enfin côté sécurité vous n'avez rien à craindre. La maison est grillagée -attention les grilles sont en fer forgé il n'y a rien de déplaisant! Ce qui vous permet de dormir vraiment tranquilles et même de laisser jouer les enfants dans l'avant terrasse sans avoir peur d'un drame avec la piscine. De plus le gardien reste sur place toute la nuit si jamais vous aviez le moindre problème. De notre côté nous sommes revenus sous le charme!

Séjour parfait, rien à redire

  • 5 of 5

La villa est tout à fait conforme à la description (très bien située, au calme, avec belle piscine et accès direct à la plage) et le propriétaire et le personnel de maison sont très aimables et arrangeants.

Great house; location needs clarifying

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely house with a wonderful pool, right next to the sea. We spent a very relaxed weekend there.

However a word of warning about the location. I booked this house because on the map in the listing, it is shown as being in the town of Popenguine itself, and that is where we wanted to be. But it is a 15 minute drive from Popenguine town, beyond the neighbouring vilage of Ndayane.

Still, if that is not important to you, I would highly recommend booking this lovely house.
