OK But...

  • 2 of 5

This villa is a little bit dated and could do with a lick of paint some general TLC. The air conditioning system is broken and while we had only a few hot days when staying it was VERY uncomfortable during the night. None of the en-suite toilets have doors on them (I don't know if this is a South African thing or not). The walk down to the beach is quite short though steep which could be a problem for elderly people. There is a tidal pool nearby which was very nice to swim in. In the book provided in the villa were directions to a local coffee shop - unfortunately this looks as if it had been knocked down a couple of years earlier. Recommend Fiamma Grill nearby for excellent food.

Owner's Response: Yes there are some minor decorative touch ups needed but we do manage the property extremely well and you will find the property very clean and well equipped and the location is, of course, fantastic. No air conditioning is correct. We have ceiling fans which are very effective and have recently put in additional wall fans.
