The villa itself is absolutely wonderful, it definitely has the wow factor and as long as you've got a good book there's very little point in leaving. We had children with us however so when we did want to go out and about, Pat the manager was extremely helpful in making arrangements for us. The chef Lucky is a superstar, we couldn't believe just how spoiled we were at mealtimes. We did have to ask to be kept informed on costings for food etc but once that was ironed out, not a problem at all and it was very reasonable. There are several villas on the hillside and it's luck of the draw who your neighbours are (for them and us!) But unfortunately we're a bit old for the 5am revellers with loud music. The mornings can be a bit noisy as people begin about their day very early on the roads around the villa grounds so there was traffic noise and a bit of shouting going on, so I didn't get the sleep-ins I was hoping for. The villa is not as remote as I was hoping for.

We had a wonderful time at the villa - we were especially impressed with the expansiveness of the villa which is beautifully furnished. We were also very lucky to have Pat and her team who took care of all our needs, they were super friendly, reliable and did a great job! We loved it so much we plan to go back again very soon.

This was a perfect getaway for my wife and I. The Villa gave us privacy while offering a spectacular ocean view with an infinity pool. The housekeeper was lovely and exceptionally nice and provided everything we needed. The villa was so wonderful in fact that we barely wanted to leave it. I wish we could have stayed longer. I particularly loved the outdoor jacuzzi in the master bathroom, an awesome way to end the day.

Throughout the villa are intricate wall hangings, embroidered fabrics, African masks and other works of art sourced from around the world. Floor mosaics and eye-catching design details combined with an extensive use of wood, marble, stone and other natural materials give the villa a distinctive flair.
