Beautiful place to spend a holiday, wedding, romantic getaway etc Andy and Michelle were excellent host, everything they suggested from activities to dinning was exactly what we wanted to experience. Our holiday was a tropical paradise from the beautiful villa's to the swimming pool with a view to die for. We recommend this little bit of paradise to all.

We had such an amazing time and would definitely go back. Black Rock is paradise, and when you've finished exploring for the day it's the perfect place to go back to and be lazy, swim, eat and drink. In particular: - The location is amazing - it's on the opposite side of the island to the tourist complex (Muri Beach)... More

The villa was lovely- clean and tastefully decorated and had everything you might need if you're self catering. Having the swimming pool right outside was really nice, especially as there was no one staying in the other villa so we had the place to ourselves. The hosts couldn't be more helpful but not intrusive, though they live onsite.

The Villa we had was perfect for 2 couples. Pool to ourselves and a fantastic peaceful retreat. A short stroll down the drive across the road to a great beach. On what the locals call the sunny side. A fantastic restaurant attached for morning and afternoon tea plus lunch YUMMO. Just down the road are some great restaurants all within... More

We stayed for 5 nights in one of the two villas. Each bedroom had its own en-suite - with lovely shower. Beds were comfortable. Well appointed kitchen (cute pink pans!). Nice recliners outside the villas with shade if required. Pool was wonderful - we were there in the start of "winter" and it was still easily warm enough to swim.... More

We stayed in one the villas for five nights; probably the best accommodation I have ever enjoyed - well-appointed and spotlessly clean - and the hosts were just marvellous. This place has a gorgeous view and the infinity pool water felt like silk. But even if you don't stay here, you just have to try their restaurant. We spent a... More
