Thank you so much Manfred for allowing us into your tropical hideaway. We had the best holiday of our lives in your home.
Manfred arranged for us to be collected from the airport by Icome his handy man, well worth the $US50. We were met by Stacy who showed us around and offered local information. The house is beautifully clean. The kitchen is well equipped, we cooked at home for most of our holiday bringing delicious fresh local fish home with us from the fish market at the bottom of the road. It was hard for us to tear ourselves away from the garden, plentiful seating areas always offered a sunny or shady spot. We stayed for 3 weeks and enjoyed being a part of the very friendly neighbourhood for a short time. local buses pass the bottom of the road every few minutes in both directions along the coast and we loved the lively energy and music aboard as we explored the island. The dawn chorus is a very noisy affair indeed. We were woken at about 5am every morning by the local cockerel, various fowl, local birds, monkeys on the roof, dogs barking at the monkeys on the roof and we loved it!!! Don't be irritated by being awoken but lie in your comfortable bed and embrace being in this vibrant place. We watched the hummingbirds feeding on a plant outside our bedroom window and usually after an hour all goes quiet and it is possible to drift back off to sleep.
We would definitely recommend this gorgeous house and we will certainly be returning. Manfred has a second house in the same street so a larger party could rent both houses and be almost next door to each other.
Be good to yourself and get this place booked now!
