HOLIDAY HOME IN THE MALDIVES

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Maldives - Ocean Sound

Three bedroom holiday home with boat

If you would like to enjoy the real Maldives Ocean Sound is the place to stay.

Unlike resort islands we are providing our guests with a 23 feet speed boat for your enjoyment.

At resort islands you can only snorkel on the house reef. At Ocean Sounds you can take the boat to many wonderful snorkelling spots throughout the Male' Atoll. You can take the boat and go big game fishing, night fishing, visit uninhabited islands, sand banks and go dolphin watching.

Ocean Sounds has all the modern conveniences like air conditioning, hot and cold water, microwave, freezer, washing machine, satellite television, telephone, computer and wifi internet throughout the home.

PLEASE NOTE: You have to pay only after checking in. I will not ask for any deposit for the booking. One month before your date of travel you will have to send me details of your confirmed tickets. If any person request for a deposit then please do not communicate with the person as it is not me. Thank you

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome

THE BEST WAY TO ENJOY THE MALDIVES!

  • 5 out of 5
The villa is located on Hulhamale - a man made, yet surprisingly green island with palm tree lined white sandy beaches! There are a few hotels on this island, but mostly it's a quiet yet growing residential island for Maldivians. What's really convenient is that it's joined, by a thin causeway, to Male Airport island. That said, it's not on the flight path and there was no noise disturbance at all! Having considered all options prior to booking, we quickly found that seaplane or speedboat transfers to resorts are incredibly expensive, so this is a massive plus for Hulhamale!

The 2 storey villa offers good, clean, basic self catering accommodation - 3 bedrooms (with bedding, towels, hair dryers, iron etc), 2 bathrooms (with power showers), kitchen (with oven, microwave, toaster, fridge, washing machine etc), living area (with various wicker seats, dinner table & chairs, tv, DVD, computer & desk, wifi access etc) and balcony with a sea view (outdoor seating, table, umbrella)! It's a perfect base to explore the Maldives and, even though the accommodation is perfectly fine, we were out every day and every evening anyway.

But the best thing about our holiday were the 2x amazing guides - Mohamed and Rifa. We were met at airport arrivals, transferred from the airport to the villa, driven to a supermarket, given a local mobile phone (to communicate with them) and given all sorts of useful advise (day trips, best restaurants etc). But equally we didn't feel smothered or fussed over; instead they were there when we needed them!

More exciting than that, the villa included use of a large 6-8 person speedboat. 3 trips were included free of charge - 1 day at a nearby resort island (to use the facilities) and 2 days visiting so-called 'picnic islands' and white sand banks (including snorkelling to see beautiful tropical coral, a ride on an inflatable doughnut and more)! We had the option to pay for additional fuel to see other Maldivian islands & deserted sand banks and did so without hesitation - it was worth every penny!

What a way to see the Maldives and much more fun than being locked to one resort on one island! Thank you Mohamed and Rifa - we had a holiday of a lifetime and look forward to returning again next year!

RECIPE FOR A GREAT VACATION

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from spending 6 days at Ocean Sounds. We had a wonderful vacation. We can heartily support all of the comments made on this site. No point in repeating the details already mentioned by others.
Mohamed and Rifau attended to all of our needs, and we could not have asked for nicer people to deal with. The house is well equipped and supplied us with everything we needed. The portable picnic cooler that is in the house, is of very good quality and served us well when we went out in the boat. The boat and its wonderful skippers gave us such flexibility, much better than being in a resort. We read the comments in the guest book and then thought advice from Mohamed as we planned out precious few days.
The guest book gave very good information where to go, eat, shop, etc. In the end, we added our experiences to it. For example, on the last day, Mohamed and Rifau took us way, way out to a different atoll with the most amazing corals. It was worth every penny of the extra gas. This atoll does not have a name, so you will find it in the guest book under “Patterson’s Atoll”. Do make the extra trip.
The local dive shop “Into Scuba” offers excellent beginner dive sessions. Well worth the price.
Please take and under-water camera. You will regret if you do not have one.
We hope to be back sometime soon for a second visit at “Ocean sound”.

Doha, Qatar.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  • 5 out of 5
Just arrived back from our 2 weeks vacation we spent in the Ocean Sounds and I have to say this vacation was really perfect, exceed our expectation.
The house is fully equipped with all things you need to have, the location is very good just on the beachfront.
Imagine, as you are sitting on the terrace having your morning coffee, and have all the beauty of the blue ocean, just behind the palm trees, and you listen only the sound of the ocean.
We had great dives with Dive Club Maldives, as they are only 1 minute walk from the house.
We saw reef sharks, stingrays, turtles, and even Giant Manta Rays!
Our friends went for fishing trips with Mohamed by the boat and we had great dinner from the grouper and snapper they caught.
There are good local restaurants in Hulhumale, or you can go by ferry, fast and cheap, to Male where you can walk, visit local markets, fish market and have great dinners, too.
We had nice trips to Picnic Island, snorkelling with lots of reef fish, even sometimes with reef sharks, was also a great and unforgottable experience.
Hulhumale is rapidly growing, many construction works are around, we have to be patient and think how great place will be when all these buildings are ready.
The beach in front of the house, as local beaches in Hulhumale are mainly for local peoples, please respect local regulations and dress codes on the beach, as bikinis and underwears are not allowed here.
You can have western type sunbathing in bikinis on Picnic Island, or any of the resort islands nearby, or on the sandbank close to Hulhumale.
Mohamed was great guide, helping us, supporting us in any problems, and give us so many smile and hospitality.
THANK YOU Mohamed !
Thank you so much also to Idham for giving us the opportunity to stay here.
Missing everything what we had got from Maldives.

PERFECT PLACE TO STAY WITHOUT TOURIST. LOOK DEEPER

  • 5 out of 5
We've just had the most amazing time on the island of the Maldives in Idam's house.
Yes it is the only rented house anywhere on all the islands that make up the Maldives.
No it's not like our own homes, but search your soul a little deeper and it's perfect for a place to stay while your away from wherever you live.

No amount of pictures, holiday programs or anything can truly capture what you get to experience in the Maldives itself.
The places, faces, people and everything around you is just breathtaking beyond your wildest imagination for sure.

The water is like looking at glass, beautiful colors and the sights are out of this world.
We stayed for 2 weeks and saw dolphins, stingrays, turtles, flying fish, fruit bats, cranes, and god only knows what else.

On our fishing trip my 12 year old daughter caught a 2foot Barracuda and I caught a 2 foot Skip Jack Tuna, we invited Mohamed and his wife over for a bbq and had an amazing evening.

Mohamed is a wonderful young lad, who makes your stay so worth it, and he'll do whatever it is to make it the most memorable time of your lives.

If you ever stumble across this site and are thinking about staying, PLEASE do not even hesitate for a single second, DO IT, take the plunge and go for it. It's more than worth it!

Have a lovely holiday and take some of the local 'well being' it brings you back to where your from and never forget just how beautiful the sights, the sounds, the people and the Maldives really is.

Will be back and hopefully never leave paradise ever again.

Thank you so much to Idam for renting in the first place,
A huge THANK YOU SO MUCH to Mohamed for just being who you are and making us feel so welcome.

Missing everything that makes up the Maldives full stop.
Thank you for EVERYTHING.
A couple and their 12 year old daughter from Crowthorne in Berkshire.
We stayed from August 23rd to September 4th 2010.

PARADISE

  • 5 out of 5
We rented the villa for two weeks in February and we had the perfect holiday. The house is roomy and has all the comforts you need. This is to my knowledge the only rental house on the island which means you are one of very few tourists which gives you a great opportunity to experience the real Maldives. The house is on the Island Hulhumale which is next to the capital Male.
The house is right on the local beach. However, it is important to keep in mind that respectfull clothing is required. Western style sunbathing is possible on the neighbouring island, Kuda Bados.
The real Maldives is quite a distance from the plush resorts but far more interesting and just as beautifull. Having stayed both at a resort and in the villa, we by far prefer the latter.
The house came with two boats, one dingy and a great guide; Mohammed. We had a wonderfull time on the island and highly recommend the villa and seeing the real Maldives.
