Beach life at Liitle Reef!

5 of 5
We had a wonderful holiday at Sally's homely apartment. We had everything we needed for a relaxing stay and any queries were dealt with by Shirley, the housekeeper, immediately. We were welcomed by Grantley who lives next door and given all the information we needed about the 'working' of the apartment. The parcel of food & drink essentials left for us in the fridge was very welcome after our delayed flight! The position of Little Reef could not be bettered - just as nice as Sandy Lane but without the crowds. It was great to wake up and have breakfast on the terrace and go for a swim and maybe a bit of sunbathing without having to wait for anyone else to get up!! We had a really outstanding meal at The Tides restaurant in Holetown - highly recommended for a special occasion. The owner Sally was available by email before & during our holiday and responded promptly to all of our queries so that we were totally confident of our decision to stay at Little Reef. I understand that the apartment is undergoing some renovation work during September and we would love to visit again in the future to see how perfection has been improved!

Beautiful Villa in ideal location near Beach!

5 of 5
This July, I enjoyed a wonderful 2 week stay at Palm Tree Villa, accompanied by my parents and sister. The place is absolutely beautiful. The front porch is fitting for evening drinks, and we sat out for breakfast each morning. The pool is perfect for cooling off after a hot walk back from the mains street and there’s plenty of garden space. I loved the feel of the interior; the styling meant to place felt airy and cool, despite the heat outside! The villa housed everything you could possibly need during your stay (and more!). We felt completely at home at Palm Tree Villa and I could’ve easily stayed a few more weeks! The villa’s location was near enough ideal. A five minute walk and you’re at the Beach Club, which you have entry to during you stay. There’s a couple of small beaches along the front of the club, and you can walk all the way along the coast of Hole town, to try other beaches. Next to the Beach Club is Drift, amazing cocktails, and we had a delightful dinner at Tides, alongside Drift. All amenities are located nearby, as well as a multitude of restaurants. Overall, our stay at the villa was outstanding and I would definitely like to return
