We spent most of our time outside in the beautiful garden and private pool. The house is about 5mins walk from the very quiet and beautiful Gibbs beach and about 10mins walk from Mullins beach. Monkeys visited the garden a couple of times when we were there which delighted everyone. The service from booking the villa through Maria, to the wonderful staff was first class throughout. Highly recommended. We hope to stay again in future.

I have stayed in various locations, at Hotels, Apartments and Cottages. I never seemed to get both just right at the same time, until now. For the past 7 days I have stayed at Little Reef. A fantastic apartment in the most idyllic location. It was my home for a week, and I loved every minute of it. Only wish I could have stayed longer. The apartment had everything I needed, and more. Travelling alone, I could sit on the balcony in the evening, feeling extremely safe. Then I was able to move into a lovely cosy sitting room with comfy chairs, I often fell asleep in. The view from the balcony. There are no words to do it justice. Absolutely brilliant and amazing. Grantley and Shirley looked after me extremely well. As well as Sally, from the moment I booked the apartment. Everything in a personal manner, which I appreciated very much. I very much hope, I can come back to Little Reef in the foreseeable future.
