The pool was cleaned every other day and we also had cleaners who came in which was lovely. The only downside was that the house was too far from the centre and in the other side of the island- far from the best beach of gwada which was st Anne's. I took my two children who were scared to stay in the second room as it is not connected to the house, they ended up sleeping on the sofa bed in the living room which was ok. Overall, beautiful villa and very relaxing! Thank you Laurent!

Ingrid, the owner, replied promptly to all my emails and contacted me just before our holiday with all the finer details. She then rang us on arrival to check that everything was OK - that's what I call good customer service! The villa is beautiful, exactly like the pictures and the view from the balcony is breathtaking. We were a family of four and the accommodation was perfect. The pool is deep and was ideal for the family diving competition! The location of the villa is perfect for visiting the island's main attractions and particularly close to the best beaches. We also loved looking after the villa's cat Haitienne during our stay. Let's hope one day we can return!
