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!

Ideal for a couple wanting to explore the island. Yvette was very friendly and made us feel welcome. Would definitely recommend it.
