House is designed as a vacation house and is beautifully thought through with all basics guests might need. Owner is available on emails very quickly and is really making staying relaxing, non intrusive and full of advice. We were 3 adults and 2 small kids and loved our stay! Looking forward to coming back!

It's far enough away for peace and quiet , but it close enough to find places to eat, drink and shop It is only a short drive to the popular beach Grande Anse . and The Jardin Botanique (Botanical Gardens). an array of colours with birds, flowers, and fish. All and all a nice location and place to stay

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!
