The long journey is forgotten except you have entered into a new world, a new home for a holiday of a lifetime. On my first morning, and then there after, I woke early to sea the sunrise a few feet from my bedroom, slipping into the sea as a new day beckoned... just incredible. Every time I had a wish or a question it was answered in minutes, it actually felt as though I had a fairy godmother. The house is personal, comfortable, commodious and just what I was hoping for and more. The people on this colourful idyl are as warm as the sea, it is truly amazing to come this far and feel so much at home, so part of this magical place. The day we went for a recommended boat trip out to visit other islands was our favourite. When we sleepily returned, not only was the house incredibly clean and tidy (as parents you appreciate what I'm feeling...) but most wonderful of all, Juliana had left us a delicious (i use the word advisedly as a cookery teacher myself) meal - with rice gently warming... again, you can imagine the shear delight of returning home to this welcome, the warm kindness in this moment, expresses my feelings about the place: thoroughly thoughtful, delicious in every way. I really cannot say enough how special we found this holiday. quiet, most lovely beaches, jungle to explore, friendly people to connect with - we are home but will keep this place in our hearts always, with our love staying on the island. Thank you so much. Magical.

Her help was invaluable. The villa was in a great location only 10 minutes from the beach. Big enough for our family of 4 the villa had all the things we needed. I recommend staying at The Delpeche Residence for a fantastic holiday.
