Haven Hall is the first luxurious self-catering accommodation we have stayed in on the Island in the true sense of the word! The atttention to detail is outstanding, television in the bedroom, air-conditioning, impeccably clean in a beautiful garden setting with heated swimming pool & tennis court. We chose the Garden apartment as it was perfect for our needs but we did manage to see the other apartments which had the most stunning sea views. The owners (David & Arielle) are really sweet & have clearly gone to great lengths to ensure that luxury is not just a "tag on" word, their luxury is real and you get more than what is advertised. We loved every minute of our stay and will most certainly be back! We love trying new places - we were apparently one of the first here as they have only recently opened, if you are looking for true luxury and value, then we most certainly recommend this as the best on the Island.
