Hi, Can we pay for the room with a VISA card?
Yes you can pay by VISA and they add 2%. There is no ATM in town so if you wish to have some cash tell the taxidriver to stop at an ATM in Stonetown or if you bring GBP, EUR or USD you can change money at many places around the hotel.

Hi, Is the beach here hit by the low tides? Thanks
Not really , it does come and go thats clear but being on the northern tip of the island it is way way less affected by the tides. This is why we also choose the hotel. Book in this part of the island you will not be disappointed and you will have great swimming water 24/7.....enjoy!

"There are only 2 cottages and they are identical. The location is great and the views spectacular. Also very quiet."
"Sea View is a must and off ground floor gives better privacy to your balcony."
"The third floor gives you a great view but there is no lift so if stairs are an issue request a lower level "
"We stayed in room 36, which is a suite, and could only be described as absolutely magnificent!"
"Rooms facing the pool/beach will have afternoon sun."
US$197 - US$281 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
