I hesitate to write this review for selfish reasons. Why? Because this holiday is so wonderful I'd rather keep it a secret!

Hats off to Fiona and Gareth, they really got the formula of a home from home with the conveniences of a hotel spot on!

They gave us a list of great places to visit, they had horse riding just down the road where my daughter would spend the day there if she could! It is definitely a place we will go to again.

Awesome, it has raised the bar for next year! (more)Tony Johnson

Most memorable were the rural location with an opportunity to see the landscape and vegetation. The space, both our private area around our yurt and outside where the kids were free to play on the trampoline and meet the chickens and donkey. The smallness of the resort and the uncrowded beach. The morning bike ride into the village for bread. (more)Roos Eisma

100%. Exactly what we as a family of three generations, age range from almost 3 to 71, were looking for. The freedom to wander their land, pick oranges, lemons and apricots.

The two most exciting aspects of my holiday were; viewing a large male tiger for over half an hour in the wilderness, and the tremendously lucky spotting of a pack of wild dogs.
