avatarWe enjoyed a week together with friends (family with two children plus grandmother) and had an amazing stay at this fairly remote and very special homestay. Living on poles in a mangrove fringed bay with baby-sharks swimming under your veranda is truly something! And if you´re an early bird you´ll enjoy the sunrise from the breakfast-veranda. From there we did excursions to places like Melissa´s Garden and other nearby snorkeling sites – superb.

Eli has great english and is also very dedicated to the preservation of the reefs and the marine life. Going there is also supporting the protection of the place. Since it´s quite isolated there are also problems with bomb fishing which we saw some tragic results of. This is not something that spoils the marvels of the place; only something that makes it all the more important to go there (tourism is also patrolling). Eli is also a great and generous person plus a great carpenter – the place has a nice and robust standard to it compared to other homestays.

There are kayaks to lend for free, the sunset is great and the milky way spectacular out there. Like other homestays; the food is good ( we thought it was best here) but with no or small variation. Before you go there: make sure you have a clear deal with Chris (the person we had contact with before coming there; no phone connection out there) about times for arrival/leaving and prices for excursions. Do go here; it´s definitely worth more than a day trip! And have some extra days for going/leaving since the transport is quite long and the sea might be a little rough off season. Enjoy your stay!
