The oceanfront location is spectacular, the only sounds are the ocean and the occasional rooster. It is safe and quiet, nice to sit oceanfront, there is limited beach entry. It is close to Muri village, island bus transportation is available, however a car would also be good.The room could use shelves or drawers for storage, we had to use the extra bed and living room chair to store our clothing. The AC stopped working and ventilation was difficult, the lanai door was open but there isn't much opportunity to open other windows for free air flow. Owners are on the property and are friendly and helpful. However, somewhat cavalier in charging your credit card early.

We had a wonderful 11 night stay. The view from the villas was wonderful and sitting on the front deck one morning we had the wonderful experience of seeing whales right out from our accommodation. We were told about all the local events and places of interest by our hosts even down to the local bakery that makes the best croissants. With happy hour once or twice a week it gave us a good chance to meet other visitors staying at this small 8 villa accommodation. We stayed in two different ocean view villas during our stay, 5 & 6 nights and both had their really good points. We would recommend this accommodation, only one thing against it is that you can’t swim right outside your villa but you are only a short distance from the beautiful lagoon. You WILL ENJOY this accommodation.

Was right on the beach, you can see the sun rise every morning. The best part was how lovely the hosts were. They really made us feel welcome and did everything they could to make us comfortable. Such a wonderful couple.
