Thank you for taking the time to review your experience as a guest here at Ocean Kave. You’re absolutely right that the weather can play a major role in a couples wedding day and from church to chapel, registrar office to Kave - if it rains it rains, and that can effect the big day and the couples opportunities for...

A 5* Rating on Trip Advisor really doesn't do Westward Living and Seahorse Apartments justice, because they are so much more. We were lucky enough to find a late holiday here in August/September at both the...
