“Beautiful place, totally relaxing, Lara's Dream is just like the photographs!”
Reviewed 5 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The Island is beautiful, Lara's Dream is very comfortable, and Leonora, the property manager, could not have been more helpful. After a day on the beach, sitting on the deck with a cold drink watching the sun set is the perfect end to the day. There are a number of restaurants within a short walking distance, and although taxis are inexpensive and the local bus service is perfectly safe, I regret not hiring a car to explore more.

What did I like least? The humidity, but it's a small disadvantage compared to all the positives.

An unforgettable experience, one I can thoroughly recommend.

We're so pleased you had a good time and liked the house and location as much as we do. Thanks for the tip to include the phone number for pizza delivery in the 'cheat sheet'. They weren't open (under new ownership) when I was there last, but that'll be another convenient option for guests, so will certainly do that when I can. Looking forward to you returning for another visit. Best regards, Laraine

We spent a fabulous 8 days at Lara's Dream and hope to spend two weeks next year.
The cottage is located in an ideal location on Sandy Bay. Wonderful snorkeling right in front of the cottage. The water is clear and shallow for the more inexperienced snorkeler.
Even got to see a sea cucumber there.
The neighborhood is made up of interesting and helpful natives who are eager and willing to offer directions when needed. Taxi's and transport buses run past the location regularly.
A neighbor took me to meet the areas retired mid-wife who at 81 yrs. old continues to bake the best coconut bread (and other goodies) in a "mud oven",........one of the highlights of the trip.
Enough can't be said about the wonderful relaxing time we spent at Lara's Dream.

How easy was it to book the property?

This is a very nice place to stay. Secluded, yet close to restaurants and diving. Occasionally, the power or water supply goes out. Typical for the island. Be prepared. Keep cold water in the refrigerator and candles handy. It usually doesn't last long and adds to the adventure.
We have gotten tired of cruise ships all inclusive resorts. Limited and costly excursions. Being herded around like cattle. By the end of the week you are tired of the same food and don't want to step on the scale.
We had a wonderful time at Lara's Dream and are thinking about going back.

“Happy memories...”
Reviewed 9 March 2014 for a stay in November 2013

We stayed for a week in early November 2013. The driver that was sent to meet us was waiting at the airport with a sign, and stopped at the supermarket so that we could buy some basic provisions for our stay. Since the cottage is fully equipped we made some meals indoors, helped by the local trucks delivering fresh fish and vegetables to the area every day. They just toot to let you know they are outside! There are also two resorts within a five minute beach walk which we visited for lunch and dinner. Their food was good and reasonably priced, albeit not as reasonable as the many restaurant choices in nearby "West End" (less than USD 2 cab ride away, cabs easily available from the nearby main road). The weather was perfect - warm, low humidity, with breeze. Ideal for relaxing in the hammock on the deck and watching the fishing and dive boats at the nearby reef. We also spent our days kayaking and snorkelling. I would recommend taking some type of water shoe for use in the shallow water, due to coral underfoot. The local property manager, Leonora, was available for all our needs, yet wasn't at all intrusive. She lives, conveniently, next door! We didn't need the bedroom AC, we slept very comfortably with all the windows open and ceiling fan on. The owner sent us lots of useful information and tips, but we also enjoyed finding our way by seeking advice from the friendly locals, many of whom spoke English. We returned back to our busy lives well rested and rejuvenated. If you prefer a 5* "all inclusive" type experience, this may not be for you. If, like us, you enjoy the idea of living within the local community, and staying in beach front accommodation with wonderful views, we would definitely recommend this place. We hope to return.
