I had some difficulty finding the guest house despite it only being a couple of miles south of the airport, but eventually discovered that I’d been right past it on the main road earlier. Hopefully most taxi drivers will have a better idea than the local people that I was asking for directions!
The rooms are laid out as independent bungalows and mine had an outdoor shower fenced in with bamboo which was fun.
The guest house provides basic but comfortable accommodation and the owner Bow was very accommodating, kindly providing transport on a motor scooter driven by a colleague, a bicycle for me to explore nearby and a lift back to the airport by car when I left. She also cooks some delicious meals in the kitchen right by the outdoor eating area. The pool looks like a nice spot for a beer but I didn’t have time to check that out.
If you are feeling the need for a bit of luxury, there is a helicopter pad set just back the other side of the road from the guest house, operated by Advance Aviation who offer sightseeing tours all around the island. Don’t worry, you won’t be troubled by noise at the guest house as they only have two choppers and they only fly when chartered.
So, fine for an economy base but you will need transport of some kind to get around. Would I stay there again? Yes.
