Great base for exploring Basse Terre or visiting Les Saintes, with transfer from the airport and ferry available. Warm reception from the very kind and helpful hosts to their home, Villa Man Cina, with impeccably prepared, delicious meals and opportunity for ample conversation (multilingual) around the family table with the hosts and other guests in the open air dining area, breakfast with produce from the garden! The five rooms on the upper level are not large but open to the typical West Indian wrap around gallery, with outdoor seating area. There is also a well equipped and comfortable guest salon with small kitchen, for independence if desired. Beautiful landscape plantings, garden, and fruit trees, and a pool to cool off. We found the sounds from the neighborhood pleasant (sure occasional traffic noise) but chickens, doves, children playing, and frogs in the evening delightful!
