We loved our stay here. This was our first stop on our 3.5 week of travel in Madagascar. The bar was set pretty high! We swam with whale sharks on our first day, the colour of the water cannot be put in words. The ocean here is by far the most beautiful we have ever seen. We were the first guest to stay at this private home so they do need to work out a few things, but besides that it s a fantastic place. Just some info you should know. The captain and boat is only accessible in the am. Because of the winds in the afternoon they will not take you anywhere and will want you back by 1:30 latest. Make sure to have a meal plan before you arrive so you can stop at the store and stock up on arrival (once you get to the house you cannot leave until the next morning). WE just finsihed traveling for 30 hours so we walked around the grocery store in a daze and were not sure what to buy. The driver did suggest we only needed to buy a few things and we could come back the next day, but honestly I wouldn’t want to waste my time going back and forth to Nosy Be, so stock up on arrival. The chef is fantastic, he will make you anything you ask for as long as he has the ingredients.
This place is paradise.
First guest !!! So happy you loved it !! Thank you for your review and trust.
Just a word about the “back to home” by boat : as it’s the beginning of raining season, the wind could be quite high on the sea after 2pm but in regular season, we may easily come back around 4pm.
For the errands, we now offer the service to make your “firsts days food basket” - it will be up to you :))
We keep putting all our efforts for every stay in this island becomes a fantastic, uncommon and unforgettable experience :)
Top Hideaway at Nosy Komba
The three houses are located above a small privat sand beach and have enough space to accomodate six adult easily. The rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated with absolute amazing views. The facilities are all working well. In the top house is the kitchen and a sleeping place for the manager/chef.
Our Manager/Chef was the nice Valerie and she did a brillant job: Food was delicious, everything was always tidy and spotless. And she helped to organise trips to the lemurs on Nosy Komba or to the powdersand Island of Nosy Iranja.
100% Recommandation! We will come back for sure!
We are very happy you had a great week in our incredible paradise !!
We do our best for the service too as we know it’s so important in a remote island. So glad you enjoyed !
You have services included with the house and additional luxury hotels for exceptional lunches or drinks around.
