Very relaxed stay
We spent 5 days there for Christmas as a family and had a very relaxed time.
We definitely miss the lovely crepes chef Abedi prepared for us every morning. We would buy veggies and fresh fish and sea food from the supplier coming to our doorstep and the cook would prepare everything for us with talent.
Alex came to make sure everything was fine, Haji organised everything we needed and Mohammed drove us anywhere we liked and waiting for us. All the staff was extremely friendly, helpful and professional.
The house is extremely spacious and pretty, we could have probably fitted 5 times more people.
The only negative points is that (1) the Jacuzzi never worked; (2) the tides make it pretty much impossible from 10 am to 6 pm. It is not the prettiest beach on the island for sure but at least it is very peaceful and quiet unlike more touristic areas; and (3) it is also a shame that the manager double-booked the place and we had to spend the 2 last days of the trip elsewhere, we would have loved staying longer.
Thank you for the review, it was great to host you. We have since set the spa pool and jets to a timer and its working great. Tides are always changing, you just need to plan around the times, maybe use that time for a walk to the reef, take some awesome photographs of the bountiful marine life, fortunately you can cool off in refresher pool.
This is all about the beach - kite, surf, fish, snorkel, scuba, sail.
Rent a bicycle and cycle out for a day of swimming, pizza, cocktails.
Safe to swim, for all ages.
Visit the local Forest, see Colobus monkeys, Turtles, butterflies. The Seaweed centre is also an amazing educational. Speak to us about walking through the village, have tea with locals, get a Henna decoration. Visit the local school. We are happy to recommend what to bring and work with "Pack for a purpose" NGO

Why Anne Uys chose Paje
Location location location, Excellent beachfront location and even better - no big hotels or mass tourism or resorts around. Life as it was... fishing boats, children playing and incredible sunsets. Yoga on the beach is the best way to start your day here!
What makes this Villa unique
Highly experienced team to take care of everything you need to be comfortable whilst on holiday in Africa! The terrace is my favorite place for early morning coffee and afternoon G&T's. The spa pool is awesome after a day in the sun! The bedrooms are spacious, cool underfoot and generously equipped. The interleading rooms make for excellent family stays.
