"A really memorable stay. Tidesong is in an idyllic and peaceful situation and the accommodation is secluded and comfortable. The house is surrounded by a large interesting garden, of which the owners are justly proud, steeply falling to the mangroves at the water's edge. The breakfasts and dinner were perfect - no 5 star hotel could touch them - with fruit straight from the orchard and a pleasure to eat! The joy of listening to the distant pounding of the ocean on waking and spotting a kingfisher in the lovely garden cannot be replicated! Ros and Hugh were very kind hosts, sensitive to our needs and they provided much useful information to help us explore the area. We enjoyed every minute of our stay."

"Ros and Hugh Cole-Baker made us feel so welcome and "destressed" us after a grueling trip stopover on the way home from a funeral. Accommodation, meals and surroundings were first class. They were very caring and genuine people."
