  • “Crisply decorated rooms. Loved the unique touches like the sliding barn door to the bathroom, color palette, and light fixture. It was always spotlessly clean. Nice outdoor seating and planter of succulents and stones outside each room. The thatched roofs on the buildings are a really cute touch.”

The fact that we had an aircon and a coffee station as well as bar fridge was just a pleasant surprise! Well done to the Team at Explorers for looking after us.”
