It was a wonderful vacation on the cliff
We had a wonderful time at BouganBlu. It is a chamring home with vibrant colours inside and out and with modern amenities. The pictures do not lie. What you see is what you get... namely, breathtaking views and comfortable surroundings, that made our stay so relaxing. The pool was super clean and was cleaned several times during our stay. The bedrooms were large and and the beds and bedding comfy. The showers in the two master bedrooms were huge and great. The walk down to the sea was short and easy. Donna was fantastic. She took great care of us and her cooking was on point. We brought our own groceries and menus and she cooked up everything we asked well. She was super attentive to any special requests we had or special needs required. We always felt safe as there was 24hr security who would say hello but would avoid making their presence impact our vacation. All and all, we had a great time at this villa and we would stay again.

We would return!
My family really enjoyed our stay at this property. The house is airy and well-appointed. We lacked for nothing, and on the off chance that we needed anything, the staff members were more than accommodating. The ambience here was very nice, and we loved the views and scenery. We would absolutely consider returning.

Stop looking, you've found paradise!
We had the pleasure of staying here for 4 nights and it was better than we could have ever expected. If we could we would rate it even higher than 5/5. The view was breathtaking, the grounds were immaculate, every detail was thought through, and no comfort was spared. By day we were dazzled by the delicious food prepared by Donna, who was a delight. By night we were soothed by the ocean sounds, and comforted to know there was round the clock, yet discrete, security. We enjoyed wading in the secluded private beach and pool at all hours of the day, and getting up early to watch the sunrise. The villa itself is well designed with an open concept that any group, friends, family or couples, could enjoy. Overall, we had a fabulous time and we've already shared this with our friends and family so they can enjoy it as well. We can't wait to come back!
