This is a place where the owners have been on enough holidays to know exactly how to setup a place to amplify and not diminish your Cocos experience. You come to this island because it forces you to chillax and detox from the daily grind of life in the 21st century. This house understands why you are here. Its places itself in the centre of your holiday not because its a brash attention seeking Elvis impersonator. It's an
un-panicked, understated, class act. For those from the 80's think of the Sade
(shah-day) song "smooth operator"
Want the beach? walk across the back lawn, want a place to cook the early morning catch? Try the alfresco kitchen, Want to walk to the pub? 200m to the right of your front door. Forgot your USB charger? the house has got one. Need a fishing rod? the house has got them. Surf Ski? yep, Paddle board? yep, Push bikes? yep, Full set of kitchen knives? yep, Good mattresses? yep, Clean sheets? yep, Comfy outdoor furniture? yep. Music sound system with blue tooth compatibility? yep. Outdoor speakers? yep. Outdoor shower? yep. Outdoor fridge? yep. Cutting boards, baking tins, re-sealable plastic containers? yep. Enough cuterly for all the house to eat at the same time without needing plastic forks? yep, Clean towels large enough to wrap around the girth of a substansial man? yep.....and the list goes on and on. The best part is; it all works. It's not worn out, old, or lost. Oh I almost forgot; want the most amazing stars in the world? yep just look up on a cloudless night.
Kylie is the fantastic manager who met us at the ferry and had the house perfectly prepared for our stay. Make sure you book her motorised canoe tour, it's a must do on the island and works for everyone from the very young to those of a more senior vintage (including mother in laws) We were a family group of 7, which included;
pre-teens, teens, twenty somethings, 50 somethings and 70 somethings. We stayed for 4 nights and wished we had booked longer....(it's always the indicator for great accomodation)
The only reason that explains why this place hasn't been reviewed before is; those in the know didn't want to share. Sorry guys, the best accomodation on Cocos West is no longer a secret.
