Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Amazing Stay
We've been there in December 2014 with a group of 9 people (30-35 year old). We had a amzing stay, the house is great, the beach just few meters from the house. Great snorkeling. The place also got a ping pong table and a pool table. The host was great too, very helpful when we needed something. We will come back there for sure !!

This house is situated right on the beach and well equipped for self catering and Mark is very helpful. It is great for a large group and very relaxed. The Shipwreck Bar is 2 mins walk on the beach.

Best accomodation we could've hoped for!
Nine of us (6 adults, two children and a toddler) recently stayed at Anchors rest and had our wedding ceremony on the beach there. We had a fantastic stay with good safe snorkelling and swimming. Kayaks and snorkelling gear were available. The property was excellent for entertaining and we thrashed the barbeque! Sunsets were awesome! As a wedding ceremony the venue was perfect. we had 65 seated guests on the beach, a string band and this property accomodated us all well. The trees provided much needed shade and were especially de-nutted for our day. The home itself was well stocked with everything we needed. Mareko (Mark) was a fantastic host and nothing was a bother for him at all. He also gave us good tips and offered to help with wedding plans before we got there recommending different people or services that we needed. I highly recommend this to all and we will definitely be back.

Perfect family getaway
The location of the house is perfect with a fantastic and safe beach right on the door step. Plenty of space for 8 adults to relax and not feel like they are on top of each other. Close to amenities and easy access to everything you need. Mark was fantastic, friendly and helpful without being imposing at all. Gave us loads of hints and advice for activities on the island. The house is well-equipped with everything you will need for a perfect holiday. Kayaks and snorkelling gear were great for the lagoon and the house had plenty of games and books. We had the best holiday and anchors Rest was perfect.
