Lovely hotel. We were warmly welcomed. The room was a good size with a lovely verandah on which to relax. We asked so much from Sasha and he rose to the occasion every time. We required our lasagne to be heated, which was dealt with promplty and efficiently and delivered with plates, cutlery and serving spoons. The next morning, as we were participating in an event, we required breakfast at 4:45 am which was delivered with a smile. The rooms were comfortable and had everything you need. We will defintely be returning.

Had a lovely stay at Villa Exner! Sasha was a most gracious host. Beautiful, well appointed rooms that felt so welcoming. I highly recommend for a breakaway from the business of life - gorgeous, tranquil setting and really friendly and lovely hosts! All the small touches that just make it special, from the nightly firepit, to the well stocked honesty bar and the sparkling pool, you just feel like you are on holiday the moment you arrive

Villa Exner was such an unexpected find and I'm so glad we found it! The room (luxury garden room) was exquisite and gorgeous. The attention to detail made it feel like we were staying in someone's home as opposed to a generic hotel/guesthouse room. We especially loved the spacious and stunning bathroom with a deep bath that accommodates two adults easily. And the breakfast, which was served in our room, was memorable, especially the plunger coffee. I also swam in the warm salt-water pool when it was raining, which was glorious! Thank you for our stay.
