We're a family of four and we had styed at Joanna's awesome place for 6 nights. The place is nicely setup and the cutlery etc is quite good. the beds were also comfortable. Hot & cold water was easy, and the AC works fine. The beach is a mile away so we would often walk one way, and then cab it back. The cab stand is opposite the Club Mahindra on Varca beach.
There is a little roughness at the edges - the freezer door is broke, and the fridge itself cools rather than chills. Ants are a problem if you leave any food around. But in the larger scheme of things it these were small. The best part was the pool which the kids loved and spent hours in everyday. Overall we had a great time,, and the place had become home by the time we left. We hope to come back soon.
The other reviews and owner's description are all accurate and give a good indication of what to expect so I'll try and avoid duplicating them. We had a fantastic time staying at the apartment and using it as a base for the nearby beaches. The first day we caught a taxi back (200r) but after that walked everywhere. The beach shack near the Zuri Hotel was our favourite, really excellent food, everything from breakfast pancakes to fresh seafood main courses. There's also a restaurant (Pereira) by the entrance to the Zuri that's certainly worth a visit.
For us it was perfect, we'll certainly return to Varca and hopefully stay again at the apartment.
Great location and a wonderful place to stay. Homely, affordable, well maintained and friendly staff.
