Exodus Retreat offers the most magical of all views overlooking the sea and Jewel championship golf course.

You can walk through your own back gate and tee off onto the 17th fairway, or take a ten minute walk across the golf course to your own private residents beach.

Relax under the almond trees and enjoy the tranquility of a turquoise blue sea and white sands. Built in a horseshoe shape around a large oval shaped swimming pool with the living room and bedrooms opening out through large sliding doors onto a spacious veranda.

We have a housekeeper Regina who is actually on the property full time (in her own detached self contained accommodation) - Regina is wonderful she is always happy to help with a smile, and if guests want privacy she respects that too. She has been with us for many years and is one of the family!
Miss Monica is available to cook breakfast and diner, she is the best cook ever!! Everyone who visits want to take her home in their suitcases!! Steven looks after the gardens and the pool and is always happy to help too!! Andrew is our villa manager and he goes out of his way to help people when required from planning excursions to entertaining, he even has a catamaran for sailing kayak and snorkel and cooking crab on the beach!

We spent 10 days in paradise. Andrew, Monica, Stephen, and Regina were amazing hosts. My husband and I took my parents with us and it was our best vacation ever! Ms. Monica is the best cook. We definitely wanted to take her home! Stephen and Regina took such good care of us. They brought us fresh aloe for our sunburns...

Thank you for your kind words. We appreciate all feedback and welcome you back soon again to our beautiful Villa & staff. Blessings!
