Stayed July 2011
If you want an all inclusive, white bread, sterile, wait staff, replica of every other hotel in the world, DO NOT COME HERE! If you want to spend time with your family swimming, playing cards, taking naps in hammocks and buying fresh fruit from the local fruit lady, then THIS is where you need to come. My family; 2 teenagers, my husband and our uncle, just returned from 10 days at Nirvana. We actually had only booked 6 days but opted for four more. The beach is gorgeous, the staff treats you like family and when I return, we will stay HERE. We had other options, but it really was the staff that kept us there. The cottages are the way beach cottages should be. COTTAGES. NO TV (WHY in the world would you want or need a TV on vacation???), ceiling fans, kitchens to make home made meals, and yes wifi if you need it. We loved it. No A/C and all. If we needed our stinky towels to be washed, we would simply ask and the next day it was done. The sweet women even cooked for us after we went to the grocery and it was better than any restaurant meal. It truly is NIRVANA.
After searching private rentals for over a month we decided on NIRVANA. I emailed for info got an immediate response with phone #'s and it was smooth sailing from that point on. NIRVANA lives up to it's name! PRISTINE & IMMACULATE kept grounds & cottages/villas. Owners built this place from ground up with their family over the years. Nirvana staff has remained solid for years which says a lot. Staff welcomed us by name and was at our beck & call until they were sure we were settled. Cute, quaint, clean, "less is more" style. Smack in the middle of 7 Mile Beach. Housekeeping staff TRUSTWORTHY & efficient. Security front & back of property 24 hrs. AMAZING!! Staff is extremely knowledgeable & exceptionally helpful and friendly. People stop along the beach and comment...."wow, we wish we were staying here" ! Peaceful, Zen garden like setting; older cottages no air....newer Villas have air. Owners are "hands-on" and will answer any questions prior to renting. You can grocery shop for the basics/snacks/drinks, cook inside, grill outside or eat an one of the awesome places on the beach! EXTREMELY GOOD VALUE, VERY SAFE & SECURE, VERY CLEAN. They love when everyone is having a relaxing time! Felt like I was saying good-bye to friends!
I can't wait to go back!
Room Tip: Just be sure to indicate if you do or do not want air-conditioning - they all don't have it. Our cottage was cooled by table & ceiling fans & even in July we were quite comfortable. we did not want to shut out the nature with A/C.
