The small estate consists of two spacious apartments, each of which offers a high degree of privacy thanks to the construction of the hotel. Both apartments offer identical facilities besides a different floor plan and a few small decorative details, and both come with a private veranda that stretches the whole width of the house, offering a beautiful view of the ocean. As well as that, relaxing lounge furniture contributes to the comfortable atmosphere of the hotel.

As is typical for a guesthouse, guests can choose between self-catering, breakfast, or half board, depending on their preference. Those who choose half board will be treated to a breakfast buffet and an à la carte dinner at the nearby restaurant of the Habitation hotel, run by the same family as the owner of the Fairy Tern; simply walk along the beach to reach the restaurant.
The value for money offered by this location is extraordinary, and the friendly, unobtrusive service provided by the owners is wonderful. In addition, depending on the availability of fruit in the garden, he also likes to supply guests with fresh fruit and coconuts, for yet another delicious treat!

Here we ended up in paradise again!!! The accommodation is huge, very clean, the fridge is full of essentials, a terrace with loungers and a view of the sea, 50m to the front there are also loungers right on the beach, everything is a bit isolated and private. Since we had booked half-board, we were allowed to take a short walk along the beach and also through the "jungle" for a few minutes, no problem at all, to eat at the Hotel la L'Hâbitation attentively again with a view of the sea! The owner couple Wendy and Kevin are simply brilliant. Very accommodating, always there to help when questions arose, we learned a lot about the island, were given fruits to try, coconut milk was served to us, all very warm thanks Wendy and Kevin! Also the help from??Unfortunately I can't remember the name, so kind. Since it often rained, umbrellas were organized and brought very easily...also a big thank you for everything!! Here island life was just good with everything. Small but super nice...... Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
