"Papaya Heaven"

Prachtige villa in een geweldige privé-tuin welke je alleen deelt met Villa Holly. Deze villa's staan ongeveer 15 meter van elkaar af, maar afgescheiden door struiken dus je hebt absoluut privac… More

Thanks for you review and for your advice.
Some of you advice are already been implemented .
We been using John the taxi driver since we decided to put our villas in the rental market and we found him very reliable, he does not mind to wait for you at the shopping centre while you do your first day shopping , in the way back from the airport.
If you think there is something missing like DVD's or like in this case.. Kitchen clothes , do not hesitate to ask my staff . .they will provide them to you.
We use the full Zuku satellite tv package of about 100 channels.
Has hot water system we use an electric boiler, for it to generate hot water we have to switch it on and live it switched on , 5 minutes on is not enough.
As Internet connection we use the Safaricom 3g very soon 4g usb dongle that connects to internet through a Sim card that we provide together with the modem Usb dongle and laptop if you need one, we are looking in to make it wireless.
At times we do not get black outs for several month and sometimes we get a few in a week , luckily we have a generator.
