On 15th December 2014 my family of 10 and 10 others in the group were warmly welcome upon arrival by the staff of the boutique hotel known as Why House. It stood on 3 acres of land with a swimming pool and lots greenery. The beach was about 15 minutes walk from the hotel. In the morning there were birds and squirrels running around looking for food. During my stay there I saw a peacock on the ground and 2 monkeys up on a tree.

What impressed us most was the friendly and smiling staff ready to give us assistance whenever needed. The food was fantastic. We had fish, prawns, crabs, meat , vegetables, fruits etc.

At Why House adults and children played together in the pool. A friend Isabel was thrown into the pool fully dressed. I was too slow to snap a picture. Kids liked swimming in the sea too. My grandson, Guy went surfing for 2 days. Emma and Mark took surfing lessons. They enjoy it so much and I believe they would be back next year. For me I enjoy the cool beer by the beach watching my grand-children surfing.

The ladies had their share of fun too. They went shopping in a convoy at the Rampart which was a Dutch fortified area in the colonial era. They liked the jewellery shop Orchid House so much that they visited the shop again and again including a last minute shopping before leaving for home.
Ladies shopping galore

Why House has very good comments in the guests book and as well as in the Tripadvisor reviews. No wonder it was awarded Certificate of Excellence for 2013 and 2014
