The Home Escape THE MOON Testimonials

I am not entirely sure I want to share this gem with anyone else

First off this is the first time I have bothered to review a holiday accommodation and secondly I am not entirely sure I want to share this gem with anyone else. But in the spirit in which we were received by the most gracious hosts of THE PLANTATION I feel duty bound to take the time to give credit where it is due.

The property itself is of course stunning. Look at the pictures. It does not disappoint in the flesh and nor is it photographed omitting noisy neighbours or ugly views. Secluded, subtle and an oasis of peaceful calm. Most previous reviews mention the fireflies on the lawn of an evening. I now understand why. Impossible to put into words or indeed film or photograph. What most don’t mention is the incredible calm of early morning there.

Good architectural fore thought meant my family of five ‘lived’ easily in this space. The space works very well. Location wise very convenient for Merida and the week barely gave us time to scratch the surface of all the sites within day trip distance. Utterly genuine honest hosts who are as enthused by the houses as we were. A rare find and a true ‘keeper’.

Best vacation ever

We had the absolute best vacation at this gorgeous property. Everything was perfect. I have rented many many houses and villas over the years and by far, was the most responsive and considerate of all that I have rented. Arranged for daily cleaning and a chef to come twice. The experience could not have been better and the house is even better than it looks in the pictures. Its a gorgeous, magazine-spread-worthy home. As a Senior Vice President at The New York Times i have travelled the world and was seriously impressed, we cant wait to return!

Most spectacular views imagineable

It's unlike anything we have visited before; the property is a 4000 acre working sheep farm and to get to THE COVE - a modern glass-encased, open plan one bedroom home - you need to take the farm's own 4x4 about 45 minutes. The drive offers some of the most spectacular views imaginable so it's no hardship. Once at THE COVE we had the run of the property; it has a modern, industrial feel, with breathtaking views across a deserted bay popular with seals, gas fireplaces both inside and out, a modern kitchen for preparing the vacume sealed gourmet meals pre-delivered, a sleek bathroom with a deep soak tub, and an outdoor jacuzzi.
