Guest Testimonials

"We stayed at Heliconia Hideaway for our honeymoon, and could not have chosen better. We arrived at our villa in the evening and immediately fell in love. We were greeted with beautiful music playing, a bottle of champagne on ice, and a bowl of fresh tropical fruit. The villa itself is right on the beach, so we stepped right off the deck on to the beach. It is a superb private hideaway as their name suggests. We are already planning our next trip and looking to visit again for our 1 year wedding anniversary."

“Is it not true that we have all seen the pictures read the descriptions of a place only to find that it is not what it looks like nor what they said it was? WELL Heliconia does and is what it looks like and the descriptions are possibly even understated. Truly, a very special place in the world. A villa on a stunning private beach,great swimming and snorkelling at any tide level (beware as not all places on the island are good at low tide!). It is so romantic and very special.An endless list of special touches really. The gardens around the villa are really delightful. The hosts are involved and uninvolved at a superb level by this I mean they are really helpful friendly and keen to ensure you are happy and cared for in every way,yet they also respect and care for your privacy and quiet relaxation.This is the way the staff also interact really helpful and friendly yet unobtrusive.”
Stunning in every way!, Tracy H, Auckland
"My wife and I stayed for 3 nights as a stopover on our way to New Zealand. We enjoyed it so much that we made arrangements with John and Hinano to stopover on our way back from NZ. Our gracious hosts arranged for fresh coconut, and fruit to be delivered everyday in addition to supplying us with some great wine and champagne. The spacious, well appointed villa is a perfect accommodation for a couple looking to get away. Great snorkeling and kayaking are just feet from the back porch. The views of the lagoon and the sounds of the waves breaking on the reef are unbelievable. If you get the idea that we enjoyed our stay--you're right!! Ace and Heather"
Great hosts, great villa!, Ace & Heather, Georgia USA
