Bungalow in Brufut, Atlantic Coast, Gambia - Peaceful Location, Just 5 Minutes Walk To The Beach And Sheraton Hotel
Situated in Brufut Gardens, opposite the Sheraton hotel our 3 bedroom detached bungalow with swimming pool provides a very peaceful retreat. It's a 6 minute stroll to the Sheraton Hotel where you will find miles of deserted beach and 3 minute walk to the main road which leads to all major areas in the Gambia. To the back of the house is a shady veranda (ideal for breakfast or an evening drink). Accommodation includes airport transfers and a daily maid which will be provided by our ‘Gambian family’. The family will also make themselves available to you if you would like to explore the Gambia in a more independent way. Pa has a large variety of trips to offer, but if there is anywhere you want to go he will take you. There are supermarkets a few minutes drive up the main road, and excellent quality local vegetables can be found for sale at the side of the road.

- Notes on accommodation: Shady Veranda, Swimming Pool, Air Conditioning in Lounge and Ceiling Fans in Bedrooms. Fridge Freezer, Oven, Hob, Washing Machine. Internet Access - there is a ‘dongle’ in the house that can be credited and used for internet access. Power supply is adequate but as in many African countries can be haphazard. We have a small generator but it will not stand up to multiple use of appliances such as hair-dryers, toasters and electric kettles. It does support computers, battery chargers, radios, ipods etc. There is hot and cold water but the system is gravity fed, so please do not expect the kind of pressure you get in Europe. Outside: Outside is a fully tiled south facing garden with small swimming pool and a shady veranda with tables and chairs. There are also 2 sun loungers. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: The house is cleaned daily at no extra charge. The maid will also wash and iron your clothes. Bed linen and towels are changed twice weekly. We ask guests to bring their own beach towels.
