This was our second time at The Last House. This time we brought family with us and were delighted that their reaction was the same as ours -- how perfect can a hotel be? Comfortable, aesthetically pleasing at every turn, delicious food, and unobtrusive, kind staff led by Ananda and Amit. We had the two rooms in the front -- the Moonamal, with Dutch doors and an outdoor shower/ bath, and the adjacent room with a front courtyard. Each room is beautifully appointed; you feel like you are outdoors indoors, protected from the elements but with the roar of the sea nearby. The lawn space is ideal for lounging and reading; the covered area ditto. One doesn't have to do much here to appreciate how relaxing it truly is. Just like last time, we wish we'd stayed longer.
