Hiring the whole house

Jungle Tide is available for hire as a whole bungalow on a staffed basis, with or without the separate Garden Room (Kingfisher). Whole house hires are for a minimum of one week as Jungle Tide is our home and we would need to leave and find somewhere else to stay – which we are happy to do if the hire is for a week or more. Rates shown below are for self-catering groups. If you want our staff to prepare meals for you please enquire about the additional costs.


The maximum number of people the house can accommodate is 12 without the Garden Room and 18 including the Garden Room. These numbers include two people using folding beds; if everyone is in a ‘proper’ bed the maximum numbers are 10 and 16 respectively.

Unfortunately due to previous experience we do not accept all male groups.

Room arrangements

There are four bedrooms in the house and a fifth separate room in the garden. All five are en suite and all the house rooms have their own section of veranda. Three of the house bedrooms are next to one another:

Woodpecker is a family bedroom with views to three sides and sleeps four – one double bed and two singles.

Barbet is a twin room with space for an extra folding bed if needed so sleeps 2-3 people.

Coot is a double room with space for an extra folding bed if needed so sleeps 2-3 people.

Minivet is the bedroom we use and is at the opposite end of the house. It is a double room only.

Kingfisher is our garden room which is in our lower gardens close to the swimming pool. There are 48 steps down from the house to the lower gardens so this room is not suitable for people with mobility problems. There is a double bed and two sets of bunk beds so sleeps 6 people.

Our dining table seats 12 people maximum  but an extra table can be brought in if needed.


Jungle Tide is a staffed bungalow. Our housekeepers, Martin and Rani, live on site and will keep everything spotless. They will do your laundry, manage the pool and gardens, provide meals (if required) wash up and generally deal with everything – so you can relax! They can also arrange transport for you if required.

Terms and Conditions

Full terms and conditions will be provided when you book. The essentials are:

  1. A Security Deposit of Rs30,000/- is required This is payable when you pay for your stay, at least 14 days in advance of arrival. It is repayable no later than 14 days after your departure date if your group has complied with the main requirements, which are:
  2. Respect for our staff. Jungle Tide is their home and they need time off and to be treated at all times with respect. If our staff report behaviour which we consider to be exploitative or inappropriate your entire security deposit will be forfeited.
  3. Reasonable care not to damage our property. Of course we expect occasional breakages but if our staff report that damage was caused either deliberately or by negligence on the part of anyone in your group, including children, replacement costs will be deducted from your security deposit. For example we have had instances of beds being broken by children jumping on them unsupervised by the parents.

We have our own dogs, but if you want to bring your own pets and are prepared to manage them so that they will be OK with our dogs we may be able to agree this, but please discuss arrangements with us first. You will not be required to look after our dogs! They do sleep in the house but are not allowed in bedrooms or on furniture. Both are very docile and child-friendly and they will also accompany you on walks if you wish.
