Maldives, Villingili – Aavehi

We came across a private apartment rental opportunity on a Facebook group we are a part of, and while the price was high for our normal accommodation budget, it was an amazing chance to visit this beautiful part of the world. The apartment is currently rented by some expats and while they were away on holiday they were sub-renting their two bedroom, two bathroom, ground floor space.

It was a spacious apartment with fully stocked kitchen, dining area, lounge and each bedroom having an ensuite. Air conditioning units and ceiling fans throughout. Perfect for a week in paradise.Maldives_Villingili_AavehiVillingili is a local island with only two or three accommodation options so we were definitely ‘living with the locals’. The apartment block was a short walk from the ferry terminal and the apartment owner greeted us to let us into the building and provide the keys. The current renters had left some amazing details, notes and tips for during our stay. Just a great find.

There were numerous convenience stores on the island and a few eating options that kept us satisfied for the week.

Distant to:

  • One Love Beach – 270m
  • Villingili Public Beach – 450m
  • Ferry Terminal – 600m

This local island is small (800m x 600m) so easy to walk around and there are only electronic scooters, bicycles and a few taxis.

Price = $116.14 NZD per night
