The highlight of this place was the warm and friendly host, Tina herself. If you have no itinerary planned, fret not, as Tina knows the...

The place is nice and very cute, with animals in a garden and a cozy common area. There are good outdoor showers and its clean. But the best thing about this place is Tina the lovely woman who runs the place. She really makes you feel at home and shows you nice restaurants and is so helpful. Thank you Tina!!!...

If you're looking for a charming place with a secret garden, two turtles, a rabbit, a duck and a very nice host, that's the place to go.
