A luxurious home away from home. The rooms are very spacious and beautifully decorated. Breakfast - eaten family-style at one big table - is delicious and quickly prepared. Service is incredibly friendly and the owners and staff are always willing to go the extra mile. Free wifi is another plus!

The guesthouse is a short ride to the downtown center. Location is near the Presidency, which is good for running/walking. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed with a small kitchen. The atmosphere is great, including an "on your honor" bar on a rooftop terrace. Breakfast is good, typically served at a large dining room table with all guests...
