    I felt very welcomed and comfortable during my stay. The host family couldn’t be nicer. Loved the pool and privacy of the guest house. Great food, all local and seasonal.

    We really enjoyed our host, he was responsive helpful and fun! The dinners he prepared were lovely although we would have appreciated more veggies or salad. Our room was teeny tiny and the apartment was shared, not what we expected.
