We had a great time and host was helpful, friendly and suggested places to explore around. We had our breakfast at the Farmers Market, which was a great experience. I will be recommending this place to other people. A great place to relax!

For the price one would expect alot more. There are a few things that management need to look at to bring the accommodation up to the level it was once at. Hosts are nice, try but things need to be attending. No cutlery in the...More
