Jeanetta is the best, her place is safe and comfortable. I would recommend it to anybody needing to stay near the city but not in the city. The food was absolutely fantastic and she was able to accommodate my group nicely. We felt as if we were staying with family!

“The bridge past La Terraza was out, so there may have been less traffic than usual. We needed to take a taxi to Grecia for dinners ($3). Jenetta was very helpful with arranging a driver (Adrian was wonderful!) and van to other parts of the country. Breakfasts were excellent!”
