I was thrilled to visit this based on the 5 star reviews. However, the overall stay was below expectations. The main reason maybe that the owner's maid and wife were on leave when we visited in 3rd week of March 2017. As a result he was alone managing all things. Breakfast was good but there was no option for lunch...

Before i pen down the review my request would be to have right expectations from the home stay. The home-stay are unlike 5 star luxury with butler on call 24X7 or all the amenities at any given moment the guests would demand. However, it is more core to the culture and real touch points can be experienced in them. We...

We stayed there two nights. Rooms are spacious, clean with a balcony overlooking the river and very well maintained. Breakfast was good but we did get the feeling of it being a little limited. Our host was very kind to have a quick breakfast of omlets and juice ready even by 6:30 am as we wanted to leave early.  The...

This homestay is on a farm of cocoa, coffee and pepper situated on a really peaceful river. It's a short walk to the local village where there is an off licence if you'd like to pick up some beers. The food at this homestay was fantastic, all home cooked and delicious. The host is really chilled and very welcoming. Highly...
