We were at Bananki home stay from mon-fri in early April. With 2 young children in our family of four we always look for a 50-50 mix of fun on the property and in the surroundings. This place can certainly accommodate varying needs of different guests. There is plenty to see and do within a 50 km radius of the... More

We had been to this place during September 2014. The place is just beautiful and the hosts are very very wonderful and hospitable. Food is great as well. What else does one need right? Ideal place if you are looking to get away for the busy life of city and enjoy a calm and relaxing weekend.
