This was by far the best place we stayed. The room, downstairs with the living area and separate bedroom, was fantastic. Comfortable bed, ceiling fans, a/c, hot... More

Without a doubt, this is a clean, ideal and very wonderful place to stay ! Owners go above and beyond in providing guest services: hiking tips, local telephone calls, extra room chairs and mailing a package back to US. It is an owner and management like this that makes them # 1 trip advisor specialty guest home in San Cristobal.... More

We rented the ground floor apartment: two separate rooms, one with double bed, shower, toilet, fan, AC and TV, and the other one with a single bed, toilet and fridge. The rooms were perfectly neat, the... More
