Meena is a charming hostess who made me and my 19yr old son feel at home as soon as we arrived. She is an excellent cook and worked hard to prepare a variety of tasty local dishes for us to sample. Her cookery lesson was great fun and definitely worthwhile as we learnt lots of tips to try out back... More

Staying at Meena's wasn't quite what I expected although it's difficult to tell what a place is going to be like sometimes. The house itself is very interesting and has a lovely seating area with a central space with plants open to the elements where you can sit and read or use the free wi-fi. The bedroom was basic and...
