we were 3 nights in this nice guesthouse. The rooms are basic but for the price ok. The view is amazing and the owner´s very very friendly. We also rent a motorbike here to see the nice neighborhood. I can recommend this place. Stay here!!!

You will immediately get to know the other people living here. But because the house is made of wood, you... More

Couple of months ago i stayed there, but really nice homestay with lovely owners. great view, really good hot showers. Bad side is the rooms are really hot and matrasses really thin. Join Gav on his speedboat for a snorkeltrip, its worth it!

Nini, Gav and of course little Sunshine have made our stay. We have relaxed so much and feel like different people leaving! Hospitable, friendly family that... More

I stayed here with a friend over Christmas. We were only going to stay for 2 nights but ended up staying for 5 as it was so relaxing. The owners Nini and Gav are really helpful and gave us lots of information; not just about Bira, but also in helping us plan our onward journey. The place is perched high... More
