The place was very peaceful and my husband enjoyed listening to the howlers and the birds in the area. The place is set up on a hill that is a bit out of town and not an easy walk especially back to the place since it is all up hill from the center of the village. If you are going to stay here a car really comes in hand or you might end up taking taxis that will add up. It will cost you about $6 one way to or back from town.
We stayed there for two nights on our recent stay to the area. We were also there at a very busy time over the holidays and there were really no places with vacancies. Upon arriving we were told that we were expected the day before and they did not have a room for us. The owner was upset that we had not shown up and she had given away our room. After she went back to check her email and confirmed the nights we were actually there on the correct day for our reservation but the room we reserved was no longer available. After some calls that there were no other places available in the area she moved her intern and made up a room for us for the couple of nights that we were there. This was very stressful and we were not sure what we were to do at that point. The room worked but the futon bed was not super comfortable that we were provided with and we had to walk to a shared bathroom.
It was cooler there at night due to the location and it all worked out but it did not start out great when we were accused of showing up the wrong day.
