It was so easy to arrange a safari with this host. It was an excellent price, he found me a group I could join. The vehicle was really good, the driver had been doing safaris for 40 years and spotted alot of things we would have missed. We saw alot. The guide was really knowledgable and informative. Really enjoyable I loved it.

We stayed as a family of four in two rooms. The rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable with good mosquito nets. The hostess was very kind and helpful with all of our needs. We ate in the restaurant one lunch time and portions were good value and generous. The location is convenient for lake walks and access to the town centre and the temple. We would happily stay here again.

The room size is little small, but we just used the room for one night and morning left for safari so it was good for a family of 3. Entire property, room, beds, washrooms were very clean, and in great condition. Overlooking beautiful paddy fields on both the sides. The Ebert family are amazing host, we being vegetarians, Mrs. Ebert cooked some really amazing curry and rice. We are so humbled that we still remember that taste and will never forget the experience. We even celebrated our daughter's birthday and ma'am was very kind to arrange the cake. Thank you so much for your hospitality.... I highly recommend this place! GV

I stayed for one night here whilst on a round trip, just to go to Yala. The owner can sort you a good tour, our driver was great, to top it all we saw a leopard which was incredible. The staff are friendly, welcoming and helpful. My room was clean and comfortable with a lovely view and they have a family run restaurant where the food was great and at a good price. What's not to love. Would totally recommend a stay here.

We stayed here for one night prior to taking a trip to Yala National Park the next day. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. We would definitely recommend staying here if you are planning on coming to this area.
