Ben's is a beautiful, well equipped cottage directly on the backwaters. He and his wife Anjou offer great service whenever you wish for it (meals, boat rides, massages) or you simply enjoy peaceful backwater living. We had a wonderful time and were happy we could extend for one more night. Our bike ride with Riju was great fun.
