Hi I want to come over today for one or 2 nights. The only thing is that the bus doesnt get near your place... it is still half an hour walk. Are there tuktuks or anything which I can get ? Thanks!

"Raft rooms, cheap single rooms, bungalows around the garden"
"get rooms far from restaurant, the restaurant staff is not the most intelliget"
"Ladder/steps to first floor can be a little difficult"
"downstairs has private balconies, upstairs just a common walkway but also more light in the rooms..."
"Directly take a fan room, AC doesn't work well so we use all the time the fan of our ac room"
