Although the trip itself was terrific, the accomodations were not. The owner of the tour and Parish house acted as his own cook, cleaner, and tour guide. He succeed in only one of those. He knew his tour information and gave interesting, informative tours. His breakfasts were decent and seved on tour daysonly and don't ask for coffee or anyhting until he opens the door. We were lectured on how "rare " his dishes were and we would have to pay if one was broken. And don't mess up the towels (late walmart) . We were given 3 towels and 2 cloths and one set of sheets for 2 weeks. His dryer was broken and if we expected clean linens after a week it would take unti 11:30m pm to return the SAME linens.Or we could wash them at the local laundry l--which we did. The rooms were not clean,---- dust covered the small table and spider webs filled the corners. The toilet area was clean, but I used Clorax wipes on all surfaces before we used anything. His kitchen was a combination of kitchen, utility room, storage area, and laundry---------scary to see that our food came from there-------US health dept would close him down. He was angry, defensive and spent most our of time telling us how no one liked Americans. Our experience was that HE was the only one that didn't like us. Ironically, he lives in Colorado and is an American citizen ----much to his dismay. Hire him as a tour guide--not as a inn keeper/host.
