The key to this charming home, located on the fringe of the capital and across from a large weekend flea market, is the owner/proprietor, Sioa. The consummate host, he had a HUGE breakfast buffet on offer both mornings I stayed there. Because the city shuts down on Sundays, he even shared a big helping of his family's Sunday roast with me upon my return from whale watching. He upgraded me to a king room after I'd booked Standard, and in short, gave me Rolls Royce treatment at Kia prices. Why can't every guesthouse be like this one? He is a gem and I look forward to a repeat visit in the future.
