We intended to stay one night at the delightful Kaiya House and ended up staying four. The en suite rooms were spotless and the beds were very comfortable. In addition, complimentary refreshments were available all day. The house is a beautifully decorated space with an airy, relaxing rooftop where we ate breakfast, watched birds during the late afternoons and whiled away time chatting with our lovely host, Debra, who. beguiled us with her fascinating stories. She couldn't have been more helpful, from giving us a guided tour of the town, arranging trips / drivers when we needed them,down to the finer details of lending umbrellas, binoculars, etc. Other members of staff at Kaiya were also very friendly and accommodating. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this excellent value for money accommodation to any of our friends or family.
