Staying at the Bon Maison makes you feel like you're a local. Walking back from a local corner shop with your food which you can cook in your own room kitchen (a new friend once made me an excellent Gumbo), you look at the 'tourists' and feel somewhat sorry that - unlike you - they don't stay round the corner. (A bit like how I feel in my own city - Edinburgh, Scotland.) The two owners (if they're still there - it was long time ago) are great when you need them but also leave you to do your own thing. A great wee place. Must go back.
