I found information about the Home Stay Strand somewhere on the net. I was especially attracted by beauty of the place and its original character. It should be underlined that the host is very responsive and friendly, both while booking tha apartment and during the stay. There is a wonderful atmosphere, good balance between a private house and good quality guesthouse.The Strand is located few meters from the road, in the middle of a splendid garden, full of birds, well educated monkeys (they do not jump on your terrace:) and squirrels. There are tasteful breakfasts served on your own terrace or in the lobby. Host and his staff are friendly, communicative and helpful, also in organising trips or hiring car.
We spent 8 days in Strand, left in mid-February and miss it ever since. It so much better than any hotel!
