There is not a lot more to add to the other reviewers' posts. While we were hesitant because we are not fans of B&B's and the potential company at the large breakfast table, we were relieved when we met the owners, the mother-in-law, the young daughter, and of course "Rabbit" the rabbit. We were fortunate that the communal breakfast was shared with Canadians. True to their Canadian stereotype, there were super friendly, curious, intelligent, and easy conversationalists.
Our room was located upstairs next to a veranda with a largish table and chairs, and a sofa. We took full advantage after a morning of shopping at Tonola. We walked into town, picked up drinks and snacks in the plaza area and tromped back to watch the night arrive while on the sofa.
The family is very thoughtful, curious, and willing to offer ideas and conversation in English and in Spanish. More importantly is that they maintain a line of respect for privacy. We never felt invaded. Our concern was with other travelers as we sometimes have experienced loud, strongly, opinionated people from another planet. We were lucky. And Rabbit came out to visit several times reminding us that as tourists, we are also guests.
