This room is one of four in a guest house owned by two hosts who live here. They will ensure that you want for nothing during your stay, and in this room in particular, you will find all the space you need and a double bed offering plenty of comfort. You’ll have full access to an outdoor terrace area including a charcoal grill, and judging by the endlessly positive reviews left by previous guests, the words and facts can’t do justice to how pleasant you can expect your stay to be. You’ll have access to the kitchen to make your own meals, and the chances are that with other guests staying there, you’ll make a few new friends too.
