Very beautiful situated in the middle of the nature.The house is very cosy, with a nice veranda, where you can hear a cacophony of singing birds. In the night the sound of the frogs and grasshoppers, the bush baby, and many other animal. I few times a monkey pasted my house, slowly walking. The houses are clean, very well decorated and with a hot shower. Until now 1 electric bicycle and normal bicycles are available to make it easy to reach town and Utende beach. With electric bicycle you can make a trip to Kilidono of discover the island. Vincent and Linda, the owners of this place are very cheerful, friendly, interesting and willing to help you and advise you with everything. I felt very much welcome and at home. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were very tasteful. The beach is 5 minutes walk away. I recommend this place for amazing and peaceful moments !
