Owner was professional yet friendly (husband’s 4th visit, my first). Spotless accommodation, thoughtful food gift as we arrived late at night. Gorgeous setting, tranquil garden, quiet location close to dining options. A “hidden gem” indeed❤️❤️

No water day
I gave them a lower rating because that the water was shut off for a complete day in witch it ruins the fact that could not take a shower nor do any laundry although they did try to help by providing buckets for flushing the toilet I believe that if the water has been on ,it was for the most part close to 5 star rating
