Liked: Staff & service

I stayed in cabin #9 with no WiFi. Every time I need internet, I should go to reception area. To eat, I should go to town. Did not see as much wildlife on property as I expected, based on reviews.

I don’t have words in order to describe it. Do not believe pictures, check yourself first before booking.

The staff and owners are so friendly and welcoming! I’d say the atmosphere was the best part! Leaving a no so great review for a few reasons: The apartment was advertised to sleep 6, but there were no bed linens for the futons. There was plumbing issues. Not hot water (which isn’t a huge deal but if you’re paying 175$ a night it would be nice). And last, the coffee maker was molded out and generally all the dishes were not completely clean. To be clear, I think it is a great place, I was just very disappointed in what I got for the money.
