Nice and comfy stay
I had 2 rooms and we got one with the farm view and other a normal one. The rooms were better than my expectations and will definitely recommend the stay here, as it's really hard to find such a quality room and property at this price. The only thing to take care of is that at times there can small insects or mosquitoes for which they had kept a hit spray in every room, but not such a major concern if you leave your room closed mostly in evenings.
