Guest access
The house is clearly marked from East London road with our sign Guava Tree Cottage with an air bnb logo and our charity nursery schools Acacia tree Nursery schools in front. There are signs inside the property showing the small roads leading to Guava Tree cottage, The Lucky Bean Bean House [main house] and Apricot cottage where our co host Barbara Muller live. You will be able to find Guava Tree cottage easily if you put Guava Tree Cottage, Chintsa West in Google Maps and ask for directions.

Other things to note
The climate here is temperate, and it is never frigid here. When it is hot, a breeze often gives relief.

We have found that with Covid 19 some guests are renting Airbnb houses to party and play loud music at very unsociable hours. Guava Tree Cottage is on a farm, and very private but loud noise travels and disturbs the neighbours living on the farm. Do not rent Guava Tree cottage to party. The view, peace and tranquillity and amenities of our place is what makes Guava Tree Cottage special.
