We arrived in the evening, and instead of taking us to our reserved room at her place, we were walked down the street to an unappealing place called Peace Villa. The room was a grim cement sweatbox with a tiny window and a fan that broke in the middle of the night- it was about 90F in there. In the morning, we didn't get the marvelous breakfast we had heard about- she apparently wasn't cooking that morning.
We cancelled our later reserved night.
Maison bien située à proximité de la plage et pas trop excentrée. Très bon accueil, même en arrivant à 3h du matin ! N'hésitez pas à profiter du dîner qui est excellent et pas cher.
Vivement recommandé au début/fin de séjour.
Seetah is very helpfull and fine woman, we like her :-). Living was very nice and clean, everything was perfect and food was excelent. We really recomended this place and will come back early :-) Thanks for all
Seetha est une hôtesse adorable, le seul problème est que airbnb ne lui reverse pas l'argent encaissé pour la location. Nous avons payé une deuxième fois le prix de deux nuits d'hôtel, et espérons maintenant réussir à nous faire rembourser par airbnb. Sinon, excellent rapport qualité / prix.
Très bonne adresse ou l'on se sent comme a la maison. Seetha cuisine très bien et sait répondre à nos demandes sans être envahissante.
Je conseille sans hésitations.

Seetha is a gentle Lady that takes true intereset in the stories of her guests. She joins in on spontaneous music and dancing if there is something going on at the place. Dinner is often a group event for all the guests.
