Come share this unique experience, 25 DE MAYO awaits you!
My girlfriend, dog and I stayed for NYE looking for a quiet place to receive the new year.
Our choice couldn't have been better!
Marian Ines and Roberto (hosts) were kind and caring. They were always looking forward to make us feel at home and asking if we needed something. They were wiling to help us with our needs like cooking or going around 25 de Mayo (the town).
Their home is comfortable, with a huge backyard which Fiona, our dog, enjoyed a lot! There was a little wading pool waiting for us in case we were hot.
The room is nice, big, with en-suite bathroom. Clean bed
and so is the room, Clean bed sheets and towels were available.
We will definitively go back, and recommend it to anyone.
