Terrific location. Mark was a welcoming host, offering suggestions about where to eat and what to see, but gave us our privacy and independence. Several flights of stairs to access the homestay so not recommended for those with accessibility issues. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
How do I book?
Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile.
