It would be good to have direct access to the bathroom / toilet. We like the bike ride and meeting some local people and the foot spa.

This is a very pretty garden house where the hotess is an excellent chef. We ate very well and sleep comfortably. Thanks to their hospitality. The cycle tour with Tu was marvellous and to return the garden house to the foot bath in pomelo was lovely. Tu is the best of guide.

Helping cook the breadfruit for supper the food was excellent. The bike ride was fun although we haven’t ridden bikes for many years. The walk was great fun and we saw rice papers drying and got close to some buffalo.
