I stayed here for a trip back in Dec 2015. Alina and Julien were amazing hosts! After booking Alina was sending helpful travel tips and making herself available to answer any questions we had. My friends and I arrived on a late flight (2am) and the family was extremely welcoming. They have a beautiful open home. We switched to the 3 bed room which was beautiful; there were 3 bamboo beds that Julien hand made and a lovely balcony. We met a lot of their friends at a barbecue they hosted for the Holidays. All great people. Alina called taxis for us whenever we had plans to go out which helped a lot considering our phones weren't local. We spent the final day with the family, eating local foods, hiking, swimming, and trying local fruits. Overall a great experience! We definitely left with new friends.
