Two people, Bevin and his sister, run this place. It is a garden well cared for, with lots of love and effort. In this garden they rent individual tents with airbeds. Nice bar and restaurant. They offer good food in the evening at reasonable price. Free Wifi. Under 35 US-Dollar per night which I still felt is a bit high.... More
