This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The staff made this trip one of the best stays on our travels! We ad so much fun and it felt like a home. Each morning we received a welcome hug as we left, and in the evenings we had wonderfully home cooked Brazilian food. Town is a 10 minutes walk, and the best it tight opposite.

I would definitely go back! 10/10!!
