The neighborhood is a friendly and safe village suitable for children to join in with the locals and play football. Tourists are a new concept to the village people but if you need help you can guarantee they will do anything to help.

During your stay
Please note the hosts will be sharing the kitchen to cook their meal after work. This is usually for an hour. The hosts enjoy to socialise with the guests but if you want your own space that’s fine.

The hosts dont speak any English but guests always love Shaban's game of charades where he uses his hands and feet and feet to communicate.

Our next door neighbour Ida speaks English and she often comes over if we need some translation done. Our guests can also call Elis (who manages the booking) once they checked in for any questions. Overall we will do everything possible to ensure language won't be a barrier and ensure your stay is a pleasant one :)

The couple are at work from very early during school hours but can be available and will try to accommodate their guests. Please give them enough time to buy and prepare the foods if you're thinking of having lunch or dinner as everything is bought fresh on the day and cooking can take a few hours.
