The location is great for a long-term stay, walking distance to the beach (5 min) while still close to town (5-7 min cab or motorbike ride) without being in the middle of it all. The small apartment setup gives you a little bit of home while still being somewhere new. We stayed for almost two months and it worked out well for us. Decent space with everything you need (even laundry!) The only minor thing was the kitchen was a little sparse on cooking equipment.
We loved that the house was situated amongst gardens as we would watch (and wave) to the urban farmers every day. Also loved the views of the ocean and mountains from here, and really enjoyed going to the beach (almost daily) for a walk to see the fishermen.
But what really made our stay special was Lan, the housekeeper. She is a wonderful person and does an excellent job at taking care of both you and the apartments.More
