Bach is as the photos describe, nothing flash but gets the job done. You are in one big room with separate toilet and shower. I would recommend bringing bug spray/repellant as we got eaten alive at night even with the windows and doors closed! Also, the futon/couch bed is not great to sleep on, so would sleep on the bed or single mattress if possible! Easy access to the bus to town.
A cost effective but quite small bach. It's basically one small room, with kitchenette (no oven) and saggy futon for the couch sitting area. Would advise friends to spend a little extra cash for something a bit nicer. No smoke alarms, no screened windows- was hot but had to keep doors closed as tons of mozzies. No extraction- windows very condensed. Dirty, greasy, rusty old fan to circulate air. Old pots/pans- one already dirty. Boggy grass, shoes left sopping walking to bus stop.
The listing is as it is pictured - no window screens, a kitchenette, small 'room' (a studio). Nature is here, too: rain & mozzies. Got coils, candles and insect spray onsite (I travel w/ repellent, myself). Yes, I mix up the modern with the 'still able to use - not throw away' items (the greenie quirky in me) - the slouchy couch, old fan, odd pots/pans (I'll tell cleaner to check pots guests return to drawers - thanks) but all do their job just fine. It's a simple bach. That's all.
