I stayed there some years ago, my experince is similar to other guests' comments. Excellent view and very peaceful place, but not easy to access. Compared the cost of taxi, I think Mr. Kim charged a reasonable price, but still feels not so comfortable. If he can make it clear in his website, it would be better. I paid the... More

It's hard for me to write a completely positive review about this place as even though it was an amazing experience the opportunistic approach that the owner has was slightly off putting.

He even sought out the factory owner and got us... More

Upon checkout, the price charged us was more than twice what was agreed when we booked it in Seoul. In addition, what was supposed to be "free" transfer from the city ended up being payable and charged at pretty high rates. The place is 40min away by car and so remote that it is inaccessible by any other means. Essentially,... More
