Stephan and staff was very good at answering my questions and created a very nice relaxed atmosphere. I really wanted the Moroccan room and had requested it over 3 months in advance and the response was they they cannot always book a certain room for people, it just depends on their bookings the week of, which didn't make sense to me at all, but I went with it.
We arrived at night and had a little trouble finding it but the staff helped us and stayed on the phone with us until we arrived, that was very appreciated. At first I was very disappointed because we were given the Aimlee room, a new room, but Stephan assured us we would love it, and we totally did! It was in the back of the house, which was great for privacy, altho it was noisy at night as we heard neighboring music every night (not sure if it was from the guesthouse or outside).
The outdoor shower and bathroom were wonderful! It made me feel like I was having a true hippie experience. It was only lit by candles at night, which some may not like because it was pretty dark still, but I loved it.
The shower pressure was horrible. We told the owner Sylvia and to my surprise, when we had come back from dinner, it was already fixed! The pressure still wasn't great, but it was much improved.
We got massages from the male therapist and he came to our room to treat us. That was wonderful, he did such a great job!
We wanted to try the breakfast, but it seemed like a small amount of food for $15. We usually ate for $15 total down the street, and one morning I bought yogurt and granola and fruit for us, and I prepared it in the kitchen.
We were very relaxed and happy when we left. Thank you!

"Everything about this guesthouse suggests relaxation," according to the March 2014 issue of New York Magazine.
