This is the one and we loved this place.
Mediterranean-style buildings, lovely garden and common area, bedroom, dining room, and even bathroom. They are so beautifully done. You feel calm and welcomed by the owner.
Japanese style futon bed - we loved it. It is a bit hard, so some people might not like it.
eco composting toilet - this was very clean, but you need to scoop the things like bark from a bucket into the toilet bowl instead of flushing. I didn't like this bit, but could bear with it.
clothes hanger (no drier) - When I wanted to use the clothes line, it was all occupied by their towels. Because of weather (looking for a sunny day), I wanted to do washing on the sunny day, but couldn't use it.
We could have only one evening meal because the other nights were all booked. The main meal and dessert both were excellent!! Everybody eats the same food because there is only one menu on the day, but it is not a problem. Good atmosphere and many locals seem to come here.
The only thing that left me a bitter taste about this dining experience was the bad red wine that I was served. The young waitress brought my red wine by glass instead of pouring it at the table like she did it first time with white wine. Anyway, the red wine tasted so so so bad,They have only one wine list for selling by glass (200 ml) or carafe (500 ml jug) so I was really confused whether they served this bad wine when they were serving a top class meal. I had my first white wine and that was good. don't think I've had any bad wine like this. Even a very cheap one that you get for $6-7 dollars per glass at a fair or somewhere like that didn't taste like this. I regretted that I didn't tell the waitress that there was something wrong with this wine.
Other than the red wine which went wrong on the day, other things were all fine and I recommend highly this place if you are looking for somewhere unique, comfortable, soothing and welcoming.
