In general, a pleasant experience one could reasonably expect to live near the nature.
Positives: nice basic room with reasonably sized bathroom, pleasant little private deck with hanging egg-shaped chair and free wifi. Be sure to bring your sweater, it gets cold at night.
Negatives: power failure for 10 minutes during the night around 11pm (Good thing there was emergency light). Hot shower here sucks (it works but the pressure is low).
