Staying at Holumba is an experience in itself...you don't need to get out of the property for anything .If you are into plants,orchids and flora fauna...this really is heaven for you -you can get mesmerized here .Nordan and his wife are great host and the staff is very courteous .
Stay in wood cot is recommended - you get an old world feel here .Ever small detail from paintings to ashtray in the cottage are carefully selected or restored . Neat and well equipped bathrooms with hot and cold water supply .
Be prepared to deal with some insects and mosquitos if you leave your cottage window open at night but I guess that a very small compromise when staying in complete natural setting..
There is natural spring flowing through the property...ducks, birds, dogs ,rabbits too.
They also have well stocked library on flora fauna and other similar interests .
I would recommend going there in winters...
