Overall a truly amazing place worth the visit from adventurous travelers. Have waited too long to post the review - stayed twice in 2005. Good destination for couples or families with older children. Corey and family had the right balance of attentiveness and unobtrusiveness to make the stay enjoyable. Basic offerings yet comfort in a village that remains one of the more remote corners of the planet. Not for high maintenance people.
