This is a beautiful place in nature with incredible views. We liked that it was ecological with no electricity, rain water fed, natural materials, etc., but the water bed was quite uncomfortable to sleep on and i had to ask for a regular mattress to be put on the floor. The owners at first seemed to be friendly and accommodating but when we left, we received a shocking email from them accusing us of not finalizing our bill and requesting additional charges (even though we paid full amount before coming), of leaving dirty dishes in the kitchen (which we never did) and pointing out that they drove us to town (as we shared a ride one day) and brought me a mattress (because i could not sleep on a water bed) free of charge. We were really shocked by this surprising and inappropriate reaction. It is a nice place but it's a shame that the management is not at all professional. Please be aware of that issue.
