My son and I had most amazing stay with Mares. She was a great hostess!! The place is very clean, comfortable, and homey. Pictures true to life. Place is in walking distance to town, great location. She made us welcomed to her home, not just a room. It rained one day and she shared her country with me and drove me around area while my son went off on a different adventure. We were leaving from Balina and she was going there that morning so she offered to drive us to airport. She was lovely and we appreciated her kindness. She is a very interesting person and enjoyed spending time with her. When your on road for awhile its nice to have someone to share the beauty of their home and area. This was by far our favorite spot. Really would highly recommend. Two thumbs up.
