We stayed in the 4x4 "house". 10 people slept there with 1 bathroom and toilet. Hot showers in July are only possible for the first persons. The furniture is in a very poor condition and is not enough for the number of people. Advice to owner is getting the accommodation on the same standard as the price you ask.

I was not so upset about the road to the farm as what I was when we arrived at the place. They said we are lucky that we have the honeymoon suite, this had a very nice bed in newly build hut. Open plan Bedroom, kitchen (if you can call it that), bathroom, with a separate toilet. I did not have a fire place or heater. The place was cold and seriously the only door in the hut does not even lock. We asked for something better. OMW. They took us to the 4x4 house, well it had sleeping place for 9 people. One toilet and a shower....
