It is a lovely place, and over time it gets better with clever little touches that enhance the stay. Great, walkable location.

Second time here. David is so nice and this is a great little spot. Super close to Rudramandir as well. I'll be back!

David's place is one of the best airbnb experiences I've had! The cottage is lovely, clean, super comfortable, spacious... the garden is beautiful, it's quiet and they've thought of literally everything. David and Celia are ideal hosts - attentive with such great care for details…

David was great. As soon as I arrived he made an effort to connect with me and show me the place. If needed he would of been available but I lived he let me relax in the place without bothering my stay. Place was great and I def would stay again if he would have me.

David was outstanding, very warm, and helpful on check-in. His place is incredible, and he offered to let me pick and eat apples from his tree. ​
