          Stayed in Tallows, the beds are terrible, feels like there is no mattress. Be prepared to wake up very early as it's extremely loud in the bush with the animals and workers starting early. 15 minutes from town. Not convenient.

          Interesting place to stay as an alternative to hotels / motels and airbnb. Nice atmosphere, fantastic location and tremendous climate. Although the prices could be lower as the standard is saving on everything.
