I stayed at the villa with my family for two weeks in June, 2016.
On a 1 to 10 scale I give this place a 9. What you see on the photo is exactly what you get. The house itself is an old house, but very much functional. It’s more spacious than photos had me believe. The Internet was good and reliable. We suffered neither power nor water cut.
There’s a really nice supermarket a short walk away that came really handy to my family and i. The neighbourhood is really quiet, and safe. We had no security problems whatsoever during our stay.
Nelly is a lovely host, she was there to welcome us and was always a phone call away whenever we needed something. So whatever problem you may encounter rest assured she’ll tend to your needs. She really went out of her way to make us feel welcomed and comfortable.
It's very close to town and there are private cars that work as public transport to take people to and from town. But you can also call a taxi to town for just $5.
I wouldn’t think twice to contact her on my next visit to Byo, and I, without any doubt recommend it to anyone who wants a home away from home experience.
Thank you for hosting us, Nelly.
