  • Description


    Hi, my name is Didot and. We are open minded and free spirited family so we will have so much fun beside of the daily job. My mother, little brother and nephews are living together so you won’t feel alone, especially our family and friend always come over just to hang out here. Before we start this home stay we also get used to hosted a lot of travelers, therefore, we already get used to have foreigners in the house.
    Our homestay has been closed since early 2019 due to the Covid pandemic and we are planning to reopen the homestay soon. But since it's been "abandoned" for more than 2 years it will need some jobs to repair things and make the homestay pretty and presentable again.
