We are located in a quiet neighborhood, close to the trail heads of various hiking trails, and just five minutes by taxi from the city center, for shopping and great local and international cuisine. this place was built and continues to run on eco-conscious principles with recycling, rain-water filtration, low-energy fixtures, home-made breakfasts and snacks, local natural soap and an organic farm.
