We stayed in Iara's house for 6 nights. Our host is a heart-warming person who wants to make your stay comfortable. Her house is yours and besides your own bedroom with private bathroom you are welcome to use her living room, kitchen, sundeck and garden. She gives tips about things to do and is willing to drive you around in exchange for gas money. The price-value quality of this B&B; is good.
A note for people from Europe: an american breakfast is not what we are used to get B&B; in Europe. It contains supermarket bread, peanut butter and jam (homemade). In Iara's house you can upgrade you're own breakfast by using the oven or boiling an egg. Read more
I offered her a very simple breakfast, with tea and bread, butter, home made jam as a courtesy, because she was paying only $43 for herself and her 19 years old son. Nobody can get any cheaper than this. In order to get continental breakfast you need to go to a 4 stars hotel or 5 stars hotel and pay for it.
