4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

A charming little cottage and lovely place to relax on the banks of the nile.
Ingrid the owner lives next door and was very helpful.
If you want absolute solitude then the cottage is not for you as the compound is shared with another cottage. The pool is also shared with a retreat centre next door (that said it was very quiet).
The stairs to the mezzanine, where the 2 single beds are, are steep and not child friendly. If you have very young kids, or older accident prone children this may not be the place for you.
