About 15 minutes walk away with the center of town, but there are shops close by where you could buy water and snacks. And there was also a hole in the wall Chinese restaurant a few blocks away that was good.
The place is set up where one half of the building is the house that Tote and his wife and 2 kids live in. On the other side are 4 guest rooms. The rooms have private entrances, so you nominally don't enter his side of the house. Outside of the 4 rooms is a nice outdoor common area for guests, with chairs, tables, and a TV (that thankfully no one used when I was there). The wifi was fast and reliable. The breakfast was good. The place felt very safe and secure.
Tote and his wife were extremely friendly and helpful. Tote is fluent in English and was eager to help book tours, and from the one comparison I made, it was for better prices than you could get from going directly through a tour agency. Tote and his wife also offered to drive me into town on some occasions, which was nice.
They have 2 friendly dogs there. I'm not a dog person at all, but I liked these dogs.
It was quiet most of the time and I slept well. But there was occasionally noise at night from neighborhood dogs barking, and on one night, a neighbor was playing loud music for a short while around 11pm. But I suspect that you will get that and more the closer you get to town, so I don't think that should stop you from booking this place. I would definitely recommend!
