Out in the countryside, 7km or so west of town along Hwy 323, this friendly place lives up to its name: 'Relaxation House'. Tile-floored rooms arranged around the florid garden are simple but very well maintained, and hosts can arrange anything from cooking classes to onward transport.
You can ask ahead for a free pick-up from town, but it's best to have your own wheels if staying here for a few days.
