We offer affordable comfort, a delightful residential house with a courtyard full of potted plants, a couple of hammocks and attractive patio furniture. The other large patio is being converted into a barbecue area for the use of guests. The spacious high-ceiling lounge overlooking the courtyard is a popular gathering place, furnished with comfortable sofas and dining room table. We have a great time!!

A large collage of photos on the wall is the owner's memento of many guests from all over the world who have visited Gaudy's. People of all ages stay here! One of our favorite guests was a wonderful adventurous 75 year old traveler!

See you soon!!
