The studio is a good value. It is quiet, situated in a residential area at walking distance to the small market, the village, and the sea. The aesthetics are as pictured; the murals are great and there is taste in the bedding, etc - a good sense of color, etc. There are some nice details in the kitchen, like leaving a ten liter bottle of water, oil and vinegar, matches, sugar and tea, etc. A few more items like cups and bowls would be helpful. It was a space that heats up a lot, being exposed to the sun all day and under a terrace - nice to sit in when the wind is right, with a good view - that receives the sun all day. I suffered at first but Maodo, Geny's wonderful assistant, repaired a fan for me. That was appreciable. Very. There is also a mosquito problem. Geny has made an effort to put in screens everywhere and one bed had a net, but those items cut off air flow, unfortunately. Be prepared! The lighting could be better - there is one bare bulb. Perhaps that will be rectified soon. There is a large fridge, a gas stove, and a hot water heater (it doesnt get very hot but for some of us that is much better than cold water!). These furnishings improve the comfort level, of course. You won't see Geny very much, she is a busy woman, but Maodo is across the hall and very friendly and helpful. You can make friends with the little pup Sam if you wish. He will bark but that is his job. Bring a good flashlight for coming back from the village at night - there is a good restaurant and there are many musical activities on the weekend - as the village is dark and the roads rough. Of course there are power outages at times - welcome to Senegal - and sometimes water problems. Geny provides extra bottles of non drinking water; keep them filled! You will want to cook sometimes as the walk is a bit far to the village, so bring food with you, since what you can find there is limited. There is a small market with a few vegetables, open in the morning. Next to it you can find the shared taxis to several destinations. Maodo got me a horse cart to take my luggage there when I left! The village is sympathique as the French say but isolated, so come prepared and you will enjoy your stay.
