Hotel Jiggetts (aka my house)

My roof recently got fixed because it was leaking in seven places, two of which were on my bed. But it still makes for great luxury accommodations. 
   Like peeing in a bucket?
   How about reading by paraffin lamp?
   I'm sure you just love bucket baths, right?
   Well, if you like any of the above, then Hotel Jiggetts surely is the place for you to rest your loins!
   Hotel Jiggetts is a traditional Basotho house called a rondaval. It's a hut with a thatched, or straw, roof, that is traditionally used for cooking in Basotho culture.
   Hotel Jiggetts has no running water or electricity, but as the proprietor, I've made it as cute and comfy as can be for you!
   Here's what you can expect during your stay:

Lodging: This one-room hut is about the size of a matchbox, so if you don't like to stretch or breath, this IS definitely the place for you!

Rates: One jar of Trader Joe's Cookie Butter and two boxes of quinoa will suffice for payment. You're never too good to barter!

Meals: Curry veggies. Thai noodles. Banana pancakes. The grub is pretty scrumptious at Hotel Jiggetts. Pick your plate and Chef Jiggetts has your back. Er, stomach.

Things to do: Evening sunsets beat what's on your cable TV any day of the week! Do you know how dramatic it is for the clouds to slowly part from a pink-hued sky? Oh, and don't worry about nightlife because Club Jiggetts has got you covered.

The locals: The family dog, Lion, might pop in every so often rummage through the trash bin. And spiders visit the premises a lot. They're not harmless unless you get them before they get you:)

   Hotel Jiggetts was given 5 out of 5 stars by the Thisaintforeverybody Traveler's Association.
   So holler at yours truly if you're ready to book at this very fine establishment.
