I would really like to see is some of our local travellers coming to stay with these ladies because the experience is unlike anything.Christine de Silva, AirBnB Property Manager at ETA Home
De Silva admits that there are still negative perceptions about township safety which makes a lot of people a bit skeptical about visiting these places.
It is quite difficult to pass through these perceptions and change people's minds about townships .... but the ladies looks after you so well. Safety is absolute key for them when they have anyone staying with them.Christine de Silva, AirBnB Property Manager at ETA Home
