Where in the world do I begin? In a word, WOW! This beautiful property is in the Cloud Forest/rainforest and is a piece of Heaven on Earth, a true Eden, if you will. Jenn warmly greeted my boyfriend and me upon arrival and immediataly made us feel welcome in her home. We arrived in time for 5 PM Tea and enjoyed a glass of wine and tasty snacks (prepared in the well-appointed kitchen right there!) as we watched the sun go down with the other guests, everyone nicely relaxed and telling of their adventures of the day. There are adventures aplenty to be had in the area and Jenn and her staff are happy to arrange for them for you. We had the pleasure of having Olman as our guide on a rainforest walk the next morning and the next night as well. He is VERY knowledgeable and taught us much while constantly searching for new things for us to see and learn about. We stayed in the main house, the newly opened Cascade room which had the gardens, hummingbird feeders, and a coy pond right outside the door. The room was immaculately cleaned every day and truly felt like home. We looked at all of the treehouses before we left and it is difficult to decide which one we'll stay in when we return!! Each is private, beautiful,and thoughtfully designed with beautiful views of the trees. Each day starts with a delicious breakfast, cooked to order, in the main house which overlooks the rainforest. You start with a lovely plate of fresh fruit, banana bread (the best I've ever had!) and a wonderful marmalade which just makes you melt in your seat. Then, after a hearty breakfast, off you go on your adventures for the day. We did ziplining the second and third days- SUCH FUN!! It's also worth mentioning she has 4 dogs and 3 cats which freely roam the property, all of whom are very friendly. Jenn built this place with a vision in mind and she has achieved this in a most exceptional way- peace, a homelike feel in the rainforest, and service well above and beyond expectations. She hand-picked her staff to help her make every guest's experience the best possible. Jenn has truly hit a home run here and we are already making plans to return. I actually found it difficult to leave... I can't wait for us to come back to this little piece of paradise! Brava, Jenn, brava!!!
