The host Steve gave...

The view from our porch was beautiful! Our villa overlooked the ocean and islands beyond. Each night at sunset, the roars of howling monkeys could be heard in the bushes, Initially, the sounds were very frightening, but after we were informed that they were monkeys rather than the giant monsters they sounded like, we looked forward to hearing them each...

We stayed a week at this beautiful villa. The views were stunning. The grounds are covered in natural flora and fauna. We stayed in the 1 bedroom villa. Each floor had its own AC unit.

We are very happy with our spontaneous decision to stay here. We had spent 2 weeks up in dusty Santa Teresa/Mal Pais and needed to breathe some fresh air and see some wildlife.

We also offer both one bedroom & 2 Bedroom villas with kitchen, lounge, TV, washer & dryer, private jacuzzi and sundeck. All villas are fully air conditioned and close to the pool.
