“awesome outdoor living”
Reviewed 30 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We just left this home a few days ago and we miss it. It's a simple little home with great outdoor space in which we spent most of our time. We cooked outside in the very equipped outdoor kitchen as well as rincing off the sea in the outdoor shower. Our teenage son even slept on the outside couch under the mosquito net. The location is perfect. We didn't leave the area for two days and were busy snorkeling at two step and wandering the beautiful place of refuge. We also rented kayaks in the little bay at the back door and spent the morning surrounded by dolphins! Shelley, the neighbor was great and brought us fresh mangos. I hope to go back someday!
The only thing we didn't love is the big Brown gazebo in the middle of the back yard. It has a tent, probably for mosquitos, inside and its just not very inviting. It blocks much of the porch view of the sea. Would be better moved off to the side. Not a big deal and others may appreciate it. A critter stold our loaf of bread and there were a few ants so don't be dumb like us and leave food out in the outdoor kitchen That's our only negative and we would go back in a second if we could.

“A house in a garden”
Reviewed 20 June 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Other people have said it all: the beauty of the place, the fact that it is in a "real" neighborhood, the truly hospitable nature of Rusty and Janice, the sound of the waves, the location... it was all wonderful!
For me the highlight was that Rusty has created a "house in a garden". In fact we only slept in the "real" house, the rest of the time we enjoyed being in the outside living room watching beautiful little geckos play and sing, in the outdoor kitchen preparing the delicious fish bought at a not too far supermarket, taking showers under the sky, playing cards in the gazebo and bird watching at the same time... There is a nice little park with access tot he water 3 minutes from the house.
It was like a child's dream come true.

“Very exceptional hosts and a truly lovely spot to stay.”
Reviewed 28 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We got married there and the hosts were really helpful. They helped us pick a location (Manini Beach, 2 blocks), talked to the park caretaker and Rusty even took pictures for us .
The location of the rental was perfect for us. Its quiet and out of the mainstream but still close enough to everything. The rental is clean, well cared for, well furnished, has a good view and for us the experience of cooking and living outside was unique in itself. We had a great stay, and would recommend this spot to everyone.
