We stayed one night at Pax, only about 20 minutes from the airport. It is a guesthouse once associated with the adjacent Mount St Benedict Monastery, and thus is on a steep hillside overlooking the main valley. It has about 20 rooms, most with private baths but the upstairs rooms have only a sink with bathrooms just a few steps away. My room was small but adequate; good bed, wardrobe, sink, small table and a superb view out the large windows. It serves three meals, not just breakfast. Dinner is served outdoors on a really nice verandah, other meals in an adjacent dining room. Food was quite good.
For visiting birders, this is an excellent choice for first and last days near the airport. We saw and heard several birds which we missed on our nine day guided birding tour. The verandah has hummingbird feeders, there is a view over a wooded valley, and the proprietor is a good birder. There is a trail which can be taken through the woods, and one can walk around the various levels around the monastery.
