Walter owns and runs the place. This is not for everyone. It is simple, rustic, but also the place to relax for an afternoon of reading a book, taking a swim (the pool is incredible), sipping cocktails, smelling the flowers. If you are going on an Amazon trip or to one of the lodges, this place is a perfect place to go to stay overnight and have the tour operator pick you up in the morning. Food is all prepared in their outside kitchen and is really good. They don't have a set menu, they will ask you what you would like to have prepared. He also has a 5 story tree house next to the pool
