Snuggled into the lush tropical vegetation is this small bed and breakfast. I was thankful the directions given us were very good or we would never have found the place! We stayed in one of the Twins and we were there for almost a week. It rained almost the entire time we were there, but we had a great time!
Upon arrival, we got a small guest basket of wind-up flashlights (very useful at night and for caving) and maps. We borrowed the guest house's umbrellas several times. Breakfast in the mornings was ready whenever we got up (fairly early). We had a selection of fresh fruit, oatmeal, cereal and breads. We enjoyed chatting with the other guests in the morning.
We spent our days exploring the area but returned every evening. We watched moviews from the (free) video library and made dinner in the in-house kitchen area. Our girls played outside with the dogs. The owners work very hard (we rarely saw them relax!) and their work shows. They were even nice enough to let us use their laundry facilities one day!
One thing to note is that this place has a LOT of eco-friendly amenties. While I truly appreciate all their work and thought, it does change the experience a bit. If you want fiery hot showers then you're out of luck. The heating at night is a cozy, warm electric blanket instead of heating the whole house. None of this is a downside to me, but I do want people to know.
