This home is in a relaxing area away from the tourist areas-what we wanted-and close to the beach. It is nicely appointed, with attractive furnishings. It is also centrally located, so we were able to make day trips to anywhere on the island.
Unfortunately, the Zen Treehouse was extremely hot--the "Greener" option does not work--very uncomfortable for sleeping, let alone during the day when the sun is beating in. As we all know, hot air rises, and so this room was not cool at all. Can't imagine what the other 2 rentals are like, since this was billed as the coolest.
The induction cooktop is only a 1 burner portable unit--so cooking is not really an option. We also found the time limitation on doing laundry an inconvenience.
On the positive side, our host, Dave (Herlinda's substitute), was very nice and accommodating.
We found him to be a wealth of information. There are beach chairs, snorkle gear, and beach towels available for your use.
All things considered, we would not return here just because our idea of a vacation includes being comfortable.
