“Stylish Eco Lodge experience near magnificent beaches”

The house is very big and it's a true experience to stay there! The house is build around a cave and the bathroom is truly spectacular (it made me think of the luxurious cave hotel in Matera in Southern Italy). The bedrooms have mosquito nets and you hear the soothing sounds of nature when you are lying in bed. The kitchen is fully equipped, so you have everything if you want to eat in or prepare a mail. The terrace outside is covered with the traditional roof which made it perfect to sit on the terrace when it is rather hot outside or to protect you from the occasional rain shower. At the end of the street there is a fantastic wine bar and lots of restaurants. A few minutes walking takes you to magnificent beaches and we even saw whales!!

“Magic!!! The perfect spot for a James Bond movie!”

I've been three times to the house: in april 2007, april 2008 and in march 2012.

In the beginning the house was not even finished. The terrace didn't even had a thatched roof... and everything was at that time so basic.. but,.. it was a magical experience. It's a natural house, built to a rock - with a cave (the bathroom !) in side. I never saw this in my life. A unique designed house, you can see James Bond coming out of the Cave into the living room any moment ;-) .

In the mean time, Las Galeras has changed a bit, but it has still all of his charm.
The house changed too. The terrace on the ground level is superb: very spacious, and you open all the doors, and you see how the inner livin room and the outer terrace are becoming one.

You stay in a lovely and cosy green residential part of the village, at a perfect location. You are surrounded by astonishing tropical nature, you hear thousands of crickets and see a breathtaking sky with so many stars at night (there is a rooftop terrace on the rock !!!).
The area is secure and its in very short walking distance to the center of the village and to Las Galeras beach as well to Playita! Playita is my favourite.

The house is very spacious but also very basic: there is a big but basic kitchen and a fridge. There is no television, no wifi, no swimming pool ...(but now you can have easily wifi with a stick!)
the house is a warm combination of concrete and wood. There are two toilets, the big La Cueva bathroom, and an outside shower.

this is a house to unwind from busy city life!!
a must go if you like the combination of a simple but sublime nature house in one of the most beautiful places on earth!
