Interaction with guests
We have many family and friends helping us to make your stay a memorable one. They clean the homes before you arrive, cook meals when requested, and truly help create the “culture” of your home when you need something. Adam and I (Cathy) are NOT usually in town, but we’d love meeting and spending time with you when we visit if you'd like. We will be using a small apartment under the home when we visit but we do not get in anyone's way. When we are on site, we will be helping the cleaners with the home and the grounds keeper also. We are always a text or call away!

About the neighbourhood
Our neighborhood is just that; A community of people coming together looking out for one another, and very open to welcoming travelers from all around the world. Many of the locals that you’ll meet in this this area don’t travel much, so it is just as exciting for them to meet you as it is for you to meet them. Everyone I know is very giving, loving, genuine and humble, which is one of the many things that makes you fall in love with our beautiful island. I grew up in these lovely mountains with these amazing people, and It’s an honor and a privilege for us to share this part of the Island with you.
Getting around
You will need to rent a car as there is no public transit up in the mountains. Once you book with us, Katryel sends you a welcome letter w/ written directions, GPS coordinates and extras. The extras is a long list of many things to do in and around the area including local spots to enjoy. All of the roads are paved so any car is fine. Since Hurricane Maria, you have to be a bit more careful going up the mountain from the main town. Its a short 12 minute drive and the roads are accessible.
