New owners Martin and Natacha only arrived a week before our group but were wonderful warm hosts who did everything possible to make our family of 6 adults and one excited 6 year old welcome. The house is beautiful and bring a good camera with telephoto lens because you won’t need to leave to see an amazing variety of animals and bird life. The center of the property is a magnificent mango tree (hopefully a sloth will be there to greet you as he was for us) and climb to the roof in the morning to watch the resident iguanas warming in the sun. The beach is a very short walk away and you can walk 3 km to the Tree of Life wildlife sanctuary for their daily tour. The new owners are working hard to upgrade internet and small things around the house but the pool is beautiful at night and the flowers on the grounds are beautiful. We were fortunate to have arranged several nights of catered meals from Rahel and Esteban at Aroma Cafe and we highly recommend them for a unique experience. A car is highly recommended if you plan to stay for more than a few days since the “supermarket” is a 20 minute drive away and the local store in Cahuita is pricey. There are numerous local tours available and the new owners are working hard to make sure guests have a great experience. Note that the stairs can be challenging for those with limited mobility and bare feet are a must, as well as using the handrails. Pura Vida!
