We were so excited to come here. After seeing all the nice pictures and reading the great reviews, we were so ready for our vacation. In advance we exchanged several emails with Siobhan and Hugues and received very detailed and helpful information regarding the house and surroundings. So we thought we are well prepared what to expect but when we arrived even our 2 teenaged kids gaped with their mouths open. What a beautiful place! Gina, the property manager was greeting us with a very warm welcome and showed us around answering every question and giving tips where to eat locally. We loved the layout of the house; it feels like home being away from home. Everything you might need is provided; it is clean, cozy, and comfortable.
We had breakfast on the patio every morning during our 8 day stay; often we stayed half of the day and enjoyed the great pool watching wildlife from the early morning to dusk. There are so many different species of birds to find. We saw up to 6 toucans in the papaya tree; those are very funny creatures. We had at least 2 coatis visiting the property regularly; they just walked by, mainly ignoring us. We saw and more often heard howler monkeys in the trees.
We visited different places: the Saturday market, little stores and restaurants in Montezuma; Cabuya- which has some nice little restaurants and great café and you can by fresh local fish; Playa Santa Teresa, Playa Hermosa, Cobano. We all enjoyed zip lining and jumping the waterfall. We went on a day snorkeling trip and also visited Reserva Natural Cabo Blanco. There are so many things to see and to do but we always came back fairly soon to enjoy the pool and relaxing patio again. We are very thankful getting such an opportunity for a wonderful family vacation. Everyone had an amazing time and we would love to comeback sooner than later! Thank you!
