This is our second trip to Patricia and Simon's property. Two years ago we stayed at one of their bungalows. This year, we rented the dream House Estrella. Patricia and Simon are lovely people, very knowledgeable and helpful. Patricia has a wonderful map that has everything you need to know. Estrella is exactly how it looks and sounds. Everyone's reviews are accurate. It truly is a very special spot, made by it's owners, who obviously have love for what they do. Simon is extremely talented and is able to show it off around the property. Patricia is like a monkey whisperer and able to talk them out of trees!! The house and the yard are picture perfect. Ylang Ylang, plumeria, cactus, banana trees, orange trees, hibiscus, mango trees...hummingbirds, monkeys (white faced and howler), coati, agouti, butterflies, racoons, wrens, cranes, geckos, lizards. My husband and I checked off so many of the animals on the sheets provided in the house. We spent a day playing with our camera on the property. Such cool pictures of flowers and trees and wildlife. They are truly blessed to live in such a special spot. We loved Estrella. We love the peace and quiet. The tranquility. We like to be away from the noise and the hustle. We love to rejuvenate here. We had the incredible experience of a night storm. The first one they have seen in 100 years during this time of year!! You basically get sun from six to six...most mornings our howler monkey alarm clock started at about 5:30. We had lazy mornings, drinking coffee, a nice breakfast, watching the wildlife, reading our books. There was no need to ever even leave Estrella...we were so content. The beach is so close, and often only pelicans and locals are there. The water is warm, but powerful. The best part is the outdoor shower afterwards though, with the sun shining down. I did not ever want to leave. But when we did, we walked everywhere...a solid 45 minutes to Cabuya or Montezuma. Cabuya has a bakery that is our favourite stop. We ate there a lot and enjoyed lots of sweets and goodies from there. There is also a little book store and a souvenir shop. The Super David had lots of grocery options. The Isle of Cabuya, their cemetery that you can only get to at low tide, is tranquil and eerie. Very beautiful. Montezuma is more touristy, a younger crowd, atvs, and much louder. El Sano Banano was our favourite spot to eat, with cool juices, sushi and tostados. In short, we loved everything about this area.
