This place is magical! My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to get to stay with Mariah at the Garden Houses for a month! First of all, Mariah is amazing. She treats you like family and is very helpful when it comes to the area. She directed us to great restaurants and places to see. The house is in a great location right next to the grocery store, making food runs super easy and convenient. The beach is just a short walk down the road including a surfing beach and a nice private beach to watch the sunset. The house itself was well equipped with everything we needed and cleaned on a weekly basis. Our favorite part of the houses were the patio areas with the hammocks settled in the shade and surrounded by fruit trees. Mariah has a large variety of fruit trees on the property including mangos, papayas, plantains, and lemons. We where able to pick bushels of plantains and eat them during our stay and make lemonade. At the houses, we were also able to see a ton of wildlife right from our windows. We saw monkeys, iguanas, tropical birds, bats, and more right from the property. What we loved most about this property was that it felt like home and we were able to relax the entire time. Mariah and Peaches the guard cat are loving and welcoming to all and I highly recommend a stay at the Garden Houses. We will hopefully be staying with Mariah again next year!
