This was my second stay at this superbly designed house and garden. Among the many details i love is how the "public area" (pool, dining areas, kitchen, lounge/living spaces) are in the open air. Too often, one escapes winter to the tropics and then spends a lot of time in overly cold air conditioning. Much of the open air, public areas are covered, giving welcome shade (and cooling breezes) on warm sunny days. Ample sunny areas are available for sunning, as well. These open areas allow one to enjoy the best of the tropics, but not being too warm. The large, exquisitely furnished bedrooms (each with an full ocean view) are air conditioned, allowing for cool sleep.
My group loves to cook and the large kitchen is amply supplied for discriminating cooks. The nearby grill is a dream to use. One night, we hired one of the local, recommended caterers to cook for us. The meal was delicious, memorable in the best of ways, and perfectly served.
As luxurious as the house is, it is close to beautiful, nearly empty beaches and amazing national parks for hiking.
We all hated to leave this remarkable place.
