This small gem of a house is situated on a plateau with amazing views of mountains, valleys and ocean, with a great view of the sunset every night. There is a bedroom with views of the rain forest, a living area with a kitchen section, and a large covered patio, with fans and lights. This is where you will spend your time, contemplating the view, and the wild-life.
There is an outside cooking area, with fridge, which keeps the house cool, although at 1,400 ft., is is often 5 degrees cooler than down on the beach. There is always a breeze and we have never felt the need for air-conditioning.
There is only one other house visible across the valley, and although remote, the only access road is gated, with a guard on at night.
It is a 15 minute drive down to the main road, where there are stores, and restaurants, ranging from el cheapo to gourmet.
The community is gated, with a guard on every night. The property has a electrically operated gate. although its remoreness guarantees security.
This is a combination of isolation and privacy, yet with access to facilities.
The bedroom has two single beds which can be moved together to make a king size bed.
