For four decades Isabel Jordan lived and loved in this stunning location. She was spry, vital, gracious and tons of fun. Izamamma had a Big Life because she cared for others as much or more than she cared for herself. She lived 81 years, all juice and sparkle. She had mastered the sowing/reaping circle and brought out the best in people. Isabel had a high capacity for being present, and made friends with most of her guests. A mutual admiration society flourished in her presence.
In January 2009 Isabel made a sudden and shocking celestial transfer. Waves of grief washed over her very large circle. A rocky-to-impossible transition began. Somehow, somehow, with dogged persistence and a few miracles, the workers are still working, and we survive. Isabel’s spiritual and physical legacy is huge. We are making good progress converting rustic to rustic elegance, and icing the cake on this tropical Eden.

We love the open-air private rooms situated along the stone path carved from the steep hillside; the lush tropical plantings, canyon view, small beach and all that is eco-friendly.
