We had the pleasure of staying here for 3 days in Nov 2011. The house is very spacious and absolutely beautiful. Since it is newly built, it has all the modern amenities you would need but wouldnt expect for being in the middle of the jungle and surfers paradise. Olman and Lady, the caretakers, were fantastic and the owner goes beyond the call of duty to make your trip remarkable. Highly highly recommended.

Great from start to finish! The personal service and booking experience was excellent. Owners helped and guided us through the oddities of travel to the jungle. They ensured we were prepared so that the start of our adventure was wonderful.
The house was immaculate and decorated with flowers from the gorgeous gardens surrounding the house and had every ammenity we needed (bbq,freezer,wine glasses,etc). We could of stayed on the deck all day enjoying the macaws, monkeys, and waves. The property has a great surf break in its backyard.
You can arrange for a cook to come prepare meals, which we did for several dinners, which was delicious and very affordable. The beds are comfortable and we all slept great to the crashing waves and loved hearing the monkey chatter. We all felt so at home and relaxed - you can go on tours - zip lines, tree top adventures - but we didn't feel the need to - we enjoyed a daily hike, surf, and relaxing in the pool! We plan on booking this house again.
