With the emphasis of comfort and the serenity of the surrounding nature you can feel “home away home” aura. Here the forested hills and lush foliage provide the perfect spot for bird watching. The scream of wild parrots and Cocricos is the alarm for the dawn to break in. The sweet taste of mangoes, bananas and papayas fresh from a tree is a delight for all the senses.

If you want to use a bicycle, then please be aware that the streets are narrow and the hills are steep, so you need to be an accomplished rider.
There are a few small shops to purchase food items and one vegetable shop in the village, but a wider range of goods are available in the supermarkets on the road to Scarborough or Crown Point area. There are also a few bars (rum shops as they are called locally) and a very small fast food place

Very comfortable with amazing artistic interior design. I stayed for a full two weeks with my car and the studio apartment and to be honest I still miss it! Tiina and Lion were amazing, they would accommodate any queries and I am sure would even take you out if you were interested. Whatever fruit season it is I'm sure you will get to experience it whether its a breakfast smoothie or fresh fruit picked that morning. No complaints and the kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need to cook which is always surprising but a complete plus! Even though it was a village in the country feel, Tiina and Lion are every much well known in the community and knowing that I felt very safe and didn't have any problems or hassle. I recommend it fully.
