Interaction with Guests
We are available to show the guests around and for questions and maintenance. We can also help with area advice (restaurants, hikes, bus schedules) and can book activities such as zip lining, snorkeling, horseback riding, ATV and car rentals, fishing tours and more. Guests can also borrow movies from our large DVD library!
The village is surrounded by nature, wildlife (beautiful birds, monkeys, armadillos, iguanas, koatis and more) and everything is within an easy walk, even though the retreat is set back a few hundred meters and feels private. There are great little restaurants, pizza, bakery, markets, fresh fish from the fishermen, the national park, the snorkeling island, local fishermen take you on tours, ocean kayaks and more! A little bus goes from Cabuya to Montezuma several times daily as well!
Local buses are readily available as are cabs. After booking, we can give you travel tips to get to us as well!
Pets are possible, please ask so that we can go over details. We ask for guests not to smoke inside the house, only outside on terraces please.
We had a lovely, fun and relaxing stay at Jeff and Kathy's amazing property! The location was perfect- really close to some great places to eat (some of our favorite meals on our trip were in Cabuya) and local markets to pick up anything we needed. We enjoyed venturing off on our adventures (waterfalls, ocean swimming/tide pooling, hikes, visit to Montezuma , etc..) and were so pleased to return to our home base. The pool, amazing gardens, bird watching, starfruit picked fresh off their trees and lovely house were more than we expected. Our kids (ages 6 and 11) really loved it and were made to feel very welcome. We enjoyed all the privacy we wanted but when we craved social interaction all we had to do was leave our house and go to the pool! We met some great people. If we needed anything or had any questions our hosts were easy to find and very kind. Thanks for hosting us and we long to return again soon!
Jeff has a wonderful place in Cabuya! Jeff is also very easy-going and was completely ok with us and our four children making such a chaos and noise that four small children tend to do. It was also very clean and well equipped. I can fully reccommend this place. But only if you have your own vehicle. The roads to everything are just to far by foot in the tropical heat...
