Other Things to Note
This is a great place to unplug from city life and relax. Not a lot of external stimuli, if you have a book or projects to keep you busy, that's ideal, as the nights are very quiet. The pace is relaxed, and schedules are just guidelines here. Here people plan their days around the moon and the tide... also please note that you are entering a natural environment, and may encounter wild birds, iguanas, geckos, crabs, etc that live around the sometimes enter the house. We are sharing the same environment as our wild neighbors, and don't be surprised if you see/hear them around the house. None of them are dangerous and if you are a serious birdwatcher, you will some fun!
