Our acre has mature fruit trees including oranges, avocados, coconuts, bananas, and exotics like jaboticaba and acerola. We share fruit with all our guests, whatever is in season. Delightful flowering plants like night blooming jasmine and mock orange send their heavenly scents into the air. Our gardens and land is all clothing optional.
