Our host, Franz, couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. Our house was casual but stunning and comfortable - very open. No bugs but adorable monkeys in the trees. Our 16 yo boys surfed every morning at 6 with Franz and every afternoon til they dropped. They had a lot of freedom and were always safe. Franz took us shopping when we first arrived so that we could fill our refrigerator and pointed us in the right direction for all our other needs. Several great restaurants nearby for every budget. If you like casual and easy going but clean and stylish and comfortable at the same time - this is the place for you.
