This is a million dollar property for small change. When you walk through the gates for the first time - and each time thereafter, you are transported to private lush jungle enclave. The cabin (Colirbi) is perched on the edge of the bluff so you get the sense that you are on a ship's bow. It is built entirely out of re-purposed reclaimed materials. I figured correctly that the century old breezeway doors were the seeds for the design of Colibri. The mosaic tiles, paint, window treatments, fixtures et al give depth beauty and texture to your home away from home. The size was perfect for 2 adults, but could easily accommodate one more person. The outdoor living areas double the footprint.
As others have mentioned, upon arrival, Peter gave us a little time to peek around and then came over to explain some details of the cabin, answer questions and then offered to give us a ride back to town. This was a very meaningful gesture that allowed us to acclimate to his space and the village.
We rented a 2x4 quad for the duration of our stay. We never wished for vehicle. We brought a soft sided cooler from home that was our day-bag. Others here have been alarmed by the road to the Heights. We did not find it challenging at all.
Our trip took place over the first week of September. It rained each day or night. And the rain was always perfect and generally brief. After one particularly long overnight rain, the waterfalls became too muddy to enjoy and subsequently the ocean became too murky for good snorkeling. Our to-do list was never completed because there is SO MUCH to do in this area. Our plans would change with the wind. Lots of magic happened each day.
We both had the sense that we had found THE perfect spot in Montezuma area to call home away from home. We would be lucky to return and still find this place available to us. Very Very expensive homes have been built in this area and this little piece of unique and personal paradise seems fleeting.
