Without an itinerary, reservation or plan, I was looking for a place to spend a few nights. Upon entering the property, I was warmly greeted and shown the accommodations. I need not look any further; paradise found! My single room bungalow was spacious, elegant and luxurious. I was delighted with the thoughtful, eco-conscious design and local materials used. From the king size bed (very comfortable by the way) in the center of the room, I opened the French doors and watched the surf. The bathroom had an enclosed, open to the sky shower/tub. It just kept getting better. Each morning, a platter of fresh fruits was left on my table. The beach was clean and sparsely populated, with beautiful waves where I watched the surfers play. This is also a great place for sunsets over the Pacific. The grounds and pool were well maintained and enough to keep you from exploring further. But within walking distance are some local restaurant/bars worth checking out. There was no down-side to this trip. I would have to return to the same location for future vacations, knowing a sure bet awaits.
