Firstly, I have to tell you that I fell in love with Monica and Mario, the owners. Mario had designed the entire place and planted every tree and flowering plant himself. It's a wonderful mixture of wild tropics with an intentional landscape, offering lots of shade from the afternoon sun.
When I arrived, Monica knew my name and was waiting to get me settled into my little bungalow.
The place is incredibly clean! I felt safe and there are heavy wooden doors with a double lock to keep all your belongings safe while you head to the beach.
I couldn't recommend this place enough!! It's incredibly affordable, walking distance to the beach and restaurants a few steps away (including a gelato and espresso cafe next door!)
