We stay for a week, and spent the last 4 days alone in the area, out of the Filippino couple who was in charge of cleaning and cooking at Porter's. It is a bit far away from the village, but this is the best part of the story! You must rent a golf cart- the only motorized possibility- to move... More

There are two buildings, each with two rooms. Our room had a comfortable bed, bathroom with shower, and basic kitchen with refrigerator, cooktop and convection oven. The rooms are designed to catch the ocean breezes (no AC). We loved breakfast on the big porch facing the ocean. Don’t be surprised if roaming donkeys come by looking for a handout. The... More

“We stayed in Crusoe #2 and I am sure that the others were just as nice.”

“Crusoe #2 is furthest away. We stayed in Shipwreck #1, perfect and quiet but less private than Crusoe #1 and 2.”
 of 5 bubbles mlsearles, Feb 5, 2016 | Read review
“Castaway is two houses with two units in each house. We lived in the most easterly one (Crusoe2) and that means a bit more shade from the pines. It also means more wind but that is usually good, because it is the wind that is the natural AC and it works very good.”

“We stayed on both sides of the cottage. The last cottage is great for the cross breeze from the tradewinds. All rooms are great. Although there isn't air conditioning, it wasn't necessary. There is a constant breeze coming through.”
