All of the good things previously written apply for us as well. This was a magical little place. The first night we stayed in the Orchid Loft because both casitas were booked. One entire wall is wide open to the night air, the night sounds and the enormous view of Concepcion Volcano and its cap of clouds. The bed is beautifully done with a combination canopy/mosquito netting that Sheri made with lovely indian cotton. The ambience is really indescribable as you sit side by side with your honey, in twin rocking chairs, looking out over the Ometepe forest and mountains. The next night we moved to one of the little casitas for 2 nights. It too was charmingly done and very private. It is amazing what Sheri and Cristiano have created here--they are tremendously imaginative and hard-working. I felt like a kid in a fairy tale here and that is a very nice feling.
