Eggs Benedict one morning, shrimp omelette the next. Bar (she keeps a tab and settles up when you leave) and pool table to relax, hammocks to REALLY relax. Gym, sauna, splash pool/creek, and massages available if you REALLY REALLY want to relax. Omega Tours up the road, a three minute stroll if you want adventure. Hiking available in grounds. River across the street. You can make this as simple or as heart-pumping as you desire, and Karen is the maestro.
Karen, an expat from Canada, has a penchant for building with river rocks and concrete. She told us she could build anything with concrete. I believe her. The entire house and grounds were designed by her, built by locals with local stone, and is only one example of many on that hillside of her gorgeous work and seemingly LIMITLESS energy and creativity.
Our room, located on the backside of the house, was beautiful. Large, comfy bed, with fresh (a revelation to have crisp sheets in a country that never cools off and never loses its humidity) sheets, custom bathroom with a lovely stone shower, and great dark wood furniture. Accessorize with a cat, there are a few, if you wish, or shut your door if you don't. Accessorize with a dog, too, in Turbo (sweet Rott) or Sassy (lazy Husky).
Laundry was no problem, it was done the same day and returned to us, folded. Karen uses as many eco-friendly options as are available to her; don't hesitate to ask.
Both my husband and I wanted to stay longer, but we headed back to Roatan after two nights with Karen and Alex. If you want a bit of a splurge, THIS is the place to do it.

The house is built entirely out of river rock which keeps the rooms a fantastic cool temp (allowing us all to live comfortably without using air conditioning).
