It is a nice property in a beautiful natural area. It is out of town, so you do need a taxi every time you go shopping or eating out. You can use a bike, but biking close to town was a little too dangerous for us.
We stayed a full month and had a good time. Ron was not as helpful to us as he seemed to other people.
WiFi was not working for several weeks. No air conditioning was no problem. It was not that hot. If living area would have been screened it would be good since there are lots of bugs and sitting outside was not always pleasant.
Swimming or beach close by was very marginal. No sandy beach for swimming close by.
Yes, we did have some monkeys visiting for several days.
