A friend and I came to do a few days of windsurfing, and we ended up staying for 10. Great food, great beer, great rooms, and most notably, great hosts! JP, Jules, and Mason took care of us like family.
We stayed in one of the spacious apartment suites, with a beautiful lake view from our patio. We windsurfed with Tom, who runs a fantastic shop just down the road (much more reasonably priced than Tico Wind and better for beginners).
What an awesome place! We will certainly be back.
