Villa details-
This villa was designed for style, comfort, convenience, natural environmental consideration and privacy. The room temperature inside the villa stays comfortable day and night as it was specially designed to stay cool using earthen construction and an open-air design to catch the Caribbean breezes. All windows and doors are screened from outside elements. The roof constructed of natural thatch palm leaves, which reflect the sun rays also keeping the villa cool. You have to see the house to appreciate the quality textiles, artistic design, and elegant simplicity incorporated throughout this villa.
The ingenuity earthen construction of this villa consists of excavating dirt from the adjacent swimming pool to construct the earthen walls of the home, giving the villa the earthen adobe look.. Please see more details below…
____________________________________________________________

Ground Transportation-
As far as ground transportation, the highlight of our guests trip we are told is always the river rafting trip. It includes ground transportation to Or from our villa on to San Jose, day of rafting, breakfast and lunch. The cost is $99 pp.
I Just thought I'd mention this as renting a car is not always necessary for getting around our area, as I include 2 bikes with our villa rental if you would like to travel by this means. Also, taxis and the bus system is also easy and convenient..
Please let me know if I can help in booking this rafting trip.

Eco-Friendly Custom Villa-
The owner took great architectural consideration in using as much native natural materials as possible and still defining the comforts of the clients standards.
The foundation was constructed of gavel and the base walls of dirt. The dirt was excavated from the properties private swimming pool and filled in the earth bags. After filling the bags with gravel and dirt they are then laid one on top of the other to form the walls. The walls are then stuccoed to protect the bags from the elements and finished for a stylish unique earthen/ Adobe look. The earth bags materials are of recycled polypropylene bulk bags.
(Please see the pictures of the front of the house defining the detail of the adobe structure and look).

All the lighting fixtures and accessories were hand-made from natural materials such as wood and coconut shells, thus eliminating the use of synthetic products.
Custom low voltage LED lighting used for energy conservation.
