About Adam Santiago

I enjoy travel....I have traveled around the world to places such as Amsterdam, Berlin, Prauge, Paris, and Barcelona. I enjoy hosting and take joy in giving guest the opportunity to stay in my vacation rentals. My vacation rentals have artifacts that I have brought back from my travels. I feel that when I open my home to guest I open a connection to humanity and inspire love and peace.

My husband and I loved the cabin, there was lots of natural light and wonderful outdoor seating on the deck. The location is perfect, close to trails and town. Adam is a great host, quick communication and very caring. I highly recommend this lovely cabin!

Quiet, peaceful and thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Dulce Vita - the name is perfect for what you experience while here. We relaxed, shopped, walked in the woods, visited with friends who live locally and did I mention relaxed😍?. The cabin is rustic and perfect for us - our dog Cody was welcomed and he seemed to understand the relaxing part😄?.

Cannot thank Adam enough - - in our hearts and minds this was every bit a 5 star stay❤️ My husband and I celebrated our 34th anniversary and are so pleased that we chose Dulce Vita to celebrate our special weekend.

Relaxing, casual casita

  • 5 of 5

Dulce Vita is a vintage 1955 cabin, small and cozy. The scent of pines is everywhere. There are thoughtful touches, for instance, flashlights by the beds. Whimsical touches too: the bathroom has a claw-foot tub. The kitchen was minimalist, but workable. The wrap-around deck was a delight--we migrated from sitting area to sitting area, depending on the sun. The hosts, Adam and Elena, are lovely. There was an initial problem with the wireless internet, but Adam was quick to respond and stayed in touch until it was solved.

The location is convenient. With equal ease, we could walk down the hill into town, or up to a trailhead.

This 1955 cabin has been lovingly restored and is comfortable and nurturing. A mountain stay near to town and Humber trailheads. Wonderful stay and best host Adam.

We will surely return and highly recommend.
