Property description

IMPORTANT UPDATE... effective April 12, 2016 -- The road to our property has been re-graded and can handle smaller vehicles. This is good news for those renting compact and economy vehicles.

As you enter our property, you are immediately overcome with a sense of tranquility that words cannot describe. Further along, you are swept away into a world of beautiful flora, fauna and wildlife.

Our Blue Butterfly Cottage is perfect for one or two persons that appreciate a clean, cozy and comfortable abode. Ideal for the independent traveler that enjoys privacy.

The front veranda is great for early morning conversations with the local monkeys, hummingbirds and toucans. With a built-in table, you can commune with nature while sipping your favorite morning, afternoon or evening beverage.

The cottage has a sleeping loft with a full size bed, The living area has a full size sleep sofa, the kitchen is fully equipped with a gas oven/stove, full size refrigerator, double sink, tankless gas hot water heater, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, dishes and utensils. There is a small living area with a 22' flat screen TV with a built-in DVD player --- TV for movies only/ No standard, cable or satellite TV. There is a small eat-in area off the living area and there is a full bath with a large shower.

Please note: If you are planning to rent a vehicle, make sure it has high clearance. 4X4 is not really necessary but something with high clearance is... something like a mini-SUV or larger. We strongly recommend something larger than a compact or economy car. Although the roads are safe, they can be bumpy especially after rainy season and the road to our property is not paved.
