About Trey Derrick
I'm a surfer/traveler who stumbled upon Mal Pais and Santa Teresa in 1993 and never could quite let go. I made the Manzanillo/Playa Hermosa area my home in 2001 and have never looked back - great waves, incredible natural setting, and interesting people - I've found my paradise. I've been fortunate to have lived all over the US, travel the roads with rock bands, drive through Central America by Jeep, live in Europe and Japan - all the while surfing - but I have been more fortunate to have had total strangers open their homes, hearts, family and cultures to me and show me things I could have never learned on my own. I'll never be able to thank them for their kindness and teachings, but I can repay them by passing what I can on to others. There's nothing I enjoy more than sharing what I've found here in this small, but unique corner of the world.
Trey Derrick purchased this Bungalow in 2001
Why Trey Derrick chose Cóbano
I chose Manzanillo because it is far enough away from the action and the congestion of Santa Teresa, but close enough to hop in the car or on a 4-wheeler and have access to anything and everything one could want - and most importantly, the private and pristine beaches and the outstanding surfing and fishing Manzanillo has to offer!
What makes this Bungalow unique
The bungalows are surrounded by a plethora of indigenous trees, and the pool has a very old endangered Gavilan tree on the ocean side. The entire property is 3 acres and is connected by walking trails with ocean views from almost every corner of the property. The property has been reforested and planted which has brought back the birds, butterflies and animals to the property. You can sit anywhere on the property and hear the waves crashing below down at Punta Pochote.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
This hidden little gem is located in quiet area with endless private beaches. Wake up early to watch the monkeys every morning and have coffee by the pool! Rooms are very nice and beds are comfortable. Hosts are great and very helpful. I would recommend having a rental car or ATV if staying in the area as its away from restaurants and night life and there is lots of touring you can do with a vehicle. I will be back!
Great place to get recharged
Trey is a great host, lives on site and is there to help if needed. He has numerous units at his place you can rent. Ours was pretty basic, one room and a bathroom. The bed was great, quiet evenings, terrific view, air conditioner was excellent, the pool is awesome. The beach is beautiful with few others there. Only downside is you really need some wheels. We rented a quad and that is what I would recommend. Also the kitchen is very basic but his place worked for us. We would recommend staying with Trey.
4 days in paradise!!
We had a truly wonderful low key vacation. Trey was truly a very knowledgeable and gracious host. The grounds were beautiful and had great views. Lots to do!! Great beaches in the area. Loved everything about our stay. My wife and I are looking forward to our next stay there
Incredible vacation spot! Pura Vida :) Highly recommended
My 5 year old daughter and I arrived with a group of 18 with the expectation of relaxing for a week...and our expectations were definitely exceeded at Senderos de Paz.
Bungalow Dos had everything we needed for our stay and kept "life simple". It was simply perfect for us!! We had the chance to hear/watch/observe the monkeys every day, play & chase hummingbirds, crabs, iguanas, etc, explore the gorgeous trees & flowers AND had our very own private pool within steps of our front door!
Trey was amazing!!..He helped coordinate our shuttle service, 4 wheel rentals for the week, our zip line excursion and even went out of his way to ensure our catered dinner was delivered during a thunderstorm one evening...which, in my opinion, is above and beyond :) and VERY much appreciated.
The grounds were clean and very well taken care of. The options were endless depending on what may be of interest.
Reflecting on the week we had at Senderos de Paz, I will say this. My expectations were FAR exceeded. My beautiful, sometimes shy, and spirited daughter conquered a few fears, had SEVERAL new experiences (paddle-boarding, zip lining, riding 4 wheelers in a beautiful country, waking up to monkeys, etc) and I felt relaxed, at peace and LOVED the adventures we had together.
The new addition of the yoga "room" was absolutely gorgeous and served as both a relaxing & entertaining element of the property.
As for Bungalow Dos, it would be perfect for anyone (or two) when looking for a place to "hang their hat" for a while :)
Side note: Winston is the coolest dog EVER!! Hug him, pet him, give him some love & he will definitely return it! Pura Vida!!
Right next to the property is one of our newest projects, Qué Mae Brewing Company, where we rotate 8 kinds of craft beer brewed on-site. The brewery has ocean and sunset views, a variety of seating areas and a food menu. You can relax with tasty beverages, good food and watch the sunsets, ocean and animals pass by in the trees. Pura vida!
