The SpaceA step up from camping in the rain forest on a private beach, an all wood & handmade tile open accommodation.
The main house is a natural Palm roof. It has one small bedroom upstairs with a queen size bed. There are no seeum/mosquito nets on each bed. All beds our air mattresses and are off the ground. All linens are good linens.
We use air mattresses to ensure nothing gets moldy from humidity/jungle and everything is very clean.
Two additional queen size or single beds can be set up on the main floor of the main beach house. These extra beds take up the floor space.
There is a small cabin at the other end of the property by the caretakers house that can sleep one person, or a couple. This cabin has its own bathroom.
Next to the main beach house is a "monkey bar", where white faced monkeys come down to eat bananas. This is easily seen from the main house.
The entire covert is covered in tropical plants, and in the summer there are Hammocks throughout the property. Guest AccessAccessible by boat only.
