Description
The Space

This location is for the traveler who tires of tourist locations and of having to share a beach with people. This beach has a handful of tasetful houses with only four families residing here full time. One can always find interesting shells and rocks and the ocean is always warm. Locals are friendly and helpful and readily available to hire for cleaning or clothes washing. One will always hear the ocean due to the flow of air through the house. At night, one hears the crickets and the stars are amazing! You can watch them from your bed and hear the ocean through the huge picture window. It is recommended to have a jeep or rugged vehicle for access but it can be managed also with a motorcycle or without a vehicle if you are willing to do some walking and paying for rides. The house sleeps 6 and a large tent, additional outdoor shower and toilet available also available for larger groups.

Guest Access

The entire house is yours to enjoy when you rent it. The road is rough and if you have a vehicle, it is best to have a truck and/or four wheel drive. A motorcycle does well on the road as well. It is possible to catch rides and hire rides as well as use a combination of walking and public transport.

Interaction with Guests

The property hosts, Matt and Rachel, will either meet you when you arrive and if necessary send someone to pick you up at your location if need be for a fee. They live a few house down the beach where they manage a larger beachfront property with pool. They provide support services at their location such as laundry, internet and massage. When the house they manage is not completely booked by one family or group, they can also offer meals and drinks along with pool access.

The Neighborhood

There are four full time neighbors. However, there are plenty of crabs, birds, an occasional iguana, and depending on the time of the year, turtles that have been known to lay their eggs in the yard. There is a turtle sanctuary in the sid yard of the house that incubates egge from The second week of September to the first week of January. This year 18,000 eggs were incubated including loggerhead and latherback turtle eggs. Horses can be rented to ride on the beachfront for a reasonable fee. Locals are friendly and helpful and can provide various services from washing clothes, babysitting, cleaning house, bringing fresh fish and filleting it for you. The local Canadian hosts, Rachel and Matt, are a fun and lovely couple. They are super gracious hosts and will make sure your time at the eco-casita is rewarding and relaxing.

Getting Around

You can walk 3 kilometers along the beach to catch the local bus or hitch or pay for a ride to the busstop. Alternatively, you can pay for or catch a lift to town. It is common practice with the locals to catch a ride and most every driver with space will offer a ride free of charge. It is common courtesy in the area. Also, Rachel and Matt can set you up with local private transportation.

Other Things to Note

Tenants who rents monthly pays for water weekly as it is brought in from a well in a truck to fill tanks. It cost approximately $10 to $15 per person per week depending on conservation practices. You may purchase 5 gallon jugs of water from the local hosts and they will bring it to your house and set it up for you. Otherwise, you can buy drinking water from the grocery store. For weekly or daily rentals the host pays for water up to 4 people. Gas for the oven is the tenant's responsibility when staying for a month or longer to refill when empty. Also, when the set amount of internet time per month (3 Gigs) runs out, the tenant pays for any additional time. Reminder that internet is unreliable and sporadic so you may prefer to use the internet down the beach at Rachel and Matt's place. Also, the ocean is best suited for surfers and body or boogie board surfers. For swimmers, it is important to note ocean conditions before swimming out. If the waves are high and the current feels strong, it's best to take a quick dip in the shallow water near shore. The current tends to be strongest when the tide is coming in. If you ever do get caught in a current, swim parallel to the shore until the current abates and then swim in.

About Truda & Joseph
Visit Profile
Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
