The house is located in quiet neighbourhood, and the road it's located on is not a connecting road, so your tranquility will not be disturbed. Neighbours at both sides, while the back of the house faces a small hill, from where occasionally you might see a herd of goats travel by, or an iguana drop in for a visit. Early morning and late afternoon there will be a gaggle of parrots flying over, that's about the most ruckuss you will have to endure from the wildlife.
I strongly recommend guests to arrange for a rental car, which you can park on the premises.
If you're the adventerous type who will be renting a bike, I must warn you that our roads are not specifically designed to accomodate bycicles, although there is work being done about the infrastructure. In any case, when you're away not using your bikes, and always at night, keep your bikes inside the house.
