The SpaceThere are two private, spacious bedrooms available, one with a queen bed and another with two single beds. Both rooms have their own small bathroom, an armoire, a ceiling fan, and A/C. The room with the queen bed has an ocean view. The common areas do not have A/C so I usually keep the windows open for fresh air and the fans going. Free Wifi is available for basic internet needs. It is not fast enough for streaming video, etc. A TV/DVD player is available for movies if you bring some, but there is no public or cable television. Guest AccessGuests will have access to the large living area, the kitchen for cooking and food storage, a BBQ grill, and the porch area overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Laundry service is available for a small fee (washing machine only, hang dry). There is a covered parking area that will accommodate two vehicles if we park really close together. Interaction with GuestsI will be in the house, using the common areas, but my bedroom is located on the other side of the house. I tend to be early-to-bed, early-to-rise. Although I have not been here long, I am happy to share any information I can about the local area and, if I am available, wander around with you. However, if you prefer to keep to yourself and do your own thing while you're here, that's no problem either! The NeighborhoodThe house is a short drive down a well-maintained dirt road and sits on a hill about a 3 minute drive or 20 minute walk from downtown Torio. The beach is a quick drive or 10 minute walk from there. We have a few small restaurants in town and a couple of beach bars that are open at their discretion. There are also a couple of places to get great pescado frito and patacones (fried fish and plantains). If surfing is your thing, Playa Morillo is about a 15 minute drive away. Getting AroundThere is a bus stop about a 20 minute walk down the hill that can take you to Santiago, and beyond, if you don't have a car. Mariato is a 15 minute drive to the north and has basic grocery/hygiene supplies and gasoline (usually), but the majority of shopping should be done in Santiago before you arrive. Be very cautious of potholes and people/animals on the road! Other Things to NoteThere is a young cat here who remains outside. She is frisky and playful and is very curious, so don't leave your food unattended! Please, no other pets for now.
