A family friendly Eco-retreat with Bali style bungalows, each with their own ocean view and high enough top the hill to catch cool ocean breezes. Common areas include a large pool. Great for cooling off after a day of exploring while viewing sunsets over the breakwater. Cook meals and dine in the rancho that looks across the sea to Cano Island. Relax on the observation deck, perfect for yoga, meditation, wildlife viewing, a cup of morning coffee or afternoon happy hour.

We are striving to create a sustainable, creative space that works in harmony with our natural surroundings. We are solar powered and encourage all our guests to reduce, recycle and reuse to minimize the carbon footprint.The cabinas are designed with high-peaked ceilings and open air crowns to specifically cool and recycle the ocean breeze with ceiling fans to circulate the air.

Each cabina has two rooms, decorated with original art work from different artists. They are separated by a hallway and bathroom. One room has a full size bed. The second room has two twin beds, perfect if you are traveling with kids or friends but can also be used as a comfortable sitting area for couples. All openings are screened tightly to help prohibit our jungle visitors.

This is the perfect place to get away from the tourist areas and enjoy the wild beauty of Costa Rica.

*The pool is a perfect place to watch the sunset over the ocean and look at the stars at night.

Everything on the property is common area except for your personal cabina. Everyone is welcome to share the kitchen, the pool, the rancho, the yoga/meditation/observatory deck, the BBQ area, and their stories. The grounds themselves are full of seasonal fruit trees which you may help yourself to at anytime. If you need help getting them down, just ask and we will get a picker and help you.

We live in one of the cabinas and are accessible for any questions or concerns you may have. We love meeting other travelers and hope to get to know you hanging around the pool and rancho. We are happy to help with recipes or suggestions to use the fruits found on our property or provide an art workshop. However, if you are looking for a little more privacy, each cabina has it's own private porch and the property is large and multi-leveled so you can always find a quiet place of your own.

Our cabinas look over the quaint village of Ojochal where the community is strong and everyone from the locals to the ex-pats. Ojochal is the culinary capital of Costa Rica and hosts numerous fine dining establishments, cafes, and pubs as well as two authentic French bakeries. There's numerous mini mercados which all have delis where fresh meats and veggies can be bought to cook out on the rancho in the evenings. Right across from the village, on the west side of the coastal highway within a few kilometers of our cabinas, are many swimmable and surfing beaches, all family friendly and full of wildlife in the trees above the sand. We are also a short hike to a breathtaking waterfall and numerous swimming holes in the river at the base of our driveway. If you want to drive a few minutes, you can access at least three other waterfalls in the surrounding area, some with natural waterslides. Reserva Tortuga is right across the street from the village, the home of the sea turtle preservation society. Traveling north, we are about 16 KM from the town of Uvita which is home to the famous Whale Tail national park. Another ten minutes past that is the popular surf town, Playa Dominical.

There is a local bus stop at the entrance to the village, but it is a two kilometer walk to our place. There is a local cab service that can take you to our property or we can pre-arrange shuttle service for $2 o/w. If you are driving, a 4x4 or A/W vehicle is the best way to access our property.

Our property is surrounded by jungle. It is a beautiful, rustic, natural space where you can hear and see the jungle wildlife. It is amazing place to get in touch and be in harmony with nature and yourself. We are working towards creating a sustainable and global community where people can share their creativity and stories on their Journey.

We are a family that loves to travel for work and pleasure. Greg is a film maker and Dawn was a costume designer for theatre and film before taking a hiatus to homeschool our daughter. We love finding the unique experiences and hidden gems of any area we are in. We have travelled through Europe, Morocco, India and Central America, which has been made possible for us through amazing hosts across the world. We love meeting other travelers and hosts and sharing new ideas and experiences. This is our way of being able to give back for all the wonderful people and places that we have got to experience and to bring some of the joy we get when we are travelling home to us when we can't be on the road.
