My home has a rural setting with the house set back from the road so it is very quiet. We are located in a small family community so it is not possible to have large parties. We are located on a hill overlooking the rest of the homes on our street and the noise carries. Absolute quiet is required after 10 PM. The property is on 1 1/4 acres and we have many flowers such as orchids, heliconias, ginger, and canaries. I also have many varieties of fruit including mango, papaya, jobo, corazon, star fruit, lime, lemon, and avocado among others. I also have about 30 banana trees but 13 are just beginning to bear fruit as we lost some due to a windy storm this year. There are 3 bedrooms on the second floor and each has its own bathroom with shower. All have queen size beds. One of the upper bedrooms is our master bedroom that is not rented except by separate arrangement. There are 2 bedrooms on the main floor. One has a queen bed and the other 2 twin beds. There are two bathrooms on the main floor but only one has a shower. There also are two showers outside along with a sink and toilet. They are enclosed so one has privacy. The kitchen is modern with two ovens, a dishwasher and a microwave.
The villa focuses on the outdoors. There are several porches and the tower that has two levels. There is a gazebo for relaxing and outdoor dining. The driveway and much of the walks are made with river rock embedded in concrete.
The swimming pool is a star attraction for our visitors. It is 50 feet in length with benches in the water at the shallow end. The deep end (only about 6 feet) features a hot tub that drains into the pool as a waterfall. There is shelter from the sun to the left of the pool along with some comfortable seating and a couple of lounge chairs to capture the sun. A double lounge chair is on the first floor of the tower and another near the entrance to the pool.
The house is air conditioned with each room having its own control unit. During the day the prevailing wind is wonderful so mostly we keep the house open during daylight hours.
We have wireless Internet so bring your laptop. We have cable television with Netflix as well as other services.
We have a caretaker who comes to the house Monday through Friday beginning around 7 am. He leaves around 1 pm. His name is Rilfredo and he cleans the pool twice a week as well as trying to keep up with the grass and plants.
