We really enjoyed staying in Dan's house. He was very communicative and accommodating from the start, working with me to change my booking dates after I'd reserved. This is a very unique house in a great location, and really feels like a secret getaway. I rented it with my extended family (7 adults and 2 kids) and half of us sailed out to the island, while Dan ferried the other half out on his Mako for a very reasonable rate. If you love to fish, hit the beach, or spend time on the water, this is a perfect spot. The remoteness (no roads, cars, and only a few houses) means that the experience definitely tends more towards camping or boating... be ready to bring your own food and drinking water of course - or catch dinner in the sound! The house has all the normal appliances and conveniences and Dan sent us a great list of things to bring. We'll definitely try to rent this house again sometime... thanks again Dan!
Beginning with the 20 minute boat ride on Daniel T's boat, our 4 day vacation started off the right way! This visit was our second, staying with friends in Dan's beautiful, secluded home on Cayo Costa, a true tropical island paradise!
My wife and I enjoyed exploring the island both on foot, and on one of the two ATVs, which were great fun and easy to operate.
We will definitely be back
Beginning with the 20 minute boat ride, the true tropical getaway was underway. Daniel T, the house owner, made my wife and me, and our friends feel immediately at home. Cayo Costa is indeed a pristine tropical island, and Daniel's house is the epitome of comfortable seclusion. The house comes with 2 ATVs which were great fun. We all enjoyed exploring the island, with it's miles of trails, miles of white sand beaches, fabulous shelling, great bird/wildlife watching (dolphin sighting were common). The house is perfect for either a romantic getaway or a group vacation. We will definitely be back!
