“To a dull mind all of nature is leaden. To the illumined mind the whole world burns
and sparkles with light.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson -
Upon arriving, I was overwhelmed to the point of tears by The Welcoming Committee who live all around this spectacular house.
All day, and all night, The Experience, for all one's senses of perception, is impossible to describe with words.
I compose and record my own music with the hope and prayer that it
will be inspiring, but I can say with certainty that only God could simultaneously
compose, conduct, and play all the parts in the Symphony that i am Blessed
and Privileged to have witnessed here.
My wife and I just spent a month this winter getting away from the dark sky and rain in Seattle and enjoying the bright sun and warm rain at 9 degrees north, what a difference. Half our time was on the Pacific side and the rest on the Caribe with a week at Canopy House enjoying Los Brisas. I'm a building contractor so was especially impressed with the construction which is very creative both in design and impeccable execution, but I'm sure everyone would also be impressed with the way the house works with the site. The other name is Los Brisas and the house has long runs of opening window/doors to allow a free flow of the prevailing breeze to flow through. It keeps the house cool and also helps to bring a sense of bringing the outside in, a very cool design feature. The porches at different levels and on different sides give you a opportunity to view the jungle with close in as well as far off views. We heard a zillion birds singing at dawn and the monkeys swarming through and leaping down about 50 feet from a very tall tree nearby into a tiny tree, to cross the driveway right in front was a highlight of our trip.
The kitchen is well equipped and we cooked in almost every night so we would't miss any of the action.
The other outstanding feature of the property is the property booking and management company. Caribe Sur Rentals and Green Management treated us like we were their most important guests ever and I'm sure that's the way they treat everyone. Canopy House and the grounds were clean and presented more like a fine resort than a vacation rental. These folks are as good at what they do as you could expect.
I would be happy to share our personal review with interested parties The house is very beautiful, it is set in lovely tropical gardens, we did see sloths in the garden, we saw howler monkeys.
