This is your chance to completely escape the monotonous grind of everyday life and rejuvenate your body and mind with a healthy dose of natural beauty, active adventure, rustic luxury, and cultural authenticity. All five senses will be on full alert here…each one contributing to an overall sense of joy and relaxation.

Fill you days with a plethora of river, ocean, or rainforest adventure – all available directly from your front steps.

Interaction with guests
We meet you at our office in the town of Sierpe and assist with the boat transport to the home on the river. Once there we assist with luggage and give you a brief tour of the home and important features such as solar power and on demand hot water. After that you are pretty much on your own to enjoy the home and surrounding area, however we will be available by cell phone should you need any assistance.

About the neighbourhood
About the owner: I have owned this house together with my father since it's construction in early 2010. We spend a month or two here each year and enjoy full days of fishing, mountain biking, and beaches followed up by evenings of mojitos and monkey watching on the deck. Whether you are an adventurer, angler, naturalist, or relaxationist, you will appreciate the natural beauty, solitude, and dynamic activity opportunity this property and home provide.
