Why Charles E Owens chose Grecia

La Terraza Guest House grounds rest in a park-like setting behind secure compounds type walls. There is a beautiful entrance garden you will notice when entering the compound. Your next view is the main house where you will find a large veranda that overlooks two gardens on the property. This space is where breakfast is served daily to all guest unless they choose breakfast in bed. The large Veranda is a guest community area where large functions can be held and can also be used for your relaxation pleasure.

The tranquil Vigia River runs between the central garden and the main garden accessible by crossing our red metallic bridge. The central garden area is bountiful with strategically placed orange, lime, lemon, mango, tangerine, banana and Avocado trees. You can also find noni fruit and aloe vera plants here; this lush garden is home to many exotic birds. Perfect for a private picnic or small events, the area is often used for weddings and engagement parties.

Each guest is provided the key to the compounds walk-in entrance and the garden, along with their room key upon check-in. When arriving at the property, please honk a few times rapidly so that we may open the gate for you. If you are coming through the walk-in entrance, please reach through that gate at feel for the doorbell on the left side.
