Please note that the stairs to reach the villa are quite steep and not recommended for persons with ambulatory challenges.

We provide some basic amenities such as toilet paper, soap & detergent to facilitate your arrival but it's our guest's responsibility to replenish if needed.

Being located in a tropical garden, we cannot guarantee an 'insect free' or 'hypoallergenic' environment. Our property is smoke free and pets are not allowed but we cannot guarantee that previous guests or neighbors haven't broken the rules. If you suffer from allergies, asthma, intolerance to humidity or insect phobia, DO NOT RENT FROM US.

Please make sure YOU HAVE TRAVEL INSURANCE as our policy does not permit any refunds for cancellation including major causes like flight or ferry cancellation, illness, injuries, death etc.

Before you go to Contadora, you should take note of the following points due to the remoteness of the island :

- the wifi signal comes from the pool area where it works well. However networks are not stable and the signal may not reach the villa with enough strength for your device

- the water pressure could be very low, specially after noon. It could be so low that it is difficult to take a shower.

- in some rare cases (end of the summer), there could be little water left on the island (pools may be empty and hot water cut in order to save water)

- please save water. If your water tank has been consumed, it will take a few hours to refill it from our well.

- water on the island is potable but may have a smell of sediment.

- when the occupancy rate is high on the island, you may experience numerous power outages.

- there are no ATMs or banks. Make sure to have enough cash with you as only some restaurants will accept credit cards.

- there are some grocery stores but with limited choice (nothing that compares to your supermarket at home…) and you will have to pay in cash.

Please note that we will not reimburse your stay in the occurrence of the above events which are beyond our control.

Thank you for your understanding.

A little slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as it was described! The view from condo is breathtaking, and we loved having the ocean breeze keep us cool at all times. The size of the unit was just perfect for the two of us. The deck is amazing, and where we spent most of our time. Julio, the property manager, was very prompt in finding us a plumber when we noticed the kitchen sink had sprung a little leak. I couldn't believe how fast it was between calling Julio and having the plumber completely done with the repair; under an hour, I believe! I can't even get that service back in the states! I would definitely stay here again!

The oceanfront Villa we rented was not available and reservation changed to one without a view

  • 1 of 5

Property was okay but not as promised. Property manager was rude, combative and generally unhelpful. Will never rent from them again.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Villa. It was quiet and very close to the "airport," which is not an issue because there are so few flights. You can watch tropic birds, pelicans, hummingbirds, etc from a great viewpoint. The bed is comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. We were there mid-week and there was only one other neighboring villa occupied. Overall a very good stay!
