About Alice Lee

I am a sailor, singer, jill-of-all-trades, came to Guatemala to learn Spanish and to this beach to save sea turtles. Kept coming back and stayed once I realized the potential for development. Organized sea turtle ecofestivals in 2010 and 2011, and worked as a naturalist/guide in Southeast Alaska. Lover of nature, seeker of meaningful moments and still a traveler at heart.

Why Alice Lee chose Santa Rosa

Why not? It's not built like most vacation houses, this was and is in fact my only home. I built this property from scratch, when it was just a dirt lot full of weeds. Installed the wells, electricity, and with four masons, designed and built this house in four months. Not much machinery in these parts, all done by hand and with a lot of love. The garden is also an ongoing project and includes coconut, fruit trees, herbs and ornamental plants.

What makes this cottage unique

I made this house for myself and have lived in it for five years. I am looking forward to sharing it with like-minded people who are looking to get away from it all and back closer to nature. As a result, I have not included things like A/C or TV, in search of something more natural and sustainable. Although it can get quite hot, a dip in the pool, a shower and the fans usually do the trick. Also the electricity here is not consistent, so I am looking to transition to solar energy when it becomes feasible. The outdoor lighting is all solar.

El Hawaii is a place to get away from it all. As a result, it doesn't have shopping, nightlife, etc. It is a place where you can bring a book, a camera, your sandals, and just relax to the sound of the waves. There are chances to see sea turtles during nesting season July - December, and there are hatchling releases October - February. Mangrove and birdwatching tours are also an option. It is very quiet most of the time, no TV, but internet can be arranged. Also, there are a few restaurants in the bigger hotels, but with the kitchen you have the opportunity to cook, with shops well-stocked with fresh produce and locally caught seafood available. Cooking and housecleaning service can also be arranged at an additional cost.
