The space Hello and welcome to our lovely vacation home! Please locate the house guidebook on the entry table in the living room to answer most questions. Enjoy the books located under the TV (yoga magazines, travel, bird and nature books, as well as favorite paperbacks.) We also have many games including a popular outdoor game called Corn Hole --a beanbag kind of horseshoes game. We have an Amazon Fire Stick for movies/TV shows. A new DVD player and classic/favorite movies are stocked! **You will need to switch the HDMI cord connection in the back of the TV between the DVD player and Fire Stick since there is only one HDMI outlet on the back of the TV** We have instant hot water so you should never run out! **IF YOU SIGN IN TO YOUR AMAZON ACCOUNT, PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO SIGN OUT. Guest access You have the entire house and property for your visit. You are welcome to open the windows and sliders to bring in the fresh air, as well as fans in the loft and living room. Or you may use the A/C in each of the rooms. This is an ALL ELECTRIC house, NO propane or natural gas is used. We recommend setting the A/C between 22-25C in the bedrooms, 28-30C or higher in the kitchen. When you leave for your daily excursions, PLEASE close windows/curtains and lock doors, you may leave the A/C on but turn it up to 30 C or OFF completely since electricity is very expensive. Thank you! Other things to note We have many places for dining in the area, as well as just down the road in La Fortuna. Ask our concierge Delvis for recommendations. Our neighborhood is an excellent place for a morning jog/walk. There is a nice trail/road that will take you behind our house, past Volcano Lodge toward the Manoa property that is very lovely. Enjoy views of the volcano as well as beautiful pastures and bird-filled trees. We do not have trash service (our gardener or manager pick it up) so please make an effort to separate recyclables and other trash. We have a big container for food waste for our composting at Pure Trek. Delvis will explain how to handle the trash. We are now offering private MASSAGE at the house! Please inquire for pricing and the menu of options. If you are a fellow yogi please enjoy the outdoor dining area or the Indonesian shala in the backyard for a yoga practice and meditation.

About the neighbourhood
We are located just outside of La Fortuna in an exclusive, small enclave of private homes and luxurious boutique hotels in La Palma. You will enjoy nice walks on the roads both in front of and on the road past Volcano Lodge toward Manoa (another resort). Look for oropendola nests in the trees! We have toucans, parrots, wild turkeys, scarlet tanagers, motmots...! So many types of hummingbirds and butterflies, flowers, and fruit trees. Enjoy!
Getting around
We are within easy drives to La Fortuna to the east, and to the west is Lake Arenal, other hot springs and other beautiful attractions.
