With a combined 17 years of traveling, living & backpacking in 24 countries around the world, its easy for the owner to know what you want.
Superior comfort and quality:
Highest quality available Pillow Top mattresses, considered by many to be their best sleep in months.
The rooftop terrace with hammocks is perfect for sunsets, chilling in one of the hammocks or the swinging day bed, and the rooftop fire pit is great for after dark drinks and stories from world travelers & backpackers.
The swimming pool, with it's waterfall & lounge chairs, is a perfect solution for almost any reason you can think of; plus it has an amazing hammock hanging on the waterfall that greatly helps with Margarita Time.
With two communal kitchens, you can stay-in and cook your favorite meals from home, if you've been traveling for months.
Equipped with two living rooms or common rooms, a large selection of board games (23), Netflix or other on-line movies, it's easy to take a night off and stay in.
