Property Description

What a view from the worlds largest hammock, a place to sit back with a cold beverage or fresh fruit juice and chat among new friends.

Hang out with toucans during the day and wake up to the sound of howler monkeys in the morning. Full service restaurant and bar offering amazing western comfort food made to order, and sourced locally. Menu service during the day with evening meals served family style. Amazing sunsets - with views of the sea and the city below - followed by our nightly campfire.

We have beds made with Pine from the jungle inside the main house, And now we are proud to unveil our newest *Relax* dorm with the thickest matresses and a giant hammcok off the front deck....further away from social areas so its a great place to catch up on your sleep and bird watch from your bed!

Friday BBQ's, fresh breads, local ingredients, amazing fruits on site and we are now cooking from the new earth oven. Cool breeze, chill vibe, hiking accessible, coffee and bird watching tours. We are always adding cool things and recently we put in the new tree house for an even higher lookout.

Our bar is fully stocked with every thing from water to Limoncello made by our Italian neighbour and craft beer from the local brewery.

We do employ many locals who have grown up close by so do not expect fluent English from our receptionists, but do expect to be welcomed warmly and to practise your Spanish.

    Fabulous

    Great stay in all! However, we came in late - after dark - and was a bit more difficult to find than expected. Better signage would be appreciated, especially in the little town between La Victoria and Casa Elemento. We got a little lost in the beginning, found our way, but became increasingly nervous due to lack of signage. Other than that, great stay, accommodating staff, and great atmosphere!

    The view and hammocks are amazing. The private rooms are extremely nice. Overall experience was good, however the staff were not very friendly or helpful.

    The views and food are worth it alone. Basic accommodation, staff were friendly and helpful. If you're going to Minca then you have to stay here. Hammocks are great fun too. Would recommend.
