    Spectacular home, mountain views and hospitality.

    This spectacular home has unique architectural design elements and is very comfortable. If you appreciate modern design, restaurant level professional stainless steel kitchen amenities, the ability to have your group members gather in one large room or disperse among themselves by age or interest, stunning mountain views, gorgeous star-filled skies, nature in solitude and all the amenities of home at your fingertips, then this Home Away is for you. Lucía, the homeowner's agent, will welcome you warmly and will guide you from the town of San Miguel to this mountain retreat. Prepare for an adventurous road and ride to your rainforest home. A 4x4 vehicle is strongly recommended. Lucía is the consummate owner's representative. She arranged for personalized food and beverage purchases in advance of our arrival as well as catering services to order. She recommended tourist excursions and activities. As a resident of the community she is well-informed of everything you might need or wish to do during your stay. The four spacious bedrooms of the house, each with its own ensuite bathroom are similar in size and layout. The home is somewhat remote in location so consider this when planning your day trips. Five stars for this Home Away.
