Detached guesthouse and large yard with tons of space, private entrance, pet friendly, fully furnished, and more. Our 1/2 acre farmhouse lot is a garden oasis with lush palms, proteas, bamboo & succulents weaving throughout. Our garden and private lot have it all!

Come on in and relax in the expansive private garden. Our home and your completely detached guesthouse are located on a half acre of landscaped property, lush and artistic grounds with fruit and nut trees as well as bamboo and exotic garden plants.
We're expecting you and hope to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Let us know if you'll be here on vacation: to surf, mountain bike, sight-see, visit friends and family, here on business? If you need any guidance or recommendations we are happy to share our local knowledge.
We live in a totally separate home on the property with our own entrance and driveway on a separate area.
The Guesthouse is perfect for two with a full bathroom, partial kitchen- (No stove/oven) and a living area. The space is open as a studio without walls with the exception of the bathroom. The queen size bed is soft and comfy.
There is a metro rack in the bedroom closet to use for clothes, and to store your luggage. We offer beach towels and beach chairs to borrow and you are welcome to use 2 WaveStorm soft top long boards while you are visiting and a beach cooler on your adventures during your stay with us as well- please arrange this in advance as we keep everything in a secure garage.
Kick back and relax out in the back property with a large shade umbrella, picnic table and Adirondack chairs set up for our guests to use near the Treehouse.
We have a stainless gas BBQ to use. This outdoor space is one the best spots to just chill and take pleasure in the early evening for happy hour or morning time for coffee. For your morning enjoyment there's a coffee maker and electric kettle with coffee and tea provided.
The mini-kitchen is perfect for those who won’t be spending their time on vacation or business trip cooking and cleaning. We have a half sized fridge, microwave, cutting boards, fun glassware, plates, cutlery, knives, cutting boards etc… This guesthouse does not have a stovetop/oven for cooking. We’ve found our guests love the outdoor grill or enjoying their takeout meals back here at the compound more than shopping, prepping and cooking while on holiday. If there is something you may need that is not in the guesthouse just let us know and we can walk it over from our main house. We are more than happy to provide any item that we may have overlooked or didn’t get replaced in time for your arrival.
There is a flat screen TV with an HDMI cable provided so you can watch movies from your computer, the TV is a viewing screen only and is not hooked up to cable.
We are here to talk, answer questions, or make suggestions. Or give you privacy. Your comfort is our goal!
