This place is exactly what we needed in the middle of our trip. It was a very relaxing and quiet off-the-grid place. I can’t explain how pretty the view is, it is definitely something you need to see yourself.

Hi Hayley! My husband enjoyed hosting you! Thanks for the review. I’m including your private feedback here since it’s useful for future guests: ““Thank you Stellavera for your quick responses and making sure everything was setup for us. Thank you Mike for your hospitality and sharing all your knowledge with us. We enjoyed this off-the-grid place so much.”

If I could give this experience 10 stars I would! Mike greeted me, gave me local information, showed me all the ropes and answered any questions. Stellevera wasn't physically there, but she kept in touch daily with suggestions or ideas of things to do and made sure I had everyt…
