If you really want to have a place to relax, please don't stay at Paul's place. He will tell you what you can do and what you can't, which is a lot, you can't walk with shoes in the house, you can't hang your towel in your room, it has to be outside, my towel was super wet the ne…

Response from Paul:
Luis is an addict and litters and believes he can do what he wishes. Luis, its coffee beans and they are cute and full of aroma. Surely you must see the positive in a defenseless coffee bean! They are great fertilizer on our soil. All the guidelines here are common sense. Luis lacks common sense. Luis established that by booking with us he read the properties guidelines. In choosing to book he chose to accept those guidelines. Upon arrival he ignored those guidelines, created his own rules and littered on my property and now defends his actions. I wish to speak no more on this topic. Thank you all for reading. There is always two sides to a story but there is only 1 right answer to every story. Luis has an addiction to smoking and littering and common sense is secondary to that addiction. Anything he states in defense of his problems is further proof why he is not being recommended. The Gemstone Retreat House will do just fine without Luis.

Paul was hospitable and he suggested specific local events. His space is set up like a serene yoga type retreat center.

Gemstone Retreat is truly a magical place you got to go check out the turtles in the Lake. They come right up to you and wag their tails.

Clean, comfortable and inviting. It was a short 1 night stay for us, but the home is beautiful and Paul is a fantastic host. Would definitely stay again!
