Other things to note
This is a wild place, full of nature, the unknown. Please be sure you are comfortable with that. Occasionally things happen, the power goes out, the internet stops working, an army of ants comes through. Adventuresome people only need apply. May not be safe for small children unless closely supervised.
Peaceful energy, no smoking. Avoid harsh chemicals on the property, try to use natural products. We very rarely feel the need for "bug spray". Bugs are around but don't often bite unless you are especially delicious. Infants & children are welcome but there are unknown dangers in this jungle location, they will need close supervision. The place is not "child-proof".
