Eric & I are Canadians whom fell in love with this beautiful & vibrant country. We knew during our first visit in 2014 that this country had to be apart of our lives going forward. We feel this country is in line with our personal beliefs of family time, simple living, community connections as well as being environmentally conscious. Protecting our land and water ways through sustainable practices & using  high quality, powerful, non-toxic & safe cleaning products.

We can't say enough good things about this property and the hosts. This home is new, more than fully equipped with every amenity imaginable. The welcome manual covers everything from appliance manuals to an orientation on Delfines and the area. Los Delfines is a gem of a community with friendly people and an abundance of nature and access to a phenomenal beach that we walked on every day. This the best Airbnb we have stayed in ever. Kristy is an attentive host that deals with everything in minutes. Thank you so much for a great experience.
