The outdoor terrace affords plenty of privacy, whether you are lazing in the sun, reading, watching the humming birds or fireflies, or just enjoying the wonderful views of the sea, bay and mountains.
Guests at Firefly can relax surrounded by grounds landscaped with fruit trees, tropical flowering plants, herbs, bushes and other indigenous trees. Guests are welcome to ask the gardener to pick seasonal fruit and vegetables from the garden. He may also show you one of the iguanas who live in the undergrowth.
The owners’ share a love of gourmet cooking so the spacious kitchen is well equipped. Guests provide their own meals. A welcome box can be arranged by separate negotiation.

They sell local produce and fresh coconut water if you ask they will fill the jugs (to arrange for this, their number is in the book).
