Everything you need to be comfortable yet stripped of things that weigh you down. Wonderful all the way around. If you really want to relax take a taxi! It is very remote and the road is seriously challenging. Brian and Jody have a great place with wonderful volunteers, guests, and staff. Exotic fruits magically appear in bowls throughout the day....
