We spent three wonderful days at 3 iguanas. We stayed in the upper unit, with what turned out to be a fantastic private patio and plunge pool. The owners, Amnelise and Doyle, live in the second floor and were lovely to deal with. They arranged tours through Doyle's company Dtours, and were helpful but unobtrusive.
The room was clean and well appointed, with a microwave, fridge coffee maker and all one would need to get the day started. The unit itself was a nice bedroom with air, conditioning. The sink is in the bedroom and the bathroom is a bit odd as the toilet is in with the shower....just something unique that we quickly worked around.
From the rooftop deck and plunge pool, your view is of the mangroves and the sea.
In back of the house is a canal where we swam ( it's about 300 yards long and clean- perfect for a pool swimmer adjusting to open water.
They have a perfect little dock, kayaks and a hammock. Bicycles were available and we used the, each day to peddle into the village- the proximity to town is a great advantage.
We loved every minute of our stay. I'd highly recommend 3 iguanas.
