The "family affair" . . . a large Casita (or little house).  2 bedroom suites with bathrooms, 2 futons in the living room, kitchenette, fridge, sun porch with breakfast table, coffee maker, safe, ceiling fans - sleeps 4 to 6 using 2 futons in living room. The Katydid is about double the floor size of the Mariposa Casita. There is also a patio with a hammock outside.

Walk out of your front door into our secret (ok not so secret now) garden. A mangosteen variety we have once tasted is starting to take off, multiple large mango trees and cordon de oro (an unknown tree according to multiple biologists who have looked at them) frame your walk. Perhaps Bandit will be waiting for you with a twig or a mango to play.
