Horses are a big part of life at the Hacienda. Karin has beautiful, well cared for horses and knows all the best trails. Karin may be able to provide a horse on a long term hire basis to experienced horse people.




All the rooms have a generous amount of space.

The Hacienda operates on eco friendly principles.

The rooms have windows on at least two sides to take advantage of the prevailing winds. Fans are also available. Only energy efficient light bulbs are used, rain water is collected and kitchen waste becomes food for the animals.

Please bring your own beach towels. It is a good idea to bring a flashlight. See the information page for additional tips and directions.

Karin is very tolerant but she reserves the right to refuse and evict guests who are disruptive to the harmony of the Hacienda.

If you have any concerns that your planned activities may not fit in with the ethos of the Hacienda, please ask in advance to avoid any misunderstanding.
