It is more private and secluded than the other units. Fully renovated upstairs bedroom with new premium tile, ceilings, bath, deck. Lower unit has a kitchen/lounge/office, but can be converted into a second bedroom. The whole building can be rented as a separate unit.
House 5 is a large bungalow right by the pool in the middle of the property. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, kitchen, laundry. Currently used as the main reception area and office. No renovations have been done and needs a major refresh. One bedroom has been re-purposed as a dry room for linens. Another bedroom is for storage. One bathroom is used as a locking tool room (bodega).
In front of house 5 is the full-sized pool (about 5m x 8m). Pool pump has been updated to 1.5hp and a new Hayward paper filter has just been installed.

Behind house 6 is the old restaurant/bar that has been stripped to a barebone metal structure. It was painted and is in good shape. Ready to augment the design or finish as is as a bar, restaurant, yoga deck, lounge… use your imagination. It has septic, electrical and water hookups. Staircase from this structure leads down to the lower parking lot and to the main entrance (to accommodate non-hotel walk-in traffic, like for a restaurant).

Wonderful place to stay, with great hosts! A close drive to many beautiful beaches and restaurants. Our kids loved the animals on the property. It was such a great experience, and we will definitely be back soon! Xoxo
We had a wonderful stay. We were travelling on our bicycles and stayed there for only a night. The whole team was very chill and looked after our needs. The place was clean, the shower amazing, the pool so relaxing and the open kitchen perfect to prepare nice meals.
Had an amazing time at Chilantro with my husband back in January. Stayed with them for 3 weeks and still miss it. Loved the beautiful sunrises, the outgoing and generous staff, their pets, and bright spacious rooms. One of the only places that offers hot water as well. Yoga by the pool and bon fires are definitely some of the highlights.
