Such an awesome place
What a fun and awesome experience! The people of Providencia are just amazing, literally every person we met. Janelle, Shauny, Jenito, Keo and Holly are so great. Sorry if I butchered that spelling. Everything was clean and nice.
Just as an FYI - this house acts almost as a hotel. So you rent the house with the rooms, and there are two awesome ladies that cook you your meals, which is really pretty awesome and the food is really good. This is a requirement, which is totally okay, but just keep this in mind when you book the place because this costs extra if you're trying to budget things out :)
Also, the other highlights of the house were the resident dog and cat that stay on the property. How awesome it was to be away from our dogs but still have a dog as ours for the week!
Overall, such a great experience, we hope to be back sooner than later!
AMAZING way to "shut out the world"
We ended our 6 weeks of travel in South America with a weeklong stay at the property. It stole our heart. From the small island, the Caribbean vibe and amazing hosts, it was the perfect place to end our travels. The home is situated on the most beautiful side of the island. Morning sunrises greet you and you can look out across the sea to Crab Key. The rooms were as pictured, if not better. Comfy beds, fluffy towels and so much attention to detail.
The orientation before we arrived was great. Andy and Chris made sure we had plenty of activities to choose from and asked for input on our dietary preferences. But even with that, we were blown away on arrival. Chris went out of her way to welcome us warmly. She jumped through hoops to arrange activities. Rodri and Deanna kept our bellies full. The food was over the top gourmet. Every meal better than the last. Fresh, delicious, local. We will be back!!!
Fantasy lodging in Fantasy Island
Monasterio del Viento is the most beautiful house in Providencia. The attention provided by Cristina, Rodrigo and Gigi is unbeatable. Rodrigo's cooking is deliciously refined. This is our 3rd time to Monasterio del Viento and we hope to make it back every year or two. If you like Scuba Diving, Providencia is a top recreational diving spot with the 3rd largest coral reef in the World. If you are looking for paradise -- you found it!
Dream Honeymoon in Paradise
El Monasterio del Viento is truly the most magical retreat on Providencia Island. An oasis of serenity, local charm, incredible food and family-like hospitality.
We went to Providencia for our honeymoon, knowing very little of the island, and were treated like kings, taken care of every second, and felt like locals by the time we left, all thanks to this charming, personal, and unmatched service.
The house is tucked away in such a way that you are surrounded by water, waking up every morning to the most amazing sunrises and views that we enjoyed daily either from our hammock or from the porch chairs or sweet water pool. There is a ton of activities - from kayaking, to snorkeling, to just relaxing with the best music and books right on the deck, there is no way you will be bored here. The bedrooms are huge, light and airy, and tucked away in such a way that you have private quarters no matter where you stay.
Cristina and Rodrigo were exceptional. They thought of every detail and made sure our stay was truly unforgettable - planning special events for us throughout our stay and spoiling us with the best meals. They both do an incredible job of making sure you are taken care of without intruding - a true sign of hospitality. They are filled with knowledge about the island and able to show us a behind-the-scenes look into the wonderful place.
When it comes to the food, it is hands down the best you will find on the island. We ventured to many places, but were consistently craving Rodrigo's cooking (lobster skewers with sundried tomatoes and squid ink pasta, and his coconut pie - all to die for). Gigi was also incredible hospitable and makes the best hot sauce we've ever had.
The house is clean, bright, friendly, and felt like a home away from home. It was the best way to relax after our wedding, and we know plan to visit on big anniversaries.
My only worry is that too many people will go now and we will not be able to book again! It is a true hidden gem in Colombia.
I finally had a moment to contact you and thank you for the wonderful accommodations you provided to us at Monasterio Del Viento. The entire staff was equally responsible for our fantastic trip and the amazing moments we all shared. Rodri and Christina are two of the most incredible hosts we have ever stayed with! They are totally committed and very passionate about what they do and have the greatest personalities along with incredible talents in the kitchen and around the house. The food was over the top in selection, quality and presentation. Most importantly, every meal served was flawless. It even inspired my wife to take a cooking class with them which she really enjoyed. We all returned home to tell a different story regarding something special about our trip. We brought back wonderful hot sauce made by GiGi and still think of her kind demeanor. I never even locked my safe as I felt so comfortable staying at your house. Java found my belt which I actually thought I had left in San Andres. I have zero complaints and completely agree with the lack of wifi in the house as it forced some of our friends to relax and enjoy what we had around us. I also came out a hero for finding your hidden gem in Isla Providencia
Este sito es un paraíso. No solo porque está en una isla con una magia increíble, sino sobretodo porque el Monasterio del Viento es mucho más que una casa, es una experiencia. La atención, la comida, los planes y la gente que está detrás de cada uno de los detalles hacen que la estadía en la casa sea inolvidable.
Due to its extremely remote location certain things that we are all accustomed to cannot be provided. Some things like on demand hot water for showers are not practical due to the local price of energy. Energy generation happens locally through burning of diesel fuel, something we do not like to support and is very costly. Our water is solar heated! Again we are accustomed to having internet on demand. This is a problem on the island. The current technology is unreliable. Hence we cannot guarantee that you will have service on the Island. Lastly the pool at the house is operational, though it is not a whirlpool nor Jacuzzi. It also acts up on us once in a while.
