Hotel description:

CASA MARIA, an inn or "posada" in Carabobo State in Venezuela, is truly a glimpse of paradise as seen by the live-in owners, Norbert and Gaby Flauger who have set it all up for anyone and everyone with an interest in nature, be they birdwatchers, insect, reptile or amphibian buffs, botanists or nature photographers. This is just the place for anybody who wants to feel right at home while taking a little time out from everyday life. In the garden alone at CASA MARIA, 140 different species of birds have been logged whilst a further 160 have been seen in the surrounding area. While you're at CASA MARIA, each day will bring a whole concerto of insect sounds, enhanced at eventide with additional calls from frogs galore, resident in the posada's various ponds. There are two butterfly houses and several small terrariums, backed by a very respectable nursery garden that functions in support of the serious research on the local the butterfly and beetle population carried out at CASA MARIA. There are several aquariums up to 30,000 litres in size that, besides providing restful contemplation, also give some idea of the fauna in Venezuelan and Caribbean rivers. In the 5-acre garden, home to over 200 species of plants, there is also a swimming pool and a jacuzzi. There are six thoughtfully arranged bedrooms, including two in adjoining bungalows, all with ensuite bathrooms and hot/cold water. CASA MARIA offers a variegated and delicious cuisine and can accommodate any special preferences, be they vegetarian or other; the home-made and completely natural jams from local fruits, plus dainty pastries along with smoked meats have become known well beyond the borders of Venezuela. The house is located in the Venezuelan coastal mountain range, the "cordillera de la costa", at some 760 metres, being about 2,500 feet, above sea level; it is about three hours by car from the capital, Caracas, and about 1 hour by car from the Caribbean itself. The climate can be compared to that of central Europe in summertime: neither too hot nor too cold and, whilst possibly a little damper, out-and-out rainy days rare.
