There were three of us "working remotely" from Vernon's home for a full month. He was exceptionally responsive to our internet needs and upgraded his service well ahead of our arrival. We were all working full time during the week (8-5) with lots of band width required and never had an issue until the very last day. Although we lost a good bit of that work day to ISP issues it really was just an act of God and Vernon was quick to contact the ISP for trouble shooting.
In terms of the property itself, it was everything we hoped for and more. The home is large, comfortable, and easily met our needs in terms of private and public spaces. The property itself was nestled into a bustling neighborhood (close neighbors, dogs, cats, chickens, cows, etc...) that was active from early morning until later in the evenings. We had a security gate to our home so we felt safe but not alone. There were also plenty of security cameras spread across the property's exterior with was another nice touch.
The drive from the main street to our house was a little more than one kilometer of very steep, pretty treacherous terrain, so we were glad for a four wheel drive with high clearance. The trade off was well worth it as the vista from our front porch over the Orisi Valley was nothing less than spectacular.
We contacted Vernon throughout our stay with questions and requests and he was always immediately responsive. What he could not address himself he coordinated with family and property managers to attend to. The furnishings were comfortable and adequate - few extra "frills" but that did not really matter to us. That said, we REALLY appreciated the outdoor hot tub and hammocks for lounging in the evenings.
The town of Orisi is sleepy but quaint. Since we worked during the week we really did not have big needs for excursions/activities during the week. We saved our weekends to explore the area or travel greater distances.
Overall this was our first experience working remotely and we all would do it again in a heartbeat. Casa Amarissa is something special.
