We are Leaf and Irene, from Sydney, Australia and Vienna, Austria. We met in early 2007 in Australia and soon started talking about the idea of moving to Central America, to open up and run a small hostel. We wanted to surf every day and meet people from all over the world.
When we came to Panama in late 2009 we fell in love with the wildlife, the beaches and the people. We where lucky enough to find this dream of a piece of land right by Panama's beautiful Playa Venao.
Meanwhile we have had three children and after having built the cabins and houses that form the hostel, we are still thriving to bring perfection to the 5 hectar beachfront paradise that Venao Cove is. We want people to enjoy this place and it's unique beauty the way we enjoy it, and to make it a home-away from home for those who share our idea of being close to nature, the ocean and to mother earth.
