Description of the Timehri vacation cottage rental
The cozy rental cottage is cabin-style, containing a small kitchen, 1 bedroom, 1 bath & a small living room.

The cottage rests on 5 fruit-bearing acres of organically-grown coconut, banana, plum and other fruit trees, many inhabited by colorful nesting birds. At the front of the cabin is a veranda which permits a panoramic view of the property and the Demerara River, and the various varieties of aquatic birds that fly along the river's bank.

A wooden dock on the property extends beyond the Demerara River's edge which permits a closer encounter with the aquatic plants and animals, as well a location to comfortably view two of the three islands in the river's center in addition to the large passing ships and boating activity along the river.

There is a nature trail with benches for resting at the rear of the property. The trail allows for the exploration of some of the Guyanan flora and fauna, including beautiful birds and other native creatures in their natural habitat.

Area Information
A world apart because of its natural setting and jungle environment, the vacation rental property is located on the west bank of the Demerara River in a locality called Hermanstyne.

From the Cheddei Jagan International Airport, the rental is approximately 2 miles by car and an added ½ mile boat-crossing of the Demerara River. This entire area is an unincorporated region called Timerhi. The capital, Georgetown, is 25 miles by road and 20 miles by boat downriver from the rental.

Timerhi is impacted by the Arawak, Carib & Macushi Indian tribes of the Amerindians that live in several villages along the creeks and small rivers that comprise the Demerara River basin. Traditional Indian crafts, including wood carvings, woven hammocks & baskets and other types of Indian artistry can be found in an Amerindian mission village called Santa Mission, located on the Kamuni Creek a tributary of the Demerara River in Timerhi.

Within Timehri, public transportation can be accessed in 5 minutes on the main road on the east bank of the Demerara River. Here, one can encounter the Gold mining company called Omai Mining. There is a local market with daily fresh produce and there are various restaurants that serve traditional Guyanese cuisine.

A town called Linden is a 1-2 hour boat ride on the Demerara upriver from Timehri. From Linden there is a road that leads to Brazil which takes on average about 10 hours to travel by car or bus.
