The vibe at Avocado Grove
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Finco Gallo is hidden away down a long driveway with beautiful fruit trees growing on either side. Our GPS kept trying to deliver us to the neighbors house, so a suggestion is to look for the small lane just before the address 20340. You will also see a pole that has a faded Pittsburg Penguins flag attached to it. Charles met us at the gate and gave us a quick tour of his property. He lives on the avocado grove with his wife and 2 children.
We were camping in our small van that night and were able to drive a short way into the grove for a sweet setting, but ideally he is wanting tent campers. Way back at the very rear of the grove is a very private spot for you to set up camp with a place for a fire and a few logs to sit on. A few rows over is a blue hammock with a mesquito net hung up and a can of bug spray, if you need the extra ammo!
There are MANY animals here! Charles rescues roosters and hens from Key West and other places, so at present there are about 200 birds! Sunset is a very busy time to be on the farm! You will see and hear the orchestra of all these birds finding their place to roost. We saw them chasing, talking, and few fighting things out. They were completely uninterested in us which made it easy to walk around and take it all in. There are a few ducks, we saw four cats (all interested in saying hello) and a very sweet doberman that walked around with us taking pictures. Oh! And don’t forget the roaming peacocks! Once night fell, the farm got quiet. It was very dark and a peaceful place to spend the night. You WILL wake up very early to the sound of a couple hundred birds saying ‘It’s a new day’ well before sunrise. This was a very unique experience, and we highly recommend it!
