Date of Stay
March 1, 2014
My wife and I stayed here for a few weeks in March. It was amazing. The two bedroom was perfect for us, clean, breezy (AC would really cool it down as well), nice little open kitchen & island to prep your fish, make a drink, relax around. Really nice bathrooms as well. Doña, the awesome housekeeper, keeps the place spotless daily & is so sweet. There is a great spot to park your car right in front of the house. The main house and pool are really nice and we spent a lot of time at the pool enjoying the views, birds and abundant wildlife. Great sunsets after a day at the beach. Jason and Victoria were both really helpful with anything we needed or questions we had......learned about another surf spot, where to buy shrimp & tuna, and Victoria even helped me find an acupuncturist after I hurt my shoulder surfing. We had a great time meeting their kids and playing with Wally and Wednesday (the "guard dogs"). There is a really neat trail that winds behind the houses and down by a little creek. In just a few steps you are really in the middle of the rain forest. We hiked down here a few mornings and watched the howler monkeys on their morning commute. There is also a small hotel just up the road (literally a 2 minute walk) where you can go for a meal. We liked to hike up the road occasionally in the morning (for the views and exercise) and stop here for a smoothie or Tico breakfast. The proximity to the main road is another great quality of the house. You are up in the hills and secluded...but it's partially paved and a super easy few minutes up or down. We rented another property after our stay here (to accommodate more guests) and found ourselves wishing we had stayed here the whole time. It was excellent.
