Everything in this listing was true - great house, clean, steps from beach, all the amenities, secure, and truly a beach paradise. The house and location was so great, we just ended up hanging out there and making the occasional side trip (10 min walk on beach) to town for food or restaurant. Fairly good swimming beach was great for my 9 and 12 year old out front once I set rules on how far they could go out - beach in front was a bit rocky for surfing unless you knew where to go. Otherwise, 20 minute walk through 2 refuges down beach there was a fantastic beach good for light surfing and boogie boarding. 10 minutes away was a river with pools and water falls flowing into sea, and 5 minutes away there was a nice resort for cocktails and massage if so inclined.
House wasclean and had all the amenities. 6 fans for hot days, but it was comfortable in shade on property in Feb. Property was great, right up against forest in back, far enough back to be private, and chock full of wildlife- howler and capuchin monkeys daily, iguanas, and bird-o-rama. Crashing surf put us to sleep at night. The other 2 houses on property are great too, and private enuff that it wasn't a problem to share the laundry, the hammocks or the ping pong table. Jerry the caretaker was great, he transported our luggage from/to town, and made us souvenirs from bamboo and was Super friendly and helpful - was hard to say goodbye.
Car not needed- 10 min walk to town. Good for kids or teens - 2 families of 4 or one large family who wants more space; or 4 couples. All I can say is when we come to CR again, we'll have a hard time beating this place.
