My family of four were staying in Playa Grande when we decided we wanted to see a different part of the Pacific Coast. We found this place and contacted the owners who responded quickly. Happily the house was available and we stayed there the next night! Jeff and Katherine were so kind to have the place ready on such short notice. Their directions were clear and accurate and we found it quite easily. The grounds are like a botanical garden, there are so many fruit trees and beautiful flowers. The pool was small but perfect for our needs. The entire property is like a mini-resort without all the noisy people. The house was much more stylish than most vacation rental places and we settled in easily. We were only there for two nights so we didn't end up cooking there, but it looked like they had everything one would need. The rooms all had A/C, which was quite welcome because the entire west coast was in a bit of a heat wave when we were there. The house was immaculately clean and had a lovely spice smell. We would be happy to stay there again (for a longer time, hopefully) but visitors should be aware that it's a good 10-15 minute walk to the ocean. On the plus side, it's just a 5-10 minute walk to two good markets and two very good restaurants. Jeff and Katherine helped set up a day tour to Isla Tortuga and I know there are many other activities they can help set up. We loved our visit to Casa Tranquilo!
