This was our second stay at Villa Mitchell. The house is set up around the pool. You fall asleep to the sound of the surf and wake to the surf and the sound of birds and howler monkeys. It is a short distance down the hill to the middle of Playa Carrillo where you can walk the beach, paddle board, kayak, surf and snorkel. There are crocodiles in the streams at each end of the beach. At night, the stars are overwhelming and easy to gaze at from the pool deck. If you keep the hummingbird feeders filled, you will be rewarded with some amazing birds.
The home is spacious with a living room that is comfortably cool and a master bedroom just off the pool deck. The house has been around awhile but is comfortable like an old pair of blue jeans. The owner provides cleaning service and that is a great feature as ants and other insects are a fact of life in Costa Rica.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stays here and look forward to a third time.
