We spent a week in this beautiful home in March, 2014. We are a family of 4 and the place was more than enough for us, spacious rooms and closets, great open kitchen and great family room. The L-shape couch in the family room is very comfortable! In the morning we had our breakfast outside and enjoyed the beautiful view of Ocotal, then we would walk to the beach, just 2 minutes away. In the afternoon, we enjoyed the pool next to the restaurant, (there are plenty of pools around the complex). there is also a children's pool. The restaurant is just perfect, they cooked specially for us since we had some dietary demands for the baby (4 month old) and my 5 year old. My husband went fishing one of the days and caught enough fish for dinner, which they happily cooked in the restaurant for us.
Downtown is about 8 minutes away by car and we went to the supermarket a few times during the week to buy food, there is also a private clinic and ambulance services and pharmacy. The hospital is about 40 minutes nearby, which was important to know since we traveled with a newborn. There are other beaches nearby, Ocotal, Playa del Coco, Conchal, Playa Hermosa, Sugar Beach, etc.. within 20 minutes or less from each other.
This home is located on top of the hill with gives a better view of the ocean and it made us feel better than being in front of the ocean. We would definitely return next winter (we live in the northeast USA) if the property is still available. Dealing with Anthony, the owner, was easy and efficient. We would recommend this property to anyone who wants a great vacation in beautiful Costa Rica and beaches.
