Where are the words to describe how much we loved this house? The house, about a twenty-minute drive up through the jungle from the beach, is situated at the top of a mountain that overlooks other mountains covered in rainforest. Our favorite thing to do at the end of each day was to sit in our beautiful private pool and watch the sun begin to go down. The gazebo and pool are both perfect for having a fun dinner outside.
The house itself is lovely and roomy enough for six couples to easily be comfortable. It is perfect for both couples who want to get away for a romantic escape, to a group of friends who want to spend a week together. Having access to a washing machine and kitchen was a definite plus and is something we would not have had access to had we stayed in a hotel.
The thing we loved most about the house was how nestled it was in the actual community. There were no tourists nearby and all of the locals were extremely warm and friendly. Carlos, who lives up the hill, brought us bananas. Melanie, who lives in the neighboring house, helped us find the waterfall nearby. Karen and Doris, who own a “soda,” a small restaurant five minutes from the house, kept us full of strawberry and pineapple “naturales” each day. We felt that we had a genuine experience that other tourists most likely missed out on. The house is within minutes of beaches, restaurants with breathtaking sunset views, canopy zip-lining and our personal favorite, the Nauyaca waterfall.
Without a doubt, we recommend this beautiful home to anyone considering a trip to Costa Rica who wants an authentic experience. You will not be disappointed.
