I go to Costa Rica often and have traveled all over the country. We took my nieces and nephews (home schooled) so they could experience different parts of Costa Rica.
We had a great time!!
We wanted to save money on accommodations and thought this would be a good choice (it was!). The house has incredible views, wonderful showers and perfect for a family. The owner's sister lives next door (great family). The kids had a great time.
The house has three bedrooms, the downstairs does have steep steps, but we could easily navigate. We stayed in the masters bedroom downstairs and the kids were upstairs.
While the road is not perfectly paved, we had no problem getting to the house or walking to the nearest restaurant. The family next door was great and their Mom made us the best bread. She even helped us get to the farmer's market. They were happy to answer any questions and while there English was not the best, we had no problems communicating.
While this is not a Four Star Hotel, this is a great place to stay.
