Our holiday here was fantastic. The house and views were amazing,the house was not only beautiful but functioned really well (nothing broke down).Lots of great beach towels,a massage table where we had a few great massages organized by Oscar. The pool was used a lot and was kept clean every day. I can't praise Oscar enough, he helped organize fishing trips etc ,bought anything that we needed e.g milk, bread. We did not rent a car but walked around locally. We found that we did not miss having a car, we took a boat trip to Juan del Sur for the day--very fun saw lots of Dolfins.
If you are thinking of not hiring a car there are two things to keep in mind. One, you need to do huge shop for meat etc as soon as you arrive.As Oscar was collecting us he took us to a huge grocery
store. Two. If you are driving I would not do this drive from the airport to the house in the dark.
(There is a Western hotel by the airport to stay there till morning.)
Below the house there is a wonderful semi private beach which is shared with Aqua Wellness Spa.
You can eat in there lovely beachside restaurant. There are very few people. In the next bay is the village of Giante a 15 mins walk which I loved doing. We only ate once here at lunch time and had some great fish. The store is cute but not much in it, You can get beer but no wine. We brought our wine duty free in Cost Rica. There is a great walk and view up the Giants Foot. We saw lots of monkeys and parrots from the house. We will definitely come back and I have already recommend this amazing house to our friends.
