A great relaxation base

Myself and 6 friends stayed at Rincon Del Milagro a few weeks ago. I was initially worried (before seeing it) that the place would be dark as the photos had a bit of a submerged feel, but that wasn't the case at all. Actually, it's a wonderful, comfortable lived-in house with everything you need to have a great vacation. And it's an easy walk to Tres Palmas beach, which was our favorite beach of the whole trip. The back patio and charcoal grill were great, and we had dinners out there every night. We had an initial problem with the septic but Antonio called in someone to fix it the same day we told him - he's a great guy who was very responsive to our needs.
A couple minor things; the back patio door doesn't close unless you lock it shut, and can be very noisy if you brace it but there's some wind rattling it around. It was not a big deal at all. The shower in the first bathroom has no hot water (nor the kitchen sink), but we just shared our hot shower bathrooms (one of which is HUGE) and it was no problem at all.
We borrowed the snorkel gear for our day at the beach - having that was amazing, as it costs $20 per day to rent snorkel gear from the local dive shop (ouch), and you *must* snorkle Tres Palmas - it's fantastic. We probably saved about $80 on snorkel rentals. Shipwreck Bar and grill is right there, with tasty food (watch out for the Sunset Marina cocktail, it sneaks up on you). The house had plenty of beach-towels, and the rooms were nicely laid out far enough away from each-other so if you've got couples there's some privacy. :) I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to anyone I knew.
