phenomenal vacation :: highly recommend the beach house
Submitted: February 27, 2013
Stayed: December 2012
the best part of our stay was not the property, although the property is one of the nicest i've had the pleasure to stay in (particularly for costa rica), it was the people. the owner, rick, was highly communicative and attentive to our every request. he even came over one night at 10pm to let us in the house when we'd locked ourselves out. he had great recommendations for restaurants, yoga, surf shops and instructors, mini trips to great surfing spots and sea turtle viewings, parties (it was new years) and bars, etc., and was quick to respond if there was a problem with anything. we became friends and will certainly be returning.
in addition to rick, the housekeeper / cook for the property is incredible. she cooked huge meals for us every day, with fresh local ingredients, including fruit and vegetables, native specialties, snacks, etc. we could have specified exactly what we wanted, but we left it to her every day and it was wonderful.
the property was clean and new, with a full set of appliances, all handmade custom furniture, a nice hammock upstairs, easy outdoor dining, a communal bar area with a great pool and outdoor shower. it was such a great, relaxing place to stay as the new year turned over. there were other folks staying next door, and we all had a great time hanging out and relaxing with each other at night.
and finally, the town and beach are phenomenal - you can't find a better surfing / yoga destination in this hemisphere in my opinion.
