This little villa sits within a plant-fenced area for seclusion and safety - with a high wood fence along the skinny dirt/rock road and open view right to the ocean. The charcoal-like sand from the country's volcanic soil creates brilliant beauty against the 6pm setting sun. (We live near a sugar-sand beach so this was an interesting change in view.) While the area feels remote, it's not. There are three restaurants on the roads to the villa and locals come out on weekends for camping and fishing. With black rocks jutting from the ocean on one side and howler monkeys in the trees atop the cliff on the other side, a walk down the beach tops off the intrigue and peacefulness of the area. Having an entire tiny house to ourselves was great fun. The market on the major route, across from the turn road, has a good stock of food (albeit food prices in Costa Rica are very high) and there's enough dishware in the villa to make a huge meal. Our teenager loved having WiFi to share pix with her friends and the wash machine worked well enough for my husband to launder a shirt. I'd only make two changes - a better hammock and a longer stay!
