Beautiful Home

  • 3 of 5

We just rented this home. It's very clean and well made. Immaculately clean. If you have OCD, this is your house! We had a mixed experience. I've rented from other homes in all areas of Costa Rica. Cell phone service can be limited as many areas are rural. Having learned from the past, I wanted to print directions for everything-we also rented on the Caribbean beach in Punta Uva. I had directions to everything and all was going well. The wife of this home wouldn't give me directions and insisted on meeting us to bring us in. We were getting in late and I called her for directions again, second request, and got the same story-just call. We get there around midnight and guess what? No cell service and nothing is open. It was REALLY frustrating. We had to go to the police station and we don't speak Spanish. We didn't get to get house until 2:30 am. This is our vacation. We don't want to deal with stress. The next day, we headed out early. Gorgeous house, but it's extremely hot in that area. You're by the equator and you don't want the sun beating down on you. There isn't any shade in front of the house and pool so you can't really stay there during the day. You can enjoy the pool very early in the morning and night. The inside of the house heats up and it's too uncomfortable. We headed to some property we bought to meet with my builder. Upon return, we still had difficulty finding it again, there's many winding turns and little roads. We had to call them from a restaurant- they let us use their landline. I asked them to give us directions that we can write down this time (3rd request). The wife wouldn't because she said she has company and would send her husband down? We paid a lot to stay there and I didn't appreciate being disrespected like this. They live right above the rental home. They live their full time and they were lounging around relaxing every time we were there. They should treat their clients better. There are actual street names and plenty of landmarks to reference. I've always found my VRBO homes via directions. The inconveniences and lack of shade were enough to convince us that despite it being a great house, we would be happier renting from a more thoughtful couple with shade so we can stay at the house and relax if we wanted to. Super clean, this rental has amazing potential with a few modifications.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments and let us give our answers to them.. The direction is given clearly in ALL our rental websites so you had just to put it in your GPS. Therefore we thought that it was not necessary to give the direction again once you told us that you will arrive only at midnight about. We only wanted to give our best service in picking you up so late in the night to avoid you to get lost. Regarding the shade an umbrella ist available on request and the bungalow has fans everywhere. And finally the bungalow is on a private area near from our main house and it seems obvious that we will not move every time we rent the bungalow. However our customers have all the privacy they search in that place. We are very respectful to our customers and do our best for them to have a very pleasant and unforgettable stay. Therefore we are scandalized by this kind of comments and would suggest you to take an hotel next time but not sure that you will find the same taxi service free of charge. Sincerely,

Amazing. The pictures do not do it justice.

My boyfriend and I are exploring the National Parks of Costa Rica and decided to rent this bungalow to have a central location to come back to each night. The place is a bit of a drive (about 1-2 hours from multiple parks), but is very easy to get to the main road from. The facilities were basically brand new, impeccably clean, and the kitchen had every appliance you could think of. There is a local market, French bakery, and great restaurants to chose from (you will fall in love with the restuarant on top of a nearby hill called Tilapia Pavón. You can fish for your meal or have the restuarant cook one they recently caught themselves). There is a great waterfall by the Tilapia restuarant that you can take a dip in, a local beach across the highway and a fantastic creek a few hundred meters from the house you can explore in the early morning to see wildlife.

The owners were unbelievably kind and accommodating. They will pick you up at the entrance of the village as the place is a bit tucked away. I would recommend having a 4wd so you can venture out on your own without the need of a bus.

I am excited to visited the house again and hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.
