My husband and I loved this little house. We wanted a place on the beach away from tourist areas and this house was perfect!! We started and ended our day in the hammocks. We spent almost every day reading on the beach and swimming in the bay.
I think some beach chairs would have been great but we "toughed" it out with some beach towels.
The AC cools the house in the evenings. The dark wood and curtains make it feel cave-like which was great for sleeping.
We will be back!
Very secluded. The outside shower was great. Took a dip in the ocean every morning then showered out side with soap, shampoo and conditioner in the nice warm air. Totally relaxing. The memory foam mattress was sure nice too. I have seen all the advertisements but never slept on one.
BARKING DOGS - the next door neighbor has 9 dogs. They bark 24/7. If you like to be woken up 5 or 6 times a night, this is your place! The 1st night the neighbor came over to say hello and we instantly had 9 dogs on our porch. Later that night one jumped the fence and knocked some dishes off the outside table, scared us to death. The house is really fun, but being totally un-insulated, made the dogs sound like they were barking in the same room. We left 2 days early, just so we could get a full night sleep. Renter beware!
The property care takers were really friendly and helpful. The house is well equipped and was clean. The beach is really nice and great for swimming, it is very calm waters in Pochote. You have neighbors on either side, but they are friendly. The house does have a few bugs and lizards inside ( pretty normal for the area ) and the AC is not very effective with the house not being insulated. For the price this place was a great value and we will stay there again!
So let me start with this- the view is absolutely incredible. It was completely breath-taking.... And the hammocks out front really make things that much better! The locals were friendly and even the man next door- while a bit obnoxious- was friendly!
Now, the house itself is made out of wood and beautiful as well. Unfortunately when we showed up, the 2nd floor bathroom flooded and it SOAKED the 1st floor. The person that let us in obviously didn't know and he didn't speak English anyway.
Also, the air conditioning leaks A LOT of water. Luckily we only used it at night so it wasn't a huge inconvenience.
On a plus- there is WIFI!
We experienced an amazing week at this remote location. We were able to relax, be away from all of the touristy areas but still close enough that we traveled to them for day visits and had all the privacy and fresh food we wanted. Neisy and Regino were awesome on directing and helping us if we had any issues or questions. Regino brought us fresh fish, lobster, mangos and other things and really helped us live out the experience. We made friends with the neighbor, and he allowed us to use his kayak to go out in the ocean and explore the empty mountain/beach right around the point. We snorkeled out there and absolutely loved it. We will definitely be back in the future!
