It's been one year already since my wife and I spent a few weeks away from our winter at this place. The view from the bed is picture postcard perfect: fifty yards of lawn, bordered by lush tropical plants and trees. Beyond that: a band of palm trees, a beach with golden sand and, in all its blue glory, the Pacific Ocean.
The apartment is comfortable, has excellent beds and a roomy bathroom. As we spent most of our time outside (of course), our own private terrace was mostly used in the morning, when the sun was still behind the house.
The terrace has a very comfortable set of chair and couch - perfect for hours of reading. In the afternoons, we moved to the beach, sat in the shadow of the palm trees (without risking our lives: the owners regularly have all coconuts chopped off) and regularly cooled off in the ocean, floating in the lazy surf.
We didn't miss a kitchen: we could make coffee or tea in the apartment and we often drove the ten minutes to San Francisco de Coyote to have lunch in the excellent Café Santé and dinner at the open air restaurant Lomo Clara.
All in all: a perfect place if you want to get away from it all (in our case: a dreary winter in Western Europe). If, however, you want night life, bars, hordes of other tourists and music that goes THUMP THUMP THUMP for half the night...... then this is not the place for you! The owners are friendly and left us alone, but were always happy to supply information about the area when asked for.
Our fondest memories? Floating on our back in the ocean in the middle of the night under a full moon. And New Year's Eve, with locals and tourists eating and drinking around the bonfires on the beach. Pura Vida!
