“Fully Furnished Cottage at Christmas”
Reviewed 27 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

person found this review helpful

Gary was an extremely helpful and kind host. He met us on Christmas Day and showed us where the local grocery store was as well as introduced us to the owners of an amazing local restaurant! Homemade tamales awaited us at his beautiful cottage surrounded by beautiful views and a beautiful comfortable outside porch with hammocks. He helped us make adventurous plans kayaking and Snorkeling at Samara. It was a great rural choice to stay not too far from beautiful beaches.

“Loved this spot off the beaten path...”

We loved this spot. Its about 20mins to Playa Samara, for those of you that want to stay closer to the beach. It has a wonderful back patio that faces the hills of Nosarita. We saw more birds here then we did on our hanging bridges hike in the mtn. Our hosts were great, gave us lots of privacy, offered us great ideas for places to eat and beaches to visit, and even met us in Nosara so that we could follow them to the house. It is a gated home, but its in a very safe area. We only kept the gate closed at night so the cows wouldnt walk down the drive. Howler monkeys came to visit us every morning and evening. There is a grill provided, and the home has all the amenities you could ask for. For the rental cost, this was a wonderful place to stay.

“Wishing we were still there!!”

We spent a total of 4 weeks in Cost Rica.....one week at this wonderful place! We started our vacation here at Gary's place and were very pleased with our choice! It was very private and peaceful. We were as busy as we wanted to be.
Our host met us in Nicoya, about 20 minutes from the cabin and showed us how to get there.
The cabin itself was very self sufficient, having everything we needed in the way of preparing and cooking our meals. The cabin had two bedrooms and two bathrooms and the covered patio area was fantastic. Hearing the howler monkeys our first night there a bonus! The chirping geckos were cute....that is until you heard them at 5am!! But one soon got used to it! It was great to be able to pick fruit right off the trees in the yard and enjoy it with your breakfast. I never knew star fruit tasted so good straight off the tree!
Our hosts were fantastic......bringing us a taste of Costa Rica for supper, as well as dessert one night! They also made arrangements for us to go on a boat tour where we saw monkeys, birds, iguanas and crocodiles....and the tour also provided a fantastic Costa Rican meals afterwards. We also toured a village where they made pottery. Fascinating!
We enjoyed ourselves so much that we are already planning our next trip to Costa Rica....maybe with the rest of the family!!

Hola, We sure enjoyed your stay at our cottage, and hope you can return again one day. Our winter may have begun now as we are starting to get a little rain which is nice because it's cooling down, and soon all will be green and lush. Best wishes, and hope you'll stay in touch with us. Many thanks, Gary & Alberto
