My family met in Costa Rica for a family vacation. The first place we stayed at was Pete's Place. It was perfect for our family. The beds were comfortable and it was great being able to prepare some of our meals at "home". There are many restaurants and a grocery store within walking distance, or a short drive. There are two porch's. One faces the mountains and the other has an ocean view. It was like being in your own private jungle. Many birds came to the trees and plants (including toucans) and we saw monkey's, frogs and lizard's by the pool. Sloth's have been reported to be seen there, but we didn't see any while we were there. The pool is wonderful. It is very big, the water is clear and the water temperature was perfect. It is at the bottom of the property, so there are steps doing down to it. The area is secure and we always felt safe. It is near the road but the road noise did not bother us. The walls in two of the bedrooms do not go up to the ceiling so if someone is watching television in the living room it does carry into the two bedrooms. We took a tour one day and were picked up in front of Pete's. It is close to Manuel Antonio National Park, which was a wonderful beach and wildlife area. Pete was always available if we needed him. The one problem area was the sliding door to the front porch, which was difficult to open and close. I would definitely recommend Pete's Place.
