OMG---A dream come true. Not a bit commercial. Fresh air, flowers,birds,jungle sounds,views of fields with cows and horses(2 new baby calfs). Secluded but easy access to anywhere you want to go(ie beach). Adventure(lots of hiking--one to a magnificent waterfall) coupled with quiet peacefulness and lounging around the pool with a fabulous fresh fruit beverage or cold
beer and a good book. Numerous photo opps. Four resident dogs--(2 are local rescues) greet you with wagging tails. Cocktails at 6--then dinner--and impromtu dancing on occasion and oh so many laughs. You can dine at your own table or join John and Maureen or other guests--whatever is your pleasure. There were never huge numbers of other guests so we always felt
and were treated as "special". We climbed Mount Chirripo(12,500 feet),went zip lining in the jungle and spent time at the beach--arangements were always available to get us to and from
where ever we wanted to go. Oh--THE COFFEE--they grow their own---what a way to start the day! and with fresh local fruit every morning. I could go on and on----my kind of vaca--no big hotels,resorts----a piece of heaven here on earth. I will be back. Love you John and Maureen.
