Five of us stayed 3 nights at this beautiful property in late May 2011. What a treat! We felt like royalty and were really treated as such by the friendly staff. Vivianna is a charming host who prepares a delicious Costa Rican breakfast. Ask for the fresh corn pancakes with sour cream -- YUM! The rooms are very clean and well-appointed. Screens on all the windows and A/C, which we did not need as the nights really cool down. Dominical is about a 30-minute drive (to the beach and SURF lessons!) and San Isidro is 30 minutes inland in the other direction -- try to buy your groceries at the farmer's market. We hiked two or three waterfalls on the property -- these are on private property, so you should have them to yourselves. Absolutely gorgeous. Relax and enjoy the sounds of the birds and howler monkeys in the morning, and the chorus of frogs at night.
We'll be back -- and I can't wait!
