Very peaceful setting. Monkeys come by, as do many birds. I loved waking up in the morning, looking out the sliding doors and seeing trees and more trees! No thru traffic only neighbors, very little noise except for the wind in the trees. Situated about a 3 minute drive from the main road, 7 minutes to the beach and 5 minutes to the local grocery store makes this spot perfect. The house is very comfortable, very good layout for more than one family. Plunge pool was much larger than I had imagined and very comfortable. Fully furnished kitchen and BBQ. We made some great meals in as well as being able to frequent the local restaurants which were excellent. Brenda, the property manager was very helpful. You won't be disappointed staying here.
This is a very well appointed house with great appliances and well finished. 6-burner gas stove, BBQ, fridge with ice maker, granite etc. LOTS of electrical outlets which was fantastic. The plunge pool was surprising comfortable for multiple people. Each bedroom had a sliding door to a patio and each bedroom had its own bathroom. The location is incredibly serene, Most of what you will hear is wind, birds and monkeys. It's like living in National Geo! 6 mins to the beach and conveniently situated between Junquillal and Playa Negra. The property manager was very attentive and available to answer questions. We ran out of propane and another tank was delivered in 2 hours on a Sunday! This would be equally suitable if you wanted a quiet romantic getaway or if you have several people and kids to entertain. This is a quiet location but there is lots to do in the area.
This beautiful new home is like living in Paradise! It offers so much ....a short walk to some of the most beautiful (and secluded) beaches in the world! The house is located in a new development called "the Orchards" and is truly a beautiful and peaceful location. The house offers all the amenities one needs including a lovely infinity plunge pool that is wonderful to float in morning, noon and night. I loved floating in the pool before bed and looking at the vast sky full of stars! We watched howler monkeys in the trees a stones throw from the pool deck! There are many restaurants to enjoy only a short drive from the house! A WONDERFUL vacation.....and you do get used to driving on the Costa Rican roads....slow and part of the adventure! (Really only one short distance to the property requires a bit more attention while driving!)
