My party of 6 and a baby arrived to a very well appointed and spacious house around 4 pm. They left the code to the keypad on the door and we were welcomed with a air conditioned house that was both clean and neat. Sure the house shows a little age but is a bargain for the price. I was very concerned about the air conditioner but this house is equipped with a mini split system in each room. Lets just say my thermometer read 68 F every morning. Perfect!
The house had great wifi and could be used on the deck as well. The cable was great too....we took a ROKU and watched our own movies on a couple of nights.
The house is HUGE and we never felt crowded for a moment. We spent time at the CLEAN pool every day and night and saw monkeys in the trees at the back of the yard. All amenities are as described and we even washed a couple loads of clothes while there. The beds were nice but a bit firm for my taste yet we all slept pretty well every night. 2 King rooms and one room with 2 Queen beds.
The area is stupid safe as you pass through 2 security guard gates to even get to the property which is off the beaten path anyway. Takes 20 minutes to get to Tamarindo and one and half miles of that road is BUMPY but easily passable. BTW the roads from Liberia airport to here are very good even though they are 2 lane without much shoulders. My biggest complaint is that you are only 5 minutes walk from the beach but this place would be special if it was on it. Also, one of the pool lounge chairs had a broken wheel and was unusable.
We used the beach club one day and really enjoyed drinks, the excellent pool, and meeting some Ex Pats down there catching up on the goings on around the area. They charge $10 US per person to get in but apply it lunch or drinks.
We were sad to leave our home for the week and would return here again but might try to get closer to the beach next time.
The service from the rental company was top notch and always prompt. Great people in Costa Rica!!!
