We really enjoyed our stay at Angler's Lair. The property is absolutely gorgeous, it is spacious and quaint at the same time. It truly feels like your own personal property. The owners were kind, accommodating, and helped us in any way they could. From booking our shuttle back to San Jose to giving us rides into town when they could and anti-itch cream, they were truly willing to do what was necessary to make our stay wonderful! There is a kitchen where we prepared breakfast, access to snorkel gear and bikes, which saved us a lot of money in the end! At night and in the mornings you could hear howler monkeys and frogs, which made for wonderful sleeping arrangements! The shower was always hot and the beer stayed cold in the fridge they had! The property is ~4K to town and only 2K to the best beaches around up at Punta Uva. There are nearby restaurants and markets that don't require you to go into town if you don't want to. We didn't have a vehicle, but a bike just worked fine. Further, they gave us a cell phone to use with contacts built in for taxis, etc, which was so nice to have! I only wish we could stay longer! The price was on-point as well!
The only negative feedback is that because the owners live upstairs, you could hear them early in the morning. We are naturally early birds, so it was mostly fine, but for those that want to sleep in, might be a bit disruptive. They do their best to be quiet, but just the nature of the property. Also, they were doing some construction on the property while we were there and the sound of a saw made for less than private feeling. However, I understand you can't just cease all projects while people are there and while the weather is good, otherwise nothing would ever get done! But, something to keep in mind. But all in all, very quite, lovely, and truly a slice of paradise.
