This was a perfect vacation house for my friends and me. There are many great restaurants, coffee bars and beaches in the area, without all the seediness that comes with heavily commercial areas like Tamarindo. On our slow days we spent many hours in the infinity pool soaking up the sun and catching up.
Any of the minor inconveniences are easily overlooked. The wi-fi was spotty for a few hours during our week long trip, but I believe it was due to the public utility and not the house. One of the A/C units needed servicing but our attentive host sent someone over in less than 12 hours to get it fully operational. The host's communication was impeccable - they even supplied us with COVID testing information that got us out of a pickle. The gardener and house manager are friendly and professional.
Be aware that one of the twin-bed rooms is accessible through a rather steep stairs up a "tower," but the view is very rewarding - just don't be too inebriated when making the trip.
I would recommend Flamingo Adventures ATV tours sometime early during your stay as that is also a good intro to beaches in the area. We also took advantage of their other adventures such as ziplining and jetskis. La Pizzetteria Da Oreste has fantastic brick oven pizza and a great owner. Just a few doors down at Carpe Diem is a solid breakfast/coffee shop with great sandwiches. Hemingway's attracts more tourists but is also right on the beach. Playa Prieta and Penca are clean and beautiful.
I'd like to wish a big "thank you" to our hosts. We had a truly memorable stay and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this house to my friends and family.
