Considering that March is the hottest time of year (97) with no air conditioning it wasn't too bad. The pool is a life saver, great pool. We had the whole house and casita and the casita was not cleaned. No towels,no toilet paper, and dirty. The hot water in the main bathroom did not exist and it seemed that it ihadn't for awhile. No internet for a few days and no phone at all. Caretaker not on top of things. Bought a standing fan for the house, hope it is still there for the next guests. Grandkids are from Arizona and.oved every minute in the ocean. Beautiful area and people very nice.

Owner response: In talking with the property manager he agreed that the casita was not cleaned and properly stocked. This duty was overlooked because workers were using the casita and the maid did not know that the renters were going to use it. The hot water heater in the main bathroom was broken and we had ordered a replacement from San Jose and it got replaced after the renters left. However the other shower had hot water. Not sure how the renter could tell that it had been broken for awhile, as this was not true. The internet is not totally reliable in Costa Rica. Imagine that! The property manager went to the internet provider and had it fixed as soon as the problem was reported. The phone was broken by the same workers and was repaired as soon as it was reported. The main house has 8 working fans and the casita has 3. Not sure why this is not enough. Please read the other 8 comments and compare to this one.

"Casa De Wayne" was: relaxing, refreshing, calming, and provided that much needed get away. The property provided all the necessities and Wayne went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and knowledgeable about the area prior to arrival. This property is perfect if you want to truly "get away" from all types of comercial activity and immerse yourself in "la pura vida." I do hope to rent from Wayne again as this was a most memorable trip with good friends and good times.

Owner response: Glad you enjoyed the place.
This was our first trip to Costa Rica, and we loved it! Wayne's place is off the beaten path, and yet, perfectly placed for exploration in the Nicoya peninsula. San Francisco de Coyote is a quick 3 km from the house, so groceries are very close by. Good restaurants (3-4) within the 3 km radius, and more 20-30 min from the house. The house has an open floor plan, most of your time will be spent on the large veranda area or by the pool rancho. You wake up "naturally", with the slowly increasing brightness of the sun, sit on the veranda looking over the flora and fauna to the ocean, sipping your drink of choice. Stay at the house or go on a day trip, return, and watch the sunset. Life slows down to a wonderfully relaxing pace once you are here. Thank you Wayne! How's the water slide plan from the second floor coming along?! (it was a suggestion we had for him)

Owner response: My grandaughter calls the forest next to the bedroom the monkey highway. I have also discovered the white faced capuchin monkeys up the hill. With so many monkeys, I am afraid to put in a water slide.
We have travelled throughout Costa Rica and rented numerous homes & cabinas. This home was in the top 3!!! Absolutely fantastic! We will definately be back and have already recommended to friends who are hoping to go to Costa Rica. Thank you Wayne!!

We called it Wayne’s World and it was a world unto itself. Quirky. Off the beaten path. The paved road ends long before you arrive, but if you follow Wayne’s instructions carefully, you will arrive in paradise. Wayne’s map shows a small community of houses, but where are they? Cleverly hidden. You pass a pink house on the road, and if you lean out from the balcony you can see a jut of pink stucco through a haze of bright orange Poinciana. A gate just before Wayne’s property suggests that there might be a house up there somewhere. We never saw it. Ingenious land use and architectural design provides neighbors, without breaking the ambiance of being in an enchanted forest. In addition to creating your own little jungle retreat, this type of planning also helps to preserve biodiversity and maintain wildlife corridors. Colorful birds, frogs, lizards and intricately patterned moths will entertain you, but the troop of howler monkeys living in the jungle around the house take the academy award. The upper-level covered balcony will be your favorite place to start the day with a cup of good Costa Rican coffee and end it with a glass of wine. The big front bedroom has the feel of a glassed in tree house. The large kitchen/great room is perfect for preparing a meal and visiting. But if you are not in the mood, there are several good restaurants in the area. The property consists of the main house and the small casita. The two share the pool, which is big enough for all. We enjoyed chatting with the couple staying in the casita. From the infinity pool your gaze flows over the landscaped yard to the forest canopy and on to the crashing surf of the Pacific. The view plus the covered patio and barbie will tempt you to linger long by the pool. And to return to Wayne’s World again and again.

My husband, myself, 2 children & Best Bud with Friend were all guests at WAYNES WORLD! We were lucky enough to stay in this Paradise for a month! Location is epic even is you dont have a car. Close walk to beach & resturaunts. It was hard to leave the house with all the amazing ammenties. I personally feel it was the pool that kept me happy as a clam!! Would love to visit again and reccomentd it to all for a little peace of heaven!

My whole family stayed during a week on this wonderful place. It is wonderful for kids, adults and even for our dog. We got everything we needed and more. The pool always clean, the green areas are great, the BBQ worked fine and the coyote beach area still one of the few untouched areas of Guanacaste. You have waht you need: a grocery store, fresh fish, a wonderful beach to go jogging every morning and a wonderful pool to watch every sunset !!! The owner is very friendly the neighbors are very helpful people! I shouldn´t be writing this because so many people will be interested on renting the house so when I want to spend my vacation there it will be already taken.LOL Don´t think it twice it is THE PLACE.

A beautiful house and location for a very relaxing vacation. We had a fabulous time away from the hustle and bustle and enjoyed the people and nature! If you can handle a semi-long drive on a bumpy dirt road, and crossing a river, it's a great destination away from everything!
