"We just spent 2 weeks at this fabulous property and I would happily give it 10 stars if I could!
Inside, there's everything you need to complete your stay from a fully stocked kitchen to loads of pillows, sheets, towels and all the comforts of home. It's beautifully decorated and squeaky clean. Gorgeous! The photos truly don't do it justice!
Outside, the photos tell you everything you need to know! Immaculately landscaped, large pool and spa, plenty of seats, and a great tiki hut with large BBQ for cooking. There's 2 hammocks in the palm trees just outside the fence, and an endless beach where you will only see one or two people each day. Picture perfect sunsets are a bonus!
As others have mentioned, do rent a 4x4. The roads around the property and about 30-45min in each direction are challenging gravel roads, but totally worth the drive.
About 10min away is the little town of Playa de Coyote, where you'll find 2 grocery stores with everything you might need, though stopping in Nicoya on the way to the property will save you some money.
We went to the Pizza Tree about 10min away in Playa San Miguel and that was a real treat. Worth a try!
We saw iguanas, gorgeous birds, and even a couple howler monkeys while there.
Joe is so responsive and helpful. He was quick to answer all emails and provide us with any information we needed both before and during our stay. Of all the places we've rented, Joe was by far the most helpful and gracious host!
Pilo, the innkeeper, was also very helpful. He doesn't speak much English (and we spoke no Spanish!) but we found that using a phone app that does translations was a very effective way to communicate! He seemed to enjoy that!
Thank you Joe for making this wonderful property available. We're already planning our next trip!"
