"We will definitely be coming back.
My husband and I have wanted to go to Costa Rica for a while and we both wanted different things. I wanted water front and beachy relaxing vacation while he wanted adventure and rainforest. So once we found this house we knew it was perfect. I don't even know where to start. From booking to helping plan things to any information we needed, everyone was there to help. We came for a week but we're in Costa Rica for ten days, breaking up the long drive which really wasn't bad given the amazing scenery. We traveled with a one and Five year old who were in awe over everything. Everyone in every town we stopped in was so friendly I never once felt uncomfortable. But the house, wow. When we pulled in we were all in shock. The pictures don't do it justice. It really is as amazing as it seems. The house itself was so clean and had everything you needed, you instantly relaxed. The upstairs shower was amazing. We showered while monkeys played in the trees and all the birds. The yard was beautiful and the view was incredible. Waking up to the beautiful sunrise and the sounds of the jungle meeting the waves, insane. We really didn't know what to expect for the kids safety and once we got there, we were not worried. Brian was so friendly and so helpful he deserves a raise haha. He really made the trip so much better by being around and helping us with everything. He was so knowledgable about the entire country and would stop in to show us monkeys and herbs, fruit and all the beautiful flowers. I can't express enough how friendly everyone is, they are always willing to help you or even just talk. Brian helped us set up, zip lining, boat tour, fishing tours, hiking to waterfalls, even just going for a drive. He even helped us with the hotels we were staying at on the way home and where to stop along the way. If anyone wants to contact me, feel free I will gladly give you insight on this amazing house. The only things I wasn't too sure on were the bugs, which ended up being truly fine..yes they are loud but nothing that will bite, unlike the US with the ridiculous mosquitos. The ants were a problem if you sat still on the open dirt like my one year old but on the grass they didn't bother you. The ocean was rocky, bring water shoes. We went to a few beaches and they are all the same. The water is very warm so the tidal pools were actually hot. The rivers were very refreshing and how cool it was to swim with monkeys in the trees!"
