"Loved this place. Super comfortable house with all of the amenities and a great feel. Even nicer than the photos. Sitting areas abound, tastefully decorated, all bathrooms are ensuite, little details provided (laundry soap, coffee, tea and even bug spray - which by the way wasn't necessary in the dry season), kitchen super usable and well supplied (yes, as others have commented, the dishes are high (we saw this in other houses in Costa Rica too) but it allows a window at the sink with great views of the monkeys in the trees, we just put our dishes in the pantry to make it easier - plus the maid had set the table so many of the dishes were already down anyway). The really great thing about this place, aside from it being a great house with a nice refreshing pool, is that you see more animals while relaxing at home than we did at the Manuel Antonio Park and Rainmaker Park! Titis (endangered squirrel monkeys) came by (20-40 of them), even several babies clinging to their mommas, every morning and many evenings, we also had visits from capuchin monkeys, coatimundis, iguanas, motmots, and other beautiful birds. This helped make our trip spectacular. Jonathan, from the property management company, was awesome and very helpful when we needed it. We had a couple of hiccups and he handled them graciously and quickly. He also booked excursions for us at the same price as booking yourself yet we in no way felt pressured to book through him. The information was simply there with his phone number - call if you need his services, or not. Great place!"

"We were so glad to arrive and find this house to be everything it claimed to be. The property is in a good location, maybe a bit too far to walk to town for some, but doable if you like walking. It's a short drive though and easy to get back and forth.
The house is new, modern, clean and well equipped. The owners are very good communicators as is their support family that lives in an adjoining part of the house. We had wonderful surprises like a plate of papaya picked right from a tree by our door and a delicious desert delivered as a surprise treat one night. You won't be disappointed with the property itself.
As far as others who have mentioned the winds and in particular this location we are very sorry to have not taken them seriously enough. Yeah, a little wind, big deal. Well it's a big deal. It would be a great idea for the owners to put a kilo of ear plugs in a drawer for those who don't come prepared because the noise from the wind, it does howl, and the rattling of the windows and sliding doors makes it almost impossible to sleep. There are more sheltered places around Monteverde where the wind is not so noticeable, but this location is in an open field with no protection. Take heed and bring something to stuff in your ears. We took tour pamphlets and jammed them into the sliding door frame to reduce the rattling of a bedroom on the downward side of the wind direction which helped a little bit but nothing can reduce the howl of the wind streaming across the house. Maybe we were unlucky with the weather, but we asked and many said this was pretty typical winds for the area. The wind does not let up, and is at its strongest at night so be prepared.
Still a wonderful area to visit and we would go back as the house is truly a 5 star, but just a bit more prepared. Good value and caring owners were the key."

"Home was extremely comfortable for four of us. Amenities made it easy for everyone. Fabulous surfing! Community location is great, but a car is necessary. It's a very short ride to Jaco and ideal for trips to Manuel Antonio National Park, etc. We would stay here again if given the opportunity."
