"I am going to do my best, but I'm sure it will not do this place justice. Like most people, I found Kalapiti, on the internet, with no other information other than the reviews that I read online. We are so glad that we took that chance, and in hindsight, we can't imagine spending our honeymoon in a hotel (or anywhere else for that matter). It was the ultimate honeymoon house! It was the perfect mix of privacy, luxury, and Costa Rica. Miguel and his staff were amazing. While we were never doing anything too embarrassing, they were great about announcing themselves prior to coming near the house. Simply put; they get it! It's a honeymoon, and they did everything they could to let us be (not completely necessary for us, but appreciated). They really had the fresh fruits, eggs, and yogurt that I had read about online (croissants like Paris), and it being our honeymoon, they also had a bottle of champagne waiting for us, and fresh flowers everywhere.Traveling in that part of Costa Rica is usually a challenge, but when you have a place like this at the end of that adventure, you will instantly realize that it was all worth it. The house itself is amazing, and it will take a couple of days to explore, and find all of the little places and special details, that make this house like no other. For instance, I think if found six outdoor showers, all tucked into the perfect locations, and made of the coolest materials. The creativity that went into this house is unparalleled; it is a tropical, Moroccan, vacation paradise, that looks like something Walt Disney would have designed. The property is big, and full of fruit trees (ask Miguel for a tour of the fruit trees (who knew cinnamon looked like that?)). FYI, He and his wife live on the property, which is a good thing, and although you can't see their house from Kalapiti, it is up the path, and not far away. I tell you this to reassure you that it is 100% safe. We have traveled through out Costa Rica, and safety is always our number one priority, especially when renting high end properties (I would not stay unless I felt secure, and this was not an issue at Kalapiti). We did go into town a few times through out our week, but by Wednesday, we had already seen the waterfalls, so we just hung out at the house, because it was the part of our vacation that stole the show. When we have children, we will bring them back to this magical place! Thank you again Miguel and Piti, we will never forget it! Matt & Kelli"
