Very clean and perfect location
Much thought has been put into the design and furnishing of this new little house. The kitchen made it possible to have both breakfast and a dinner at home. We appreciated the flashlight when the electricity went out. The washer and dryer were excellent. We would have appreciated lamps in our bedrooms and living room and screens on some of the windows. We loved, loved, loved the location—-quiet and within a family compound. We highly recommend this place——it just lacked a couple of things that I’m sure will be added as it is new.
Thank you for staying with us! Thank you for your input and we hope you enjoyed your stay!
Functional, modern, small house. Well-located in Monteverde
This property is newly built (as of 11/18) and just off the main road, a few minutes drive from Santa Elena. Santa Elena is not much of a town, but all there is around here and does have a couple small grocery stores, restaurants and gift shops. You could walk to town, but would not want to as the roads have no sidewalks and are narrow and chaotic with traffic. We arrived early so picked up the key and dropped our bags in the garage and put our food in the fridge (butter and bags of leftovers from our previous stay in La Fortuna). The fridge had been cleaned out prior to our arrival and the cleaning people were still there watching us operate. We came back 2 hours later and all the food was gone, so a rather unfortunate miscommunication, as someone must have thought this was from the previous tenants. The house is modern and clean with a big stove and fridge and a new washer and dryer. There is also a big TV with Netflix access, so we watched a movie one night. But there are a few vexing issues with the house. The bathroom sink has no trap on the drain, so sewer gas comes out. We ended up plugging this up, but just reflective of the build-quality of the house. Along the same lines, the supply valve to the washing machine leaks when opened, even though this is a new valve that could easily be replaced. The window in the bathroom sits loose in its frame so that even in the latched position, it can be jiggled free. Also, the front door has an electronic key pad that seems a bit wonky. The house has a sofa and love seat, but there are no side tables or coffee table (all of which could be easily added) so the only place to gather around is the bar area. All-in-all quite satisfied considering the low price, but a few easy-to-improve items.
Thank you for your comments. Your review will help us make accommodations and changes to improve the home and stay for others.
