Our stay exceeded expectations from the time of our initial inquiry as to availability until our departure. Craig Stanford, the owner, was gracious and hospitable; answered questions immediately, provided exceptional advice and ensured our overall satisfaction to the last detail. After a long travel day, we were met at the Liberia airport by the resident caretaker - Andres Morales Jimenez! He helped us navigate our convoy of 3 vehicles to Paloma Azul in the dark! Not an easy feat! He was also an invaluable translator, concierge, guide, surfing guru and now friend! On arrival, late at night, we were overwhelmed by the peace and tranquility of this spacious home. The "Big Reveal" came early the next morning! Such great beauty - hibiscus, Bougainvillea, birds, breezes, iguanas (a kid favourite) and a chorus of distant howler monkeys! AND, that incredible beach and ocean vista mere steps away! We had been transported from -25 degrees Celsius in the Canadian north to a true paradise. Prior to arrival, we arranged with Craig, to have his recommended Chef , Elena Gomez prepare breakfast and dinner daily. Absolutely the right decision! Shopping with Elena at the Supermercado was an experience and paid huge dividends at meal time. Her menus were varied, delicious, nutritious, typical of local cuisine, beautiful buffet presentation and enjoyed family style at THAT huge table with both she and Andres! I have never seen my grandkids devour so much food without a single complaint-especially the fruit platters, beans and rice, pollo con arroz, huevos, etc. etc.etc.! Sinai, the ever smiling and energetic housekeeper was amazing. Our rooms were immaculate each day and her floral tributes were appreciated. The handbook provided by Craig and the advice from Andres were great resources. Surf lessons, board rentals, fishing excursions, horseback riding, "secret" beaches and exceptional restaurant choices were easily arranged. Our stay at Paloma Azul was simply - A M A Z I N G! Volveremos pronto! Gracias. The Ritter Family Ottawa, Canada March 11-18, 2017

Playa Pelada and Playa Guiones are a simple stroll away - 5-10 minute walk or a 3 minute drive. House has all the basic necessities. Never had a problem with water or electric. The jungle brought howler monkeys and red squirrels that we could watch and listen to from the house. We were there during dry season so we saw few birds but we are told they are abundant during other seasons. Security is pretty tight - padlocks and security system in place. No concern for safety - though it's unfortunate throughout Costa Rica that you can't leave items in an unattended locked car without risking an attempted break- in. Same for most housing - can't leave things outdoors or unlocked when away from the house. Only improvements I'd suggest are: larger coffee cups/mugs, new pillows, folding chairs to sit outdoors. Everyone we met was friendly - ticos and travelers alike. We should have worked harder at learning more of the language but a limited vocabulary was not a block to communication - just made it slower and more interesting. Life and attitudes are very casual.
