If you want to experience how the locals live, this place is perfect for you. The house is incredible though it does need some work. Especially the plumbing.
I love the location of the house. It is in the middle of everything.
This property was an unexpected delight for those looking to adventure into the heart of Costa Rica, without giving up any amenities. Along with a wonderful Kitchen to cook in (granite tops and all appliances needed), WiFi, and a very European decorating style, it was comfortable, quiet and so close to nature. The bedrooms and bathrooms on the second floor offer stunning views and a great nights sleep.
The "sunsetting" on the balconies offered up a wonderful evening show of colors and skylines with the Beach and Ocean as our back drop. Then we retired to the Kitchen for a wonderful meal and continued back to the balconies to review the encore of a "Star" studded night sky complete with meteors if you are lucky enough, we were.
The Beach is very private and secluded with no tourists, so the Ocean was ours to enjoy at will. with long walks to the Estuary and boogie boarding. The homeowners had boards in the storage shed for us to use. It was fun.
The restaurants in Junquillal were wonderful all run by locals and getting the meet them made the experiences all the better. We love to eat out and did so often to try the local food and cuisine. I would highly recommend it.
Also, in town we were able to participate in a turtle release and watch the cycle of life unfold from our own hand. The hatchery there called the home an informed us of the time and place on the day it happened. Just stop by and put your name on the list to be called during your visit, it was a humbling experience to behold.
We loved this place and will stay there again next year, certainly enjoyed having an entire home to ourselves with access to a wonderful beach, a nice town with great restaurants, and privacy.
Enjoy and thanks to the homeowners for helping us during our visit
to get a real "Costa Rican" visit.
