Las Palmas Bungalow
"Stayed two weeks here at Katharine and John' bungalow. There were four of us (two adult couples) and we managed quite well in the space. The kitchen is a one person kitchen so we had to do the kitchen-shuffle. All our needs were met and of course as everyone mentions, Katharine was a big help with arranging tours and shuttles and anything else that came up.. The local bus is great for going to Manuel Antonio and to Quepos (only 300 colones each way). Lots of restaurants to explore. We mostly used the local bus and our feet to get around. The taxis are plentiful but got a little tired of haggling over price for fares. Back to the bungalow. It is a great deal for the area. We grilled out on the deck, enjoyed the swimming pool very much and enjoyed a couple of downpours while sitting on the deck. Lots of birds, monkeys now and then, and lots of barking geckos and iguanas. Also got to see an occasional Scarlet Macaw which was wonderful. The bungalow is very clean and well supplied to meet all our needs. Thank goodness for the fans and air conditioning! Also used the safe for our belongings while out and about.
The only cons (and not that big of a deal): with there were a few more pegs upstairs to hang towels and things. Wish there were a couple more comfortable chairs (the wood is hard but beautiful). And finally it would be nice to have fans in the bathrooms to air them out and the air conditioner in the downstairs bedroom makes a lot of noise.
Would I recommend this place or stay here again? Absolutely!"

The property is beautiful! Mike is great, and his home is amazing. Awesome location.
"I was traveling in Costa Rica for a month and this is the best place we stayed. The home itself is beautiful and charming, the beds are so comfortable. The pool is a nice way to end the day. Mike is great. Very hospitable and helpful and extremely knowledgeable about the area. The view is to die for! It is at the top of the hill with floor to ceiling windows in the front room looking out over the water. Wildlife is everywhere. Be careful opening the window that the monkeys don't get in! There are great restaurants and bars all in walking distance. Also there is a bank right next door with an atm and a small supermarket where you can get the basics, and a few boutiques where you can shop the local art and souvenirs. Easy bus or cab ride down the hill to town or the beach or the Manuel Antonio park. Mike and his friends at the office downstairs can help you book any activities. The wifi was the strongest signal of anywhere we have been. He also supplies a local phone so you don't have to use your cell phone for local calls that will run up your phone bill. There is also a full kitchen and washer and dryer, which was very much appreciated. I couldn't recommend this place enough. Thanks for a perfect end to our trip Mike!"

"The house was beautiful, surrounded by the jungle and very private, but also centrally located in the Manuel Antonio area. Our family of 5 ( 3 kids under 13) had a fantastic stay. The house has lots of room for everyone to spread out and relax. The smaller shallow pool was great for our youngest, while the older kids loved the deeper pool. We saw monkeys, toucans and iguanas right outside the house! Very glad we had a 4x4 as all the roads are quite steep once you are off the main road! I would definitely recommend this house. The management company was excellent to deal with and answered any questions we had prior to and during our stay."
