We had the good fortune to stay in this idyllic spot during our week in San Carlos. Inside and out, this house is spectacular - it blends beautifully into its surroundings, providing magnificent views, privacy, comfort, and convenience. The expansive patio looks over the town and out to sea.....a wonderful setting for meals, entertaining, gazing at the night sky, or simply watching the horizon. A cozy enclosed outdoor area is the perfect place to read, write, nap, or play cribbage. The grounds are full of flowering trees, bushes, cacti. There can be little motivation for going indoors - until you do! Clean, comfortable, casually elegant, the house inspires relaxation and easy living. A fully equipped, gourmet kitchen makes cooking an enjoyable activity. The spacious living room with its incredible views is yet another inviting place to spend time. We especially loved the airy feel throughout the house which could make being inside as pleasant as being outdoors. The two bedrooms have plenty of space, closets, and comfortable beds. The two bathrooms are spotless, modern, and as easy to maintain as the rest of the house with the tile floors. We were able to find anything and everything we needed during our stay - whether it was a book to look up a bird we spotted, kitchen equipment, a game to play, towels for the shower or beach, or utensils for the grill. A washing machine was a useful bonus! The location of this house was ideal for us - we were close enough to walk to town, but being up in the hills gave us more quiet privacy - and front row seats for the stunning sunsets. The town of San Carlos offers a number of excellent, inexpensive restaurants, interesting shops, hiking trails, and a variety of beautiful beaches without the hype or bustle of a "tourist town." We would highly recommend this property, hesitating only out of selfish reasons - we would hate to have it become unavailable to us!!
