This is the house that my family and I lived for over 10 years, with all the amenities that we enjoyed. We hope that you will feel as at home there as we did.
The whole house, pool area, car port, and amenities. I can provide suggestions and links to nearby attractions and services. Additionally, it is possible to provide some meals, and additional housekeeping.
Interaction with guests
Guests have the house to themselves, but I maintain a small apartment above the carport with a separate entrance for when I'm in the country. That is the only time when the pool and laundry is shared, but guests have priority. I can also provide additional services when I'm there, such as recommendations for activities, and links for services, and coordinate any special needs as well. When I'm not there, there is a caretaker (offsite) to greet guests and who oversees the place. Maintenance employees will come and go through the parking area in order to be as unobtrusive as possible.
Friendly village, with a local supermarket Super Sol, and a few good restaurants, and local beach bar. You can buy fish directly from the fishermen nearby. You can rent a surf board and get lessons and book tours to local attractions right in the village.
The beach is great for surfing and also there are tide pools that form at low tide that are great for lolling around in the water and safe for even small children.
You can fish from shore or go out with one of the local fishermen at a very reasonable price.
There are public buses nearby, and a few locals who offer taxi service around town and to nearby town.
Other things to note
The caretakers take care of a couple of kitties that have gotten used to being friendly with guests.
Respect the house, the amenities, and the neighbors please. There is a caretaker or myself who greet and provide maintenance and services, and I provide a welcome booklet to help with emergency numbers, and other useful information about the house and neighborhood.
Canadian, expatriated to Costa Rica since 1994 and now back in Canada. LOVED my years in Costa Rica, but time for a new change. The house I rent in Costa Rica is the house I happily raised my family in.
