About this listing

Casa Astrid's open air cathedral ceilings and french doors, which span the ocean side of the house, allow for wonderful light and ventilation. The spacious covered deck is ideal for dining or relaxing in one of the various hammocks, or lounge chairs. Two bedrooms, one with a double bunk bed, and a built in couch provide sleeping space for up to 6 guests.
Bring your laptop to enjoy our highspeed Internet connection via the fiber optic phone line. Sleep in the cool quiet, courtesy of the external air conditioning units in both bedrooms.
The house is located in the a little village of Cabuya, which is 7km from Montezuma. Cabuya boasts a number of great little cafes, restaurants, bakeries and stores, including three full service mini supermarkets where you can buy fresh fruits & vegetables, household supplies including toiletries and even beer, wine & liquor. Our house is within a three minute walk of a bakery, a restaurant, a cafe, a mini supermarket and a tiny boutique. The bus that goes to Montrezuma with a transfer to Cobano stops a "block" from our house.
The beach in front of the house is unusual in that there is a rocky shelf that extends out for about 50 meters. There are no strong tides or big waves. The beach changes dramatically as the tide goes out. It is lovely for swimming around high tide and fun for exploring and wading at low tide.
Should you arrive after hours you will find a key in a lock box on the side of the house. I will email you the code after you book. Our property manager, Jenny owns the Cafe Coyote which is about two "blocks" from the house. You can check in with her anytime you need anything.
Other things to note
USE THE SAFE AND LOCKING CABINETS FOR FOR VALUABLES
Use the same common sense that you would at home. Don't leave your valuables out in plain view to tempt the honest! We have never had a break in at the house but if you leave you wallet out and the door open when someone happens to be walking by then you wallet may decide to take a walk too!
There is air conditioning in the bedrooms. Please do not leave the AC on 24 hours/day. It only take about a minute for the bedrooms to cool down so turn it on right before you turn in! The rest of the house is open air (with screened in windows) so don't run the AC with the bedroom doors open. Use the awesome ceiling fans instead!
