Ingeborg was always accessible by email and prompt to answer my questions. Her manager Feliz was welcoming and the house is in supreme condition. Feliz's husband Jose works as a private taxi and charges very reasonable rates and you can negotiate up front to see how much it will cost. It was very convenient considering how getting a taxi in Costa Rica can be stressful and scammy. Very nice place and environment overall.
Very nice welcome from your property manager! We felt comfortable right away. The House is roomy and clean.
We walked to the supermarket, bought some food items and a bottle of wine and and made ourselves home at the house.
After a day of travel it felt like home. I would definitely stay here again.
We spent a week at Ingeborg's house. We were met on arrival by Felizidad, who manages her house. She was very friendly and helpful. The house was comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with all we needed for cooking. There were nice grocery stores within walking distance. Taxis were readily available and arrived within minutes after we called. The complex was small, quiet and the security was great.
Very well equipped apartment, conveniently located, close to busses. Excellent cross ventilation, cool breezes. Highly recommended.
The house was perfect!--clean, well-equipped, and comfortable. It was easy to make ourselves right at home.
The location was great for our day trips. We shopped mostly at Wal-Mart where they have a huge selection.
Sad as it was to leave, the short drive to the airport was a good way to end the trip, especially at 3:30am!
Ingeborg checked in by phone and email as did the local caretaker. Security was 24/7 and the neighborhood was quiet and peaceful.
I'm hoping to return sometime soon. A great choice I have already recommended to friends.
Most thoughtful owner and great communicator. Ordered American cable television which was greatly appreciated during football playoffs and for the times we were not enjoying patio. As snowbirds we especially enjoyed coffee and fresh orange juice in the patio in our pj's admiring the flowers and birds.
We felt very secure in the community. The location was great
We were able to go everywhere we wanted to go by bus. A short walk to a convenience store that was a mini grocery and carried anything we could want including the best bread and pastries made fresh in-house daily.
Thank you for making your home available to us.
