We stayed in Pochote at Angie's place for 3 nights with 2 adults and 1 child - although there is plenty of room for more. We arrived a little early and found the house ok (small town, house right on the beach) but could not get in. Within 2 minutes, the caretaker was there on his bicycle to let us in. He had seen us drive into the village. Neisy, the other caretaker, was very friendly also! She called the house phone after we arrived to check in and see if we needed anything, and stopped by to greet us the next morning. We loved the hammocks and table on the front patio - we spent all of our time at the house, on the front porch or walking the beach. Not only was the beach practically all ours, it is pristine and beautiful. I found the house to be very clean and updated. LOTS of towels were made available which is always helpful, as well as sheets, pillows and blankets. The kitchen was stocked with cooking utensils, pots and pans, even a coffee maker, blender and toaster. (bring your own coffee filters or use the percolator stovetop option) The outdoor shower was wonderful as well, I think we used it more than the indoor shower! I had to work online during our stay, and the internet was very good and access through US VPN was no issue - such a relief. The first day we relaxed at the house. The second day we had booked a trip to Isla Tortuga with Zuma Tours. They park their boats in Pochote 5 min from the house, so we walked to get on the boat in the morning before they headed to Montezuma. (we were also able to stop in the grocery store at the end of the day before returning with the boat to Pochote, which is great. Only one tiny tienda in Pochote) The third day, the 12 year old was feeling a bit restless, so we paid for all day passes at the nearby All-Inclusive Resort 'Barcelo Tambor'. The passes provided us access to their big, beautiful pool, mini golf, trampoline, unlimited drinks and meals for kids and adults. We had a wonderful day! The rumor is true, the American-Expat neighbor loves dogs! He has quite a few, who are friendly, but do bark at night, but are very good security guards!

Fantastic location in a sleepy village on the coast. The beach is very soft and the swimming is perfect. very cute bungalow complete with hammocks for relaxing. Close to good nature reserves and popular beaches.

This house on the water's edge is very unique. Perfect for a quiet get away. The house has everything you will need (fully stocked kitchen, bath towels and linens along with A/C and hot water). Several houses in town sale fish daily so it is easy to prepare meals. There is great snorkeling just across where the river comes into the bay at the rocks. Also a great white sand beach is just beyond the rock jetty. The local guys that work the boats that are harbored there at Pochote are really knowledge about the area and are most helpful. We went out with Cobo Blanco Tours, Our boat captain Tabus was wonderful. He was very couteous and worked hard to be sure we had a pleasurable experience. As stated on the listing the neighbor has 8 dogs that do bark through out the night and run loose on the beach. All of which can be annoying. But we loved the area and the people and we are planning our return trip.

We really enjoyed our stay at Angie's beach house. This teak cabin has all that you would expect within a traditional rural Tico neighborhood. It has great access to the tourist spots in the Tambor area. Our bags were delayed out of Liberia and Neisy, the property manager, was helpful in coordinating their delivery. She was also very helpful in providing information and suggestions about the area. Regino the handyman, was great and seemed to always appear when we needed him. This home is very cost effective when compared to staying in the nearby resorts and spas. It was a great Airbnb experience. We recommend Angie's cabin when staying in the Pochote/ Tambor area.

The house was clean and comfortable and right on the beach with a lovely ocean breeze. We enjoyed lounging in the shade in hammocks and watching the flocks of scarlet macaws and parakeets hang out above in the fruit trees. The house manager and the neighbors were extremely helpful, friendly and hospitable. The AC was cold, the bed very comfy, and the water was hot. Overall it was a nice taste of a true Tican neighborhood.

What a great beach house! The huge front doors open up to a great porch with a view of the beach and plenty of space for lounging in hammocks. The beach is quiet-- not many people and very small waves. It was perfect for our two-year-old. You can walk along the beach to a small town (Tambor), or if you're feeling adventurous you can wade across the river at low tide and reach a beautiful secluded beach around the point. There are lots of friendly dogs that live next door and roam freely-- I'm not a dog lover so this was annoying, but they were very chill and non-threatening and the dog people in our group liked them.

My husband and I work and live on an island in Washington State. We love to see new places and are active travelers. Always looking for a snow hill, a bike path, a surf beach or a place to volunteer.
