Interaction with Guests
We live on site in the main house, but you can remain as private as you wish. We are always happy to talk with guests about our experiences and theirs, as well as gladly give information about the area and it's amenities, or even helping to coordinate activities and tours.
We feel very safe in our gated community, tucked away from the "hustle and bustle" of some of the nearby towns, but still close enough to enjoy all the area has to offer.
This relaxing atmosphere is great for bird watching and animal visitors, walks or just enjoying the pool.
We are central to enjoy all the coast has to offer with 13+ beaches within less than one hour drive.
Being a bit away from it all a vehicle is a must. A 4x4 would allow you to explore even further, but for those quick 10-minute runs into town, a car works just fine.
Other Things to Note
This is a pure Costa Rica experience- not all polish and shine, but comfortable and inviting and the stuff that memories are made of.
For the comfort of fellow travellers, there is no smoking permitted. General cleanliness will reduce the appearance of "un-welcome" guests.
We also ask that the air conditioning be turned off when you are not enjoying the indoor space. The rooms will quickly cool upon your return. Please ensure that windows and doors are closed when it is in use.

About the Host, Kim And Tim
We are former Canadians who have escaped the snow! We have given up toboganning in favor of boogie boarding at nearby beaches.
Looking for a change of pace we left Calgary, Alberta in March 2013 and came to Costa Rica with the mindset that everyday is a new adventure! With our love of animals and photography, we have many opportunities to explore the huge variety that Costa Rica has to (website hidden). our Spanish is steadily improving :)
