We had a great experience at the Studio House - Monica greeted us as we arrived and helped us secure transportation to the airport. We were carless and were able to walk to the beach and town for restaurants/groceries easily. The place was comfortable (with A/C) and clean, with a great view. A great way to spend the last two nights of our honeymoon

This place was absolutely charming and Monica is very sweet. The location is secluded in the Potrero area in walking distance to Playa Prieta. From the house there is a good view of the ocean and sunset and just a minute or two north towards Sugar beach, the views are breathtaking. Playa Flamingo and Playa Potrero are nice and very quiet with good bars and restaurants on the beach or close by. Coco Loco in Flamingo is insanely good food and the Casino has incredible views of the Gulf. Sugar Beach was our favorite beach and Limonada had the best bartenders around. I'd definitely stay again!

Awesome place! It is a short walk to the beach and it is secluded and peaceful. Great house for a honeymoon couple. Though I would suggest you rent a car, there are great towns nearby. Look forward to coming back!

My girlfriend and I had a great stay at Monica's place. The two story loft is well-done and has an equally beautiful view. Monica was extremely helpful with anything that we needed, including great directions/advice. We would definitely stay again if we make it back to Costa Rica.

Amazing first stop in Costa Rica! The house was perfect, had everything you needed. All necessities are located close by, and the sunset views are spectacular. Negrita, the little doggie, will visit you and she is the sweetest. I highly reccomend checking this place out, it was wonderful.

Monica's space is wonderful! Unique set up and an AMAZING shower. Great view of the ocean, amazing sunset & sunrise. We loved the easily accessible path to the beach. Monica provides you with a book explaining the area, great restaurants, and other details to make your stay that much better.

The studio house was perfect! My boyfriend and I stayed for a couple of days in March and it was just right. We drove to the beach at las Catalinas one day and walked the 20 mins or so to the closer beach that you can see from the front porch of the apartment the other day. Both beaches were fairly secluded, private, and lovely. Some favorite features of the apartment: 2 levels, an incredible sunset view, an AC unit that was much appreciated, 2 large ceiling fans, and a really unique shower that felt like you were standing outside. Monica had a beer for each of us, and a water bottle in the fridge upon arrival. Their outdoor dog, Negrita, was darling! She joined us one day for a walk to the beach and was the cutest playing in the waves. Would definitely recommend staying here!

My husband Aloys and I enjoy the simple things in life, and for that Costa Rica is the ideal place: long walks, good food and good wine... it's in the simplest of things that you find joy in life!
