Response from Phil:

Thanks Taylor - It's really no more difficult than any other place in Costa Rica besides a sterile hotel next to the airport. Taylor rented a GPS and they don't work that well here and we do not recommend them. If you have WiFi and do as we recommend - rent a WiFi stick at the car rental agency and use Ways or Google Maps you come right to our door. We also provide exact written direction. Reading other reviews and you will see the majority of guests find us easily. Pura Vida Taylor come back soon!

You're most welcome and thanks for the kingly review. Safety and helping our guests get the most out of their visit is goal One. So satisfied you loved the studio and grounds, and you enjoyed San Isidro centro - it is so convenient to have all those services so close by. Pura Vida Asha!

Sad to see you guys go - I know your family and friends will be happy with all the coffee you bought as gifts - unless that is if you don't drink it all at your new coffee bar!!!! LOL Really enjoyed your stay and hope to meet up with you guys again at some point - a big Pura Vida indeed...

Response from Phil:

Hi Jan - Glad you thought our place was beautiful and you liked the French toast. Ninety percent of out guest have no problem getting here. If you speak little Spanish, Costa Rica becomes a directional challenge especially if you don't have or know how to use a GPS, Google maps or the app Ways. As I said over the phone, getting lost becomes a most memorable adventure, which your review proved as true! Costa Rica is always an adventure in some way! That's what makes it so popular - Pura Vida
