Details about the house and the area :
Costa Rica has a tropical climate and is known for its biodiversity. The main characteristics of a tropical area are high humidity throughout the year, lush vegetation and tropical insects. Please be aware that you will probably encounter some of those during your stay!
High humidity makes moisture an issue. We opted for an open-air built house allowing a constant ventilation avoiding moisture and bringing a cool temperature inside the house. Consequently, the house does not have glass windows, and no front door.
About security :
Security might be an issue in the area.
The house is surrounded by a full perimeter fence and access is made through an electric wooden gate. There is a full time guard living in a caretaker house inside the perimeter. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood, so is not totally isolated. The 3 bedrooms can be locked with keys, and the office has a safe, to which you will get keys and code.
Please do not hesitate to ask any more questions, we will be happy to answer!
