We had a great time at Pete's place. We stayed there for 4 nights and enjoyed ourselves at the cozy cottage. There were lots of bugs when we arrived, but Pete's cottage is in the middle of the rainforest (unavoidable) and he provided bug spray (which was very effective). There was an AC unit, which was much needed. It rained quite a bit while we were in Manuel Antonio; Pete had movies, which provided some entertainment while we were indoors. I also woke up every morning feeling refreshed and excited to begin our next adventure. We awoke to the sound of bird's chirping every morning. Although we did not see any monkeys during our brief stay, we definitely heard them. We also saw a snake, lizards, birds, and agoutis. Itza, the concierge was very helpful and patient - we were very indecisive about the tours and excursions we wanted to schedule. Itza handled all of this for us and convinced us to go ziplining. Ziplining was a BLAST! Pete also has a HUGE pool that we spent quite a bit of time in. Finally, Pete's cottage is close to the bus stops. We traveled over to Puerto Viejo on the Caribbean coast for the second half of our trip (which was also a blast); the bus heading to San Jose (we caught the bus for Puerto Viejo in San Jose) was 5 minutes from Pete's place. Very convenient. My partner and I would definitely stay at Pete's again!

We stayed at Pete's place with our 9 month old son and we couldn't have been happier! The pool was a beautiful place to start and end our days. We loved the back patio to spend our evenings outside after Oskar had fallen asleep. And the location was great for easy access down to Manual Antonio. Pete also had a ton of info and menus for the nearby surroundings, which was greatly appreciated. I always welcome local's advice. On top of it all, Pete's Place is a beautiful piece of property, which is teeming with wildlife. Overall, we always felt safe and secluded, yet not far from the action. Great place. Thanks for the wonderful stay Pete!

We spent Two weeks in Pete's cottage and had an amazing time. This was our first visit to Costa Rica and certainly won't be our last! The cottage is set in beautiful jungle like setting and has the benefit of an enormous pool of which we had exclusive use for the entire two weeks. The cottage is. Dry comfortable with everything provided for cooking if so desired. Wifi and air conditioning excellent and laundry and cleaning exceptional. Located within a minutes walk of the local bus which comes every 10 minutes or so and is. Dry reasonable and absolutely no need for a car! Restaurants and bars and supermarkets within a couple minutes walking distance. Thanks Pete, for making our holiday an unforgettable one

We could not have asked for a better host or nicer accommodations. Pete was incredibly helpful and friendly. He was always available to answer questions and help us out with whatever we needed. The place was also WONDERFUL. We had a couple nights where we just stayed in the apartment and relaxed because it was such a comfortable space. The pool is gorgeous and we also took advantage of the washer/dryer (which Pete helped us use). Overall we had a magnificent stay and I can't recommend the place (or the host) enough!

Over the years, I have met some wonderful people here and made friendships that will last forever.
I'm a Leo, I like people, I empathetic and I love to laugh.
Living here has given me the opportunity to be one with nature, spend time at the beach and hang out with other like minded folks who came, fell in love and stayed in one of the special places on the planet.
I'm a reader and fiction works for me (Lee Child, with Jack Reacher are favorites).
I like to meet my guests but then stay out of their way unless needed, they are not here to see me, they are here to see Monkeys, Sloths, Toucans, Dolphins, Whales and all that Costa Rica has to offer.
Did I mention I like kids, and they seem to like me.
I guess you could say I'm a people person , and I'm looking forward to meeting you.
Pura Vida is the motto here, Pure Life which basically means live in the moment.
