This was our (my boyfriend and I) first time in Costa Rica and we started our first three days at David's place and our trip couldn't have possibly started off any better! Both my boyfriend and I have stayed in a handful of Airbnbs/home aways and David was by far the most gracious, welcoming, sincere, and sweetest host we have stayed with to date! Having come from LA, David and Renet made the transition into Costa Rica a breeze! They gave us thorough directions to the location (which is breathtaking, might I add), left us a folder with a number of restaurant/attractions to attends, assisted us with calling taxis *and* actually gave us rides down the hill when cabs were unavailable! The best part? One night when we were taking a dip in the infinity pool (which is pure perfection), Renet brought down a homemade flan for us to snack on. That was hands down an "above and beyond" moment for us.
We will definitely make our way back to Costa Rica and do a stop at David's place time and time again! Thank you so much for making our first Costa Rica experience one that we'll always treasure and never foget!
David and Rene were perfect hosts. We had lots of personal contact before arriving to make sure we knew exactly where we were going and they let us check in quite early. They were also very kind and understanding about a lost key at a local restaurant…! We met a local taxi driver Gilbert who became our personal tour guide, chauffeur, and new friend! call him for a ride (even back to San Jose) and he can hook you up with some very authentic Costa Rican experiences: hiking, fishing, waterfalls, mangrove tours: (phone number hidden). Would definitely come back!
David and Rene were great hosts! They were very willing to help with anything that we needed and their property is beautiful!
We arrived late after a long plane and car ride with much difficulty, however once we made it David and Rene were incredibly helpful and welcoming! The apt. is beautiful and the view is unbelievable, especially from the infinity pool. The amenities are great and the host is very helpful. Quepos and Manuel Antonio are beautiful and there is no shortage of activities. Overall our only regret is that we wish we had stayed longer!
Great host and really nice apartment. The pool is amazing! The hous is close to everything.
David and Rene were welcoming hosts - David kindly picked us up when we arrived in the area and dropped us off in Quepos on our last day. Rene dropped us off at the beach one day. They provided a welcome booklet with local information which was very helpful. They have great facilities available to use e.g. BBQ, laundry...
The studio flat is stylishly but simply decorated and well equipped. Hummingbirds fly around the balcony owing to the hanging feeder. The infinity pool was brilliant with stunning views over the rainforest.
The location of David and Rene's place is quiet and off the beaten track. On arrival we were concerned it would be too isolated to really enjoy what Manuel Antonio had to offer but the walk down/up to/from the main road was perfectly doable and the buses were very cheap and frequent. My tip would be to stick to buses or make sure you get a price off the taxi drivers before starting the journey. All that said, we found ourselves spending most of our time at the flat, rather than in Quepos or Manuel Antonio as it's so relaxing and beautiful there!
David and Rene were wonderful hosts!! Firstly, the apartment was exactly like the photos, super clean and with no unpleasant surprises. It was wonderful to arrive and have all our expectations met.
On a personal level, David and Rene are very hospitable and do want to ensure that their guests have a great time and are comfortable. We enjoyed talking with them and getting to know them a little.
Location-wise, this was ideal for us. The apartment is very close to both Manuel Antonio as well as Quepos but is just off the main road so that it's peaceful and a pleasant space to escape to.
