About This Listing
Beautiful countryside house, with 3 bedrooms each with its own private bathroom and full size bed (in one there is a king size bed), very modern, and spacious. additionally it has two sofa beds in the living room. The hot water for shower is only available in the two secondary bathrooms not in the main one, just to keep in mind.
The house has an amazing view to the Volcano, and the surroundings are just perfect for nature lovers. the property has it own pool.
Around the property there is a Fruteria about 2 km ( this is a place to buy fresh vegetables and fruits from the area), also there is a big supermarket where you can find everything about 15 minutes away.
There is a national park just 2 hours away, it is vary famous and its call TAPANTI.
The house can is recommended to be access by a 4x4 car, because in sometimes of year it gets very rainy, and although we try to keep a good maintenance on the road, its better with this type of vehicle, also if needed we can arrange transportation, such as pick up and drop off from and to the property if you wish.
The property is simple an amazing place to place, it has its own BBQ, in case you want to have a grill during sunset, and it is located on the top a hill, so the views to the valley are just breathtaking. sometimes it can get foggy, but i believe its part of the experience, its totally peaceful and there is also the possibility to arrange a guided walked to the property surroundings.
FULL PROPERTY! 2 ACRES PROPERTY
House on top of a hill with beautiful views. If you slept in a room bigger than this one, either you are a millionaire or a giant...
Very private house, with modern decoration.
The house needs some make up on the outside patio/deck, but overall is wonderful.
Communication wasn't the greatest, but host was away overseas, so it's normal.
La casa es excelente, las fotos publicadas coinciden exactamente con el lugar.
El lugar es precioso, un sitio tranquilo, con una vista preciosa del valle de Cartago. La casa dispone de todas las comodidades para pasar unas vacaciones perfectas.
La persona encargada (Don Carlos) estuvo atento en todo momento a atender nuestras necesidades. La casa está ubicada en un lugar muy privado, donde puede compartir la naturaleza.
Hello Sara. I have already written about the house, so I do not understand why I'm asked again. But as it was very intersting and nice experience to stay in the house so I'll give a short summary of what I sent to airbnb.
The house is great; no doubt. I think the architect must have had the thoughts in a Hollywood movie!
I would gladly recommend the house to people who drive a 4x4. Don Carlos worked on the road the week we stayed there, so it is somewhat better tham when we first arrived, but rain is a factor that may give more problems.
Don Carlos was also our hero when we had no water in the evening, in the beginning of our stay. I'm sorry we had to call you late about this, but letting the water go to the pool instead of the house was not any thing we were informed about nor would give a high priority. But Don Oscar came late, in the rain and solved the problem.
As it was quite cold the week we stayed we were very thankfull for the two heaters!
The weather also kept us out of the pool in addition to our doubt about the maintenance. Language problems made it not possible to understand why there was no chlorine in the system and the valves for returning water to clean the filter seemed not be used frequently. Maybe there is an other system for the cleaning of the water, we never found out - and did not bother because of the wether conditions.
It was great to have a washing machine, but we missed a place (a stand or a line) to dry the clothes.
The master bed room is a fairy tale! Approx. 80 m2 with a good, big bed, two sofas and two TVs! Hollywood?
Nice view from the bathroom, but we think a light curtain in front of the ceiling-to-floor windows facing the terrasse would have been a good idea.
It was a spesial house with a woderful view - a house to remember!
We spent magnificent week in this house.
A very good starting point for height of magnificent place to be discovered.
For the novices paid special attention to the horraires of parks and activities.
The abors of the house is perfect for small stroll and the comfort is in produce you.
The home is definitely not easy to find. Given GPS coordinates, we still needed to ask people in the area for "the white house with the pool". Only one lady was able to assist.
The host was not very responsive and not easily reachable.
The home itself is as shown in the pictures.
The climate however changes drastically within a kilometer radius. The home is situated on a mountain and was very cold. The temperature was 15 degrees Celsius inside and outside of the home. Too cold to stay for a family. We booked for a whole week and stayed for 2 days due to the conditions.
There was no hot water from the kitchen or bathroom sinks except 1 bathroom. There is only cold water connected to the washing machine and the dryer is not functional. The air was so humid that the clothes would not dry and rotted after a few days of hanging on chairs.
We were provided with one bag of wet wood to burn in the fireplace which did not even last the whole evening. We purchased good burning wood elsewhere to try to keep our family warm. We wore our winter coats to keep warm along with having the fire burning.
We would definitely not return.
Beautiful house with a great view but it didn't meet our expectations with functionality or comfort.
