The Apartment exists out of two bedrooms, one shower/toilet/sink-room, one living room/kitchen. It is surrounded with a balcony that provides a bit of ocean view but mostly green surroundings! Monkey's ever so often.
One bedroom has AC and fan, one has fan, living room has fan.
Kitchen is basic but fully equipped with a gas stove/oven, coffeemaker,(Costa Rican coffee is the best!) etc. No microwave as I don't like to nuke my food.
The house is built out of concrete (lot's of wood eating bugs here) and has a contemporary look but is very cosy.
If you walk down the hill you are right in the heart of town and also right on the beach. (2-3 minute walk) Super markets, restaurants and surf shops galore. Bank, medical center and tattoo shop. Really just about anything that you might need. In the street at the bottom you can rent an ATV and also book tours. Taxi's are a phone call away.
The beach is a famous surf beach especially because it always breaks!
I wouldn't recommend to use the busses but much more to rent an ATV/car or get a taxi. Bicycles will get you far.
My place is especially nice because you are super close to everything but you still feel you are in the jungle. It is also super safe.
Have a wonderful time first of all!
Don't keep up the neighborhood at night.
Leave the place as you found it.
This was my first time booking through Airbnb and I am very grateful to Niqui for how helpful she was in making this process so easy. Even though Niqui was out of Costa Rica during the time that my friends, 11 month old daughter and I visited, everything was arranged exactly as she said it would. She was available and responsive to any questions I had and her place was perfect for the longer term stay that we enjoyed. Her place felt like our home and tempted us all to move to Costa Rica ourselves! Thank you Niqui!
