As most of these reviews mention, Pavel is a great host. He knows the area and was helpful in giving us guidance to places we wanted to go and things we wanted to see. Also enjoyed just sitting and chatting with him. This place is right on the ocean, but a bit of a ways from the main road. We did find renting bicycles to be very helpful. The bungalow provides for very basic needs--nothing fancy, but you can cook, relax, etc.
Pavel is the nicest airbnb hosts I've ever had (which is saying something as everyone has been lovely so far). He really went above and beyond in helping me feel safe and connected during my stay.
The place is rather out of town - not an impossible walk (6km each way), a quick cab ride and a very doable cycle ride. I came down to work quietly - but Pavel was kind enough to let me ride into town with him a few times. And he also collected me from the bus from San Jose.
His house is behind this one and there are others on the property. All are simple places with lots of screens. This one has a wide deck that functions as a living room with views of the Caribbean Sea. I looked very hard in Costa Rica and this is definitely the closest view I could get of the ocean from an airbnb...
It's a basic place, but has all the comforts you'll need if you're not expecting fancy. Do bring lots of heavy duty bug repellent as even with screens this area is known as the 'mosquito coast' and I was quite badly bitten despite wearing bug spray all the time.
You're minutes from the beach and the dawn is gorgeous on the clean long sweep of sand that runs into Puerto Veijo in one direction and into a National Park int he other.
If you want to live quietly, near the beach and get away from it all - this place will be perfect. And you'll benefit from the warmth of such a wonderful host as Pavel
