The place is lovely, on a quiet residential street about a mile north of the area of shops and restaurants. It is essentially one half of a duplex, but felt very much like its own private house. There's only one row of houses between this house and the beach, so you can glimpse the ocean from the house, though the public access point is about a block north. We loved living next door to a local Mexican family who sell their breads, eggs, and honey at the weekly farmers market on the plaza. There are children in the area and it seemed like an extremely safe street for them to run around and play in.
The house is a simple two-bedroom, two-bathroom with a basic kitchen and living space. Most windows are screened, and although the screens aren't perfectly insect-proof, there's a constant sea breeze so we didn't see too many mosquitoes. We enjoyed having a shady front yard in which to eat breakfast and read. The back of the house faces the woods, so we were awoken at dawn every morning by extremely loud birds. We could have closed the windows and used the air conditioning units, but as the temperatures were mainly in the 80s all week, we wanted as much fresh air as possible.
Getting to town: you can take a 25 minute walk down the beach (which always has some pedestrians even at night, and felt very safe), walk the same distance on the road (slightly faster walking on a firm surface, but no official shoulder for pedestrians), take Florencia's two bikes (about 8 minutes to town; we loved these and were very grateful to have them!), or use car/taxi. We felt safe with any of these options as a group. Walking by beach or road does require passing a long stretch of jungle/woods where there are no houses or people -- I (a female traveler) did this walk/jog alone once and had no problem, but realized afterwards that it was a risky and foolhardy thing to do without knowing the area better.
All in all, a delightful stay -- we loved eating out in the downtown area, but it was also fun to load up on tropical fruit and local snacks at the many great little markets and then spend many happy hours relaxing at the house and swimming/strolling in our own little neighborhood. A perfect getaway for a small group who wants more privacy, flexibility, and DIY adventures than a hotel can offer. Florencia was extremely gracious and easy to work with -- met us at our requested time even though it was later than a typical check-in (6 pm) and gave us a comprehensive tour, and then let us stay as long as we wanted on our check-out day because there were no guests arriving until the following day. We are very grateful for her hospitality.
