We were met at the grocery store in Coco by the homeowner, Sterling. He was very friendly and welcoming, and he led us back to the house, which is high up the hill.
The main house is very much as pictured. The side facing the water is all windows and the pool area is lovely! Sterling watered the plants daily, so they were lush and green.
It is possible to walk from the house to the beach, but it would be quite a work out, especially in the hot July sun.
We did have some issues with the cleanliness of the house when we arrived. The caretaker, Robert, handled them quickly, bringing in a full cleaning crew. That made our stay much more comfortable.
There were 6 of us, so we also arranged rental of the guest cottage. It was not in sufficient shape to serve as a rental property. The homeowner is currently living in the cottage, so his clothes were on the open shelves, and tables full of tools and other personal effects covered with old sheets lined the walls. The bathroom appeared to be under construction. We spent just one night there. The next day Robert arranged for a mattress and we stayed the rest of our trip sleeping on the floor in the main house's living room. Our friends graciously shared their private bathrooms in the main house with us.
Overall, we were very happy with our trip to Costa Rica, and our accommodations at Spyglass House. We would recommend it to groups of 4 or less.
Lindy, thank you for the positive review and mentioning that Sterling was friendly and keeps the grounds lush and green .Coco in general is dry, and dust gets in homes here just after cleaning . Our staff and myself are always happy to make a visit to any of the properties we care for to freshen them up and make guests stay much more comfortable as you mentioned .
I myself thank you for staying with us and I have the utmost respect for teachers and think that it was a treat to be your host .
Sterling will probably limit stays to just the main house .I asked him to allow your group to stay and to make an exception to allow 6 (website hidden) the past we were both thanked by a mom who needed the guest house and it worked out great and she wanted to hug (website hidden) your case we learned only use it in a pinch and probably better to not offer it .
Traveler Tip *Always ask host to rectify any cleaning that is needed .
The BBQ Grill is now added to my list of items to check prior to guest's arrival thanks to your input .
The house is magnificent and without parallel; it is located in a secure area surrounded by other large estates. Robert helped me reach the house with good directions. Be aware and careful, as the road to Ocotal is small and busy (and GPS gives strange directions). After visiting the house, I regret not booking a longer stay. Unfortunately, my Costa Rica experience was divided into three different segments (Jaco, Arenal, Guanacaste), and this was the last before my trip back to the states.
Stirling (the owner), lives close by and is a gracious host.
Daniel stayed at the Beautiful Spyglass House and his review is how I see the house everytime I am there . The owner takes pride in the upkeep of this magnificent home . We try to have the new BIC starting pistols for BBQ lighting and will make sure there are more of them in the house . Thanks for the tip .
Just to begin Robert, the host was the best ive encountered on AirBnb so far. He Was very attentive and responded to all my needs prior to my arrival. As far as the house is concerned it is perfect. The view is amazing and we truly enjoyed staying here. The house has all the amenities needed and if anything Was missing Robert Was a phone Call away. The best part about the house i have to say is the fact it has its own pool.
The Spyglass House is our very best property . This home makes you feel like you are staying in a mansión .Thank you Samuel for the positive review and giving the SPYGLASS HOUSE a perfect rating .The infinity pool was built by a profesional pool builder with 50 plus years experience at building pools .

About the Host, Robert
I live in Costa Rica and like to visit other hosts in different countries . I meet with my family who take cruise ships to large ports . When my family arrives at any port I will be contacting other Airbnb hosts to enjoy your area a day or two ..
I love watching wildlife , everything from birds to seals , to whales and otters .
I travel the world to see the earth's
beautiful scenery and uninhabited areas . My favorite place in Costa Rica is Drakes Bay . Sir Francis Drake said Florida is the fountain of youth but Drake's Bay is the pearl of the world .
I enjoy hosting guests and introducing them to the fun things to do here in Costa Rica .
