Response from Peter And Krista:

The cleaning fee is to launder the sheets and clean the house after you leave as well as prepare it before you arrive. It is not a maid service.

Poas is rather difficult to get to if not impossible to get to by public transportation, as a volcano craters aren't generally top priority destinations in urban planning. Renting a car, plus gas (which is about $10 a gallon in Costa Rica, tourists usually don't realize those adveritised prices are per liter not per gallon) would have been more expensive than $95.

Most hot water systems in Costa Rica do not use a boiler. Hot water is heated directly from the shower head using electricity. I'm sure Isleivin or Jairo would have been able to assist you in properly operating the shower head. The water pressure is purposefully low in showers since the water heating shower head can only heat so much water. If you attempt to pass too much water through the head, it won't heat the water.
