Thank you for writing a very descriptive & helpful review on our home. Since you stayed at the house for 2 months, we really value your comments. You were such a pleasant guest to have at Casa Laguna Rica. I know the staff enjoyed having you as well. I want to clarify the point you made in your comment about the utilities/washer and dryer. Since you were a long term renter, these additional costs applied to your rental. If you had stayed 1-2 weeks, you would not have had these costs. The washer & dryer is typically is not made available to renters. Although you may hear some movement from the upstairs guests, the downstairs is a bit more private & convenient with two patios and direct access to the pool & backyard. It was wonderful to hear how much you enjoyed the peaceful backyard, & the neighborhood with it's proximity to the beach. We hope to have you back as a guest soon. Pura Vida!
