I am a Canadian resident from Vancouver who has lived in Costa Rica for 7.5 years. I own a small hotel called Banana Azul and travel frequently. I am a single gay man of 50 years.
So great to have Colin stay at my place. He was great with communication and left my place in immaculate condition, even left the umbrella in the same spot after his rainy week in Vancouver (sorry about the rain Colin!) I'll definitely reach out to Colin next time I'm in his new home of Costa Rica. It was an absolute pleasure to have Colin and he's welcome in my home anytime he wants to come back to the ole westend of Vancouver.
It was a pleasure to host Colin. He treated our home as if it was our own and left it clean & tidy. He was easy to connect with and very easy going. I am envious of his little piece of paradise in Costa Rica and he was quick to invite us and assured us he would look after us :D thx Colin! I would have no hesitation hosting him again or to anyone else that he may call on.
Colin was very easy going, relax, lay back type of person. No rush, No hurry, Take it easy type of a guy:)
He kept my place clean, neat & tidy. I highly recommend him to anyone house not just only mine. :)
Of course he is welcome to come back to Vancouver and stay my place as long he wants.
Thank you for staying at my place Colin.

It was a joy to meet and talk to Colin and he was also the perfect guest. He was very clean and quiet during his stay and he was nice to communicate with. I would highly recommend Colin and I would love to host him again.
Colin is such a friendly and thoughtful person to deal with. He was extremely accommodating, and left my place in an immaculate state - thank you! I would welcome him back any time:)
Colin is an excellent guest; highly-recommended! Five stars! Took care of the apartment like his own. Looking forward to having him back.
I have known Colin for several years, since I moved to Costa Rica. He is a great person. He is kind, caring and has a strong sense of right and wrong. He is also a very good businessman. You can see this in his hotel, Banana Azul. The place is just beautiful - the gardens, the rooms the general ambience. And I know Colin has put a great deal of work into making Banana Azul one of the nicest places in Puerto Viejo. I give him a very positive reference.
