I loved manzanilla, what an amazing little place. The house was beautiful, great balcony. Very quiet, can watch the toucans from the porch. Cara the caretaker for the house was very helpful. I didn't really get to know Andrew, simply because I never hooked up my cellphone. He made it clear if I needed anything I just needed to ask. I didn't need anything. Had an amazing month with my son.
Andrew was a great host. My girlfriend and I stayed for 5 nights. He picked us up from the shuttle and took us to the rental. We had dinner at his restaurant the first night and he even called us a cab home as we were not yet familiar with the area. He is a good source of information and provided excellent recommendations.
The property was as described and we had no issues. We would not hesitate to stay again.
My family and I enjoyed 3 weeks over xmas and New Year's at Andrew's place. It is nestled in the rain forest yet walking distance to one if the better beaches in the area. We saw lots of wildlife including howler monkeys, toucans, red frogs, and beautiful butterflies just to name a few. The house is equipped with everything you would need for a comfortable stay. Andrew was very friendly and full of helpful information about the area. We also enjoyed a wonderful xmas dinner at his great restaurant, Chile Rojo. We had a great time and hope to visit again.
Andrew was very helpful both before the booking and prior to our arrival and during our stay we were looked after by the caretaker, Cara, who went above and beyond in fulfilling our requests and answering our questions. We even had regular deliveries of filtered water which was a nice touch.
The property itself is lovely, with a great homey feel and the outdoor dining area was delightful in the warm balmy evenings.
We were a family of five, and this house accommodated us well, without feeling like we were on top of one another.
Also, very well-stocked kitchen - great if you like cooking.
Highly recommended property.
One thing I would like to mention is that, despite what the listing states, there is no washing machine or TV. This is not of huge concern but worth noting if you arrive with dirty laundry or are staying longer than a week.
Andrew was really nice and it all went as planned.
The House is set in a very natural environment. Perfect for people who love the nature.
Andrew was great! Has was just as adverstised, and Andrew was a great host. I highly recommend.
Andrew was very helpful and made us feel welcome. We enjoyed a week of birdwatching (great from the front porch), dive certification, and sightseeing. We were most grateful for the comfortable mattress, screens, on-demand hot water and fans in the rooms and on the porch. It is a very quiet setting with jungle next to the property. Saw a sloth and heard monkeys in addition to colorful birds from the porch. If you are driving, a vehicle with a higher clearance would be helpful as the lane into the cabin is quite rough. We had a problem with the front door sticking/handle broken off which Andrew fixed very promptly. Clotheslines on the front porch are very helpful. Two dogs are a bit rowdy, but are great watchdogs and add greatly to the security in the fenced property. Listening to the rain and tree leaves on the metal roof was a fun experience.
Andrew was really helpful. We actually arrived earlier and gave him a call and he made everything in his power to make us feel welcomed. He gave us a lift to the house (deeply appreciated given our luggage) and a considerable discount in the restaurant he owns! (check it out!)
The house is a bit away from the town but with a really nice beach close by and you are surrounded by tropical forest!
Great place and great host!
Would definitely come back for a longer stay.
A la casa llegue junto con mi hijo, mi esposo y mis padres nos sentimos totalmente a gusto y en casa. La propiedad se encuentra internada y rodeada por la naturaleza, esta totalmente equipada, limpia y en perfecto estado. Andrew es un excelente anfitrión, estuvo pendiente de nosotros y nos hizo sentir parte de la familia. En la propiedad viven dos hermosos perros, que llegaban a visitar en las horas de la mañana y funcionaban como guardianes de la propiedad en la noche. Sin duda alguna recomiendo este apartamento, para cualquiera que este interesado en conocer el caribe sur, y quiere estar cerca de puerto viejo centro, y de playa cocles pero sin perder la comodidad y la paz de un hogar.
Andrew makes for a great host at both his rental home and his restaurant. He's happy to provide any information you might need, and his two dogs provide company when he is at the restaurant and they also provide a level of security as they are standing guard over the property. They are very friendly and they take well to being played with and petted. The home is a two bedroom one bath and my son and I have no complaints about the beds or the overall home itself. We truly enjoyed sitting outside to eat and drink every evening and the bugs were easy to deal with as most evenings it was just perfect for sitting outside and enjoying the evening. This is a jungle setting on a dead end road up the side of a mountain so there is virtually no traffic that goes by the home. We always felt safe and secure as we left things lay out while we went out. The home is a rustic setting but the peacefully sounds around makes you enjoy being there.
Ikuko and Andrew were great guests, very interesting. I loved hearing about their restaurant, Chil Rojo, in Puerto Viejo in the Caribe. Thai food is very rare in Costa Rica so it could be worth a trip to Puerto Viejo just to check it out! They also have places to rent in the area, something to explore as well.
I look forward to having them back.
