This house is beautiful and has none of the faux-Costa-Rican kitsch of some of the other houses I've stayed in or looked at. Clean, elegant and beautifully appointed. The stone and tile work on the floors, walls and ceilings are works of art! The terrace and edge pool are spectacular, as is the view. The house just up the hill is quite close and there was a noisy family there on one of the days of our two-week stay, but otherwise it was perfectly serene. We've met the owner who takes great interest in keeping the house maintaining the house. He totally remodeled it in 2010 (we were the first tenants after the remodeling) and they did a superb job. RPM was always very responsive to any issues that came up (as they will, invariably, in Costa Rica). We've rented this house two years in a row and will certainly be back again. The road up the hill to the house is only partially paved. Having a good 4WD rental car is always a good idea (we rented a Daihatsu Bego from Budget near the Liberia airport).

Casa Pipilacha was a beautiful home and we are all glad we choose this home.
The drive up is in traditional Costa Rica style with dirt roads and a slight hill to climb. The road is easily passed and extremely short, however a small 4x4 might be needed to get into the driveway. The entrance is amazing and very inviting. One step inside and you can tell this is a well built and well styled home. Beautiful finishes in the kitchen, as well as two great bedrooms both with en suite bathrooms with large private showers. Walking out onto the patio you are engulfed in the view. A wonderful 180 degree view of coastline and the downtown strip. A couple steps down and you're entering the pool, overlooking miles of ocean. Or choose sun or shade in multible different sun bathing or shaded gathering areas. When you combine a beautiful view, large swimming pool, high quality furniture inside and out, and A/C and ocean views from every room you get Casa Pipilacha.
You will be happy you choose Pipilacha and you'll be ready to go back as soon as you leave.
