“Gorgeous Home- beautiful view- but lots of stairs- Monkeys, too”

This home is so beautiful. Stonework is gorgeous. The view from the balcony is incredible. We could be in the master bed and wake up to the full view of the ocean. ( the master is a bit weird- you take stairs from the inside family room to the balcony and then enter by a catwalk over the family room to the master- but it is sooo gorgeous I wouldnt have wanted it another way)There are many stairs in this house but most of the houses on that ridge are like that. This is to give a great view of the ocean. The ocean is not within walking distance- 10 min drive. Bedrooms all have bathrooms in them and air conditioning. Beds very comfortable- we slept great. Kitchen was good had all utensils needed- we cooked most of the time- unusual for me but we loved the house and wanted to chill there each day after our tours. I wish they had basic spices- only salt was there. We made smoothies each evening in the blender. We went to the grocery in Quepos 10 min away. Half the cost of the grocery around the corner. On the way from San Jose we had our driver stop at the fruit stands to get fruit- the best!!!.
Maid service was everyday- which was great. She did our dishes, made the beds, did the laundery and cleaned up. Dont forget to tip her- she works hard and was so grateful when we tipped her at the end of our stay. There is a binder of info they give you which was very helpful- wish we would have read it sooner than half way through our stay. Lots of good info.
There is a small pool with waterfall in the family room- kind of weird but very cool temp and so refreshing to our sunburns. One warning- it is close to five feet deep. I think it would not be a good choice for anyone with small children. Infinity pool outside was relaxing at the end of the day- nice to have all to ourselves. Bananas, mangoes and papayas all growing right next to the house. Monkeys come out at about 4:30 and leave by 6:00. We saw sloth, iguanas, howler monkeys but mostly white faced monkeys right at the property. We saw more at the house than in the park.
The one warning I would have about this house is that in the green season I would not recommend it. The driveway is so steep that none of our tour buses could get down it- you have to have a 4x4 and even then it is not easy. We walked to the top of the drive each day for our tours and it was a rough climb. I wouldnt want to walk it in the rain and I am in good shape. I would recommend renting a 4x4 then you would be able to get to where you want to go easier. We ended up taking the bus everywhere for .50 each ride. Bus stop a good walk away- but we liked the exercise.
Overall a great house that we rented for the cost of two average hotel rooms each day. It was sooo worth it! I would not recommend this for elderly or small children as the stairs are stone and you have to take them to get to all bedrooms and family room/kitchen.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

Liked best: The view and big balcony- we spent eves listening to the jungle sounds and looking at the stars.
Liked least: driveway climb!
