The views from the deck were identical to the photos online!
We enjoyed our mornings there having coffee and watching the different varieties of birds.
This being our first trip to Costa Rica, we were very happy that we chose this location. Besides the stunning views, it was relatively easy access to a semi private beach, getting to the park as well as other activities and restaurants. I was able to give the condo name for pick up without problem!
We were traveling with our two college age kids. They too were impressed with the views and enjoyed afternoon naps in the hammock. The condo was cozy, but suited our needs. The bedrooms being downstairs away from upstairs living space, gave space when needed.
We did have a little difficulty getting to the condo with google maps. Sarah's directions with landmarks and the photos of the front of the property helped us reach our destination the best.
Their caretaker Bismark and his son greeted us when we arrived and helped us with luggage etc. Very pleasant whenever we saw them

The view on the balcony is breath-taking and very nice. It was wonderful with two kids to have a bedroom to ourselves. The kitchen is adequately equipped and it was nice to have ice. The restaurants and beaches are within walking distance. I saw lots of birds out the window including toucans, acari, hummingbirds, woodpeckers, and parrots. We didn't see the sloths or monkeys outside the window, but did see them on the walk to the beach.
As far as the cons:
The water did not get hot in the shower (warm at times but not hot)
Some of the noise tends to travel. We could hear motorcycles and Saturday night some awful karaoke. My biggest complaint was probably the scorpion above my daughter's bed. Yikes! My husband tried to capture it but it ran off and we didn't see it again. As far as the AC, it is only in the bedrooms, but it was cool during our visit so not an issue.
My wife and I stayed here in May of this year, it was awesome. The house was just the right size with common amenities. There is a restaurant down the road (Cant remember the name), that we ate at every day. Their breakfast was awesome. If you scroll through some of the other reviews or ask Sarah, she will tell you the name. It was definitely worth the money! This place is meant for those that can easily climb stairs, there are quite a few to get to the house. If you take a right from the front of the street, there is a hidden walkway to the beach. The only downside is the street noise is a bit much sometimes, but not enough to keep us from coming back!
Adorable place with amazing views and location. Short walk to beach & restaurants, short drive to park and town. Beds, linens and furniture all very comfortable. We only made breakfast so kitchen met our needs. Owner and caretaker prompt and easy to work with. Hopefully defined some leg muscles on the stairs up! Would definitely stay again! Also visited owners woodwork studio near San Jose - wonderful place!
