My husband and I had a fantastic experience with this property and would definitely return - there's a lot more Costa Rica to see, and this house is a great location to use as a base camp! It's pretty centrally located to many nearby attractions, and you can take little trips out if you want to get some variety - beach, cloud forest, wildlife preserve, etc. Or you can stay put, as the sun, mountains, and solitude are pretty great, too!
The view, the house itself, the amenities, the adjacent property manager - all combined to make this a place you won't regret renting. Every detail has already been thoughtfully considered, and if we didn't feel like doing something ourselves (such as driving, grocery shopping, or cooking), there was always the option to hire someone to help out. If you get a chance, take up the offer of local itinerary suggestions, or take one of the famous back roads tours - this is something we didn't have time for but will do next time.
Do take the owners' advice if you decide to rent a car - rent a 4x4 vehicle to get here, as the pavement runs out about 30 minutes east of the house. This was actually changing as we left, and road crews were working on paving some sections.
Enjoy your stay! I'm glad this was our first CR experience - it means we're very likely to come back!
