We rented this vacation rental for a week's stay in Guanacaste, Costa Rica... It is less than 10 minutes from Playa Hermosa beach notorious for dark brown soft sands. The owner was very accommodating to our needs and was available by phone for any questions we had. We had a large reunion party that made his home away from our home in the US - a base for all of our activities during the week! (We also booked another property to accommodate the remainder of our party, which was within walking distance)

As stated this was a 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom property, with the additional secluded mother-in-law apartment attached to the home fully equipped with another kitchen. Everything was immaculate and we were met by the property management folks (english speaking) that gave us a tour before we began utilizing the premises to the fullest. The driveway parking allowed for 4 vehicles very easily! The driveway is a little bit steep, but once you have some practice very easy to maneuver! The restroom facilities were very clean, and towels and soap were provided. The showers are modernly tiled, and in the master bedroom upstairs has a separate large tub. All beds had the softest cotton sheets and comforters, and was very homely. In the kitchen contains a microwave, toaster, large fridge, juicer, blender, glass top stove on an island, granite counter tops, sink and dishwasher. Outside near the pool had a lot of furniture to lounge and relax. There are flat screen tvs in all of the rooms. While there wasn't a TV in the main living room, we simply moved the one from the second bedroom downstairs (pull out sofa - very comfortable to sleep on). There is a second master bedroom located downstairs which came in really handy. And there is an outside shower to wash off from the pool. While the pictures on TripAdvisor gives you a good idea, if you are able to get to the vacation rental website, there is a video that provides a lot more insight and really gave us a feel for how the rental would be.

Spectacularly awesome views looking directly to the Pacific Ocean, and a part time maid that helped us cook, clean daily, and laundry! Safety wasn't a worry, as this home is located in a gated community. The pool was perfect for volleyball and jacuzzi was awesome for relaxing sore muscles after many days full of activity and excursions.

As an added bonus, while we did a lot of research on TripAdvisor for fresh fruit markets, and adventurous excursions, the property management folks knew and put us into direct contact with excursion trips that were very reasonably priced for our party of 15 during the week! (not limited to: boat trips, snorkeling, ziplining, horseback riding, and even a chiropractor/massuese team - which we called back on several occasions!)

There are quite a few restaurants nearby as well that have great ratings via TripAdvisor. Ginger is less than two minutes away. There is a Supermarket just five minutes away to get the basic essentials as well. The directions to get to this location were fairly straightforward, though if you pass the Ginger restaurant you've gone too far!

This was the first time we did a vacation rental, and it definitely won't be our last!
