“Best view in Town”
Reviewed 2 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Truly the best view in town! The house was exactly as pictured. Very basic but functional and comfortable. The a/c in the bedrooms was a blessing, the humidity is killer. The wifi didn't work during our stay but the entire town was having varying degrees of trouble with it. I enjoyed the week of disconnect! The house is right at the edge of town, which is a pro for getting supplies, going to the different restaurants, and getting to tour meeting places but also a con as typical life goes on with the sounds of daily living (building, music, dirt bikes). We had a variety of birds, including a parrot and couple of scarlet macaws visit the yard, as well as a resident iguana, and a bat sleeping for the day on the fence. I did have a little trouble getting a hold of the owners during the week or so before arrival which made me a little nervous but all was good. The owner and the caretaker, Hank, checked in now and then from the house next door and were helpful without being at all intrusive. Overall, very satisfied with everything and would recommend this house.

“Over priced, beautiful view, inaccurate info.”

$75.00 a night is too much for a minimally furnished bungalow. No comfortable seating inside or out. Not enough fans, it is hot, worse you are not told electricity does go out for hours and days. If you have to have electricity for instance for a medical condition beware. A generated should be provided, air-conditioning is a must at that price. It is primitive camping with walls.

Management Response
3 Jul 2015
The guest stayed for 2 nights of her 15 night reservation. Drakes Bay had a power failure and she was unable to use her C-pap machine for her severe sleep apnea and requested a refund. Because of her medical condition we suggested that she find a large hotel with a back up generator and refunded her money, less 2 nights rent and the Trip Advisor Service Fee, promptly to her PayPal Account. For some reason she found it necessary to make us wrong.

Great place to stay. We had scarlet macaws in the tree in the backyard nearly every day. Great views of the ocean with an easy walk to restaurants, grocery markets, and the beach. The house is well equipped with fans, which really help with the heat and humidity. The wifi signal was better here than at the hotel we stayed in at San Jose near the airport. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

Our family of 5 (adults) traveled to Drake Bay for Thanksgiving vacation. The house was easy to book. We were greeted at the beach after our boat ride from Sierepe and taken to the house. The house was perfect for us . Beautiful view and everything we needed.
