The house is very nice, could use a few minor updates (patio furniture, kitchen pots/pans) but otherwise it is great. The infinity pool, shaped like a fish, overlooking the ocean, is just fabulous. The sunsets are awesome every evening. The howler monkeys are very vocal and we enjoyed them, the butterflies, birds, iguanas, and other wildlife. The TV is for DVD only, no satellite, and we had intermittent problems with the wifi. The nearest restaurant is just down the hill, Casa Caletas, and is very beautiful with a huge menu. The food is fabulous and we ate there often. The roads in this area are dirt and/or gravel and are very very rough. So be aware that a full size SUV or truck is necessary. The little village of San Francisco de Coyote is 5 km away, but takes about 20 minutes to get there. If you want to experience the real Costa Rica, this is the place. Rios is a great restaurant with outdoor seating and an extensive menu. Cafe Sante is great for sandwiches or ice cream, but we were only able to eat there once as they were closed when we were in town. The groceries are small, but adequate; we did purchase gasoline from a woman who lives near the police station. She sells it by the liter from a shed in her backyard & accepts only colons. The beach is a short drive away and is stunning. There were very few people on the beach whenever we were there. In short, if you want to disconnect, relax, reconnect to nature, and just enjoy yourself without the intrusion of the "world", this home is perfect.
