Great house, a lot of things need to be update We had a great stay, the house is gorgeous, (exactly like in the pictures), the communication with the admins was great, we had a little problem at the beginning but they arrived quickly the next day to fix it. Overall this is a very nice place with a very good location. However, if you’re the type of person that would like to stay a few hours late in bed in the mornings, or if you can’t sleep without a good AC, then you might reconsider this place.. None of the windows had blackout curtains, there were some windows on the bedrooms without them completely so the lights at 5am are right in your eyes. Also the ACs are not well positioned so the whole house may be very hot by noon (we used the pool by this time) because of the windows. There was one bathroom with a very bad smell on the tubes and one of the bedrooms doesn’t even have walls 😅 Don’t get me wrong, I would return but taking a sleep mask and a fan 😅

Excelente lugar y ubicación, mi familia y yo disfrutamos muchísimo del lugar, pudimos visitar varias playas cercanas, excelente atención y flexibilidad al momento del ingreso ya que viajamos de largo. Ambiente familiar y privado, la piscina e instalaciones super lindas.

Great location with amazing views! We absolutely loved staying at this property! It was exactly what we were looking for. We were in very close proximity to several beaches. The restaurants in the local town were great. Amazing views from this spot. The pool was great in the late afternoon when we get back from being gone all day to sit and watch the sunset and have a cocktail. The iguanas on the property made my kids extremely happy and they fed them bananas every day. We loved spending time here and felt very safe as there was a security alarm, and a gate to the property as well as a gated entrance to the road it was located on. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a nice relaxing stay in the mountains by the ocean.
