House was amazing and looked exactly like the pictures! Great amenities and well stocked. We rented a golf cart to get into town but you can get to restaurants and the beach with about a 10 minute walk. Loved our visit to Costa Rica and the house. Highly recommend it!

Great unit for large families or 2 families. We felt very comfortable and every room had its own bath. The home has a great private pool with an outdoor kitchen area that we used a lot. The AC worked great. Very walkable to the town and the beach. We would stay here again.
