We stayed here on Super Bowl Sunday the night before flying home. George told us to make ourselves at home and he meant it. He has a large comfortable house with two rooms with sitting areas and our room had a very comfortable bed. A friend of his came over and they prepared a large variety of food for a Super Bowl party which they freely shared with another couple and us. Even though we had an early flight and were up at 5 a.m. he was up with a pot of coffee going and called us a taxi. The atmosphere was very low key and laid back meaning if you wanted to interact that was ok and if you wanted to find a quiet spot by yourself that was ok too. Will definitely return on our next visit to Costa Rica. One warning though: This is a residential neighborhood and if you don't have a car it's maybe a 15-20 minute walk to the nearest restaurants.
