Magic Moon house is a gem in Southern Costa Rica. I was traveling alone and stayed at the house for a week. Magic Moon house is managed by Hotel Banana Azul; which is only a short walk away.
The house has two bedrooms upstairs and one bedroom downstairs. There is only exterior stairs for access from the ground level bedroom to the rest of the house. But there is a bathroom on the ground level as well as the upper level. The gardens that surround the house are meticulously cared for. There is a very sweet young woman that comes in every other day to clean. It was amazing how clean the house was given all the sand and the ocean breezes.
The house is completely outfitted with a full kitchen. I cooked one dinner there, it was too easy to walk to Banana Azul for dinner and a little socializing. They have a lunch menu with sandwiches, quesadillas etc. Three choices for dinner (normally) with salad and dessert. Majority of the dinners were pretty good. Highly recommend the guacamole and fresh chips for a great snack if you don't want a full lunch
The Banana Azul staff go above and beyond making sure your stay there is comfortable. I was going to be arriving late and in corresponding with David, had wondered about getting a bite to eat after I got in. He preordered dinner for me so I could warm it up at the house after I got settled.
The beach was beautiful and the water was warm.
A couple of things to note about the house:
There was little to no warm water for a shower. It was not an issue for me, but it is worth noting. I don't know if there was a setting somewhere that needed to get turned on (like on a water heater).
It gets dark early and there is very little light between Banana Azul and the house. It isn't desolate as there is another hotel on the same road, but it is something to be aware of.
