When you factor in all the benefits this house offers, you're going to come up short looking for a better place. Its centrally located in arguably the best part of town because you are but a couple minute walk to anything you need. Supermarket, restaurants and bakeries, surf shops, vehicle rentals, tourism center, beaches, yoga studios... basically anything you could need is within 5min walk. The closest surf break, Playa Santa Teresa has probably the best and most consistent surf in the area. Plus it isn't too crowded. The house itself is huge, with a very large open space upstairs with couches/hammocks/ping pong/bar/fridge/stereo. Pictures don't do justice to how cool it looks. Outside has just as much space, with hammocks/pool/charcoal grill/bar area. Rooms have AC, and the kitchen is a decent size with all the appliances you would need to cook for larger groups. The Jungle House is nestled right in the jungle (go figure) with frequent visitors of howler monkeys and iguanas. Joe is also awesome and a huge help with everything. He helped us organize and arrange for a number of things including taxis, excursions, fresh fish delivery, airport shuttle, and anything else that we should see/eat/do in the area. He is always just an email or phone call away, and you'll more than likely run into him around town. For a group of 7, this house was perfect, and could easily fit many more comfortably. Again, you'd be hard pressed to find a better place that will fit lots of people, is not insanely expensive and is so perfectly located. A truly unique home in an idyllic location.
