    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    The house has only one bedroom, but a large kitchen / living area, a hallway and a bathroom with both shower and tub. It has a nice view of Turrialba volcano (about 35 km away) and it is surrounded by spectacular tropical vegetation. It's in the altitude of 600m, so it is never too hot. There are several very small villages in the area, with friendly 'natives' - not many of them speaking English though (needless to say, they speak Spanish). The immediate neighbours though (each living at about 100 yards from the house) are all English speaking expats. Reaching the nearest small city (Turrialba) takes about 1 hour by bus, 25 minutes by car. Note that Costa Rica is an exceptionally well-run, democratic and peaceful country (they don't even have an army - a noble example for t... more

My wife and I rented this house for the entire month of September, 2013. After one week we vacated the house September 7th, and spent two nights in a hotel in Turrialba before returning the key to the property manager.

At the time we rented the house the rent was $20 per day or $300 per month. As I write this review it is September 12th. At this time the house is still rented to me and presumably vacant, but I will not return.

The house was NOT really clean when we arrived. I swept the floors three times before the borrowed broom stopped picking up.

Is it a Gated community? Well, there is a gate down by the road. I never saw it closed much less locked, and it offers no pretense of security.

Although this house cannot be secured, the property manager, who lives just up the hill, has a very sophisticated alarm system and, we observed, carefully locks ALL of his doors.

AT THE TIME WE WERE THERE, the house could not be secured.
