This place is a splendid mix between comfort and secludedness where the owners, Sibylle und Jochen, ensure that you are having a wonderful time. We took our little daughter of 3 months there and she loved swinging in the hammock in the shade, long beach walks in the early mornings or staring at the amazing sunsets in the evenings. Given that the beach is 50 meters away, quick dips for the parents are not only possible in the lovely pool under the palm trees.
And there is much to explore for nature lovers: the gardener loves showing you all the animals that hide in trees and bushes and you can help the local conservationists to set free the 100s of tiny turtles or check out the plethora of fish when snorkeling around the rocks. Every evening the mix between Ticos and tourists (here about 50/50, in other beach places there is a strong expat majority) hang out in the one bar on the beach to watch the sunset and have a great fish taco. Your fully equipped kitchen allows for home cooking as well, of course, and if the 2 shops in the village do not have all you want, Sibylle and Jochen offer to bring some items from their shopping trips to Santa Cruz (if you have a car yourself, this is of course not so important). If your culinary ideas run out, do book a cooking and feasting class with Sibylle: she has opened up a café and a restaurant in Hamburg that have been among my favourites when I lived there and she will send you the recipes once you have spent a lovely afternoon marvelling at what you were able to create and learning about life in Costa Rica. High-speed internet ensures you are not cut off the outer world - but you really do not miss it at all............
