We stayed at this home for one week. It is a lovely home with great outdoor living space. Great beach access for snorkeling and fishing. The kitchen is fully equipped. There is a gas barbecue if you ask the caretakers to get it out, which we did. There were a lot of locals fishing while we were there and it was fun to experience the local culture. There is a Tiki Bar at Playa Marbella within walking distance. There was a surf competition while we were there in Playa Marbella. We purchased the majority of our groceries in Tamarindo. There is limited shopping nearby. There are cabinas for rent and a restaurant within walking distance with a great view and friendly managers. The water is hauled into the property and there is a storage tank for the water. Water conservation is important for this reason. It is a quiet location which we enjoyed. There were lots of insects, hermit crab, and geckos to watch at night on the patio . During the day we saw monkeys, birds, and lizards. This is a great place to relax and get away from it all. There is no air conditioning, hot water or wifi at the home. We found the house, beachfront setting, and activities made us want to return for another stay.
