“Perfect Place to Stay in Quepos”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

This is a great place to stay if you are visiting Manuel Antonio. Gretel, the owner, is super-friendly and helpful. The apartment is very clean, nicely decorated, has hot water, comfortable beds, great selection of tv channels, full kitchen and strong wi-fi. I was a bit worried at first when I did not see air conditioning, but the apartment does not get hot during the day and it cools down enough at night where fans are sufficient. It is right at the edge of the jungle/mountains and since it is a bit elevated you can get really close to the monkeys, which we saw and fed quite a bit. It takes just a few minutes to walk into the center of Quepos and the bus stop to get to Manuel Antonio is just a couple minutes walking. Overall, this is a great place to stay and I highly recommend it.

Brunxu apartment was the perfect match for my husband & me to stay while in Quepos, Costa Rica. We lucked out when we found it online. Grettel & Carlos made it easy to reserve with a deposit via Western Union. We were nervous about this at first, but soon arrived to find they are a wonderful and trustworthy family. They went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and experience the culture of Costa Rica during our 3 month stay.
The building is the last house on the street located just outside of main town before the big hill to Manuel Antonio park/beach. It is approximately a 10 minute walk to town and a 5 minute walk to the closest bus stop to the beach. There is a staircase up a hill to reach the building and another up if you are on the second floor.
The studio apartment was clean, modern, furnished with all necessities for daily living. The balcony included a table and chairs with a view of the town, jungle, ocean, and neighbor yards/gardens. The balcony & roof was ideal for spotting loads of animals including a variety of birds (hummingbirds, tanagers, motmot, vulture, parrots & more!), monkeys (capuchin white face & titi), sloth, and squirrels. The roof is flat with rails which are perfect for drying laundry & wet beach towels. There is a wash machine available for use, which was SOOOO handy! They let us use the grill when we wanted. Although the apartment did not have air conditioning, we were accustomed to the weather and the frequent breeze kept the air moving. There is a ceiling fan inside to help as well.
As you would expect, there are bugs in Costa Rica. We experienced ants & spiders in the apartment. They were not a problem as long as we made sure the screens stayed closed & all food was sealed & cleaned up. The ceiling leaked once after we had a few days of bad storms. Carlos and friends were fast to examine the roof and ceiling to fix the problem, which we did not have again.
We loved every moment of our stay at Brunxu Apartments and will never forget the warm hospitality received. Many fond memories and photos will help us to remember these good times. If you plan to visit Quepos and would like the privacy of your own apartment, the warmth and safety of staying with family, and the beautiful nature of the Pacific coast of Costa Rica; then we would highly recommend you stay here.

Room Tip: The studio has a BASIC kitchen with necessities. The two bedroom has a FULL kitchen.
