Amazing, paradise, serenity, abundance of tropical fragrance, sophistication......these are only some words that i can use to describe the stay. I will start by saying we have probably gone to most exquisite locations around the world. From Madinet Jumeirah in Dubai, the Taj in Delhi, One and Only Palmilla in Cabo, and this place is in a class of it's own. Hands down beats the environment of the four seasons down the street.
We searched for about two months for the right place, and couldn't figure out where to stay that would be away from the younger crowd and actually enjoy the environment. We did not want to stay in a hotel, because we felt that it would be easier for friends to hang out. To make it easier, i will try to categorize:
1- LOCATION: Creme de la creme of views. About a 3 minute drive to the beach (golf cart included with home). You don't actually want to be on the beach anyway, because it has much wildlife that is close by that could creep in. This has enough distance to really get a panoramic view of the peninsula.
2- DECOR: The home was immaculate. Bali infused with European modernism. Hidden 20ft doors, 50ft bedrooms, all which look the same except for the master bath. Each part of the home has a story that the owners are very much willing to share. All have US conversion plugs, so feel free to bring chargers, etc.
3- OWNERS: Patrica and Christian (who have permanently moved to Costa Rica), are the sweetest people one could meet. The kind of people that inspire you to change your life. They live right next door between the gardens. Christian who is a retired, is also a master Chef. Breakfast was 7 stars and included in the stay. A spread of eggs, bacon, exotic fruits, breads made in their own bakery, and European cheeses were enough to keep you full for the remainder of the day.
4- BEACH ACCESS: About 3 minutes with a golf cart. You can use the amenities of the four seasons, or the private beach club. We used both. They have all the rafting, snorkeling, jet skis, surfing gear available to use. Some for free.
5- SERVICE: Every day there are house keepers that clean the home and restock the fridge.
6- VIEW: Howler monkeys come by every day by the home, so you have your own tropical view to take photos.
We plan on bringing the family next time. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.
