We stayed at this beautiful spot in January. I apologize for not putting up my rave review before now.
The villa was the perfect combination of a costa rican feel with all the amenities we needed. We adored the outdoor hottub and used it every night of our stay. Oh, those star filled skies! We also used the barbecue and swimming pool and deck area daily.
The night of our arrival, Paul & Sarah arranged for a brick oven pizza to be brought to our door. We sat on our patio and drank wine and dined under the stars. Other days consisted of exploring a new beach area each morning, grabbing a late lunch somewhere in the area, then heading back to our villa for a late afternoon swim in the pool, drinks and supper under the stars, then the hottub.
We could not have been more content and will definitely return to the area for more exploring (it's wonderful) and will be staying with Paul & Sarah again. Even though this spot didn't have an "ocean view" that everyone looks for, you won't miss it. It's beautiful mountain/jungle location along a small river is great.
Paul & Sarah also have a great lunch spot, Going Bananas, on the main drag. It's well worth trying, but we dearly hope Chef's Table will be open again for our return visit.
Don't forget your 4x4 though as the drive up is not for the compact car crowd.
