Great location for the casual traveller: an easy walk to all amenities and an easy drive to most of Costa Rica`s points of interest.
Excellent climate in 2500 feet of altitude - no AC required as would be on the coast.
A very comfortable, complete and charming house in a gated and guarded community in a low density area with pool and garden - birds, fruits and butterflies abound.
The manager was helpful and responsive. This house exceeded my expectations and we have been very happy and relaxed there !

Reviewed August 24, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

It is a nice house with a good kitchen. However it is NOT really a 3 bed/3 bath home. What was likely an office had the desk and computer replaced with a bed and dresser. That room had to use the 1/2 bath in the living area... So it is a converted 2 bedroom house with 2-1/2 bath. And the neighborhood has an excess of barking dogs - the neighbor must have at least 4 dogs who we quite vocal even late at night. And bedroom #2 has a futon rather than a real bed. And most surprising of all - not a single ceiling fan in the whole house! All they had was a box fan with a broken support leg and a tiny fan that was completely useless. The one radio/jam box did not play any radio stations so bring CD's for music. But it is very convenient to Atenas, just outside downtown.

Management response:

Flipkey/Tripadvisor terminology explicitly rates 1/2 bathrooms as full bathrooms. 1 bedroom is multifunctional and can either be used as office or as bedroom or both - according to requirements. Ceiling fans on a 17 feet high ceiling are technically impossible and would estetically be an insult. The house, however, has a screened variable loofer system in all rooms - so...
