The property is large so you have complete privacy. However, we do live nearby, on the property. So we are available if you need us for anything. We are big on both privacy and service, and we try to find the right balance for each with all of our guests.

About the neighborhood
Nestled 1000 feet above Manual Antonio State Park in the Quepos area. It is located on the road leading to Naranjito and Via Nueva, in the direction of San Marcos. It is about 35 minutes to the beach.The property is surrounded by foothills and therefore about 5 to 10 degrees cooler than some of the more stifling areas below. A refreshing break after a hot day on the beach. It is on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica with lovely white sand beaches and many activities nearby.
How to get there
We meet you in Quepos, and then show you to the property. We generally meet you at a large store, such as Maxi Pali, so that you can shop for whatever food and supplies you may need. If you prefer that we meet your plane at the San Jose AIrport, we can do that as well for $160 each way.
