We are grateful to Laura and Bob for sharing their slice of paradise. We were looking for secluded spot with a pool and on the beach and we certainly found it. The house is beautiful. We loved the layout. The kitchen is well-equipped and you’ll want for nothing. There are some great photos on VRBO, but, as someone else mentioned, the property is even more beautiful in person. You will see various birds, lizards, frogs and crabs, sometimes up close! The beach has plenty of trees that provided shade if you need to seek relief from the sun. The sunsets were amazing!
The grocery stores close by have plenty for what we need and the restaurants are incredible. We've enjoyed Hotel Playa Negra & Guacamaya Lodge. We went into Villarreal to Come Fruta on Mary's suggestion for fresh produce. Mary also booked us on the river boat tour that included the pottery demonstration. Huge fan of the boat tour and the lunch after was just delicious- you won’t be disappointed. We highly recommend you read through the book at the house when you arrive as they have compiled great information there. We downloaded Google maps before we left the USA and it worked like a charm. The surrounding roads can be rough and we were glad to have an SUV to navigate them. While out exploring the area, we spotted some howler monkeys and they can be heard (but not seen by us) from the house.
We would be remiss if we didn't mention Felice, the cat! He was never very far and we loved having him around.
