We loved our stay. The house is beautiful, the beach astoundingly close, and the neighborhood is accessible to tourists without being the least bit touristy.
We found the house clean, with a lovely double-height kitchen and large bedrooms (the master bedroom on the second floor is luxurious). Georgina, the property manager, is fast to respond. No views of the beach from the house, but it really is just steps away.
And the beach is the reason to come. Though there's a few eco-lodges and more popular spots a half mile down the road, no one ever made it to our stretch of beach, on account of a rocky outcropping that separated us from the lodges. The result: most days only one or two people in sight along a mile stretch of magnificent coastline. I collected seashells and went on long walks, my son took to running every morning.
There are a few good restaurants around, too. We especially recommend the Guacamaya Lodge for lunch & the Eco Lodge for a sunset drink. Though we came with vague aspirations of hiking and exploring beyond the immediate neighborhood, it became apparent that the good hiking was all over two hours' drive away. No worries, though, the beach was more than enough for us, especially after a visit from Juan Carlos, a local fisherman, and his tons of fresh, cheap tuna.
