The owners did an amazing job of building this new home and then setting this place up in a perfect way for renters. Things are still very new, which is a bonus and they seem to care about attention to detail. The property is more remote, so perfect if you don't want to be in the hustle and bustle of a bigger city, but you can still drive about 30 minutes to Tamarindo. You can boogie board right on the beach with smaller and very consistent waves and either go to a local restaurant 5 to 15 minutes away or make your own stuff in their gourmet kitchen. The horseback riding place is two doors down and not to be missed! You can do a sunset, sunrise, lunch and even a river excursion with the horses that includes even traveling in the water if you want...something unheard of in the U.S. these days. We kept meaning to eat at other places, but the Guacamayan resort is just too darn tasty, so most of our meals out where at that beautiful hilltop place. It feels very safe there, but they also have an alarm and take good precautions, so there is no worries. The pool is small, but all you need for quick dunking in the hot sun or at night, since it is right on the 2nd floor balcony. All and all, a dreamy place that lives up to its amazing reputation!
