“Perfect place for a family vacation”
Reviewed 10 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

The house is really beautiful in the quiet bay of Playa Ocatal. The bedrooms were well appointed and the pool was first rate. Max was most comfortable communicating via email but he really helped meet the many needs of my family, including finding us a wonderful woman who, along with her daughter, helped tidy up each day and cook a terrific homemade meal. The club access that comes with the house is also quite nice. We were traveling with a 2 and 4 year old and they loved being able to bounce from pool to pool.

A few things to note if you are considering the trip. The kitchen is small and doesn't have every bell and whistle though we found it very adequate. The third bedroom in the main house is very tight but has a comfortable bed. May not be quite big enough for an adult couple and both bathrooms in the main house are off the other two bedrooms which means whoever stays in the third room needs to go through one of the two bedrooms to use a bathroom. Also, the driving all over is not bad but you must be comfortable with going up and down steep hills. The driveway into the house is very steep and turning around at the top is tight.

Overall we would HIGHLY recommend this house and will indeed visit again when we decide to go back. Costa Rica is a beautiful country and a seemingly progressive one as well. The lighthouse was the perfect place to call home while we were there.

“Beautiful location, lovely house”

First, the good:
The house itself is lovely. The views are fantastic, the pool a delight. Beds are comfortable, and the showers are wonderful. There is one bar/restaurant, as well as the beach within a reasonable walk (5-10 minutes, though very hilly), along with a pace where you can book water tours (snorkeling, fishing, etc.). We didn't lack for basics in the kitchen, and basic toiletries/linens were provided.

The owner was very responsive when we had questions, and we really enjoyed our stay.

The negative:
The house, especially the kitchen, is actually quite small, with little common area (though the outdoor area is VERY usable). The fourth bedroom is quite small, and lacks air conditioning, so sleeping with the door closed in that room is not really feasible. The water went out at least twice while we were there, albeit for 20 minutes or less. Also, while towels were provided, there were not enough for every person to have two- one for the pool and one for the shower. And yes, they did know how many of us were coming.

These complains are minor, and are only relayed to provide complete information to would- be renters. Overall, the home was lovely, and I would absolutely consider staying there again if I came back to the Coco/Ocotal area. Tip: A car would be extremely helpful. There isn't much in Ocotal, and Coco would be a long walk.

Breathtaking views, excellent location and unusually good build quality for Costa Rica.
Please is brand new and well worth the money, we absolutely loved it.
The only regret is that we had to leave.
