Holiday Rental House
The house has only one bedroom, but a large kitchen / living area, a hallway and a bathroom with both shower and tub. It has a nice view of Turrialba volcano (about 35 km away) and it is surrounded by spectacular tropical vegetation. It's in the altitude of 600m, so it is never too hot. There are several very small villages in the area, with friendly 'natives' - not many of them speaking English though (needless to say, they speak Spanish). The immediate neighbours though (each living at about 100 yards from the house) are all English speaking expats. Reaching the nearest small city (Turrialba) takes about 1 hour by bus, 25 minutes by car. Note that Costa Rica is an exceptionally well-run, democratic and peaceful country (they don't even have an army - a noble example for the rest of us!)....The house has only one bedroom, but a large kitchen / living area, a hallway and a bathroom with both shower and tub.

Please keep in mind that the property is more than 2 km off the main road, so a rental car, a bicycle, or willingness to do a lot of walking is a must (taxi is also available). A strong Wi-Fi signal provided by a friendly neighbour.More

About the neighbourhood
The house is located on a former coffee plantation made into a gated community of several Canadian/American families. There is a decent road access to it; it is about 2km from the nearest bus stop (buses go every half hour, if not more often). There is a big river nearby (rafting). To get there, one has to take Highway 10 from Turrialba towards Siguirres. 26 km later one reaches a small town of Tres Equis (XXX in English!), and turns left, following a country road for about 3km. At the end of it is a tiny village of La Flor; turning left again, 500 meters later one reaches the 'plantation' (as I like to call it), which is on the left side of the road. Enter 9.95, -83.597 on Google Maps to see the exact location (the green arrow will point to the roof of the house).
