The communal rancho is great for meeting up with visiting guests and sharing stories of the days events. Crystal clear waters in our pool and spa, sundeck with over stuffed pillows. Iguanas, geckos, butterflies, hummingbirds are all found within our very secured walled grounds. My favourite pastime each morning-----A fresh cup of Costa Rican coffee while walking on the meandering elevated boardwalk through the gardens, I am always amazed with the large varieties of tropical flowers. I still find new ones I've never seen before. In addition our boutique orchard has mangos, papaya, coconuts, bananas, limes, lemons, naranjas, guava, and of course my favourite chillies. Guests are encouraged to harvest and enjoy our fruits. Our property is run like a resort and the caretakers Francisco and Marling will ensure that your stay is unforgettable providing housekeeping, laundry, pool and ground maintenance as well as 24-hour security. A perfect balance of total private resort with the opportunity to meet fellow travelers. One-minute walk to the Beach, guests often return their rental cars once they arrive when you find paradise why leave At night the boardwalk and gardens light up creating intriguing, romantic hideaway. 15 Restaurants within a 5 to 10-minute walk 3 of which are on the beach, 3 18 hole golf courses are all within an easy drive. Whatever your interests are Birding, Deep sea Fishing, Horse back riding on the beach, Canopy tours (zip line) ATV's, Wave riding, Hiking around a live volcano or soaking in a mud bath, Biking, River Rafting, Sailing, Tubing or Swimming under a waterfall, these are all available.

Very nice house, well maintained.. we came with our kids and it had everything we needed.. the house is far from the "center" of the small town so you most likely will need a car to get around.. owner and house keeper was very helpful.

About the neighbourhood
You can choose between idyllic palm-lined beaches, small white-sand coves, or world-class surfing beaches. Better yet, you can visit all these and more in one day, as beach after extraordinary beach is strung together along the Costa Rican Riviera. There are so many good restaurants around. Or stay in the comfort of Stef Surf luxury home and enjoy the tropical garden, a definite lush paradise. At night the boardwalk and gardens light up creating intriguing, romantic hideaway.
Getting around
While many restaurants and grocery stores are within a 6 to 8 minute walk, we recommend renting a car or golf cart during your stay. There is so much to see and do as well as so many great beaches to explore. If you're looking to explore on foot, 5 beaches and many restaurants, hotels are easy walk-able. Lis our concierge can help arrange both car or golf cart rentals.
