Great house! The house is built Caribeean style with wood, metal-sheet roof, etc. If you are looking for a hotel-style house with AC, this is not your place. However, if you want to enjoy more proximity with nature like birds and hauling monkeys waking you up, butterflies and you dont mind ants..this is the place! My family and I enjoyed the galleria outside with those "strategically placed" hamacas. Worth evey penny. Wifi works beyong expectations so, even when you feel in the jungle, you are browsing distance from anywhere. :)

The house is wonderful and well equipped. The contact with mary was perfect. She always replied fast at our requests. There's lot of noise because of dogs and cocks during the night. We enjoyed.

Excellent place just a short walk to the beach. Honestly, what an awesome place to call home for a week. The caretaker there is very helpful and accommodating. Highly recommend enjoying your morning coffee here for a week.

We enjoyed our stay at the butterfly house. It was perfect for our group of 7. We loved the outside area with the hammocks and couch. The contact for the house was prompt and available to help us as needed. Thank you!!

My boyfriend and I, along with two other friends decided to stay here, and we couldn't of been happier with our choice. Everything with this place was amazing from start to finish. The caretaker Jonathan was there as soon as we arrived. He gave us the tour of the place, followed by advice and ideas of things to do in the area. The house was in a perfect location, a short walk to the grocery store, and the neighbor rents bikes as well. The house itself is beautiful. The open concept allowed us to enjoy the fresh air and garden every morning. The house is also surrounded by a gate, so we always felt safe. It is a 15 minute bike ride to town which was perfect. We all absolutely fell in love with the area and the people. Everyone was so kind and helpful. Every restaurant we went to in town was great. The food was always extremely fresh AND healthy. Not one of us wanted to leave this place we would have stayed if we could. If you weren't considering this area on your tour of Costa Rica you definitely should be. And you should be staying at Marys. We all will definitely be back soon. Pura Vida :)

Hi Julia, I don't know what is wrong with me, I meant to respond to your great review and just spaced out. Thanks for muddling through without the internet. We have been trying for almost 7 months to get our own from ICE, in the meantime we have been hooking up to the neighbors, which usually works fine. Somehow the whole thing went sideways while you were there. We now have it working again from the neighbors but still nothing from ICE. I do apologize, that whole situation happened right before you arrived. And holy cow, the shower situation we had no idea about, thank you for letting us know. That has been fixed. We rarely use the shower downstairs so had no idea. The electrician has been and said there was some poor workmanship when it was put in. Not too unusual there. In fact, it turns out all the power in the place needs to be grounded, so you did us a huge favor by mentioning it. I"m really glad you enjoyed the house and surrounding area, we love it. Happy Trails! Mary
