Thank you! We were genuinely upset that we had to leave today, we have had the best time and it was mainly due to having such a fantastic apartment to stay in. Loren was so helpful and friendly, you have a good guy there. Hopefully we will get to meet you next time!

A great place at the top of the hill with an amazing view. The amenities are great, seeing the wildlife around the house is amazing. A great place to stay in.

This was a fantastic place with a million dollar view of the ocean! No picture will do it justice!

Hi Matthew, great to hear that you and Rebecca enjoyed the ocean views. We love how the sea and light are constantly changing color and of course the ebb and flow of the tide as the Whale Tail comes in and out of view. Thanks again for staying at Balcón Ballena! Pura vida, Mike & Eva

Mike and Eva’s place is beautiful with a wonderful view. The open air concept was nice and AC was not needed. The drive up to the home is a bit scary initially (but not the scariest road we encountered in CR and this one is managed/maintained) if you’re not used to driving up mo…

Hi Kristina, We are so happy to hear that your wedding anniversary trip went well and that you enjoyed be close to nature and the cooling mountain breezes here at Balcón Ballena! Yes the road up is a bit of thrill the first couple times but it is cool how quickly you get used to it. We are really lucky to have a neighborhood that values keeping the road well-maintained. Of course, renting the right vehicle makes all the difference so we are very glad you followed those directions! Best wishes to you and Richard! Mike & Eva

Amazing house. Everything was clean and nice. Plenty of amenities in the house. Incredible views from atop the mountain made for great sunrises, sunsets and photographs. It was quite far up the mountain which I wasn’t necessarily prepared for but was definitely not a problem. Cos…
