This was a great apartment for our family and the owner is very kind and caring. The kitchen is small but provided everything we needed- fridge, microwave, stove, toaster, coffee maker. The patio off the kitchen was great for enjoying the view- you stay dry even in the rainy season because of the roof overhangs. Same with the windows, you can leave these open in the rain. We didn’t have much luck with hot water in the shower, but I think this is common. The location is great, about a three minute walk to the Central Avenue. From there you can easily catch a taxi to any trails or other area attractions. With a 5 and 7 year old, we recommend Pipeline trail, the bee/butterfly/honey farm, Jardín Encantado, the Cascada Tatica trail, and just walking around town. The gelato place is great and The Rock is a beautiful restaurant for a special occasion (we went for a pair of birthdays).
The owner came to check on us when we were at the playground, making sure we were having a pleasant stay and sharing ideas of area activities for the next day. On our last night, there was an earthquake. The owner was very concerned and made sure we were safe and comfortable.
The gardens and playground are perfect when the kids still have energy and you don’t!
