Spanish colonial cottage on beach with large yard and guest cottage.

Older house with two apartments, up and down. Both have baths and kitchens, lower floor has large air conditioned bedroom. Upper is not for rent. Lower is for rent and so is cottage in rear of yard, also with own bath and kitchen. The yard is pretty with flowering trees and visiting monkeys; the house has 100 meters of beachfront, very quiet beach though people do fish and dive there occasionally. Unparalleled view of ocean, no neighbors. Boating on river; fishing, surfing, swimming. All services nearby.

About the location

sparsely populated but busy enough to keep a small community alive. there are a couple of grocery stores nearby, nightlife if any is a short drive to Tamarindo. There are several small restaurants within ten minute drives. If the timing is right, you might catch a local `fiesta`, when a magnificent bullring magically appears in the local park, complete with bleachers; people set up booths for food and stuff, a small band might ignite near the ring, and then the bulls arrive. It`s all delightful and cheap. Try to hit a nightclub where Ticos dance salsa. They are very delicate people and light on their feet, a pleasure to watch.
