NICE HOME FOR THE PRICE 3.5 stars.
We stayed a couple weeks at this house and liked it fine. Good fridge, great AC, plenty of fans, clean bedding. The house itself needs a deep cleaning especially the bathroom. Great price and wonderful location for exploring the peninsula. Local man across the road up a few blocks has amazing oxen. Go to Tambor beach and Curu refuge! Both wonderful, highly recommend the snorkeling trip from Curu. lots of hiking. nice grill in back yard, but no utensils. If you are bug phobic don't go....lots of ant, centipedes, spiders and even several scorpions I swept out. Washing machine was fun to use, I don't read Spanish. no manual. Also issues with getting rid of trash, problem everywhere. white tiles are great as you can see bugs so you don't step on them! The house is well appointed, we did most of our meals there. Bed was comfortable and loved the kitchen table..Local stores and bakery will provide what you need, check out the fruit stands, best pineapple, oranges and limes ever! Fish at Tambor for sale, caught by local fishermen.
Thanks again Amy for your stay at our house in Paquera. Sorry you had some bugs in the house but we are on the tropics so it can happen....worse if doors and windows are left open.
Paquera is a small town with lots of good qualities. The house was wonderful.
The house in Paquera was pretty, comfortable and clean. Any thing we needed was addressed quickly by the owner. There is a nice restaurant at the local hotel Gianna that has wonderful food. Curu Reserve is close and a great place to visit
Thanks Lisa for your stay and remember we look forward to seeing back again sometime!
Mike's Place is great
Paquera is not a tourist destination, but Mike and Manuel helped us plan out a wonderful vacation while seeing how the locals live. We had everything we needed , and cooked entire meals while there. If in Paquera, this is a great place to stay.
Quaint and Quiet
We stayed in Paquera at this wonderful quiet home for one week out of our three week trip to Costa Rica. We thoroughly enjoyed staying here! We used this as our home base as we explored the southern peninsula. There was a spectacular wildlife refuge close by called Curu National Wildlife Refuge that you shouldn't miss! It was nice to come back to this wonderful spacious home after a day of exploring. I would most definitely recommend a stay here if you are visiting the southern peninsula.
Comfort in the midst of the jungle
My husband and two sons really wanted to experience the less touristy parts of the country without sacrificing safety and basic comforts.
Thanks to Mike's bungalow, we felt right at home in Costa Rica!
To begin with, we were given very detailed information in advance about the property, the area and contact information. Then, when we arrived, we were warmly greeted by Nena (she does the housekeeping) and her husband (he built the place). What a sweet couple! They offered to help us any way we needed and showed us around the spotless home and showed us how to use the various amenities (including an air conditioning unit, which was quite an appreciated luxury in the hot, humid climate). The town was also easy to get around in, with supermarkets and an ATM close by. The highlight of our time there was a 10-15 min jaunt to the Curú Nature preserve. The quantity and variety of native wildlife to see there was breathtaking (although there was also quite a bit of wildlife right outside our window, too!).
I highly recommend making the visit to Paquera and staying at this property.
Thanks for the memorable experience!
Dette tilbagelagte område i Costa Rica er som livet måske har været for næsten hundrede år siden. Ikke mange turister og en meget 'typisk' Costa Rica føler sig til livets tempo. Oxcarts bruges stadig regelmæssigt til at transportere varer, og heste er ikke ualmindelige. Ikke meget engelsk talt i området, hvilket føjer til den kulturelle oplevelse. Paquera og den nedre Nicoya-halvøen er endnu ikke blevet overdrevent udviklede, selvom to af de bedste strande i landet, Santa Teresa og Montezuma er her. Curu Biological Reserve er kun 10 minutter fra huset. Derfra tager du 10 minutters bådtur over til Isla Tortuga for den bedste dykning og snorkling på halvøen! Den nærmeste strand er Playa Organos. Det er en smuk 2 kilometer lang strækning med en retfærdig flod i den ene ende, der strømmer ind i Stillehavet. Et absolut must er natkajak plankton bio luminescence tour! Det er i Playa Organos området og kan bookes via Bahia Rica Tours. Isla Tortuga kan ses fra Playa Organos med et skarpt øje eller en kikkert. Lidt længere nede ad kysten er de travle turistbyer Montezuma og Santa Teresa altid livlige.
