The place is located right on the Estero and River from Puntarenas. We have a great view from our deck over the water to the "Angostura" from Puntarenas. There is NO other place like this in Costa Rica. We are also conveniently located only 5 miles to the Ferry, supermarkets, bakery, pulperia are located close. We are in a "Real Tico Neighborhood" this is NOT a setup for the tourists, not a million dollar villa on top of a hill where you don't see or hear a soul as long as you are there, our place is right where live goes on, this is how people really live in Costa Rica. The neighbors are mostly fisherman and retired people, all are friendly, humble and working class, this is how 95% of all ticos are. A real "Tico Neighborhood" this is NOT a setup for the tourists, this is how live really is in Costa Rica. The neighbors are mostly fisherman and retired people. The people are all friendly, humble and working class, this is how 95% of all ticos are. There is always some movement on the water, boats come and go all day, sometimes at night we have a couple of shrimp fishers 3 meters of the deck. They will sell you Jumbo Shrimps if you ask for cheap. It's great, sitting on the deck never gets boring, there is always something to see. There are also hundreds of birds around all day, different species, coming and going, water landing, fishing, fighting, floating around, fishing vessels, small boats, big boat, you can even see the cruise ships coming and going to Puntarenas at night - SpectacularWe are on a river, that connects to the ocean. At high tide, there is a chance that garbage or debris floats by, Ticos don't care very much about the environment. If something like this bothers you, then this place is NOT for you.The bus stop is on the next corner, the bus will take you to Chacarita, Puntarenas Center, El Roble and other locations. Taxi's can be called, the public bus station is just 100m away

    A private resort devoted to relaxation!
    When driving to Casa Lilu, you get an appreciation for the Tica experience mentioned in the description. Then the gate is opened and you are in your private resort at the confluence of the two rivers and the ever changing tide convinces you to sit back and watch the world go by. The house is very well stocked, particularly the kitchen, the rooms are comfortable, the A/C works well (for the 20 or so minutes we had it on because the weather was perfect !), the internet is strong and consistent, the pool is crystal clear, and the grounds are well maintained by the on-site manager. Security is important for us and Casa Lilu is a tranquil spot in the midst of an authentic/genuine working Tico town. Our week was wonderful and although it was hard to leave our oasis, we were able to visit many coastal area towns and beaches nearby, always certain to be back by sundown to relax on the deck, check on the tides, and enjoy the marvelous sunsets!

    Casa Lilu
    Our month stay at Casa Lilu was everything we expected and more. First and foremost, Mike and Louisa are genuine, caring and quite helpful with local as well as country information. We explored the Tico neighborhood that is just on the other side of the gorgeous morning glory hedge, shopped in the local stores and made frequent visits to buy freshly baked bread just down the street. Being away from the common resort type establishments was refreshing and allowed us to experience and immerse ourselves in the rhythm of everyday life in Costa Rica. Casa Lilu is in itself an oasis with a lovely and well cared for pool, a deck where we spent much time relaxing, having our meals and watching the local fishermen pass by on their way to the ocean to fish with many stopping in the canal or estuary to cast nets or to throw hand-lines into the water. The lot is spacious and well maintained. Jonathon, the on-site overseer, is expert at his work and was always prepared to assist us with our needs. He was very discreet, gracious and kind. The house suited our needs well with two bedrooms and each with its own bathroom, a large common area and a well-stocked kitchen that facilitated our cooking needs. We even learned how to make Gallo Pinto (a popular Costa Rican dish) and enjoyed that meal several times during our stay. Casa Lilu was a great location for us as from here we were able to drive to many other areas of interest. Quite a few were day trips and we did choose to do two “over-nighters” one being in the Arenal area and the other was a sojourn to the Caribbean side of Costa Rica all the while leaving most of our “stuff” safe and secure at Casa Lilu with Jonathon. To give one an idea of the areas that can be visited on a day trip our trips included Monteverde, Montezuma (on the Nicoya Peninsula), La Fortuna, Manual Antonio, Jaco, Uvita, Atenas/San Jose and the Poas volcano area. We made quite a few trips into Puntarenas proper as there are markets there, several good restaurants, the ferry and of course just people watching. We enjoyed exploring several different areas in Puntarenas and walking through the vendors’ stands near the pier where cruise ships dock. Thank you, Mike, Louisa and Jonathon, for being such lovely hosts and making us feel so welcomed. Through our stay you have become friends that we shall forever cherish and yes, if and when we return to Costa Rica, we would enjoy revisiting Casa Lilu.

    enjoyed our vacation here
    This is a nice private location, clean with all the amenities. It is located in a very non-tourist location, small little town. The place is well maintained with great responsiveness to all questions.
