      Communication Issues,

      Hello, I stayed in this property for 74 day, and multiple issues with this property, and their owners. The very first communication that I had with the property owner was about how many stairs are there and I let them know that I've joints issues and coming there for sunshine and to be able to move around. I also, mentioned that " the last thing I need to be trapped in the house". The owners failed to tell me how hard was to walk to their house. The house is on the top of the hill with a very steep and unusual driveway and it's hard to drive on the driveway without a four wheel drive. I tried to order an Uber taxi couple time online, but the Uber cancelled my ride after the noticed the location. Also, the owners mentioned that there was multiple things with walking distance, but they didn't mention how hard was to walk around the neighborhood. I tired to walk couple times in the neighborhood and after 20 minutes of walking my smart watch showed 11 floors. This property was not write for the person with joints and back problems and I which Ron and Sandra had told me that when I inquire about the property. I would recommend Ron and Sandra to repair the plumbing in the shower and add a toilet set cover. I had to cover the shower drainage with a plastic bag, but the smell was unbearable and very unsanitary, cue to all the bacteria coming from the plumbing that was not done properly. I didn't appreciate how Ron and Sandra keep telling me about their financial problems and how they live on their Social Security paycheck from the first day I entered their property. I appreciated Ron and Sandra giving me ride whenever they went to town for grocery and for daily walk, but again it would been better if they told me how hard it will be for unhealthy person to get around their property. On last day of stay, Sandra told me she has noticed 3 of the floor tiles were cracked since I moved in, but the cracks are very old and from the house settling. It seemed to me that Sandra is trying to make some money from their old tiles as well. Overall, this property will be good for someone with a car or healthy enough whom wants to hike. Otherwise, it will be very hard to get around, and very expensive to find a ride.

      5/5 Excellent

        What a great view!

        Ron and Sondra’s is a class apart from what you will experience in Costa Rica. They take as good care of you as they do themselves We have been staying in Costa Rica off and on for six months ...most rentals are run by a management company hired by owners who show up once a year. Sometimes the management company fixes that leaking fridge sometimes they won’t. Whereas Ron is there in a heartbeat and is Mr Handyman Express competent.. Loved the five star quality US import-comfy bed and furniture. On top of that Ron and Sondra are super responsive and can fill you in on anything you need, want or are interested in doing. And that is not even the best part, which is the view the sunsets on the delightful deck that overlooks the valley. We stayed for five weeks and enjoyed the San Luis community, Isabels restaurant and people we met. Sarchi and Grecia are six kilometers away for grocers and good restaurants. We came in January but an FYI there still were Christmas winds that swirl around at night up into February at least during our stay . Also to access the house use second gear. Ron And Sondra are helpful, humorous and considerate hosts. Other places charge twice as much for half as nice. Just book it.
