It is not my intention to leave a negative review but more so to leave an accurate review of this listing.
First, There is only air-conditioning in the 2 upstairs bedrooms, Not in the main living space nor in the 3 downstairs bedrooms. It is extremely hot throughout the house so if air-conditioning is something you value, you may want to reconsider.
I rented this house for my bridesmaids and my mother to stay while I was getting married in the area. One of my bridesmaids was pregnant and the heat was unbearable for her. I had to have 4 people sleeping in one of the upstairs rooms at night just to escape the heat. The windows in the main living area do open, however there are no screens so bugs get into the house.
In the main living area, where I assume windows would normally go, they are replaced by just a piece of lattice, this row of lattice runs the entire length of the house. As you can imagine, this allows heat, bugs, lizards and all types of critters to easily come into the house. The house in general needed a really good cleaning as there was dust and dead bugs everywhere, especially in corners of the house, bathrooms, and on the tops of cabinets, in the lights and all over the shelf below the lattice. Ants in the kitchen and even in the drawers.
The pool looks nice in photos, however it was cloudy and needed cleaned. Maintenance only came to clean the pool 2 days before we left our week long rental. The pool was unswimmable until then.
I feel bad saying all this but I wish someone had said something in their reviews as I would not have rented this house, especially for my wedding week. I felt horrible bc I arranged this house for my best friends, my bridemaids, and my MOTHER to stay in this house. And charged them a lot of $ to do so. We rented 2 other houses in the Punta Leona area for comparable prices which were 100 times in better condition, clean and fully air-conditioned. We felt like we got the short end of the stick after seeing the other houses we rented and literally were only at the house to sleep at night.
On top of everything else, The last night there, we came home from Jaco to the sound of running water, a pipe had busted in the laundry area and left water all over the floor. I guess this is no one's fault..but was still one more thing we had to deal with.
This house has so much potential and is probably couple thousand dollars away from being a really nice rental and worth the asking price.
On a positive note, the views and location were amazing. Having easy access to renting golf carts was great. which was a fun and easy way for us to get back and forth between the other houses.
