    Charming rooms with huge balconies. The house is absolutely lovely and it is surrounded by beautiful nature. If you are looking for ultimate relaxing time, this is the place for it. Ben is a fantastic person.

    Property was beautiful. Owner has way to much on his plate + a few screws loose-- so you're better off somewhere else.

    The listing for this rental states "shared kitchen" under facilities yet when we arrived, and there was in fact a full kitchen the host/ owner stated it wasn't really for guest use? We had previously informed him we were bringing groceries prior to our arrival. We had already premade food from our previous stay and all we wanted to do was heat it up in a pan. He lied to us and said there was no gas hooked up but when we checked, the stove was fully functional. We felt taken advantage of and lied to yet when we expressed our frustration to the owner over the phone, he got extremely defensive. We eventually were told to walk up to main house to borrow a frying pan. The next morning the owner was waiting for us outside the front door and stated that he was kicking us out due to the nature of the phone call the previous night. As upset and blindsided as we were, we were able to squash the drama, both explain where each other were coming from and move on. We remained there and finished out our stay. Prior to checkout, we cleaned the kitchen, did our dishes, cleaned up the house and even swept the floors. Upon leaving the property on the day we checked out, the owner had parked his truck in the middle of a small dirt access road leading to his property from the main rode. Being that we had a rental car and a ferry to catch we had no way of finding or calling the owner to tell him to move his truck. The power had been out for the last 3 hours of our stay and we had no way of contacting him. We honked our horn and hollered for him for about 10 min looking around him. No luck. Desperately afraid we were going to miss our ferry reservation, we had to take our rental car basically four-wheeling to get around this jackass's truck which resulted with a huge dent on the side of the rental car due to rocks and boulders surrounding the path. I dont even want to know what that's going to cost...

    What didn’t I like about the property? A short walk away from the main road, Casa Del Bosque is the perfect mix between convienence (close to Balgue, food delivery from Cafe Campestre, cold beers in the fridge) and tranquility. The rooms themselves are equipped with what must be a memory foam mattress because it’s insanely comfortable. A fan, beautiful porch views, and a clean, spacious bathroom. Wifi is fast. Ben, the host, is equipped with information, friendliness, and the 3 cutest dogs.

    Ben is a wonderful host, always eager to make us feel welcomed and comfortable! The guesthouse sits on a beautiful organic farm, perfect to relax, while still not far from the main restaurants and bars areas. Highly recommended!
