Are you ready to get out of your routine and go someplace where you can relax on the beach all day and fall asleep to the surf pounding on the shore? Get off the tourist path and experience the beauty and tranquility that awaits you at Casa Costello. Lie beneath a palm frond roof, sip coffee on the upper terrace with stunning views. With two stories, two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two large terraces, and a cabana overlooking the beach, you'll have plenty of room to spread out in the shade, or scour the beach for sea glass, your choice. Private beach access lets you come and go at your leisure. Wi-fi and cable are provided so you can still connect with the world. Full kitchen with fridge, stove, oven, blender, coffee maker, and an outdoor gas grill are provided for your use. There are enough dishes, pots, pans and utensils to cook a feast for 8. There is bar seating in the kitchen, and a large table on the terrace that seats six. The 2 large terraces provide plenty of sunshine or shade, depending on what you crave. Rustic, colorful, and original, you've never stayed at a place like this. We have little red crabs living in the garden, numerous birds and lizards to watch in the yard all day, and our friendly outdoor kitty Lestat, is always around to keep you company. Transportation can be arrange to/from the airport, grocery store, ATM, restaurants, or nearby excursions for a fee. Our caretaker and his family can accommodate any request, including running errands, cleaning, laundry service or even cooking meals, for a reasonable price. If you'd like to visit the more touristy Caberete to eat at one of the fancier restaurants, (where the prices are high, peddlers are many, and english is spoken,) this can be arranged. For a more cultural experience, and lower prices, we recommend closer Gaspar Hernandez for restaurants and shopping. Our staff will be happy to accompany you as a guide, for a minimal fee. Excursions can be arranged to Rio San Juan as well, or just about anyplace else within and hour or two's drive. There are no restaurants within walking distance, but there are fruit stands, a convenience store stocked with the very basics, (ice, veggies, etc.) and a tiny locals bar at the end of the dirt road. With a bedroom and bathroom on each floor, you will have plenty of privacy, with an additional sofa bed that can be curtained off to provide an additional bedroom. Enjoy the extensive shade in the backyard from the coconut, almond, and fruit trees, the beautiful flowers, and the ocean breeze. We even have a special coco tree that shades a portion of the beach so you can sit in the shade with your toes in the sand and watch the waves. You can spend your days swimming and sunning, and your nights strolling on the moonlit shores. Linens, coffee, and towels are provided. Feel free to ice down the available cooler, grab a plastic chair, and make yourself at home on the beach all day! Parking is available, and our staff lives withing hailing distance should you need anything during your stay. The language here is Spanish, but our staff is intuitive, and a translation dictionary is provided for added convenience. With a too many screened windows to count, and ceiling fans throughout the house, we don't care if you smoke or not. Our house is your house for the duration of your stay.
