Arriving at El Chante on a Friday night in pitch black, we were still so excited to
walk in and see the inside of our new home for the next couple weeks. We absolutely
fell in love with the cottage's charm and inviting feeling. You can tell that
Claudia used her stellar creativity to make this place more than just a rental- we
wanted to stay here forever!
Waking up to the sound of roosters and howler monkeys to get you to start your day
early before the sun gets hot reminds you that this truly is the "Pura Vida" life of
The home is fully equipped with blender, coffee maker, and all the other essentials
you'll need to stay comfortably. The water is fed by spring from the Cabo Blanco
nature reserve, and is packed with minerals to keep you hydrated. The abundance of
fruit trees will also keep you cool as we feasted on manzanilla de agua (water
apple, right by the back porch), Limon, ( a lime/lemon hybrid that's like nothing
you've ever tasted before), starfruit, and coconut were all in season during our
stay. There was a young guanabana tree there, as well, which was sad that it had not
bore fruit yet! We quickly learned that the guanabana was our new favorite fruit.
The view from each porch provides an array of stunning beauty - from the variegated
squirrels in the front, to the cows in the back, it's never a dull moment.
We ventured to the Super David and Super Chicho stores to get food and supplies -
they have mostly anything you need there. The cemetery island was absolutely
beautiful, and the panaderia at the end of the street makes the best casado I've had
We absolutely enjoyed our stay at El Chante, and Claudia was amazing. She did
everything she could to make sure our stay was comfortable - the kitchen sink broke,
and although we had a laundry sink and BBQ sink, she came by the same day to replace
it! She also checked up on us via phone after our first full day to see if we needed
anything. We also visited her gallery, and took one of her beautiful pieces home.
You can tell that Claudia puts so much into her work and her rental home, and we are
so appreciative of her hospitality.
