My wife was a bit skeptical of this rental, until we pulled into the driveway. Then she didn't want to leave! The property, while not fancy, is very clean and well maintained, and I can't say enough nice things about the owner/hostess, Karen! The location is very good. Karen's description is "right on"! and the little extra things that she adds are great! As of now, we are planning on returning next year!
We spent a very relaxing week at Sweet Bungalow. Karen, our host, was pleasant and helpful without being intrusive. A great place to stay for a couple looking for a private, quiet getaway. It was just what we were hoping for. Good location- with park, beach, fishing, dining, shopping all just a short drive away.
Although the bungalow is in an iffy neighborhood it is convenient to downtown and the Botanical Gardens. The backyard was a relaxing retreat making you feel as if you were in the tropics of Costa Rica. Unfortunately it also had the mosquitoes to go with the tropical feel. We found the owner very accommodating and she provided many useful extras both inside and out. There is a nice outdoor living area but when it's cool or the mosquitoes are out you are stuck in the little bedroom. The place needed a total cleaning.
