Interação com hóspedes
Guests are respectfully left in peace to enjoy their lodging - however anyone looking for a little social time, pet interaction or local information need only walk on up the pier to the patio deck and Clubhouse where morning coffee clutches and evening sunset gatherings are a regular thing and your host is never far away. We offer several tour options from hiking to local boats exploring the waterways (picking you up there at your deck doorstep) to zip line adventures up in the forest.... Assistance and local information for guests is always at hand.
Outras coisas a ter em conta
Sport fishermen note: Local charter captains are welcome to pick up directly at your deck. Local taxi boats can pick up at the houseboat if you'd like to go on a tour or explore the shores of the Golfo Dulce, the quaint coastline community and estuaries. Our kayaks may be lent to houseboat guests staying 3 days or more to give special access to explore the bay and rustic Golfito island restaurants. Happy hours and international menus next door on either side offer great waterfront dining. A dozen options from sea food to local fare are in walking distance. Local groceries and cantinas are all in walking distance. Our BBQ galley on the deck is available to guests by request. Buses and flights in and out daily. Economical Taxis pass by 24 hours a day. Parking available on the road or driveway in front of the property.
If enthusiastic mutts and a bit of "dog liberty" isn't agreeable then this may not be a good match. It's only fair to note the shore side clubhouse is also home for 4 adopted "street dogs" (3 small, 1 large). By rule, the dogs do not enter or "hang out" at the houseboat. It has a gate to it's deck and as they've learned it's "off limits" but that won't stop them from running to bark a greeting at guests coming and going from the street or waterside or from "guarding" with their stern barks when they think it's warranted. They're great dogs and a warm part of the scene. But some renters prefer dog free environments so I felt it worth noting....
Enthusiasm for experiencing this "on the water" lifestyle must be tempered by a normal degree of safe behavior and prudence to assure that nobody and nothing are put at risk. Enjoy the retreat but do understand that this is a tranquillo lodging choice where the practice of "Costa Rica Pura Vida" is 'a rule'. For safety reasons, no fishing directly from the decks and pier are permitted. Music on exterior decks after 10pm is prohibited out of respect for other 'yachties' and neighbors living aboard in this active marina zone. No unregistered guests after 10pm. The houseboat is fully equipped but guests can also access the auxiliary patios and amenities of our shore side clubhouse 7:30 am to 7:30 pm for auxilary toliet and shower facilites. The clubhouse patio and BBQ area close 9pm. No guests other than those registered are admitted to the clubhouse "after hours".

Katie Duncan arrived to Costa Rica while traveling aboard the sailing vessel 'Caribbee', pleasure cruising with Captain Tim Leachman. With no previous thought to making a home abroad or settling permanently outside their home town of Santa Barbara, California, their cruise down the pacific coast was only meant to be a short escape - a season of fun on the ocean. But something magical happened during those first weeks at anchor in the port town of Golfito . The beautifully calm natural harbor, the verdant green and fantastical sounds of the surrounding jungle, the welcoming bustle of a quaint port town on shore.... It all conspired to lure them into staying longer than planned. One thing led to another and opportunities just kept presenting themselves. The chance for mortgage free property ownership, an easy infrastructure for setting up a business and realizing the dream of self employment, the lure of a more casual lifestyle among a culture of practical and economical living.... Yes, a life with this kind of adventure and joy was too tempting not to embrace! In Katie's words, "there was never a question- we loved Golfito from the moment we pulled into port. It just took a few years to really see and believe that we could make choices to stay and that we could succeed! It's an incredibly bold thing to take a new and unconventional route in life, but not nearly as difficult as one might imagine. Yes, there were challenges along the way. But looking back on it, overcoming the obstacles often made the journey even more exciting and brought more satisfaction and rewards than could have ever been anticipated."
Sharing the fun, the experiences and the expertise gained over the past 20 is Katie's vocation - . and so obviously her pleasure! Katie and the team of competent people working along with her at Land Sea Services are very well equipped with the experience and ability to guide you into your adventures, assisting you all along the journey!
