Yes the roads in Costa Rica are notoriously bad. They have been forever. The maid spent all day preparing the house for them, and myself and property manager kept asking if they needed anything. There were some extra dishes and towels we had to bring from one house to the other, but we had everything ready. All they had to do was ask. We have two maids, a gardener, and property manager waiting to cater to everyone's needs. It suprises me when people don't simply ask for what they need. It is a beach house. You can hear the waves. We have protected mangroves in between us and the beach, so we take a very scenic short walk to the beach.
