Lovely remote beachfront property
The house was well equipped, well maintained, and perches right above the beach. There were lots of nice extras like snorkeling gear, paddle boards and kayaks and fluffy beach towels. We liked the beach cabana and fire pit too. Jose Maria, the caretaker, came each day to refresh our water and see to our needs. Griselda, his wife, delivered a spectacular dinner one night complete with a huge tres leches cake that won’t soon be forgotten. Getting to Los Argos is something of a challenge. Our car was a small compact, not the standard issue 4 wheel drive and while we made it without incident it was a challenge. Take the coast road from Los Barriles only in the day light and only if you are a confident driver. The house is not marked as Los Arcos and you won’t be given an address so good luck identifying it. We had to ask the neighbors to make sure we weren’t breaking and entering. There were eight of us so the four bedrooms worked fine, as it would if you weren’t all couples but had kids with you that you could pile into the back bedroom. That room has three double beds, a bathroom that was decidedly less than the others and a sort of moldy yet bleachy smell. The other three bedrooms open out to a huge varanda all with great views. The folks in the back bedroom definitely draw the short end of the bedroom stick. Good thing everything else is so beautifully done that they didn’t mind. Spencer contacted us a couple of times to see all was well, which we appreciated. It was a good, remote get away.
