Casa Bella Rita sits in a quiet residential neighborhood on the edge of the Virilla River canyon, with an expansive, verdant view of farmland and distant mountains. My ground-floor room (Heliconia) is cool and airy, with both fan and air conditioner, as well as a mini-fridge. The casa has a front courtyard with garden and a covered patio. The spacious common room opens onto another covered patio, with pool and terrace beyond, all with the lovely canyon view. A gate in the far corner opens into an enclosed lawn with a covered deck, cooling breezes, and butterflies like many-colored confetti.
Alejandra and Javier are welcoming and gracious hosts. Their made-to-order breakfast includes super-fresh local fruits, yogurt, and a choice of French toast, pancakes, eggs (omelette, scrambled, etc), along with the usual coffee, juice, milk, toast etc.
Three restaurants are a three-minute walk away, including an Italian one recommended by Alejandra - who lived in Italy for 10 years. Twenty minutes away in a small plaza are Fresh Market (6am to 12m) and additional restaurants. The market offers prepared salads and sandwiches, fresh meats, fruits and vegetables, wines, groceries and so on.
I know I will return to the Casa Bella Rita whenever I visit Costa Rica in the future. Muchas gracias, Javier and Alejandra, for a lovely, relaxing stay.
