My life isn't a #storybook , but I got lucky and get to live in a storybook home!
Not typical of Costa Rican architecture, so don't get too excited if you're thinking about moving here.
I moved in 4 years ago. The landlord had just bought it the month before. This 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath house, is $320 a month.
I live in a non-Gringo area in the mountains. This is not a North American style house at all. Living at the beach, in a Gringo area, and/or insisting on North American amenities will make rent more expensive.
