Villa Rita Country Cottages La Garita Alajuela Costa Rica Complaint - Don't Stay Here - 1 Bedroom; 1 Bath 10 Month Rental
LA GARITA, ALAJUELA COSTA RICA -- I was tested and found to be ill from drinking the water provided by this establishment. The owner switches from well to city water at her discretion and neglects to inform her tenants. She and her family drank only bottled water but neglected to tell me of that fact. I discovered it by accident. I was accused of stealing a teapot when in fact I broke the $3.50 pottery pot, swept it up and placed it in the trash. The recliner was broken when provided and she blamed that on me. She kept my $200.00 security deposit, without explanation, after I sent her a written request for it.
The property is shabby; poorly maintained with poor quality mattresses. The photos are misleading.
