Subject: thank you again and again

Just looking at our pictures of Macaw Beach and wishing I was still there.

It's been so hard adjusting to 'real' life again.

I can't tell you how many people we have all bragged to about your paradise in Costa Rica.

I don' t think in our wildest dreams we could have come up with a better place to stay or better people to spend time with.

The guys have loved giving out the website with their Sail fish pictures on it. Paul and I are already planning to return in September. I will keep in touch and let you know what we figure out. If you need any testimonials please let me know or just add my email and address to your list of satisfied customers.

Take care and I hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks again for the best vacation ever,

Carrie Ensogna

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello! My family and I just spent six weeks at the Macaw House and want to let you know what a wonderful experience it was.

Everything was beautiful and we had a great time!

Your staff helped make the trip so nice.

The staff supervisorl was extremely helpful in anything we needed -- he arranged drivers for us, told us places to go.

I want to express my gratitude to him, and the rest of the staff.

They are all very nice people and made it so enjoyable for us!

Rosaura even brought me a bouquet of flowers on my birthday!



Thank you for the use of the home. I'm sure we'll be back!

Relaxing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
10 of us recently had the pleasure of vacationing at this property for 7 days. Words are not adequate to express how pleasant our stay was at the facility. The staff supervisor was always available for any questions we might have had, recommendations for tours and restaurants, and medical emergencies (which we had). If we needed anything, the staff supervisor did his best to make sure we were accommodated including running errands for food, beverages or last minute souvenirs. And always with a smile!

The staff was on hand everyday for maintenance and cleaning, never interfering. We ordered a cook for one night and had one of the best dinners with freshly caught Corvina (Sea Bass). Our only regret as that we didn't take advantage of that service more.

The location was quiet and sedate with spectacular views. The housing was clean and comfortable. We were visited by scarlet macaws and iguanas. We drank straight from coconuts and were able to pick fruit off the trees for the parrots in the bird house, as well as, for ourselves. Overall, our stay couldn't have been more perfect. If you are looking for a place relax and unwind, then look no further, this is it!

Beautiful Property! Amazing Service! Great Vacatio

  • 5 of 5
Let me start by saying the we were extremely surprised when we got there. We saw pictures of the property and thought it was almost to good to be true. Well I can assure you its better than the pictures. Actually they don't do it justice.
The property is perfectly maintained. Beautiful landscaping, amazing backdrop, gorgeous house and beach houses. Imagine macaws flying around all day. Doesn't get better than that.
Besides the house. The concierge service is incredible. Sal set us up with transfers to and from the airport. Maria had a delicious lunch waiting for us at the house when we arrived. He is well known around town. Anything we needed, took care of it. We went to him for almost everything. He recommended us restaurants and set us up with all our excursions (fishing, zip lining, golf) We even had to bother him in the middle of the night because we got lost. He was quick to answer and fix our situation. Maria's service was also amazing. She never bothered us. Kept the house incredibly clean, even when we made a huge mess. However her cooking was the best part. She cooked us several dinners with the fish we caught and even made an amazing ceviche with the leftovers.
All in all, this was one incredible vacation. The Macaw house and staff definitely made it memorable and would recommend them to everyone!

Beware of the ants!

  • 3 of 5
I stayed here for 9 nights with two families including 4 adults and 4 young children.
First let me say Sal was a great host and willing to lend a hand at a moments notice.
Without him my rating would have been lower.

The property is located about 20 km north of Jaco.
If you don't have a car it's a $20 cab ride each direction.
While fairly secluded there are a couple of decent restaurants within walking distance.
Anything else requires a car/cab.

The property is nice but you have to know what to expect.
It is what I would describe as rustic.
No central a/c, only old window type a/c units in each bedroom.
They are noisy and because they only run when someone is staying in a room, all the rooms smell musty due to the humidity.

Ants and other bugs are expected outside (I live in Florida so I know about bugs), but not in the house.
The kitchen was overrun by ants.
If you left a crumb of food on the counter or floor they were all over it.
All food has to be kept in the fridge.
I can only describe it as disgusting.
When we arrived, some pastries that Sal had bought for us at our request had ants all over them and we were told to just eat them like that.
No thanks!

My family stayed in the second house (not the pool house) which requires you to walk through some heavy vegetation and even cross running water if it has rained (which it did quite a bit because of the season).
This was not the most enjoyable thing, especially for the young kids.
The water pressure in this house was not enough to use the shower.
We had to use the hand held shower that was part of the Jacuzzi tub.

The beach was terrible.
It is a fine black sand which you cannot get out of your clothes.
The water is very dirty/murky because of the nearby streams running into the ocean, so you could not go into the water.
Because it is a secluded beach there is quite a bit of trash washed up on it.
Basically the beach was useless except to walk on.
The beach was the main selling point for us in choosing this house as we had 4 kids who love to play on the beach.
It was a total waste for us.

We had Roxi cook for us several times.
It was ok, but uninspired.
We did have one issue the last night where she showed up half drunk, then helped herself to our rum and ruined $40 worth of seafood.
My wife had to take over the cooking to try and salvage some of it.
It was comical in retrospect and gave us a good story to tell our friends, but it was very unprofessional.

Your home in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5
If you would like to experience life in Costa Rica this home is the place. Though modest, the home is placed on a lovely lot with privacy. The everything is kept very clean and the pool is very inviting. The ocean is there for your pleasure as well. But the best feature of this home is Sal and Roxinia. Sal will help you with anything. I know, because I tested him with everything. We had our sons rehearsal dinner there last weekend. With the help of Sal I was able to organize everything from Texas. Roxinia cooked an incredible meal that left my guests completely satisfied. Sal helped me to find tables and linens to rent as well as some really lovely young men to help grill steaks and bartend.
The people were all really a pleasure to know and work with.
The house that is located close to the pool has an amazing porch with tables and some really wonderful rocking chairs, great for watching birds, Iguana's and lizards. The home has a fully stocked kitchen, one bathroom, three bedrooms and a living room. The other house is a little distance but not far. Great for family that wants to be together, but not on top of each other.
Enjoy your time in Costa Rica!
Thanks for everything Sal.

Excellent place to stay at....

  • 5 of 5
A few friends and i stayed here last October at first i wasn't sure if the pictures posted on this site where going to give the place any justice but I'll tell you what it was more beautiful in person. Management staff where on point, they where laid back gave my friends and i enough space but when we would call on them the where more then happy to help in what ever way possible. They had a cook/chef which was wonderful anything we wanted the chef prepared no questions asked. This house was very clean and neat, the pool wow the clearest water I've ever seen in a pool, the beach was about a 2 min walk not far at all the scenery was awesome . Also its not that far away from town had no trouble getting to our destinations and back. Wish we could of stayed longer, this is a home that i will definitely stay at again when i go back to Costa Rica.
