No need to repeat the other reviews. This spot is amazing. House was clean and well maintained. Everything was perfect. Gary (the owner) was always available, friendly, and helpful. Hope we can go back sometime.

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5
What an awesome house. Plenty of wildlife right outside the door, and a super host. There was plenty of room, and lots of activities a short distance away. Gary was always super helpful and patient while helping us find discounts, giving us directions, or helping us with the kayaks. I would definelty reccomend this house to anyone wanting a great relaxing vacation.

Best view I have seen at a beachfront home

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 10 arrived on 2/15 and were greeted by Gary. He showed us the house and we settled in. We were in awe of the view from the start. My first evening I was thrilled to see Scarlet Macaws fly into the trees near by. Then a monkey in a tree next door. This was just the beginning. Later in our trip my sister-inlaw had a green parrot land on her head while sitting on a log on the beach. Then had a Scarlet land on the beach 3 feet from my daughter.
Anyway, The house was very comfortable and clean. Plenty of room for our group of ten and we had our cousin visit for a night and that made 12. The pool area was very nice, but the roof of the cabana could use some work to give more shade. A few more lounge chairs would be nice, and some Landscape Lighting would make it a paradise at night.
We walked the beach for miles one day but you need to watch the tides or you will be caught away from the house.
The stairs to the pool at first seemed to be the downside of the house, but after a few times, we figured it was just great exercise. My 84 year old father made the trip a few times but most times we drove him down to the pool.
We did use the cook a few nights and she was wonderful. She went shopping for each meal and it was very nice to be able to enjoy the beach, pool or view until dinner was ready. Sunsets were just incredible!!!
Our stay was just wonderful and if Gary ever wants to sell I would be first in line to buy.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Costa Rica and Gary and his family made sure it was memorable! We were a family group of 12 from 2 years and up. Gary and his son made 3 separate trips to the airport to picks all up and drop us back there. We arrived late at night to the sounds of the ocean and awoke to the most spectacular views! We rented two of Gary's vehicles and toured up and down the coast. Everyone of the recommendations that Gary made, from deep sea fishing, zip lining, to restaurants was excellent and he booked many of the excursions for us. Having the housekeeper was a real treat and the few meals that she did cook for us were delicious! This really is an exceptional property and all the extras just added so much to the experience. After a day of sightseeing, we could relax by the pool, watch the sunsets, play football or ping pong. We even had a fire on the beach one night!
Having the use of the kayaks was an added bonus. Gary and his family did everything they could to make this vacation everything we had dreamed about. It was like having our own travel agent and tour guide all in one. The only downside was it wasn't long enough!! Thanks to Gary and his family. Hope we get to visit your piece of paradise again soon.

Nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5
We had a lot of fun with friends at a very nice place in Costa Rica: Gary´s home.
Gary and his family are living in a house on the same grounds and are at hand should you need any kind of help or information. Knowing South America we appreciated not to be left totally alone for security reasons. We were on the beach in three minutes WALKING (not driving!) and one minute to the pool. The kitchen is well equipped and a maid has been cleaning daily so that we could enjoy our life without having to ask who´s turn it would be to wash the plates, casseroles etc.
We had Gary´s two cars rented at a very reasonable price and he checked daily what had to be checked. I would advise to rent a car because though not far away, walking for chopping is not everybody´s pleasure, especially in Costa Rica warm climate. The town of Jaco is about 15 minutes away (this time driving minutes!) and offers everything you may need. There is a little village nearby that has a little super market, a pharmacy, a baker, a small "restaurant" etc. There is on the beach too, a very simple restaurant that offers delicious food at very reasonable, not to say low, pricing. Thank you Gary, and your family, for your hospitality and for your friendly help during our stay in Costa Rica. Jean-Paul, Trudis and friends

The Perfect Get Away Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
You could go anywhere in Costa Rica, but this house location it is exceptional. I went with a group of family and friends and we just had a wonderful time. The house condition is great, the landscape is awesome, it is located in a beautiful area and away from traffic jams and unpleasant noises. Gary, the owner of the house and his family are very kind and helpful. This place is also clean and it gets cleaned everyday. You can go kayaking, fishing, swimming, exploring and so on, without having to drive far away. Also you have lots of activities near by (driving), like crocodile sightseeing, national parks, visiting Jaco town where have restaurants, clubs, casinos, surfing beaches and more. I truly recommend this place.
