Great Home! Great Value! Great Host!

  • 5 of 5

I was part of a group of six adults and two children staying at this most awesome home for Christmas 2014. In every group, some can be comfortable, while others not.

I loved Gary's home! Everything that is needed can be found here!

I loved waking up before sunrise, sitting on the back porch with my husband watching the sun rise over the beach.

Pool stayed in almost constant use. We used the built-in barbecue located next to the pool. This area also boasts showers, bathrooms, and volleyball net with ball! ready for a fun family game. In the backyard, the fence door opens right onto the beach. After walking on the beach there is a water hose making it easy to rinse the sand off.

This house is in a perfect beach location! Really enjoyed walking for a couple of miles after the tide rolls out in the morning. Beautiful landscape, lots of nice people to meet.

Most amenities Gary listed were put to good use, #1- WIFI! The Ping-Pong table held several matches, the foosball table saw some action. Even my husband enjoyed the rope swing… we have pictorial evidence. We enjoyed puzzles at the table in the evenings. On Christmas, we played our annual game of Risk which lasted to the next day! We left the game for many others to enjoy.

If you like open air, then this home offers it! Large windows with large doors that allow good circulation throughout the main part of the house - gives a "beachy" feel and not closed up. Plenty of ceiling fans throughout the house!

Full kitchen with plenty of counter-space. A large refrigerator and pantry. Easy to cook breakfast and dinners when desired.

Bedrooms were spacious. If a box fan is not in your room, ask Gary and for an extension cord if need be!

It is true the shower water is not American standard hot. Gary was able to adjust the water from being tepid to warm.

Gary is the best host ever! Shortly after arriving my husband became ill from a flu he picked up at work and unable to travel to the airport the next day to pick up the rest of our group. At a moment's notice, Gary was able to make the second trip but also stop by the pharmacy to get flu medicine. His wife immediately provided two icepacks.

Everybody's opinion matters, but only you can decide what is important to you! If you are looking for Pura Vida in Costa Rica with the greatest host, the greatest place, at the greatest price… choose property #17355!

A Treasure on the Costa Rican Coast!

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful and right on the beach. Pictures do not do this property justice. Whether you go to relax or use this place as a base of operations for your adventure, you will not be dissatisfied. Gary is quite possibly the best host I've ever met. He had to get tired of our questions even though he made me think they were all important to him. We will be back, again, and again, and again, and again!!

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.
