Choosing this property plus the bungalow next door afforded me and my family the experience of truly knowing what it is to live in Costa Rica.

You live around a Fishing Village, in fact we have fishermen living right beside the bungalow. Strike up a friendship with them and buy fresh fish off the boat early each morning!

Or walk or drive into Tarcoles and buy at the fish market!

Experiencing the culture, living and getting to know the locals, being given the opportunity to learn how to handline fish like a local, go snorkelling and even diving to get your lobster lunch which is cooked for you on a beach over a grill!

So many reasons to want to come here!

HOUSE NEAR TARCOLES

  • 4 of 5
There were 8 adults on this trip. 4 stayed stayed in this house and 4 next door. We had a very relaxing time. We were looking for affordable lodging, not a 4 star resort or motel/hotel. We wanted to be immersed in the culture of Costa Rica. We felt very safe and secure here. The locals were all very friendly. Sure wish we spoke Spanish. These houses fit the bill. The houses were clean and bedrooms were air conditioned. A problem with a water heater and an air conditioner were fixed right away. In the 2 story only 1 main shower was working. We made do without the other 2 so never mentioned it. There is a fish camp next to one of the houses. It was interesting watching them as they headed out and returned each day. Patri did an absolutely wonderful job at taking care of our every need. We enjoyed coffee every morning with the Macaws and Frigates and local dogs. They seemed to know we were dog lovers and were waiting for us every morning when we stepped outside. Walked the beach a few times everyday. You won't want to swim here. Very rocky and the commercial shrimpers come too close to shore and keep the water stirred up. There is swimming a short walk away. We used the pools everyday. Tarcoles is a small fishing village. It is a close enough walk via beach, at low tide, or road for supplies. If you walk the beach you will encounter the boat "yard" where the locals mend nets and fix boats. We also took the bus to Heradura and Jaco a few times. Another reviewer mentioned how the trucks using their jake brakes was a problem. Yes you can hear them but actually this did not bother us. Very much enjoyed meeting Gino and Maria form Tico Style Tours, Gilbreth, of Jaco Travels and Herra and his family who kept up the grounds and pool. Herra brought us different local fruits each day from his garden. What a joy that was trying fruits we had never heard of before. Being so close to the ocean and being able to hear it at night was so relaxing. We grilled fresh fish and shrimp from the fish coop. We had a very good time. Thanks again to Patri for helping make this a memorable vacation.

GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We were just there in June. The house fit us just perfect. We had 3 couples and had a blast. The pool was very enjoyable when you wanted to cool off ffrom the humidity. Patri was the best !! she handeled all of our excursions.. Geno and his crew were awesome. They cooked our catch of the day and the lobster were outstanding, Espically right there on the beach. Renting a car is a must just to explore costa rica. Do Not Go To OutBack Jacks !!! The food is terriable and expensive for what it is. The Crocadile tour is well worth the money. The local bakery right down the street was a great suprise for a light breakfast or desert. If you like to drink bring some money. Imperial beer ( costa rica beer) very good but at 32.00 us a case was a little high.. The local food was very good and affordable. The beach was a little rocky but you can find better beaches just down the Road. It was a great trip and cant wait to go back. Thanks again Parti, You are the best.. Pura Vida !!

GREAT TIME!

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in Costa Rica and felt at home. Patri and staff were helpful and responded to our requests and needs. The house is quite basic but comfortable and great for families with young children (a fancy home would be hard with little ones). The grounds were very well kept. Our view and sunsets each night were spectacular. The pool was awesome expecially after a day adventure to cool off and refresh. Patri helped us with tours but we also booked some things on our own that we had researched. The Arenal Volcano and Baldi Hot Springs are a must to see but you would need to plan at least an overnight. We would have taken 2-3 nights had we known or expected the travel time to be as long as it was. We enjoyed a lunch at Outback Jacks which is very close to the house on Rt 34 (I think). We also did the Tico Tour with Gino...boat ride, line fishing, beaches, fresh caught fish cooked on the beach, a nature walk and snorkeling..with Gino's expertise and knowledge of his native region. We felt secure and safe, Jarra checked the grounds regularly...we often saw his walk by and check beach while we were sitting on the balcony in the evenings. If we had researched a bit more before planning our vacation we probably would have only rented the house for 3-5 days, not because of the house, but because there is so much to do and see in Costa Rica. We probably would have done a few days in Tarcoles, a few in Manuel Antonio and a few in Arenal/La Fortuna. So much to do, a week was a little too short! Thanks for a great vacation!

NICE, BUT

  • 2 of 5
We just spent a week at this rental in the small fishing village of Tarcoles. the pool and grounds were so pretty and well kept. The house was very dated. It was clean but the beds were soft and the plumbing needed desperate attention. Patri and her workers were very attentive and kept the outside very clean. We have traveled in other remote places and weren't too surprised about most things, but amazed that others had rated it as a 5 star, outside yes, inside no way.

My family and I had a wonderful time in Tarcoles. Patri the caretaker was more than helpful during our stay. She arranged tours for us and answered our numerous questions. The staff that kept the pool land grounds clean were very friendly. We were within a 5 minute walk to Outback Jacks restaurant and it was one of our favorite dining spots.

Our only complaint would be that our air conditioners didn't seem to keep up with the heat. I think if we had mentioned this earlier Patri would have resolved the problem. All in all we had a great stay. I think that anyone staying here should have a vehicle as the beach area isn't as nice as others nearby.

GREAT VACATION GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time in Costa Rica and we really enjoyed our stay at "Casa Cabo Alto"! The pool was refreshing after our daily excursions and the views of the Pacific were awesome. The grounds were well maintained by the staff on a daily basis and they were very helpful in getting us extra items that we needed. It was exciting to wake up to macaws eating almonds from the alomond trees on the property, and picking fresh mangos was fun. We even managed to get a couple of coconuts down from the tree next to the pool! The air-conditioned bedrooms were a comfortable place to lay your head at night. The washing machine was a nice feature and we used it several times. We found several food markets and a pharmacy within a short drive and there was a fun bar/restuarant within walking distance that we enjoyed several meals at. I would highly recommend a local crocodile tour and ziplining tour that the property manager can help set up for you. Overall, we had a great experience here and would highly recommend it!
