Why stay in a hotel when you can stay in this Serene, oceanfront house with your own private pool and beach area for less? The grounds are private and have a picturesque view of the ocean and surrounding hills. You will enjoy listening to the waves while having your morning coffee & spectacular sunsets at 'atardecer' in your cozy 'rancho.' At certain times of the year the beach in front can be very rocky, but you can walk a short distance down the beach to enjoy sandier beaches.
This home is great home for small or large groups. If you have a very large group, you can also rent my house next door that sleeps 9+ - VRBO #41740
The house is on the fringe of the small Fishing Village called Tarcoles that is less than an hour drive from the Int'l Airport, 25/30 minutes to Jaco, 20 minutes to Herradura & the Marriott Resort, 30 minutes to Hermosa, International Surfing Beach. Tarcoles Beach is the closest pacific coast beach from the San Jose airport.

* A full kitchen, 3 bedrooms with a/c, and sleeps 6 people
* One good quality queen sized air mattress is also available
* Two bedrooms have double beds, and 1 bedroom with 2 twin beds. A crib is also available
* There are 2 bathrooms
* For large groups, you can also book the house next door, which sleeps 9+
* Cable TV, DVD/VCR player, washing machine
* HANDICAPPED FRIENDLY
LOCAL ATTRACTIONS: canopy tours, Manuel Antonio National Park, Carara Biological Reserve, horseback riding, fishing, surfing, whitewater rafting, crocodile safaris, bird watching tours, volcano and hot springs, golf, island boat tours, snorkeling, biking, hiking, and orchid plantations.
PROPERTY MANAGEMENT: The property manager, PATRI, speaks English and Spanish. She can help you arrange car rentals, transportation to/from the airport, and tours.
Choosing this property plus Casa Cabo Alto 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 next door. 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!
My family and I stayed at this property for three weeks. To say that this property met and exceeded the requirements for our Costa Rican dream vacation is an understatement. The house had three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, dining room, and a kitchen. The bedrooms were supplied with everything one needs for comfort and convenience. The location was excellent as the house is situated next to a quaint fishing village, which provided a quiet and serene setting. You can hear the waves crashing from every room in the house while macaws are squawking and eating from the almond trees along the back fence line. The pool added to the beautiful setting and provided for a much-needed cool down after a day’s worth of adventure.
What is most important about this property is that the service we received by the staff, but in particular, Patri the Property Manager was superior in every manner. Upon arrival, one member in our party became ill. Patri rushed over to make sure they were okay and then took her to the local doctor to ensure she received care. Patri arranged every detail of our trip so that we did not have to plan anything except for telling her the activity we wished to do. I can say that this was a true vacation in the sense that the house provided relaxation due to its location and the service provided by Patri and her staff. The service was personal and first rate. If you want, a Costa Rican vacation that provides a glimpse of true “Tico” lifestyle while including the adventure or relaxation elements desired then this house will meet or exceed your expectations.
My family and I stayed at this great house for 2 weeks. There were 5 adults and 2 kids in are group and the house was great with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The kitchen was very well equipped and the large dinning table was large enough for all of us to eat together. The outside area was also great with and eating area that was great for the morning coffee. The pool was an added bonus and the complete family enjoyed it every day. Patri and the staff are very nice and helpful and the kids loved "Freddie" the cat that would come by every day to visit. The location of the house was nice as Tarcoles was very close and Jaco was only a 15 minute drive away. The beach area in front of the house was nice and always lots of birds to look at but the best part of the house location was the daily visits by the beautiful scarlet macaws!!!! We look forward in returning for our next family holiday.
This is older house so if you want a fancy new house don't stay here. WE had a great time and the pool was great to have. We spent hours by the pool. This was our fourth trip to Costa Rica. There are many nice beaches and walking trails near the house. Patri and staff are great. The pool is cleaned every day and the grounds every other day.We loved the sunsets by the pool every night. We were given the senior discount, so rare.
The property in question met our needs perfectly. We were looking for a rustic beach home in a native Costa Rican neighborhood that could accomodate 6 people comfortably. This unit was just what we needed. We bought freshly caught fish from one of the neighbors as they returned from their nightly fishing trip. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach was wonderful. Petri and her staff were very accomodating and helpful. We would like to return to this facility again next year for a month.
My wife and I rented this little 'cottage' with great hopes. Unfortunately we were disappointed for 3 reasons 1) there is a highway very close to the property with a long downhill slope and a curve at the bottom. In Costa Rica, the truckers use Jake Brakes to slow down, and they have them like I have never heard in Canada, or any where else in the world. You can expect that when you are trying to sleep or when you are sitting by the pool you will be blasted by the sound of the trucks. They run from 6 am to about 11 pm, but one will go by every hour during the night which will wake you up. 2) the location is very sheltered and it is HOT, but the problem is the main part of the house is not air conditioned and it has a steel roof. It is unbearably hot until the middle of the night, and we were there in November without a lot of sunshine, so I can't imagine what it is like in the sunny, hot season; and 3) the main river in Costa Rica that empties the sewage out of San Jose enters the ocean very close to this house, so the beach is dirty and the ocean is a muddy color with a very bad odor. Also, the pool was very cold and not very attractive. The bed was incredibly hard. The air conditioner in the bedroom was terribly loud and very old. It wasn't a vacation.
We got a good price on the rental, and we were planning on staying 5 nights. We left after the first night and received a refund of 1/3 of the rental. We moved further down the coast and found a fabulous 3 bedroom house, almost new, for only a few dollars more. I could not recommend this 30 or 40 year old cottage it unless you live in a very hot climate and are deaf.
Patri was very nice and I believe she was very disappointed that we were unhappy. She did her best to try to find us something else, but we wanted a place different than the other units she had available. We appreciated getting some refund.
We had a wonderful time in Jaco. The house we rented served all our needs. Patri was excellent with helping us while we were there. The pool was a great we had fun swimming when we came home each day.I would recommend this property to others travelling to Jaco.
