Great Place

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I (two) found this place clean, well appointed, tasteful, safe, comfortable and convenient for the region. The owners were very helpful in making things smooth. We wanted to surf Ostional and parts north and south. Randy and Catherine have set up a great place. It was easy to meet their manager and he was helpful to our stay with suggestions and support in getting food and supplies. We had a pick up, I suppose the drive up over a driveway/hill could be more challenging for a small car. Price was very right for the view, the internet, the monkeys, the bbq, the pool and the cleanliness of the facilities. You can watch the surf @ Ostional come in from various vantage points in the house. Surfing Ostional is a 1 minute drive. Surfing Guiones is a 15 minute drive. We enjoyed the place. One King bedroom and one additional room with bunks. Probably best for a family with kids, a couple (maybe two - but one couple sacrifices to a large lower bunk), or buds who need a clean nice place to crash and recoup for another day of surfing or adventure.

A perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband spent about 12 nights here in December and had a wonderful time. The house is comfortable, and we enjoyed the isolated location. If you're looking for nightlife, look elsewhere! If you want to stroll the beach and watch for hatching baby turtles, or if you're lucky enough to time your visit for the arribada (turtles coming ashore to lay eggs in massive numbers), this is the place for you. Overall, we had very few complaints. A new shower head in the master bath would be a good addition by the owners, as we were unable to use it. Luckily, we were only two people and could make use of the other bathroom. There were numerous encounters with a gardener who came frequently, stayed a long time, and used up most of the water, but the supply was quickly replenished. Although he was very nice, his visits put a bit of a crimp in our privacy because he was often there from the moment we got up in the morning. Otherwise, we were very happy, and would not hesitate to recommend this property to others who are looking for a quiet, isolated time with lots of nature!

Owner's Response: Alison,
Thank you so much for your review. We arrived right when you left and noticed the clogged shower head and cleaned it out with vinegar. Just one of those things that the maid neglected to communicate. The gardeners do their work very early in the morning, at least 2 days a week before the heat sets in. This is very common and we wouldn't have the lush gardens around the house if he didn't. I have never heard the gardener, I have only seen him when I am having my morning coffee on the deck. I hope he never woke you up. He does turn off the house water line when adding water to the pool since it does evaporate rather quickly. I appreciate your mentioning that and we have spoken to him and asked him to let guests know when he is going to do this so you are not stuck without water. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. We had perfect weather in December and never had to use the A/C. Pura Vida, Catherine

What a beautifully kept secret!!!

  • 5 of 5
Randy and Catherine have created an amazingly friendly and charming home on the lower hillside above Ostional Beach. House is clean, pool is wonderful, all well thought out and well kept...we needed for nothing and had a fantastic time. We really felt like it was our private beach - every day we went out exploring and visiting other local areas only to return to Ostional and wonder why we left?/! There are a couple of great restaurants very nearby, 2 small jewels of hotels whose food we really enjoyed just a few minutes north and the Ziplining was UNBELIEVABLE! the surfing at Ostional was absolutley perfect for 8 straight days!!! All I can say is pack lighly, take your family or loved one/s and go experience the 'Pura Vida' Costa Rica is really about...

Beautiful home in the jungle

  • 5 of 5
I would highly recommend this vacational rental. We spent two weeks at this beautiful home surfing with the locals, lounging by the pool, watching the sunsets and lighting storms from the front porch, listening to the monkeys from the outdoor shower and cooking fabulous feasts including lobster from San Juanillo. The owners and property manager were very helpful in answering our questions and resolving any issues we encountered.

Amazing week at La Perla!

  • 5 of 5
We were very impressed with the house, it is beautiful and very functional. Everything you need is there and even more. Just a short walk from a super quiet beach with great waves to surf. Surf early in the morning and at the beautiful sunset and chill around the pool during the day. What more can you ask for! For those who like to dine out, I recommend the restaurant Luna Azul which is about a 15 minutes drive from there. It was an overall great experience and I strongly recommend it. We'll be back for sure!

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5
Peace and quiet, security, privacy, the wildlife and the watching amazing sunsets in the living room are what I love about this place. Hearing the monkeys talk every morning and never hearing or seeing neighbors or traffic (equals no dust!!) but close enough to restaurants/bars and towns for shopping is exactly what I expect for rest and relaxation and I get it here... feels like home.

The big kitchen, massive dining table and pool always work overtime during our stays here. Not to mention the fact that the surrounding hillsides funnel any type of breeze into the house allows us to exist without AC. And I love the beach and wave that I can walk to for surf or strolls along the beach... no car or ATV needed like so many other hilltop vacation homes require. Doesn't get any better than this in Costa Rica unless your looking for a resort setting with partying and noise. ;)

Thanks Randy and Catherine, you guys have created an awesome place... We will continue to come back here!

PS- Thanks for adding the wifi! I can stay connected to the world (to my girlfriends dismay) without ever leaving the house.
