Great location on the Central Pacific coast of Costa Rica. New house in quiet subdivision with great neighbors. Watch the monkeys and parrots in the backyard trees!
In-between Jaco and Manuel Antonio park. Zip lining, river tours, surfing, couple of restaurants and store in walking distance.

We currently reside in Idaho Falls, ID - although would like to spend more time in our house in Costa Rica. Jobs don't allow for that now, we must wait. Hopefully, we will be able to retire to this paradise in the coming years. My wife, Shari, is a nurse. I'm Robert, a small business owner and part-time accountant. We both enjoy the active lifestyle that Costa Rica affords from the volcanoes to the great beaches!
Bob Raymond purchased this house in 2009
We've always wanted a place next to the ocean and beach as having lived in landlocked states in the US. Bejuco is a great location. Small, friendly, safe and, in many ways, like the US 50 years ago. Bejuco is paradise to us. The beach is never crowded and palm trees almost up to the water. It is a surfer's dream. We liked the small subdivision with only about 40 homes and the 24 hour guarded gate entrance. A small store is close as are a few restaurants. Convenience without the larger cities, yet nearby Jaco is a close drive. It only takes 5 minutes to walk to the beach and we usually have the beach to ourselves.
We like the friendly neighbors, the safety and security of a 24 hour gated community. The community pool is always refreshing and we usually have it to ourselves. The complete kitchen allows you to cook all the meals you want and the nearby restaurants to also visit. The washer and dryer allows you to wash your clothes, so minimize the clothes to bring. A lush backyard enables you to view the parrots and monkeys that live and frequent the area.
After spending two weeks in this lovely home in a charming neighborhood in a great location we couldn't agree more with all that was said in previous reviews. AND watching sunsets over the Pacific a real plus. Very friendly neighbors, guards and locals. Only drawback for us was that during most of our stay the heat and humidity made for three shower days. Aside from that our stay was a very enjoyable experience.
We stayed at this great home for a week on our month long trip to Costa Rica. Bob was helpful with directions and advice before we left and our trip from San Jose went very smoothly. My wife and I met the neighbors and they were all a great source of local information and answered all the questions we had. The development has a nice pool and BBQ along with being just a nice walk to Playa Bejuco. And with the 24X7 security the property is very safe - not always the case in some other places we visited while in Costa Rica.
We went to Jaco, where there are banks, restaurants, and everything you need. There is an Auto Mercado in Jaco plus a Maxi Palis for groceries etc and the drive is very pleasant. There is also a couple of grocery stores in Parrita ( closed than Jaco ), and a great little seafood store just behind the bus stop. The Covina was fresh and good...
We traveled to Quepos and Manual Antonio - beautiful spot if you have the time.
Hotel Playa Bejuco is a great spot for dining - and very reasonable prices. The Delfin is also a great place to watch the sunset.
The home is perfect, and the other reviews here are very accurate - and we would add that it is a great home base for many activities up and down the coast. Did I mention that the Playa is beautiful?
I spent just about three weeks in this great little house. I did not take time to write a review which I regret and have meant to return and write it but forgot which I apologize for. The house is clean and well stocked. The community is safe and beautiful and I enjoyed the pool with my friend that came down for part of my trip. Arlene, Greg and Mike from across the street were so helpful as was Bob the owner. The house is comfortable and everything is in working order. The guards make you feel safe as they seem to patrol making sure everything is safe. We left our stuff in the house locked and never did have any issues. The beach is a short walk and it was fun to find shells and sand dollars. We sometimes ate at the restaurant along the road to the beach and the food was very good as well as the prices were great. I am planning on renting the house again, it was great!
My boyfriend and I just got back from a weeklong trip in Costa Rica. We stayed in Bob and Shari's beautiful house in Bejuco. The house itself is gorgeous. It was clean and ready upon our arrival and was stocked with stuff for our stay - towels, detergent, soap, etc. The house is spacious and well decorated. The backyard is private and filled with plants, trees and animals. The house is located in a gated secure community, so we felt comfortable leaving our stuff in the house when we were gone. It was a quick five minute walk to the beach, which we usually had almost completely to ourselves. Along the path to the beach are a few small hotels and a restaurant which pretty much make up the entire town. We enjoyed the relaxed feel of the small town and the privacy. Larger cities, like Jaco, are a short drive (15-20 minutes) and offer much more in the way of restaurants and shops. There is also a small mini-mart type store right next to the entrance to the gated community which actually had a decent selection of food and supplies.
Bob and Shari were nice and helpful – they offered recommendations in response to questions we had prior to the trip. Greg and Arlene are the onsite managers and were very helpful with answering questions during our stay. We got into a little trouble with our car and it was really great to have help from people who knew the local process as well as spoke fluent English. We also ended up arriving a day late and Bob was nice enough to refund the money for our first night’s stay.
Overall we had a fantastic trip and hope to be able to travel to Costa Rica again. We highly recommend Bob and Shari’s house in Bejuco!
