GREAT POOL

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the house. The best part about the place was the pool. It was clean, beautiful and right outside your bedroom door! They had pool toys and towels to use.
The listing was quite accurate. The pictures were very helpful. I was impressed with the fact that the house had a crib and a highchair for our kids. The house keeper and cook were very kind and made us feel right at home. We had a large group and the house fit us perfectly. With all the seperate rooms, each couple had their own room for privacy.
The lot was right on the beach, which was beautiful at night. The waves turned up the sand a little but it was still great.
The location was a little difficult to get to places but only because of the traffic around the country.
My only suggestion would be to have a list of local restuarants and good tours. It would be helpful to have a pitcure to send to people for the last turn to the house.
The house was perfect but the location was not ideal for our travel desires.
We had a great time. I would definately tell others to go, escpecially if they have a big group.
Thanks for everything!

GREAT FAMILY VACATION SPOT - CENTRAL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My family rented this property for the week We had 4 adults and 3 kids ages 2-9. The place is spacious and great for kids as they loved swimming in the pool everyday. The location is very central to explore locations nearby (Manuel Antonio, Montezuma, Los Suenos). The caretakers were wonderful and very helpful. For an additional $25/day we were able to have home cooked meals which was a treat. The home is a bit on the older side but very clean, safe and comfortable as long as you are not expecting luxury (if so you should stay at a resort and pay the price!) Great place to have a family reunion and hang out with family members. We used Varsso Travel for our excursions and they would come to house and drive us where we needed to go so you don't even need to rent a car unless you want the freedom to venture off on your own.

AMAZING VACATION

  • 5 of 5
12 adults just arrived home from our amazing Costa Rican vacation and I wanted to right a review to express what a great time we all had. The house is roomy for 12 adults, each couple having their own bathroom really made traveling together in such a large group easier. The hosue is nicely laid out with common areas upstairs and downstairs to gather for eating/playing games/hanging out.
The pool is AWESOME! Great to lounge by or jump into after a day gone on an excursion. The weather was very humid while we were there and it was great to end our evening swimming in the pool. Arturo was always aviable with pool towels and he was cleaning/skimming the pool early each morning and making sure it was sparkling clean.
I cannot say enough good things about Maribel and Artuor the caretakers of the home/cook. Maribel cooked all our meals for us, which was so much easier than getting 12 people to a restaurant everyday. Her cooking was fantastic. She cooked local food as well as whatever we requested. The both really made us feel at home and we were sad to have to leave them behind.
Rich the owner of the home was always avialble to answer any questions I may have, he gave great suggestions and was a complete pleasure to work with.
We also used varso travel to handle all of our excursions, it was much more convinent than having to rent multiple cars to get such a large anywhere. They picked us up right at the house and we had a great time on each tour we took.
I would reccomend Casa Rector to any family of any age to enjoy a group vacation!

AMAZING FAMILY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from 10 days at this wonderful resort. Our family of 14 including 6 adults and 8 kids ages ranging from 7 to 17 had the perfect vacation centered around this family friendly house. The layout is like a small hotel with 5 suites. All the rooms can accomdate anywhere from 2 to 3 people and there are amazing indoor and outdoor common areas. Room for those who want their own space and for those who want to be together. The large dining table makes communal dinners fun and festive and also serves for a place to gather and play games. The pool area is amazing and the backyard complete with a volley ball net is large and inviting. The house backs up to the ocean where you can hear the waves crash at night and there are boogy boards available to play with in the ocean. We paid an unbelievably small fee to have the caretaker's wife, Maribel make our meals and it was sooo worth the money. She is an expert chef satisfying those of us that are more adventurous as well as kids and those that prefer more American cooking. She also did our laundry. Arturo, the caretaker is hard working and made sure our trip went smoothly. He kept the pool and grounds immaculate, went to the fish market to pick up fresh fish for dinner, ensured we were safe and well taken care of. Maribel and Arturo were like family by the end of the trip. We also used Varso travel to take us on our excursions, they are a family owned company, very honest and very reasonable. We did 3 all day excursions with them and they took care of us like family. Definitely the way to go vs. renting your own car especially if you have a large group. I highly recommend meeting with them on your first day to plan out your vacation. We could not have found a better place to have our family reunion and i highly recommend it for anyone but especially for large groups.

AN AMAZING HONEYMOON EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
Our honeymoon EXCEEDED all of our expectations. We literally had the time of our lives.

I'm sure you have heard this a hundred times, but we simply cannot say enough about Maribel and Arturo. They were the sweetest and kindest human beings we've ever encountered. Her cooking was AMAZING! They both went ABOVE and BEYOND what we expected.

We had a really amazing experience on our trip. We were doing some exploring and wound up getting our car stuck in the mud at the bottom of a large hill in VERY rural town inland of Jaco (pretty much the middle of nowhere) and a man came out of his shack to help us. He called some friends who came down with a wench and one had a very old tractor. They spend 4.5 hours inching our car up the hill of mud in the pouring rain and wouldn't quit. When we offered money as a thank you they all refused and said the did it out of their hearts. Our rental car company wouldn't even come out to get us or help us b/c they had no idea where we were. We were so humbled by their help that it literally has changed our entire outlook on life and we couldn't be more grateful for such an amazing experience and life lesson. Our car, clothes and shoes were trashed with red mud and Arturo cleaned out the car (it was coated in mud) without us even asking. Ryan went to go help him out and Arturo insisted we enjoy our vacation while he cleaned the car. Arturo even cleaned our our filthy shoes.

The house was beautiful and incredibly clean. The pictures didn't do the property justice! We are already planning a trip back to Casa Rector in 2012 with some friends and family!

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.

Also Varso Travel worked out great. We'll definitely use them again. We used them for a tour to Arenal volcano hot springs and really enjoyed the trip.

WE WOULD COME BACK!

  • 5 of 5
Our overall experience was fantastic! Rich, the owner, was very attentive, even down to the detail of providing for a ride for us from the airport. Initally taken back by the less than ideal curb appeal, Casa Rector more than lived up to our expectations. The oceanside view was as beautiful as the picture on the internet. The parrots and the puppies (Bronco & Coco) only made the stay better! They were perfect stand-ins for our pets at home! Maribel and Arturo were delightful to work with, and Maribel's cooking could open a restaurant! Arturo's concern for our well being was top notch. We utilized the high chair for one of the babes in our rather large entourage of 12. We loved the privacy that the separate bedrooms provided as we were traveling as a family group. We had four couples, two singles, and two babies. The house accomodated us perfectly, as it also had a shared, screened-in veranda for eating and hanging out! The pool was very well maintained, and we spent so much time there. We didn't spend as much time on the beach at the property as we had planned, because the surf was more rough and brought in more debris, which made the water murky. We still enjoyed body surfing though! We followed Rich's recommendation of not renting a vehicle in country, and instead went with Varso Travel Agency, who provided excellent curbside service. We did enjoy the tranopy rainforest tour in Jaco, which was ok for our babies, as long as you have someone to watch them when the rest of you zip-line! :) We were disappointed in the total expense required for a day on Tortuga Island. Be prepared to pay for absolutely everything, including the use of the bathroom! The island itself was amazingly gorgeous! All in all, we had a phenomenal time in Costa Rica, especially our time at Casa Rector! By the way, never fly Spirit Air! :)

From the house it is very easy to make plans for sightseeing, fishing, rafting, and viewing the rain forest and volcanoes. A major hotel with a casino is located one mile from the house where all tourism plans can be made. The town of Jaco is a half hour by car south. It attracts many surfers for the beach's large waves and also tourists for its excellent restaurants and shops.
