AMAZING HOUSE, BEST FAMILY VACATION EVER!!

  • 5 of 5
First we would like to thank Abner for his superb Costa Rican hospitality, he is the best. He made our too short of a vacation a worthwhile vacation. We are definitely going to visit Costa Rica again and plan to stay a Casa Infinito. Second, we would like to thank the owners Sheryl and Duncan for letting us share your home for five wonderful days of our lives. This house looks and is everything and more that is described in the profile. We tried our very best to treat it as if it was ours by taking great care of it. Being a family of 4 with two teens made this house wonderful. With more than enough room for everyone to have their separate quarters and room to roam. We were sold on this house when we saw the pictures of the infinity pool; and it being in the jungle hidden from others. This house is truly "A home away from home". It has every kitchen gadget and tools a home chef will need (minus a rolling pin). I made beef patties and did not find a rolling pin for my dough. Other than that, this house supplies you with everything.

Being that we had only 5 days in Costa Rica, with Abner's assistance we tried to make the best of our time. Some of the highlights we enjoyed were DEFINITELY Zip-Lining; it was AMAZING! The horse back ride after the zip-line excursion was just okay. The next exciting activity was the white water rafting; again a very fun, amazing and unforgettable excursion. We enjoyed the ride to Manuel Antonio and visiting the national park with the animal/insect sightings. It is worth the extra cost to have a guide at the park, so that you can see the animals and insects up close. Without the guide and the telescope you will see nothing. The beach at the park were also amazing; much better than the beaches in Jaco. Abner also took us on a ride and stopped at several exclusive hotels along the way. They were very beautiful and had amazing views. For lunch Abner took us to a Costa Rican restaurant in Jaco (off a side street) that served very good food at a very reasonable price. We trusted Abner some much that he took our 17 year-old son to the beach to surf for his very first time. Our son really enjoyed himself, and would like to thank Abner again for taking him. He will never forget it. The property management company that services the house, was very pleasant and helpful when answering questions. We can't say enough about our visit to Jaco, Costa Rica and can not wait for a our return vacation to Costa Rica. Chao!

Incredible family vacation in Costa Rica!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 5 and I had an absolutely wonderful time in Costa Rica, thanks in big part to Casa Infinito! First off, the location was perfect. Up the hill a little bit so that you feel like you are really in the rainforest, but close enough to drive down to shops and local restaurants.

I can't say enough about how awesome it was to be spending a week at a home like this one. It was beautiful inside and out. The pool was the perfect end to a long day of adventures. After all of the fun that we had each day, we could not wait to get back to our house and enjoy our time there. We ordered pizza one night, and made dinner 2 of the nights in our own kitchen because we just loved being there! There were 6 of us total, 3 couples, and we felt that there was ample space for all of us to spread out. We did not rent the extra jungle suite because we did not need it, but that would be perfect for a couple who wanted a little more privacy.

I think the best part of the house was the wildlife!! A few times during the week we got to see the white faced monkeys right on our balcony! They were SO cute! One of them even knocked on the door :) There were also tons of birds everywhere! There were 2 toucans who sat in a tree not far from the house and made their noises every afternoon right before sunset! I wanted to see wildlife while in Costa Rica, and we got it all from our own home.

A couple of suggestions while in Costa Rica:
Ocean Ranch Eco Park is right down the road. This is where we zip lined and took an ATV tour. The guys were SO NICE. My mom was terrified to zip line, but they made us all feel so safe and were constantly making sure that she felt comfortable, and by the time she finished the first line she was laughing and enjoying herself. She said she wished we could do more!

"Costa Rica Waterfall Tours" based out of Jaco is where we did our 'explorer' tour of the waterfalls. It was seriously incredible. I never expected to do what we did on that tour, but it was an unforgettable experience. Again, with my mom who was a little nervous, the guide made us feel completely safe and we had a fabulous time.

For a local dinner right down the hill we went to Booey's Place. Great food and atmosphere.

Don't go on a snorkel tour in the rainy season! Literally NO visibility. Wish we had been told!

I really can't thank Sheryl enough for the time that we had in Costa Rica. It was a trip our family will never forget thanks in large part to Casa Infinito!
