Happy New Year 2019!!
We gathered at Casa Overlook the week of New Years Eve 2018/19 , all 17 of us ranging in age from 9 to 80+ and the experience was absolutely amazing.
The house was perfect (8 bdrm) to allow everyone their own space but all could gather very comfortably in the pool/patio/living/kitchen area and enjoy looking out at the view of Hermosa Beach with incredibly beautiful skies & surf. We enjoyed the nature around us every day - monkeys, parrots, macaws, lush vegetation - and surprisingly the absence of insects. The housekeepers, Arlin & Richard, were very respectful of our stay and went about doing their work while we continued our activities.
Maricela, the manager, was so pleasant & there for us whenever we had a question. Her response time was amazing. The Catamaran company Maricela recommended was a well run operation and was fun for the whole family. The crew was so helpful and the meal served was amazing. We recommend the afternoon cruise so you get to see the sunset.
Jaco was a short trip and the surfing group would go in the mornings, rent boards and enjoy the town Jaco while they were there. We found the grocery store in Jaco to be well stock with all that was needed but there was also a small convenience store very close to the house.
Another recommendation from Maricela was Gustavo Barquero , “Master Chef Services”. We enjoyed two meals prepared & served by Gustavo & Company. They cook right in the house, set up the table, serve the meal & clean up. Highly recommended by all of us.
Maricela also arranged for massage therapists to come to the house for our relaxing pleasure.
Nauyaca Waterfalls, mojitos on Hermosa Beach at the “Backyard Bar” and just relaxing at the house - our memories from this vacation are endless.
The property manager was very helpful.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
I stayed at casa Mandolina for 13 nights with two other friends. The house and pool are beautiful . The sound of the waves was therapeutic, many days you will find yourself relaxed and lazy and when you leave you will miss this sound. Gabriel is the manager and was perfect as usual , he is ready to take on any task that you may need to make your stay here satisfying. The grocery stock option was convenient for us because we arrived late and most stores were closed . There is security at the house 9 am - 9pm , dont let this scare you the area seemed very safe and at no time did we ever feel unsafe there . This is not a place to throw parties , if your interested in relaxing and soaking up the sun ,sounds of the ocean and the sunsets ... this is the perfect place to do it ! Highly recommended. It is at the end of calle Morales which is very close to the centre of jaco. The house is 5 minutes from a great gym to workout at and selinas is 5 minutes away which was a great place to hang out and mingle with good people . This house get 5 out of 5 and I highly recommend it .
