Extended family vacation to Costa Rica
The Jade house is an amazing getaway for a large family group. Property Management was easy to work with and the house was fully stocked with all the necessary amenities. Towels for the pool, towels for bathing, towels for the beach! The view is amazing and we never tired of it! Make sure you rent a 4x4 vehicle because the road up is no joke...if it's your first time to Costa Rica, you might be surprised by the incline on a dirt road. If it's not, you probably are prepared. We ate twice at the Jolly Roger - super convenient and a good variety (burgers, pizza, chicken wings, salad etc) and just a bit down the road. The house was more than we needed (2 families of 5 and grandma/grandpa) - everyone was very comfortable. 4 kings, 2 twins and 6 twins downstairs in the kids room. The 4 kings all had ensuite bathrooms. TV was off almost all week (nice!) but the wifi was enough for the kids to have some downtime with devices when needed - but they spent most of their time at the house in the pools! We saw sloths, howler monkeys, and tucans from the deck!
Beautiful Home in a Beautiful Country
We couldn't have asked for anything better. Space, great furnishings, comfortable beds (bedrooms with AC), luxurious showers, amazing pools overlooking the ocean, shaded spots to get out of the sun, monkeys in the trees, Jolly Roger restaurant within walking distance...
Friendly, accommodating people who worked with us to make sure our vacation was everything we hoped for. Can't wait to go back.
Spectacular home and hospitality
The Jade House was a wonderful home for our extended family of 15 which included 7 teenage boys. The view was spectacular and the house comfortable. Definitely plan hang out time in addition to excursions. We enjoyed Chef Royner and Lupita cooking meals for us most evenings and highly recommend their hospitality and delicious food. Our stay could not have gone more smoothly thanks to the staff at the house and the attention to detail. Many thanks you all helped make celebrating my mother’s 80th birthday very special.
Beautiful property- best part of our vacation!
We had a fantastic time staying at this property. Our family of 12 stayed for 5 nights and didn't want to leave! We loved everything about it, and can't say enough about the staff, who go above and beyond to make your stay special.
Best vacation home ever!
Epic views, beautiful pool(s), great layout for multiple families with what amounts to 4 master suites, kids play room, great kitchen and outdoor cooking area, poolside bar.... the house was part of the vacation!
Bad Luck in a Great House
The house was perfect! We traveled with our two kids who were 1 and 3, and the 3 year old LOVED the kids room! The only negative about that was it was so far from everything else and since he is younger we couldn’t leave him down there by himself. It was an awesome room and had a play kitchen, which he loved! The pools and views were amazing. We saw howlers, 2 sloths (one was a mama and a baby), tons of parrots and toucans. It was fun to watch for wildlife from the pools and patio. We had a couple of private chefs cook for us during our stay, and Chef Roy was phenomenal. He grew up in CR, is easy to talk to, provided a very nice experience and wonderful meals. Highly recommend using him if you stay! The gentleman who stayed on property and his wife were so sweet and incredibly helpful. Unfortunately, upon our arrival on Friday evening, the fridge was not very cold. We bought a few hundred dollars worth of groceries on the way in and hoped it would be cooler in the morning, but it was hotter! :( Having 2 little ones, one being a baby, it was really important to have certain things for them and milk needs to remain cold. We moved what we could save to the bar fridge and put whatever didn’t fit in coolers. Then the ice machine stopped producing ice, so we couldn’t keep coolers filled with ice. Repairmen came Monday to fix the fridge, and it cooled things off, but by Tuesday morning, everything was frozen! Milk, eggs, yogurt, everything! So they came back Tuesday but things were still frozen Wednesday. We left Thursday morning. We ended up losing a ton of food that we could never use because of the issues with the main refrigerator. We had to spend more money to eat out since we couldn’t use what we bought. It was beyond frustrating. I waited several weeks to review this place because property management was going to check with the owners about refunding part of our trip. I’ve not heard anything, which is incredibly disappointing because you would hope they’d want to make it right and encourage their visitors to stay again. We love CR, and this was our third time to the country. We WILL go again, and we would have loved to stay here again because the house itself is fantastic. However, after our experience and the lack of effort to try to make things right once we left, we will probably stay elsewhere.
We appreciate you review and apologize for the unlucky events that occurred during your stay. We understand that a fridge issue is not easy to deal when on vacation. Our onsite staff were very attentive. They were able to provide you with immediate ice coolers replacements for the milk and we repurchased any necessary products that were tarnished. We feel our team provided a consistent check up on the fridge status, being personally there and bringing a technician to the site for repairs. We were astonished to hear about a refund request as it was not spoken to us. We, of course, take this matter very seriously and we always try to find the best possible solution to any experience. If you still wish to consider The Jade House for your next stay in Costa Rica, we can provide you with a special rate for your inconvenience.
