Property's Quality Was Matched By AMAZING Owner and Property Manager

  • 5 of 5

This is not our ordinary VRBO stay. In fact, I rarely write reviews though I value them greatly; I need to be better!

All that said, we are from the western US and had a trip planned to Dominical, Costa Rica. The Thursday before our scheduled departure (just 3 days), I received a troubling phone call that due to unforeseen circumstances, our original property would no longer be available. We went into panic mode and decided we didn't need to be RIGHT ON the beach. So we opened our search up to those homes NEARBY the beach. This was the BEST BAD NEWS OF ALL TIME!

We emailed Bruce to inquire about availbility. Sparing you the details, him and his property manager Tom, bent over backwards to arrange all of our details. Tom checked on us regular while we were there. Bruce checked on us via email and wanted to make sure we had all we needed.

And that was just the manager side. This property is BREATHTAKING!! The jungle, the ocean, the pool, the home itself --- we use VRBO frequently, travel a fair amount --- and the combination of it all is UNSURPASSED BY ANYPLACE WE'VE EVER BEEN!

As long as one understands a few things:

1 - This is the jungle, there will be bugs and geckos and things. Nothing to even worry over as long as you know they come with the territory.

2 - Houses need repairs sometimes - the AC unit went out while we were there -- which underscores the AWESOME managers -- they had it fixed PROMPTLY!!!

3 - You will not have WalMarts, or Costcos, or even a neighborhood market that you're accustomed to. That's what we wanted, though. Crowded little non-ac shops. Side of the road fruit trucks, etc.

4 - The drive up to the house is an adventure in and of itself! It's literally only 5 minutes up the dirt road -- but it is UP THE DIRT ROAD! My kids liked it better than the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland! All part of the experience:)

Summary - I wish I could give this a 10-star review. Our absolute favorite family vacation in 18 years of marriage and raising a family!!!

luxury in the jungle

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time in the jungle villa. It's beautiful and luxurious. The infinity pool was just the right size for our two families. The big kitchen is equipped with everything you might need. We're grateful for the hint to buy the produce in Herradura supermarket by the lighthouse, there is nothing like this around the house if you're planning to cook there. Over the 5 days in the house we got to see toucans, humming birds, wild black pigs, and once even an anteater. We saw plenty of monkeys and sloths in neighboring Hacienda Baru, which is just across the road from the villa, so no problem there. Tom was amazing, very helpful with any problems that needed fixing and extremely generous with his time. He showed us around the community - it has two waterfalls right there! The only minor suggestion I would have is to have a hairdryer in the house. We couldn't find one, but maybe we missed it. Thank you so much again for all your hospitality!

Sublime experience and setting

  • 5 of 5

I have lived and worked in Costa Rica for 20 years and while this country is stunningly beautiful it is rare to find properties which combine, luxury, tranquility, and a setting which celebrates all the natural beauty without sacrificing luxury. Villa Toucan Breeze give you the best of both worlds. The setting in the unique Guapil Tropical Estate community gives you a convenient location which is close to the communities of Dominical, Hatillo and Manuel Antonio but a world apart. You drive through the rainforest up to the home, which appears like an oasis of luxury in the middle of the rainforest. The views are never ending, from Cano Island up to Manuel Antonio. There are amazing breezes at the house and we had daily visits from the toucans, Pizotes, white faced monkeys, and a host of other creatures and birds you would need a biologist to identify!

The house itself is spacious, perfectly equipped and was awesome. I was there with my family of 4, inlays and another family. there are effectively 4 master suites, so everyone has their space and privacy. the kitchen has everything you need and while restaurants are nearby, we just relaxed, cooked and let time slip by. The enormous pool and landscaped gardens had us outside from dawn until well into the evening, just enjoying the breezes, views and wildlife.

PURA VIDA WITH A VIEW

  • 5 of 5

The pictures represented on the vrbo site are truly what you get. 4 couples had a fabulous time in this beautiful home. Great pool, we had early morning coffee looking at our gorgeous view and listening to the waves crash below on the beach. Note you can't walk from the house to the beach, it will require a drive but five minutes top. We saw animals galore, even a sloth due to our wonderful caretaker Tom. We loved the privacy of the home - no home has views to another home. If you're an adventure seeker, or just want to lay back - this is the place. Definately need the 4x4 to get to this place but worth the trek.

Great views, perfect set up for two families!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at this beautiful home with great views and outdoor living area. Just outside Dominical, we loved that it was away from it all with abundant wildlife, yet easy to get to Dominical and surrounding areas. We saw a sloth, toucans, capuchin monkeys, a coati, scarlett macaws and more from the home our in the neighborhood. We loved that it was high up and away from bugs and had a breeze. The pool area is great, Tom was wonderful and attended to every question we had. The two floors with bedrooms that were all comparable made for a perfect layout for two families. All in all, this was one of our best vacations and we felt the house was a home run.

Awesome property and location

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful, very comfortable, very tastefully furnished and equipped with everything you will need. The location is to die for. The house is situated very high up on a hill overlooking the water. You do need a 4X4 to get there. The pool area is gorgeous. Our first day there we saw monkeys, tucans, and a sloth in the trees surrounding the house. Visit Osa Mountain during your stay if you can. There is ziplining, a restaurant, a wildlife rescue, and a butterfly sanctuary featuring various species of butterflies from the area. The road up Osa Mountain is very scenic as well.
