Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with a group of 9 and it was perfect. Jose was so helpful in helping us arrange transportation, which I would highly recommended as the house is in a pretty rural spot and an average cab would probably have difficulty finding it. We were picked up at the airport and shuttled to the house with stops at the grocery store and for snacks. Jose also arranged to pick up our friends late at night when their flight was delayed- very accommodating!

The house was beautiful and clean, and there was plenty of room for all of us. We found that the house had everything we needed: towels, a few basic spices, pots and pans, dishes, a dishwasher, etc. The view is wonderful, and we spent all of our time outside.

The only thing that I would want to warn people about is that it is secluded. If you want a relaxing vacation in a beautiful spot and home, this is the place. If you want to engage in a lot of activities and tours and go out to eat, etc., I would recommended a spot closer into Manuel Antonio. Or split up the trip, and do both like our group did! Also, plan to stock up on your groceries on the way in, but there is a small store about a mile from the house where we were able to pick up a few items.

Thank you for the wonderful stay! I would recommend to anyone.

My husband, myself and one other couple arrived in the San Jose airport to a pre arranged ride having been arranged for us in advance from the airport to the house, through the care taker Jose. The start of a very stress free vacation. We arrived at the home which was very spacious, clean, well maintained inside and outside, and beautifully decorated. We were given a tour of the large yard around the home and told of all the wonderful fruits we had access to that were in reach in the yard. The backyard view was breath taking consisting of the lush jungle with the ocean in the distance. Jose then sat down with us to help plan out our itinerary, everything from date, time and rides to and from to events were taken care of. We were shown basic things in the home lights, pool, WiFi ect.. all questions asked and answered. We were introduced to the security guard and all fears of safety were addressed, for anyone who may be a worrier like me. The outside living area covered and so inviting.And was geared to answer the needs of a variety of individuals. For the exercise enthusiast there was an exercise machine or a wonderful trail for hiking. For those who want alittle competition with a cold beverage in hand there were a pool table and a ping pong table to entertain. Two hammocks swayed in the breeze waiting for some one to occupy them. a portion of the yard was set up for putting golf balls for the avid golfers unable to give up the game while on vacation. An open air kitchen, bar area and table and chairs were beautifully set up for late night cooking and entertaining. Every morning we were greeted by the sounds of many beautiful birds who perched in the tree tops and we anxiously spent mornings drinking coffee out doors in the lounge chairs always looking for the arrival of new creatures that wondered thru the property. Always looking for new photo opportunities. Every afternoon we floated in the large well maintained pool until we were water logged but never wanting to get out. If feeling the sand in your toes is more important then the pool the ocean was a short distance away. I highly recommend hiring Jose to spend a day at the beach with you. His cooking is fabulous. The people in the town were extremely friendly there was always someone waving and welcoming you as a visitor to their country. For us few people who hate to return home with dirty clothes there are a washer and dryer to accommodate that need. A trip of a LIFE TIME FOR US

Just right for the family

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 adults and 4 girls aged 1 to 10, and all of us drove up from Panama where we live. We had a great time. This house was ideal for everyone - all on one floor and air conditioned throughout when we needed it, well-maintained and well-equipped. The balcony goes round two sides of the house and is huge, which means you can be outside and do things without getting baked by the sun if that disagrees with you, or soaked by the rain. The pool is magnificent and kept very clean. there is a safety fence that Juan erected for us around it to keep the baby from wandering into danger. The views are magnificent over secondary and primary rain forest to the sea. We had Scarlet Macaws flying around on a couple of days, as well as the regular toucans and other birds. José attended to us very well and arranged for some in the group to take the horse riding tour that includes breakfast and lunch. A point to note is that the house is about 10 or 12 km inland from the coast near a tiny town called Londres (London in Spanish!) that has a small store for buying essentials. The map on the VRBO website is misleading in this respect, though we have pointed that out so hopefully it will be corrected. It takes about 20-30 minutes to reach the beaches, excellent restaurants, supermarkets and other delights at Quepos and Manuel Antonio but that was OK for us. The public beaches are fine, at least during the week off-season, have chairs and umbrellas for rent, and are kept very clean. The jungle-lined beach we really liked - because the waters were calmer and more suitable for young children - was Playa Beisantz at Manuel Antonio (the village, not the National Park). Dominical is within easy reach along the coast and has even more spectacular horse riding to waterfalls, hiking opportunities, surfers' beaches and lots of craft shops and small eating places, as well as a very good reptile zoo that we visited. Out of season nothing is crowded. A regular sedan (saloon) car is perfectly OK to get to any of these activities or to get to the house - important information in Costa Rica!

Great escape for Relaxation.. Excellent stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the house was wonderful and perfect for my family. With a pool table, ping pong table, HUGE pool, work out area, golf range, and horseshoes there was always something to do. I'm sure these amenities are better than you'll get at other homes. We were also fortunate to see monkeys which was really cool. The beach was about 30 minutes away but with the pool at the house it wasn't a problem at all.

I'd also like to mention how wonderful everyone was. Jose met us in town and guided us to the house where he showed us around and explained everything we needed to know about the house. He was extremely helpful with whatever we needed; excursion bookings, housekeeping, restaurant recommendation etc. We can't thank him enough! Also Griselda, the housekeeper, was absolutely wonderful, friendly, efficient, and trustworthy. On-site security was wonderful as well; always very helpful. It was nice to have someone onsite for help/questions.

I hope others get to enjoy this home as much as we did!
