Great Girls Trip!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous house!!! Went for a short getaway with just the girls for some R&R and had a wonderful time. The house pictures on this site, do not do it justice. The pool is great, nice and quiet, peaceful, and always felt safe. The beach was so nice, just down the hill (easier with car, than walking) but within minutes and the restaurant/bar right on the beach is a plus with excellent service! We went into Jaco a couple times, but we loved the location of the house, as its not too far from the main action, but yet far enough away from all the hustle bustle, very private! The name of the house is perfect as this is one of the highest houses on the hill, with views to die for! Thanks to the property manager who did a superb job answering all our questions and setting up tours, etc! What a great vacation we had!!!

Beautiful home with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the hilltop house June 20-25...the house was gorgeous! Decorated beautifully and lots of space. Our favorite part was the rooftop deck- overlooking the mountains and jungle on one side and the ocean on the other. We would go up there every morning to drink our coffee and watch the parrots fly by.

The pool at the house was great after a long day of adventuring and the ocean was just a short walk down the hill. The local people around town were very friendly and accommodating! If we wanted a little more shops and restaurants- it was only a 15-20 minute drive to Jaco. We can't wait to go back to Costa Rica! So many things to do! Our short 5 night stay wasn't long enough to see and do it all!

One of a Kind Hose and Wonderful Location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is one of a kind, the views on the top deck are stunning. The house was very clean, pool is great, and the property manager set up transportation to and from airport. She had arranged breakfast for our party of 10 at the house some of the days which was great to not have to leave the house. The locals are so friendly in this area, the beach is wonderful, tidal pool was fun for the kids, there even was a waterfall on the side of the mountain on the beach. There are a few restaurants in town down the hill that the food and service are wonderful, especially La Sirenas, where you really get a Costa Rican feel. Was perfect location for all our tours we did in Jaco and Manual Antonio! Our family was very pleased!

Simply Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful for our family! The property manager was so helpful coordinating every tour and transportation to and from the airport as she was readily available throughout our stay with whatever needs we had. The house was spotless clean, and such a unique house. Nice size for our large family and plenty of space and nice size pool and sunbathing area. The observation deck on the third level is breathtaking! The views are priceless and every morning Macaws flying over! There is even a friendly Iguana that lives on site! The kitchen is well stocked for our meals we had at home. This location was perfect, just a quick minutes drive to the beach, we enjoyed the Tide pool, exploring and relaxing! One of the best vacations we ever had! We will be back for sure, thank you for amazing hospitality and an amazing house!

Nice place

  • 3 of 5

This is a nice place and I would have given it a higher rating but there at least a couple of things that are not as advertised. There is no "blue tooth" stereo system and there is no coffee to get you started.

Also, when I spoke with the manager months before, I had asked if all windows and doors locked and the answer was "yes". When we arrived we noticed that this was not the case. The issue was addressed rapidly. During our 6 weeks stay, quite a few other issues came up which most were addressed within a few days.

If you are travelling with children and/or are not fit, you should seriously consider renting a car to really enjoy this location. We managed without one by using local drivers to get around when we had to go for groceries in Jaco etc... Let me tell you that walking down to the ocean is not bad but coming back up in 35c temperature is a hike! It did get a bit easier after 6 weeks.

So yes, we had a good time and the house offers nice views and a comfort level above average. A little bit more tender loving care would make it a topnotch location.

Owner's Response: Hello. Thank you for your staying in Hilltop House. As any kind of properties small inconvenients can happen sometimes. I did respond to everything in a very short period of time and when something needed to be repair the worker had to do it in his schecule. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I am sure your family also were very confortable having the extra items you requested with prior time as a high chair, kids toys, etc. I was happy to brings this thigs for you and your family to make you feel as home in a different country. Sorry about the blue tooth stereo. It was a small bombox for music in the living room. They are also some extra items that were not in the listing as the bikes, beach chairs to be use that I am sure it was a nice surprice for you. Costa Rica has tropical weather and from January - March is our dry ( summer) season. It can be hot in that time of the year. People love to come here to be away from their winters. I mentioned to you with time you could be more confortable renting a car even if you can walk to the beach and town. I am glad you had a good trip from and to the airport with one of my recommended private transportation service that I assist to coordinate. It is important for me to be sure clients are safe and confortable. It was so nice to have you in the property. I like to have a personal relationship with clients and be sure clients are happy. I really care about my guests and the property very much! It was a pleasure to coordinate the private dinner to celebrate the birthday with your family and friends. I hope you brough with you very nice memories of your stay in Esterillos and Hilltop House. We will be happy to have you back to our loving house. :)
