About Clark and Paula

Hi, we are a Canadian couple living the dream!! We thought of this as a pipe dream that we couldn’t really do....Turns out we can!! After a holiday touring Costa Rica we fell in love with Manuel Antonio and in particular, Jungle Creek! We love the service, attitude and atmospheres created by Jackie (previous Manager) and want to not only continue, but build on for that truly “Home away from Home Vacation” that we experienced and now live!! We both grew up on the prairies in Saskatchewan, Canada and needless to say, we are not going to miss shoveling the sidewalk and scraping the ice off our windshields!

Together we have 6 children who range in age from 24-36 and also 5 grandchildren. We look forward for their yearly visits!!!

We want to welcome all new and past visitors to our beautiful new home in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica!! Come as guests...leave as friends!!!

Pura Vida!

Clark and Paula purchased this house in 2012

Why Clark and Paula chose Quepos

We fell in love with Jungle Creek the first day we stayed here. It is in an area that is well established with restaurants, shops and beautiful beaches. It has been well maintained over the years and more beautiful than even photos can capture.

What makes this house unique

The location is perfect! We are nestled in a quiet cul de sac where the jungle surrounds you with a tranquil creek running along the back of the property but yet you are 2 minutes away from any of the other amenities such as restaurants, shops, beach, entertainment, transportation and all other services.

We loved Jungle Creek!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four really enjoyed our stay in the 2 bedroom Dos Palmas Villa. Paula was really helpful with arranging an itinerary and booking activities before we arrived. She and Clark were not home during our stay, but Ellie and her husband were staying on the property. Ellie was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We enjoyed horseback riding with Rancho Tipica don Juan, ziplining with Canopy Safari, and a guided tour of the national park with Pablo. The typical Costa Rican lunches with the horseback riding and ziplining tours were very good. We also enjoyed eating dinners out in Manuel Antonio at El Wagon, Aqua Azul, and Baja Roja. We made breakfast in our condo every morning and the kitchen had everything we needed. Our boys loved playing in the little pool at the resort and cooled off in it every afternoon. Thank you for a great stay!

Jungle Creek is Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Spring break at Jungle Creek with my son and his fiancé . We enjoyed everything about it. Paula was extremely helpful in recommending places to eat as well as arranging all our excursions and transportation for us. If we are ever in the area again we will definitely stay at Jungle Creek again.

Jungle Creek Rocks!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed on the Dos Palmos unit with 2 bedrooms. The place was very clean, well decorated and had everything that you needed. Paula's gift basket was a nice surprise. This was our first trip to Costa Rica and Paula was extremely helpful with the planning process. Once we were there she instantly booked us to go on the Sunset Cruise excursion and booked us a tour through the Manual Antonio National Park. Both excursions were great.

The units on the property were separated which made it really quiet even though there were quite a few people staying there. The pool was refreshing and the community area was really nice.

We saw lots of monkeys, geckos, frogs and birds and not a lot of bugs.

We highly recommend this place. Our only regret is that we only stayed there for 3 days for the accommodations were great and the town had a lot to offer.

Pura Vida!!

Great accommodations, great experience.

  • 5 of 5

I'm not giving this place 5 stars because of the great people we met or the chocolate cake at Emilio's cafe, but they didn't hurt. From even before you arrive, Paula and Clark are doing everything to make sure you get the most from your trip by providing information about the area and attractions. We were met promptly upon arrival and given a tour of the property before settling into the spacious studio at El Gekko and rummaging through the welcome package. The large king bed was a welcome sight after our previous stop and while the kitchen isn't huge, it is well laid out and provides lots of space for food prep. It was also very well equipped. We quickly made our way to the store for supplies on the local bus for 310 colones, about 60 cents each and grabbed a taxi back with our stuff for 5 bucks before chilling in the pool. Throughout our visit we received quick emails telling us where we might find some live music that night or a quick knock on the door to say that various wildlife was spotted on the property. We saw everything from iguana to howler monkeys, macaw to toucan, sloth to titi monkeys right in the back yard. The room was impeccably clean upon arrival and even after each cleaning we'd find cute little towel art back on the bed. We also enjoyed spending time with Suzie and her friend Goldie who looked forward to showing the way to the waterfall or just being petted and loved. Goldie would walk to the bus stop with us, which was scary and hilarious when she climbed onto the bus behind me only to be shooed away by the driver. We've kept in touch with Paula and Clark since our departure and are happy to say we count ourselves among the growing list of guests turned friends.

Jungle paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Jungle Creek Villas. We have 2 small kids and they loved the pool, especially all of the fun toys available there...Its also very quiet, so we were able to hang out and watch the cute monkeys come right on the terrace. The property is beautiful and very clean and the entire atomsphere was very relaxing. We found it easy to get to and Paula was super helpful with directions. We liked the nearby hiking trail and ease of getting to the national park. We saw toucans, monkeys and macaws all while eating breaksfast or relaxing in their hammocks. there are several villas but it all feels very private. the kitchen was fully equiped which made food prep a breeze.

Perfect place for 2 or larger groups

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at Jungle Creek and loved every minute of it. The location was just right for us; far enough away from road noise and hustle & bustle yet close enough to be able to walk in the evening to a few restaurants/bars. The owners (Paula & Clark) live on site and offer a perfect balance between guest privacy and helpful advice. They offer an additional service of booking any day trips you may want to do, they use reputable companies and are able to negotiate good rates. This is very unusual for holiday rentals and the service was brilliant.

We stayed in the room called Gekko which is an extremely large studio which was just perfect for us. It was very spacious, comfortable and clean. After about 3 days a cleaner cleaned the room and supplied fresh towels which was also unexpected for a rental. Overall we were extremely happy with our stay at Jungle Creek and the only negative point about our stay was that we had to leave. If we are ever in Costa Rica again, we would definitely stay here again.

The Canadian natives are a huge help when it comes to getting things at a 'local' price, finding the non tourist spots, and enjoying the beautiful beach town to the fullest. We also provide a personal safe in the room.
