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.

Notes:
At Jungle Creek you will always have everything you need with the on-site manager availble night and day to answer all your questions, set up any tours, give suggestions, show you around town, help with last minute details, help in case of an emergency, or just get you more towels. 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.

Comfortable and clean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights with Paula and Clark and had a very comfortable and relaxing stay. The room was very clean and had a nice private patio for us to sit on before and after our busy touring days. The kitchen was great to cook in and keep the Cerveza cold. beds were comfortable and the showers were as hot as you needed. it was nice using the pool and usually there were other guests to visit with and compare your touring stories. We especially enjoyed Paula's hospitality and recommend staying with her to anyone.

Warmest place that we stayed in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in three places during our 11 nights journey in Costa Rica. This is our favorite.

Paula is very responsive and helpful, answering all our questions before and during our stay. The amenity the place provided was more than abundant. The welcoming flowers and basket are very thoughtful and beautiful.

My kids' favorite is the swimming pool, the monkeys that jumping on our roof and Paula's two sweet dogs, Goldie and Suzie! They even go with us for a walk in the jungle creek waterfall, a small adventure just minutes away from the house.

Love this place! We will rent this place again if we come to Manuel Antonio again!

Vacation of a lifetime

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at Jungle Creek was fantastic. We were greeted by Ellie when we arrived and she made sure everything was perfect as we settled in. We rented a car and explored the area on our own, but also booked several tours through Clark and Paula. Every tour we took was amazing and totally worth the money. We enjoyed the safety and proximity of Jungle Creek to the beaches and all attractions. We also enjoyed the serenity of the facility after a long day at the beach. Clark and Paula were very helpful and we would definitely return to Jungle Creek and Costa Rica.

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!!
