About Addison Birdine

In 2005, I traveled to Costa Rica with friends just to see the country.

At that time, I was employed with the City of Los Angeles Fire Department. I really had no idea I would come to fall in love with the natural beauty of this Country and its very friendly people.

Following my first visit to this country and the feeling of peace I had while there, I was convinced I wanted to purchase the land my home is now built on. Within three years construction was completed, and I have enjoyed each and every visit.

In 2011, after 31 years in what I consider is one of the most stressful occupations in the world, I retired.

I continue to travel to Costa Rica on a regular basis and have decided that others must experience one of the worlds natural beauties!!!!

Addison Birdine purchased this house in 2006

Why Addison Birdine chose Puntarenas

Because I grew up in a large city, to me the beauty of this property was the location. It is within close proximity to what I consider is a very private beach. Yet, the property is close enough to towns and tourism activities and If I feel the need to enjoy shopping, restaurants and an exciting night life.

Additionally, while most of the homeowners do not live in the complex on a permanent basis (there are some that are here year around), this community is not short of feeling like home.

There are parts of this country that are still unspoiled, and I can only imagine that this is what Hawaii must have felt like prior to becoming a tourist mecca.

What makes this house unique

While my house may be modern in terms of architecture (I really like the Mediterranean look), it is still basically in the 'Rain Forest'.

Occasionally you will see monkeys in the trees that are adjacent to the property, and with the beach being so close, it is the perfect vacation location.

Beautiful space

  • 5 of 5

Though I thought the space would be somewhat larger, the pictures reflected it accurately, and it was a beautiful home! It's far enough from Jaco Beach to bring peace but close enough that it's not a gruesome drive. The pool is wonderful, both at the house and in the community. The property manager was very responsive, and being in a gated community gave an added sense of security. It's a 3-4 hr. drive from attractions in Monteverde, but that wasn't problematic for us. It was the perfect space to come back to. Not to mention, we booked the space within a week of travel, and the owner was quick and accommodating.

lovely house, great gated community

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The house was as depicted in the pictures, nicely decorated, roomy and clean. The location was perfect for us: walking distance to a beautiful isolated beach (not good for swimming though due to rip tides), and pretty central to many of the places we wanted to explore on our vacation. A car is required though and some people may find it too remote. The two closest shopping towns are Jaco and Parrita, about a 20-30 min drive.

The backyard private pool was wonderful to cool off in and the community pools are large and well kept. We had some issues with the pool pump working but our calls were always responded to promptly. The house had everything we needed but was not as well stocked as other vacation rentals we've stayed at. Folding beach chairs and pool/beach toys would have been nice.

The only real fault we found with the house was the water pressure (which I see from other reviews now, is a common problem). Showers were not really easy, but not a huge deal, the washing machine would not fill without constant error lights going off, again not huge deal, but the dishwasher also would not work..... And this was annoying. Yes I'm spoiled, I don't do dishes at home and really resented having to do them on holidays. I have read other people were without water for periods of time, we were only without water for one day and we're forewarned so it was not that inconvenient.

All said, I would recommend this property, it was very lovely. This was our first stay in Costa Rica so I cannot say for certain, but compare to other places we saw here I think it was of pretty high standards for here.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

We have lived here in Costa Rica for 5 years and I have to say that this is by far one of the nicest places we have stayed. Playa Bejuco is already one of our favorite beaches and we usually stay in the Playa Bejuco Hotel. This trip we had a family friend coming with us and we wanted to stay somewhere with a little more room and a kitchen. The house was just perfect. We have 2 boys ages 9 and 6 who stayed in pool in backyard for hours on end. It was great to be able to relax and let them swim when I was just inside. The house is beautifully decorated and we were very comfortable. It was the hottest time of the year during our stay and the air conditioners all worked well and it was nice to turn them on at night for sleeping. I found everything I needed to cook in the kitchen and it was great having a grill as well. We didn't make it over to the community pool until our last day and we were so glad we went. It has two pools and a lovely garden area. We felt safe in the guarded community and thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the incredible sunsets every night.

A beautiful home in a beautiful neighborhood, combined with beautiful weather

  • 5 of 5

After a delayed flight, and a stressful drive in the dark, we (3 couples) arrived at Costa Del Sol. we were greeted at the gate, registered and led to our home. After unloading and selecting bedrooms, all of which are very nice, we took a dip in the private pool to relieve the stress of the day. What a wonderful plus to have our own pool. It seemed that the biggest decision of the day was which pool to use or the ocean. Most days we took advantage of all three. I do not know what more one could want from a vacation home, as Montana De Los Dios has it all. Having used VRBO on several occasions and mostly pleased with the experience, I can safely say that this property met or exceeded all that was stated in the write up of the property. Addison provided an extensive and extremely helpful welcoming packet, which we used in making many of our selections of restaurants, shopping, and more. 5 stars for that alone! I could go on about our experience, however other reviews tell the tale. I did not see inside other homes in the neighborhood, but cannot imagine that any would equal or exceed this property for closeness to the community pool, quality of furnishings, and overall condition. Should one choose to vacation in Playa Bejuco, I cannot imagine a better choice of a place to stay. Another plus was that Addison replied promptly to my initial request for rental information and any subsequent emails, which I have found to be a bit of a problem with VRBO. Would certainly use this home again if we choose to vacation in the area.

Comfortable house close to beautiful beach

  • 4 of 5

This house is comfortable for a family or 2-3 couples. Three large bedrooms each with their own full bathroom. Kitchen that is decently equipped. The dishwasher didn't work at all, which is not really surprising since the water pressure is so poor that it must be incredibly hard on the the dishwasher. The outdoor shower routinely had more pressure than the indoor showers and hot water was non-existent in the master bathroom most of the time - luckily the weather was so perfect that hot water wasn't really necessary with daytime highs of 34 and nighttime "lows" of 25!

The pool was a good size and pretty clean (and a must with the heat). Some things to float around in would be great! The community pool is very close and very large too if you're looking for more lounge chairs in the shade. We felt very safe in the housing complex. The Security guys at the gate were always friendly.

A car is necessary at this location unless you don't plan on going any farther than the beach. The driving is easy and safe as long as you adhere to the posted speed limits and pay attention.

The beach is a 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk down a gravel road and it is the true gem of Bejuco, it is gorgeous and a massive amount of sand. There are shells everywhere and the water is warm, although rip tides are present so caution is needed! This is the nicest beach we've ever found on our travels to many different Caribbean locations.

This is a great house and location for people looking to do something different than an all inclusive and want your own space and to do things on your own time line. The only thing that needs rectified is the terrible water pressure (we actually had no water at all for 2 full days but that was the local water company changing lines not the fault of the owner). This is the second time we've stayed in this housing complex so that shows how much we like the area!

Lots of grocery stores within a 10 minute drive and little restaurants everywhere!

Centrally Located between the City of Jaco and Manual Antonio, Costa Del Sol is your perfect getaway spot. With the beach of Playa Bejuco within a 300 meter walk, and restaurants nearby.

There is also a small Mom & Pop grocery store nearby for essential needs.

For the adventurous soul, Manual Antonio National Park offers nature walks that are second to none. Even closer, is a nature walk known as the 'Rainmaker'.

The town of Jaco is known for its surfing competitions, souvenir shopping, its night life, and ample restaurants to choose from.

Whether you choose to simply relax and enjoy the amenities surrounding this complex (horseback riding, nature walks, beach, restaurants, etc), or experience the beauty of this beautiful country, this is the perfect location.
