Amazing house in the jungle with access to super fun waves, genuine people and relaxed vibe

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 1 week in my friend Christopher's home on top of the hill in Pavones.

Was amazing. Perfect location. Safe, relaxed and super comfortable. WiFi access great and consistent. In the jungle with all the sounds you would want to hear. Howler monkeys, geckos, mackaws, sloths, huge plants and lush foilage. Roads are bumpy but that adds to the overall experience.

For surfing, access to multiple breaks within a 5 to 15 min drive. Walk through the jungle to access excellent left point breaks in 84 degree water. Worth taking the boat across the bay to Matapalo to surf the rights and an opportunity to see humpback whales in their natural environment.

Fantastic trip. Definitely worth it.

What an amazing house with top notch service

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from staying here for almost 2 weeks and had an amazing time. The layout of the house is perfect and the location is second to none in the Pavones area. Gustavo set us up with everything we needed and the help at the house was the best. I will definitely be going back soon. Best spot I have been to in Costa Rica. Thank you guys for everything.

No words

  • 5 of 5

I honestly have no words to explain what a great experience we had at the house. We arrived a day early and Gustavo was extremely accommodating. He was one of the best hosts I have encountered in my many years of traveling. The house is simply beautiful: spacious rooms, great pool, and a breathtaking view. The house is also extremely close to Pavones beach. The staff, if you can call them that because they became more like friends, were amazing and always kind and cheerful. We wanted for nothing. I recommend if you are planning a trip to the area to look no further.

The house is stunning. The architecture is amazing but the sitting and view are priceless.

  • 5 of 5

If you like looking out to the most beautiful view you are ever likely to see this is the place. You are literally on top of the world! You can watch the monkeys, toucans and macaws right in front of you as you are eye level with the canopy. The house is a architectural masterpiece. The flow of the house is amazing. Views from every room. The bonus is that the 4th room is a private casita. More of an ocean person but an infity pool is a nice touch. We have a house on the beach in hermosa and we came here for surf and my wife's birthday, very happy we did.

Food is great, sheri's is delicious and not sure of the name but some of the best Italian down the road from the house.

Gustavo and Santos are the best! Anything we needed they were very attentive and so nice!

Highly recommend and we have pretty high standard even for CR.

Welcome to the Jungle while living like royalty!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What an amazing experience and I can't wait to return and I will be back again soon. The house is at the very top of the hill so from virtually every window facing towards the ocean there are fantastic ocean views. On the back side of the house it's a very dense jungle and a lot of wild life. The howler monkeys and McCaw Parotts and Toucans were nonstop. We never got a great view of the howler monkeys but a troop of 15 or 20 little monkeys made there way all the up to the house. It was truly awesome to see them come so close to us. If you're the prissy type this place may not be a good fit for you. You could nit pick about the floors being concrete and the rain forest is too loud and the power might go out for a few minutes during a storm ect. but if that is the case for you Pavone's is a bad idea for you period.

So the house and the jungle experience was truly amazing all on its own but to make things even better the house keeper Jenny and the care taker of the home Santo's were the best of the best at making you feel welcomed and going way beyond normal to make sure everything was great. My group would be gone for hours either surfing or fishing and come back to the house and everything was cleaned including our clothes in the laundry basket. Plus they would bring us fresh cut coconuts and other fruits. Did I mention it was a truly amazing experience? Gustavo was not in town but he would also check in to see what more could be done to make our stay enjoyable. One last thing worth mentioning was the vibe of the town was unreal. While surfing I met a lot of people that were really friendly and I even took my first paddle board lesson from Sean who is a 57 year old guy from Florida that was tearing it up on his paddle board. Sean's wife Natalie also surfs and she grew up there and knows pretty much everything about Pavone's including buying a home there. BTW- his lessons were only $40 and he took us to basically a private beach and the lessons went several hours and worth every colony. The owners of the surf shop Sea Kings were really cool and we went fishing on a ponga right at Pavone's with Captain Juan. The first day we caught 9 yellow fin tuna and the second trip we fished and surfed at Mata Paulo. On our first morning a guy from Connecticut Nick welcomed us to his restaurant. He told us he moved there about 4 years ago following his sister Sherry's footsteps who owns a bar is next to the beach. Thank You for such an awesome vacation
