Wonderful Retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

I had concerns about staying outside of town by myself. I was only seven kilometers from town but might as well have been a million miles away. The backyard is a beautiful jungle so you go to sleep and wake up with the jungle sounds of birds and crickets. This vacation taught me a very important lesson on how to do absolutely nothing and enjoy it!! I got up early, went to be early, read, napped, walked the beach (just across the road), did yin yoga in my room. I wouldn't let myself turn on the TV until dark and would then watch a movie or two. It was exactly what I needed. Mireya (the owner) is lovely and speaks fluent French, Spanish and English. She and Dennis (the manager) would make sure and let me know when they were going to town so I could go in for shopping or dinner. It's only a $10 taxi ride back, so it was perfect as I could come back when I wanted. I loved my time at Pacific Jungle Apartments and will go back to see the new pool that Mireya's is putting in this fall. There is also a couple of very good restaurants across the road, make sure you try them. Villa Hermosa and Bowie's Point are both excellent!!

Just what I was hoping for.....and more!

  • 5 of 5

I was seeking a place to spent several weeks of quiet, meditative time. A place to read, write, think and walk the beach. I could not have found a better place! Everything I needed was within reach. And the owner is lovely! I hope to be back again before too long!

best location and rental!

  • 5 of 5

we loved our first studio so much, we upgraded to this bigger rental because family and friends were visiting us during our 3 month stay! Couldn't ask for a better place. Perfect location for surf and nature hikes. Beach, stores and restaurants just footsteps away. the jungle and mountains are our backyard. Wildlife everyday. Best landlord and property manager we have had. Anything needed, they were there to help! I encourage this place for future vacations! Pura vida!

An American review LOL :)

My wife and I spent a week here surfing and hiking. This has been one of our best trips. We have been to many surf destinations and this is a great spot. Playa Hermosa is right across the street. Jaco beach is a short ride down the road and Boca Barranca (second longest left in the world) is less than an hour away. Hiking is spectacular. Lush and full of wildlife. We even had breakfast with a monkey at the apartment.

The rental is wonderfully situated across the street from a couple of great restaurants. Bowie's Point is our fav. (Go say hi to Roger and his wife) super nice owners.

We loved the rental. Very clean with all the amenities. The a/c was a blessing. Plenty of room to spread out. Dennis was very helpful with all of our needs. Great guy! We will be back for the surf and the "Pura Vida."

We can't thank you enough Mireya. We loved our stay!

Great place , great owner

  • 5 of 5

Great place close to the ocean (across the street). The appartment is confortable and enough equiped to cook some good Costa Rican meals. You can spend time in the garden to watch iguanas, parrots, tucans, monkeys and coatis. The owner (Mireille) is a such wonderful person who does everything she can to make your stay more than pleasant. It's not too far from the city of Jaco where you can go to do your grocery or enjoy time in town. I was there for 6 weeks and I hope I will go back.
