Gary saved us from a place we were staying that wasn't so fantastic. He helped us get a driver to get to his place last minute with no reservations. We had a great stay and Gary spent time with us answering a lot of our questions. We were looking at buying houses along that coast and Gary gave us great advice and we liked the area so much that we bought something right down the street... So now we will be neighbors! The place was clean, the view is awesome, and you walk right out the door onto the beach!

“Paradise on the Beach”
Reviewed 5 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This is a hidden gem! It has amazing views right from the patio doors! Gorgeous beach with very minimal people ever in sight; a perfect place to relax and enjoy the best Costa Rica has to offer! We loved every minute of our stay and even stayed an extra night! Gary was very informative and helpful; if we needed anything we just asked and he delivered. We will be back! Pura Vida!

“As close to Paradise”
Reviewed 9 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I'm so glad I found Gary's listing. After spending three days in Montezuma snorkeling and zip lining and driving those awful roads, we wanted to close out our little vacation with peace, quiet, and solitude. Peace, quiet, and solitude is exactly what we got! Gary greeted us with a friendly smile and pleasant conversation upon our arrival. He led us to our little apartment and thoroughly explained the workings of each fixture as well as suggesting wonderful restaurants to visit, all just a short distance away. He answered all of our questions, ranging from life in Costa Rica to his favorite coffees, and left us to our own devices, but was readily available if needed. The space was neat, clean, and tidy, and every amenity worked properly. The beach is incredible! Just steps away, smooth (but very hot) fine black sand, no rocks, not biting creatures, and a nice easy gradual slope into the warm waters. Magnificent sunsets every night, friendly people everywhere we visited, and $2 beers at the bar just up the beach! I only wish we had planned an additional three days to enjoy it more. We even got to witness the sea turtle conservatory release hatchlings just before sunset on out last day. If you're looking to spend some quiet relaxing time away from it all, I highly recommend a stay at Plumita Pacifica. If our next Costa Rican vacation takes us back to the Nicoya Peninsula we will certainly be staying at Gary's little slice of paradise again!

“Quiet Paradise”
Reviewed 3 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

My wife and I could not have been happier with our choice of accommodations. Gary runs an excellent little slice of heaven right on the beach. His description and videos of the property are exactly what you get. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. If you are looking for tennis courts, a pool, widescreen TVs, and the full spa treatment, this is not the place for you. If however you are looking for la pura vida, this IS the spot. I can definitely see us staying here on a return visit to Costa Rica, I just hope it isn't too far in the future. As for Gary's recommendations on a tour company, trust me, the folks at TPV couldn't have put together a better day of tours. Wonderful way to explore the area. Several nearby restaurants as well, but glad we had a rental car for easy of getting around. Hasta Luego!

“Right on the beach”
Reviewed 23 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Rented for 3 nights with my 16 yr old daughter. wanted a place that was quiet and as close to the beach as possible. This place is exactly as it looks in the pictures. The beach is literally right out the front door, which is hard to find. There were very few people around, so we enjoyed an entire Costa Rican beach basically to ourselves. The owner, Gary, was friendly and easy to rent from. This is not a fancy place, so if that's what you want, don't stay here, but if you are looking to be right o the beach and fairly solitary, then go here! You can rent surf boards and boogie boards a short drive up the road! There's a small store close by and several local restaurants. The only thing that my daughter didn't like was that there were ants in the room at times, but that's what you get when you live right on the beach. The owner gave us some ant spray to use and then it was fine. perfect weather every day, and a tiny piece of costa rican beach paradise.
