“Couldn't have asked for more. Stunning”
Reviewed 14 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We could not have asked for a better location and the small walk to the beach starting through the property gardens were amazing with the lush tropical plants and trees everywhere. The homes are kept up beautifully and were clean as a whistle when we got there. There was everything we needed and then some. The pool was extremely nice and a perfect temperature. We had fun watching the Iguanas as well. The owners have done an amazing job with this place and in all the homes I have stayed in on Flipkey this one far outshines the rest.
Lauri was very helpful with everything and made it very easy for us even providing excellent driving directions from San Jose.
Definitely will be coming back.

Review #13703402 “***Rated #1 in Lonely Planet*** Tropical Jaco Beach Paradise!!”

Excellent property, location, and overall experience
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I don't even know where to begin... We had an AMAZING experience: with the house (stunning and lovely), Jan (property manager who was awesome), Mario (driver, and great ambassador for CR! Lovely man) and the country as a whole.

Mario put us at ease immediately as we drove from the airport to the house. I had a great time chatting with him about CR, and he was full of great ideas of what we should do and see, not to mention bursting with pride about his country's impressive education system, health care, tech industry, and environmental stewardship. (I pestered him with questions about these things.)

The house itself is just lovely. As beautiful as promised, and so well located! The beach is so close, and the town a nice walk away too. Be sure to get up early a few times to see the beach in morning - magical! But not nearly as gorgeous as sunset. We didn't miss a single one, and that remains my favorite part of this trip.

We went zip lining, and hired Mario to take us to Manuel Antonio as our two big excursions. Both were amazing and wonderful! I can't recommend exploring Manuel Antonio enough. What a magical, clean, awe-inspiring place! We didn't know you could swim on the pristine beaches within the park, so go prepared to enjoy the entire experience.

It all felt very safe, and wonderful. My kids and I are very environmentally conscious, and just so appreciative of the true commitment by the Ticos to being good stewards of the land. Over lunch Mario and I talked at length about this. I can't tell you how much his friendly insights added to our experience. But, you do need to be conversant in Spanish. I would advise guests to really brush up on their Spanish, at least some key phrases. It made such a difference for us!

Food, transportation and amenities are more expensive than I had anticipated, especially when compared to other Central American countries, so prepare for that. Bring LOTS of cash! Also be prepared to pay the $36 per person exit tax for the country!! Not a nice surprise at the end of an expensive trip if you're not prepared. Also, allow 3 hours at the airport in San Jose - security is a nightmare there, no other way to put it. And, food in the airport crazy expensive! $87 for four burgers, fries and drinks.. on top of the exit fee, my credit cards hurt a bit more than I had planned. BUT. It was so worth it. Every penny. By far, the best vacation I've ever taken. Much better than using that $ to buy more stuff.

We are so happy to have been able to offer our house and property to you and your family and to know that you'll have these beautiful memories of a wonderful vacation and time shared together. And I agree, the mornings and sunsets are nothing short of magical. I just wish that I would have given you this tip on how to make your trip much more cost effective: eat at local "sodas" which are the family owned cafes and order the delicious local meal of the day called "casados". They are always fresh, home made and offer a wide variety at a very inexpensive cost...usually less than $5 for your meal. There is also a farmers market on Fridays within walking distance to the house where you can purchase a lot of great produce, meats and chicken, cheeses, juices, breads and pastries are available for excellent prices. Now you'll know for next time which will hopefully encourage you to come back.
Thank you for sharing your memorable adventure. Pura Vida!

“Everything we hoped for, oasis refuge and base for adventure”
Reviewed 3 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had an amazing experience with this property. We did not want to stay in a generic condo. This home embodies Pura Vida and we all loved arriving to our refuge in the evening smelling the ylang ylang trees. The home was comfortable for a family of 5. Lauri and Jan made sure we had an amazing time.

Thanks so much Chris for sharing your experience. I love that you mention the Ylang Ylang trees. We planted them for exactly that reason and it's so nice to hear that our guests also enjoy them and the tropical surroundings that make Costa Rica the very special place that it is. We hope you can one day return.
Pura Vida!

“Private oasis jungle”

This was the most spectacular home we've ever stayed at. It will be very hard to top this. It was stones throw from gorgeous Jaco beach, we felt very comfortable to let our teenage kids come and go without us. The home is decorated in tile, gorgeous wood, stone backsplashes, Costa Rican art...the kitchen has every utensil you could need. The home is open, light and airy. The pool a dream. The landscape is your own jungle with mango trees, iguanas, exotic flowers...I could go on. Jan, was awesome, anything we needed she helped us with immediately. It's great communicating with Lauri (the owner), she replied immediately. It was all in all, 10 out of 10!
