About James Rick Stinson
My name is James Rick, and although I've traveled the world many times over, Costa Rica has been a favorite of mine ever since I first came in 2008. I've lived in Jaco Beach and I'm a big fan of surfing, so I was very happy to find a locals 'secret spot' in Manuel Antonio to compliment my love for this house and sanctuary just a couple minutes away. If you have any hesitation at all about staying here, feel free to ask any questions you might have. My goal when you book the Happy Jacana is to make sure you have the best / happiest experience possible from the time you arrive to the time you leave. Feel free to ask questions or share any feedback you might have before your stay, during your stay and especially afterwards!
James Rick Stinson purchased this house in 2008

Whether you just want to give your family or friends an experience of a lifetime or you're looking for an amazing place to stay before you continue on your journey through Costa Rica, you won't want to miss an opportunity to stay at Villa: Happy Jacana and if your budget allows, go for the FULL experience with chef and massage therapy, you'll be glad you did.
What makes this house unique
Costa Rica is often referred to as the gem of central america, and Manuel Antonio, the gem of Costa Rica. The property is uniquely situated at the start of Manuel Antonio , just after Quepos, so you get the best of both worlds. 5 minutes from Quepos airport, a 15 min. drive to Dominical, 45 minutes away from world class waves in Hermosa and the buzz of Jaco Beach. Plus there's many places just a short drive away if you want to actively explore the are awhile you're here.
Guestbook comments from the manager
From the moment I drove up to the house to the moment I left, it was like a dream vacation come true. When I first saw the place I knew I was in for something special because it was nestled near the top of a mountain overlooking the lush tropical forest and I could see the ocean from almost every room in the house. James and his girlfriend were so friendly and accommodating, they really made me feel at home. They knew how to make sure I did not have to think about anything the entire trip.
My room had an amazing view and a great hot tub jacuzzi, as if I needed it after their live in masseuse rubbed me down daily. I was amazed at the variety of foods that the chef cooked for each meal and was so impressed at how fresh all the foods and juices were. Some days I just laid out by the pool and others went on a hike recommended by James and was lucky enough that he even took me to his private secluded surfing spot one day.
The internet worked great and the background music selection topped off the vacation. I really wanted to thank James and would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to get away for a healthy retreat. I can't wait to go back!
