Beautiful home in the jungle.
My husband and I stayed in this gorgeous, emaculate home with our adult children. The master suite was luxurious with a huge master bath with a gorgeous shower looking out into the jungle.
The pool was refreshing day and night and the only sounds we heard were from nature. A true relaxing getaway.
The only negatives were the many huge doors with locks that could be a bit tricky to open and close and it was possible to lock yourself out of the two bedrooms that were not adjoining the main home. On the plus side, it did afford the other guests with privacy.
The air conditioning in the main room could have been cooler(, however all the bedrooms were cool and very comfortable.
In terms of wildlife, no monkeys on the property during our stay but saw a resident sloth down the road!
Would love to return someday!
Thanks for your feed back Jane! We'd love to welcome you back anytime. Pura Vida!
GORGEOUS AND BEAUTIFUL HOME!
This property is truly the most beautiful home we have stayed in when using VRBO. The owners have spared no expense on this home, it is so beautifully decorated and you can see that every piece was thought about in great detail. On another note, Elizabeth and Hazel have been outstanding to work with, both are so great about responding quickly and Hazel has been amazing about setting up all of the amazing activities on this trip!
The only thing I will mention, as other reviewers have, is that the layout is not suitable for much younger children because the spare bedrooms are in another part of the house. My kids are 13 and 11, so they were fine.
Thank you for a beautiful and restful stay!
Nice house, but logistics are complicated
Our family of 5 stayed here seven nights in July 2018. The house is beautiful and set in a lush tropical setting just like the pictures show. It is also a great value. The road to and from the house is NO JOKE, though, so be prepared.
It's spacious and offered plenty of room for our family to spread out. The pool was awesome and we spent lots of time there, and got to see many iguanas, geckos, butterflies, hummingbirds and even a few squirrel monkeys from the deck.
Cons: The logistics of getting into the house/moving between the two different parts of the house is not easy, is actually complicated, and got old pretty quickly. There are three keys that open all of the variety of doors and gates that you have to unlock to get into the house, to get out of the house and to secure the main house (where the kitchen, living, master bedroom/bath and half bath are located). The other two bedrooms can only be accessed by exiting the main house and opening one of two sliding glass doors (with yet another key).
Having young children, we were nervous about this house and actually ended up sleeping in the second part of the house with the kids (not a problem because there was a bedroom with a king bed). Now that I've been there, it's not necessarily the "can kids get out of that part of the house on their own at night" part of the situation that is the impediment. They can't. You can lock them in and they can't unlock the doors from the inside without a key. The problem is the communication. How would you know if someone in the other part of the house needed something from you in the middle of the night? The WiFi, which works in the main house and pool deck, didn't extend into the second and third bedrooms.
Another con is that the doors and windows and roof have lots of gaps and exposed to the outdoors, which means lots of bugs and geckos and frogs can and do get in. Finding gecko poop everywhere, including the couch, kitchen countertops, etc., also got old quickly (that's one of the reasons we never cooked). One morning we found a gecko hiding in some underwear!
On the bright side, the concierge for the home was always eager to help us with whatever we needed, and the maid was super friendly. I'm not sure I would stay here again, but that might say more about me and my appreciation of hotels and doors that close all the way.
Thanks for your response. We're pleased to share that we recently constructed a new entrance to the bedrooms, allowing all 3 bedrooms to be connected to the main house. We feel confident that the bedrooms will be perfect for a family visiting us in the future. Pura Vida!
Wonderful home in a beautiful setting
We absolutely loved this home. The home is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The kids had a wonderful time swimming in the pool. The set up allows a very private master bedroom with 2 other bedrooms oriented on the other side of the pool. The setting is wonderful, with jungle all around - we saw troupes of monkeys just off the deck. Ask the caretaker about the walk along the water to the waterfall - if you're brave you can jump to a pool from the top of the waterfall! I would highly recommend this home to others, it exceeded my expectations.
Thank you for your review - Pura Vida!
Very neat, spacious home with privacy
We really enjoyed our stay here. The house was warm and inviting and had plenty of room for our family of 5. A heads up tho, the second and third bedrooms can only be accessed from the outside so something to consider if you have young children. It’s great for people wanting lots of privacy however. We all enjoyed the pool a lot. The house was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed. There would be some critters that would get in at night but that’s to be expected when you’re in the middle of the rain forest. We weren’t fortunate enough to see monkeys but we did enjoy watching a trio of parrots fly over every day. Hazel made the check-in and out process really easy and she was available for anything we needed. Definitely recommend this property!
Appreciate your glowing review- Pura Vida!
