Why JORGE VALDIVIA chose Cantón Garabito

This property will give you the sense of being away from all of the 'noise' in todays world. You can have complete privacy or within a short time you can experience night life and shopping and when you are done you can continue or bring the nightlife back to the house and party all night!

The private bar, outside kitchen, private pool and beach are yours to enjoy the whole time with all your friends or just by yourself.

Why share everything with other tourist? Have your own Sanctuary and make your own rules!

What makes this house unique

The house was just newly renovated. Brand new comfortable beds. Each room has its own safe deposit box. Downstairs in the bar section is a brand new built in 48 inch natural gas grill with refrigerator and TV . House has a brand new Generator so when power is goes out the party keeps going. BRAND NEW Pool furniture all around with surround sound speakers. For a small daily fee we offer a Chef that will cook all your meals (food not included arrange with chef) , also horse back riding and all types of tours , fishing , four wheeling volcano, zip lining and much more. Your stay here is unique in the sense that you can have your own privacy with whomever you choose and make your own rules. The 10 ft wall around the house is great for privacy.

Stock the house with your own booze and food or head out to the nightlife and restaurants.

One of the only private homes directly on the ocean with your own Pool and Bar with a gas grill.

You can also hire your own bartender to enjoy things YOUR WAY!

Very remote authentic Costa Rica

  • 4 of 5

First, Jose the driver is your best friend. He will make sure that you see what you want to see, and he’ll shop with you to make sure that you don’t get ripped off. We spent a lot of time with him, and we’re going to miss him. He was great.

The house is nice but it’s way out in the middle of nowhere. Make sure that you load up on food and all necessities as you leave the airport. The location is an hour drive from the airport and you won’t want to go back for food or forgotten items. Buy lots of bug spray also. Once you get to the house, the popular areas are a 50 minute drive away down rough dirt roads. That gets very old. The beach is right out the back gate but be prepared. It’s not a manicured resort style beach. It’s natural so whatever washes ashore stays on the beach. Driftwood, trash all of that. You will have it mostly to yourself though. The beds are nice, slept great. The bathrooms are really small and the showers are not the best. We spent all of our time outside on the patio, and that was really nice. Plenty of room. The house next door is right on top of you, and it was rented by about 20 locals so they were quite loud.

I know it doesn’t sound like it but this was a great trip. We loved it.

Needs work but is clean. I would give it 31/2 stars but it won't let me.

  • 3 of 5

The home is spacious and beds were comfy. Only one shower/ in the master bath, had hot water. One shower downstairs off the pool had no shower head at all. It advertises sleeps 16 but actually sleeps 14 with the sofa bed; unless you sleep 3 in a king size bed and utilize the couch in addition to the sofa bed. The beach is very trashy. I assume because the river runs into the peninsula waters so trash from other areas are in the waters. We did not enjoy it but we enjoyed the pool and a nice fire on the beach at night for smores.:-) The food Alex, the caretaker/cook made was amazing; don't miss out on that. We did have an amazing time

the three days we were there.

Very nice home overall.

  • 4 of 5

The house was great. The house is very isolated from pretty much everything, which we didn't mind. I would never travel to Costa Rica during Holy week again. Everything closes up on Holy Thursday and Good Friday. This was the last two days we were there so no big deal for us.

The picture of the back of the house that is next to this review needs updated as the picture shows a hot tub, but it has been concreted in.

When shopping for food for the week, we didn't buy spices and condiments. Every house we have rented has had the basics. We were able to find a store close to Jaco where we picked up what we needed.

The pool could have been cleaner. It was very cloudy, it needed chemicals. The two small hotels to the left and right had people cleaning the pools everyday and they were crystal clear. I cleaned the leaves out of the pool everyday.

Alex cooked for us three nights. The first two nights were good. The 3rd night was Holy Thursday and Alex was two hours late to cook dinner due to heavy traffic. Dinner also turned out something different than what I had asked for. I would have appreciated a call. We had small children and had to feed them something to hold them until Alex showed up. Over all the Costa Rican experience was a great experience and all of my family had a great time. Next time to Costa Rica though, I would try and stay someplace with fewer dirt roads (If possible).

Very secluded, private, relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

I celebrated the holidays and my 50th birthday for two weeks at this fabulous property with 16 family and friends. It is 25 minutes down a dirt road and far away from civilization. There are very few neighbors, so we had our own private volcanic ash beach for 2 miles in each direction. The property manager / cook got us whatever provisions we needed from town and cooked up fresh seafood every night, and there was a driver available to take us on excursions, etc. (some people went ziplining, shopping, visiting national parks -- I chose not to leave the house). There are 4 bedrooms, a guest house with two beds and a pull-out couch. There are air conditioners in every room, a kitchen in the main house and a large outdoor kitchen / bar. There are two wireless routers, a private pool, a generator (for occasional power outages in the area) towels, linens, safes -- all of the comforts of modern living and all recently renovated. The house is in a Macaw preserve, so there are macaws, iguanas, crabs, pelicans, all running wild. The water is clean and safe to drink, the people in the area are very friendly and it is in a very safe area. I can't wait to return.

The house is about 30 minutes from the nearest town of Orentina. You can also visit the town of Jaco which is about 45 min.
