Amazing view and perfect location!!!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? I can't wait to go back! Steve's place is amazing...the views from dawn to dusk are breath taking. You are genuinely within striking distance of anything you want to do. The internet worked well, the pool was amazing and Tom, the caretaker, could not have been more responsive. Anytime we needed anything, Tom was there within minutes if not the hour. When we didn't need him, we didn't see him, the ultimate privacy. If you want to know what to do...try everything...Crocodile Tour, zip lining, deep sea fishing, Tortuga Island, scooters, La Moula (dune buggy), white water rafting, Ti-Ko Restaurant 200 ,meters away, Punta Leona, and more....everything we did rocked!

I can't wait to go back and thanks to Steve and Tom, I know exactly where to stay!

Thanks guys,

Breathtaking View, Comfortable Home and Excellent Area

  • 5 of 5

Six of us (3 couples) stayed in this home for a week and we all loved it. We would stay here again without hesitation on a second thought!

Pros: The home is very spacious and comfortable. There was sitting room for all of us both inside & outside. The pool is beautiful and was sparkling clean upon arrival. Loungers & a table with chairs allow for enjoyment of the huge & beautiful pool area. The entire house is very clean. Bedrooms all have their own bathrooms & very comfortable beds. There were several safes to leave valuables in. The kitchen has all you need to prepare & serve a meal. The view is just breathtaking. Seriously. The grounds are well maintained. Washer/dryer are in good working order. The home is central to many wonderful attractions - we never drove more than 2.5 hours to reach a destination. Tom, the caretaker who lives on site but away from the main house, was extremely helpful & respectful of our privacy. He does a great job. AC units work wonderfully. There are ample places to park at the house. Plenty to do within a 45 minute drive. And last but best - Blue, Tom's dog, who is beautiful, quiet, respectful, well behaved, & honored me with enough trust to give me kisses.

Cons: We were prepared based on reviews so these were not cons to us but may be for someone else. Steep drive up the mountain & very steep up the driveway. Third bedroom is beautiful and comfortable, but downstairs and has no direct access to main house unless pool area doors are left unlocked. This worked well for us as the couple that likes to stay up late & sleep in stayed in that room. There are no extra supplies other than what is out for use - toilet paper, garbage bags, paper towels, napkins, etc. Again, not a problem for us as we purchased what was needed when we went grocery shopping on our way to the house & were not bothered by it.

If you are considering renting this house - go for it! It's wonderful! Notes: Tiko Restaurant is within 5 minutes of the house & a must. Carara National Park is within a few miles & also a must. Spend the $ on a guide to see the wildlife. Ask for Franklin Sanchez at the main entrance & you won't be disappointed. He can spot anything & everything! Ask him about a private crocodile tour. Tell him Sara sent you. Manuel Antonio, go! ATV riding in Jaco, go! Fishing charter, totally worth the $$! El Toledo Coffee Plantation, it's great. For seafood go to Vistamar Restaurant, near the house on your way to Jaco - delicious!

Amazing views

  • 4 of 5

The views were unbeatable. The pool was very nice. Neighbor/ property manager was great. The house could be better stocked (we couldn't find paper towels/ napkins or extra toilet paper). I sent several messages to the property owner and didn't get responses every time. Overall we had an amazing experience and would recommend this house.

Could be better with better maintenance!

  • 4 of 5

What sold us on this condo was the pool with the view. Unfortunately the pool was green the day we got there, so we weren’t able to enjoy the pool and the view as we had to go to the beach every day. We rented this villa for 11 days. 2 days before we we’re scheduled to leave the owner STEVE arrived from the states. He cleaned the pool and fixed the air conditioning that was spitting water all over the place for the last 2 days. So the day we left the pool was crystal clear and the AC functioning . Also there was a huge clump of black hair in the shower the day we arrived. The corner kitchen cabinet was falling off its hinges. Tom is the caretaker of the place but I think it’s time he retires at 71 yrs of age. Overall with a little TLC this place can be amazing. Steve reimbursed us 200$ for the inconvenience which is why I gave it a 4 star.

The most spectacular sunset...view...relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This property has the most stunning views, morning until evening. We travelled to this home with 3 children ages 9, 7, and 5. We felt safe and comfortable in this beautiful home. The pool is fantastic...great corner and pedestal seats. We have a child with gluten and dairy allergies but still found enough food locally to keep him fed and full. A local shop in Turcoles sold large portions of fish at a great price. Tom greeted us upon arrival and is close enough to ask questions if they arise. The bird life was great. Daily overpassing of Scarlet Macaws were our other sons highlight. The toucans arrived for a visit. The property is approximately an hour from the San Jose airport (always traffic depending). The road to get to the home winds but is not an issue for travel. We loved this home and all it had to offer. Highly recommend this property. Thanks for letting us enjoy a piece of paradise for a week!!

Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the home and especially the outstanding view from the mountainside! We spent a lot of time out by the pool at all times of the day, its just breathtaking. The house is beautiful and has just about everything you would need. The next door neighbor Tom who takes care of the house is very friendly and helpful. I actually really liked the location because we were only 20min from Jaco, an easy day trip to Monteverde and about 11/2 hrs away from Manuel Antonio park. Many restaurants in the area and stores. It is not the best road up the mountain to get to the house, we had an SUV and it is recommended. The only downfall was no internet, but it was kind of nice to disconnect, especially our kids who are always on their phone. We had a great family trip. El Patacon Cevichero was an excellent restaurant about 10min away on 34 towards Jaco. Just a tip make sure there is no food ever left out or you will have an ant army in the kitchen!!!
