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!!!

Our family of four stayed here for three nights. I wished we could've stayed longer, but we had to move on. The house had everything we needed and certainly was VERY spacey! But the most impressive part was the back veranda! The infinity pool and ocean view was spectacular! To wake up and have your morning coffee and just relax was so calming. And the sunsets were beautiful! It was like 3 days in heaven!

Lovely Home, Away but close enough to things needed

  • 4 of 5

This home is beautiful, loved it. Spacious and open, with gorgous views that is like a painting at times. Each day is a different view...... the calm in the morning while you sipped that delicious Costa Rican coffee, in a really the secluded but safe location with beautiful wildlife all around you. We saw monkeys in the trees, Macaws and Toucans almost daily. The "American" market and restuarants up the street make it convenient , Cascada Del Amor is close enough to walk but far enough that you dont' see the traffic or hear any noise, Food is great and so is Jack is the owner and the view spectacular. P.S that where you go to use the wifi, and eat delicious food. All is super convenient Jaco beach AND Manual Antonio is not bad of a drive which we went almost daily. about a little over and hour, Monkey Mangroves is on the way there , ask for Chino Tours, Andre was a great guide who made sure my kids saw alot of monkeys, and MonteVerde a 3 hour drive which was fine but start early. As well at Tortuga Island. Tom lives right above the home who takes care of the home for the Owner, he is close but doesn't invade any of your privacy because of the way the layout is. He is a very nice man , great to chat with and will help you with whatever you need. The lightning show in evenings is fun to watch, and the birds will wake you in the mornings, just be prepared for the bugs. The home sits in middle of trees and on the hillside there, so keep screens closed, at night keep the lights outside off , if you keep it on all night, by morning there will be like a Moth exhibit outside. There is Bob the frog who will be out there every night by the screen doors eating bugs and getting away from evening rain, and ants that are HUGE what will come carry any other bug that you killed, they come is during or after the rain, so just spray some bug spray around the casing of the doors, and my husband put our airport throw on the floor and that helped alot. There's a couple dart frogs that will appear by the pool / drains to eat the bugs in there, stay way from them and they wont bother you. We did find a scorpion in my daughters drawers, so check things out prior just in case, other than that.... def. no compaints. I did wish there was a tv in living room, so that at night the family could sit together on the couch, but they are only in the bedrooms. We would def. stay there again on our next trip. We left 5 days early due to an emergency with my husband
