  • Vacation of a Lifetime

    "Luxury is the first word that comes to mind when I’m reminiscing about Rancho Deluxe at Playa Camaronal - on so many levels, from exclusivity, to the on-site service by Yorleny & Santos, to the accommodations provided by your generous host Jerry. To echo other reviewers, there’s not a lot that can be said that “hasn’t been said before” (not to mention the fact that EVERY single guest has given 5 stars). Nevertheless, I’ll attempt to give some insight into what I consider an “experience” of the highest order. First of all, I’m a building contractor, so my perspective is colored through that lens. Upon arrival, it’s clearly evident that the design and construction of this “estate” was done by true professionals. (No small feat in this remote locale-Jerry, I’d love to get some details on logistics, procurement, etc.) So I wasn’t surprised to learn that Jerry is a design/build contractor. Thus, you needn’t worry about basic concerns, from power, A/C, water pressure, hot water, wireless etc. Unfortunately for me, I have a very sensitive stomach. Therefore, I never use anything but bottled water while travelling, even to rinse off a toothbrush. With that in mind, the first question to Jerry upon our arrival was the potability of his water. His response, “I have a deep well that my grandchildren drink from,” was music to my ears. My girlfriend is a consultant and had a lot of work to do during our week-long stay. She was able to have conference calls on her cell with consistent wireless connectivity to her PC (with quite a view I might add). Rancho Deluxe at Camaronal is truly a marvel. Jerry’s recommendation for our lone night out at Hotel Punta Islita was spot-on. The food, service, and views were top-notch. I would also suggest taking a short hike down to the beach following a small arroyo through Roberto’s property. We did it several times and really enjoyed it. (Probably for the more adventurous minded!) Get the details from Santos. If you do it, bring mosquito repellant and leave enough daylight for the return trip. We will always be grateful to have had such an amazing trip and plan on returning as often as we can. The fact that Jerry shares his wonderful property (and at such a value) says all you need to know about him. I think everyone can certainly have the time of their lives there. But I would also say that seasoned travelers will undoubtedly appreciate the experience that much more. Jerry, thank you so much! We’re still buzzing six weeks later."

  • Perfect, peaceful,amazing location and affordable.

    "Our first trip to Costa Rica and it was so relaxing and fun. The condo was clean,super spacious,great price and the owner was so helpful.The other condo owners were great and welcoming too......they all just welcomed us into their community.The pool was perfect and the beach is just a 2 minute walk and is quiet and clean. The wi-fi never worked well and it would be great if there was some boogy boards and other stuff to use."

  • Pura Vida

    "We just spent a week at the Beach Nest in Tamarindo and this place is awesome. It is fully equiped with everything you need and provides a comfortable home while on vacation. I highly recommend this over a hotel room. More space, very nicely decorated, great location, overall more comfortable than a hotel room. Two couples would have plenty of room in this condo. The balcony has excellent sunset views - can't be beat quite honestly. The location seems to be in the center of town, everything is within walking distance. Lots of great restuarants nearby - take Joel's recommendations. Although with the fully equiped kitchen you really never have to eat out if you want to prepare your meals. Grocery stores are close by. There is plenty of wildlife at the Diria - lots of iguanas at the pool and howler monkeys right off the balcony, the neighbors even had a monkey on the balcony one afternoon. The swimup pool bar is convenient; we also enjoyed the adult pool. We vacationed during the off season/rainy season, so it was quiet and somewhat private. Very relaxing week. We hated to see it come to an end. Highly recommend Tamarindo and the Beach Nest/Diria - you won't be disappointed."

  • Incredible Views, a Beautiful House and a Perfect Vacation!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your stunning home. From the ceiling in the garage to the glass bricks letting actual light into the closets to the amazing view and pool. We loved it all. Mornings were busy with surfing, zip-lining, and exploring and the afternoons were spent enjoying the rain. Thanks again for a wonderful opportunity and we will send some photos your way next week. Dane and Debbie."
