"After two trips for two weeks each to this amazing refuge I can sit back and think of all the great memories of this extraordinary place with happiness. Fresh warm ocean air blowing thru the treetops as we looked out over the canopy from the open top floor of the treehouse, watching the iguana's in the jungle floor below eat fresh fruit, nitetimes looking out at the starts thru the floor to ceiling glass walls in our master bedroom, and relaxing in the hammock reading with the sounds of the jungle in the background. The house had everything we needed and is well cared for, and is private and spacious.
The country itself is welcoming, costa rican's are warm friendly people, and their are also the interesting expats who have figured out how to make a life down there running the local great restaurants.
We spent many days on the beaches, surfing, swimming, soaking up the sun, and side trips up to the hotsprings, volcano's, and offshore fishing.
This playa negra area is away from the overbuilt overtouristy (which are about an hour's drive away at Tamarindo)
and is much more to our liking, there is so much to explore, I can't wait to get back again."

"We spent an amazing week at Plumita Pacifica and simply fell in love with Playa Junquillal. Gary is a wonderful host and has the BEST location on the beach. If you are looking for great waves, long walks on a quiet and incredibly beautiful beach, and a place to kick back and relax you have found your paradise! Gary directed us to all the local dining spots which we really enjoyed (and had no problem walking to since we didn't rent a car). He also hooked us up with a local company who shuttled us to and from Liberia Airport and coordinated our rafting and ziplining excursions. It was a perfect week! Thank you Gary!"

"Five stars is not enough. The property is pristine, the breakfasts are outstanding, and you are walking distance from a vibrant town with many English speakers. Jolene and Gary go out of their way to make sure you have all that you need, and ensure that you have a wonderful time. Just imagine that you are being hosted by some of your closest friends whose every desire is to make your visit a remarkable get away - that is who Jolene and Gary are! They will give you details of the best places to eat, play, and enjoy. They are from California and have lived in Villa Andalucia for 15 years - no language barrier for English speakers and no shortage of knowledge about Costa Rica. Their son Brooks is very personable and will take you to great snorkeling spots and teach you surf boarding and spear fishing. A great excursion is the river boat tour of the wildlife at a nature preserve about an hour away - crocodiles, white face monkeys, iguanas, native birds, howler monkeys. It also includes a hands on cultural tour of restored dwellings and historic early period cooking, sugar cane production, that was well done and fun."
