  • Perfect Location, Condo and Owner!

    "First let me say I went into this trip not knowing a lot about Jaco or Costa Rica in general, but I had heard a lot of good things about the area and decided to see what it was about. I enjoy surfing and this was an area I wanted to visit and surf. After searching for many days and reading many reviews I started looking for a hotel to stay at. I must say this was very confusing for me because I have not been to the area and didn't know which ones were nice or bad. I then stumbled on this site and started searching for condos. I then found Butch's condo and the price was very close to some of the hotels. Once again I was going in blind and had no idea other than the photos and reviews people have left about Butch and his condo. I contacted Butch and immediately got a response from him. Now for the fun part Butch went on and on about his condo and how wonderful it is down there. I felt extremely comfortable after speaking with Butch and soon there after booked his condo for a week. The pictures Butch has posted does NOT do it justice!! This condo is extremely spacious with a huge balcony. Although we were only 2 people you could easily had 20 people in this condo for a get together. Everything is updated and worked just like advertised. A wall A/C unit was in every room and blasted out very cold air. One thing that is not pictured is the second bathroom. It is the same as the master which was wonderful. A lot of time was spent on the balcony looking at the ocean or taking at peek at the mountain side. Crocs next door is a dream come true!!! during the week there is maybe 10 people at the HUGE pool with pool service. Yes you will have full access to that and all the restaurants. The private entrance is 90 feet from the condo's elevator. All the staff at the condo were wonderful. You can book every tour you want to do in Jaco right in the office and they will pick you up from there. I highly recommend this unit and with Crocs next door it will be harder and harder to come back and visit cause Butch's condo will be booked. Only negative I can think of would be the new Crocs next door. This place is not cheap. You will spend the extra $$$ to eat or drink in the nicest resort in Jaco. Butch you have a beautiful condo and please feel free to use me as a reference for anything. Once again you are the man and we appreciate you making our vacation go smooth. Chris R."

  • You Will Not Find Anywhere Better Than This!

    ""Wow!" is the first word we exclaimed when we arrived at this gorgeous property. "Perfect" and "Paradise" are two other words that came to mind. You will not find a better location in CR, I'm positive of it. Ken and Kim were fantastic hosts, House Manager Jose took excellent care of our every whim, and the cleaning staff kept the place spotless. The viewing deck is the only place you need to be the whole trip, because you don't want to miss seeing any of the wildlife or hearing the ocean. The splash pool was shaded, cool and beautiful. We only used the ping pong and pool tables once but what a great way to enjoy happy hour! This perfect, private sanctuary has everything you could dream of for a life-changing vacation experience. If you need to supplement your experience, Kim offered a fantastic sunset horseback ride for my daughter that she thoroughly enjoyed, and Ken set up a zipline for our whole family that was top notch - best and safest I've ever done anywhere. And as everyone else has posted, take Jose's Mangrove tour for sure! The beach is semi-private, and it is a hike to get down there, but just take some drinks and snacks and LOTS of sunscreen during low tide and enjoy the day down there. (then just have a nap after you survive the hike back up! it's not really dangerous, just tiring in the heat). Tips: Bring a book - there's nothing better than listening to the jungle and reading in a hammock. If you have a large family, bring games for the evening. You won't want to be watching TV, trust me! Get your coffee at Café Milagro right at the top of the hill - they have the best. We also thoroughly enjoyed a dinner there. Buy bananas/fruit - you'll want snacks for "jungle visitors" Bring several good cameras - trust me, everyone will be grabbing for a camera when the animals come out to play! Have Jose find you some fish - he has friends who can provide you with anything fresher than the grocery store will have. Also the ceviche is a great snack, as him about it. Pura Vida!!!"

  • Short Video of Noche Del Mono

    "Just wanted to share a YouTube video of our experience at Noche Del Mono, it's a an incredible property, and Bill and Frank are both wonderful, truly exceptional experience. As you can see from the other reviews (don't think I've ever seen so many glowing 5 star reviews for any property) this place is just heaven, we are already making plans for our next visit, but this time there are no questions about where we will stay, counting the days until our return! Here is the link to the video, all the places shown are within a short distance from Noche Del Mono----simply the best of both worlds, privacy and quick access to everything. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFtBsQeV6fg"
