"A great place in a great little (non-touristy) town! The pictures don't do this place justice. Corners definitely WERE NOT cut when this beautiful place was built a short time ago. Great communication ahead of time with Alan and Javier was of great help while we were there (minor issues came up but they were quickly dealt with). The beach is a short walk (be aware that older people might have some challenges with the short hill to the property) and great for enjoying the surf and tide pools. (We had 19 that enjoyed the property from ages 5 - 75). I also HIGHLY recommend "Anna" for cooking services. Her and those that periodically helped her did a WONDERFUL job of cooking local meals. Based on our experience, I doubt anyone that wants a taste of the local culture will be disappointed. If you choose to not go with the "meal option", Los Almendros has amazing dinners and Surf Mi is a nice open air bar with very good food (open for at least lunch and dinner) too. Great day trips (Manuel Antonio, waterfall swimming and jumping, zip lining, fishing, etc.) are available for those that are willing to leave the house and Esterillos beach. (Some would say "Why"?!?!) All and all, an amazing experience for each of us that stayed."

Quite place with a marvellous view on the ocean and the birds !
"We stayed at the apartment for 1 week and we really found what we were looking for : peaceful place with the pool (the boys loved it so much), birds cross-line and a small walk to the beach.
Our hosts have been very welcoming with nice conversation with Marga (from Munich).
Thank you for this great experience out of the tourist-town.
Pura Vida !"

"This rental is really steps from the beach! You can hear the thunder of the Great Pacific night and day. The rooftop veranda is lovely to hangout on anytime. The veranda has great views of the ocean and the neighboring wild life. We saw lots of macaws! The interior has super a/c and has all the amenities: microwave, coffee maker, utensils of every kind and has pots and pans. The bed is comfortable. The plumbing is great! The furnishings are rather dull. It's sort of like going back to the 70's but it is ok. One issue, which is no fault of Rick and Ginny, is that there is major construction going on next door. This can be very loud at times. They start at 7am and end at 7pm. If you are out and about, this will be a non-issue. The caretaker, Tracy is always around. She's a real sweetheart. She keeps the pool and grounds in pristine condition. Everything is clean and neat. You will love the peace and quiet of this lovely property at night. You can see the stars! Five star rating goes to this property!"

Relaxing and Private CASA ALOHA is a great vacation value
"This home turned out to be perfect for two couples. Both couples wanted a king suite and that is exactly what this home has. They are on opposite sides of the huge house providing plenty of privacy. The bedrooms open onto the pool deck where you are treated to a panorama of the mountains and rainforest. We enjoyed the birds and iguanas, lots of very lovely plants in the garden, but most of all, the monkeys. They must live nearby because they came everyday and entertained us for hours. It was easy to go to larger towns where they had shopping and tours, but every afternoon we came back to incredible sunsets and total quiet. Nearby were small restaurants where we had many wonderful fresh seafood meals. It was very authentic and natural, and we enjoyed ourselves tremendously."
