  • Excellent Vacation!!

    "Our family had a wonderful stay. The condo is close to everything and had everything we needed. We BBQ'd at night by the pool while the kids were swimming. Saw tons of Macaws and iguanas. We cannot wait to go back!"

  • Getaway to a simple, relaxing, quiet life

    "Took a few months to come around and write this but we new from the moment we arrived at El Secret Garden, we were going to have a great time and would have to share it with the rest of the world. I had been in Kuwait for six months prior to coming to Cabuya because I was in the military. I was away from a lot of things, but what I missed most was the love of my life. Instead of traveling home for two weeks, my boyfriend and I decided on a little rendezvous spot in Costa Rica. We knew when we saw this property that our search was over. One word to start this whole thing off is 'Jenny', the property manager. Jenny was our go-to gal for everything. She set up a hotel for our first night's stay right next to the airport....with breakfast! She then made travel arrangements for us the next day via taxi-boat-taxi to our little home for two weeks. She met us at the door with a smile and invited us to her place for dinner. It was such a smooth transition from place to place. She really took care of everything, leaving us to be carefree on vacation. We had our first meal at Jenny's restaurant/house. We fell in love with her family and her food. She really cared about us and the experience we were going to have. My boyfriend and I had all these amazing plans on our To-Do list and Jenny had the answer for everything. While we did spend some days just hanging around the house, we also had plans to go fishing, hiking, snorkeling, and even to visit a volcano a few hours away. Jenny rented equipment out to us, set up travel arrangements and even took even time to teach us little words/phrases to help us get around. We learned about currency, culture, wildlife, and food that made Costa Rica unique, and Jenny and her family made that possible. My boyfriend and I were lucky to be able to reunite in a place like Cabuya. The people are lovely and the area is beautiful. The world grew that much larger in those two weeks, and so did our understanding of each other, but I suppose that is what traveling does for you. To say we had a great time is truly an understatement. We will never forget this little home away from home and our newly adopted family."

  • Fabulous living with amazing views

    "Our first reaction when we walked in was ..... WOW, What an awesome place. The condo was spacious, relaxed and very well appointed. The bathrooms were spacious with instant hot water and good pressure. Washer/Dryer in the condo made us feel right at home. We loved to spend our mornings on the grand balcony watching and listening to the abundant wildlife. Our highlight one morning was watching two Red Iguanas in what we think was a mating ritual high in the tree canopy. To see nature in it's raw form truly was amazing. The pool down in common area was refreshing. The staff, Eilyn and Martha were extremely friendly and accommodating. Gracias! The daily maid service was excellent. Public transportation was literally right in front of condo. Our favorite restaurant was a "100ft journey". You can't go wrong with this condo. It's centrally located to Quepos and Manuel Antonio Park not to mention the beaches. We look forward to our return and exploring the countryside. Jeff&Gary"

  • Great Family Holiday Home

    "The description of the house and surroundings given in this website, really correspond with what you encounter when you arrive. Because it was a repeat visit for us, we already were familiar with the house and surroundings. The reason we chose to come back is that all 4 children wanted to come back, without hesitation, and we felt that we had not yet explored the entire area to the fullest. Also, last year was our most relaxed holiday ever. The house is very comfortable and spacious enough so that you can be together, or take some distance from each other would you desire to do so. The house is very tastefully decorated. The kitchen is well equipped. With a good internet connection and cellular reach everywhere, you can choose to be connected with " the rest of the world" whenever you want to. It is very child friendly, and the children have a lot of room to explore on their own! With a large pool right in front of the back porch, it is easy to keep an eye on them, while enjoying the spectacular view in the background. The thought that there is someone on the premises night and day, to keep up the property including the pool, nature trail and garden is comforting. We try to take long excursions one day and then stay close to home the next day. On our days around the house, we hike the nature trail down to the waterfall, which is on the premises, we gather fruit from the trees in the garden, have a BBQ and just chill. On the days out, we take a horseback riding tour, which leaves out of Londres, only 5 minutes away, we drive to Manuel Antonio (25 min) for some souvenir shopping and a nice bite to eat, we visit the local market in Quepos, (20 min) on Friday evening and Saturday morning, or we take a bit longer drive (40 min) to the endless and quiet beaches of Matapalo or even further. There are many excursions very close by such as ziplining, rafting, surfing, mangroves, nature park, fishing, you name it, it is available. Mr. Jose, the contact person, is extremely helpful and knows all the nice spots in the area. Summarizing, a great luxurious house, well suited for families with small children, in the middle of the rainforest, with a spectacular view and endless possibilities of tours and beaches just around the corner."
