  • Beautiful Place to Relax in Tambor

    "This was our second 2 week trip to Tambor, Costa Rica. We were 2 couples. The weather of course was absolutely beautiful. We were 2 couples and stayed in the Casita at the back of the property beside the beautiful refreshing pool. The landscaping is breathtaking! Property owner has done a fabulous job! The beach is just a 1 minute walk from the door, we enjoyed morning or late afternoon walks on the beach when the temperature and sun were a little less hot. You can walk for miles. The homeowners were there during our stay and were extremely accommodating and helpful to provide information and assistance when asked regarding contacts for tours, best places to shop for groceries, etc. We had a car which we would recommend but not a definite necessity, as you could book local excursions in Tambor which is a 5 minute walk from the property. There is also a small grocery store located in Tambor, as well as several restaurants which are all within walking distance. If you intend to consume alcohol, we strongly suggest you purchase it at the duty free shop prior to leaving the San Jose airport, as it is a lot cheaper there. Accommodations were very clean and well kept. The casita is not equipped with air conditioning, however, all rooms are equipped with ceiling fans (including the outdoor eating area) and we found this to be sufficient (at least during the month of February). The kitchen was well equipped and had all the necessities. It was a good location to go out on day trips to Montezuma, Mal Pais and Cobano. Lots of Howler monkeys and Macaws can be seen (and heard!) around the property. The property backs onto the main road used to travel from the ferry in Paquera to Malpais, Cobano and Montezuma. The only negative feature was that sometimes vehicular traffic could be a little loud early in the morning and late at night when vehicles were passing through coming or going to catch the ferry. The annual rodeo was on in Cobano during our stay which more than likely added to the volume of traffic during our stay. After a couple of nights when we got totally relaxed and into vacation mode, we seemed to tune this out! If you're looking for a very relaxing and slower paced place to stay away from the busier populated areas such as Montezuma and Malpais, this is the perfect spot! We will definitely be returning!"

  • Amazing place for our family

    "We stayed 4 nights at Casa Pajaro and had an incredible experience with our three young children (7, 4 and 2). The house is gorgeous, spacious enough for a family and beautifully designed - the kitchen and living rooms open up to the outside to give you a truly indoor outdoor feel with wonderful fresh breezes. The pool was awesome and the whole place was very private. The view of the ocean was breathtaking. We had several toucans that visited right off the balcony as well as a family of howler monkeys (along with a baby hanging on it's mother's back). This is the kind of experience you just can't get at a hotel. The dirt road up the mountain was well maintained but I still think a 4 wheel drive is necessary. Also, the owners were wonderful and so incredibly helpful with planning before our trip."

  • Paradise

    "Casa Java is everything all these reviews note and more - it was time for my husband & I to get away from the rat race and to arrive at Casa Java was an instant unwind - it is amazing. Though then we started to have some fun with (trying) to learn to Surf (Mick was fantastic), out Fishing to catch our dinner, horse rising, montezuma water fall, hiking, and of course the international cuisine in the many restuarants of Santa Teresa - incredible. We are on our way back home and miss it already. Thanks so much Carlota for your amazing place and thanks Lauren also for looking after us so well. Fingers crossed for our return."
