  • Great week in Costa Rica

    "A few things to understand about the property.... If you are looking for the Ritz Carlton, this is not it. If you want to spend a lot of time indoors lounging around on fancy furniture, this is not for you. If you are looking for a 'home base' while you are out and about in Costa Rica that has everything you might need in addition to very helpful assistance from the property manager, you should consider this. The house is pretty basic. It has plenty of room, a full kitchen, A/C in the bedrooms, etc. It had all we needed.... we were really only in the house to sleep and prepare food occasionally. The grounds are wonderful... nice pool, great seating area with views, awesome elevated porch for great sunsets, and easy access to the beach. The water in the ocean around Tarcoles is mixed with freshwater from the Tarcoles River, so it doesn't have that crystal clear blue color that you always see in pictures. That being said, we swam on the beach in front of the house every day, and in the pool every day. We were a bit shell shocked when we got there about it's location, and about how remote it felt. That was quickly dispelled by exploring. There are easily 10 restaurants within a 10-15 minute walk by beach (we always walked on the beach) or by road. If you are even slightly fit, you will have no issues walking to get food. Walking down the beach in either direction leads to civilization (town or beach restaurants). We ate out almost every night, and did breakfast at the house. During the day we were usually out and about somewhere. Patri lined up a great zipline tour, a Tico tour with Gino (well worth it) and horseback riding on the beach. We also spent a day in Jaco. There is a bus that runs from Tarcoles to Jaco. We speak almost no Spanish, but with a little common sense and some gumption, you can find your way around and figure things out. Jaco was a zoo. More Americans than in America. If I want to see a bunch of Americans, I'll stay in in Virginia. It was worth a day to play in the surf there, but a week in Jaco would have driven me insane. I feel like we got to experience the real Costa Rica on our trip by staying away from the resort areas."

  • Great Vacation

    "I stayed in La Paloma Blanca for four weeks with my husband and my brother and his wife. I can still hear the crushing waves and feel the breeze from the ocean. We watched the sunset from our rocking chairs and the terrace, sometimes we fell asleep, feeling so relaxed. We had the windows and doors opened all the time, even at night and felt 100% safe. We hardly used the air conditioners in the bedrooms, the fans were enough. The airport driver recommended by the owner was great, friendly and dependable. He emailed us about the scheduled drives. The Management was excellent. Our needs were dealt with right away. We missed having a dishwasher, but the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking. We played tennis at the Morgan Cove Hotel which is a short walking distance. After tennis we walked to many restaurant for nice cold beer and lunch. Then we went to Mas X Menos Supermarket for groceries and took cheap taxi back to La Paloma Blanca. We ate fish bought at the Fish Store or at the reastaurant. On Fridays there is a Pot Luck in the evening and we couldn't believe how many Canadians we met. We are from Ontario and they had the coldest February in history. We sure chose a good month to stay in friendly and sunny Jaco Beach. We are hoping to return soon."

  • Beautiful condo and view

    "We stayed for 2 weeks in February at Paloma Blanca unit J2, which is a modern, spacious, well equipped second story condo, and absolutely loved it. It has a large balcony with a spectacular view overlooking beautiful Jaco Beach, where we sat in rocking chairs, ate several meals, and watched incredible sunsets. The entrance to the condo complex is literally 15 feet from the beach. There are also 3 freshwater swimming pools of varying sizes on the property, all close by. The largest pool area includes a barbecue grill and table, in a covered area, for use by guests. Inside, the condo can comfortably accommodate 6 adults, with good sized bedrooms, large showers, and a spacious kitchen/living room area. We walked into town several times, approx. a mile away, or took a cab for about $3. A local farmers market, with lots of fresh fruits and veggies, is held on Fridays, a half mile away. Overall, we were very happy with this condo and hope to return. We want to thank Faith, our condo coordinator who answered so many of our questions by email prior to our commitment, and many thereafter cheerfully and in a timely manner. We thank Dan Jenkins who drove us the hour and a half from the Jan Jose airport, and took us on several excursions for very reasonable prices. Book him, he is a wealth of information and an all-around nice guy. You definitely can't go wrong with this rental or these people."

  • perfection

    "Very nice hosts and wow, what a nice home. We had a great time in jaco and the surrounding areas. Surfing lessons just down the street. Claritas Bar next door was awesome. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Yumm. Great mojitos and cold beer. What else can you ask for. The home was well stocked for our needs for the week and the upstairs balcony was everything we hoped for. Check out Playa hermosa on Saturday night for surfing contest."
