  • Great Home! Great Value! Great Host!

    "I was part of a group of six adults and two children staying at this most awesome home for Christmas 2014. In every group, some can be comfortable, while others not. I loved Gary's home! Everything that is needed can be found here! I loved waking up before sunrise, sitting on the back porch with my husband watching the sun rise over the beach. Pool stayed in almost constant use. We used the built-in barbecue located next to the pool. This area also boasts showers, bathrooms, and volleyball net with ball! ready for a fun family game. In the backyard, the fence door opens right onto the beach. After walking on the beach there is a water hose making it easy to rinse the sand off. This house is in a perfect beach location! Really enjoyed walking for a couple of miles after the tide rolls out in the morning. Beautiful landscape, lots of nice people to meet. Most amenities Gary listed were put to good use, #1- WIFI! The Ping-Pong table held several matches, the foosball table saw some action. Even my husband enjoyed the rope swing… we have pictorial evidence. We enjoyed puzzles at the table in the evenings. On Christmas, we played our annual game of Risk which lasted to the next day! We left the game for many others to enjoy. If you like open air, then this home offers it! Large windows with large doors that allow good circulation throughout the main part of the house - gives a "beachy" feel and not closed up. Plenty of ceiling fans throughout the house! Full kitchen with plenty of counter-space. A large refrigerator and pantry. Easy to cook breakfast and dinners when desired. Bedrooms were spacious. If a box fan is not in your room, ask Gary and for an extension cord if need be! It is true the shower water is not American standard hot. Gary was able to adjust the water from being tepid to warm. Gary is the best host ever! Shortly after arriving my husband became ill from a flu he picked up at work and unable to travel to the airport the next day to pick up the rest of our group. At a moment's notice, Gary was able to make the second trip but also stop by the pharmacy to get flu medicine. His wife immediately provided two icepacks. Everybody's opinion matters, but only you can decide what is important to you! If you are looking for Pura Vida in Costa Rica with the greatest host, the greatest place, at the greatest price… choose property #17355!"

  • Pura Vida at its finest

    "My family and I stayed at this property for three weeks. To say that this property met and exceeded the requirements for our Costa Rican dream vacation is an understatement. The house had three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, dining room, and a kitchen. The bedrooms were supplied with everything one needs for comfort and convenience. The location was excellent as the house is situated next to a quaint fishing village, which provided a quiet and serene setting. You can hear the waves crashing from every room in the house while macaws are squawking and eating from the almond trees along the back fence line. The pool added to the beautiful setting and provided for a much-needed cool down after a day’s worth of adventure. What is most important about this property is that the service we received by the staff, but in particular, Patri the Property Manager was superior in every manner. Upon arrival, one member in our party became ill. Patri rushed over to make sure they were okay and then took her to the local doctor to ensure she received care. Patri arranged every detail of our trip so that we did not have to plan anything except for telling her the activity we wished to do. I can say that this was a true vacation in the sense that the house provided relaxation due to its location and the service provided by Patri and her staff. The service was personal and first rate. If you want, a Costa Rican vacation that provides a glimpse of true “Tico” lifestyle while including the adventure or relaxation elements desired then this house will meet or exceed your expectations."

  • Great getaway

    "Having lived in Jaco in 2012, my husband and I are fairly aware of current accommodation options in the area. We chose Corteza del Sol for our last trip back because it is a great location with great amenities at an unbeatable price. The condo was simple, but beautiful! It had everything we needed and more. We also love the location just outside of downtown - it's so peaceful and perfect for anybody looking for some rest and relaxation. The pool is beautiful and not crowded at all. In fact, we usually had it to ourselves. Though I never feel unsafe in Costa Rica, Corteza del Sol has a great security team that would make even the most nervous travelers feel comfortable. My husband and I will definitely stay here again in the future!"

  • Magical Place!

    "This was our families first visit to Costa Rica and it did not disappoint! Stephanie and John were most gracious hosts, beginning well before we arrived, arranging transportation and answering numerous questions. The condo was lovely, especially the spectacular views from the penthouse...lush green mountains with hovering clouds on one side, beautiful beach with spectacular sunsets on the other. And it was well equipped, making it perfect for our family. We enjoyed many outings including Rainmaker Park and Manual Antonio but also enjoyed the beautiful pool and beach and the ability to have some down time. Stephanie and John left shopping and dining recommendations, which was so helpful to navigate the many choices. We spent some time in town and also took in some local surfing in nearby Playa Hermosa. Wonderful, vacation with many great memories, and the thoughtfulness and care of Stephanie and John certainly added to that!"
