  • Fantastic

    "I am writing this review while enjoying a delicious cup of Costa Rican coffee listening to the birds and waves - and sitting on the couch of this fantastic rental! Sherri-Lee (the owner) you were just wonderful to deal with, thank you for making booking our first private condo such an easy and stress free experience. The location is GREAT! We are right on the beach where we have surfed and relaxed every day. Cab rides into town are no more than $3 American and we have also walked many times (15 minutes or so). Its peaceful and quiet, the staff at Paloma Blanca and Daystar has been just wonderful and it feels very safe. The condo itself has a VERY comfortable king sized bed and couch built for lounging. The kitchen has all the utensils we needed including some Tupperware containers which came in very handy for our day trips. I also didn't realise before getting here - but there is a full laundry room which has come in very handy for washing beach towels and some clothes we have gotten dirty on all of our adventure trips. We are here with 4 other couples who have rented other units in the complex also and the walk out to the pool made things really easy! It was just my husband and I staying, but the unit would have comfortably fit two couples. The second bedroom has its own flat screen and double bed, plus a full second washroom in addition to the ensuite. For the price, you cant beat it! If you're in to surfing, Tortuga Surf School sets up right in front of the complex and offers amazing surf lessons and board rentals - and also let us use their beach loungers and umbrellas. Tours and activities we took from here included - Jose's crocodile tours (we actually got to touch a giant one), Tortuga island (absolutely beautiful and super fun, but don't get too excited about the snorkeling), zip lining, and rappelling down 300 feet of waterfalls in the rain forest. All were able to pick us up from our front gates. Also - the food here has been FANTASTIC! We have tried to stick to local Costa Rican places and avoid the americanized ones and we haven't had a meal yet that wasn't great, and well priced. If I'm ever lucky enough to come back to this beautiful place I would rent this unit again in a heartbeat, and strongly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to explore Jaco and Costa Rica! Thanks again!"

  • On top of the world!

    "We were there for a bachelor party and could NOT have picked a better place for our fun times! The driveway is pretty insane as it climbs straight up the mountain, but once you arrive at the home and enjoy the spectacular panoramic views, it's all worth it! We even saw monkeys climbing around in the trees around the house! Iguanas were everywhere on the pool deck every morning. We had breakfast made for us everyday where the staff went above and beyond! There were so accommodating to our every need, from taxis to food to helping us with activities to do. I suggest getting many meals there if you can... We would love to come back one day! Owner (located in the states) was very responsive via email and telephone, which was important to us as well."

  • Total Relaxation!

    "Our week spent at Casa Amarilla was wonderful. From the great caretakers to the fully furnished home. Our party included two couples and this home had plenty of room for all of us! Prior to our arrival we received detailed driving instructions that were most accurate. We did encounter a road closure on the new highway that delayed our initial arrival so be sure to check ahead on your arrival date for any possible road closures. This was our first visit to Costa Rica and a few things stood out. First and foremost is the friendliness of all the people we met. Everyone we met were more than happy to help this group of gringo's find their way around the area. The next welcome surprise was the sheer beauty of the area, from the frequent visits from the Macaws to the gorgeous sunsets each evening. One of the greatest days we had was with Tico Style Tours where we met Gino and his lovely wife Maria. In one day we visited Gino's private beach, went fishing, snorkeling and enjoyed fresh fruit and lobster on the beach. We ended the day with a beautiful oceanview sunset and a great dinner prepared by Maria and delivered to Casa Amarilla. Last but not least we would like to thank Patri for all the great information and ideas she provided prior to and during our visit that helped make our vacation a most comfortable and relaxing time. We hope to return to Costa Rica in the near future for a much longer visit Pura Vida Mike & Karla"

  • two life time freinds, Mike and Bob

    "1st Costa Rica Trip for Bob and I and it met all of our expectations the owner Eileen was such a big help with prep that we actually went on are own without the extra costs of tour guide add on costs. The reviews were accurate and the accomadations were excellent. We had such a great time that we changed our travel plans and stayed in the rain forest (rental car) and drove through the country. The Sky Trek zip line at Arenal Volcano is a must, we also entered the public access and enjoyed the hot springs at no cost. The food was out of this world everywhere in the country, but agree with Eillen on her Green Room in Jaco, get the special, salid with Tuna steak on top. Very special to all of the Day Star Employee's especially Eric at the Gate, Anthony our boat captain and first class crew, we made an under water movie of a sailfish that Bob caught one of many fish, and Eileen for all the information that really was the key to our whole experience. we also got special tickets for a return trip that is in the future. Big Thanks Mike"
