"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!"

"I rented here for 9 days and loved it!! The condo was cozy and comfortable. You have gated security 24/7. Although it has AC, the ceiling fans kept the condo cool day and night. Access to the pool was very convenient. Everything in Jaco is truly within walking distance."

"My husband and I escaped the East Coast winter at the Monte Carlo in Jaco Beach. What a find! The 2-bedroom condo was beautifully appointed and a comfortable home away from home for 5 weeks. The beach, shopping and restaurants are short stroll away, but what made our stay special was the wonderful staff! We hope to return next year to this little gem."

"Our group of 16 friends stayed at Blue Macaw a few weeks ago for a bachelor party trip and loved everything about this place. The layout and grounds were perfect, the beachfront access was great, the pool is huge, and the service from the Jaco VIP staff went far beyond our expectations. We never had any problems partying hard and loud or just relaxing and recovering. Privacy was a big concern for us when we booked this and we had plenty of it the whole time we were there. It is very close to the center of Jaco and all the action and party scene. A little too far too walk to town, but a real fast and real cheap taxi ride in either direction. You couldn't ask for a better location, right on the beach, private and secure, and close to everything fun."
