  • Great for the price.

    "My sister and I enjoyed our stay at El Encanto. Close enough to downtown Jaco, but far enough away. I have stayed at many places in and around Jaco and El Encanto is far a better bang for your buck. Plus Curt is really a cool and mello dude. Had a great time on the waterfall tour he runs. Rooms are comfortable with plenty of hot and water and cold a.c."

  • Fantastic Bungalow in Manuel Antonio!

    "My husband and I booked at 3 night stay at Casa Kaylen, for our Manuel Antonio portion of our Costa Rica trip. Luckily, we were able to add an extra night on to our trip, and arrived a day early! Best decision ever! We loved the bungalow, it suited our needs perfectly. The house is very charming, inside and out...the photos are true to life. The grounds are gorgeous and the bungalow has a great open design, and is nicely decorated, perfect touches as far as furnishings and artwork.... with everything you'd need for a nice vacation in paradise. We really enjoyed the charm of the bungalow, as well as the beautiful tropical grounds (such amazing plants! like from a dr seuss book!) and the view of the ocean. The house was very secure, as others have mentioned...you will not be worried about your valuables and electronics if you lock up accordingly! There are two beaches about a 20-30 minute walk from the house...very hilly, as is everything in MA, but doable for able-bodied people. Only a short walk to restaurants, cafes, a bank and a mini-grocery store....the house is perfectly located. Monkeys occasionally visit in the trees, which is very fun! Some car/truck traffic noise from the nearby road...it was noted in a previous review, but it was just louder than I was expecting! Overall, we had a great stay and a fantastic vacation! The only thing it lacks would be a hammock (or a hot tub) on the deck overlooking the forest and ocean! Just a super place, great memories, felt like we had our own little slice of paradise. Thank you!! Would definitely recommend this place for couples or a very small family of 3, 4 would be tight. I highly recommend taking advantage of the kitchen facilities in the house, and maybe stock up on breakfast/lunch supplies, as the restaurants/cafes in MA are VERY expensive!"

  • More than perfect paradise!

    "After more than 3 months in this country we were looking for a magical place to spend our very last days in Costa Rica. We found that place in Matapalo and were lucky enough to stay at Ron’s place. The cabina is really nice and was very convenient for our family (with 2 small kids), with a fully equipped kitchen, plenty of beach towels and space…and everything was very clean and comfortable. There’s a gorgeous view on the inner land and mountains from the balcony, and animals such as monkeys, iguanas and many birds come in the surrounding garden, which is full of fruit trees. But what made our stay so unique was also Ron’s warm welcome into his paradise; he is a wonderful host, knows everything about the region, and we had a lot of fun when he initiated us to ocean kayaking or took us for a refreshing bath in a secret waterfall. All in one he was very helpful and cool with us, and the kids loved him. Thank you Ron for the perfect stay, we hope one day we will be able to come back to you place."

  • This location was perfect

    "House was perfect, clean, great location if you want the true Costa Rican feel. Daniel was more than happy to help us with excursions off the beaten path. Beach was a great walk, not crowded and safe. Local restaurants were very good. We had six adults who enjoyed morning animals, birds and lizards. Pool was cleaned twice during our stay and housekeeping came once. Toilets were not an issue ( that's how it's done in Costa Rica, it's okay). We really enjoyed the pool. The house could use some up keep with the swing, two chairs outside and the stove which is a little temperamental. Otherwise great place, definitely need a car. Thank you Daniel and Chloe."
