"We were at El Encanto in february for two weeks.We loved our stay there,the condo was clean and the kitchen very well equipped with a lot of pots and pans.An important point for us because we loved cooking .Really enjoy the swimming pool ,small but very nice.The place is at walking distance of everything,large groceries stores,restaurants,shops and bars but far enough to be quiet.We really enjoy Jaco and the proximity of the park Carrara and Manuel Antonio.Taxi from the condo to Jaco is less than $2.00 and there is a very good service by city bus to go to the Herradura beach in 20 minutes for 50 cents Curt and Dinah are very friendly and a good source of information.We appréciate the picking and dropping at the airport. We felt safe and we were like at home in Jaco and at El Encanto.Thanks at both of you.We will tell friends and be back for sure.

"We live locally in San Jose and wanted a weekend escape during the off-season to Malpais. We had a perfect stay in this gorgeous house! What a view indeed -- it's like 180-degree view of the ocean.
It is a steep climb but that's the price for a beautiful view. We had a 4x4 SUV and it was not a problem.
The inside is crisp and modern and I wish my kitchen was this size at home! But the main attraction is the outdoor terrace and infinity pool, where we spent the bulk of our time...lounging, relaxing and soaking up nature: butterflies and greenry.
The rooms are really big, and our friends who joined us and stayed in one of the bungalows loved how cozy it was. And they said there is an ocean view everywhere...from the bed, even from the bathroom!
We will totally recommend this property to friends who are looking for a piece of paradise, and we'll be back!"

"My husband and I stayed for two weeks in this lovely home. The pictures are completely accurate - clean, a/c and hot water work well. Beach is directly across the little road - we rarely saw anyone on the beach, and saw no more than 15 people on weekend days. Very peaceful. Claudia was very responsive to contacts and set us up for two tours (zipline was great; monkey boat tour is great if you just want to see and have fun with monkeys - if you want a narrated tour describing all of the flora and fauna you see in the mangrove, choose one other than Rafa). Some other reviews mentioned security - if you behave as you would in a big city (lock the doors, don't leave belongings unattended), you're fine. We felt totally safe. Must have car."

"This house is absolutely gorgeous - crisp, clean, beautifully decorated, with a private plunge pool secluded in the back. Gorgeous jungle scenery and wonderful view of the ocean and mountains. Monkeys in the morning, birds throughout the day, absolutely wonderful. We spent 4 nights here as part of our honeymoon and wish we could have stayed longer. Can't wait to come back!"
