  • Awesome home on Matapalo Beach

    "The home was lovely and very well appointed. The caretaker and cook were fabulous and did everything they could do to make our trip enjoyable. The location was perfect and the grounds and garden were beautiful. The kids loved the triple bunk and the master upstairs was perfect. We will surely go back and stay again!"

  • Amazing place for our family

    "We stayed 4 nights at Casa Pajaro and had an incredible experience with our three young children (7, 4 and 2). The house is gorgeous, spacious enough for a family and beautifully designed - the kitchen and living rooms open up to the outside to give you a truly indoor outdoor feel with wonderful fresh breezes. The pool was awesome and the whole place was very private. The view of the ocean was breathtaking. We had several toucans that visited right off the balcony as well as a family of howler monkeys (along with a baby hanging on it's mother's back). This is the kind of experience you just can't get at a hotel. The dirt road up the mountain was well maintained but I still think a 4 wheel drive is necessary. Also, the owners were wonderful and so incredibly helpful with planning before our trip."

  • Nice villa, as advertised! 4 stars!!

    "My girlfriend and I rent this villa for one week. It was perfect and exactly as you can see on the pictures. The villa is part of a small gated and secure residential area. The house is vast and well maintained. Each big private room has A/C and ceiling fan. The pool is a must with the hot weather of Costa Rica. Kelie (the manager) is super friendly and really helpful. Her suggestions are all "musts" in the area. Don't miss the small and typical local restaurant Los Amendros in Esterillos Oeste, the RainMaker mountain near Parrita and the romantic bar or restaurant in Villa Caletas hotel (amazing sunset view!). On the property you have mangos, you can see hummingbirds every day and Aras flying over the villa going in the mountain at the end of the day. In the area (car is highly recommended and don't rent smaller than a Toyota Rav-4!) you can find everything you need within 10-15 minutes (grocery, local shops, markets in Jaco), beaches, surf lessons, Zip lines, hiking, etc. Beaches: Esterillos has big strong waves and incredibely strong rip current (for advance swimmers and surfers), Playa Hermosa is similar and Playa Jaco has both (strong waves on the right and good waves for beginners on the left of the beach near Costa Del Mar hotel). If you are adventurous, you can find nice hiking trails in the area (ask Kelie) and you can do mountain bike on mountain roads. As described by others, the house as one close neighbour (mostly absent) and the small road is near the pool but it is not bad at all. The BBQ is practical but miss some useful tools (lighter, good brush) and it would be interesting to have candles/candles holder for outside at night and not use electricity! We definitely recommend the villa and maybe even go back with the kids ! Pura Vida! and enjoy your stay in Costa Rica!"

  • I will return!

    "First, no matter what I say after this, "expect me back". The interior of the house was well maintained, clean and adequate space for two people. It was excellent to work with Paula the owner and Claudette the caretaker. They were both very responsive to every email and phone call. I wanted a quiet get away and that's what I got. The kitchen had everything that we needed to prepare meals and though we did forget some minor things, they were easily found within a five minute drive. The ocean was literally a stone throw away, which was the best part of the stay. The sound of the ocean and the ocean breeze was so relaxing and tranquil. The internet worked great, so I could lay in the lounge chair on the large exterior covered porch and enjoy NFL games and the atmosphere of the ocean simultaneously. If I had anything to recommend for improvement would be the bed in the master bedroom. It's a small room, so I know it would be difficult for a larger bed to fit, but the pillows on the master bed did not smell so fresh and my feet hung out over the foot of the bed. We did meet Dan the neighbor a very pleasant chap from Ohio, I will not hold that against him and his mellow dog Donna. It became funny that Donna always knew when to show up for meal time. :) All in all, I loved my stay and definitely looking forward to a return visit."
