"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."

"This home sits above one of the best views we saw in Costa Rica. We loved swinging in the hammocks and listening to the waves crash at high tide. We felt very secure as the neighbor is very vigilante. The only negative is he wakes up at 5:30 AM to the radio! This is a confortable home, everything works and the small pool and outdoor shower was wonderful. One of the best things was the huge mango tree next door filled with ripe mangos.
Cindy was the perfect host concierge making all our arrangements and available after hours and weekends via text if we had any issues."

"We were looking for a place to just unwind and relax and this home was perfect. Our biggest desicion was if we wanted to swim in the pool first or the ocean. The beach front setting was just what we needed and listening to the waves at night was awesome. We were able to buy fresh fish right on the beach when the local fisherman came in and cook them right on the grill by the pool. Would definitely return for another stay."

"I had no idea I'd end up reading 4 books on my honeymoon, but with a front porch and a view like this, it ended up being one of our favorite activities. The upper and expansive lower porches provide unparalleled views of the ocean, including the famous Uvita Whale Tail formation and incredible sunsets. You'll want to settle into a rocking chair, pour a beverage, and spend some quality time taking in the beautiful tropical plants and flowers, watching hummingbirds zoom by and toucans in the trees, and admiring the view from your villa on the hill. Casa Moonvine was an awesome place for us to decompress, destress, enjoy and open up!
The entire house is lovely -- lots of wood and tile, clean and comfortable, with TONS of natural light and windows everywhere. Even the view from the master bath shower is to die for! We just had two people, but with an expansive kitchen and connected living room, there is plenty of space for gathering a larger group. The upstairs master suite with a private balcony is romantic and very comfortable.
Martin, the groundskeeper, is incredibly kind and generous. He led us on a walk through the jungle and pointed out all sorts of flora and fauna. He maintains the yard meticulously for guests to enjoy.
The house is a good jumping off point for activities in the area -- ziplining at Osa Canopy Tours and snorkeling at an island about 30km out to sea were among our favorites. Amazing guides at the zipline and incredible fish on the snorkeling trip. Plus, there are lots of lovely beaches within a few km drive of Uvita. Recommend Ventanas and Dominicalito. Our favorite eating spot for a fancy night out is Exotica!
But the house is so nice, coming home from your day's adventure is a treat in itself. You will love Casa Moonvine!"
