  • Kelie and this house are awesome!

    "My boyfriend and I stayed at this house Feb 5-12, 2015. Kelie (property manager) was always responsive to my emails leading up to our arrival. She greeted us the first day and made sure we had everything we needed as well as inside information to make our stay more enjoyable. The house is perfect. It looks exactly like the pictures show you on the site. We felt very safe at the house since it's in a gated community which is monitored by a security guard 24 hrs a day. The house is within walking distance to a few good bars, beaches and places to eat. However, I recommend renting a car so you can really see what the Pacific coast has to offer. We've already decided we want to go back again next year and we'll be contacting Kelie so we can stay at this house."

  • First time in Costa Rica - Best trip ever!

    "We are a family of five with teenagers. As we have never rented a house through VRBO before, we were pleasantly surprised with the fabulous accommodations and the convenience of it all. The house was spacious and well decorated, with all the necessary amenities in good working order. The Infinity pool and outdoor shower were a big hit. Even my wife who never swims in pools took a few dips. Our youngest boy was in constant awe of the surroundings, with many iguana, toucan, monkey and other animal sightings. We even saw an owl land in a neighbouring palm tree. The owner and his staff really take care of this place and we would recommend it to friends and family. On occasion, the road noise is a bit noticeable, but did not take away from our fabulous experience overall. Jaco and Playa Hermosa are outstanding places to visit. Our kids learned to surf and loved the ATV trip through the mountains, which included swimming in a natural waterfall lagoon. WOW!!! Can't wait to come back in the near future!"

  • Clean, safe, beautiful location, but not quite as advertised

    "We were really excited to stay at this Playa Hermosa Bungalow. While the place was clean and the location was beautiful there were some key things that were not as described. First of all, no drinking water was provided. This was a real bummer, as we had just flown overnight and driven from SJO and wanted to relax on the front porch with a nice cup of water. We ended up taking one of the empty 5 gallon jugs to Mas X Menos and getting it filled. I let the owner know and she made no apologies or effort to reimburse us. There is no telescope, nor long distance phone calls or a helpful property manager who will assist you with tours. For some reason, the maid did not fully make the beds, so we were without a blanket for one of them. Aaron did provide us with one of his, but it was not clean, but we made do. We did not feel comfortable asking him for anything after that point-- there was a certain vibe to him that made you feel as if you shouldn't bother him. I did let the owner know about the telescope and phone calls and she basically played ignorant. Had we known that some of the descriptive items were not available, nor accurate, we probably would not have gone with this house, as these were selling points for us. Some of other property managers were much more interactive and friendly. I would suggest renting a bungalow from them if you want to be able to feel comfortable asking questions about what to do in the area and where to go. Besides all of the "surprises" we really did enjoy a peaceful vacation. We spent a lot of the time on the front porch. There is a nice ocean view. On the back porch we spent time looking at all the birds and animal visitors. We did get to see the monkeys. We lounged in the pool and the hammocks and felt quite relaxed. Victor, the fisherman, came by our place and had delicious catches. A walk along the beach to some of the restaurants was a fun time. The Backyard has a nice happy hour going on. The Bluegrass Cafe had delicious cinnamon rolls. And, make sure you take a trip to the waterfalls: Tres Pascinas."
