  • 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!"
