  • This is Paradise

    "My girlfriend and I have been here nearly one month and it is fabulous. The location is perfect for going into town or the beach. Easy, inexpensive, reliable bus transportation or a quick cab ride. The monkeys have visited, the birds are very vocal and we have an iguana who has taken permanent residence on the patio roof..the amenities are perfect. The heated, locked security closet is a real perk and having a washer and dryer makes the visit even more stress free. The Hotel California behind the complex offers amazing sunsets, happy hour specials, and wonderful food. As two women traveling alone we couldn't feel more safe and secure. Lance and Letty are great people as well as awesome musicians...they rock it every Saturday in Quepos...I did a lot of research on choosing a place to stay for an extended period and I know I got the best value..Pura Vida!"

  • Stunning sunset view & marvelous modern home!

    "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!"

  • Affordable, Clean, Beach Front Ground Floor Condo in Excellent Location!

    "My husband and I rented here for five days. This condo is beautiful, well-built, and situated beachfront in Jaco. The condominium complex is very well-kept and clean with gated entry. The association has 24-hour guard service and you will always see guards walking the grounds. The condo is well appointed with kitchen utensils and cookware and a full size side-by-side washer and dryer. There are A/C's in the living/dining kitchen areas and the bedroom as well so the condo is always cool. The pool and jacuzzi are just steps away. It was great to not have to use stairs or elevator either! While we were here, the entire complex was very quiet and we had no trouble sleeping. Also, both the property manager and the owner were extremely helpful and accommodating with excellent tips for eating, dining and playing in Jaco. Great condo and great price, highly recommended!!"

  • Loved the atmosphere!

    "We shared a week at Casa Arenosa with another couple. Lots of space for everyone to find a place to relax, and wonderful spaces to come together and socialize. As mentioned in most of the reviews, the plunge pool is a welcome treat, and miraculously stays cool even with daily temperatures in the mid 30's. We enjoyed the trails through the Bosque del Cabo area, and had an incredible dinner there on one of our nights. Maureen, the chef, created some amazing dishes, including a delicious rare tuna that we all enjoyed. A highlight for us at Arenosa were the Scarlet Macaws, and we were thrilled as we packed the car to leave when 2 pairs did a fly-over salute together to say good-bye! My only negative comment would be that the description on the website could use some up-dating. A useable grill does not exist, so we had to re-plan meals for the meat that we had brought to grill. There is solar power that runs lights and a refrigerator, so although you are living off-the-grid there really are no inconveniences. We used an unplugged second refrigerator to store dry goods in; but found it to be a poor option with some mold being present. A well sealed cupboard or large lidded plastic bin would have worked much better. The cookware was great, knives not bad, plenty of cutting boards, but limited drinking glasses . . . and those that were there were worn and tired. Nothing for wine, but when we mentioned this the caretaker kindly brought some wine glasses the next day. Mike, the caretaker was busy most of the week, and we never did have an opportunity to meet Cecily who was also busy doing massages. Wi-Fi was reliable and fairly strong . . . a convenience for some, but I really was looking forward to finding this location to be too remote allowing me to test whether I could still spend a week disconnected from the world! All things considered . . . a wonderful spot to enjoy nature and the beach."
