"After traveling around the world, I can honestly say this is where I fell in love. In love with wildlife, flora and property. Equipment, furniture, gardens, everything is there to make you feel in paradise. The guardians of the property were also very helpful. Before we arrived, everything was in place for a memorable stay. Much more beautiful than the pictures;) We will definitely return."

"We had a wonderful time at Casa Tucana. We were a group of 5 adults and two toddlers. Arriving past midnight, we were greeted by a cheery Chloe who gave us a quick welcome and house set-up. The house is clean, comfortable and breezy, bright, beautifully furnished with spacious, private rooms and all the ammneties you need.
Beautiful salt water pool which the kids enjoyed for endless hours. There were 3 separate socializing areas – the outdoor lounge, which is shaded and private with a well -kept garden of palms and other local fauna. A small deck: perfect for evening drinks and an outdoor area on the roof with a nice view over the surrounding jungle/fields.
We saw monkeys and geckos and frogs and the odd cow in a nearby paddock. Were pleasantly surprised by how bug free the property was. The proximity to the beach was just right– a 15 minute walk or 2 min drive. In the rustic village of Esterillos Oeste there was a grocery store with everything. The village is a true local spot, not at all touristy. Though you definitely need a car to fully enjoy the area between Jaco and Manuel Antonio.
The house was the perfect respite for naps and quiet relaxing during the midday heat and we organized our activities for the mornings and late afternoons. We found Bejuco a magic spot – nice wide beach and lots of local families.
Chloe and Dan were very helpful – arranging car rental through Zuma (who conveniently included a driver to and from the airport) organized local catering for a birthday meal for one in our party, setting us up with the best guide for our tour of Manuel Antonio and zip-lining at the excellent nearby Ocean Ranch.
I might add that they accommodated us within a week of having their 3rd child – and made themselves available for whatever we needed, which was an impressive feat in itself.
Overall, we adored Costa Rica and were very comfortable at Casa Tucana where thoughts of our stressful loves back home melted away. Would highly recommend it for a relaxed family retreat. Thank You so much Chloe and Dan!"

"I can't say enough good things about the house we rented from HRG in Costa Rica at Los Suenos. We also had the best experience with their staff from the driver to the hosts of the house when we arrived providing golf carts etc. What a great staff they have and beautiful properties to offer in addition to being able to set up anything you need to make your experience the best in Costa Rica like fishing or adventure activities."

"We had an amazing time staying at Bahia Encantada in Jaco. John and Stephanie were amazing managers. They were there to greet us, check us in and out, reserved a driver for us, and were there for anything else we asked of them. And the maid even caught that our AC went out one day while we were gone and it was nearly fixed by the time we got back! The condo itself was fantastic - amazing views off the balcony, fabulous location, and fully stocked with towels, snacks, and everything we needed. Jaco was also amazing - so many great things to do, and such friendly people! It was a fantastic trip, and I can't wait to go there again."
