  • Perfect location to explore the South Coast

    "We must echo the positive reviews of those who have come before. "Heliconia" casita is easily accessed from the coastal highway (4x4 vehicle best) and perfectly located to take advantage of the the fine restaurants of Ojochal - the culinary capital of Costa Rica. It's a perfect mid-way point to day trip south to Sierpe and the Osa and north to Manuel Antonio and points in between. Our hosts, Laurice and Dennis, took us on an orientation tour of the immediate area on arrival which opened up all sorts of possibilities for exploration during our week's stay. The house is comfortable and the kitchen well equipped for simple meal preparation. We enjoyed sitting on our patio in the evening watching darkness descend on our mountain view and awaiting the cooling evening offshore breeze to take away the heat of the day. We fell into a rhythm of exploring the area in the morning (Sierpe is a must) and enjoying the glorious saltwater pool and fabulous gardens in the heat of the afternoon. The "sails" above and around the pool assured shade was always possible. Although the casita sits on the same gloriously landscaped lot as the owners' home, our privacy was never compromised. The casita is physically set apart. Laurice and Dennis are very conscious of respecting personal space, but make themselves available to answer any questions and offer advice. When we did come together. we throughly enjoyed our conversations, particularly about the history of Ojochal. Learning about the development of this unique village is a Costa Rican exploration in and of itself."

  • Fabulous living with amazing views

    "Our first reaction when we walked in was ..... WOW, What an awesome place. The condo was spacious, relaxed and very well appointed. The bathrooms were spacious with instant hot water and good pressure. Washer/Dryer in the condo made us feel right at home. We loved to spend our mornings on the grand balcony watching and listening to the abundant wildlife. Our highlight one morning was watching two Red Iguanas in what we think was a mating ritual high in the tree canopy. To see nature in it's raw form truly was amazing. The pool down in common area was refreshing. The staff, Eilyn and Martha were extremely friendly and accommodating. Gracias! The daily maid service was excellent. Public transportation was literally right in front of condo. Our favorite restaurant was a "100ft journey". You can't go wrong with this condo. It's centrally located to Quepos and Manuel Antonio Park not to mention the beaches. We look forward to our return and exploring the countryside. Jeff&Gary"

  • Great Home! Great Value! Great Host!

    "I was part of a group of six adults and two children staying at this most awesome home for Christmas 2014. In every group, some can be comfortable, while others not. I loved Gary's home! Everything that is needed can be found here! I loved waking up before sunrise, sitting on the back porch with my husband watching the sun rise over the beach. Pool stayed in almost constant use. We used the built-in barbecue located next to the pool. This area also boasts showers, bathrooms, and volleyball net with ball! ready for a fun family game. In the backyard, the fence door opens right onto the beach. After walking on the beach there is a water hose making it easy to rinse the sand off. This house is in a perfect beach location! Really enjoyed walking for a couple of miles after the tide rolls out in the morning. Beautiful landscape, lots of nice people to meet. Most amenities Gary listed were put to good use, #1- WIFI! The Ping-Pong table held several matches, the foosball table saw some action. Even my husband enjoyed the rope swing… we have pictorial evidence. We enjoyed puzzles at the table in the evenings. On Christmas, we played our annual game of Risk which lasted to the next day! We left the game for many others to enjoy. If you like open air, then this home offers it! Large windows with large doors that allow good circulation throughout the main part of the house - gives a "beachy" feel and not closed up. Plenty of ceiling fans throughout the house! Full kitchen with plenty of counter-space. A large refrigerator and pantry. Easy to cook breakfast and dinners when desired. Bedrooms were spacious. If a box fan is not in your room, ask Gary and for an extension cord if need be! It is true the shower water is not American standard hot. Gary was able to adjust the water from being tepid to warm. Gary is the best host ever! Shortly after arriving my husband became ill from a flu he picked up at work and unable to travel to the airport the next day to pick up the rest of our group. At a moment's notice, Gary was able to make the second trip but also stop by the pharmacy to get flu medicine. His wife immediately provided two icepacks. Everybody's opinion matters, but only you can decide what is important to you! If you are looking for Pura Vida in Costa Rica with the greatest host, the greatest place, at the greatest price… choose property #17355!"

  • Our three week Moon Rosie winter get-away

    "Our time spent at Moon Rosie was one of peace and serenity. It had everything you could ask for to make your get away 100% worth the travel to get there. For me, some of the highlights were the sound of the constant mighty waves, waking up with the sunrise, tropical bird sounds, breakfast of fresh fruit on the deck facing the ocean everyday, playing in the shallow waves (the waves have a powerful undertow so it is wise to stay shallow), and of course the sunsets! The house had everything to accommodate all necessary conveniences. The owner provided maps and suggestions of recommended restaurants and places to visit. Driving to Quepos, Manual Antonio and Jaco we're only a 1/2 hour to 45 minutes away."
