  • HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

    "We loved Paradise found! It was the perfect Costa Rican getaway house with all the necessary amenities from cookware to beach towels! No air conditioning, but ceiling fans in every room kept the house cool. Nice veranda out front to escape the hot sun and look out at the beach a few yards away. Lovely clean pool was refreshing and a great place to sip cocktails in the evening. Several restaurants close by including Los Pelicanos-our favorite! Short drive to Jaco for grocery stores, bank, gift shops etc. Great house for familiies and or group of friends. Mark, the caretaker and his sweet family live on the premises and are there to answer questions or give advice. We can not wait to go back!"

  • A Month In Paradise!

    "We chose Casa Mono Titi for a month long stay and were not disappointed. Everything was great from the amenities of the house to the fabulous wide open view. The house is located 10+ mins south of Ojochal. There are 2 variety stores, a restaurant and an excellent meat market in Coronada where you turn off to take the 8 minute steep, scenic drive to the house. Our grocery shopping was mostly done at the BM supermarkets in Uvita about 20 mins north but discovered we could drive same distance south to the Palmar Norte BM supermarket; prices and selection were a bit better. I suggest buying duty free liquor/wine at the SJO airport as prices are cheaper. Most of our fruits and veg were bought at the Saturday market in Uvita or at roadside stands. The house has a charcoal BBQ with a neat gimmick to get the charcoal going. Try the smoked pork chops (chuletas de cerdo ahumadas) from the Carniceria (butcher shop in Coronada); their meat is excellent, their English is not! Restaurants we enjoyed were the Boca Coronada and the Tilapia Farm (2nd one) on the way to Ojochal as well as Exotica, Citrus, Mama y Papas, Ylang Ylang, all excellent choices in Ojochal. Fabrizio's has fabulous pizza and pasta (the gnocchi was delish)-small seating area but they offer take-out. If going to Dominical, try Por-Que-No restaurant then check out their small beach. Our days started at 5:30 to in order catch the best of the bird and wildlife action. The Mono Titi monkeys were frequent visitors in the large trees; watch for branch movement as they can be hard to spot. That's what we loved most about "living" here, every day provided a new amazing nature experience. Remember you are in the jungle so expect surprises! The Corcovada day trip was excellent; be sure to take backpack with water, snack, binoculars, camera and water shoes (not flip flops) as you get on/off the boat in the water. Expect 4 hours of hiking in the jungle; you will need closed walking shoes or, if has been very wet, boots would be best. The Osa Ziplining was OK (Arenal ziplining is better); not sure their rope bridge is safe! The house has well-stocked kitchen, A/C in bdrms, lots of dvds, books and bird guides, many comfy and shaded outdoor seating choices and a refreshing pool w outdoor shower. Denise, the property manager and David, our pool guy were wonderful. We learned so much from both of them, which made our stay here an experience we will never forget. Thank you Karen and Mario for sharing your lovely casa!"

  • Paradise in Puntarenas!

    "I had the pleasure of staying at Oceano and I must say it was the perfect getaway! Backing onto the beach with private access the palm tree covered property is quite stunning and situated in a great location. Whether you want to spend time at the beach catching the sunrise/sunset (which are next to none) or at the pool, both options are fully at your disposal. They also offer a great outdoor covered area with BBQ, making it a perfect spot to spend time with friends and family. Owners Rupi and Karin are great people, very accommodating and knowledgeable of the surrounding area. The caretakers Ronald and Bernie are super friendly and keep everything in great shape; rooms and property are always clean, with laundry and meal options available at your disposal. With Puntarenas being a cruise ship destination there are many day trips and overnight adventures that one can choose if they wish; hot springs surrounding the Arenal Volcano and zip lining through the mountains at Miramar just to name a few. Overall my experience in Costa Rica was next to none, and staying at Oceano was the perfect choice! Thanks to Rupi and Karin for providing the perfect place! Michael"

  • Bliss in Santa Teresa

    "Having rented homes in numerous parts of Costa Rica before we were looking forward to trying a new area. Santa Teresa is a delightful town and a wonderful place to hang out. Maison Marazul is everything it appears to be on the website. The home itself could not be nicer and indeed the photos do portray an honest reflection of what you get (and will love!). The owner/management team were very straightforward and easy to deal with in the transaction....no curveballs at all from them and all payments/refunds etc were handled in an honest and efficient manner. In summary I would highly recommend this home...you will not be disappointed."
