  • Rainforest seclusion

    "This zen little getaway is perfectly secluded high in the mountainous rainforest. It was so relaxing and romantic to feel like the only two people in the world. The constant buzz of cicadas and cries of birds of prey played the perfect soundtrack for ambient white noise. I can't imagine a better backdrop to recharge one's body, mind and soul than the dramatic sunsets with a 360 view from the mountains to the Pacific. It was so obvious that Paula and Marty care deeply about their guests and their chosen home, down to each exquisite detail and the gracious hospitality we were shown."

  • 6 days of family adventure in paradise

    "and our top 6 reasons for why we will be going back to la Cuesta Roja: 1. Family-friendly - my partner and I and our two boys (7 & 9) had an adventure that will never be forgotten! We had no worries about their safety, lots of room to roam and expend energy, days were spent playing in the waves, running up and down the stairs - not as onerous as has been described, very manageable, generally discovering. Great house layout with separate room and bathroom for the kids, though we lived on the covered porch when not down at the beach or exploring the jungle. 2. Wildlife - the howler monkeys hung out one day in the trees beside the house, the 4 scarlet red macaws who returned to "their" tree daily, the lizards, the crabs, the wild horses on the beach across from the house, and all the dogs! Who needs a zoo - just go to la Cuesta Roja! 3. Vista & natural setting - overwhelmingly beautiful, just get in the hammock each morning and pinch yourself - it is real and it is amazing! Beaches to wander, jungle to explore, we paddled on the river and explored the mangroves. The stunning flowers around the property, discovering how pineapples grow, mango trees, banana trees and being able to eat as much coconut as we could! 4. La Cuesta Roja is remote yet so very comfortable - beds, cooking, small fridge, showers & flushing toilets (!), fab solar-powered system - never failed, laundry (!), even an iPod dock for our tunes in the evening!!! Jim has thought of everything. There are even 5-6 pairs of boots and 6 life-jackets as well as 2 boogie boards. 5. Jim was more like a friend than an owner, we really enjoyed our time with him - including a day of fantastic fishing - who catches a sailfish and a rooster fish - we did (well, Jim's expertise did!)!! He was so easy to work with, patiently answered all our Qs before we arrived, was available to us when were on-site and then shared pictures with us after our trip. Jim, you've got friends in Toronto!!! 6. This was a life experience, it is the most talked-about part of our 2wk trip in Costa Rica (surfing lessons in Dominical ranked #2!) and I've shared Jim's web-site link with loads of friends and encouraged them to take their own adventure. We'll be back :-)"

  • First time in Costa Rica - Best trip ever!

    "We are a family of five with teenagers. As we have never rented a house through VRBO before, we were pleasantly surprised with the fabulous accommodations and the convenience of it all. The house was spacious and well decorated, with all the necessary amenities in good working order. The Infinity pool and outdoor shower were a big hit. Even my wife who never swims in pools took a few dips. Our youngest boy was in constant awe of the surroundings, with many iguana, toucan, monkey and other animal sightings. We even saw an owl land in a neighbouring palm tree. The owner and his staff really take care of this place and we would recommend it to friends and family. On occasion, the road noise is a bit noticeable, but did not take away from our fabulous experience overall. Jaco and Playa Hermosa are outstanding places to visit. Our kids learned to surf and loved the ATV trip through the mountains, which included swimming in a natural waterfall lagoon. WOW!!! Can't wait to come back in the near future!"

  • Paradise Found

    "We stayed at Casa Teka for 5 days and we had a truly amazing experience. This beautiful home is close enough to town, but far away from the traffic. The only sounds you can hear is the ocean waves crashing on a tranquil beach only steps away and the monkeys and exotic birds playing in the mango trees throughout the lush green garden setting surrounding the property. The large open outdoor deck lets you be one with nature as you sit within the tree canopy. The local market one block away has all the food essentials and supplies that you would need and Mary's restaurant (walking distance) is a great place to treat yourself to dinner. I would recommend Casa Teka for a family vacation, romantic getaway, surf/fishing trip, or anyone who wants to have an authentic Costa Rican experience. The manager Pia took great care of us and we are already looking forward to our next visit. Pura vida."
