"We've made 5 trips to Costa Rica; renting casa through VRBO every year. This year was the best place we've ever stayed at!! It's a beautiful casa with everything you could ask for and more. It's very secure, within walking distance to Jaco & it's busy, fun Playa yet far enough away that we got to take in the beauty that surrounded us. We just loved it Tom. The A/C was a huge plus for us and having a washer/dryer was great to be able to go home with all clean clothes. For years I've had to deal with "solar drying". The dryer wasn't working but we found it was only a breaker. Abner is the property manager that gave us the keys upon arrival at the airport; he lives in San Jose` so you might be better served, if you want to do tours etc., to use the tour center in the heart of Jaco. We have always used Zuma for our transportation to and from our casas and car rental; Warren, Reggie, Carlos have been fantastic for us. Jaco itself has gone from a place we would never stay to a place we can't wait to get back to. The Playa has been improved every year, cleaned up - now with playground equipment and life guards. It's such a pleasure to be able to cook your own meals and Casa Tranquila has the best grill area and the outside patio has 2 fans. Awesome grill!!! We bought fresh sea bass in Tarcoles (where we have usually stayed & it's gone downhill in upkeep over the years); had many meals out under the patio. Went to Tacobar several times & brought home ceviche to eat at "our casa". The Wi-Fi never failed. We never experienced the flooding we did in the casa we rented in years past. This property is very secure all the way around. The pool is just beautiful and tranquil & the outside shower is so nice. Neighbor Jason even gave me fresh eggs from his chickens! This casa is huge!! It was only my husband and I and surf board rented from Chuck's WOW; that board had its own room LOL. We loved all the TV's too & it seemed to us there were more channels to choose from. The beautiful fountain provided a soothing sound & brought birds from all over. There were severe rain storms 2 nights before we left but we weren't worried that the roof would come off like years past! Thank you Tom for allowing us to stay in tranquility at your beautiful casa. We will be back to Costa Rica next year & can only hope Casa Tranquil will be available for us again. This is the spot!! We're so glad we found it. You need not look any further if you're reading this."

"I really wanted to share our deepest thanks to guys for letting us stay in such a beautiful home. Our jaw dropped as we walked through the door. Our week in Costa Rica was absolutely phenomenal and would make a strong recommendation to anyone planning a trip to this beautiful country, treat you and your family to a stay here in the beautiful Casa Maganda. There were so many highlights from bird watching, to river rafting, four wheeling. There is so many to name and all of the tour companies picked us up right from the front door here!!! Such a great experience, thanks again."

"Thank you Tim,
Having spent past several years going south and cruising I must say that we have never experienced anything quite like your lovely home and the beauty of Hermosa Palms. The home itself is well laid out and very comfortable. The only issue we had was with a sink drain and that was handled promptly. This community is truly a magical place with a monkey to eat from your hands in the back yard to the beautiful macaws making thier daily 3.30 pm flight around the pool. We had coffee every morning around 6.30 am at the tiki hut poolside looking out over a spectacular beach scene. Days spent exploring the country side and evenings on the beach applauding the most glorious sunsets. It truly is that beautiful.. The people that we met there were mostly resident owners but without exception they made us feel very welcome. I can not say enough about our personal experience. Be aware though that this may be habit forming, as we were making plans for a return before we left. Perhaps an extended stay of lets say a month next time. What do you think Tim, can you part with this little slice of heaven for that long for us?
Again many thanks
We look forawrd to our return.
Harold & Janet"
