  • Absolutely Delightful

    "My wife and I stayed at Toucan Tango for two weeks in late December 2014. We had a better than excellent time, due in no small part to the total environment of Toucan Tango. The attributes are evident from the photos: exquisite view over the rainforest canopy to the ocean, fantastic pool, a lovely home that is fully appointed and furnished. The details: if the elements of nature are not your thing.....then Toucan Tango is not for you. The howler monkeys, giant toads, and plethora of tropical birds are a symphonic backdrop for the entire evening and nighttime. Poolside kitchen is great. Even though there are a number of remarkable restaurants about 10 minutes away in Ojochal, we chose to spend most evenings cooking and dining on the patio. While I would characterize ourselves as adventurers, many days we never even got in our car, opting instead to hang out on the poolside patio and walking in the jungle surrounding the home. The patio is totally private. We were gracioiusly greeted by a neighborhood friend of the owners, who provided us with a thorough orientation. A very useful notebook for the house and region is provided by the owners. Their restaurant recommendations are spot on. The road accessing the house is a fairly rough gravel track which is steep in spots. Accordingly, the owners recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Our experience was that even when we forgot to switch our car into 4 wheel drive mode, there was no problem navigating the track. The house is very spacious. Kitchen is well appointed, and we love to cook. This place reflects great attention to aesthetic details. Great art throughout. Excellent ventilation. The BR's are all air conditioned, but we never once turned any of them on, preferring the gentle breeze provided by nature and about a dozen ceiling fans........even on the patio. The pool is one of the nicest I've experienced at a vrbo rental. Obviously, we are considering a return trip"

  • Casa Namaste! Romantic and private retreat in lovely San Josecito

    "My husband and I live in Dominical, Costa Rica and needed a place for a “stay-cation” when we had an overflow of visiting relatives in our own home. Casa Namaste was absolutely perfect for us – a true home away from home! Mercedes, daughter of the owner, greeted us warmly and then left us to ourselves, but always available if needed. The house is very private and enjoys a beautiful jungle and ocean view. It is beautifully decorated with artful objects from the owner’s extensive travels and cleverly designed to make the maximum use of space. Sliding glass doors and screens disappear into walls to create a gracious, chic and comfortable indoor-outdoor living space focused on the small, lagoon-like pool. The kitchen was well equipped and surprisingly well stocked. We never used the bedroom air conditioners because of the multiple ceiling fans and almost constant breezes passing through. We enjoyed the large flat screen TV and were able to stream Netflix with the fast wi-fi connection. We have stayed in many VRBO properties in Costa Rica and in other countries and feel that our stay in Casa Namaste was one of our best, most comfortable and relaxing ever. Kudo’s to Linn and Mercedes for what they have created and the grace with which they share it with others. We hope to see you again soon!"

  • Felt like our home away from home

    "Our family of 5 recently stayed here for a week and didn't want to leave! I hadn't realised how close to town this place is - it sits literally on the edge of town; and the town, along with Ivan's House, is built right on the beach. The yard is surrounded by trees, gardens or fencing though, so while its not secluded, you have plenty of privacy while at the house. The location was perfect for us and made cooking at the house easy since the local grocery store is just a one minute walk away if anything was needed. Plus we enjoyed hearing the sounds from town and of course the constant sound of the surf. Both downstairs bedrooms have full bathrooms and the loft bedroom has a half bath (no shower). The loft is also the only part of the house with AC. There is an outside sink which was handy for laundering small items and the clothes line in the back made it easy to dry towels and swim suits each day. The outside shower we used daily for washing all the sand out after returning from a swim. We had everything we needed here for an extended stay. Ivan was super to deal with from start to finish - always answered emails promptly and was patient with my many questions. He looked after the arrangements for the taxi-boat ride to get to Montezuma and made good suggestions for places to eat or things to see in the area. We also used his tour company (Zumatours) for a day-trip to Isla Tortuga and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. My favorite part of our stay was definitely the mornings - opening up all the shutters, watching the sun come up and enjoying a quiet cup of coffee while the breezes blew in from the ocean...wonderful!"
