  • Canto Del Mar Villa

    "The listing description was accurate regarding the location . The listing photos reflected accurately the rental's appearance and amenities - very beautiful! The property was very clean and well maintained. The owner or the manager respectively was VERY helpful in answering our questions and concerns. I would recommend the property to a ralative or friend. Since we stayed there with a little child we cannot recommend any activities exept the pool and the beach... We enjoyed our stay very much!"

  • Met all our expectations and more

    "We were looking for a place to just unwind and relax and this home was perfect. Our biggest desicion was if we wanted to swim in the pool first or the ocean. The beach front setting was just what we needed and listening to the waves at night was awesome. We were able to buy fresh fish right on the beach when the local fisherman came in and cook them right on the grill by the pool. Would definitely return for another stay."

  • A Completely Relaxing Couple of Weeks

    "As others here and in travel guides have indicated, Sierpe is a quiet town at the edge of a patchwork of palm plantations: the jumping off point for river tours, fishing and junkets to Drake’s Bay. Based largely on the comments from fellow reviewers, we had the pleasure of booking 2 weeks through our hosts, Morton and Mary Ann. The house lies several hundred metres from the Sierpe town square, a market and not far from a small row of hotels, tour operator offices and family-style restaurants serving typical tico fare. Morton undertook major renovations a number of years ago and keeps it in good shape. The floor plan is open with ample kitchen, dining, living room, and office that are all contiguous. It easily accommodated 5 of us with a nice balance of social space and room for privacy. Morton has also installed air conditioning. This was definitely a luxury and welcome respite from the heat and humidity. We had fine weather and spent most of our time lounging, reading and hanging out on the covered patio: retreating into the cool of the house after dark when the mosquitos came out. The patio overlooks the Sierpe river is a great place to watch birds, iguanas and other wildlife including crocodiles drifting in the current downstream. Morton is a terrific and gracious host. He arrived right after New Year’s, staying in his other house across town (2 minutes away) and would pop round for a beer and a chat or to see if we needed anything. Sonya, a neighbour who helps out with the house, is also a delight. She stopped by from time to time to check in and surprised us by sharing some of her homemade desserts. Sonya’s son runs river cruises and fishing trips and we enjoyed an evening wildlife outing on the water with him. In all, Sierpe may not have much going on compared to the hustle and bustle and party scene in Jaco. However, staying at Morton’s house was the perfect choice for us: a spacious house, a warm and congenial community, and laid back. There were plenty of opportunities to traipse about the area, head up the coast or out to Corcovado, Drake’s Bay, the mangrove swamps along the river, or to chill out on the patio and do nothing at all. Just what we were looking for!"

  • A beautiful retreat in Ojochal

    "My husband and I were able to stay at the guesthouse for two weeks in early March. The house was perfect for the two of us. It is very well maintained, clean and furnished very nicely. The outside patio was great for a quiet breakfast, or dinner - or just enjoying the surrounding gardens. The last day of our stay we even saw a troop of howler monkeys travel from tree to tree across the back yard. A dip in the saline pool was a refreshing way to spend some of the hot afternoons. The owners were very helpful since they are quite familiar with the area. The location of the guesthouse is just off the main highway, so you don't have to drive on the "local" roads much at all. Ojochal is only about a 45 minute drive from Sierpe to the south and Quepos to the north - making it an easy drive to so many attractions! It is also a great location with many nearby beaches to explore and gourmet restaurants to enjoy. We really enjoyed our stay - and would love to go back and stay here again in the (near!!) future."
