  • wonderful jungle getaway!

    "We spent two week's in Michelle's beautiful house and really enjoyed it. We loved the gardens, the terraces, the great kitchen, the huge upstairs bedroom, the outdoor showers, and the overall Spanish feel of the house. The almost daily titi monkey visits to the banana trees really added to the experience! The beach was a minute away and it was lovely to swim in the "infinity" river pool overlooking the gulf. Melanie and Kim were kind, helpful, and fun hosts and we felt very taken care of during our stay. Thank you also to Maru for her great housekeeping. We will be back!"

  • Awesome Family Vacation

    "We spent 8 nights at this wonderful tropical paradise. The condo grounds are well kept and the Property Manager Christian was very helpful in assisting us with the many activities we did during our stay there. I highly recommend this location as it is close to downtown as well as the beach and the rain forest is very close by."

  • Muy Tranquillo!

    "We spent 5 nights at the Pelican House at the beginning of the green season. Almost every day we had a little rain and lots at night. It was nice as the rain helped to cool things down. We of course had plenty of sun! We loved the design of the house and really enjoyed the fans throughout as well as the indoor/outdoor hammocks. The house has an outdoor shower, which was fantastic (someone wrote in the house book to take two showers a day), I agree…very refreshing. Rafa, the caretaker was an amazing host. He showed us how to cook with yucca, cleaned pineapple and coconut for us. He does not speak English, however is a great communicator (I brought along a Spanish/English dictionary). It was so neat to be fully immersed in Spanish. Once you get to the beach, which is about a 5 minute walk from the house, hang a left, cross over little river and head down beach for about 25 minutes to the Pearl of the Osa. Nice little restaurant with great service. Oh by the way on the path to the beach we also saw a family of about 10-12 squirrel monkeys. Puerto Jimenez is about 25-30 minutes from the house and the BM grocery has everything you might need…you will even get a good laugh when you mutilate your Espanola? Go to Marisqueria on the beach and have a beer and the ceviche…..awesome! While at the Pelican House went on the Fincakobo chocolate tour and had a great snack at the end (bananas and chocolate)….be aware that it is a ways outside of town and if you need a taxi it is about $80. We also took a dolphin tour (Changing Tides with Maryann)……don’t worry captain is Tino and not Gilligan?…you will get home. We were able to swim with the dolphins (spinner) and took a tour of an animal rescue with Sarah and Carol, they were great hosts and we are thankful there are people in the world like them. Advice: Too much to do, go back often……we did not get to see Carate or Matapalo, which we heard was beautiful. Buy lots of water at the store and bring multiple bottles of sun tan lotion and bug spray. Sleep in the hammocks…..turn fan on outside on the desk and relax with cold beer or coffee in the morning? There is no outdoor grill…so be prepared to cook inside. Allison and Jim the house was beautiful and the breeze and fans were a much needed relief after coming down from Sierpe Thanks! can’t wait to come back."

  • Best balcony view around, fast comp. internet, reasonably priced, clean

    "My husband and I just got back from a wonderful 1-week stay at this villa. Really, we couldn't have asked for anything more - from the beautiful view right from your super sized balcony, to the nice pool, to the complimentary wifi and cold AC - we were more than pleased with everything. You can tell that the owner takes good care of this property. It is very well-kept and some of the things in it you won't find at any other rental for this price. It is not a large condo, but it is much larger than your typical hotel room and, more importantly, it has all of the essentials for 2 people, including a microwave, small fridge, coffee maker, LCD TV with satellite connection, a digital safe in the closet, plenty of hangers for your closet, hair dryer in the bathroom. The linen, pillows and mattress were newer, which was very nice to have. We travel quite often and know what's out there, so believe me this is a super deal for what you get. Personally, I loved the tropical vegetation of the rainforest right outside your balcony. We also liked the amazing ocean views also right from your own balcony. If you look out into the rainforest, you will see monkeys, specially in the afternoon hours. We saw a bunch of white-face monkeys as well as titi monkeys. We didn't rent a car so ended up taking $3 taxi ride to Quepos - very easy and there are lots of them around. There is also a bus stop - going in both directions-right out-front. It goes by every 30 minutes and every 15 minutes during lunch hours. It is centrally located so you don't need a car. You can walk pretty much everywhere. In the afternoons, we walked to the local super market, which was right next door and we bought fresh vegetables and fish. The super market is small but you can find pretty much anything you can think of. That was very nice, indeed. If you are booking a tour, you have many to choose from, all of which can be planned for once you check-in at the on-site rental office. All tours will get picked up and dropped off right outside your condo. The beach was a pleasant 20 minute walk. If you don't like to walk, you can pick up the bus right outside the property and you'll be at the beach and the Manuel Antonio National Park in less than 5 minutes. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who is interested in the conveniences of staying in a condo versus a hotel, at a great reasonable rate, with a million dollar view, and an owner who really makes sure you have a pleasant stay."
