  • Great Family Holiday Home

    "The description of the house and surroundings given in this website, really correspond with what you encounter when you arrive. Because it was a repeat visit for us, we already were familiar with the house and surroundings. The reason we chose to come back is that all 4 children wanted to come back, without hesitation, and we felt that we had not yet explored the entire area to the fullest. Also, last year was our most relaxed holiday ever. The house is very comfortable and spacious enough so that you can be together, or take some distance from each other would you desire to do so. The house is very tastefully decorated. The kitchen is well equipped. With a good internet connection and cellular reach everywhere, you can choose to be connected with " the rest of the world" whenever you want to. It is very child friendly, and the children have a lot of room to explore on their own! With a large pool right in front of the back porch, it is easy to keep an eye on them, while enjoying the spectacular view in the background. The thought that there is someone on the premises night and day, to keep up the property including the pool, nature trail and garden is comforting. We try to take long excursions one day and then stay close to home the next day. On our days around the house, we hike the nature trail down to the waterfall, which is on the premises, we gather fruit from the trees in the garden, have a BBQ and just chill. On the days out, we take a horseback riding tour, which leaves out of Londres, only 5 minutes away, we drive to Manuel Antonio (25 min) for some souvenir shopping and a nice bite to eat, we visit the local market in Quepos, (20 min) on Friday evening and Saturday morning, or we take a bit longer drive (40 min) to the endless and quiet beaches of Matapalo or even further. There are many excursions very close by such as ziplining, rafting, surfing, mangroves, nature park, fishing, you name it, it is available. Mr. Jose, the contact person, is extremely helpful and knows all the nice spots in the area. Summarizing, a great luxurious house, well suited for families with small children, in the middle of the rainforest, with a spectacular view and endless possibilities of tours and beaches just around the corner."

  • Want to go right back

    "This house was great! It is very private and quiet yet a short drive to a very nice clubhouse. It is also a short drive to some wonderful surf breaks. We rented mountain bikes in a nearby village (Lemon II) and rode them to various beaches in Rancho Santana on new, well kept shady trails (not really for inexperienced mtn bikers but easy to hike). The view from the house was exceptional...wake up and look out at the ocean from the master bed. The housekeeper, Gladys, and groundskeeper, Leo, were super nice and were happy to help us with our Spanish. Roger, the owner, is a great guy too. We totally recommend this rental!"

  • Tough to beat this property at any price!!

    "We travelled with 3 families, 6 adults and 7 kids ranging in ages from 12 – 16. Our Hosts, David and Edie, were very accommodating during the planning process. They have extensive “lifestyle” experience in Nosara and coordinated all activities including surf lessons, zip-lining, snorkeling, fishing, etc. Even fronting deposits and grocery money to make sure we had supplies when we arrived. The “Jungle’s Edge” property is quite unique. The main house is spacious, relatively updated and well-maintained. The pool and outside living space is the greatest asset of the property. There are lots of bedrooms- a huge primary master, another that can be considered a master, 2 more with queen beds that share a fairly small bathroom, a large loft with 2 bunkbeds and another room with queen and bunkbeds and it's own bathroom. A walk out the front door offers a close up view to the Howler Monkeys. Would strongly recommend hiring cooks for your group. Shopping for groceries is not an easy effort and kitchen cleanup is best handled by them, especially with no dishwasher. The food that was prepared was very good but a little more variety and less effort on our part to coordinate would have made the meal experience much better. When David is not around to translate, it made communicating a little tough. We did not rent cars, but had them arrange taxis from the airport. Transportation once we arrived, is relatively well managed. There are 2 vehicles available, an SUV and a large pickup truck with bench seating in the cargo area for up to 10 people. David and Manuel are available most of the time, but its best to plan your activities at least a ½ day in advance. There is a nominal charge for transportation. Playa Guiones, is great spot for surfing and sunsets. Although you can walk there, estimate about 20 -25 minutes. Carrying surfboards, chairs ( which are all available on property for a small rental fee) etc. is best done with vehicles. You can easily walk to a very good restaurant, located at the base of the property. Don't miss Olgas for sunset and dinner on the beach. There is also a fitness studio at the bottom of the property- make sure to arrange workouts with Davis- he is amazing and the kids loved their tailored workouts. Pamper yourselves with massages on the deck of the house. Everyone at Jungles Edge was very pleasant and attentive to our needs. The more advanced planning you do with David, the smoother your trip will be!"

  • The best location to feel the atmosphere of the old town

    "We spent 3 days in the Studio which is located in the most charming and authentic location of Panama City. Patty and Rudy are great hosts and the quality of the studio really deserves 5 stars!! It is quiet, clean and fully equipped! It is like being at home away from home!"
