A beach front villa of over 1 acre, 15 minutes North of down town Jaco.

The 3 homes made mostly out of Teak wood & local rock.

All 3 units over look the beach, with the pool home over looking both the pool & the beach.

All surrounded by Almond & other fruit trees, where Scarlet Macaws & other tropical birds come to feed daily.

The beach waters are calm and very safe for children to play.

A waterfall is only a short walk down the beach, where you can wash off the salt water before walking back to the house to cool off in the pool.

The location of this particular beach front estate is ideal for travelers who would like to explore CR.

Close to all major attractions in the area and yet is very private, peaceful and full of wild life.

The estate has available a bilingual concierge, cooking staff, house keeper, & 24 hour security guard.

Please understand that at times ants will be found around the kitchen if you do not clean after your done .

This villa is on the outskirts of the rainforest and at certain times all sorts of wild life may be found around the villa.

If you feel that you can not accept ants coming around the kitchen to see what they could find is probably best to find more suitable accommodations.

Subject: thank you again and again

Just looking at our pictures of Macaw Beach and wishing I was still there.

It's been so hard adjusting to 'real' life again.

I can't tell you how many people we have all bragged to about your paradise in Costa Rica.

I don' t think in our wildest dreams we could have come up with a better place to stay or better people to spend time with.

The guys have loved giving out the website with their Sail fish pictures on it. Paul and I are already planning to return in September. I will keep in touch and let you know what we figure out. If you need any testimonials please let me know or just add my email and address to your list of satisfied customers.

Take care and I hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks again for the best vacation ever,

Carrie Ensogna

About Sal

Retired and moved to the coast to fish, found this villa and renovated it.

Sal purchased this villa in 2003

Why Sal chose Jaco

The location is perfect, not too far from San Jose about an hour away and the fishing is great around here.

What makes this villa unique

Since this villa is on the beach it self, is easy go fishing every day.

At the same time is close to downtown but not so close, so you can feel relaxed and away form it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello! My family and I just spent six weeks at the Macaw House and want to let you know what a wonderful experience it was.

Everything was beautiful and we had a great time!

Your staff helped make the trip so nice.

The staff supervisorl was extremely helpful in anything we needed -- he arranged drivers for us, told us places to go.

I want to express my gratitude to him, and the rest of the staff.

They are all very nice people and made it so enjoyable for us!

Rosaura even brought me a bouquet of flowers on my birthday!

Thank you for the use of the home. I'm sure we'll be back!

Relaxing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

10 of us recently had the pleasure of vacationing at this property for 7 days. Words are not adequate to express how pleasant our stay was at the facility. The staff supervisor was always available for any questions we might have had, recommendations for tours and restaurants, and medical emergencies (which we had). If we needed anything, the staff supervisor did his best to make sure we were accommodated including running errands for food, beverages or last minute souvenirs. And always with a smile!

The staff was on hand everyday for maintenance and cleaning, never interfering. We ordered a cook for one night and had one of the best dinners with freshly caught Corvina (Sea Bass). Our only regret as that we didn't take advantage of that service more.

The location was quiet and sedate with spectacular views. The housing was clean and comfortable. We were visited by scarlet macaws and iguanas. We drank straight from coconuts and were able to pick fruit off the trees for the parrots in the bird house, as well as, for ourselves. Overall, our stay couldn't have been more perfect. If you are looking for a place relax and unwind, then look no further, this is it!

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from Costa Rica and we had a wonderful time at the House of the Macaws. Sal was very helpful and such a gracious host. Roxi kept the house clean and is an amazing cook. We would recommend this home to those with families.

You won't find a better stay, deal or concierge services

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start. Our concierge Sal was on top of things from the get go. He had transportation set up when we landed for our group, he was the first to greet us when we arrived and had everything ready and stocked throughout the houses requested. There is nothing like being able wake up each morning, have the aromas of Costa Rican coffee being brewed by the in house cook Roxy and enjoy the sun either be it poolside or through the back 40 yards to the beach and ocean. It was definitely a surreal vacation for my group and we are figuring how we can come together to stay there again. The location will not be beat, a few minutes from Jaco and any excursion you may want to try out. I would say rent a car but the deposit is steep. Sal can arrange anything you need. My group is in the travel industry and we couldn't thank him enough for all he would do. He became my eternal amigo and just made my experience one to remember. If you need to read it again. Five Stars Book it, you won't regret it. Pura Vida!!!

Beautiful beachfront Costa Rican villa w pool & amazing staff

  • 5 of 5

House was great. Cute 3 bedroom villa type main house on well manicured property, right off the black sand beach. We actually rented all 3 houses available. All are right next to each other, just off the beach. Pool right there to relax, along w lounge chairs & picnic tables. Service was top notch. Very knowledgable about the area. Recommended best restaurants/food spots, adventures such as ATV's through the gorgeous rain forest, places to go, golf course to play... any question needed was answered. Breakfast every morning was served. Cab or van ride as you needed was ready. Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed staying here & will definitely be back. Had an amazing trip

We were a party of 10.This villa was perfect for our group.We were split between 3 buildings.The main house was 3 bdrms(all had A/C) 1 bathrm, living area, compact but functional kitchen,spacious covered patio and beautiful pool.The other 2 houses were close but still felt very private.We had a beach view from the main house and often watched shrimp/fishing boats on the water at night. Our accomadations were casual but comfortable and we enjoyed seeing all kinds of local wildlife, insects and birds in and around the property. Our favorites were the macaws the iguanas and the toucans. The nearest town, Jaco was only about 7 miles south and had everything we needed.Traffic wasnt too bad depending on time of day and rd. constrution. Weekends were usually busy. Lots of bicycles mopeds and motorbikes weaving in and out of trafffic. bit scarey and takes some getting used to. I cannot say enough good things about the staff and how well they all looked after us. Hayling was our very shy but charming housekeeper.She spoke abit of english and a few in our group had a bit of spanish. We would often ask her to share our lunch/snacks and our conversations were fun with a mixture of english,spanish and charades. A few words about Sal jr. He was very friendly and always spoke with great pride when talking about his country and its culture. He always worked very hard to keep the villa grounds and pool spotless. He was also a an excellent impromptu tour guide. Often later at night he would take my nefews on a tour of the local area. The animals that come out at night were always weird and wonderful. He is very proud of his country and will show you the best of PURA VIDA. Finally a few words about Sal sr. If you want to know about or need ANYTHING...Just ask Sal. He can advise you about anything and everything and makes perfect recommendations. Examples: croc tours,sailboat/trimeran rental, recommend local restraunts,shopping, beaches, where to see and feed monkeys,where to buy fresh fish, fruit and veg,best surf beaches, parks and jungle tours and so much more .I think Sal sr. must know everyone in Costa Rica.Anytime we asked himfor info or a recommendation, he would say "I know a guy...Let me make a call." He was always very accommidating and did everything possible to make our holiday the best experiance. Upon arrival we were given a house cell phone and were able to make free calls home to Canada. I would defintly recommend this villa if you are a large group or small.

Wonderful Family Trip to Costa Rica

  • 4 of 5

Our family and friends (15 in total) spent 4 days at the 3 properties right on the beach! The landscape was lush and beautiful. Grounds were consistanly well taken care of daily. Sal the owner and all other staff were fantastic. Sal gave us great references for activities and authentic local restuarants. Sal Jr. took us on a night hike and his knowledge of all aspects of the natural environment is impressive. We would definetly return and recommend it to travelers. Pura Vida!
