Relaxing Jungle Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights and loved it! The views were beautiful and the cabin was cozy. We loved sitting on the front porch listening to the rain. Having no TV was a nice break from day to day life. The river and lounge area were a perfect way to spend an afternoon. If you are looking for some time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this is your spot. We will be back again and hope to bring friends to stay in the other cabin!

The property is listed in Quepos next to Manuel de Antonio on the website map, however it is actually between Parrita and Quepos, 3 miles down a dirt road, in the middle of no where, which takes 45 minutes in a taxi and thirty bucks to get to the listed location. There are basically no restaurants or stores in this area either and you need to speak Spanish to describe the location to any taxi, and we actually only had 1 of 8 taxi drivers know where the heck we were talking about needing to go. If you dont speak Spanish Im really not sure how you would find the location.

The property itself was adequate and as described. The man that lives on the same property with his family was accommodating, but he does not speak English either, so speaking Spanish here is really a must, especially if you need a taxi out, which you will unless you rent a car. You are no where near the beach either and the only place to walk would be along the dirt road that leads to it.

We were given the location the day we left the US and due to it being new years eve weekend, we had no other alternatives for places to stay. When I told the owner that the location does not match the description of the property he told me he wasnt sure why that was and he would fix it right away. The location is still the same some 3 weeks later though.

We tried to follow the VRBO support resolution pathway by contacting the owner to work towards a solution, which was please refund the amount of taxi fare that we have had to incur due to the fraud you have committed in your listing's location, however the owner told us he couldn't believe we thought we could stay in Quepos for the price he had listed, and that he would refund us zero nor do anything else to help. Yes, actually we did believe we could stay in Quepos for that price BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT YOU DESCRIBED IN YOUR LISTING SIR. Also, how could we (or you potentially) know what costs are in a foreign country? We were visitors after all and have to put our trust in others when travelling.

All this said, we would not stay here again and I would caution anyone looking at properties of these owners (their names are listed and they have other properties). This listing really ruined our time in Manuel de Antonio and I hope this review prevents it from doing the same for anyone looking to potentially stay here.

Owner's Response: Dylan - I'm sorry you had a really bad experience. This is the first for us and we take it personally. When we spoke on the phone, I had strongly recommended that you rent a car. My cabin is remote and is advertised as so. You insisted that you and your party are experienced hikers and don't mind the 3 mile hike off the main road to the rain forest. I even suggested a bus service that cost $1 that will drop you off at the entrance to the 3 mile hike that leads to my cabins. As for the location, it is pinned accurately. You stated there are no stores available. There are 2 stores within a mile from the cabin. We are 15 minutes to the town Quepos, 20-25 minutes from Manuel Antonio beaches. Once again... I will reiterate this is a REMOTE location. It is advertised for guests who want to experience a serene Costa Rican lifestyle. Efrain is a local and I apologize he doesn't speak English. He is, however, knows the lay of the land and is accommodating to all of my guests. If you read other reviews, people had described our location and its surroundings perfectly. Once again, I apologize that you had a bad experience. Best of luck - Dan & Sheyla

Cabin in the jungle

  • 4 of 5

These cabins are a more authentic "campo" experience than you would be able to have in Manuel Antonio or Quepos. The drive is around 40 minutes to Manuel Antonio, just 15 minutes to the BM grocery on the edge of Quepos. You should definitely have 4w drive, especially if it rains! The caretaker Efrain is very sweet and helpful. The family added baby-proofing for our toddler on the deck, which was awesome. The views from the cabin are excellent and the property is gorgeous. The deck looks out into the jungle and you can hear the creek. Highlights included seeing poison dart frogs and making limeade from the fruit on the trees outside. Internet is only functional in the mornings from the cabins, but lots of places in quepos and Manuel Antonio have wifi. The 2 bedroom cabin is quite small and only sleeps 4. The AC was really nice after days at the beach.

Great Place to see Central Pacific Costa Rica from

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Ginger Cabin for our entire 10 days in Costa Rica. The cabin provided everything we needed. We were able to cook at the cabin if we didn't want to go out. Beautiful property and setting with constant sound of flowing water from the covered porch. We spent most nights on the porch recovering from the day and planning the next day. Looking back we should have spent more time at the river cabana on the property. We were greeted with a great basket of fruit on arrival. I can't say enough. We loved our stay here!

A peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Ginger Cabins was an experience of a lifetime. The mountain views and rivers that ran through the property provided a tranquil relaxing secluded experience. Quepos was a 15-20 minute drive which was perfect for evenings out and fine dining. Life moves at a slower much needed pace in Costa Rica. Yet had the amenities and excursions very near by for those that are adventurous. 10/10 would recommend to anyone planning a trip to Costa Rica

Three Weeks in the loveliest cabins!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 3 weeks in the lovely Ginger Cabins. What a perfect antidote to anything that ails you...or doesn't! The cottage was perfect, simply and beautifully appointed. The porch is it's own outdoor living space and my daughter and I lived out there. At this time of year, the rain showers hit many days late afternoon and they were part of the magic of the place. The owners were incredibly kind and helpful and made our stay comfortable and effortless. Don't miss an opportunity to visit this very special property. If you're looking for the beauty of the tropical jungle, close enough to enjoy town while you take in the mountains surrounding Quepos, this is your destination!
