Excellent Choice!Ype is the best

  • 5 of 5

Excelent experience at the house. The location is wonderful, a wooden house set up in a wild hill full of life and green. The house is very nice, exc view, full furnished kitchen and with all the commodities you might need. The best part of the stay is the histrionic owner YPE. Full of recommendations, polyglot, always more than helpful and gentle. Only tip before u go: rent a 4WD vehicole.

Very nice stay with friends!

  • 5 of 5

Me and two other friends stayed for 5 days at Ype's vacation home and it was by far one of the best stays we had in Costa Rica. He was very welcoming and a great host all around. If we had questions on what to do or where to find it , he had the answer. We enjoyed being able to cook for ourselves and being provided all the ingredients for breakfast! Hot showers and comfortable beds and hammocks made it the best nights of sleep we had in Costa Rica. The landscape surrounding the home is breath taking. We also enjoyed having rescued dogs around during our stay. We even encountered a group of squirrel-monkeys right behind the house. I highly recommend Ype for any type of stay. Thank you and Pura vida!

Beautiful jungle house

  • 5 of 5

The travel to the house is a bit tricky, definitely recommend traveling by day. Once we arrived, Ype opened the gates to his spectacular home! Our clean and comfy bedrooms were upstairs. There were plenty of hammocks and hammock chairs for lounging and listening to the jungle sounds. We hiked on the beautifully landscaped paths taking us to hilltop views, creeks, topical fruit trees, birdwatching opportunities and lush tropical jungle access. Ype was a fantastic host. He provided us with information on anything from native plants and animals to restaurants, and insight to Costa Rican life. Ype even picked up a cake for my daughter's birthday, on his motorbike! We all had a great experience and would be glad to stay there again. Pura vida!!

Peaceful Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Ype has a really lovely home & beautiful grounds, we walked all the way down to the river and climbed the 100+ steps. I think my favorite part of the stay was looking out the window straight into the canopy of the trees and monkeys. Even without AC we slept peacefully .... great bead & shower. We will definitely book again.

Absolutely loved our stay at Jakodus!!

  • 5 of 5

Jakodus was one of our favorite VRBO rentals in Costa Rica and we stayed in several locations. Ype was incredibly helpful with taking us in and out of Montezuma for our daily excursions and yoga practice. Our fridge was stocked with fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, coconuts, jams, etc daily for breakfast accompanied by fresh espresso or coffee. We were entertained by numerous rescue pups. Our room was beautiful, private, and clean with warm shower. Ype was delighted to share information we could not have read in books or travel blogs about the local area and we appreciated his insight and assistance throughout our precious few days in Montezuma. We will definitely be back and I've already recommended his guesthouse to friends and family! Thanks Ype!!
