About Jay Gohlmann

We are a family with four small children living in downtown Boston.

Jay Gohlmann purchased this villa in 2007

Why Jay Gohlmann chose Guanacaste

Costa Rica is the ideal family vacation. The weather is ALWAYS tropical. Lots of sunshine. Too many activities to count.

What makes this villa unique

Costa Rica is not just a beach vacation. Activities off the beach are just as popular: horseback riding, ziplines, hot springs, rain forest, white water rafting, river cruise, golf, etc.

Cloud Nine Indeed!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 9 spent 10 days at this beautiful home celebrating the holidays and a family birthday. We rented the house and the one-bedroom apartment. The home is even more beautiful than the pictures here. Our group ranged in age from 23 - 68. It truly has everything you will need to enjoy a spectacular holiday in Costa Rica-- right down to fluffy beach towels. We never made it to Roberto's for the famous sunset drinks because the view of the bay from the house deck was so magnificent. But Alejandra, our housekeeper really makes this special - she came everyday, sat down with me when we arrived and we make menus for the meals we wanted to eat "in," and a shopping list. She did laundry and prepared the most delicious meals!! She shopped for any food items we wanted, whether it was fresh papaya, or fresh seafood. She even recommended great local restaurants when we wanted to eat out. The house is in a gated community just steps from the beach. We did not rent a car but used Tico Tours for several outings to Rincon Volcano and El Viejo jungle river tour. Everyone at the property management company was so friendly and helpful. They even arranged all of our airport transfers. We can't wait to return and I can't recommend this home highly enough. Fantastic. One tip - if you have someone with disabilities (elderly or difficulty walking) the house sits at the top of a steep drive, you might want to rent a car or use the option of renting a golf cart. We all enjoyed the walk, but it could be hard for some folks.

We were part of a large group who rented the home. The home is lovely. Wendy was so accomodating. She is an excellent cook and made us feel welcome. Her English was still a bit weak, but she and the kids used their phones to translate! The house was in a gated community and we felt safe at all times. The pool was great and at night the jacuzzi felt wonderful! Highly recommend this home. The owner was easy to work with and we had no issues.

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 7 people that stayed at this lovely home. We rented the house and the 1 bedroom apartment, as well. Wendy, the house keeper, made us different meals. She was a joy to have around. Her English is a little weak, but we managed to translate using our phones. Try her empanadas. They were outstanding. Some of our group caught Bonito, and Wendy made sashimi with the fish. Whatever you want her to cook, she will give you a list of ingredients to get at the store, and she will make it. The view from the house is amazing. The color of the sky after sunset is magnificent. The stars at night are massive. We had a great vacation. The location of the house was perfect. 15 minute drive to Playa de Coco, and 30 minutes to the airport. I highly recommend this home. Jay, the owner, is very accommodating, and he was good about answering our questions. You will definitely need a car to get around. A couple of suggestions for Jay: it would be helpful to have a list of English speaking stations for the television and the shower faucet in the master bathroom needs repaired, as it leaked. Come stay at this house. You will not regret it.

Christmas present

  • 5 of 5

The house and location was great. Plenty of room for our family to hang out, whether by the pool, the great room area or some private time in their bedrooms.

The housekeeper/maid was very friendly, accommodating and a great cook. We had her cook traditional Costa Rica meals 3 of the afternoons that we were there. Awesome.

Jay was very prompt at answering his phone or calling back if we had a question or a problem.

All in all it was a great week and I would recommend it to all who want a private laid back vacation.

Excellent. Could Not Have Been A Better Experience.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this fantastic house with a group of friends. There were 7 in our group but the house could have easily accommodated more. From the moment we met the hosts, we knew we would be well taken care of. They were helpful and accommodating.

Playa Hermosa is a wonderful location. It feels very safe and welcoming, even at night. The house itself is in a beautiful gated community with guards who add to the feeling of security. It is walking distance to the beach and to many shops, restaurants, etc. You don't need a car, but I would recommend it. Especially if you want to go to Coco Beach which is a much more lively area with bars, a casino and nightlife.

The house is perfect. It is situated on a hill and overlooks the ocean. Every morning, we sat out by the pool and listened to the exotic birds and monkeys who filled the surrounding trees. You do not want to miss the sunset, from the deck or the patio. The entire sky fills with color as the sun slowly sinks into the ocean.

The pool area is amazing. Plenty of comfortable loungers and patio furniture and also includes a BBQ grill. There are plenty of towels provided, we never ran low on towels. The hot tub is a perfect temperature for the climate. Just warm enough to be relaxing but not too hot. The pool is clean and refreshing. We ended up staying home far more often than we expected, just because the house and the pool area was so comfortable and relaxing.

Wendy was our housekeeper and she was a pleasure. She cooked breakfast every morning and it was delicious. We brought groceries from the local market and she made lunch that was one of our favorite meals in Costa Rica. She made our stay unforgettable. We appreciated so much that she did our laundry so that we didn't have to come home with a suitcase full of dirty clothing. Most VRBO homes do not include a maid and a cook so this is definitely a reason to book this property.

The house is equipped with a full kitchen that includes everything you could want. The outlets are US standard so all of our electronics worked perfectly without needing an adaptor. There is WiFi provided and also an office with a desktop computer. There is a phone which utilizes Magic Jack so you can call anywhere in the world for free. The house has a library full of books and a few games. It is clean and spacious and has nice furnishings.

Do not hesitate to book this property. It was better than a hotel in every way. We will come back.
