Amazing house in the jungle with access to super fun waves, genuine people and relaxed vibe

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 1 week in my friend Christopher's home on top of the hill in Pavones.

Was amazing. Perfect location. Safe, relaxed and super comfortable. WiFi access great and consistent. In the jungle with all the sounds you would want to hear. Howler monkeys, geckos, mackaws, sloths, huge plants and lush foilage. Roads are bumpy but that adds to the overall experience.

For surfing, access to multiple breaks within a 5 to 15 min drive. Walk through the jungle to access excellent left point breaks in 84 degree water. Worth taking the boat across the bay to Matapalo to surf the rights and an opportunity to see humpback whales in their natural environment.

Fantastic trip. Definitely worth it.

Incredible house and location. Exactly as advertised. Wonderful get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of family (that stayed at this incredible property in the Pavones, Costa Rica 6/30-7/9 . Main house holds 10, and we rented the bird house (secondary property about 40 yards down hill from the main house) that holds 3 people.

1. Location. It was incredible to be on top of a roughly 200 foot cliff, overlooking the ocean in the distance, with about 1/3 of a mile of jungle below us running out to the shoreline. We brought a drone and shot video that Gustavo will post online.

2. Animals and birds. While sitting on the deck chairs or hanging out in the pool we watched monkeys, toucans, parakeets, vultures, and even a sloth - all roughly 25 - 75 yards away from the house.

3. House. All of the rooms were great, and if you are the main renter, highly recommend you take the separate bedroom that sits up on the hill over looking the pool. It has the best views of the ocean on the property. You walk up some stairs from the pool to get into it. The house also has good Internet, you can also watch Netflix.

4. Birdhouse. Really nice. One week rental at the birdhouse is roughly the same price as one day rental of the main house, so it is a great value. Downside is no hot water in the birdhouse. So you have to shower in the main house.

5. Staff. Gustavo, Jenny, and Santos are fantastic. Gustavo knows the area incredibly well, is friends with the investor that built the house. He took care of everything: arranging horseback rides, eco jungle walking trip, ATVs, taking our family out surfing, etc. Of course we gave him a good tip when we left (figure $50 a day to be fair to him)). Jenny, who did the house cleaning every day did a great job and we also paid her to do our laundry for us (a nominal fee). Santos is the on property maintenance man, his small house is across from the birdhouse. Everyone in the family loved him - and he is great at killing bugs you don't want to deal with. Tipped Jenny $120 and Santos $100 for the week.

Surfing - Simply incredible. Long breaks, not too heavy. But the beaches are not as pretty - dark sand, rocks -as some spots in Costa Rica.


Driveway - You need a 4 wheel drive. It is VERY steep. Passenger vans are a no go

Bugs - It's the jungle. Spiders, frogs and crabs. They can get in the house. Santos will take care of them.

Groceries - Two small stores in Pavones are expensive. Bakery is great though.

Arrival Meal - We paid $15/pp for a cook to make dinner. Just OK

This was one of our favorite vacations! We planned this trip last minute- with less than a week to set everything up- and Gustavo was hands down the most helpful gracious guest/house manager!

The house is in the most beautiful location. It’s nestled up on a hillside with jungle all around with the most gorgeous view of the ocean. We loved seeing and experiencing all the wildlife right at the house! Pavones is definitely a hidden gem.

Luxury villa with views from every angle

  • 5 of 5

We brought our family of nine here for spring break. I can’t say enough about the beauty of this home. You are truly in the jungle with all the sounds and sights. The sunsets will blow you away as you are perched on top of a hill overlooking the ocean with the infinity pool. The house is amazing. It has plenty of room and sleeping space for a large group or family. It was just an adventure like no other we have been on. This is not a huge town with tourist. It is remote. Gustavo made it easy on instructions of what our options of transportation would work best. We had a driver bring us in and then had our rental car delivered to the house. It was a very long drive but also very scenic and we saw a lot of Costa Rica that way. A 4x4 is a must as the roads are not paved. I also brought a suitcase full of snacks.. they have a few grocery stores in town,, and a few restaurants. It may not be what you are used to but it was part of the adventure. One more thing is it is very safe. Santos is the Care taker of the house. He lives in a separate little casita at the entry point. He is great at taking care of any problems with the home. We loved Santos! I could go on and on but you will have to experience it yourself. Thank you Gustavo for everything!

What an amazing house with top notch service

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from staying here for almost 2 weeks and had an amazing time. The layout of the house is perfect and the location is second to none in the Pavones area. Gustavo set us up with everything we needed and the help at the house was the best. I will definitely be going back soon. Best spot I have been to in Costa Rica. Thank you guys for everything.
