A delightful stay
Mirielle was a wonderful hostess & always available to help out when needed. Very warm & welcoming !!
Apartment was directly across the street from a beautiful beach as well as some good restaurants on beach.
Scarlet macaws were flying directly overhead several times a day as well as other interesting birdlife
The pool was quite nice & certainly welcome in the afternoon after a hot day especially since it was in the shade.
Apartment comfortable but somewhat warm . The air conditioner was in the kitchen so it hardly reached the bedroom nor front porch. so we never used it
Overall a great stay.
Thank you Mierielle !! Hope to see you again !!
I'm thinking to move the A/C tothe bedroom !!!
Hope to see you again ...
I had concerns about staying outside of town by myself. I was only seven kilometers from town but might as well have been a million miles away. The backyard is a beautiful jungle so you go to sleep and wake up with the jungle sounds of birds and crickets. This vacation taught me a very important lesson on how to do absolutely nothing and enjoy it!! I got up early, went to be early, read, napped, walked the beach (just across the road), did yin yoga in my room. I wouldn't let myself turn on the TV until dark and would then watch a movie or two. It was exactly what I needed. Mireya (the owner) is lovely and speaks fluent French, Spanish and English. She and Dennis (the manager) would make sure and let me know when they were going to town so I could go in for shopping or dinner. It's only a $10 taxi ride back, so it was perfect as I could come back when I wanted. I loved my time at Pacific Jungle Apartments and will go back to see the new pool that Mireya's is putting in this fall. There is also a couple of very good restaurants across the road, make sure you try them. Villa Hermosa and Bowie's Point are both excellent!!
Just what I was hoping for.....and more!
I was seeking a place to spent several weeks of quiet, meditative time. A place to read, write, think and walk the beach. I could not have found a better place! Everything I needed was within reach. And the owner is lovely! I hope to be back again before too long!
best location and rental!
we loved our first studio so much, we upgraded to this bigger rental because family and friends were visiting us during our 3 month stay! Couldn't ask for a better place. Perfect location for surf and nature hikes. Beach, stores and restaurants just footsteps away. the jungle and mountains are our backyard. Wildlife everyday. Best landlord and property manager we have had. Anything needed, they were there to help! I encourage this place for future vacations! Pura vida!
Thanks a lot for this beautiful and interesting coment on my oceanfront apt.
Sure it will help our future renters !!!
It's always lots of fun to have nice renters enjoying the place ...
Hope we can meet again soon and ... Pura vida !!!
Absolutely Delightful :)
An American review LOL :)
My wife and I spent a week here surfing and hiking. This has been one of our best trips. We have been to many surf destinations and this is a great spot. Playa Hermosa is right across the street. Jaco beach is a short ride down the road and Boca Barranca (second longest left in the world) is less than an hour away. Hiking is spectacular. Lush and full of wildlife. We even had breakfast with a monkey at the apartment.
The rental is wonderfully situated across the street from a couple of great restaurants. Bowie's Point is our fav. (Go say hi to Roger and his wife) super nice owners.
We loved the rental. Very clean with all the amenities. The a/c was a blessing. Plenty of room to spread out. Dennis was very helpful with all of our needs. Great guy! We will be back for the surf and the "Pura Vida."
We can't thank you enough Mireya. We loved our stay!
Le sommet est encore loin
Notre loueuse sympathique au demeurant manque de professionnalisme, sa présence permanente devient vite pesante, elle ne connait pas les différentes facilités qui peuvent être utiles à ses locataires.
Le basique de la location ne correspond pas aux critères actuels, pas de four, pas de lave-linge, vaisselle minima. Une majoration de journalière rend l'utilisation du climatiseur prohibitive.
Cette location située à 6 km de la ville de Jaco impose un moyen de transport (scooter ou voiture), un taxi peut dépanner. De plus les transports en commun manquent de fiabilité, on peut attendre le bus pendant deux heures.
En conséquence je ne recommande pas cette location.
Difficile de s'extirper de l'emprise de ce monsieur dès qu'il vous a aperçu ; arapède de mon pays.
Mon professionnalisme ne peut être remis en cause et cette mention est bien galvaudée.
Le four était en option, à disposition sur demande.
Quant au lave-linge, je n'ai jamais mentionné qu'il y en avait un.
L'air conditionné facultatif et pas nécessaire est une option sur laquelle je ne gagne rien.
Il m'est arrivé d'attendre le bus pendant 1H. Heureusement, je n'allais pas au travail ... J'espère que Jean-Louis n'est pas arrivé en retard au supermarché !!!
