                                                      Felix M.

                                                      Could not have asked for a better place to stay during our time in playa grande. Not only is Jim's Beach house an absolutely beautiful house, it is also less than a 5 minute walk to the beach! We enjoyed his pool everyday, there is a BBQ there, and the very friendly neighbor Max checked us on every day to make sure we were comfortable and all taken care of. Better yet, we didn't have the car but the beach house is centrally located to several other hotel/bars so we didn't even need one. I definitely plan on returning to Costa Rica at some point and won't think twice about where I'm staying. Thanks again Jim for making our Costa experience that much more enjoyable!

                                                      Secluded Beach Paradise House

                                                      My friends and had the privilege of staying at Jims Beach House during our trip to Costa Rica this month. We traveled from Liberia to Arenal to Tamarindo and nothing compared to the 4 days at this place. We were greeted by their personal driver with signs waiting for us at Liberia Airport. He drove us down to the house, while acting as a tour guide of the country and providing us with the best "local tips". As soon as we arrived into the gated community and at the house, we were greeted with the biggest smile from Max the property manager. He gave us the full tour including our private beach access pathway. The house is absolutely perfect for large groups with 3 bedrooms (each sound proof - thus allowing those who wished to go to bed early to be at peace and quiet in their respective rooms). Each room had a king-sized bed and additional bed alongside their private full bathrooms with the most spacious shower you will ever see. The kitchen had a large island set up, with all kitchen amenities you could ask for, along with a washer/dryer and full sized refrigerator nearby. The outside veranda led right to the pool which was followed by trees with had monkeys flying from tree to tree and birds floating around at dusk.

                                                      The playa grande estates had their own hotels and restaurants (each hosting their own "night of the week" where one restaurant would have a "tapas tuesday" and the next would have a "wine wednesday" with live performances so that you could fully immerse yourself into the Costa Rican culture). The boats (located at Hotel Bula Bula - a 30 second walk to the left of the house) offered boats that take you along the estuary and into the nearby town of Tamarindo. This allowed you to have the safety of Playa Grande's gated community, while being only a short boat ride away from the major city attraction of Tamarindo.

                                                      I cannot express how much of a blast we each had and with the cheap price offered (compared to our other rental destinations in Costa Rica), will definitely be going back again soon!

                                                      Awesome house in the perfect setting!

                                                      Jeff & Tara M.Toronto

                                                      We stayed for 9 days as 2 couples and were blown away! The house is bright, spacious, surrounded by wildlife & has all the amenities - pool, wifi, A/C, safes. From the moment we booked Jim's son Willy kept in regular contact with us up until our arrival, and Jim even called us during our stay to check in and offer recommations of things to do! Max took great care of us during our stay!

                                                      Bedrooms: This property has 3 master suites which can accommodate 3 couples as each has its own full bath & privacy (2 of the rooms have entrances separate from the main house). The true "master" is the entire second floor and it's HUGE with a large balcony. The 2 downstairs bedrooms have sliding doors and their own small patios.

                                                      Kitchen: Big and has all the necessities - blender, coffee maker, fridge, stove, microwave, cutlery/dishes/pots/pans. There is a washer and dryer off the kitchen.

                                                      Backyard/Pool: The pool was a good size and kept at a nice temperature. Max came in regularly to clean and maintain it (check PH levels, etc). It provides a nice ambiance at night too with the pool lights. The backyard is huge and backs onto jungle so it is very private. There is alot of wildlife - we saw a family of monkeys in the trees above, a large variety of birds and lizards. The bugs were not an issue, but it doesnt hurt to bring bug spray just in case. There is an outdoor BBQ too!

                                                      The beach: The beach is a 3 minute walk from the front door.

                                                      Area: There are afew restaurants and small grocery store (Wil-Mart) within walking distance which has a good assortment of staples (fruit, veggies, eggs, milk, condiments, personal hygiene items, sunscreen).

                                                      Although there is some wear and tear on the property (which can be expected in a rental) it is nothing that would make us think twice about recommending Jim's beach house or staying there again! Amazing trip!

                                                      Fantastic Guys Surf Trip!!

                                                      jay f.

                                                      I just returned from a week long stay at Jim's Beach House. It was a guys surf trip and let me begin by saying it was a FANTASTIC week of surfing and relaxing. The house is safe and secure like people have mentioned. Willie is an excellent host and helped tremendously with our stay and is easy to contact. This is not our first time in CR nor is it our first time in Palm Beach Estates. The surf break at Entry 25 was good! The accommodations at the house were on point and as most people have mentioned, Max is easily contacted. For our trip we chose to rent surfboards from Frijoles Loco (http://frijoleslocos.com) and I can't say enough good things about those guys. We must have tried at least 10-12 boards during our stay among the six of us. Corynne, the owner also hooked us up with a service that provided a cook (contact Jeanette at the following email: vacations@frijoleslocos.com). I recommend asking for Deyanira, she was outstanding! The only things that could have made Jim's a 5 star (although for a guys trip it was a 5 for the price) would be to replace the living room couches (they were essentially "unsittable"), spray for ants (they were numerous and annoying but didn't bite anyone), and enable hot water for the upstairs bathroom shower (it was hot in the other two showers and didn't bother us...it just would have been perfect). What I loved about the house was the location, the kitchen, the washing machine, the setting, the pool was nice, and we even used the outdoor gas grill! The terrain getting to the house was somewhat atypical for the time of year in that the roads getting to Palm Beach Estates were really bad...four wheel SUV recommended for more than 4 people. We didn't mind at all but I can see where a family might have issues. Overall, I highly recommend Jim's Beach House and would be happy to stay again. Especially another guys surf trip!! Thanks Willie and thanks Max!

                                                      Paradise found. Seriously. This is it.

                                                      John A.

                                                      My family and I just returned from our first trip to CR and Jim's Beach House was a shining star. Tucked in a safe, private community surrounded by jungle this house was perfect. Pool, BBQ, A/C, WiFi. The house, and guests, are graciously cared for by Max who has a great Pura Vida aura about him. We looked to him for tours, restaurant advice. He has the hook up in the area (including Tamarindo) which was well appreciated. Master Bedroom is large and was perfect for our 2 toddler daughters. Each morning we drank great CR coffee and checked out the resident iguana and birds in the mango tree. The walk to the beach is an easy 3 minute walk to Entry 25 at Playa Grande. Water was like a bathtub at 85 degrees. Low tide in the mornings were great for the kids with a wide beach and thousands of shells and crabs to check out. River tours, zip-lining, horse-back riding, ATVs, and gorgeous beaches are all easily accessible. Willie was a great host throughout the process. Informative, responsive, and stoked for you to have a great time. Couldn't be happier with the stay and the way this place is loved by the owner and staff. We'll be back. Pura Vida!

                                                      Perfect place to chill out

                                                      Eric B.

                                                      Just a wonderful house in a wonderful location. Near enough to Tamarindo while being completely away from it all. Clean and in good repair Great pool. Great staff, especially Max. Short walk to a great uncrowded beach. Several laid back dining places nearby, or stock up and use the terrific kitchen.

                                                      Just a couple of things to point out. The bedrooms are all masters, all have master baths, but only one BR is within the main portion of the house. The other two have separate outside entrances (one is upstairs of the main house, but its entrance is upstairs outside; the other is detached), so you have to pay a bit of attention to locking up when going out. Nonetheless, the area felt completely safe to us. Second, there is no TV, something we didn't realize when booking, but which was fine with us. There is adequate internet/wifi throughout the property for audio streaming/email/etc. but not adequate for video streaming.
