Guestbook comments from the owner

*Simply Magical. I've been waiting for years to get my immediate family together, somewhere, where everyone can relax, recharge, & explore. Some place that has an adventure for everyone. Jim's Beach House gave us all that. *With the calm of the warm humid Costa Rican air at night, as we got off the plane, our prompt driver, Jorge, took care of the last leg of our travel w drinks & quick stops at the local market to set us up for the night. As we arrived that evening, Max, the manager, met us w the house & pool lights up, the ac & the fans cooling, & the stars & fireflies, inviting us for a quick night swim. All in. *The house was spacious, w large common living, well equipped kitchen & covered out door terrace, fans & BBQ, the 10 of us all quickly disappeared out into our own private rooms w king beds & private baths. *Of course, we all came for our own selfish reasons, my wife & I, school out ,briefly, to steal our grand kids from their parents, who didn't put up much resistance, & take them on an animal adventure. Our boys & their best girls, to surf, sun & escape for a moment, re evaluate all that gets lost in the day to day scramble. *We woke up to lots of sun, bikes, surfboards, animals & plenty of adventures that kept us busy all 2 weeks. The grand kids were on animal watch, & we saw iguanas, fluorescent green lizards, crabs, howler monkeys, frogs, raccoons, ring tailed lemurs, crocodiles, & the most amazing birds circling overhead, frigates, osprey, egrets, vultures, parrots & a few bats diving near the pool at dusk. The ocean was warm & 2 or 3 times a day there lead to all of the rest of the time in the pool. I think the pool was just a bit cooler than the ocean, & a little less sun. 2 weeks later, I'm still getting those smiles that I saw on our 1st day sailing & snorkeling expedition all together, any time I mention it. The kids 1st ocean snorkeling adventure, after at least a week of practice at home, went smoothly. We moved on from surf practice, to snorkeling, animal hunts in the estuary, to many walks & bikes along the way at the local market & restaurants for pizza, fish, shrimp & rice & of course ice cream & popcorn. Food was great, w local markets restaurants, pastry & fish delivery, we never rented a car. Maybe next time. I don't think at the start that everyone thought we had it in us, but I heard it at Jim's Beach House, & I still here it now from all our crew "Best days ever!" Thanks Max, WEEE'LL BE BAACK! Pura vida JP

Beautiful Home - Tropical Paradise - Must Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Jim's Beach House provides a tropical paradise at a very affordable price. The location couldn't be any more ideal- a stones throw from the beach, market and a couple of great restaurants. My group and I spent a ton of time in the large backyard, which comes with a pool and a heavy-duty barbecue. The boarder of the backyard is lined with trees, and if you are lucky you can spot families of monkeys and iguanas! The home has 3 large bedrooms with high ceilings and their own bathrooms + AC units. Each of the rooms has their own locked entry, which makes this a great place to go with another couple or two. The home has a large kitchen with modern appliances and filtered water. There is also a washer and dryer, so pack lightly! :)

The icing on the cake has to be the property manager Max, who lives next door to Jim's beach house. Max is born and raised in Costa Rica, and his outgoing personality makes him the perfect tour guide for someone who is new to the area. Max always made sure the rooms and pool were in pristine condition. Max has surfboards and bikes, and is more than willing to lend them out. But Max isn't the only friendly neighbor- the entire community was very welcoming during our stay. Make sure to visit both of the restaurants- they are a great place to meet tourists and the staff is excellent!

If you are looking to stay at a beautiful home in a very safe community, look no further! I highly recommend Jim's Beach House, and am excited to return soon!

Fantastic Guys Surf Trip!!

  • 4 of 5

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 ( 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: 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 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.

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Best girls trip EVER

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have all been dying to go to Costa Rica for years to experience the surf, the jungle, and all the other wonderful things Costa Rica has to offer. Jims beach house provided us with all that and SO much more!! It was such an amazing property, and was able to comfortably house 10 people with room to spare. The backyard was stunning, and the house itself was gorgeous. The area around this house is absolute paradise, the beach is gorgeous, and Tamarindo is super easily accessed. Max was amazing as well and gave us a ton of helpful advice, was always there whenever we needed anything, and made sure we had transportation for all of our excursions. It was one of the best weeks of my life, as well as my friends! Pura Vida!

The Marriage Saver Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

I called this the "marriage saver vacation" because It is the ideal way for a married couple with busy lives, to get away and get to know each other again. (Not insinuating there was any trouble in my marriage!). My wife and I left our three children with friends and got away alone for the first time in 7 years.

We found ourselves in a picturesque tropical environment, without the throngs of tourists who usually take over the beaches. We spent 5 serene days reading, listening to the sounds of the tropical forest, and lounging by the pool. There were several local restaurants a short walk from the house where we would find ourselves dining alone or one or two other tables the whole night. We enjoyed the delicious fresh Grouper or Mahi, and the authentic Tico breakfasts. Each evening the sunsets were other-worldly on our empty stretch of beach.

Max took great care of us and was genuinely interested in our comfort all week. Pura Vida, Max!

Jim's Beach House is an exotic safe-haven, far from the stressors of our modern world. We'll definitely come back next year, this time with our kids. We want to show them the volcanos, canopy forests and explore the natural beauty of Costa Rica!
