Excellent Location and Wonderful Host!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Jonathan's property for two weeks with a group that included 5 young kids. We really adored the location -- right across the road from an incredible beach, easy walking into town, yet still quiet and peaceful day and night. Jonathan was a very attentive host, and was especially kind to our energetic and curious children. He spent a lot of time cleaning the pool, tidying up the property, responding to our requests and answering a million questions about life in Costa Rica from our kids. He also organized professional cleaners to come in every few days without any extra charge. We will miss enjoying fresh bananas grown right outside our door, falling asleep to the sound of the ocean and waking up to tropical song birds.

Playa Spa in Lush Jungle Garden

  • 5 of 5

My first swim in the gentle water of Golfo Dulce was just a few steps from this spa garden estate. I am impressed by the privacy and the comfort of this retreat. I awoke to the chirping of the myriad of birds, luxuriated in the waterfall pool and on the really hot days, there was the cold plunge 'igloo.' Just a short stroll into the pueblito of Pavones with a couple of good restaurants and 'Supermercado.' For surfers, you can grab your board and walk to The Point.

A beautiful place to relax

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I went to Pavones a few years ago and stayed a handful of nights at Johhny's place.

We really couldn't have stayed at a better home. It was close to everything, especially the shore, but we were secluded enough to feel almost alone in the jungle and enjoyed our privacy. It really let us enjoy the best things this beautiful town has to offer.

Some of my friends have stayed at Johhny's, too - and they're still talking about it years later!

A corner of paradise

  • 5 of 5

The place is ideally located, a few steps away from the beach, and beautifully arranged: Jonnie takes care of his luxurious garden everyday, it smells like fruit and ylang-ylang at sunset, a perfect time to enjoy his Yoga open hut or his sauna, or his fresh pool. Jonnie is a smiling, open-minded, peaceful host. He has been living in Pavones for more than a decade and will provide you with the best contacts and tips.

Jonnies place is amazing!! The place is located at the end of Pavones point, the world class surf break. Plenty of space behind the walled compound and the cold plunge pool is perfect after yoga on those hot and muggy days!

The sounds of the jungle are all around at night with the constant backdrop of the pounding surf nearby as well!

Maybe you can get some of that amazing organic produce that Jonnie grows up on his farm!!

All in all an amazing retreat and I would highly recommend it to any travelers!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Drewby. For those dog days of summer, the best approach is to string up a hammock on the beach, under the palm trees and enjoy the siesta breeze.
