The house is amazing! there is so much room and it is very comfortable, it has everything you need! We loved our stay here, the rooms are big and comfortable and the neighborhood is awesome. The pool is nice and big so even with a lot of people doesn't feel crowded! The host is super nice and she responds almost immediately to any concerns. There is no loud music allowed after 10pm so just be aware that is def not a crazy party neighborhood! (we kept the music just for ourselves and there was no problem though).
Exactly as advertised, and a little more!
I recently stayed at the house with a group of friends and it was spacious enough for nine of us to be there comfortably. The location is perfect if you are looking to stay away from the noise, yet still have enough amenities close by. Although I don't believe crime is big in near by Jaco, this beautiful private community felt safe at all times. The pool is perfect and the swim up bar has some amazing food and drinks. Plus you can't go wrong with the sunsets from the beach, only a couple minutes walk away. Liz was very easy to deal with, and always came back to me within a timely manner. Should I be in a similar position next time I travel to the region, I'll definitely come back!
The house was as pictured.
The house is conveniently located to the beach, a pool, a small market, and an outdoor shower to remove sand from the beach. The house had all the amenities we needed. It had good sound insulation and we couldn’t hear others when in the bedroom. When the AC broke a person was sent and fixed it immediately. Oh
Great stay beautiful house!
Had a great time staying at Liz’s VRBO. The house was beautiful and very spacious. Was in a nice gated community and very safe with Gards at the gate at all times. Beach was just steps away and the house was close to anything you would need. Really enjoyed our stay!
My family and I came to Costa Rica from New Jersey to enjoy a bit warmer weather since our December had been colder than usual. We envisioned long, warm days lounging and swimming at the pool enjoying the beautiful surroundings. This home is truly lovely, well-kept, clean and nice as the pictures displayed at VRBO.
If I were rating this review solely on the house, it would be 5 stars. However, there two areas of the home that I believe that the owner may want to consider improvement on – 1) the master bathroom shower drainage system needs replacement/repair and 2) the living room large black sofa is in poor condition.
Matt, the caretaker, was a great help for anything we needed. He was attentive and addressed our concerns timely. He made suggestions regarding restaurants, entertainment, and nightlife in Jaco which is 10 minutes driving by car from the house.
Playa Hermosa is super cool little town with amazing beaches, views, waves, restaurants and bars.
We rented a car so the trips to and from Jaco for dinner, nightlife, afternoon surfing contests, etc were a blast.
We visited Manuel Antonio beach (1.5 hrs drive from the house), went zip lining and rode ATV, which we loved. We also visited Arenal volcano, which was a long trip, but worth it. We loved the volcano and surrounding areas. Next time we will check out the hot spring.
All in All it was one of the nicest places we have stayed in Costa Rica...This was our 2nd time in the country, So a big thanks to Liz and Matt for allowing us to stay in your home and taking good care of us.
