  • Birthday family trip

    "The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because the house was not quite as well kept as in the pictures. Although the house is still beautiful, it seems in need of a little maintenance, mostly on the outside. I do, however, want to praise and compliment the concierge manager and chef! Both were very welcoming, accommodating with excellent service and manners. Fabrice, the concierge manager, was waiting at the house upon on our arrival and continued to connect with us throughout the week to ensure we had everything we needed and were set for our activities. He even handled a potential problem quickly and calmly. It was so refreshing to know he was just a call away, if we needed anything at all. Camille and Pascal, the chefs, were also wonderful and the food was delicious! They even made a beautiful cake for my daughter's birthday. I highly recommend hiring them for a meal or two while your stay at Wood Box."

  • Will return

    "The house is as advertised. Right on the beach. Clean, user friendly, lots of modern conveniences. We LOVED the howler monkey family that live on the property. Being able to walk the beach to town, restaurants, shops if we wanted and not having to walk the street was fabulous, but walking the street wasn't bad either, just not as beautiful and quiet. The 1 walk each way, every morning was a fantastic way to start your day. The weather was great, the water extremely warm and everyone very friendly and helpful. We wanted to see the sunset off the ocean and not the "bay" so walked to the far west side either at low tide or over the top of the hill. Real easy and way worth the walk. Fun condos, hotels and house on this side. What probably was the best was the overall best location of this house. Never crowded, wonderful to learn to surf and only a 40 minute ride from the airport. I would caution any one coming at Christmas. The crowds were so interesting to mingle with because every nationality was represented but the outdoor disco music that played between Christmas and New Years was some times difficult to handle when it went from 9 AM to 2 AM LOUD, like it was right next door but really was in town. Water carries sound :( In the beginning we thought the howler monkeys were loud but..... It didn't hamper our stay but would have liked it better at night to hear the waves and not the banging of the music. We will go back and will try to stay in this house again. You can be right on the beach (rarity), take a 30 second water taxi ride over to playa grande to see the turtles, 15 minutes to Ziplining with Monkey Jungle, see sunsets without leaving your area, go out to what ever kind of food you can imagine within a 10 minute walk and even walk to the Automarket grocery, if you don't mind a little further walk, or 5 minutes to the little market/store. We were able to drink the water 1/2 way through our stay without issues, we cooked most days and nights and had a great time. Places great to eat Shrimp Hole by 2001 grocery El Blula- Italian , great Pizza Falafal - great greek salad Wicked Jack area where they rent surf boards Nugi's for happy hour We NEVER got in a car or taxi after we were dropped off day one, except to Zipline"

  • Quiet Paradise

    "My wife and I could not have been happier with our choice of accommodations. Gary runs an excellent little slice of heaven right on the beach. His description and videos of the property are exactly what you get. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. If you are looking for tennis courts, a pool, widescreen TVs, and the full spa treatment, this is not the place for you. If however you are looking for la pura vida, this IS the spot. I can definitly see us staying here on a return visit to Costa Rica, I just hope it isn't too far in the future. As for Gary's recommendations on a tour company, trust me, the folks at TPV couldn't have put together a better day of tours. Wonderful way to explore the area. Several nearby restaurants as well, but glad we had a rental car for easy of getting around. Hasta Luego!"

  • What A Wonderful Vacation

    "You couldn't ask for a better location, right on the beach and truly a fantastic view so peaceful. The water is wonderfully warm and clear. We had usage of Greg and Daniella's personal home, it is awesomely appointed throughout. They have an excellent staff who made our stay seamless as we felt right at home. We enjoyed cocktails and conversation with Greg and Daniella who felt more like long time friends than landlords. We plan on returning and look forward in sharing a pitcher of margaritas!"
