  • Amazing property! Breathtaking views!

    "The pictures cannot do this place justice - we arrived right around the time of sunset, and the view from the amazing outdoor living space was breathtaking. Spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean! You need 4WD to get there, but totally worth it! The layout of the house is great, just as described. Each bedroom has it's own adjoining bathroom, and the outdoor living space is great. There is also a "den" type room near the bedroom in the rear of the house. We didn't spend much time there, but could easily be used as additional sleeping space for larger families. House is amazingly clean, and had a cleaning service come in mid-week to change linens and general cleaning. Kitchen is very well equipped, with all the utensils and equipment you could need. House also has a washer /dryer. Adam was so helpful with everything - he sent us information before our arrival about activities in the area, and we definitely took him up on it. He had everything all confirmed and planned out when we got there, with a day by day itinerary. We did surf lessons in Dominical with Sunset Surf (highly recommend!), horseback riding to Nauyaca Falls (highly recommend!), a canopy tour at Osa Mountain (highly recommend!), and the day trip via boat to Corcovado National Park (highly recommend! - are you sensing a theme here?). On the National Park tour we saw dolphins on the boat ride there. Once we got there, we did hikes where we saw howler and spider monkeys, coati, a sloth, crocodiles (both in the ocean and in the river), and about a dozen scarlet macaws! We also visited the beach in Dominical and a day at Uvita exploring the Whale's Tail. We would come back to the house each day after doing these great activities and were treated to the most amazing sunsets from the infinity pool. Truly beautiful to watch each night. We also frequented many of the local restaurants - some of our favorites were Cafe de Ensuenos (great for breakfast and lunch and the most amazing smoothies), El Pescado Loco (fish tacos and fish & chips), and Fuego (new Brewery and Restaurant - worth it just to see the cool building) in Dominical. Uvita is just a bit further down the road, but there we enjoyed La Fogata for pizza and Sibu for craft beer, coffee, and wonderful desserts. Even further, but worth it for some great restaurants, is Ojochal - where we had an amazing dinner at Exotica, and a nice lunch with a view at Bamboo. Highly recommend this property - we will be back!"

  • Amazing property and service.

    "The property was perfect. Spacious homes and rooms and the pools were great. We had a group of 12 and used WOW catering to serve all of our meals. The property was spectacular and the concierge and chefs took care of everything!!!"

  • Fantastic! A Perfect House And a Perfect Location!

    "Where do I start...? Easy to book with owner, they actually called me soon after my inquiry about the house since I had a lot of questions. It was so much easier to talk to someone directly rather that keep writing emails. The house is gorgeous! The location is one of the best on the bay! It is perfect for a large group. We travelled with another family, and had 6 kids ranging from 11-17 with us. The layout of the house provides privacy for everyone, and the master bedrooms are located away from the common areas so they are very quiet. The master beds are SUPER comfy! Loved the HUGE bathroom and safe. Kitchen is stocked with enough dishes and gadgets to make meal preparation a breeze! The pool was used daily, and there is plenty of patio furniture for naps or just relaxing and reading a good book. Surfing is fantastic right in front of the house (we stayed there in late November), and we saw several of the locals surfing there daily, including Ugo, who was our 'concierge' while in Costa Rica. If we needed dinner recommendations, tour recommendations, a meal prepared at the house, Ugo was always there to help. We rented ATVs for the duration of our stay, and I highly recommend it, although it's not necessary if you don't mind walking to restaurants etc. There is a grocery store a two minute walk from the house, very handy. Kids loved going there if we needed something. Several other stores are located a little further away, and the ATVs came handy for that as well. We flew into San Jose, and chartered a private plane with Carmon Air to take us to Tambor. This was one of the highlights of the trips for the kids. The cost for the 10 of us was only a tad more than a regular scheduled flights. Very convenient and easy way to get to Tambor which is the closest airport to Santa Teresa. We are all hoping to go back to this gorgeous house sometime soon."

  • Fabulous location, wonderful condo owner

    "Hoping to stay here again soon. The condo is so pleasant and it comes with a wonderful benefit. An owner who lives near who wants his guests to really enjoy the Jaco experience. We didn't have a rental car so he took me with him one day when he went to the grocery store and another day when he went to the local farmers market. He helped me at the market since I speak almost no Spanish. He has great beach/pool towels. (I find it so frustrating to rent a beach condo that is supposed to include towels, but then there are no real beach towels.) The only negative is that there is some HVAC noise from the building off to the side of the balcony, but most hours the waves right in front were even louder. (It did preclude opening the window in the master bedroom, but since running the air conditioner 90% of the time, really didn't matter.) The couch in the condo is so comfortable and is perfectly situated to enjoy the ocean view. The location is wonderful. Beautiful unpopulated beach immediately to the right of the condo complex. Enjoyable, easy walk into town."
