    "I would love to own this home. The location is awesome, perched on a mountain overlooking a beautiful river valley that flows into the ocean. The sunsets were to die for. The home was very comfortable and clean. The community was convenient to everything, but very private and peaceful. Very, very nice"

  • An exceptional property with an incredible view.

    "Oh my. Where to begin? What an absolute pleasure it was to spend 9 glorious days in La Joyita! The House: Incredibly beautiful. High vaulted ceilings throughout. Big picture windows and doors that allowed the ocean breezes to flow through. The house was spotless and obviously well take care of. It is equipped with every amenity one could dream of. The kitchen has every small appliance you could wish for (and then some!). The living room and bedroom both have TVs complete with the Roku system, which allowed us to curl up and watch Netflix movies on the quieter nights. The Amazon Home system was a treat (I totally want one now), allowing us to stream our music via Bluetooth through the speakers. Books and reference guides paired with binoculars are a dream for any bird watchers. The bedroom has a good mattress for sleeping and bench for those who want to chill with a book. The bathroom is beautiful, complete with hot shower and good water pressure. Everything was just pristine. The Property: Well maintained, beautiful landscaping and a wicked view. The pool is a great option for cooling off on those hot hot days. I travel to the area at least twice a year and the view from La Joyita are for those who enjoy sweeping canopy and ocean views. The photos do it no justice. And the sunsets every night are nothing short of spectacular!!!! Tons of birds, including toucans and hummingbirds can be seen throughout the day. The grumbles and howls of Howler Monkeys were heard several times daily (and nightly) and bullfrogs, bats and fireflies filled the evenings & nights. You definitely need a 4x4 to get to the house as the final climb to it is pretty steep and the whole road up is unpaved (like all side roads there). The property manager Adam (who lives down the road) was exceptional. He made sure we were well taken care of and made recommendations and reservations for us. We also fell in love with his pup Oso who would come visit us almost daily. RECOS: For Dinner: Exotica, Sabor Espanol, Ranchos Remos. For Lunch: Roadshack, La Fogata, PorQueNo The sunset horseback riding tour at Rancho Le Merced is amazing. Surf lessons down in Playa Dominical are huge amounts of fun. I would 100% recommend La Joyita to any couple (or solo) traveling to the area. What a remarkable time we had in this fantastic house and I am so grateful that Gary shared it with us."

  • Wonderful Location. Great experience.

    "The pictures are truthful...the view is amazing and the location couldn't have been better. My group had a great escape as we relaxed by he pool, watched iguanas walk around the property, and trekked down to the beach. We had 20 people and the house was very comfortable. So many separate spaces to hang out, read, nap and eat. The grounds and house keepers were kind and welcoming as well. I will warn you - the hill to and from the beach is quite steep. Come prepared for a work out if you plan to walk. Bus transportation cant make it all the way to the house, a car, truck or micro bus would help. The store is about 1 mile away. You could walk, but not with a large amount of food or supplies. The home itself was in good shape. It was very clean but could use a little updating and repair here and there. For a view of the entire coastline take the short walk out the gate entrance and up the remainder of the hill. Fantastic! The restaurant/bar on the beach below the house wasn't always open, but they were always willing to sell water, beer, coke and even pizza during the day. Overall,we had a very enjoyable time here. And for 20 people, the price was worth it."
