  • beautiful slice of paradise

    "the view! the pool! the jungle! all so wonderful. you will def need a car, and it should certainly have 4wd great bar/wings spot 5 min down the road (on your way up or down the mountain!) best part was sitting on the porch in the morning watching the birds (on either level) or swimming in the pool at dusk.. it was hard to leave such an epic spot."

  • Everything We Could have Imagined.....and MORE!!!!

    "Our stay at the Flying Monkey was incredible. We were two couples traveling together and this villa has everything we could have wanted or needed. The concierge was so helpful setting up excursions and adventures. We enjoyed coming back to the villa at the end of the day to float in the vanishing edge pool while enjoying the incredible sunset. We will definitely be back. Thanks for sharing your beautiful villa with us."

  • 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."
