  • Fantastic spot!

    "We recently got home from a trip to Costa Rica, and the Casa de Amigos was by far our favorite place to have stayed. I highly recommend it. The house itself is in a nice location - it's right near Santa Elena, which is a jumping off point for all sorts of activities and adventures. There are also loads of restaurants and a decent super there. The house is beautiful and extremely well maintained. The caretakers are doing a great job - Ken and co., you are very fortunate to have Guillermo and Evelyn for friends and employees. Everything was clean and well stocked. The house was spacious for our family of 6 (we're two adults and four smallish kids). Our kids loved that the caretakers have a little dog. I loved the delicious bakery smells coming from their home - and the cake sample that Evelyn brought over! The kitchen was well appointed and easy to cook in, which for our family saved a lot of money. The cloud forest is amazing - don't pass up an opportunity to hike here! We enjoyed the hanging bridges tour, and the ziplines were definitely a highlight. Heading into the trip, I didn't think we'd get to zip as our girls are all smallish (between 40 and 60 lbs), but Evelyn called and found that we could indeed zip. So fun. And surprisingly un-scary, even for our 4, 6, 9 and 11 year old kids. I only wished we had more time to spend in Monteverde."

  • Amazing experience!

    "We stayed with our 4 kids 4 days and I can tell you it was the best part of our 2 weeks trip through Costa Rica. The location and the house itself are beautiful. We will recommend this house to anybody."

  • Awesome Place - great staff

    "Melvin picked us up at the airport and had cold beers waiting for us. The staff met us at the house and were super attentive and kept the place spotless. Catherine and Emlio were great and made us some really good meals- I would highly recommend getting breakfast made every day. Keep in mind that the property is a little off the beaten path and it takes about 15 to 20 minutes to get to Jaco by cab. However, the place is so big and the property is so nice we spent a lot of time at the house. The place has Internet and you can plug your phone into the speaker system for music out by the pool. Prepare for an insanely steep driveway when you get there. However upon arrival at the top of the mountain where the house is, the views are breathtaking. I would note that the beach if not necessarily in walking distance but rather a short five minute drive down the hill to Playa Hermosa. Keep in mind that the waves at Playa Hermosa are quite sizable, so if you plan on going surfing and you've never done it before I wouldn't recommend starting out here. I tried to go out there for my second time and didn't last very long. If you are going to get liquor to bring to the place I would suggest getting it at the airport, because the stores in Jaco really didn't have much. There's plenty to do in Jaco. Also, don't bother getting the local currency, everyone will take American dollars if you have them. We took a day and Melvin drove us to Manuel Antonio national Park where we went zip lining and also did a wave Runner tour. That was well worth the trip. Angelo's place was really nice and we plan to go back next year. One last thing for anyone planning to come down here. Don't bother packing any longsleeve shirts or any closed toe shoes. All we needed to go out was shorts and T-shirts and flip-flops. It was at least 90° every day and very hot at night as well. Some of the restaurants in Jaco did not even have air-conditioning. So pack light, you certainly don't need to wear a lot of clothing in Costa Rica!"

  • Clean house in a calm area right by the Sierpe river

    "We were two families of total 7 people staying in this house right by the town and river Sierpe that takes you via boat both to the Mangrove and out to the Ocean and Corcovado National Park. For us it was perfect to be close to town and supermarkets and then do day Tours' from here. We could sit by the dock and read a book or watch boats pass by. Very calm, friendly and safe town. Sonia, was the excellent host for us bringing tourguides to the house, showing us around town, handing Numbers and information to us that we asked for. So convienient!"
