  • Definitely 5 Stars! Fabulous House ! Great Vacation!

    "Driving from the San Jose Airport to Los Suenos was well worth the drive! The view from the Carvajal home takes your breath away daily. The house exceeded all of our expectations. The house is very clean and well kept. We felt very safe during our entire stay. It is a gated community and therefore you have to be granted access to get into the community. Maureen the maid is awesome! We just loved her. She was very attentive and she is a great cook. The first day when we arrived she pulled out a schedule for the meal plans. She cooks breakfast and lunch. She made us some very delicious Costa Rican dishes. Even my picky eater would eat all of his food. Some of the food Examples included: Gallo Pinto, Arroz con Pollo, and Cazado. She even gave us a mini cooking lesson because we wanted to know some of her cooking secrets. She is soooooooo sweet. We just loved loved loved Maureen. Donald the grounds keeper is also around to help out. He sets up the outdoor furniture cushions and cleans the outside daily. He is also there to turn the spa on and off for you and with any troubles that may arise. 10 total people stayed comfortably. We also visited the community pool and beach area and everything was nice and clean. There was a grounds person also cleaning the private beach area. Los Suenos isn't too far from Jaco and there is a Market that is not too far as well. We booked excursions to ride ATV's (Jaguars were great), we did the Canopy Ziplining Tour and we loved it, and my kids rafted on the Naranjo River. All excursion companies that we used picked us up from the house. We did go out and explore a lot and we always came back to relax and jump into the pool and look at the view. If we were out exploring during lunch Maureen would leave the prepared meals. We got visitors almost daily coming from the trees that are directly behind the house. Monkeys would come by and we would watch them from the infinity pool. We would leave bananas out so that they could get a little closer. We saw several large iguanas and of course cute little geckos. Great family vacation! One of our best family vacations! Hope you love this home as much as our family did!"

  • Great Stay!! I'll be back!

    "The condo was great! Nicely equipped, clean, roomy, well maintained and most of all comfortable! The grounds and pool were lovely and the staff was excellent. I had a small issue with the room safe, but I contacted the owner via email and got a response within 5 minutes and the issue resolved. There are a few small convenience stores (Sodas) on the same road which was convenient. The walk to the beach wasn't bad, about 10 min. A cab ride to central Jaco was about $2 and the front desk guy (Roy) was helpful in getting us a cab super quickly. I'd definitely stay here again!"

  • Family Compund

    "Great unique compound for a family retreat with some room to spread out. Three structures and a pool right up from the beach. A little on the rustic side but no complaints for the value. Owner and local manager were a pleasure to work with."

  • Beautiful Home, Lovely View

    "This is beautiful home with a lovely view and lovely landscaping. Waking to the sounds of the jungle was amazing and we had monkeys in our trees which thrilled us! The top terrace is a wonderful place to relax. The location is nice if you want to avoid the business of the coast but it is about a 30 minute drive to Santa Teresa and while there are two restaurants nearby, the best places to eat are in Santa Teresa in our opinion. The description and reviews mention the friendly gardener, housekeeper and laundry service but it seems as if they were let go before our arrival. There was a new caretaker, who was a bit of a curmudgeon (but he did prepare us a nice dessert one afternoon), and said the laundry machine would ruin our clothes; once we discovered the laundry machines were actually in a locked room in the house, we were able to do our own laundry. Also beware that the house has no AC and while most of the time the house is pleasant especially if it rains in the evening, on evenings that it did not rain, the bedrooms were a bit warm, stagnant and with the windows open, bugs (and a bat) did come in the room at night making us feel a little uncomfortable. Also some of the things that make this house special and add luxury were not up to par (because of a lack of rain?) such as the infinity pool which was still useable and nice but not filled to infinity level, fountains which were not running and the shower in the master bath which did not work. Seems to us like this home is a bit of a fading beauty. Bill responded promptly with emails but we never met him."
