  • AWESOME location

    "Great location, central and walking distance to everything. No car required if staying at this location. Very clean and Very secure building with free parking and wi-fi in unit and at the pool. The pool area was great. Property management company should consider having central place to cook BBQ's Beach chairs and an umbrella would have been nice for us to take to the beach however owner does provide a cooler bag which was handy. Unit is so close to beach, that you can stay at pool, go swim at beach and come back to lounge around at pool. Chairs and umbrellas can be rented on the beach. Kitchen was fully furnished. This unit was very spacious. We where 4 adults. I'm a light sleeper and found the A/C in bedrooms noisy but you also have a ceiling fans which was a bonus. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone travelling to Jaco."

  • A Spring Break to Remember - Where the Jungle meets the Sea

    "My 12 year old son and I and another family of 4 (2 boys aged 12 and 9) had the most wonderful vacation at this house this past Spring Break. The house is spacious and comfortable, perched high above a wild stretch of Pacific coast. It feels luxurious in an authentic Costa Rican way. It's hard to know where to start. We packed a lot into each day and yet felt totally relaxed and rested when we got home. We hired a wonderful local guide, Nito, to hike both on and near this property and in Corcovado. He made our trip. Not only did we see a lot more than we would have without him, he had a vast knowledge of the ecology of the area and the kids and adults learned a lot. He has also perfected the art of taking a photo with an iPhone 6 through the lens of his swarovsky telescope. I have great photos! Things I recommend: Get up before dawn to catch sunrise and animals on the beach; take a glass of wine down to the beach at sunset (this is NOT a swimming beach. It is beautiful and wild and very powerful so always watch the kids); ask Grace to cook local dishes; ask Juan to take you on a night hike (we had an encounter with a Fer-de-lance that the kids will remember for life ;=); hire a local fisherman to take you out on Golfo Dulce to fish and get up close and personal with dolphins, go to the nearby eco lodges and enjoy cocktails and wifi once or twice, go zip lining through the forest; visit a coco plantation; sleep with the doors and windows wide open to hear the ocean and the wildlife; if you have kids or even if you don't, keep a list each day of all the birds and animals that you see and if you can't identify something look it up in the books at the house each evening. The boys really got into to doing this and argued over who was going to write them all in the owner's book to record wildlife sightings. I could go on and on. This was the perfect vacation. Family, friends, adventure, comfort, amazing wildlife and unspoiled beauty. The owner of this property was extremely helpful and his tips and advice contributed greatly to the success of our vacation. The Osa Peninsular is a very special place. My son and I can't wait to go back."

  • awesome villa

    "Just returned with three other couples for a week stay in Villa Encantada. Just a beautiful property to accommodate us. Location,location and on the beach. Not many villas of this caliber on the beach which is absolutely beautiful. Words cannot describe the villa and layout. The pictures just do not do justice. It is one of of most unusual properties our group has stayed in. We absolutely loved it and the owner is just so pleasant to work with. Highly recommend if traveling to Jaco...Forget hotels!! Meyline and Johnathan took care of us in very way.We tried to bring home with us!! She is a amazing cook. Please email if you have any questions and will glad to discuss on phone. You want be disappointed"

  • Super fun

    "Gorgeous grounds, away from everything, and so much character. We loved it here. Also, having our first breakfast groceries taken care of, umbrellas, a bag of charcoal, and a full box of dry wood for the fire pit were very nice touches. Don't miss Nauyaca waterfalls nearby! They're truly truly amazing. Before booking , you MUST know this is not going to be a luxury resort experience. There are no glass windows, only wooden panels that completely open, you pretty much live outside, in the heart of the jungle. One of the casitas has no walls at all, you're sleeping outside, with a roof over your head. It's very fun and romantic, but just to give you a sense of what it;s like, the swimming pool 8 feet away is the night home of 6 to 10 green frogs, 1 huge toad, and the cutest little baby boa (about 18 inches long). You can find them in and around the pool most nights. We found the boa chilling on the outdoor shower floor one evening. So if this doesn't sound like a fun adventure to you, you will not be happy here. A couple little things you might also know beforehand: - The beach is about 25 - 30 minutes from the house by car. - You MUST have a 4x4 to get through the 2km of rocky paths of the main road. - Wifi is slow. It works, but if you need to get work done, I found my cell phone 3G connection to be faster, so plan accordingly. - It's very difficult to get anything to dry because of humidity. One towel per guest was provided, but I wish we had a few more. - We discovered that what looked like a bookshelf between 2 doors in the main house was actually a ladder to a loft with 2 twin mattresses. Maria hadn't show that to us, or maybe I just misunderstood since I don't speak Spanish, but this was very useful since we only had one couple in our group of 6. I would definitely come back. Amazing jungle home."
