Family of 14 and not crammed at all. Gary, the owner, was very helpful and booked most of our excursions and was more than happy to do so. Excellent view of the sunset. The sea breeze is very refreshing. Gary even made travel arrangements for our family (and all of our luggage) to get to/from the house to/from the airport because we rented vehicles from him. Great service! Everyone is friendly and accommodating. Store is just a mile or so down the road. The children were in the pool and on the beach when the sun was up and stayed in it until the sun went down. I wish we could stay longer. Beautiful place.
Great place to stay. Went with my family for my 60th birthday. Caught a 250lb blue marlin. Went zip lining , horse back riding and atvs thru mountains. The owner Gary is a great guy. And very knowledgeable of the area. Had four small grand kids with us.
My family and I had an amazing time in Costa Rica. We had a group of 14, 10 adults and 4 kids 5 years and under. The house accommodated us all well. The pool and beach access is where we spent a lot of out time. We booked excursions that Gary recommend and helped us book, all which were great. Having the rental vehicles was a big plus, it allowed us the freedom to explore and see a lot of the Costa Rica coast. The maid was wonderful and was nice to have so we could truly relax on vacation. We were very happy with our stay and thankful for all Gary's help! Highly recommended.
this home in Jaco was perfect, the view was amazing the property with the pool,beach kayaks gave everybody something to do. Gary made sure everything was perfect. Booked our excursions made sure of our transportation. Even drove myself and my sister in law to the store for groceries the first night. I would recommend any one with their family to stay here. Thank you again Gary.
We had a group of 12 stay at the beachfront house in Playa Agujas and it was a wonderful week in paradise! The location is absolutely beautiful with a huge green yard, trees, flowers, and the beach right off the yard. We loved the wakeup call of the ocean and birds in the mornings, and the sunsets can't be beat! We also enjoyed seeing the Costa Rican wildlife (macaws, leaf cutters ants, crabs, iguanas, etc.) in the yard. Although it is in a quiet beach area, it's not far (15-30 minute scenic drives) from Jaco and Tarcoles. There are also two small markets only a couple of km away if you just need a few groceries and don't want to drive into town. We really liked the layout of the house, with 4 bedrooms indoors and 2 off of the front porch. Also with the three bathrooms, we all felt like we had our own space and privacy. One or two of the bedrooms do not have AC, but there are plenty of available fans to help cool down if necessary. We rented 2 vehicles from the owner (who also owns a small car rental business) and we really appreciated the flexibility of coming and going as we pleased. If you have a chance, be sure to have the cook prepare a meal or two for you--she is a wonderful cook and makes a meal that will leave you stuffed and happy! We also enjoyed using the bbq down by the pool. We went to the Coope Tarcoles (fisherman's co-op a few km south of the Tarcoles bridge) and bought fish and shrimp to grill. It seemed a little pricier than we expected, but neat to see one of the local fishing areas and support local fishermen. With all of the attractions nearby, be sure to enjoy the house and its surrounding areas! Walking the beach to both the north and south was really nice. We also went out kayaking one morning and it was an awesome experience out on the water. The owner and his sons helped us get the kayaks down to the beach and then back up when we were done. He also gave us tips of where and how to go for the best experience. We left at about 8am and the water was calm and glassy. There is a beach to the south not too far off that was nice for a swimming break before heading back. As for our host, he was informative and available during the months prior to our trip, and he continued to make himself available when we had questions or if we needed anything during our time there. He is a great landlord and we would not hesitate to rent from him again!
