Fantastic home in the Jungle!

  • 5 of 5
Let me start by saying Gerald was such a pleasure to deal with and is a wealth of information! He provided us with many tips on beaches, restaurants and activities. We really appreciated how thorough he was and left no details out.

He had a fantastic couple check us in and they even checked on us which made us feel like we had our own Costa Rican family! Thank you Peggy and Greg.

The house is really lovely. The location was fantastic and we were dazzled nightly with a troop of monkeys who entertained us. No need for TV here. There is so much nature surrounding you that the sights and sounds are all you need. We really enjoyed our evening walks surrounding the property.

The beaches nearby are secluded and gorgeous. We made our way down to Manuel Antonio and enjoyed both the beach and the park. Fantastic. We also did an ATV tour as well as a zip line tour out of Jaco and both were awesome!

We would return to this property in a heartbeat. It was a great adventure and I cant say enough about Gerald, the owner.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your complimentary review. It is hard to keep everything on track from far away (Vermont- Costa Rica) but happy guests make it all worthwhile. We are not quite in the jungle yet. This will only happen if the project's maintenance crew let tthings get out of control!! So far so good and we all enjoy the privacy of me casa.

Great place to stay in Esterillos

  • 4 of 5
We had 3 adults and 3 kids in our group and this house was a great, comfortable place to stay. My kids loved the bunk bed room. The house is located about 10 to 15 minutes away from a very relaxed, quiet beach and there are plenty of little markets to stock up on essentials. The property manager met us at the closest gas station and led us to the house. The house is way back in a gated, security patrolled neighborhood that's a bit of a maze, we managed to take a wrong turn everytime we were coming or going. It's very secluded, which is really cool. You can't hear or see any other houses from this location.
Overall the house is very well maintained, luxurious, and a great place to stay.

First of all we want to say that the owner is a real gentleman and very kind always ready to help as well as The house manager David.
We were 6 in the house and ALL was perfect and really peaceful and exotic. Very secluded place ,,,,only monkeys can see you. The house was great, clean and very spaceful.
In one word A 5 stars at reasonable price. The service for any request was speady and kind from the manager and the owner. Many good scoop for activities were suggest and helpful. The house is located in a very safe area with very king guardian at the entrance. They make a continuous 24 hours 7 days safety check of the houses and make us feel in total security.
The house is very near from everything to do with a rental car around. The beach nearby is very secluded for miles and the waves are very good with 86 F temperature of the water. You can walk miles without seeing many people.
We have cross the Costa Rica from North to south and it is a best trip ever made for us .
The scoop for the rental car is really good as we were really well served by that.
The crocodile and the monkey boat were very special experiences .
The nature around the house and everywhere was charming .
Manuel Antonio national park was great and the advise to take a guide serves us a lot.
We already recommend to many friends!
Thanks for all Gerald!

As close to nature as you can get.

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of five. We stayed there for 9 days and are very glad we did. The first thing that you notice is how nice the streets are and how few houses there are around. We saw only two people - once - during our whole stay! And the nature! Costa-Rica at its best. So many plants, birds, monkeys, mammals of all kinds etc. We had blue butterflies alongside as we were jogging. These are impressive creatures.

So the spot is for people who do wish a contact with the forest in its natural form, all the while living in a very comfortable and safe setup. Which brings us to the house : large, luxurious, well appointed, it made us feel at home very quickly. The kitchen allowed us to do all the cooking we wanted. We enjoyed the pool a lot.
Around the house we enjoyed some of the many attractions there are : guided walks on the forest, zip lines, beaches : many choices were available. Since it was a high season for tourism, we missed the horse ride we wanted to do, so make a reservation in advance if you want to be sure.

The owner of the place is a very helpful gentleman. We are glad that we followed his advices on different topics, like the car rental to do business with.

We left the place two months ago. It's been a very cold winter in Quebec and we have 6 inches of snow coming down today. No doubt we would love to see the place again.

Owner's Response: YJ was an ideal guest. He did his homework before going to a country he and family had never visited and asked good questions before leaving Quebec. It is pleasing that this family enjoyed our house for the very same reasons we built it. Jusqu'à la prochaine visite. (until the next visit).

Magical experience !!!

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of four that vacationned at Gerald's beautiful home from december 24th 2012 to january 14th 2013 (two adults and teen's 16 and 13). 3 weeks in haven... The home was spacious, beautifully decorated and had all the amenities. The only thing we had a bit of trouble with the internet stick... but than again weren't there to work :)
The house is located on a 450 acres development with about 16 house built but far away one from the other. So, very private. Once your outside you will find a covered terace with a beautiful wood table for six as well as two loudge chairs. There you will have great enjoyment of the outside and will you be able to observe gecko's at least that's we did as well as hear all the forest music and admire the wild life. You will also surelyapreciate the refreshing pool with a water fall(from 5 to 6 at the end of the day).But you wood not wanted to be on more than that since it covers the forest music...also two loudge chairs by the pool. It was our first experience in costa rica and we were so glad to have chosen this house since we were able to see so much wildlife; Tucan's, monkey's (and a lot of them) all kinds of beautiful buterfly's, gecko's, jesus gecko's as well. Just take a walk around the development or stay put on your loudge chair, they will come. It's a gated community. We felt secure. You are about 10 minutes from the Esterillos beach, beautiful by the way. You are 20 min approx. frome Jaco were you have two grocerie store's. You also have a smaller one in Esterillos by the beach were you will find almost evrithing and in Jaco you will definitly find all you need. Great place's to surf Esterillos, Playa hermosa(for experienced) and Jaco (smaller) Brett is the one who rented us our board's (we did not bring our own) no sense doing so since depending on the type of wave, you might want to change and Brett will gladly change it for you.People are very friendly. Conclusion, it was a dream vacation and Gerald's house contributed grately. Thank's again Gerald and Pura vida :) and if you want to give my name and number for reference's, no problem

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5
We are owners of a nearby lot and rented a week in 3/12. We had another couple (and their car) as guests. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is beautiful. Very nice pool and patio, excellent kitchen, and spacious throughout. Furniture, especially the tables made of native woods, is great.

We loved the Scarlet Macaws in the almond trees at the Esterillos Oeste beach--and at the nearby mating tree. Also had great time at Carara National Park (with a guide) and at Damas (boat ride) and Manuel Antonio NP.

Walks on the roads in the early morning or the evening are enjoyable and rewarding.
