About the Owner

We are from Canada, and have been visiting Costa Rica numerous times over several years. Like many, we fell in love it all! Our first vacation outside of a resort, was in Costa Rica, and such a wonderful experience.

We were made to feel safe and comfortable. Flying in after dark, we were picked up at the airport and driven to our vacation home, groceries were in the fridge for the morning, we had help renting a vehicle for the first time, and we felt safe driving and exploring and shopping.

We want to share this same experience for others. Our property manager Cristian, will look after all of your needs, whether you need a pickup at the airport, car rentals or arranging some amazing tours.If you do not wish to drive Cristian can also provide a local personal driver to take you where ever you wish to go.(Fee's Extra)We work hard to ensure our guests are well taken care of and have a very comfortable and memorable stay in our home.

Great vacation !

  • 5 of 5
The house is spacious, comfortable and very clean. We felt we were in the jungle and still so close to everything! Manager is very helpful. Within short driving distance from beaches, grocery, restaurants, bank... Within very reasonable driving distance from national parks, volcanos and many other attractions. Great place to spend a relaxing vacation with friends or family!

First timer to CR

  • 4 of 5
This place was a great choice for our first time to Costa Rica. The neighbor was friendly (Gino) and gave us a wealth of information about the area from where to shop and what to look out for plus just general information about the area itself. The house is only located a couple minutes away from the best shopping center in the area in herradura. We didn't see any other place match the same shops and grocery store anywhere in jaco. While we were there we did the zip lining (which is only a couple minutes away from the house) and fishing with a guy named Gino that was recommended by the property manager. The fishing trip was unique and well guided by Gino and is hand. We stopped off for lunch on a private beach(complete with waterfall) and they cooked our catch for us. The house itself is set up great. 2 good size bedrooms with queen beds and 2 full bathrooms which worked out great for me and my friend. The only thing that would be nice is a microwave. Other than that small detail everything was perfect.

Family on vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had an awesome vacation here! The house was a great choice; off the beaten path, but literally just minutes from beach, grocery shopping, adventure, & main highway! Renting a car is a must if you wish to get out and see the sights. The listing & photos accurately reflect what you get. The property is tucked right next to mountains so you feel next to the jungle without being there, yet you're only 5 minutes from the beach. We went zip lining (3 minutes up the road), on nature walks, shopping in Jaco (about 5 minutes away), Fishing trip with Tico Tours, and spent a day at Manuel Antonio National Park (approx 70 km away). The best was Gino's Tico Style Tour. A must do! Loved the ease of getting groceries and getting around. The house is beautiful with all the stone and the neighbours are friendly and helpful. Rey & Jan were very helpful in organizing our trip, and providing information. The local property manager also checked in on us throughout the week. It was easy to get around and do whatever you desire. I highly recommended this place if you're looking for a combination of relaxation and adventure combined into one vacation. :)

Our Week in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5
This was one of our best vacations. Renting a car is a must. We loved not being in the thick of Herradura. The listing accurately reflects what you get. The property is tucked right next to mountains so you feel next to the jungle without being there. Ray is a fantastic owner who did everything he could to help us. We went on ATV tour, zip lining, waterfall climbing, nature walks, shopping in Jaco, crocodile tour and visited Manuel Antonio National Park. The best was Gino's Tico Style Tour. A must do. Loved the ease of getting groceries and getting around. The house is beautiful with all the stone and the neighbors are friendly. Several are expat Canadians. The nearby town of Tarcoles has the croc tours and a wonderful place to eat, Chepe's. I have recommended this place to friends and we plan on going back again in the future.

Location

From the Owner

We love the central Pacific area! We chose to build our home here on the edge of the jungle to enjoy the macaws and toucans spotted from our yard. Nestled in the mountain, we enjoy quiet privacy away from the beach hustle and bustle. Yet when we feel like being adventurous we can take a 5 minute drive for groceries, dining at the many ocean restaurants, golf, zip-lining, surfing, or strolls along the beach. We are located in Phase 2 of Los Tucanes development, and when we wish to dip and cool off, we can enjoy the pool anytime, just a short walk up the road in Phase 1.

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended

We are nestled in a private brand new 2 bedroom, 2 bath home in the jungle, and yet only a 5 minute drive to the ocean, restaurants on the beach, and modern shopping for all your needs.

Central to many excursions and activities, you can adventure out to explore and sight see many close by attractions, or choose to lay back and rejuvenate in peace and tranquility.
