Perfect Vacation

Review submitted: June 12, 2013   Date of arrival: March 9, 2013

My wife and I stayed for two weeks at Tina and John’s wonderful house at Playa Hermosa. The location itself is great—an easy drive from San Jose airport, about 90 minutes, and the gated oceanfront community is a very peaceful, low-key, and beautiful resort-style area, right on the warm Pacific, with its unbelievable sunsets and world-class surfing. The house is fantastic—everything you could want, including washer/dryer, wifi, full kitchen, three bedrooms, sitting rooms, great A/C, garage, gas grill, outdoor Jacuzzi, and great, attentive staff members. The house is so spacious that we were able to have another couple join us for our second week
Playa Hermosa is a short 10 minute drive from the small town of Jaco, where we went everyday to buy our groceries, fresh fruit, produce, and incredible fresh fish. Jaco has a combination of American-style restaurants and plenty of great local places to eat and shop. The house is close to plenty of nice day-trips, like sailing at Herradura, hiking at Manuel Antonio national park, or visiting the most amazing sunset overlook at Villa Caletas.
Just leave plenty of time to relax and enjoy. We are already planning our next trip!

Owners response: Thank you for the many details in your review. We are so happy to hear how much you enjoyed our beach home and your recent trip.

Would it surprise you to know our home was previously known as "Pax a la Playa", or Peace on the Beach?

The ease of getting there, the great proximity to all of the central coasts activities, attractions & the areas friendly people, combined with the peaceful resort feel of the neighborhood make it a destination we never tire of. The day we leave there is often the same day we start planning our return....

We would be delighted to have you back & look forward to adding you to our growing list of return guests.

Pura Vida!

John & Tina

AWESOME.

Review submitted: May 24, 2013   Date of arrival: April 25, 2013

This beautiful home was perfect for our visit. The location is incredible - beautiful views & very close to the beach. The house was well equipped and very comfortable & clean. The pool in the yard is perfect for cooling off, relaxing, reading. The property managers (Trey & Enricho) were so nice & helped us get the gas grill going. The community pool (huge) is very close by & they even let you take the chairs on the beach. We felt very safe in this gated community. We DID feed Paco a banana or two! This home gets an A-plus - we'll return for sure!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Hello Susan

Thank you for your comments about our beach home, its location, beach & pool proximity, views, comforts, local property management and cleanliness!

We are so glad to hear you enjoyed our home and your stay! As you have noticed, we try to take excellent care of our home and our guests.

We look forward to adding you to our growing list of return visitors.

A few upgrades are planned, so hopefully you will find our place even more to your liking on your next visit...

Pura Vida!

Disappointed

Review submitted: February 13, 2013   Date of arrival: January 2, 2013

Although the house was beautiful, we encountered the following inconveniences:
1. The instructions for entry only provided a lock box key code. I was very upset that we were not notified in advance that the lock box was hiding in the back of the house. We had to circle the house several times in the dark to find it. Once we found it and opened the box...there were three keys in it. one key opened the main lock on the front door but the other two keys did not open the dead bolt lock. thus we were locked out of the house. We eventually got in by my son in law who had to climb through the kitchen window to let us in!
2. no propane for the BBQ
3. wifi did not work half the time we were there.
4. we were also told by the guard at the gate that the tap water was non-potable, so we had to buy bottled water during our stay.
5. Not enough toilet paper supplied. We bought more.

Owners response: Thank you for your recent comments. We apologize for any inconveniences you experienced. We strive to maintain our home to a considerably higher standard than most rentals. Not to discount your inconveniences in any way, but by way of an explanation, we recently transitioned to a new property management company located right in our neighborhood to better serve us & our valued guests. Their numbers and names are in our welcome packet.

As for the items that were overlooked on your check in, the missing deadbolt key was removed by our prior guests. We usually keep a spare propane tank beneath the laundry room sink. Extra toilet paper is usually stored in a kitchen cupboard. Each of these items will be checked prior to guest arrival in the future.

Throughout Costa Rica, there are occasional issues with electricity, water supply and internet reliability, as with many countries. Our neighborhood water supply comes from a private well. It is of better quality than many areas in Costa Rica. But when outside the US, bottled water is always recommended. We now recommend bottled water in our check in materials for our guests. Our local cable TV and phone companies, Cabla Tica and ICE, are continually investing in improved local cable plant infrastructure to improve internet reliability in the area. Our wireless router is nearly new and works well as long as the underlying DSL service is functioning.

Thank you for your detailed input on how we can improve our guests’ experiences. We understand that it is often the little things that make a difference. Pura Vida!
