traveler reviews for this manuel antonio/quepos house rental

This location was perfect

Review submitted: January 25, 2014   Date of arrival: January 15, 2014

House was perfect, clean, great location if you want the true Costa Rican feel. Daniel was more than happy to help us with excursions off the beaten path. Beach was a great walk, not crowded and safe. Local restaurants were very good. We had six adults who enjoyed morning animals, birds and lizards. Pool was cleaned twice during our stay and housekeeping came once. Toilets were not an
issue ( that's how it's done in Costa Rica, it's okay). We really enjoyed the pool. The house could use some up keep with the swing, two chairs outside and the stove which is a little temperamental. Otherwise great place, definitely need a car. Thank you Daniel and Chloe.

Owners response: Hi Glenn and Family,
thanks so much for taking the time to review your stay with us at Casa Tucana. We are so glad you had a wonderful vacation with us. We are also glad to hear that you felt the property was very clean and maintained to your expectations throughout your trip.

I wanted to comment on the up keep items mentioned as it is always our desire to always keep on top of everything with the home and make sure it is up to date, very comfortable and relaxing for all that stay with us! Since your review, we have updated the swing rope as it is a constant project due to the rope nature of the swings use etc. and we have also replaced the 2 deck chairs as they were wood and with the harsh sun and weather here they wore down very quickly. As for the stove top it is a really nice Gas Range but it does need to be lit by hand using a long lighter which we provide for our guests. I am sorry it was a bit tricky for you as it does have a specific touch for lighting. :)

Thanks for your comments as we are always looking to provide personalized and excellent services to our guests.

Blessings and we look forward to your next stay with us here in Costa Rica.

Pura Vida!

A gem of a house, Great location and service

Review submitted: January 22, 2014   Date of arrival: January 11, 2014

We had a great time at Casa Tucana. The house was lovely and well furnished. Very relaxing and private setting. The rooms were large with tall ceilings, the salt water pool…. Aaaah…. perfect! We played ping pong on the beautiful teak table and BBQ on the patio. There was monkeys in the trees and a sloth too. Kids were very excited….so were we!
Daniel (owners' son) was super helpful. He and his wife are from California, so it was easy to communicate. They arranged some fun things for us to do. It was really nice not to have to deal with the planning. We rented local cell phones from them so we could always be in touch, which was reassuring. Our favorites adventures were: surf lesson & jet ski with Daniel, Zip lines and the Crocodile River tour. We also spent a day in Manuel Antonio and an afternoon in Jaco which are only about a 20-35 minute drive each way. Its was fun but quite a bit more crowded than Esterillos.

THis was a super relaxing setting, the beach went for miles and was perfect for surfing and boogie boarding (rented boards from Daniel - very convenient). Kids had fun swimming in the calm water of the tide pools (water is about 85F). We were the only ones on the beach most of the time except for a few locals.
We stocked up on food in Jaco before getting to the house, as Chloe had suggested, and got pretty much everything else we needed at the local grocery store. There are 3 restaurants in the village, we tried them all, all fresh, tasty food.
Over all, we totally loved our stay at Casa Tucana and recommend it for families or groups who want to experience the real Costa Rica.
Thanks Dan and Chlo for a fantastic time.

Most relaxing & enjoyable. Great house managers!

Review submitted: January 7, 2014   Date of arrival: December 5, 2013

Great vacation all around! Casa Tucana has every thing needed and is beautifully furnished and very spacious... and cool! We enjoyed the large salt water pool overlooking majestic palms. Lots of monkeys passing every morning.
The owners' son, Daniel, and his wife Chloe live next door and were most helpful. Daniel gave us surf lessons, took us out on the jet ski (so FUN!), Chloe arranged some meals for us, and massages, even car and cell phone rental. They made everything so easy and planned several excursions for us--snorkeling at Tortuga Island, horse rides, river rafting, crocodile river tour and zip lines. Every one has such a great time. It was a good thing we took their advice and got up very early (6am!...even the teenagers!) wouldn't miss those magical morning hours.
We loved the little village nearby. Not much there, but the grocery store has everything you need and there is a great carribean style restaurant. It's definitely local and we loved that. The beach was beautiful and totally empty!!! Great for learning to surf.
We wish we has stayed a couple extra days (or weeks!), it was hard to leave paradise. We plan on going back, hopefully next year, with friends (Daniel's parents own another couple large luxurious homes a few miles away). This was a great home and vacation, we recommend it whole heartedlly.
