About Addison Birdine

In 2005, I traveled to Costa Rica with friends just to see the country.

At that time, I was employed with the City of Los Angeles Fire Department. I really had no idea I would come to fall in love with the natural beauty of this Country and its very friendly people.

Following my first visit to this country and the feeling of peace I had while there, I was convinced I wanted to purchase the land my home is now built on. Within three years construction was completed, and I have enjoyed each and every visit.

In 2011, after 31 years in what I consider is one of the most stressful occupations in the world, I retired.

I continue to travel to Costa Rica on a regular basis and have decided that others must experience one of the worlds natural beauties!!!!

Addison Birdine purchased this house in 2006

Why Addison Birdine chose Puntarenas

Because I grew up in a large city, to me the beauty of this property was the location. It is within close proximity to what I consider is a very private beach. Yet, the property is close enough to towns and tourism activities and If I feel the need to enjoy shopping, restaurants and an exciting night life.

Additionally, while most of the homeowners do not live in the complex on a permanent basis (there are some that are here year around), this community is not short of feeling like home.

There are parts of this country that are still unspoiled, and I can only imagine that this is what Hawaii must have felt like prior to becoming a tourist mecca.

What makes this house unique

While my house may be modern in terms of architecture (I really like the Mediterranean look), it is still basically in the 'Rain Forest'.

Occasionally you will see monkeys in the trees that are adjacent to the property, and with the beach being so close, it is the perfect vacation location.

Beautiful, friendly, and safe area

  • 5 of 5

We had the privilege of staying in this beautiful home for just over a week. The pictures are exactly what you get - by far the most luxurious place we have stayed in Costa Rica for a great price.

Costa del Sol is in a tiny little beach town close to Parrita which has everything you need but is still far enough away to retreat from life and experience Pura Vida. It was incredibly safe and everyone was so friendly.

The house itself was fantastic. Everything was in perfect working order and Marco the care taker was there and available for anything we needed. The house was well stocked which made our trip flawless. And our kids spent hours upon hours in the beautiful and extremely clean pool. The beach is just a short walk down the road and we had many beautiful sunsets and hot sunny afternoons there.

The area is perfect to retreat to but close enough to many practical day outings including waterfall hikes, Manuel Antonio, Dominican and Uvita - all which host numerous activities.

Would we stay there again? In a heartbeat! Thankyou so much for sharing your beautiful home with our familia!

Central place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I have to thank Addison Birdine for having this awesome house that we were able to live in for a week. This was everything we could of wanted for our first Costa Rica vacation. This was a central location for our visit where we wanted to be able to tour Jaco, Queppo to Manual Antonio. I enjoyed waking up first out of the six of us every morning. I would get up and make coffee and cut some fresh fruit from the local fruit stands and then out to the pool with the coffee I would go. There were six of us and very comfortable we were. All with our own bedrooms and bathrooms. I can't think of anything that we needed that there wasn't. We had plenty of towels. Having the washer and dryer was great. No bugs and no mosquitos! After every day of touring we really enjoyed the pool. Everything in the house was just so nice and pretty. We were able to get some lobster tails and use the grill outside and we enjoyed dinner at the dining room table. We loved the beach in Bejuco and we walked down to Pelicano a few times. It was about a half hour walk. It was a great place for drinks and dinner. We had rented a car and would advise anyone staying here to rent a car. You came this far to Costa Rica so get out and see it. We went out with the Ocean King catamaran and had a great time. We did a combo tour with Axr in Jaco and did a quad and a horseback tour that were awesome. In between our quad and horseback tour we went to lunch at the Side street bar and they had a band playing. They had craft beer and the food was great. We went to Rainmaker and loved the hanging bridges and waterfalls.It was so worth the fun we had. At the end of the tour we had some craft beers. If we come back to Costa Rica we would be sure to come back to this house

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

Me, my wife, and our two young daughters spent five weeks in Costa Rica and stayed for a week in Bejuco. This house is truly amazing and we had a fantastic stay! The house is beautifully furnished, clean, and extremely comfortable. All the details were taken care of before we arrived and we did not have any concerns during our stay. Marco was very friendly and easy to work with and Addison provided excellent service and recommendations. We enjoyed running and surfing at the beach (short walk) and relaxing by the private pool in the back yard. We highly recommend this house!

Everything was perfect! Great service and accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

From the preparation months before to the last day of our stay, we were well taken care of with this property. We did not experience any problems whatsoever. The house had all we needed for the stay and was very clean and well-maintained, all appliances worked and there were plenty of utensils, plates and other household items to use. We were about 30 minutes from Jaco to the north and 10 minutes to Parritas to the south and there are two mini markets very close by which made it very convenient to get snacks and last minute essentials. We especially enjoyed the food at El Puente in Parritas, great fish seasoned with ajilo (garlic butter) and Chifrijo (appetizer with chicharone and rice and beans). We recommend the Crocodile tour, the monkey tour and the Riders ATV tour on the beach and jungle (100 meters north on Punta Leona, 506-8348-7480), best ATV tour I've ever had. We also did the zip lines, which was nice with platforms that were about 45 meters high in the jungle. The property is very secure with on-site security frequently making rounds in the neighborhood, everyone was very friendly and helpful. The a/c units in the home were more than adequate and made sleeping very comfortable. We enjoyed the pool and BBQ after long days shopping or taking tours, a very relaxing experience with the starry nights. Wi-fi in the house works great. We honestly cannot think of anything negative about our experience in Montana De Los Dioses. Addison did a great job with a very well furnished and decorated home and we appreciated the lengthy information he gave us on every detail you can think of to make the stay more convenient. Marco was very attentive in setting us up and apart from information on tours and local sites, we really did not need to call him throughout the week, but he was available to assist if needed. Great experience and we had a wonderful stay, I highly recommend this property!

Beautiful home in a safe gated community!!!

  • 5 of 5

The owner has a beautiful home in a safe gated community that is very nicely decorated. It had comfortable beds, nice amenities amenities and much needed A/C. Our family of 5 had a lot of room to be on our own or together when we wanted. The backyard and pool area is really nice! I am not a plant or flower person but I loved the very unique trees and plants in the backyard and spent a lot of time checking them out.

Even though our plan was to stay busy every day we were often in the home due to rain or just to get out of the heat for awhile. That meant we took advantage of the comfy sofas to watch movies on a nice entertainment system or used the wifi which worked really well.

Our only complaints about the home was that there was not a working coffee maker and there was no salt or pepper or basic spices.

The property manager Marco was a pleasure to work with and he assisted us in transportation to our home from the airport in San Jose.

When you go you have to spend time on the beach just down the road. The warning about riptides are real but children who are properly supervised and stay at knee length in water can actually have a lot of fun. The incoming waves are a blast and we never felt unsafe. (Nor did we venture out very far where others get into trouble).

Destinations in the area that we recommend include:

1. Rainmaker - loved the suspensions bridges, waterfall pools to swim in, and the lunch served after.

2. Manuel Antonio park - it is worth getting a guide when you get there as they saw so many things we did not and use a telescope to get you really good shots on you camera. We bargained with a guy and was able to get a 2 hour private tour for 5 for $50,000.00 colonnes.

3. Vista Los Suenas in Herradura zipline canopy tour - expensive but so fun!!! The staff are wonderful and it is exhilarating. We got lucky and saw a large flock of Toucans up close when we were standing on one of the platforms about 60 meters up a tree!!!

4. If you are in Herradura drive through the area with all of the expensive resorts and hotels. We saw a lot of Macaws there flying tree to tree on the east side of the property. You will hear them first. They are very loud!!!

5. Finally, if you need to buy souvenirs go to Jaco where every second shop is a gift shop. We bartered and got some good deals.

Pura Vida!

Beautiful space

  • 5 of 5

Though I thought the space would be somewhat larger, the pictures reflected it accurately, and it was a beautiful home! It's far enough from Jaco Beach to bring peace but close enough that it's not a gruesome drive. The pool is wonderful, both at the house and in the community. The property manager was very responsive, and being in a gated community gave an added sense of security. It's a 3-4 hr. drive from attractions in Monteverde, but that wasn't problematic for us. It was the perfect space to come back to. Not to mention, we booked the space within a week of travel, and the owner was quick and accommodating.
