Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • As I checked-out after a ten-night stay at Chris' villa, I remember commenting to him that the time flew by yet the day I arrived seemed like a long time ago; no doubt I had a great time for my first stay in Hermosa/Jaco area and Chris' hospitality had a lot to do with it. He was quite helpful in answering my questions about the area, in finding me a surfing teacher and just information in general about Costa Rica. Didn't hurt that we both are in the same field of work.

    The location is quite ideal because the beach is ten minutes away and shopping/banking in Jaco another ten. The pool/rancho is great to cool off, well-maintained and clean. You feel secure at night because the gate to Loma del Mar is consistently locked. It is also quiet at night(no noisy neighbors); all you hear is the sound of the jungle. Here I had ample opportunity to relax and soak in the Jaco lifestyle. I can't wait to come back!

  • Villa in Playa Hermosa is the perfect place to stay if you are in the Jaco/Hermosa area. Chris is a kind and considerate host, who keeps his house impeccably clean. You will find all the conveniences of a private house, with access to pool and other ground amenities. The main attraction of course is access; access to beach, best surfing, and best restaurant and bars in Playa Hermosa--all about a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive.

    Within less than a few hours, Chris and his fiancee felt more like close friends than hosts, which I consider them to be. We ended hanging out on multiple occasions, but he was also respectful and discreet when I needed space. It was a general pleasure staying with him and I felt like I was visiting a friend's house. I cannot wait to plan another trip to Costa Rica and return to visit them.

  • Christopher is a real nice guy it seems but I did not get to meet him this time since he was working in San Jose and i got to hang out in Playa Hermosa. The communication was easy and the Place is located in an very quiet area close enough(short ride by Bike or Car) to the beach and some bars...

  • Chris welcomed us very nice and helped us with everything needed, including buying a surfboard and yoga classes. Lovely and clean house and around a lot of nature and quiet. There is no doubt that Chris and of course his lovely dog Ben were friendly and pleasant. Thanks for everything Chris,
    Arnon & Jordan
