Our trip to Costa Rica was great! Ken picked us up from the airport on the day we arrived, which was so convenient! He was so sweet to offer to stop at a supermarket on our way from the airport so that we could get a few groceries for the Villa. During the car ride down he also helped educate us on easy ways to convert U.S. dollars to Colones, etc. When we arrived at the house he made sure all our questions were answered, and gave a cell phone to use for the duration of our stay, what a life saver. The house was so cute and peaceful right on the water. We enjoyed going to the lagoon nearby, as well as eating at the two nearby restaurants and bar. We had such a great time at the villa, and surrounding area!
the hosts were too kind and helpful, the location was accurate and the neighborhood was very kind. I will always book at this location, soon I will book again, only for a much longer stay, I wish forever.... Ken and Marlen are the best. down to earth, teach you whatever you need and very clean Villa. Simply charming and peaceful. truly loved it. I will be back as soon as I can for sure.
We were so pleased with our stay at the Beach Front Villa. We had the package with the Jeep and transportation to and from the San Jose airport. Ken was at the Villa when we arrived. He gave us a tour of the villa and provided us a local phone to use for our stay preloaded with important numbers for our trip. We were traveling with our 3 and 6 year old and he had a small swimming pool and beach toys available for their use. The villa had everything we needed for our stay, beach chairs, umbrella, plenty of towels, washing machine, coolers, and a well stocked kitchen. The Jeep was well equipped for the bumpy dirt road to get us to and from all destinations and it came with a GPS to help us get around. Ken very nicely supplied car seats for our kids, which was such a bonus. One less thing to have to think about. The Villa had very comfortable beds, a room air conditioner, WiFi and cable TV. It has an outdoor shower and an indoor shower with on demand hot water. The back room consisting of the shower room, bath room, washing machine and a desk area was able to be locked very securely to store any valuables that we had brought. Ken allowed us access to the pool and kayaks from his brother's place next door which was an added bonus. We enjoyed the pool twice during our trip. The location was close to Jaco (about 25 minutes), close to Carara National Park (about 20 minutes), close to groceries at Plaza Herradura (about 20 minutes) and about 2 hours to Manuel Antonio/Quepos area. The beach right outside the Villa is too rough for safe swimming, but there are two other options, 1 down the beach about 500 yards and 1 up the road about 5 minutes drive (excellent, protected and with lots of shade). But the beach right outside the Villa sure makes for fantastic sunset viewing!
Ken has really good service, he is a great host, the girls loved this place right at the beach front.
Ken and Marlen were wonderful hosts. Ken and his brother Gary were there to greet us and they explained everything so well. Ken gave us a local phone to use that already had the numbers we needed programmed in --- That was a great help. The villa was exactly as described and we had a ball in Costa Rica. The Pacific ocean is literally in your front yard -- just as it is pictured. We had so much fun and Ken kept in contact with us and answered any questions that we had. It was fabulous!
Ken was an awesome host! He picked us up from the airport and gave us a whole bunch of tips/recommendations when we first arrived. The villa is in a beautiful spot right in front of the beach. We loved waking up and going to bed with the crashing waves. The villa is very clean and has everything you need. Ken also left us a cell phone and he checked up on us every few days to see how we were enjoying our trip. We also booked his jeep which I think is a must if you're going to travel to the touristic spots. There's a bar/restaurant down the street from the villa if you don't want to drive out for dinner but we didn't eat there. On the main road(34) there are plenty of restaurants to get some yummy tico food. Ceviche is awesome and fresh, they serve it all restaurants. Couldn't have stayed at a better spot in Costa Rica! Pura Vida!
We really enjoy our stay in that villa. The kids enjoy take their shower outside and play on the beach. Close to the villa, there is a little play ground on the beach.
It's a very quiet place and I always feel secure.
Ken and Marlen were there to help us for any questions we had during our trip and having their cell phone was very helpful.
I moved to Costa Rica 2 years ago..fell in love with a wonderful women named Marlen & were married. We both love to be around people... It's wonderful to build relationships with the Vacationers that stay at our Private Beach Villa..! We love to accommodate them in every way possible. We like walking on the Beach, Music & Bar-B-Q's, and just being outdoors is great for us..! So having Guests share in their experiences while their here in Costa Rica and sharing with them what it's like to Travel around the Country, to take in the different sites is fun for Marlen & I... they leave with a full experience of--- Costa Rica. The Beaches the Animals the Zip Line Tour..! For them to enjoy the Great Culture and the Ticos who live in Costa Rica & see and enjoy the sites... is what.. Costa Rica -- is all about..!
Hope to see you in Costa Rica... Pura Vida..!
