  • I terribly, terribly M-I-S-S Costa Rica...the animals, the scenery, the lovely and happy people and most MOST especially THIS house and Thierry! He's the ideal host and you will literally feel his consistent positive energy, sincerity and warm welcome the second you see him, meet him, until you leave, and treat you nice! He made the pineapple that he bought me the best tasting pineapple ever! As per the accommodation, and i think i've pretty much elaborated this to Thierry...I was floored. B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L....more beautiful than the pictures can do justice. When you're at the deck you will be suctioned by a palette of nothing but green...a mini thick forest is literally in your face. At night when you're tired from all that touristy adventures, get a load of free concierto, courtesy of a plethora of birds...serenading you to a restful sleep. Superrr clean too, no bugs, huggggge space...and smells fabulous! I can still smell the sweet scent of the room on one of my shirts! It's like your own studio with kitchen and utensils, very comfy bed facing the forest, fantastic bathroom, lights'll feel at home right away. I personally can't get the smile off of my face from my surroundings even when I'm washing the dishes that i loathe so much doing. And the neighb is A+, verrry safe, really friendly and had a lot of "hola's" to throw, easy breezy access to public transpo...3-4 minutes maybe to the market/terminal/center (not sure about this but it felt super close!). If you're into zip line, you're just a few steps away. YOU WILL LOVE THIS PLACE.

  • I had a great stay at Thierry's apartment. It is great to be in such a quiet area, beside the jungle. Saw many monkeys during the week and my friend saw a toucan. Thierry is a very nice person. He was extremely helpful and kind. This is place that I highly recommend for being in the nature while not being to far from Quepos centre and Manual Antonio. Thanks for a great stay Thierry!

  • I had a lovely stay at Thierry's Birds Watching apartment. I had everything I needed, even borrowed a blender for my morning green drinks and a hairdryer for my hair!! The apartment is as exactly as it reads and looks in the pictures. Thierry was a fantastic host always making sure everything was ok. Communication was easy and quick. The internet was regular and fast which was important for me. Bed was comfortable and apartment was spacious. It's further out from the main town but for me it was perfect as I was looking for a quiet getaway with a kitchenette so I could cook my own food. There were regular buses and taxis close by so getting around was not a problem. I even got a lift from a friendly neighbour! I had some interesting little visitors on the balcony but no monkey visits. When I extended my stay I took up residence in his new apartment upstairs which was amazing, large and spacious. A bit noisy with the rain, being top floor and rainy season the rain was heavy, but I love the sound of nature so didn't bother me. Check it out or ask him for details. Highly recommended!!

  • Queppos is less touristy than Jaco, where I came from. I prefer it because of that, though there is a still a significant tourist attraction to fishing here, with special gringo bars and hotels. Thierry room here is so amazing, when I first arrived I thought I could live there. I guess because it is very comfortable room, which backs onto the forest. Theirry also welcomed me with food gifts which was unexpected, but special. Theirry was very helpful and kind.

  • Great stay at Theirry's! It feels like you are in the middle of the jungle, but you are still close to town. The apartment had everything we needed. This was a great value!

  • Thierry picked me up from the bus stop and showed me around town, which is very nice when arriving in an unknown place. The room was nice and suited my needs well. There was also a good hiking trail on the property.

  • LIke the over 100 other reviews, I have nothing but the highest praise.
    First of all, the place is exactly as represented, when I walked in , it look familiar to me, because I have spent so long staring at this picture, I felt I was already there :)
    The apartment itself, was spotless and cute. I had a concern about no AC but it is NOT a problem at all. You are literally backed into the rainforest and the trees help keep things a bit cooler and the fans are fine. Sometimes the jungle comes in for a visit, but hat is to be expected, and frankly part of the fun!
    THe monkeys weren't around, unfortunately, but they are everywhere so you wil run into them eventually. Thierry tells me they def hang around on the full moons.
    I did see some toucans so beautiful it brought tears to my eye....just there, flying around...awesome.
    I made many audio recordings from here, the sounds of the jungle are amazing.
    The location is perfect. Resort Layla across the road has a restaurant with good ceviche, and a pool you can use. Tell Jason I said Hi! You are a short 5 min, 2 dollar taxi from Quepos, close to Manuel Antonio and beaches.
    This is NOT a party place. The town is quaint and tiny and shuts down early. If you want a truly Tico, jungle experience, with access to the town and Park.
    This is it.
    Everything is exactly as promised and Thierry himself is a dream host. He went above and beyond for me, and helped make me trip the lie changing experience it was.
    Thanks arent big enough. Pura Vida Thierry

  • The flat is perfectly located at the ground floor of Thierry house, well equiped, fantastic balcony right inside the jungle where we saw dozen of toucans, monkeys, iguanas and other animals. It was really nice not to spend the week in the crowded Manuel Antonio road, instead you get there a delicious peaceful vibe. we used a car but bus pass just 100 m from the house, and catchîg a taxi is also super easy. In top of that Thierry is a really cool and friendly host, full of good can believe a man who's been living there for 20 years! We'll come back!

  • I spent four nights at Thierry's place with my husband and teenage son. It was a great value. One large room, very comfortable bed. Functional kitchen but not so well equipped that you'd really want to do much cooking there. The view from the porch is just as it is in the pictures - amazing forest immersion. We saw toucans, howler monkeys, morpho butterflies, and a hawk flying in to snatch a large insect mid-air. Thierry was very helpful and suggested a great beach to the south to get away from the Easter holiday crowds at Manuel Antonio. Thanks, Thierry!

  • Thierry is a great host - very informative and helpful with every and anything you could need. His place is very nice as well - clean, quiet, secure, excellent location, and excellent for watching the jungle fauna. One morning I awoke to some rustling in the canopy to find a family of white-headed capuchin monkeys passing through. One was curious and approached to within 2 meters; I was literally face-to-face with this amazing creature. Highly recommended host and accomodations!
