Great property which made for an incredible first visit to Costa Rica!
We were a group of 10 adults from Canada vacationing in Costa Rica for one week in January. This house turned out to be just perfect for us. It is located about 1 hour 15 minutes from San Jose airport and about 50 minutes from Jaco Beach. The property is in a quiet and clean neighborhood, and has a gated entrance. We did not have to question our security during our stay. There are seven bedrooms, each with a bathroom and at least two beds; we felt very comfortable.
Karin and Rupi are great hosts. They met with us when we first arrived to discuss housekeeping items and excursion suggestions. A cell phone is left for the use of the guests for local and long distance calls. They contacted us on the second night to check in with how things were going, and let us know to call them if we need anything.
The pool is great and the ocean is only minutes away. There is a supermarket called Maxi Pali for groceries which is about a 5 minute drive from the house. At the end of the street, there is a tourism shop where we booked most of our excursions.
Bernie and Ronald, the caretakers, are the most kind and helpful people. When asked in advance, Bernie would do laundry and have it back to us within the next day. Ronald cleans the pool every other morning, and would help with anything you ask. We arranged for them to cook for us on our last day, and they did not disappoint. The meals were delicious.
Our group only left the house for excursion activities and to explore Puntarenas. Other than those times, we found ourselves staying in the house for most nights. We were very content and felt we had everything we needed: being in a tropical paradise while being comfortable at home.
