We passed a wonderfull time at Neil's place. The villa is very well equiped and we were warmly welcomed by Neil. He made us feel at home and gave us good recommendations. In Herradura region there is planty actvities. We went see waterfall, beaches, we did canopy and we even went to Manuel Antonio park which is about 1h30 drive. Its was a pleasure ending the day at the villa and enjoy the surounding and the amazing pool.
Nadine and her young family were delightful guests, very easy to get along with. Their children are well-behaved. They appeared to have a lot of fun here, especially in the pool. Thanks Nadine and Federique. I hope you manage to come back again. You're always welcome. Bon chance!
Neil was a charming and fun host. He also gives great directions which is very important in a country without addresses. His property is gorgeous and the bungalow is well taken care of. It is not far at all from Jaco but, if you keep driving you can find some of the most beautiful lookouts and beaches the country has to offer.
I had an amazing stay in Neil's villa. The villa/house was clean, felt very comfortable and spacious. And what a serene environment! I sat outdoors for hours just gazing at the banana & almond trees, exotic flowers, colorful butterflies, all sorts of colorful birds (toucans, hummingbirds and more) and listened to the calls of the monkeys (I didn't get to see them on the villa grounds though). In overall the property is very private and feels very safe.
Also, what I didn't expect and was a big bonus, Neil was my unofficial tour-guide. He explained with patience and passion about the surrounding beaches and national parks. He also gave me some amazing surf lessons on the Jaco beach.
I also loved the daily activities, especially the horse-back ride up the mountain south of Jaco, where we were able to view the entire beautiful Jaco bay and surrounding mountains and ended with a wild beach gallop into the Pacific sunset.
I enjoyed Joseph's stay here very much. He showed a great appreciation for the tropical setting and tranquility and was very interested in the many attractions this amazing area has to offer. I hope he and maybe his family will return here soon. Joseph was the perfect guest.
