We highly recommend renting a car for access to all the areas' touristy activities, but you can still have a wonderful and comfortable vacation without one. However, having your own mode of transportation will also give you the freedom to go into town for an evening at one of the areas' restaurants or to grab groceries at the local supermarket to enjoy a peaceful meal in the comfort of the home

We love the local feel, the tranquility (unlike Jaco or Manuel Antonio's crowds- 15 - 20 miles resp.) and the proximity to all the fun!
The village has a grocery store and a few restaurants. It's definitely a BEACH VIBE, very relaxing, park anywhere, no crowds!
The house is on the LARGES, MOST PRIVATE LOT in a secure community with a mix of locals and gringos.
Rental car highly recommended-
Airport transportation available (Optional).
Most our guests rent a car at the airport. (About 80 miles, good roads). A few guests have elected to not rent a car. This is feasible and you can still have a wonderful and comfortable vacation without one, but we personally highly recommend renting a car for easy access to all the areas' touristy activities and to see as much as possible of the Pura Vida life. Local buses are not always timely. Having your own mode of transportation will also give you the freedom to go into town for an evening at one of the areas' restaurants or to grab groceries at the main supermarket.
We have made arrangements with a local car rental company that will get you great rates and service. We can help.
Other Things to Note
We hope you'll enjoy the non-chlorinated SALT POOL. The water is soft, you can open your eyes underwater and you don't even have to rinse off after!
Another big hit (pun intended!) is the beautiful Teak PING PONG Table that doubles up as a great outdoor dining table. Fun for all ages!
The lower PALM GARDENS are beautifully landscaped, and feature a forest of aged King Palms. Our guests love watching the MONKEYS that pass through it nearly everyday, the occasional resident SLOTH is also a regular guest!
This is a NON SMOKING home. No Exceptions.
Also, please rinse off beach sand before using pool.
Quiet hours are from 10pm to 5am.
Small pets allowed with Owner's permission- Pet deposit/fee may apply.
We're there to help you Enjoy the Pura Vida!
Beautiful home and very spacious for 7 adults. We really enjoyed the pool, 2nd floor terrace with hammocks and amazing views.
Chloe was amazing! Having her and her family next door was great. We set off the alarm and the wifi went down once and she was quickly able to fix it. Any questions we had we walked over or Chloe came to us.
The house was perfect for our private chef dinner. We were able to all fit around the table and the chef had more than enough space to cook.
One thing...if you plan on going during dry season be aware that water levels are low.
Thanks Becky for the review. We are so glad you all enjoyed your stay with us at Casa Tucana! I am so glad you felt well cared for during your stay as it is our goal to provide a wonderful stay for all our guests! Sorry about the seasonal low water pressure as it is common to this area as you mentioned but we are working on some solutions currently with our pressure tank to improve that for the home. I am so glad that it all worked out well for your catered dinner and that it made for a wonderful special evening for you all. We would love to have you or any of your friends and family back again to stay with us. :)
Chloe & Daniel Murdoch
What a beautiful house, and there's plenty of space for a large group. The deck overlooking the jungle was my personal favorite. There's also a rooftop terrace that we used in the mornings a bit. The house was very easy to find and Chloe was extremely helpful in telling us about the area and booking us some scuba diving. There's a great bar owned by some Americans called Surf Mi that's on your way to the beach. They have fantastic fresh fish dishes that we couldn't get enough of. The drive to Jaco is all on well-paved roads, same with the roads to the airport. Thanks for such a great stay!
