Luke and Devons place was beautiful! Situated up a private road to a peaceful spot over looking an incredible view. We saw beautiful trees, birds, butterflies and even a Tucan. Luke and Devon were very accommodating. We are already planning on returning in the fall. The Guanacaste cabin was rustic yet comfy. We had 4 people and a baby and besides the crazy heat, the house was perfect!
Words and pictures do not do this place justice! The views are amazing and the cabin is perfect for a nice relaxing experience. Situated up on a hill, looking down into the jungle below. The sounds of the jungle will enchant anyone. Only issue we had was the wifi access. The wifi only worked at the main house and if you wanted to use it late at night you would wake Luke and his family, which is not cool. Just be prepared to be disconnected :)
It is very hard to describe the experience of living in a Cabin in the middle of the jungle. It was unique, an amazing and unexpected adventure. Due to the way the cabin is built, we trully connected with nature. You are constantly hypnotized with the beautiful madness that surrounds you.
Luke and family have been great to us, really nice and kind people. It was simply perfect.
Spending a few nights in this jungle cabin is a must do if you go to Costa Rica.
From the first communication Luke was incredibly welcoming, informative, prompt, professional and lovely. He knows about his properties, the town and the country and will be helpful in giving maps, directions, anything at all. His wife even lent us her bird guide while we were there. He made sure we were comfortable and taken care of and was always available for questions. The cabin itself is amazing. The best part of our 8 day trip that brought us to fancy hotels and resorts. Nope the jungle cabin was by far the best. It was perfect- even more charming than the pictures. We loved the screened in windows that let you go to sleep and wake up hearing the jungle sounds. Water was hot, wifi was decent for where we were, view was amazing. For a full two days we didn't even leave the cabin- we just sat outside on the chair on the hill and watched the wildlife- slots, monkeys, toucans, awesomely huge bugs and lizards. (If you don't like spiders- maybe go elsewhere but I feel bad for you because this place is magical.)
Luke og Devon var supersøde, entusiastiske og hjælpsomme. Vores hus havde den mest fantastiske udsigt med åbent køkken og balkon lige ud til dalen. Området var trygt, grønt og fyldt med dyreliv. Selve hytten var funktionel og hyggelig. Der er masser af aktiviteter i Dominical og skønne strande hele vejen langs kysten. Skønt ophold!
Luke and his family were very kind and warm. They greeted us with a goodie basket filled with fruit, coffee, candy and cookies. Luke was very helpful in drawing us maps and giving us direction of places to go. There was hot water (which we figured out, as long as you flipped the switch on outside before each shower). The cabin was cute and kept bugs out. We rented a 4x4 which helped us easily get around, we couldn't imagine not having a car there.
Overall our stay was pleasant and it was great being in the middle of the jungle among all the animals! We recommend this place to anyone who is seeking an adventure and wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of a town.
Luke was a life saver when we realized that we were unhappy at a different accommodation we had booked. He allowed us to come at 9pm with no prior warning and welcomed us with his son at their jungle home. He had put the room together with a welcome basket (coffee, bug spray, pineapple, mango, etc.) The cabin is very similar to what Luke described in his listing--it is deeply in the jungle, which means A LOT of wildlife (geckos, spiders, monkeys, toucans, etc.) We struggled with mosquitoes at night and when we told Luke, he immediately offered a mosquito net. The cabin is beautiful and rustic and Luke and Devon were extremely gracious and accommodating hosts.
Notre séjour à Las Palmas a été vraiment très agréable. Les directions pour nous y rendre étaient faciles à comprendre. Luc et son épouse nous ont très bien accueillis et nous ont donné plein d'idées d'activités à faire avec les enfants pendant notre séjour. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié leurs disponibilités.
Jolie petite cabane dans la jungle. Propre avec une cuisine à l'extérieur qui nous permettait de préparer nos repas.
L'accès à des serviettes de plage était vraiment apprécié.
Puisque nous étions en nature, il aurait été intéressant d'avoir accès à un BBQ style charbon de bois. Cela aurait été un plus pour cuisiner nos soupers.
Finalement, nous repartons avec une boite remplie de beau et bon souvenir de notre séjour dans la cabane Las Palmas.

The cabin was the perfect first-time experience of Costa Rica for us. We spent 4 nights there and you will definitely enjoy its private location up in the hills - close to Dominical (4x4 required). Outdoor kitchen and terrace is very cool. So is the surrounding rainforest which was alive with life day and night.
Luke and Devon are extremely helpful and friendly hosts. Definitely recommend for anyone in dry or wet season visiting this area!
How can we find a better place? It was an amazing experience in the jungle...It's a very great place, the housse and the wiew on the forest were awesome.If you want to stay on the rocking chair watching the nature or if you want to go surfing at dominical or other beachs, you have the choice... if you want to stay in town and have a lot of neighbours it's not the good place!
All you need is here: nature, wonderfull wiew, an all road to climb with your 4WD ... the sunrise on the forest, animals (birds, frogs, monkeys...) Prepare local food on the outside kitchen outside, you can also use the blender to make fruit juice easely.
You can come with your childrens, it's safe and mine really appreciate (3 and 6 years old). Ready for the adventure? Sure, I will come back asap!
Thank you for all Luke and Davon, we were very happy to meet you, we feel very good during our trip...
Luke is a great guest, personable, considerate and tidy. We'd be delighted to welcome him back any time.
