“Beautiful jungle vacation rental, listen to howler monkeys and the ocean!”

My husband and I stayed for 8 nights and loved every minute! Tom & Jana arranged our transportation from San Jose, which was a huge relief. We sat on the huge front deck and watched poison dart frogs and geckos on the big tree, enjoyed our bottle of gift of wine and chocolates. We loved that the house had screens to keep the insects out, but that also opened to allow us to lean out the windows to take photos. The property is immaculate (we own a cleaning company & are very picky). I was hesitant to rent a place without a/c, but we never once felt hot. There are ceiling fans inside and on the deck, and there was a generous ocean breeze every day we were there. We cooked several meals in the kitchen and had everything we needed. Tom drove us to the grocery store in town the night we arrived and even helped us choose ripe fruit. There is also a small neighborhood store about a 3 minute walk from the casita. We had plenty of clean towels plus beach towels and mats. There are 2 bikes provided and when one had a flat, Tom had it fixed while we had breakfast. There are 2 boogie boards as well, though we never used them. My biggest concern before our trip was about safety, but we never felt unsafe anywhere in Costa Rica. The property is gated and fenced, the neighbors are very pleasant, and the neighborhood feels very safe. Tom and Jana also provide a cell phone for use while you're there and we felt like if we were to have had any trouble in town, we could call or text for a rescue. We walked between the casita and the beach after dark and there were many people out, including some with children. I can't say enough good things about the property, the area and Tom & Jana. When there were 7 sloths in trees out front, they let us know and pointed each one out. We have photos of toucans sitting next to sloths in the trees near the house. We saw too many birds to count, including 2 red-lored parrots on our first day. The sounds are incredible -- we loved hearing the howler monkeys every morning and evening. Tom also drove us to the ARA project to see the green macaws, not just one of the highlights of our trip, but one of the highlights of my life. In addition, he took us on a hike to a stunning waterfall & to a great local fried chicken place in Bri Bri. On our last night we joined them for dinner and went to Lazy Mon for music/sunset. They helped turn a great vacation into a magical one.
