Bird watching dream come true
I found my huge tropical deck with panoramic views to enjoy the day long bird watching. I was able to use my scope, watch countless different types of birds, good access, single story, and huge pool to enjoy. Best jungle experience yet.
Thanks Peggy - I hope we'll see more of you!
Great deck to view monkeys and birds
Nice house and comfortable beds. House has a few maintenance issues but we had everything we needed. Saw lots of monkeys and birds. It is an adventure getting here but that was part of the fun. Would definitely stay here again
Spectacular views, lots of natural wildlife... but home has been neglected.
The home offers beautiful views of the tropical hills & valleys, with the gulf in the background. We saw squirrel monkeys, capuchin monkeys, howler monkeys, tucans & scarlet macaws daily, as we hiked trails near the home. The house itself has been neglected. Only one of the two bathrooms was functioning for our entire stay. The air conditioning in the largest bedroom didn’t work for our entire stay. There was severe termite damage in the master bedroom closet, a bad ant problem in the kitchen, and many wasp nests outside, under the deck roof. The caretaker, Freddy was very friendly and helpful, but seemed to have his hands full with maintence of the pool and multiple homes. We’ve visited Costa Rica many times, and understand the challenges associated with managing property in a tropical environment - the home isn’t receiving regular maintenance. Considering all of the things that didn’t work as they should - the rental was overpriced.
We absolutely loved it. We stayed for a month and have already made bookings for 2019. The views from the large covered veranda looking out across the rain forested hills to the ocean and beaches were absolutely gorgeous. Lots of colourful birds and butterflies. We often heard, but did not see howler and squirrel
monkeys. The house was larger and more luxurious than we had anticipated base on the pictures in the VRBO website.
The 2 km road to the house is a bit of a challenge, so a 4x4 vehicle is definitely recommended.
The pool is large and beautifully located amongst tropical plants and flowers.
Everyone we met was very friendly and helpful.
Many thanks for your kind words Ernie. Great that you are coming back again next year!
Dave and I stayed at Casa Amarillo from Jan. 15-23. What a lovely time of year to be in the jungle. We completely enjoyed our stay, and would like to pass on to anyone reading this that this is a beautiful home. We enjoyed every afternoon watching the sunset from the spectacular deck. We loved our morning walks through the finca. Freddy the caretaker is great. He was there checking on us each day, and showed us sloth, toucan, and even a group of spider monkeys. We met some of the local people during our stay, and must say that Costa Rica and its people seem warm and welcoming. I would absolutely stay here again.
The best option for family holidays with kids. Very nice and spacious house generously equipped.
Beautiful views as announced, plenty of wild life and a couple of pets around, a big swimming pool enjoyable anytime. The person in charge is efficient and helpful. It's a 30 minutes away from the beach, there is a couple of restaurants at the same distance, a 4x4 is needed. A visit to Golfito (45 min drive) and Paso Canoas (an hour drive) is recomendable. It is going to be our favourite place to stay with friends or family in this part of the country. Don't expect to see lots of tourists or exciting night life in the coast villages. It is easy to buy fresh fish and seafood. During national holidays the beaches are full with local people otherwise almost empty.
As Natalia says, this is a great place for families looking to get away from the tourist traps and enjoy peace and quiet, great views and genuine Tico hospitality amid the rainforest teeming with wildlife. I think Natalia is referring to the beach at Zancudo. The beaches at Pavones are about 20-25 minutes' drive and the beach at Pilon is about 10 minutes drive. Glad you had a lovely stay and we hope to see you again soon!
