Overall, the property was awesome. Arturo and Maribel take a lot of pride in their work. Her cooking was really good, and they were very helpful with everything. They work really hard to make sure you worry about nothing but enjoying vacation. The location is not bad, but I do have to say that if you are looking to see some of the natural wonders in Costa Rica, plan on spending quite a bit of time on the road. Do yourself a favor and really put some time into researching where and what you’re hoping to go see. However, if hanging out at the beach and pool is what you’re after, I would highly recommend going here. The waves crashing at night were awesome to hear and it was very relaxing to sit by the pool or in the living/dining area at night.
We all loved and love the house, it has everything you need, basically you not even need to get out it. This is the second time we rent it and we will rent it again! Don Arturo is amazing, we’ll always be grateful with him for all the help and with Richard for the communication. Highly recommended!
Relaxing beach time
Casa Rector was a perfect fit for our group of 14. The pictures do not do it justice. The grounds are beautiful, Arturo does a great job maintaining them. Everyone had enough room to have their own space, but a great common area for meals and down time. And speaking of meals, Maribel's cooking was fabulous. We will miss Casa Rector as we treasure our memories of our time there.
We chose it to have down time at the beach and that is exactly what it was.
Wonderful Family Vacation Home!!!
This house was PERFECT for our group of 7. It honestly could have easily slept twice as many people. Each room has it's own bathroom (which is great when traveling with teenagers). The caretakers were WONDERFUL! No only did we arrive to a fully cooked dinner and drinks, but They accompanied us to the grocery store so we would know how to find it. They offered to cook for us, do our laundry and gave us so much helpful information while we were there. I loved how every evening they would walk through the outdoor space after we all went to sleep and would bring in any personal items left out.
Also we LOVED the dogs on the property. They were so sweet and well behaved. Our kids had so much fun hanging out with them.
The location of the home is wonderful. It is very close to plenty of things to do, but far enough away to be very quiet and serene. We used the pool for most of our swimming, but the ocean is steps away. We easily found plenty of restaurants and shops in walking distance, along with taking a few day trips to the local towns for ziplining, animal sanctuaries, and waterfall adventures.
Thank you so much for the wonderful stay Rich!!! You have been beyond helpful the whole way through our trip!
A great, sunny, fun place to hang out with friends, low-key style
We are four friends from (long-ago) college, and we had never been to Costa Rica before, and didn't know what to expect. Staying here was fun and easy, Arturo and Maribel, the caretakers, were kind and lovely. The owner connected us to Varso Travel, which made everything easy, from snorkeling in Tortuga to exploring volcanos—lunch included. Even on the hottest days, the pool was always welcoming. It is rustic—multiple beds per room, an extremely adorable puppy running around, no AC in the main eating area—but it was also comfortable and welcoming, with fresh cut-up fruit waiting for us when we arrived, and everyone willing to help us out whenever we asked. Michael of Varso Travel even brought us to a supermarket on the way back from the volcano so we could do a quick shopping trip. A really fun place to go.
Thank you for that great review. We do take pride in making someones vacation the best we can.

Beautiful house for large group/family vacation...beach and pool in the back yard!
Our group of 13 had a wonderful family vacation at this Costa Rican house that had everything. The home has 6 separate bedrooms, with 5 bathrooms, plenty of pool side and shady spots, as well as walk out to the sand and beach. The house was well laid out, clean and had a large common space with a table to seat our whole group. The house keeper Maribelle was amazing, and highly recommended for hire for daily services. Artour, the grounds keeper/security was also very helpful, diligent and kind to our family. Maribelle and Artour also helped us with shopping, arranging travel and navigation of the neighbourhood and attractions. They had diner and refreshments waiting for us when we arrived from the airport, and made all of us comfortable during our entire stay. The home owner Rich was very helpful prior to our trip, and also made several excellent recommendations for services ie Varso Travel for excursions and group outings as well as visiting near by town/beach for NYE fireworks to all celebrate together. Our group had so much fun and made such great memories at this house, we will long be grateful for this amazing spot and experience to share our time together. Thank you!! Laura :)
From the house it is very easy to make plans for sightseeing, fishing, rafting, and viewing the rain forest and volcanoes. A major hotel with a casino is located one mile from the house where all tourism plans can be made. The town of Jaco is a half hour by car south. It attracts many surfers for the beach's large waves and also tourists for its excellent restaurants and shops.
