Amazing stay in Jaco!
Christine S. from Santa Barbara, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2016 I cannot say enough about how great our stay was at the Mandolina. First of all the booking process and working with the staff was seamless and stress free. The house was amazing. We travelled with our 3 kids (14, 11, 9) and had more then enough space for everyone to spread out and be comfortable. The house was super clean and had everything you could possibly need for a great vacation. It is truly about 20 steps to the beach. We body surfed and boogie boarded right in front of the house and took surf lessons about 200 yards down the beach. We were there during a world surf competition (that was a surprise to us) but the location of the house is quiet and private so we could choose to be a part of the festival or hang out on what felt like our very own beach when we preferred. The town is walkable and if you are motivated you could walk to shops and food easily. We had rental car but could have lived in Jaco without it. Gabriel made reservations for us to take a catamaran ride to Tortuga Island and they picked us up right at the house as will many other tour providers. Gabriel was great about making recommendations for activities and helping us with making plans - super service and a really nice guy! My kids absolutely loved this place. The pool was warm and we had "pet" iguanas and lizards in the backyard that hung out and watched us at the pool. We would barely pull the car into the driveway from a day of adventure and the kids would jump into the pool and play until we dragged them out after dark. We enjoyed eating on the patio and listening to the waves outside our doorstep. Truly an amazing place and we brought home great memories.

Jill H. from Williamsburg, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2016 This house was awesome for six couples. Three bedroom with baths, decent kitchen and a good size living room. The pool an outdoor shower were great too. The location was a little sketchy. The house is across the road from a great surfing beach where the locals like to hangout. The house has large iron gates and a guard from 9am to 9 pm. (this may be normal for Costa Rica, I can't say) The rental company and in particular Gabriel were very professional and accommodating.
Property Manager Response: Response from BEACHHOME Costa Rica Rentals (Rock Property Management S.A.) Thank you for your comments. I'm sorry that you did not like the location. Most people will comment that the location is very convenient. Although it is a popular beach area, the area is very safe. The guard is really more for customer service than for security. Gabriel Rocha.
Allan V. from Heredia, Heredia recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2016 I stayed for a weekend with my family, location and facilities made the stay was very agradeble.The favorable conditions of the house and requeire hardly more than the intention to enjoy and relax. Safely would visit the place
Mark P. from Pensacola, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2014 We would never use anyone else to plan our vacations. Gabriel make everything easy and is always available if you have questions or concerns.
Todd E. from Taunton, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in January, 2014 This was our fourth trip to Costa Rica and second visit to Jaco. We have definitely found the ideal house and location and will be staying at the Casa Mandolina from now on!In addition to the comfortable home, location, private pool and front row seat to Costa Rican sunsets, it's just a few minutes walk to a local fish market, meat market, bakery and liquor store. Fully stocked supermarket just a bit further.Nothing better than cooking corvina(sea bass) on the grill with cerveza or sangria in hand and watching the sunset.Highly recommended!
Mark P. from Pensacola, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2013 washer and dryer were in dis-repair
Property Manager Response: Response from BEACHHOME Costa Rica Vacation Rentals Thank you for your comments. We checked the washer and dryer and they are working fine. We recently brushed and repainted their exterior to eliminate some rust build-up. Maybe you were referring to that. The laundry has no walls so they are exposed to the ocean breeze.
A guest from Battle Creek, Michigan recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in January, 2013 The only change Id like to see is a larger working radio,for the pool area. Great location and maintained well for its age.
Lance R. from Verona, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in January, 2013 Second stay at Casa Mandolina. Awesome!!! $2 cab ride to anywhere in town. Gabriel is the best and will take care of any/all of your needs or concerns. 10 out of 10.
Mark P. from Pensacola, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2012 Whenever Gabriel at BEACHHOME Costa Rica Vacation Rentals is involved with your stay, you can rest assured that there will be no problem with your stay and on the rare chance that something does goes wrong, it will be taken care of as soon as possible. The only problem is that I only wish he could be the manager at every place I go on vacation.
Mark P. from Pensacola, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2012 YOu can have a great rental property and a poor rental manager that makes your vacation a nightmare but not in this case. Gabriel always comes through with great properties and great service. If you really want a true vacation experience...call Gabriel
A guest from Winston-Salem, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2012 Overall my friend and I enjoyed the house and the jaco experience immensely. The house and the grounds were immaculate. The beach is only a few steps from the front gate and the views of the Pacific are etched in our memories ( we took plenty of photos in case dementia starts setting in).Only complaint is that the guards could have been a little more friendly. The guard we had on second day continued to stare into the kitchen from outside which was a little irritating. A small thing but something that could easily be remedied for next guests. We will be back and most likely at the same property.
Property Manager Response: Response from BEACHHOME Costa Rica Vacation Rentals Thank you for staying with at Casa Mandolina and for your comments. I apologize for the guard issue. The guard you mention was a off-day replacement. We will make sure this does not happen again. Gabriel Rocha, BEACHHOME Costa Rica Vacation Rentals
A guest from Vancouver, Washington recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2011 Loved the pool, the yard and the view. It is an older home. We had problems with the hot water and the A/C but repairs were made quickly, within a couple of hours. Gabriel at the property management office did a wonderful job of making sure our stay was comfortable.
Property Manager Response: Response from BEACHHOME Costa Rica Vacation Rentals Thank you for your comments Peggy. We hope to have you stay with us again soon! Gabriel Rocha, BEACHHOME Costa Rica Vacation Rentals
A guest from Burlington, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2011 Well maintained self-contained beachfront villa with all essentials. A bathroom for each bedroom definite plus. Within 10 minute walking distance to shops, restaurants, banks, grocery stores, car rental, tour operators etc. Even the Catholic church is a mere hundred metres away. Very quiet peaceful area unless it is a holiday weekend like Easter. Free internet, security guard and daily house cleaning also definite pluses. Could use a fresh seafood market in town for people who like to cook.

Danny C. from , Heredia recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2011 La Casa Mandolina es un lugar precioso acondicionado de la mejor manera para que el huesped no le falte nada, donde la persona se relaja todo el dia y si quiere algo de arena de mar, solo da unos pasos y listo.
Property Manager Response: Response from BEACHHOME Costa Rica Vacation Rentals Muchas gracias por sus comentarios. Los esperamos para una proxima vez! Gabriel Rocha, BEACHHOME Alquileres Vacacionales
Wade H. from Mercer Island, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in December, 2010 A wonderful experience and excellent accommodations for anyone looking for a beach house in Jaco! Gabreil was most hospitable and helpful, the maid service and security personnel were friendly and thorough in their efforts to take care of us. The house itself had all the amenities and we will definitely stay at Cas Mandolina our next trip to Jaco!
Property Manager Response: Response from BEACHHOME Costa Rica Vacation Rentals Thank you Wade! Looking forward to your next visit! Gabriel Rocha, BEACHHOME Costa Rica Vacation Rentals
Reviewed by: Vincent C. recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2010 Things we did not like. 1) The door in the bedroom did not open to the pool. 2) The grill did not have propane. 3) The security guard was on the property. No privacy. 4) He worked 9am to 9 pm. I think we need security at night. 5) Fence on front left no privacy.
Property Manager Response: Response from BEACHHOME Costa Rica Vacation Rentals Thank you for staying at Casa Mandolina and your feedback Vince. The grill did have propane and I showed you how to use it. If you could not work it all was needed was a call or asking the guard for help. We keep a spare tank at the house too. The bedroom door to the pool is left locked for security, we found many guests left it unlocked and left the house. This is not an issue. The guard is at the corner of the property but he respects your privacy. At night you have the security of the ADT alarm system. The fence is a picket fence that is intended to allow the view of the beach from the house. The pool area is not advertised for privacy. You knew all this because we showed you the house prior to your reservation. Gabriel Rocha, BEACHHOME CR.

Property Manager Response:
The 0 rating on Services from Rental Manager was just a typo :). However, the survey cannot be resubmitted. Here is the reply from the client: Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry! The service we received from you all was fantastic and your right, it was a typo. It should be the highest mark. I will submit it again. Sorry again...you guys were so helpful with everything, from getting us set up, making arrangements and reservations, to just general advice. I want to make sure you get the 5 you deserve.

Reviewed by: Matthew C. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2009 While our first home, Villa Jaco Sol, was less than satisfactory, Gabriel accommodated our request to upgrade to Casa Mandolina, which was a beautiful beachfront property and made the remainder of our trip highly enjoyable. Thanks again to the Beach Home Costa Rica team for the hospitality. We will definitely recommend your properties to our friends who travel to Jaco.
