A guest from Crofton, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in March, 2016 My girlfriend and myself stayed about a week at Villa Las Monas. When we checked in, we were given an inventory sheet that listed, down to the individual utensil, all the things in the house.When we left, the property manager emailed us and said "We're only missing 1 scotch glass, 1 kitchen knife and 2 small plastic containers, according to our inventory." I had spent around $3000 for the rental, and was being accused of taking these trivial items, which, of course, I had not.I would warn anyone who wants to stay their to take the 90 minutes it would consume to go through the entire inventory and make sure all the stuff is actually there. Otherwise you risk getting accused of common theft.
Property Manager Response: Response from BEACHHOME Costa Rica Rentals (Rock Property Management S.A.) Hello Robert, I am very sorry that you feel that way. I never accused you of stealing those items and it was never my intention to do so, not even imply it. I did say I would not charge you for them. We realize items sometimes go missing during a stay because they get thrown away by mistake or break by accident. Those items are typical examples of that and I was only informing you of our findings. We keep a detailed up to date inventory and we know those items were missing. However, they did not warrant a charge. We actually always suggest that our clients check the inventory upon check-in. Gabriel Rocha.
Jonathan M. from Chicago, Illinois recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2013 We stayed here the week of Christmas/New Years with our 3 kids (6,4,2). It was the perfect "base" for us as we explored the Pacific Coast. As others noted this house is a bit away from the main part of Jaco, but if you have a car it was about 5 minutes at most. For us this was not a problem as our kids are too young to want to be in the middle of everything and my wife and I enjoyed the peace and quiet(when they kids were sleeping). The backyard was beautiful with the pool in the center and with lots of trees with constant visits from beautiful birds, insects and even a nice frog on our last night. The pool was the perfect size for out little ones and also the perfect temperature. If you want sun you can use the nice pool furniture to get a tan, but if you prefer the shade there is plenty of that too. The weber kettle grill in the back was a nice touch too.The house it self was very well equipped with all of the comforts of home. Each room had it's own AC unit and ceiling fan which worked well. The kitchen was well stocked with just about every pot, pan, utensil, etc. There was continuous hot water. The house had cable and internet, although the internet was down sometimes(apparently due to the influx of tourists this time of year) The washer/dryer worked very well too. We were able to eat at least 2 meals a day at the house which was a big money and time saver. Also as an aside note there are multiple grocery stores around. The "Maxi-Pali" which is a smaller version of a Walm-mart(and owned by them as well) was about 3 minutes away. They had everything from pool toys to fresh produce to beer and more.Gabriel, who manages this property was always responsive and helped us with a few tour bookings and suggestions. If we needed anything he was always available.Overall it was a great place and we would do it again.
Property Manager Response: Response from BEACHHOME Costa Rica Vacation Rentals Thank you Jonathan! We would love to have your family stay with us again! Gabriel
Richard and Diane C. from Pensacola, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 92 days in November, 2012 We enjoyed the house and privacy enclosed clear pool. The property manager, Gabriel was always available and helpful. The location was a bit out and either a car or bikes are necessary. Otherwise, we were very happy with the house and Gabriel.
Lamar S. from Florence, South Carolina recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2011 We had an amazing time as a family during our time there. My kids were in the pool from sun up to after the sun went down. I a beach view girl, but LOVED the view in the back yard with the mountain and the cattle grazing! I felt like we were alone on an island! It was quiet, clean, and spacious for us and my only complaint, was we didn't stay long enough. Thanks again for everything. I know we will be calling on you again.

Property Manager Response: Response from BEACHHOME Costa Rica Vacation Rentals I truly apologize for the inconvenience, however, you did not inform us of this problem until you departed so there was nothing we could have done to solve it. We would have never expected you to stay at the house without water. We would have either found replacement accommodations or refunded your money entirely. We found out later there was indeed a problem with the local water utility company that was solved the day you left. We are quoting a water holding tank for the house to avoid these problems in the future. Sincerely, Gabriel Rocha, BEACHHOME CR Vacation Rentals
