“Loved this place! The description is super accurate, it is a bit out of town (about 15 minute drive) but we knew that going into it. We didn't want to feel like we were at a resort, but we kind of did because it was just an amazing feel at this place and it was all ours. Norwin provided so much information before our trip and was always available during. My husband was worried about the bugs with being outside so much, we didn't need any bug spray while here and it was fantastic! The bedroom is tight as pictured, but if you know and are ready for it you will enjoy! I was celebrating my birthday and they left a sweet note on the chalkboard, a balloon and sweet note with a flower and chocolates on the bed that was such a sweet touch. Norwin is a fantastic host all the way through.”

“This place is literal paradise!!!! I don’t even know where to start with how amazing Jason’s place is. Ok- I’ll start with the pool. The pictures on here don’t even do it justice. Surrounded by the most beautiful flowers and scenery, with a SWIM UP BAR!!!! And beautiful hot tub just feet away!!! This is the only place we stayed in Costa Rica where the inside of the house was just as beautiful as the outside. Gorgeous waterfall showers, beautiful bedroom with a huge window overlooking the outdoors and remote controlled shade, top notch air conditioning- this was definitely the most comfortable house we stayed in during our week and a half in Costa Rica. Check in was seamless- I let our host know when we were about an hour away and he was waiting at the house for us when we arrived ready to show us around. Location was great- I saw a couple reviews of this house that complained about the distance of this house from the town of La Fortuna and I couldn’t disagree more! It was an easy ten minute drive to town- drove there every single night we were in the area. It says a 4x4 is recommended to get to the house, but I don’t think one is. The road is gravel but mostly flat and TRUST ME- we stayed in houses where you had to drive up a 60 degree hill that made coming and going a pain, but it was so easy to come and go from Jason’s. A bit about the services this house provides- I wasn’t expecting that our Airbnb host was going to set up activities for us but we ended up setting up two things through him (though we had more options to choose from than we could have possibly accomplished during our time there.) the first was a sloth watching tour where a guide took us around a hiking path with a telescope and pointed out seven different sloths!! The second was setting up massages and facials AT THE HOUSE!!! This was honestly maybe the most luxurious thing I’ve ever done in my life. There were four of us and four masseuses walked in carrying their tables, set up pool side, gave great service (I did Swedish massage and volcano mud facial, both were great)- literally laying in a tropical forest looking up at the stars. And this was all for a VERY reasonable price. Obviously if you are coming to this area there is a 99% chance you’re a tourist and the services that Jason provides made things so easy and were so affordable and unique!!! My only regret is not staying longer!!”

“We were with our two children (10 months, 4 years) in Erik's house. We felt very comfortable and could really relax. The large pool with slide was of course the highlight and not just for the children. Since we got into the middle of the covid-19 crisis and everything was closed, we asked Hector (the housekeeper) if we could not stay until the afternoon and he said yes without hesitation. So we could still enjoy a wonderful last day. The house is lovingly furnished and you will find everything you need to cook and relax. The terrace is very lovingly designed and you can relax wonderfully. We would love to come back.”
