This is such a beautiful home. The views of the ocean are breathtaking. I cannot say enough about our wonderful hosts. They were so attentive and helpful. I could not have asked for a better vacation. If you are looking for a place to get together with family and friends and have a magnificent time, this would be the place! We have already started making plans for our next visit. Thank you so much Heidi and Bryan!!!
your group was amazing, we really enjoyed having you. please come back soon Pura Vida Jack
There was 17 of us and the house and Cabina were perfect for our large family. Brian took care of all our trips and that was fantastic. Caught a 130lb Sailfish, what could be better than that.
Thank you so much for the kind words, we hope you come back soon. the monkeys miss you all Jack
The property is gorgeous. It was clearly designed to be a vacation rental, and the amenities are there to prove it. Love the bar area on the top floor. Lots of balconies. Lots of bathrooms. Great pool. Great access to the beach. Perfect place to watch sunsets every night. Hosts were very helpful and attentive. I've been to Costa Rica 3 times now, and this is the best place I've stayed.
The staff and folks in Jaco Costa Rica enjoyed having you all stay with us. we cant wait for you to return. please contact me directly for a special suprise when you return Pura Vida Jack 512-917-3500
We stayed here with our family of 19. Everyone said "this is the best holiday ever!" The house was unbelievable, it's even larger and more grand in person. The location couldn't have been better, we absolutely loved it. Everyday was spent on the beach and then running back to the pool for some shade and a refreshing dip in the pool! The rooftop bar was our favorite, it was our gathering place for drinks and supper at the end of the day while watching the amazing sunset. I can't say enough abut Bryan and Heidi, such wonderful, friendly, helpul hosts. It was so great having them around to ask questons, book tours when we needed or just to have a visit. Wouldn't have been the same vacation without them. Thank you Bryan and Heidi, we truly enjoyed meeting you and getting to know you, we will be back!!
Thank you so much for the kind words, all the staff really enjoyed your stay and we look forward to having you back soon jack
As the other reviews state - this property and team are amazing! The pictures don't really do it justice. It is perfectly situated on the most beautiful part of the beach, a quick walk or drive into downtown for groceries, and the backyard pool and grounds are meticulously kept. The house and cabina comfortably slept all 19 of us, and having the separate 'condos' was a great way to all stay together but have space if you needed it. Our daily gatherings on the rooftop bar for drinks and dinner for the spectacular sunset, and after dark were just great. We really don't know how we will top this place. Bryan and Heidi really are fantastic hosts, always willing to help with anything we needed. There were a few minor issues with appliances, and were always taken care of in a timely matter with a comment to Bryan. They were helpful and friendly. The surf school next door and their staff are also amazing, and our 9 kids took lessons the first day, then surfed every day after that! The instructors were awesome, and even helped the kids at other times if they were in the water at the same time throughout the week. We also had loungers and umbrellas on the beach every day if we wanted them - no need to get up at 4am and 'reserve' a chair like you do at All Inclusive Resorts - I loved that part. This is just a fantastic property with fantastic hosts, and we hope to be back soon!
thank you so much for staying with us, we really had a good time with you all. come back soon Jack
Our stay with Casa Iguana was really amazing! Best Holiday to date. The house was fabulous. Met all our needs and was comfortable for he 19 of us! Brian and Heidi were amazing, couldn't have been better at helping us navigate with whatever we needed. I have been raving about it since we got home and have already handed out the house info to friends! We will be back for sure!
Thank you so much for the kind words, we cant wait for you all to come back. glad you enjoyed Costa Rica and our home jack
This property on the best part of Jaco Beach is better in person than photos could ever show. Our whole family of 15 (adults and kids) thoroughly enjoyed all it had to offer. Plenty of room in the common spaces and lots of space for moments of privacy. The roof top deck was amazing! We spent every sunset and dinner up there as a family. The pool was great. If you love bird watching, pairs of macaws flew overhead every day and we spotted a toucan in the back, plus other interesting birds. We had a resident iguana in the climbing vine near the second floor deck that made an appearance every day. This property was clean, modern, well-equipped and comfortable. This is a great location from which we explored and enjoyed several fun excursions (jungle hikes, zip-lining, mangrove boat tour). Brian and Heidi were always available and very helpful. We all agreed we would definitely return and tell friends about this perfect spot right on the beach.
Beach view and access was fantastic - a couple of the grand children learned to surf board. Was happy to witness having all of my family together and their enjoyment. Bryan & Heidi were very helpful in getting us connected to the various tours and transportation requirements and looking after all the little things we needed. Access to town was simple and we visited often. Bird watching from balconies was appreciated - the crimson macaws are my favourite memory. There were many comments about returning some day. Jaco Beach is on the list.
the staff really loved you guys and cant wait for you all to come back again. stay in touch and Happy New Year Jack
We stayed in the entire house and loved our visit. It was great for our needs of 3 couples (1 with 2 kids) and 2 singles. It was more than enough space and it was nice to be able to spread out between the several units. We spent a lot of time at the rooftop bar enjoying the view and enough space for everyone. Coffee on the veranda overlooking the ocean was a wonderful way to start the day. We enjoyed our time in the ocean - the kids swam every day rain or shine. In Jaco we had a lovely dinner at Mono Verde and a good (for Costa Rica) beer selection at the Green Room. We found the house to be a great place to cook and cabs to/from the grocery store easy to take. The grounds and house were very clean and well maintained. Bryan and Heidi were so friendly and helpful. They arranged transport easily for our multiple groups, including a rather last minute trip for a monkey mangrove tour and a visit to Manuel Antonio. We would definitely (and have) recommend Casa Dias to friends!
We had so much space!! We rented the entire home, each floor is its own condo, so there was tons of room to spread out (no one ever had to wait to use the bathroom!) I loved that this whole property was ours for the week. We didn't have to wake up early to get a spot at the pool, or take turns sharing an out door grill.... it was all ours. Bryan was always eager to help us set up excursions and gave us some amazing dinner recommendations. Look no further, casa Dias is your dream Costa Rican destination.
This was by far the best vacation I have had. We had a large group (14) couples and single folks originally put together to celebrate 5 birthdays all around the same time. The property was absolutely perfect for a large group because everyone was able to have as much privacy as possible while at the same time large enough to all congregate together. Bryan and Heidi were amazing hosts and set us up with everything we needed with transportation, excursions, general questions, and fantastic dining recommendations! Lastly the location of the property was perfect and we were able to walk or take short cab ride everywhere we wanted. I would definitely go back to Costa Rica and I would book Casa Dias again!!! Great trip, fantastic memories! Thank you so much, Doug
You guys were amazing, we really enjoyed having you stay with us. your words are very kind. happy Holidays Jack
This house was terrific. Right there, beachfront. Just like it says, what a view from the roof! The people in charge of the house were very helpful with anything we needed. We were all very comfortable for the 5 days that we stayed. Rooms were great. The house is right where you want to be in Jaco, so that was also a bonus. Next time I take friends, I'm staying here again.
even the maids loved you guys. see ya next year Jack
Yes the picture was aluring, but this actually was real!!! Not to mention the surroundings , Ocean, Site Seeing, and so much more.....
the staff really enjoyed your stay, especially the Maids, they said they had nothing to clean up LOL. come back soon
I can only repeat most of the same positive feedback. the house (really a very upscale small building) is better than the pictures. I'll try to highlight some things others overlooked. Otherwise, you can read all the other positive feedbacks and I will agree 100%. - This house is on the best part (end) of Jaco beach. Jaco beach is the party beach of Costa Rica. But, with this location, you get a good mix of an active fun beach and seclusion you want during the beautiful sunset. - Bryan and Hiedi are fantastic hosts and the nicest Canadians you will ever meet. that is saying alot since every Canadian I've ever met is over the top cordial. - Very roomy. There are 3 floors broken out in 3 different condos starting at ground level. Floor 1 is a 1 bd condo, floor 2 is a 3 bdroom and floor 3 is a 2 bdroom. Floors 2 and 3 also have fold out double bed/couches. Our family got to separate into our own sub-families, so it worked out perfect. The top floor is huge cabana as you see in the pic. We had 25+ CR and US friends and family for a cook out with no space issue at the top. - place is super clean. U.S. VRBO rentals and hotels have a different set of 'minimum' cleanliness standards compared to CR. home is kept in a condition that rivals U.S. 4 and 5 star hotels. This is not common in Costa Rica. I would put it in the top 2 places I've stayed for cleanliness on VRBO rentals. - Internet and TV yes!!!! I was quite surprised. CR is not the US. Internet and TV are not 100% all the time there. For that matter electricity is hit and miss. - Walk to Jaco - For us the location was fantastic. The house is very close to the grocery store, shopping and CR small city culture restaurants. We never felt unsafe walking the ~1/2 mi. - The house is very secure. Front gates, doors to building and condos lock. felt very safe And some neutral things for travelers to be aware of: - Lots of stairs. If you are not ready to go up/down 3 and 4 flights of stairs several times per day, the place may not be for you. I put my mom on the ground floor 1 BD condo and it worked fine for the rest of our family. - Watch the kids. The railings at the top floor cabana and balconies are very secure, but have good size gaps for kids to get through. It is only that we have so many dumb parents and such a litigious culture in the U.S., I bring this up. If you're the guy with a PI attorney uncle and dumb kids... Allen
This property is truly amazing. The pictures do not do it justice. The property is well kept and an oasis if you do not want to take advantage of (but you will), the beach that is right out front. The quick walk into Jaco made it easy to enjoy the restaurants and shopping. Brian and Heidi were a great help with the excursions that we wanted to take and you can tell they take great pride in making a guests stay memorable. We are already planning our return.
We stayed here 4 nights and absolutey loved it. Brian and Hedi are great, they helped us out with tours and recommended the best restaurats in town. It's right on the beach and there's an awesome surf camp next door, super convienant for board rentals and lessons. It's pretty much the best house on the beach. Private pool in the back, great for chilling out and relaxing after surfing or other activies.
The house was even better than in the pictures. It's directly on the beach (which was great for surfing). The house was in great condition. Clean and really well maintained with everything in stock. The pool is in the back in the house and was also very nice and clean. Bryan the host was super friendly and helpful. We will certainly be back.
This is the perfect place for several families to share. We were very impressed with the layout. Each floor is basically an apartment with living room, full kitchen and separate bedrooms. The first floor is a little smaller, great for a couple. Floors 2 and 3 have a 2nd bathroom in the master bedroom with larger living area and kitchen. The Casita is one side of a duplex shared with the folks that manage the place. It's very private though. There are bunk beds in same space as small kitchen and a 3rd bed in a small closed off room. A family of 4 in our group stayed in that comfortably. We've rented lots of vacation rentals, and I was so pleased to see the storage available in each room. There are drawers and closet space to spare after you unpack... and by the way, don't over pack. I didn't wear half of what I brought (it's hot walking around town and only a few restaurants have A/C) and they have a washer/dryer in each apt. Every floor has its own deck with beautiful views of the beach and sunset! By far, the best thing about this house, is the 4th floor bar. We absolutely loved it! Other than spending our evenings there, there is enough room for all families to share meals on the 4th floor. We will be back!
Beautiful property......landscaping, pool, rooms all just lovely. Located on beach not far from town. Had a great time! Bryan and Heidi were wonderful. Will set up any excursions you could want. Would not hesitate to rent Casa Diaz again!
Dear Traveler, Thank you very much for the kind words, and great feedback! We are excited to hear that you found the accommodations to be impressive, along with the rather convenient location of the property, and the management team as well. More than anything, we are really pleased you all had a lovely getaway vacation and enjoyed your stay with us at Casa Dias. We hope to see you all again on your next trip to Costa Rica! All the best, Jack
It was great!! The house is beautiful and has 6 bedrooms and then has a guest house which is great!! Every floor has a kitchen and dining room with a living area. So nice and spacious, beach is right across the street!! Gated also no problems there with coming or going. Very clean and maintained by the mangers who helped with every detail, they are a excellent couple! Would stay there again!
In Costa Rica for a wedding. Booked this home for a week. It's perfect and across the lane from the beach. An easy cab ride into town. The units are great, landscaping beautiful , pool too. Heidi and Brian who manage are a wealth of knowledge and very helpful. Looking forward to returning one day.
Dear Janice, Thank you so much for you wonderful feedback. We're glad you and the rest of the wedding party had a blast during your stay with us at Casa Dias. We hope you all come back to Costa Rica and visit us again soon! Sincerely, Jack
Oh Casa Dias, if only I could have stayed forever. The property was beautiful : so quiet and serene in the back by the pool (plus lots of shade), and right out the front gate the sunny beach awaits you. Bryan was usually nearby & always friendly and helpful. Because we had a large group, we had to coordinate sharing of the keys to the property. And yes, the beds are very firm. I appreciated the telescope available for use on the rooftop! I loved the location because it's further away from the town, yet still easy to navigate by foot or taxi. Overall, it was a dream of a vacation & I would love to go back to Jaco!
Ocean front, loved hearing the waves! Spacious and comfortable accommodations. Loved the roof top entertaining space. The property was safe and secure. Lovely private pool. An unforgettable vacation!
Thank you so much for the kind words and feedback, Sashee. We appreciate your stay with us and more importantly, that you all had a fabulous time. Hope to see you all again soon! Best wishes, Jack
This house was perfect for our family while we visited Jaco for our wedding. The owners Bryan and Heidi were outstanding, they made sure we had everything we needed at all times. I want to go live here full time! If you need more space make sure to look at Hotel Nine next door to the house. The staff there are just as great and the accommodations are right on par. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO TOOK SUCH GOOD CARE OF US!
Dear Duncan, Thank you so much for the kind words and feedback! We truly appreciate you all staying with us and more importantly, that you and the rest of the wedding party had a fabulous time. It was our pleasure to accompany you all on your special day. Please come back and see us again soon! Best wishes, Jack
Casa Dias (or Iguana) was a bautiful spot. Clean, quiet, well maintained. Bryan and Heidi were the perfect hosts. They were easy to contact when we needed and essentially invisible otherwise. Didn't even know they had a sweet little dog Boston til 3 days in! The pool was spotless and a nice retreat from the beach side of the property. The grounds and rooms were well maintained and you could tell how much pride Heidi and Bryan take in how things look and run. The pictures are accurate but can't even begin to show what sunsets look like from the roof top patio. We would definately recommend this property to those looking for a larger private property for family or group of friends!
The property is beautiful and well maintained. The beds are quite firm so be prepared. One issue which could be addressed is security. It was a bug hassle with keys and would suggest a key box or push code. Your caretakers were kind and helpful and super friendly. We loved the surf factory lessons and the Jaco VIP was very important to navigate our large group. Back yard pool was a great and beautiful option for evening gathering as well as the decks for sunsets. As far as our experience with Hotel 9, that was extremely disappointing. Lack of follow through with the wedding couples plans, no restaurant and bar, this caused a lot of distress for the wedding party. They figured it out but was stressful for those involved. Be sure to verify, verify before you come if you are planning on renting for a wedding.
We had a group of 12 and we were all impressed by the house, the beach and the views. The house was laid out perfectly for our group. I did not grasp the layout of the house until we arrived. The house is essentially laid out as three separate living areas on different levels with one bedroom on the ground floor, three bedrooms on the second floor and two bedrooms on the third floor. All living areas had separate kitchens and living areas. The stairs lead to the entry on the outside of each living area yet still in the house. This was very nice as our group was together, yet still had some privacy. The 7th bedroom is essentially a cabana on the other side of the pool. The roof of the house offers spectacular views. The pool in the back is private. We loved it. The location of the house is ideal. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance and you can make it downtown in you don't mind longer walks. Otherwise, taxis are very affordable. A car was only $2-$3 and a van was $6-$8. 12 passenger vans to the airport are $100 each. We required two of the them. Well worth not getting three rental cars. Vans to the Los Suenos marina were $50 round trip. Taxis would save you $5 - $10 at most. Bryan and Heidi were very helpful and accommodating. They helped us with arranging our excursions as well as transportation. It was nice having them nearby as they made the entire trip easier. Our group is looking forward to another stay here.
Everything about this place is perfect. It has tons of space and plenty of rooms. The view is amazing being right on the beach. The location is great with the option of a 20 min walk to town or 5 min drive. This is the place to stay if visiting Jaco, Costa Rica.
Dear James, Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. We value our customer’s feedback, and are always thrilled to hear when they are pleased with their experience at our vacation property. Thank you again, and we will be very happy to welcome you guys again in the very near future. Sincerely, Jack
We were a family of 14 and spent the week between Christmas and New Year. Everything about the house was great! Large space and grounds and having multiple kitchens was a plus. Also, the use of washers and dryers. Pool/area was very well maintained and waterfall was always on. We especially enjoyed the rooftop bar and entertaining area. It was a great spot for family to gather for meals or just get together. House is located about a 15min walk into town or a $3.00 cab ride. Also there is great outdoor restaurant within a short walk from the house. The Beach was a good spot for beginner surfers. The management team (Bryan and Heidi) were wonderful to us. Everything from arranging transportation to/from airport, answering any questions , and arranging several excursions. We would definitely recommend Casa Dias and would love to go back . Diane S
Dear Diane, Thank you very much for the kind words, and great feedback! We are excited to hear that you found the accommodations to be impressive, along with the great location of the property, and the management team. More than anything, we are really pleased you and your family had a lovely holiday and enjoyed your stay with us at Casa Dias. We hope to see you all again on your next trip to Costa Rica! All the best, Jack
The pictures we received didn't do the house justice. It was even better than we expected. We had a group of twelve and it fit our needs perfectly. Brian and Heidi are the best! They really took excellent care of our needs and requests. Would definitely recommend this home.
Dear Robin, Thank you so much for the kind words and feedback! We truly appreciate you guys staying with us and more importantly, that you all had a fabulous time. It was our pleasure to accompany you all with the best vacation possible while out in Jaco. Please come back and see us again soon! Best wishes, Jack
Pros: beautiful house & property. Perfect location. Cons: the husband and wife who live in the house behind the rental are not professional and made our vacation very stressful. The only way for them to get to their house to enter thru the rental. Bryan (the husband) uses his ATV early every morning which wakes up the house. He also would go thru the house when we were away and turn the AC off. I understand saving energy but to return home to a very hot space is awful (especially for my pregnant wife), Bryan said that it costs too much for the AC and that we needed to use it sparingly...The management couple made rude comments to us, to a hired third party (local) and do not know how to manage a luxury rental. They acted childish and acted annoyed every time we asked for anything (we did not have access to turn the pool waterfall on or use beach chairs without going to find them and seemingly interrupting their lives. They also have a dog which barks a lot and was found in our rental once when we returned home. These are just a few of the things that we experienced while staying at Casa Dias/Casa Iguanuas. I would highly recommend picking another spot if you want a restful & luxurious Costa Rican vacation. The management couple needs to take a course on how to treat guests, how to interact with others and boundaries, not professional and certainly not what you expect when you pay top dollar for a luxury rental.
Dear Guest, Thank you for your review of the property in Jaco. I am very concerned with these comments, and I promise you that I will personally look into this and address these issues where need be. I’m so sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience as I hope you know that was truly not our intention. We appreciate your feedback and, and hope you accept our sincere apology from myself and the whole staff. Feel free to reach out to me directly if there is anything we can do to help remedy your experience. Jack
Everything you will need for your getaway to Costa Rica. Beautiful and very well maintained. Very easy surfing accessibility. Great breakfast just a short distance down the beach. Management is superb helping with our every need. Can't wait to book another trip!
Dear Mike, Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. We value our customer’s feedback, and are always thrilled to hear when they are pleased with their experience at our vacation property. Thank you again, and we will be very happy to welcome you guys again in the very near future. Sincerely, Jack
My group was completely blown away by how beautiful the house was, truly lost in paradise. Bryan was wonderful, had a car service ready at the airport to pick us up upon arrival. He also scheduled all activities and and provided a car service that was always on time and very accommodating. We are all talking about when we are going to go back and referring to all of our friends. I personally recommend staying here without any reservation, the picture do not do the property justice. Looking forward to our next trip to Casa Iguana in South Beach, Costa Rica.
Dear Jerry, Thank you very much for the kind words and comments about our property and staff. We are excited to hear that you found the accommodations to be impressive, along with the great location of the property, and the management team. More than anything, we are really pleased you and your guests had a lovely vacation celebration and enjoyed your stay with us at Casa Dias in Jaco. We hope to see you all again on your next trip to Costa Rica! All the best, Jack
