what our guests say


Jip’s place was beautiful on a stunning property with views of the mountains, wildlife, and the rainforest. Jip was kind enough to meet us in dominical and show us to the property and explain everything to us. The actual house was so beautiful and romantic, we would have loved to stay langer! lt was also in a good location near the waterfalls and about 15 min drive from Dominical.
Thanks Jip!


Un tres bei endroit entoure d’oiseaux. La maison est tres bien equipee et tres propre. Pleins de decouvertes a faire autour.


Unser Aufenthalt in der Paradise Lodge war buchstäblich paradiesisch. Wir wurden herzlich von Jürgen und Jorge empfangen und haben zahlreiche Tipps für Ausflüge und Restaurants erhalten. ,,Hausmeister” Jorge hat sogar zwei mal für uns gekocht (es war unglaublich lecker) und eine tolle Führung zum versteckten Wasserfall auf dem Grundstück gegeben. Die Außenküche war ganz toll, ein herrliches Gefühl, draußen zu kochen. Vor dem Häuschen kann man ins Tal blicken und zahlreiche Tiere, wie Tukane, Schmetterlinge, Frösche und Echsen beobachten. Es kommt ein richtiges Urwaldfeeling auf, gemischt mit wohliger Gemütlichkeit. Wirklich toll, vielen Dank für alles, Jürgen und Jorge!


Excellent location with a breath taking view. Jip is an outstanding host who was there to assist us whenever we needed it. This area offers endless opportunities to explore and experience the beauty of Costa Rica without overwhelming tourists. The waterfall is literally 2 minute drive down the road and the coast is roughly 15 minute drive. Thank you again Jip for an amazing stay.


Sfeervol ingerichte ruimte en uitzonderlijk voor Costricaanse begrippen een warme douche. Vanuit deze lokatie kan je de mooiste uitstapjes maken zoals een wandeling naar de watervallen slechts op 500 meter is de ingang. En niet te vergeten de prachtig verborgen stranden, vraag Jip hoe daar te komen. Kortom een top plek.


l’m so happy I choose this place, so beautiful and well taken care of. Thank you so much for having me.


This place is very clean and spacious for its size. Beautiful location in the middle of the jungle and very peaceful. Jip is very responsive and friendly. Would definitely recommend this place!


Tode estuvo muy bien, desde la respuesta cuando reservamos, se nos contacto luego para dar indicaciones de c6mo llegar y nos espero en la entrada para darnos la bienvenida, las instalaciones muy limpias, 100% como se ve en las fotos, se vefan las estrellas espectacular, desde la terraza hay muy buena vista, se puede apreciar la catarata Nauyaca desde ahf con binoculares, en medio de naturaleza, llevar repelente ya que hay bastantes insectos! muchas gracias!


Un sejour memorable dans la Junglehouse pour notre famille de3. On avait la visite des toucans a tous les matins et en fin d’apres-midi. On se sentait vraiment dans la jungle! Nous avons beaucoup apprecie l’es recommandations et discussions avec Jorges.


The place is amazing, and Jip is super positive, helpful, smiling a lot and helpful!


Great host, the place is beautiful and really close to the waterfall and to some really nice beaches 🙂


Beautiful, round, virtually new room, with the best bed and linens of the many places we stayed in CR. The adjacent bathroom is stylish too, and the kitchen has all we needed to cater for ourselves. Though the place is 12 minutes drive from Dominical, it is much higher and therefore much cooler at night for sleeping. Jip was very helpful at our arrival, and Jorge looked after us during our stay. Recommended.


Jip was amazing, we got in very late and he waited for us at the entrance to show us to the bungalow. The space gave us the real Costa Rica experience. Waking up and opening your front door to the amazing view is indescribable. We ended up staying there during cicada season, which was a surprise, but it added to the real jungle feel 😉 Overall, we really enjoyed our “glamping” experience at the Yoga Bungalow.


Merveilleux sejour a deux. Cet endroit est magique.on a pu apercevoir un toucan, un morpho, des grenouilles la nuit, et quelques autres petites surprises. L’accueil est au niveau de la beaute du paysage.


This Bungalow was a little piece of heaven! Absolutely amazing way to take in the views of Costa Rica and the Dominical Region! lf you love nature this is the place for you! PS the outdoor shower is fantastic!! lt allowed us to escape into nature and tour the area! The Bungalow is minutes away from Nauyaca Waterfalls, Playa Dominical, Quepos, Uvita, Several National Parks, and Whale Tail! lt’s a must stay! We will be coming back again! Couples if you are looking for a little romance this Bungalow is for you!!


The house was amazing, it’s very unique and it is so much nicer than it looked on the pictures, we were very confortable in there. Jip was a great host, really friendly and attentive since we got there. And Gaya their dog, is so sweet, she was a perfect companion for us. We enjoyed our stay and we would totally recommend this house if you’re looking for a peaceful, surrounded by nature place to relax and spend your vacation

Jip thank you so much for taking us on the best personal tour, the waterfalls! It´s been fantastic stuff! Our room was fantastico. Keep doing what you are doing, pura vida! Playa Arco was the best! Your place exceeded my expectations – so lovely. I enjoyed watching the hummingbirds in the morning and got to see a toucan on a tree nearby. Thank you very much for sharing your paradise with us! Awesome place, awesome tour, awesome WIFI. Keep on rocking.

We had an amazing stay here at Paradise Lodge. Our stay started with an adventure: our first praying mantis sighting which led to many laughs. There is nothing that compares to the view from the deck and the home is beautiful. Thank you! We will absolutely recommend to friends!

Family the Kroos from the Netherlands

Our time here was absolutely perfect! The bungalow is great, luxurious and the environment is so good! We went on a whalewatching trip organized by Jip – only 4 people on the boat and not expensive. We saw whales, so great! Also we went to the Nauyaca Waterfalls – worth it – and the whale tail, both very beautiful to visit. Thank you Jip and good luck with your beautiful place.

Joost & Edith from the Netherlands

We had a great time in this lovely bungalow. The balcony is really nice and the environment is very beautiful. We loved the little Rio Canopy tour, it was a lot of fun. Also we found the secret beach you recommended, Playa Arco. Thanks a lot for hosting us!

Patrick & Carren from North Carolina, USA

Wow, what an incredible time! Thanks to Jip for the accommodations, suggestions and around the clock service. Playa Arco was everything you said and more. We made so many wonderful memories and look forward to returning! We love your Dog Gaya!

Chris, Mariam, Bar, Orla, Sophia

We had an amazing time. If there weren´t other areas of Costa Rica we wanted to see, we would have stayed forever. The setting and scenery is breathtaking, the bungalow is fantastic and, above all, Jip and Jorge have been wonderful hosts. This stay could not have been better and we all hope to return one day. The area has everything easily available: forests, beaches, waterfalls. Jip gave great advice about where to go – thank you!

Karen & Carl from England

What a gurky place!!! We had four wonderful nights in the Jungle Bungalow, watching the birds and bugs from our balcony and waking up tot he soundso f the jungle. We hat a great time on Jip´s 2-hour-hike. Wading through crystal clear waters and enjoying the tranquility only made better by seeing a sloth (the first of our trip)!!! Jip was the perfect host and had great suggestions of places we could visit. We only wish we could build a round house like this at home!!

Emil and Linda from Norway

Three fantastic days in paradise! We had such an amazing time here in Paradise Lodge! Our host Jip made our stay fantastic. He gave us a two hours hike in the jungle. He gave us really good information about places to visit and things to do. He also is specialist in massage therapy! His dog „Gaya“ is amazing and loving. We really felt like home and never wanted to leave. Thank you Jip, we will be back!
