After a couple of days visiting NYC, we enjoyed the quietness of the Flying Monkey and Dominical. A lovely house with a soul and equipped well to be active during the day and embrace the late afternoons at the terrace. Despite rain season we loved our stay at the Flying Monkey.
Been here twice. Will come back again!
Great location for getting away from the touristy crowds (but not so far that you can't get to them when you feel the need!). Great scenery and wildlife views from the upper patio and the lower pool deck. Great beaches, restaurants and lots of activities near by. Hiking to the reservoir every morning was my favourite way to start the day. Always heard or saw monkeys, Toucans, Trogons ... well almost always. We met the owners. Really nice people! Looking forward to our next stay there.
We’re so happy you enjoyed the Flying Monkey for your second time. Can’t wait to welcome you for the third time. The Flying Monkey - and we - love it when you choose the Flying Monkey.
An Amazing Vacation for a Young Family
Thank you for such a memorable family trip. The stay at your Villa was beyond expectation. We are a young family with a 5 year old, a 3 year old and an 8 month old baby. We also brought along our children’s grandparents. We found the villa to be an excellent size for all of us. The two older children slept comfortably on the fouton while each couple had their own spacious air-conditioned bedroom, bathroom and spectacular view of the infinity pool and luscious jungle beneath. The playpen fit comfortably in our room without blocking a path for us to move around. We also were able to set up a change table on a built in desk in the room.
The Flying Monkeys concierge service took amazing care of us. Prior to traveling, we were able to confirm rental of car seats, a playpen and even a high chair. Further, all of this was set up for us upon arrival. We were also pleasantly surprised to find a bin for children at the Villa that included puddle jumpers (similar to water wings and life jacket combined), a baby pool floaty, some fun beach toys and even a baby monitor which was an absolute bonus. We were able to play in the pool with the older kids while the baby slept. The monitor was also appreciated at night. While the adults played games on the deck, we could listen out for the kids. The laundry room was used often, as well, as you can imagine, when traveling with 3 young children.
Some highlights from our trip included visiting Reptilandia where the kids got to see snakes, monitor lizards and even comono dragons. We also loved walking through Manuel Antonio National Park. The kids couldn’t believe how close we were to the monkeys. One day we went for a hike nearby and heard howler monkeys. In fact, my son was able to replicate their sound and started to communicate with them! We also loved the restaurants nearby. The service was always kind, respectful and the food was absolutely 5 star. We especially loved Fuego, Phat Noodle and Jolly Roger.
We highly recommend your villa to young families looking for adventure. Not only did our children live in your pool but were constantly entertained by the wildlife present just outside the villa or even sometimes right on the deck like the iguanas, the Aracari birds (similar to a toucan), the white faced monkeys, the agoutis (similar to a capabara) and green parrots that we learned always travel in pairs. The lightning bugs were even thrilling to them too! To fellow families, we recommend the use of carriers.
Third time at the Flying Monkey
This is our third stay at the Flying Monkey and we continue to be amazed. We have two young children and the villa is well stocked, easy for at home meals and includes all the amenities to feel right at home. The infinity pool is spectacular and feels like an oasis. Short walk to the ocean and exciting family adventures near by - Reptilandia, Boogie boarding, horseback riding. We saw monkeys, toucans, iguanas and agoutis all in our back yard. Sunshine daily with breathtaking views. We cannot say enough positive things about our exceptional stay and will definitely be back!
NO POTABLE WATER, NO RUNNING WATER, NO REFUND AS PROMISED
STAY AWAY from the Flying Monkey! We had no potable water for our entire stay, but nobody bothered to tell us it wasn’t potable so we got sick on the first day of our stay. We then only had intermittent water of any kind for the last four days of our stay, and it was often brown and disgusting, and only came on late in the evenings and/or early morning. The owners are very dishonest and unethical — we were promised in writing that we’d get a refund for every day we were without water, which was 4 days (setting aside the potable water problem). We only asked for 3 days, but were only refunded 2 days. The owners then lied to HomeAway about what transpired, and HomeAway refused to help us. The owners are liars, the property management company, Villas by Tekoa, stinks, and HomeAways guarantees are worthless. Really awful people all around.
On the 8th night of this guest’s 9-night reservation, we received an email from him stating, in part: “Your villa is beautiful, and we’ve had a wonderful time, until now … You both have been great to deal with, your home is wonderful … Your property manager, Olmer, has been very responsive and is trying very hard.”
Indeed the water pump that supplies the 38 villas had been stolen on that day. Although this guest’s final night’s stay was complimentary as part of our agreement, we generously immediately sent him a refund for two full nights’ stay. He was provided with bottled water and was offered alternate accommodation, which he declined.
This guest then insisted on receiving double the money we paid him, all of the fees charged by HomeAway, and all of the concierge/cleaning fee received by our property manager. In return for this money, he stated that he would not post a negative review. The request was extreme and so all parties declined … and this is the dishonest review he posted.
Please read all of our reviews as we pride ourselves in guest satisfaction.
There was a sign posted at the front gate, stating that we were on “River Water – Do Not Drink”, so indeed the renters were all aware of the water situation.
We are happy to report that our water has now been tested and, as a result of a great filtration/UV system in the Canto del Mar community, it is rated as top quality, potable water.
My family enjoyed our stay at the Flying Monkey and left with wonderful memories. Clean, well appointed, and with an amazing view there was nothing left that we needed during our stay. Olmer, the concierge, was amazing as he helped to make the reservations for our activities and made sure we know where and when to go. Highly recommend the Flying Monkey.
