                                DIDN'T WANT TO COME HOME!!

                                5 of 5
                                We arrived March 3rd and stayed for nearly 3 weeks with our 3 kids, ages 9, 5 and 2. The house was all that we had anticipated and more!! Spotless and well-maintained, it was equipped with everything we needed. Aside from a 3 day road trip to Arenal Volcano - which, by the way, we high recommend - particularly the Arenal Hanging Bridges guided walk where we saw a Margay (small jungle cat) among many other wildlife - we spent our time in Carrillo and Samara casually. We started the day with breakfast on the upstairs balcony, followed by a swim in the pool before the sun got too high, and then off to Playa Carrillo. We can't say enough good things about Playa Carrillo - secluded, quiet (even on the weekends, when the locals used the beach, it was far from crowded by any standards), clean and safe. The water is like bathwater and the surf gentle enough on most days that our younger ones could safely play near the shore. Playa Samara was also a lovely beach, however a bit busier than Carrillo on a weekend, but certainly deserted compared to what a resort beach often looks like. As any homeowner well knows, there can sometimes be problems. We had a problem with the latch on the front door but Melissa at Samara Rentals had a handyman to the house asap and the problem was resolved within 30 minutes or so. We also had a problem with the washer, but again, this was resolved rapidly and satisfactorily. Because we had quick resolution of these issues, they had little effect on our enjoyment of the house, and I didn't feel they should detract from my 5 star rating. One thing I think is worth mentioning for those who have small children/toddlers - the cliff edge of the property has just a low fence made of wires, so we had to be very vigilant with our 2 year old when we had her outside. Also the balcony rails are horizontal and climbable, so we regretfully had to keep the gate closed at all times, as our daughter is a climber! All in all, though, small prices to pay for a few weeks in paradise! We loved just living in the community, shopping in the local Mercados and getting a taste of the Tico lifestyle. We also recommend the local restaurant El Colibri - an argentinian steakhouse, just a short walk into the main street of Carrillo. Lovely staff, delicious and reasonably priced dinners and according to my husband, the tenderloin was the best steak he's ever had.

                                OFF THE BEATEN PATH

                                5 of 5
                                We stayed at Villa Serena for a week at the beginning of May. It is about an hour and a half from Liberia airport at the end of the road going through Playa Carilllo. I drank water out of the taps and had no issues but there are plenty of small stores in the area to purchase food, drinks and alcohol. Hint: Purchase your hard liquor at the airport. Cheaper for some reason, I think taxes. The home itself is sitting on a cliff about 50 feet above a small beach. Every now and then locals would use it and go sit on the rocks to watch the waves crash, but most of the time, you have it to yourself. The beach is a short walk down a moderate pathway and if you ventured out onto the rocks you get to view some wonderful sunsets. The waves crashing on the rocks was constant and the sound carried throughout the home. All the amenities in the home were high end and in very good working order including the pool. Three of the four bedrooms were nice size with their own bathrooms, one was much smaller and would have to use one of the other baths. We have been to CR several times and I must say that Denisse provided the most information about the surrounding area and things to do of all the VRBO homes that we have rented. This home also had the best views of our stays and the best feeling of seclusion. Modesto and Marcia were wonderful and attentive without being intrusive.

                                THE "CHARMER" ON THE PACIFIC

                                5 of 5
                                My wife, daughter, her husband, and I just returned from a wonderful Costa Rica vacation! The owner, Jacqueline, was so helpful and gave us impeccable directions as well as answering any questions we had prior to our arrival. We had planned to do some touring around Costa Rica, but our kids said they would rather stay at the Casa for the entire week after they saw what it had to offer. And we did. Ana prepared whatever we wanted for meals (you do have to provide your own food, but give her a list for the butcher on Mondays to have all the meat delivered for the rest of the week) and all meals were excellent! My kids had a rental car breakdown while visiting Samara (close town, right on the beach). All they had was the email address of Jacqueline and emailed her telling her that they were stranded. Way above and beyond, Jacquieine called Ana and told her of the plight of our kids. Ana and her husband drove to Samara where they got the radiator repaired and allowed the kids to drive back to the Casa. This is one of most beautiful places we have visited in our 65 years! Definitely would recommend renting a 4 wheel drive vehicle.
