PARADISE

5 of 5
Four of us recently spent a week at Villa Serena. ‘Villa Serena’ is beautiful and comfortable - both inside and outside. The gazebo, pool area and yard area were perfect places to relax, nap, read, visit, and listen to the sounds of the ocean waves. The Caretakers kept all areas of the property very clean, well maintained and secure. Marcia prepared a few meals for us and did a fantastic job. The Villa is located in a private and somewhat secluded area although it is within walking distance to town for the active individual. The booking process was handled very smoothly and the information given to us was informative and useful. Each day we would venture out for a couple of sightseeing trips but did not venture too far away as we hated to leave the luxury of our home away from home! The only ’con’ I can think of is that the week had to end.

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.

BREATHTAKING VIEW, PRIVATE POOL, HEAR THE WAVES.

5 of 5
This was our second stay at Villa Mitchell. The house is set up around the pool. You fall asleep to the sound of the surf and wake to the surf and the sound of birds and howler monkeys. It is a short distance down the hill to the middle of Playa Carrillo where you can walk the beach, paddle board, kayak, surf and snorkel. There are crocodiles in the streams at each end of the beach. At night, the stars are overwhelming and easy to gaze at from the pool deck. If you keep the hummingbird feeders filled, you will be rewarded with some amazing birds. The home is spacious with a living room that is comfortably cool and a master bedroom just off the pool deck. The house has been around awhile but is comfortable like an old pair of blue jeans. The owner provides cleaning service and that is a great feature as ants and other insects are a fact of life in Costa Rica. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stays here and look forward to a third time.
