This Villa exceeded all my expectations. The photos really don't do it justice. The location was private so our kids could play without fear of disturbing other guests, yet it was still close to everything we wanted to do. We took several of Karen's recommendations on places to eat and were not disappointed. Everyone in the area was friendly and helpful. Our favorite beach was Ventanas, but also loved the little surfing beach Dominical, where we found incredible breakfast and lunch. The drive to Manuel Antonio was easy and only took an hour. Overall an AMAZING trip. We are returning in several months and if Karen's place is available, we will definitely stay here again.
