FABULOUS VIEWS & PERFECT LOCATION!

5 of 5
I can't say enough positive things about Storm & Amy's villa. It is exactly as advertised, kitchen is well-stocked, including decent bath & beach towels (none of those tiny, scratchy white ones here!). The views are amazing, I could have sat out on the deck all day but there were too many fun things to do in the area. We saw toucans, monkeys, lizards and tons of other birds right from the deck. We also hiked farther up the road into the rainforest early in the morning and saw lots of poison dart frogs. Having a private pool was fantastic - our kids could swim as much as they liked while we were making meals or whatever, instead of a community pool where we'd have to chaperone them. Amy & Storm left us with several suggestions on beaches / restaurants, as well as recommendations for activities. Highly recommend Sunset Surf for surf lessons & the Nauyaca Falls horseback trip. I would stick with the beaches they recommend, they were all great. One day we went to the Marino Ballena National Park beach (which was not on their list). Although the beach was visually awesome, the vibe there was a little unpleasant - police patrolling the beach and some locals eyeing our stuff a little too closely. There are too many other nice beaches that are free with a more relaxed vibe. Playa Ventanas was awesome, be prepared to pay a German guy who lives there about $5 to park, but it's worth it. The villa has 3 AC units, one in each bedroom and one on the main level, so we found that we only needed to run the bedroom ACs at night, the rest of the time, we could just open the doors & windows. The location is fantastic, walking distance to Dominicalito beach and a waterfall with a swimming hole, and just a short drive to other beaches & restaurants. We ate at several of the restaurants Amy & Storm recommended, including their own Jolly Roger (great, friendly staff & awesome views!), Tortilla Flats, PorQueNo, La Parcela and Sabor Espanol to name a few. It is the tropics and sometimes things don't work as consistently as in the US (water, power, WIFI, etc), but the few minor occurrences didn't impact our trip. I've lived and worked in a lot of tourist destinations and I can honestly say the local population in this part of CR is friendlier and more laid back than anywhere else I've traveled. They truly are living the Pura Vida!

LOVE IT.

5 of 5
This was our first time in Costa Rica and I absolutely loved it. We had a group of 6 adults for a birthday vacation. The house is beautiful, spacious and very close to Quepos. The pool was a great way to cool off after our daily adventures. We saw monkeys, sloths, toucans and a Mot Mot at the house. The house very clean and we had a friendly cleaning staff daily. Dorit was awesome. She arranged for a sailing trip, canopy tour and White water rafting on the Rio Savegre. I would recommend all of the tours. They’re fun and very professional. Everyone in our group felt very safe on the tours, even when they were doing things out of their comfort zone. We visited many restaurants but Ronnie’s place was our personal favorite. We went there two times in one week. The seafood is amazing and so is the sangria. I am going to recommend the Villa Mot Mot to my friends and family. I would only suggest staying longer than one week, because we didn’t want to leave. I hope to see you soon Costa Rica. Pure Vida.

PARADISE FOUND IN COSTA RICA

5 of 5
The Villa was everything that was promised and more. Overall, our stay was amazing and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this property. We are 47 and 50 and have done a decent amount of travelling and this was the best vacation of our lives. The property is exactly as pictured and the views of the Pacific Ocean and the sunsets every evening are beyond spectacular. The Infinty pool is what sets this property apart from the others. You have complete privacy and we spent 2-3 hours a day at or in the pool. We had coffee outside every morning on the covered veranda and enjoyed the view and wildlife, including birds, butterflies and a friendly monkey who visited a nearby tree. It is so nice outside that we even chose to stay home and enjoyed dinners we prepared 4 of the 8 evenings we were there. The kitchen is fully appointed and being health conscious types we went to the local farmers markets to get FRESH fruit, vegetables and seafood when we cooked. The bed is absolutely amazing. I have some back issues and was concerned but I slept like a baby the entire stay. The beaches nearby in Manuel Antonio are as good as advertised too. Soft sand, great surf for swimming and all kinds of water activities available for a fee (para-sailing, sea kayaking, surfing, etc.). There is even a beach you can drive onto and park which is more private. Brenda and I enjoyed a day hiking and enjoying Manuel Antonio National Park on our own and saw 15-20 monkeys in their natural habitat, sloths, numerous birds, raccoons, etc., etc. We want to thank Hazel (the Villa's concierge) for recommending some other great activities. We went zip lining at Mid World and did both the normal lines and Superman (worth the extra $40). On another day we went waterfall rappelling with Xtreme Tours. The waterfalls and pools to swim in were great and the drive up into the mountains and scenery at the park where you rappel is beautiful. Both were thrills that we will cherish for a lifetime. Both staff allow you to do whatever you want based upon your ability. I've gone many other places and it’s not even enjoyable because of all the ridiculous rules. Both of these are a must for any adrenaline junkies or couples looking for some fun. Finally, if you rent a car get a 4WD. It helps with driving up the steep driveway to the Villa and allows you to go explore. We drove down the coast to the smaller and more humble towns of Dominical and Uvita and had a great day. Restaurants were fantastic. Can't wait to go back. Thanks!!!
