PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this Villa in Feb 2009. We are a family with 3 young children and we traveled to Costa Rica with another family with 2 children. Villa Encantadora is stunning and well appointed; it accomodated our two families perfectly because there were 2 bedrooms in one part of the house and a 2 bedrooms + TV room in another part of the house.

The property description was accurate and was more elegant in real life than I anticipated from the pictures. It was definitely clean and well taken care of. Both the owner and concierge provided great customer service before the vacation as we were planning our trip and during it. The pool was perfect... beautiful (especially at sunset) and the depth & temperature with a wide expanse of steps going into the water was easy for us and our kids.

The property is located in the back (top of the hill) of a gated community so we felt very safe the whole time we were there. Our favorite excursion was to hire someone to take us by boat to a private (no road access) beach and our favorite restaurant was Ginger's.

I have already recommended this property to friends and I would stay there again in a heartbeat. We can't wait to vacation in Costa Rica again!

DREAM VACATION

  • 5 of 5
.My husband and I, along with 4 close friends, just returned from our trip to Costa Rica. I only wish we could have stayed another week. The Villa is absolutely beautiful. It sits high on a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We sat on the veranda and watched the birds and butterflies and listened to the ocean waves in the distance. At night we were mesmerized by the most gorgeous sunsets that you can imagine.
The home had everything we needed and more. We packed some frozen meat in our suitcase and since Houston is only a 3 hour flight it was still frozen on arrival. We cooked almost every evening meal on the outdoor gas grill that has a full kitchen. I did learn the day before departing that you can buy fresh fish and shrimp on the beach. Next time we will take advantage. Most restaurants on the beaches have delicious, fresh seafood.
The maid, Yevette, was wonderful and cleaned and did laundry, including our clothes, upon request. I really appreciated the concierge, Tim, giving us our privacy but always available when we needed something.
I would, definitely recommend using Mountain Outdoor Adventures for private tours. Rafael and Julio took us on several private tours. They were extremely knowledgeable and lots of fun. They felt like a part of the group rather than our guides. We took a boat ride from the beach with Captain Al. He took us to a white, sandy beach where we collected shell and snorkeled. He was a real character.
The people of Costa Rica are so warm and friendly. I never felt unsafe.
By the way, my husband is very hard to please and he loved everything about the Villa Encantadora. When we return to Costa Rica it will be our home away from home.
PURA VIDA!

PLAYA HERMOSA PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Villa Encantadora with 9 people. including family and friends. This is the second time we've stayed at this home, the first being in 2007. As before, Beachfront Properties took great care of us. Gus is a very conscientious, dependable concierge and Elsy took great care of things around the house. We had been to the house before so we called Gus from the car rental office and he met us at the house with the keys. He had even brought cold beer to greet us with. The house is beautiful and well-furnished and maintained. Our favorite activity was lounging around the beautiful infinity pool. We also enjoyed the beach at Playa Hermosa, surfing in Tamarindo and the Congo Trail canopy tour. We knew of many restaurants from our previous trip so we made sure to visit our favorites, Ginger and La Finisterra. We also ate at Villa del Sueno, Hotel Velero, Papagayo Seafood (in Playa del Cocos) and Aqua Sport. However, the best meal we ate was the lunch that Elsy prepared for us. We also ate homemade guacamole and margaritas every evening as we watched the sunset. This house is perfect great for large groups and all ages. We had ages ranging from 18 months to 53 years and everyone had plenty to do. I highly recommend, Playa Hermosa, Beachfront Properties and Villa Encantadora.

FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful stay at Villa Encantadora. After a busy week in La Fortuna and Monteverde, VE provided a relaxing end to our Costa Rican adventure.

The views, infinity pool, and outdoor spaces were spectacular. Slide open all of the glass doors which line the back of the house, plug in your iPod, grab a cool drink, and hang out in the pool. It was so beautiful at VE, it was hard to leave to go to the beach. Our favorite time was late afternoon/early evening enjoying the sunsets.

We had three excellent meals out (Ginger, Cafe de Playa, and at Villa del Sueno) but we also enjoyed a couple of great dinners at home after stocking up at the very nice AutoMercado in Playa del Coco.

The beautiful home was very nicely furnished and comfortably spacious for our family of five.

Villa Encantadora exceeded our expectations and will happily recommend it to friends.

ENCHANTED

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I traveled to Playa Hermosa after a week of hiking through the Costa Rican rain forests. Villa Encantadora was our last stop and far exceeded our expectations. The view of the Pacific Ocean, which can be seen from most rooms, was spectacular. Each evening, we enjoyed drinks on the porch or swam in the Infiniti pool while the sun set. This became a tradition. Inside, there is a large, modern kitchen with comfortable seating for meals. The entire house is spotless, and handsomely equipped, giving guests the feeling of being pampered. We slept well and most bedrooms enjoy the privacy of their own bathrooms. The evidence of nature abounds from the sounds and sightings of howler monkeys to exotic birds attracted by the plantings near the house.

The house is located in a gated community. The beach is within walking distance. Nearby towns are easily accessible by car and offer a wide selection of reasonably priced restaurants with a variety of ethnic cuisines. Our day trips included an unforgettable boat trip to the nearby islands (visible from the house) allowing exploration of caves on shore and underwater reefs rich with exotic fish, sea urchins, and living shells. In general, the weather was good for the end of summer/early fall, though we did experience the zip lines in the rain (one day)! By the time we had reached the house, our clothes had dried. Our week was much too short and would strongly recommend a two week stay. It’s a great house for family get-togethers, multiple couples, or girlfriend getaways. The house is large enough for privacy yet has many cozy areas for smaller gatherings. Villa Encantadora is on our list for a return vacation – as soon as we can getaway! Pura Vida!

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL INTERLUDE!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were privileged to stay in this great villa with its extraordinary views and assorted amenities. I'm not given to waxing eloquent about most things, but must admit everything about Villa Encantadora was the best -- the furnishings, the attention to detail -- everything was provided to making our stay luxurious and comfortable. We were able to enjoy restaurants, bars, sports, beaches, or to be as private as we wanted to be, which was mainly our reason for this getaway.

Would we come here again? You bet!
