The pictures do not do this property justice. Clean, relaxing, indulgent, and perfect! Martin is the perfect host and caretaker and the owners are responsive and helpful. We would definitely stay at Villas Escondrijo again!

Wonderful Setting, Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5
The home was spotless and truly furnished with all amenities, including a fully stocked kitchen. It was nice to even have coffee with sugar and sweeteners for our first morning! The pool was a welcome respite from the warm weather, the home is comfortable, the washer and dryer (with detergent!) was appreciated, and the quiet setting ideal. The home sits on a ridge overlooking the ocean and beautiful sunsets, and is a short drive to the beach at the bottom of the ridge. Not far away are more activities, including two national parks, natural beaches, zip-line opportunities, and don't miss the horseback ride to the local falls. The home was truly equipped for the comfort of its guests and nothing was overlooked!

As close to heaven as you can get

  • 5 of 5
What can I say about this wonderful place.From the time we got there to the time we left was absolutely fabulous...When we first got there and Martin directed us up the mountain I was a bit concerned but once we arrived the view and villas were absolutely beautiful....The accommodation were great and felt just like home, in fact I wish it were my home...Everything you needed was there and I have to commend whoever designed the house, fit right into the mountain and with beautiful wood finishings.Martin was great, always there right away when we needed him and very helpful with all our activities...We rented a 4 wheel drive which I would recommend to anyone who is stay there as it is quite a steep grade up...Listened to the monkeys all day and had the visits from the Toucans in the morning and the evening...Lots of insects which in turn gave us great entertainment and laughs outside on the deck and by the pool...Pool temperature was great as it was quite warm weather and the pool was very refreshing..Lots of cool looking frogs and geckos.All in all a perfect way to finish off out 2 week stay in first time visited Costa Rica...Made some great home cooked meals where we found everything we needed in the kitchen...Beds comfy and Kevin and I didn't even need the a/c just a nice breeze through the screen at night...Loved Dominical and ate several times at the Soda right down town best chicken vegatable soup ever...Would definitely come back maybe bring a few more people and book both places....Dean you have a great place and I hope to be back in the future...Pura Vida!!!!!

An Absolute Paradise

  • 4 of 5
Although a bit late, we wanted to submit our experience at Villas Escondrijo. We visited the Villas back at the end of March, beginning of April and we got to meet Dean, his wife and son. It was definitely a pleasure! They are very nice people. Staying at the Villas was a true adventure. The view is absolutely gorgeous and we really enjoyed the animals, flowers and nature that surround them. The Villas are very clean although you do need to watch out for tiny friends (ants) that will come visit when you leave any food out. Also, it was a bit difficult to sleep at night due to the toad orchestra that showed up almost every single night. Hainer, the gardener, was a very nice man that was willing to help and assist in anything and at all times. We do regret not having met Rosemary and not having her as our hostess We read in previous reviews that she was a very nice lady and a big help when it came to tour suggestions. Unfortunately, I think there was a lack of attention from our hostess and no suggestions or guidance was given. Being our first time in Costa Rica, it would have been nice to have received support in this aspect. Nevertheless, our experience at the Villas was pleasant! A couple of suggestions are: roundtrip transportation from the airport to the Villas (we got a bit lost in our way there), a restroom upstairs and a restroom outside by where the pool area is, some lighting thru the front yard by the pool and, last but not least, having the option for tourists to pay extra to have a person cooking for them. Overall, we would definitely recommend the Villas, especially if you are an adventure seeker. Thank you Dean and family for the opportunity to use your beautiful Villas.

Owner's Response: As a property owner, we are always happy to hear that people enjoyed thier stay at our Villas, and welcome comments about their adventure.
March, 2011 was our new manager's (Martin) first month, and being new, wasn't sure about that "fine line" between giving guests their privacy, and seeing to their needs. We have received great comments about him from recent guests!
Being a "rental home" we can not offer some of the services of a Hotel, such as airport pick up, or cooked meals, instead, we provide a true "Costa Rica" experiance that you will not get staying in a hotel.

Cheers,
Dean.

Costa Rica Paradise

  • 5 of 5
This was an amazing and beautiful way to introduce ourselves to Costa Rica. The Villas are incredibly beautiful, clean and well equipped. We found everything to be better than advertised, from the views, the wildlife, activities available, and amenities. Simply outstanding.

After an easy 3 hour drive from San Jose, we met Martin at the Roca Verde (excellent beach location & food) for the short but steep climb to the villas. He introduced us to the amenities and the general layout. Martin proved to be very helpful yet unobtrusive. His recommendations for local activities were excellent.

The villas themselves are immaculate, clean, and remarkably well stocked with basic provisions: coffee, barbecue, pool, laundry etc. There is a television, but I don't know if it works; too much other stuff to even care! The kitchen is small, well-equipped and very useful. Shop at the local mercadito for basics, travel 10 kilometers south for a larger and better stocked store with an actual meat counter.
Dominical is a funky and fun place to surf, drink, and hang. Try the seared tuna (tuesdays) at Tortilla Flats, very tasty if a bit more touristy than the local Sodas.

Highlights of our stay: the flora and fauna! (Don't forget to have binoculars!) Stunning views from every vantage of the house, frequent visits from Toucans, monkeys, iguanas, and amazing frogs serenading us to sleep every night. We spent time at Hacienda Baru for jungle walks, butterflies and orchids as well as an educational and fun afternoon on the zip-lines. The horseback trip to Nauyaca Falls was outstanding. Great food, and a gorgeous waterfall and swimming hole. Take Eric up on his offer to climb the falls and leap into the pool, you won't regret it.

Overall, this is one of the most fun and beautiful places we have ever visited. The Villas are outstanding! Beautiful and friendly folks wherever we went. Many many activities and lots of time spent just enjoying the house and pool.

Thanks Dean, Jay and Martin for a memorable stay. We can't wait to return. Glowing recommendations to everyone we can share with.

Villa Escondrijo ... a true paradise

  • 5 of 5
Help!!! I'm having a horrible time acclimating back to the Colorado winter!!!! It was such a beautiful and fun and wonderful Christmas week in Costa Rica!!!! What a great time we had. It was wonderful. The villas were beautiful and we had the BEST time ever!!! We couldn't have been more pleased with the Villas Escondrijo ... they were beautiful, and comfortable for our family's stay. I simply couldn't stop taking pictures of the gorgeous flowers and sunsets from the patio and decks. The pool was beautiful and a welcome oasis after a fun day of adventures. Rosemary was wonderful and very helpful as well. We would definitely recommend a stay at this oasis for anyone!

Awesome stay

  • 5 of 5
Dean, We would like to thank you for the most amazing stay at Villa Escondrijo! Your villas are beautifully decorated, the pool was such a treat, and we were in awe everyday of the wildlife that came to visit! We saw not only the howler monkeys, but a white faced monkey, a sloth, iguanas, toucans that fed daily, geckos, and quite a variety of frogs. It was every bit true to the description! We even had fun on the rope swing in the nearby waterfall. The boys surfed twice daily. We even experienced an outstanding zip line nearby. We hope to visit again very soon! Thank you for this amazing experience!
