PERFECT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I visited CR in Jan '09. It was a perfect trip, teary-eyed on our return ride back to the airport. Of the MANY highlights of the vacation, HABITAT MAGICO, no doubt, was chief among them. Can't express how relieved we were to walk into the house for the first time after a LONG day of travel and see how luxurious and clean it was. Can't express, either, how nice it was to return there after daily adventures to an immaculate bathroom, jacuzzi, living room, roof deck w/ sunsets, and finally, a comfortable bed. This will read like it was written by the owner... trust it's just written by a guy who wishes he was still on vacation... Neighborhood was quiet (very important). Safe. Views were unbeatable. The owner was more than accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. So much so, to write this review is a moral obligation to her. The property manager, Gina, also was an over-the-top pleasure to deal with. If you stay at the house BOOK YOUR CAR RENTAL THROUGH HER and not at one of the overpriced agencies!!! All in all, if I return to Costa Rica and stay in Guanacoste, I wouldn't remotely dream of staying anywhere else but Magico. The way that people take pictures of their rental properties with such creative photographic manipulation, you drive around Costa Rica and say to yourself, "We could have been staying at that dingy shack for all we knew." NOT the case here. I have better pictures of the property, in fact, than you see on this site - and will probably forward them to the owner. It's hard to write so complimentary about it and feel like you're being honest, but it really is true. Renting a house on vacation could be a nightmare. This was the exact opposite.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed the destination and the house as much as I do!! With the extensive renovation last year, my goal was to achieve an upscale & classy look, yet feel like - first and foremost - a "home away from home". After a day of exploring or a hot day at the beach, a dip in the jacuzzi may be just what the doctor ordered.... Considering both of you are such world travellers, I am truly humbled by your words.

PRIVATE AND QUIET

  • 5 of 5
Leila
Your home was very private and quiet. Perfect for what we needed. Rest and alone time! The deck for morning coffee and the fantastic busy parrots every morning were a great welcome and then sunset at night on the deck. The privacy is what we loved most. The mini cooling pool was perfect for a skinny dip and cocktail.
We tried to stay away from touristy attractions and loved snorkeling in Ocotal. the beach at Playa Grande, very secluded. A great local favorite was an authentic Italian restaurant, La Caveja. We adore the people of Costa Rica.
It's back to noisy leaf blowers, traffic and frantic schedules here.
Missing Costa Rica already.

YOU WILL LOVE THIS PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
Habitat Magico was the perfect spot for us to call "home". My girlfriends and I stayed here for one week In February, and it was so nice. I sent a email to the owner Leila, and the rest was easy! Super Easy. This was our first time renting a home and the whole process was great. Leila stays in contact with you until you depart and then her house manager takes care of you when you arrive. The house has a great layout. It was very spacious ( 4 People) and it feels great to arrive "home" after a long day of sight seeing. The views are fantastic off the balcony while you are having your morning coffee, and the hot tub is perfect for when you are having your mid afternoon cocktails. The location is great, as you can walk into town and buy groceries or have a lovely dinner on the beach. We rented a car and travelled as well. We would recommend a car that sits high off the ground, the driveway is steep, but we managed.Of course we cheered when we got to the top ( you just have to drive fast ) The house even has coolers and bbq supplies. Everything has been thought of and great care has been given to the comfort of guests. Thank you Leila. My girlfriends and I would highly recommend this wonderful house to call "home" for your vacation. We would recommend the restaurant Gingers in the near by town, and the local salsa bar just outside of town. We loved the Tamarindo beach, very beautiful, and had some great meals in the restaurants along the water. The cab drivers are friendly and very reasonable. This was a great experience for us and we can't wait to go back to Costa Rica...Pura Vida! Thank you Leila, Sincerely Jenn,Michele, Aimee and Jennifer

PERFECT HONEYMOON GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I went here on our honeymoon and couldn't have been more satisfied! The house is the mountainside of Playa del Coco giving you a perfect view of the ocean. The grounds are very well maintained and the jungle Jacuzzi provided a great place for my husband and I to cool off after our excursions. The location of the house was great. It 's near many of the tours offered, beaches, grocery stores and the city which is more build up. My husband and I enjoyed to convenience of having access to anything we needed but also not being in Liberia where is was a little hectic. Our neighbors were great and everyone was very pleasant and offered us help if we needed assistance finding our destination. My one recommendation would be be to rent a SUV or truck. Many of the roads are not paved which can make rides a bit bumpy. We did ok in our compact rental car but I think a different vehicle would have been better suited for the trip. My husband and I had a phenomenal time and will definitely rent from Leila again when we return.

JOIN THE LIFESTYLES OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS!

Our experience in enjoying Habitat Magico far exceeded our greatest expectations!

The owners are delightful, communicating often to help us get rental car, entertainment, etc. details arranged. Trust them. Their service before, during and after our stay was stellar. We feel like we have new friends.

But...exceeding even that pleasure was Habitat Magico itself! This exquisite villa is among a small cluster of very private, upscale villas, perched high on a hillside above the forest canopy of the nearby village. The villa offers so many phenomenal vistas of the countryside and the distant Pacific islands (via sparkling windows and outside lounging areas) that we hardly had time to enjoy them all in our short week. Its interior design and furnishings were unique, elegant and luxurious. The tiled bathrooms are gorgeous. The air conditioning was delightful, the ambiance perfect.

We had planned day trips, but the luxury of strolling onto the upper deck area to lounge with morning beverages, while watching the multiple variety of birds landing in the nearby treetops and seeing the boats moving in the distant harbor, acted as a magnet to make us linger. A short trip to the village beach for an hour walk and a dip in the Pacific became our second step. The perfect weather in Playas del Coco made that a daily occurrence. (Are you beginning to see how the magic of Magico lulled us into enjoying paradise?)

After returning to the villa each morning, there was a shower and a dip into the very private jungle jacuzzi adjacent to the outside dining area before time for a book and a nap. The afternoon was still free for trips to neighboring villages and beaches, returning in time for the many fun happy hour opportunities in our village. Dinner was sometimes out (trendy upscale to comfortable friendly pizza), but more often it was fun to barbecue at our "home," enjoying wine in the candlelight of our outdoor dining room, admiring the beautiful villa architecture and its tiled patios, often finishing with a candlelit dip in the jacuzzi with its romantic watery light. There was also a great supply of books, games and travel information and a lovely flat-screen TV.

When friends joined us for cocktails in the vista-filled living room and a steak dinner by the jacuzzi, they didn't want to leave. Neither did we. We have already booked for a month in 2014!

P.S. Get a car with new tires/4WD for the driveway adventure! It gets easier after the 1st time.

ENJOYABLE STAY AT THE HABITAT MAGICO

  • 4 of 5
My husband, and another couple arrive at the Habitat Magico after a not so good flight to Costa Rica. We were so happy to have finally arrived in Costa Rica and even happier when we walked into the Habitat Magico. The house was so clean, well decorated and comfortable. We felt right at home. Waking up in the morning and sitting outside on the deck listening to all the birds chirping made my day. I loved it! It was so peaceful and relaxing. The location of the villa was wonderful. We were not far from shopping center, grocery stores, beaches and restaurants. I also want to thank Leila, the owner, and Nuria, the caretaker, for going out of their way to help us with any questions we had in regards to Costa Rica. I would recommend Leila's home to anyone visiting Costa Rica. Once again, Leila, thank you for sharing your home with us.
