Dr. Igor Svoboda - retired Veterinarian and Tom Graydon - retired Criminologist & Realtor - have one thing in common: An intense LOVE of nature and all of God's creatures - especially things tropical!

We have always been surrounded by pets and plants, mountains and water, so it was only natural for us to gravitate to this beautiful little corner of Paradise...

Tom Graydon purchased this villa in 1989

After travelling extensively through many countries of the world, we came to Costa Rica for the first time 30 years ago and instantly fell in love with the nature, people, flora and fauna of this gentle country. 20 years ago (1989) we purchased a very large natural preserve nestleld above the Pacific ocean in a very sleepy, quiet community of Flamingo Beach in the Pacific North-Western province of Guanacaste. We never looked back - never regretted this decision. In fact, we started by building our first house. Then a guest house, followed by a pool. Before we knew it, we had designed and built a unique complex of beautiful Villas with 2 large pools - all built with the highest regard for their tropical surroundings and natureal setting. From every window or terace, one can appreciate the magic of Nature. It has been very rewarding personally for us to create this unique little corner of Paradise!

Quiet,charming accomodation in Costa Rica

We very much enjoyed our month long stay in January 2014 at Villas Casa Loma. We arrived late evening after a long delayed flight and found Tom and Igor waiting for us in the beautiful garden by the pool. They proved to be welcoming and helpful hosts. Our accommodation was clean and comfortable.
There were a number of other retired guests who have been coming there for several years. They obviously enjoyed the friendships they had formed and the quiet relaxation that Tom and Igor encourage.
The villas are very well situated, especially if you have a car. After the first week we were well rested and ready to enjoy the beautiful beaches, restaurants, and excursions to nearby towns and other attractions. We took a river boat cruise to see more of the exotic flora and fauna, a sunset catamaran cruise and a memorable weekend side trip to the Arenal volcano area where we zip lined in the rain forest and enjoyed the hot springs at Tabacon.

Thank you Tom and Igor for your hospitality!

Villas Casa Loma is indeed a beautiful property in a great location, close to many good restaurants, activities and grocery stores by car. The pools are sparkling clean and the manicured gardens are well looked after as are the Villas inside and out. Casa Loma offers spacious accomadations for independent laid back travellers that like all the comforts of home+ Thanks Igor and Tom for sharing your piece of paradise. We hope to be back and would have no hesitation of recommending the Villas to family and friends.

A fantastic place!!!

The best recommendation for a place we believe is to return! This spring was our second visit in mid-March and while very hot it did not matter. We come to completely relax, swim, read, wander the great country side, take in some of the wonderful natural sites, eg a trip down the Tempisque River, visit the cloud forest and the Aranal area. Tim and Igor manage Casa Loma beautifully, the grounds are beautifully maintained as well as beautiful to view, the swimming pool is perfect, large enough to be able to get a good lap in and never crowded when we were there. We had an efficiency apartment so we could get meals to ourselves if we decided to do so, although there are plenty of eating places within a quick drive. I would return without hesitation.

Fantastic Trip

My Mom, Sister and I were beyond fortunate to stay at Tom and Igor's remarkable property and our trip could not have been more perfect. Villas Casa Loma was hands down one of the best places we have stayed and believe me I have rented many properties thru VRBO and I do not hand out 5 star reviews lightly. From the moment we set foot on the grounds we knew we had found our home away from home. This was before we even entered our private villa. The villa itself was beautiful and comfortable and the views were spectacular from every door and every window. Views of the lush landscapes of the grounds, to the jungle behind and below the villa, and the ocean, marina and bay to the west. We lived on our villa's remarkable covered terrace! I have never seen more diverse flora and fauna anywhere than on their property. Lovely pathways link all the villas and pools together, yet they are all well placed to give each villa nice privacy and views. The most memorable gifts this property offered had to have been the sounds of the jungle each morning and evening. The birds, howler monkeys and tree frogs make the greatest music! Stunning to see and even more amazing to hear. The location was exceptional, just far enough away from the main part of town but not so far that you could not get anywhere you needed to go in a matter of minutes. We rented a car which made life so easy during our stay as well as enjoyed some greats tours with EcoTrans. Tom was an absolute pleasure to work with before and during our stay and hands down one of the nicest people we have ever met. You can tell he and Igor have put their heart and souls into their property and it shows everywhere. His entire staff were wonderful especially Willy who always greeted us each day with a big smile and kept the pools sparkling. We miss our little feline friend Cali. August is an incredible time to visit Costa Rica, the afternoon storms were breathtaking. Some of the most amazing thunder and lightening shows we have ever witnessed. Wow, did they generate some stunning sunsets! This was an incredible adventure and a place we will never forget. We cannot thank you enough for such a magical stay.

Owner's Response: PURA VIDA ! Thanks, Dawn, for your very kind words about our little corner of Paradise. It is always a pleasure to have interesting and interested guests here - and you all were certainly no exception ! Things have changed a little bit here since August... The gravel road (complete with potholes !) has been paved at last, making it a real pleasure to drive to neighbouring settlements and beaches such as Potrero and Las Catalinas... Being a bit away from the more built-up areas still offers great rewards (peace and quiet) with the convenience of easy access to the wonderful beaches of the area... There is so much to see and do here! The old settlement of Nicoya, with examples of early Spanish Colonial architecture, for example, is within an easy drive or our compound. The market town of Santa Cruz is even closer...A unique coffee growing area can be found just south of Nicoya, along with some of the best natural tropical honey to be found anywhere... Just a couple of the many fascinating things to do and see in the area... EcoTrans is still our favorite choice for planning spectacular tours and we are really happy to have them located so close to us in Flamingo Beach... As you have discovered, our property is designed to make the most of the views while catching the gentle breezes and allowing excellent privacy and security. Nature is always only a glance away ! At the moment birds are busily nesting in the palms around the upper swimming pool and our resident parrot is singing and talking - and even laughing - to the amusement of our guests here... We hope that you will be able to come back again and enjoy more of the sights, sounds and natural beauty we have to offer ! Just think " COSTA RICA: NO ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS ! " ... Willy, Seylin and Edith join in sending you warmest best wishes for a very HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014. We look forward to seeing you again soon here in our little corner of Paradise ! PURA VIDA ! Tom and Igor

It is with great pleasure that we write this review. We are a family of 5 and stayed at this beautiful place during our first ever trip to Costa Rica. This place is the Garden of Eden! The villas are clean and spacious with stunning views of the Ocean and mountains. The location is a perfect place to base your Costa Rica holiday. On the property are two beautiful pools which are a great way to end an active day exploring the stunning countryside. The hosts Igor and Tom are delightful gentlemen who were extremely helpful from the time we made the reservations right to check out. Getting to know them was a highlight of the trip. There is so much of Costa Rica we still need to explore so we look forward to our next visit! We give Villas Casa Loma our highest recommendation. This place is truly paradise!

Owner's Response: It was a great pleasure to have you all staying with us here in our little corner of Paradise ! We thoroughly enjoyed you all and the fact that you were able to squeeze so much enjoyment from your visit, too. As you were able to see, the beaches here all have their own special "character", which makes it a really exciting experience to visit and compare them. So glad, too, that you were able to experience some of the excellent local restaurants - as well as to sample a variety of unique and special tours available here. (Next time we hope that you will also see some crocodiles, along witht he other wildlife that you witnessed.) We most certainly look forward to seeing you all again one day soon ... and don't forget to bring your senses of adventure and humour with you once more ! As you have discovered, it really pays off ! Pura Vida ! Tom and Igor
