Guestbook comments from the owner
My husband and I stayed at Villa Cielo Mar with my parents from March 18-23, 2013. We were looking for a balance between our typical indie, budget, adventure travel (which is our normal style) and something with a touch of class and luxury because we were celebrating my parents’ retirement. Villa Cielo Mar was perfect. It was a bit off the beaten path, which is perfect for us, and Carol’s attention to detail in the directions made the navigation easy!
We arrived a bit earlier than planned but even so Scott and Carol eagerly greeted us…it was so warm (having just traveled from Monteverde). They showed us the ins and outs of the villa, the really thorough reference documents that included anything you’d need to know during your visit, provided us with their email/phone numbers in the event their thoughtful planning didn’t already cover everything.
The condo was one of three-3 story condos rising above the beautiful Playa Penca. Set in the middle of the condos, the first story included a basic and clean bedroom, bathroom, laundry room, and a convertible bedroom that overlooked an outdoor kitchen and the pool.
The second floor served as the primary living area. A beautiful gourmet kitchen was stocked with all of the essentials that we needed for our eat-in meals. There was also a great dining and entertaining space. The highlight of the second floor was the second floor balcony, which provided a view beyond our expectations.
The third floor was our master suite. The bed seemed like a California King and had the most amazing balcony overlooking the Playa Penca. There was a beautiful Jacuzzi ensuite with a tiled shower and amazing Mexican tiled sinks. Our one complaint was that the second floor bathroom had poor water pressure (the first floor bathroom had awesome pressure) but not having a “suicide shower”, which is a rarity in Costa Rica, made up for the third floor water pressure.
Beyond the great physical space, the service was awesome. If we had any worries, we just called or emailed Scott or Carol. Carol even made arrangements for us to have a local fishmonger stop by the villa and offer us options from his daily catch including some of the largest most delicious shrimp we’ve ever had. Finally, using Homeaway’s deposit and payment service was awesome! All I had to do was fill in a check like form with my bank’s information for the full deposit and rental amount. I am always anxious doing this, and in truth almost opted for another option because of the pay
