Paradise!!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Casa Verde. My husband and I stayed her for a week for our honeymoon. Casa Verde is paradise! It is so peaceful and private- we loved drinking our coffee in the morning on the deck listening to the birds. It was close to beaches and the little town areas, but set up high enough to give wonderful views and privacy. Plus, the house itself is stunning. I didn't think having a pool would be a big deal- but it made all the difference! We would spend our mornings on the beach and then our afternoons relaxing at Casa Verde- either sipping drinks in the pool or snoozing in the hammocks. Another bonus is the wonderful property manager- she is so friendly and responsive to any and all questions! We plan on coming back to Casa Verde, no question! Best Vacation EVER.

Amazing!!!

Casa Verde was incredible! Watching the sunset from the pool with a cocktail in hand is a must. The experience and accommodations are first rate. From the moment i sent my initial inquiry - which was answered in less than an hour by the owner, to the gracious property manager and grounds keepers, the property and exclusivity is unmatched. Great fruit trees on property and banana leaves to steam fresh caught fish in. The monkeys, parrots and iguanas serenade every morning through open doors and windows. Being high above the dust and activity of Mal Pais is awesome. Lots to see and do nearby, but a 4x4 vehicle you will not be able to do without. Roads are rough (loved every second of it).

Casa Verde is well maintained and has a washer/dryer. We used it daily! It gets pretty dirty down in Mal Pais and it was nice to have the option of doing your own laundry.

We cooked dinner most nights and traveled with our own spices. The kitchen is well appointed but like most vacation rental homes, you will need to bring your own condiments, spices, sugar/flour etc. or purchase at the store. Tons of markets from which to choose - we favored the Super Ronny #2 in Santa Teresa. It wasn't the closest, but had the best selection of meats and produce.

Lots of great restaurants about 15 minutes from the house in Mal Pais. We liked the "Sodas" that catered to the locals and were much less expensive than the other restaurants. Sodas are the Costa Rican equivalent to a taco shack- really great food, cheap prices. We had casado everyday for lunch at many different places in Santa Teresa, Mal Pais, Manzanillo and Montezuma.

We surfed for a week in Playa Hermosa (Santa Teresa). This spot is great for beginners as it has a nice long sand bar and pretty good waves for more experienced regardless of tide. Rented boards from Nalu - as recommended by the property manager. She was right on! Nalu was great, offered nice boards at a good price.

Would stay at this property again - all around amazing experience!
