Loved Gorda Vista

  • 5 of 5
Gorda Vista looked just like the pictures on the website, but of course more beautiful in person. We absolutely loved the place; it was perfect! The house was more than spacious enough for the two of us on our honeymoon. There was plenty of room to cook on site with the large indoor kitchen and a grill area outside. The house also has many different spaces available for relaxing. The house and pool were freshly cleaned. Neil was so welcoming, allowing us to follow him in car to the house and giving us a tour of the place upon arrival. He also offered great suggestions of things to do while in Costa Rica and places to eat in the area. We had great communication with Neil while planning our trip, which was very helpful and he was always available once we were at Gorda Vista, as well. We felt very safe at the home, being in a gated area, given the keys and provided with cell phones. We have stayed at resorts before, but after this stay at a rental home we will be choosing rental homes more often in the future. We truly enjoyed our stay at Gorda Vista and can’t wait to get back to Costa Rica. Thank you Neil for everything!

The place is AWESOME!!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just stayed 5 nights here for our honeymoon. I've stayed in amazing hotels and properties all over the world and this may have topped them all. The kitchen, furniture, bathrooms, pool, washer/dryer, landscaping are all top notch and very well maintained.

The views of the ocean from the patio, pool and living room are stunning. We really didn't want to leave any of the nights. The sounds of the jungle are very soothing and with all the lights out at night the stars pop out of the sky. The TV has 300 movies on a hard drive to watch, which was nice for lazy afternoons. Good quality iPOD dock as well, was great to have loud music - with no neighbors anywhere around it was fun to be loud.

The place is really secluded, you can't see any other properties. The dirt road to the property is easy (probably don't need 4x4 but better safe than sorry). It's only 5 minutes to get down to the main paved road. From there - you are right at Dominicalito Beach and it's only another 5 minutes to Dominical Beach. Plenty of cool restaurants and places to get groceries nearby. Day trip to Manuel Antonio, hike to an AMAZING waterfall, surf everyday - then back to the palace everything.

Neil is a class act, and a really cool guy. I love to meet people that take great pride in what they do. He told us everything we needed to know - including a great recommendation on where to buy fresh fish to cook (yum) and where to go to eat if we didn't want to cook. Directions were spot on and very easy to follow.

I'll return to Dominical and will rent this place from Neil again. Would recommend it to anyone.
