Guestbook comments from the manager

It took no time for my family to settle into this beautiful place. The views were spectacular, the birds were singing and the monkeys were howling. We immediately know we were going to experience an authentic Tican vacation. The house was well decorated and included a big leather sectional that my family could sink into at the end of our days. Every room had an amazing view! Beds were cozy, kitchen was well stocked and the outside decks were fantastic. We will defiantly return to this place!

Ocean view! Spectular Sunsets! Great Pool!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough. Every part of our 5 week stay was perfect.. Staff at Special Places very professional. They can take care of all needs and wants, just let them know. ( A special thank you to Phem. You took excellent care of us and met all our many questions with accurate assurances we needed to make this a special trip.) The condo is well kept, and the pictures on line of the condo were very accurate of the ammenities. This was our 1st time in Costa Rica and would love to return. We hosted our son-in-law and daughter and their 2 little boys. We had all we needed in house to meet all our needs. We were able to find what we needed at grocery stores in area. The Local farm market is a gem and fresh fish is available there too, and with the grill on the deck we ate very well..The pool was a very well used and enjoyed by our family. The hill climb a good work out! The area beaches are very nice and quite, we had time to visit all of them. A favorite was Conchal and Danta very close by and be sure and keep a close eye out for monkeys. We saw them finally at Playa Danta on 2 separate visits. The food in the area is also very good, and the people are wonderful. A rental car is a must, although some people rented golf carts to get around, and that worked for them. Gas carts worked best as battery carts can run out of power. The roads are good from airport to condo all paved, but many roads are dirt or gravel, off the main roads with potholes, but driveable. Be prepared for a dusty and sandy vehicle. We had a Nissan car and it got us around on all our adventures. We traveled to Monteverde Cloud forest by car. Beautiful! Take a guided tour to spot the animals. Plan an overnite trip as the road in is partially paved then gravel. Visit the artist of Guaitil and take the time to have them show off there skills of making Pottery in their open fire kilns. Take a trip to Lola's on Playa Avellanas for a real nice beach side stop off lunch as well as another Costa Rica Outstanding beach. In case you haven't figured it out we found

this is truly a piece of Paradise. The Bradleys from Michigan....

Very nice. Absolutely worth the money.

  • 5 of 5

One of the keys to a great villa rental is good beds! This condo had great beds for everyone; big rooms and plenty of space for two active kids and two adults. We needed a little help to get to Playa Penca but it is only a 5 minute walk (right out of the complex, down the dirt road, left at the "gate" in the fence). Whole place was very quiet; restaurants were super and the people very nice!

Hint on driving from Liberia: If you don't get a 4x4 make sure you take the longer, fully paved, route to the condo. Especially if it's been raining!

We truly enjoyed our time and the help of Special Places. Would use them again!

Villa is beautiful! Ocean view is breathtaking! Bedrooms are large and comfortable, plenty of towels available. Short walk from 2 best beaches of Costa Rica. The area is very safe, and property owners were very helpful. We got excellent customer service.

The Perfect Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time to Costa Rica and we had a trip of a lifetime! The villa was so nice, spacious and breathtaking views! Every morning we woke up to the sounds of howler monkeys and birds, made breakfast and enjoyed it out on the porch over looking the ocean. Nothing is more spectacular and peaceful!

The villa is so close to several amazing beaches- it was hard to choose which beach to go to for the day!! We met up with Walter Marchani to do a morning of SUP (stand up paddle boarding) and snorkeling. He brought the boards/paddles and the snorkels and showed us a great time!

The villa is also close to several great restaurants- The Beach House, Coco Loco and The Shack, to name a few. It was easy to get food from local food markets if you wanted to cook in. The kitchen is stocked with everything you can imagine + a grill.

Can't wait to go back!!!

An Slice of Coastal Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay at this wonderful spacious villa on the Gunacaste coast. It was very comfortable and secure. Waking up to the spectacular views and the sound of the local wildlife was simply paradise. Our three older teenagers loved having their own space and hanging out at the infinity pool. The location was ideal for exploring the many beaches along the coast with easy access to a variety of restaurants and local stores. This was our first time to Costa Rica and we loved it!
