Our family vacation was wonderful. The accommodations are spetacular, and the staff was outstanding. This was our second time at this home and it gets better every time. It's one of the most beautiful places on earth.
We stayed here last July for 5 nights and loved it. This year we returned to CR for 17 days. First part of trip was in Dominical and then in Cabo Matapalo in the Osa. Both houses were great but there is something so so special about Villa Vista de Oro and it was the perfect way to end a phenominal trip. AC didn't hurt either!
THE VIEW!!! 180 degrees of ocean, sunsets, evening lighting storms, birds and flowers. Howler monkeys in the morning. I can never tire of the view.
THE FOOD!! Diego's food was delicious. Pancakes, freshly made sausages, toast, omlettes and fresh fruit for breakfast, lunches like ceviche or amazing nachos, and dinners and desserts that had us licking our plates (and raiding the kitchen later at night to eat some of that amazing coconut pie or icecream!) Pina coladas and milk shakes for the kids and mojitos and margaritas for adults. Lovely presentation too.
SERVICE!! After arriving from the Osa where everything is damp and stinky, laundry is done and folded and delivered to your room. House is kept impeccably clean. The new caretakers, Nestor and Carole, making sure we had everything we needed and then some, driving us to Pez Vela to go for a swim, keeping the wine and gin that we liked fully stocked, turning off lights when we went to bed and bringing the dogs for a visit and swim bc we missed our dog so.
THE ALL INCLUSIVE ASPECT-We stayed here for 4 days and never left except for a beach swim. We swam in amazing pool, played games, watched movies, napped in hammock. Everything is taken care of!
Beds are super comfy. Towels lush. Baths great. AC lovely. I love the open air aspect and THE VIEW!!!
And best of all, we got to meet Kelly, the owner, and Modesta, who was the interim caretaker last year. Cannot wait to return for a third time.
I had an event for a social group at Villa Vista de Oro. Previously speaking with the owner Kelly I was told that the view was to die for! But when we arrived at the Villa I literally almost died! She was so right the view is amazing, the sunset setting on a beautiful hill! We could not of ask for more!
Kelly and her staff were so accommodating. They truly went above and beyond everything that we need for the event!
Coming from a different country and not being able to see the location of your event can be scary but trust me! Kelly is very trustworthy and the house will be better than you ever imagined!
Our stay at Villa Vista de Oro was incredible. Our entire family of 11 spent the week of Christmas here and it was full of awesomeness. The villa is absolutely beautiful and meticulously maintained by an incredible staff. It has 180 degree views of the ocean complete with beautiful sunsets and great breezes. We had the pleasure of monkeys on a few mornings out the front door. The birds were all very entertaining as well.
Four of the bedrooms had splendid ocean views and the “bunk” room upstairs had great jungle views. Every bathroom was jaw dropping gorgeous.
I cannot rave enough about the staff and the all-inclusive aspect of this villa. Isabel was a savior with her fluent English. She arranged for smooth pickup and drop off of family coming in from the Ohio, Oregon and England! She arranged for all of our tours and shopping excursions with expert precision. Isabel was there every day to meal plan with us and answer any questions what so ever. What a beautiful person she is and a pleasure to talk to and visit with. And I can’t say enough about the all-inclusive way this villa is run. This method takes all of the hassle out of everything. There was always plenty of beer, wine, water, food, whatever we needed. Isabel even made a special “coffee run” to get us coffee to take home.
Chef Jose cooked us 3 wonderful, delicious meals everyday with fantastic desserts as well. He even accommodated one of our family members that had dietary restrictions. Jose Mario kept the pool spotless, our drink glasses full and even protected us from a possum in a tree that was driving the dogs crazy one night, haha. Costa Ricans celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve so we wanted to give them the night off. Chef Jose and the staff prepared our entire dinner ahead of time so all we had to do was just grill it up and serve it. Complete with a delicious, festive dessert of course. No aspect went unforgotten.
Isabel arranged for us to go fishing (caught a huge Mahi Mahi), paddle boarding, sail/snorkel cruising and shopping. She even accompanied us to the local rodeo that was in a nearby town. What a great experience that was! I shouldn’t forget about the local rescue Monkey Farm either. Very interesting and worth the visit.
Everything was perfect and you just can’t put a price on being able to spend quality family time together with no hassles. I would certainly recommend this wonderful villa to anyone.
We ( group of 8) arrived on Dec 12th with very high expectations, only to find ourselves speechless as everything we saw and experienced exceeded our expectations.
The view from the villa was breathtaking,the open living area awesome, spectacular pool and very comfortable bedrooms.
The service we received was wonderful and gracious. The entire staff ( Jose Luis the chef, Mario Jose the caretaker, Erica and Gerly housekeeping) under Isabel Zungia's supervision and guidance was top notch, always smiling and willing to attend to you anytime.
Would recommend Villa Vista De Oro to all our family and friends.
Ten months ago, I started talking to Liz after finding this home. She was always responsive. I wanted the perfect place to celebrate my 50th with my husband and two children, 10 and 12. I finally booked 5 nights and will say I had very high expectations for this house.
When we arrived at the villa, I was literally speechless. The 180 degree ocean views can not be captured in a photo. Nor can the openness of the living area, the attention to detail nor the spectacular pool. But we soon realized that there was even more to impress us. Brenda, the maid, took all of our dirty clothes from 3 days in the rainforest and washed them for us. Benedicto, the amazing chef, who cooks every meal with such pride and passion, had delicious nachos waiting for us.
When I would awake in the morning, I would don my Villa Vista de Oro robe and walk down the steps feeling like I was starring on lifestyles of the rich and famous. Benedicto would have freshly prepared juice for the children and great Costa Rican coffee for us. Then we would have a tray of fresh fruit and then a delicious cooked to order breakfast. My son ate pancakes and bacon every day and could not have been happier. All the meals were cooked with such passion. Benedicto taught my daughter how to make strawberry juice and gave my husband and me a lesson on ceviche preparation. On our day of departure, Benedicto sent us off with sandwiches for the kids and ceviche for us. All the folks at the airport were hoping the ceviche would not make it past security so they could eat it!
We did the adventure day at Hacienda Guachelpin, sailed and snorkeled on the Seabird, and had open air massages at the house. Lovely….
Benedicto became a friend to us and this made the trip even better than we could have expected. He realized that we missed our dog and brought the family dog, Muneco, to the house. He took us on a 3 1/2 hour golf cart ride which included a ride to the Pez Vela beach where we all (Muneco included!) swam in the clear water and then on a ride to see the spectacular views and villas of Ocotal. He watched a movie with us (we had on the Spanish subtitles) and we looked at the stars one crystal clear night. He helped me improve my Spanish and taught the kids basic words.
One our our tour guides brought a couple staying at the Four Seasons and they could not believe the house!
Although this was the rainy season, the weather was perfect. Thanks so much for exceeding all expectations!
