Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the most amazing vacation at your home. It's absolutely gorgeous and well maintained. And of course, Anna and Freddie were fabulous. We saw whales and a whole family of howler monkeys while relaxing at the pool one day. It truly was a vacation we'll never forget.

Many thanks,best.

What a great spot!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to this house after a huge two days of travel. We entered the house to a breathtaking view of the ocean. House was immaculate and spacious. Two bedrooms facing the ocean were also spacious attached rooms (by bathroom) had two good sized beds and lots of room for suitcases etc. As planned ahead of arrival we then had a gourmet meal planned by Anna. Anna is attentive and takes direction well. All the meals were outstanding and she was conscious of likes and dislikes.

Nearby is a fabulous beach at Puerto Carrillo where we walked every morning and then came back to a great breakfast prepared by Anna. We spent our middays touring around to other beaches and towns and generally arrived back in time for cocktails.

Each days beds were made and laundry done (perfectly I might add) if necessary when we arrived home with a snack that was out of this world.

It is a relaxing truly enjoyable place to stay. Weather over the top beautiful.

We loved Casa de la Loma!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful casa, spectacular views, and beautiful and friendly locale! Anna and Freddie made us feel very welcome and assisted us with all of our activities. Anna's cooking is out of this world! The home is very clean and comfortable. We highly recommend this home away from home - just the right mix of relaxing and fun-filled activities. Pura Vida!

A beautiful home with spectacular views and an amazing infinity pool.

  • 5 of 5

This home is truly one of a kind. Apart from the spectacular views it has a beautiful garden, a great pool and comfortable furniture including beds.

The food Ana cooked for us were first class. Varied and very tasty. The filet mignon, snapper , salsa and ceviche were particularly appreciated by all of us

Thank you Ana and Freddie for a great week.

Agneta and friends.

Peace and tranquility!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at the Casa with 3 couples in February. Loved the privacy afforded renting a private villa. No rushing to the pool in the early morning to secure chairs for the day!! Breathtaking views, phenomenal sunsets and fantastic meals courtesy of Ana.

We went to Carrillo Beach twice (only 10 minute drive from Casa) to enjoy sand and surf - recommend taking water shoes as sand extremely hot. Village of Samara quaint with some lovely beach front restaurants and bars.

The Casa itself is well appointed however with two couples sharing a bathroom it would be useful to have mirrors in each bedroom so as to not tie up bathrooms for any length of time. Nice selection of books and games for the convenience of the guests.

The location, while a good drive from the airport, offers the beauty of the flora and the wildlife that Costa Rica has to offer. We had the pleasure of watching 8 howler monkeys playing in a tree on Sunday morning. We were all so mesmerized, nobody thought to grab their camera and take pictures! There were many colorful birds to watch but we were most thrilled to see the number of different butterfly species around the pool area.

We found we tended to stay at the Casa rather than doing much exploring as it was such a peaceful environment to relax, catch up on some reading and flop into the pool when you felt the urge!

Ana and Freddy were the perfect hosts making sure our every need was met. Ana is a wonderful chef who tends to want to overfeed you but the leftovers make for some great snacks.

4 wheel drive highly recommended to get up hill to property but once there the views are spectacular. It is a definitely a Vista worth waking up to.

If you want to get away Casa Loma is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing vacation we had. When we arrived Ana & Freddy were there to greet us. They make you feel very welcome. The house is beautiful and very well maintained. Playa Carillo about a 7 minute drive from the house is a beautiful serene beach. If you want more to do Samara is about a 15 minute drive. There are stores and restaurants supplies.

We had a wonderful time I would totally recommend this house!

Absolutely Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in, this property took my breath away! The location, the layout, the decor, the infinity pool, the sunsets...everything exceeded our expectations. The beauty aside, it was Ana and Freddie who made our vacation extra special. She is a wonderful chef and so helpful, but without feeling intrusive. The personalized service made you feel so pampered. This place is what I will think of whenever I hear the word Paradise. I hope to be able to return someday.

If you are considering this destination, book it. You won't regret it!
