Guestbook comments from the owner

Cristina - Dahlia, thank you for the introduction to Santa Teresa and loved Batik. Cristina, you have a special touch, great vision, and the homes are really something. The effort you both made to make our time exceptional really made the difference. We miss our breakfast and morning chats with you both, Myra, and waking up with the storms, surf, and monkeys.

We look forward to staying in touch. Dahlia, special thanks for looking after us and we enjoyed meeting your family. You really helped us a lot :-). THANK YOU.

Don't miss staying here

  • 5 of 5

The photos can't capture the beauty of this home - it was perfect for our family of seven. Cristina and the staff were fantastic in every way, and we highly recommend Casa Macondo, Santa Teresa and Playa Hermosa. Antonio the manager was super friendly and available, and we couldn't be more pleased with him. The beach is just a short walk, and we went back and forth between the pool and the beach all day. The open style of the home was great, and its easy to shut the door and cool down the bedrooms at night. Thank you Cristina, Antonio, and staff.

Warm, welcoming and peaceful. Would return.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Costa Rica and we picked the right place to stay. The property was warm and welcoming and we enjoyed how the home was open but could be closed if necessary. Our host and property manager, Isabella is a friendly and warm person. She stayed late to welcome us on our check in and despite the late hour took the time to ensure we were familiar with the property.

The home itself is beautiful with an open plan, rich wood throughout, and a well equipped kitchen. The open bathrooms were fantastic and the kids loved them. Being able to close rooms off and use the air conditioner (if needed/wanted) was nice.

Isabella stopped by every day to see how we were doing and to make reservations for activities for us from zip-lining to ATV rentals. She even brought a bunch of bananas fresh from trees on the property.

The staff came in daily to clean the home and pool and we barely noticed they were there. Friendly and efficient is the best way to describe them. The security guards at night were there to ensure "all is well" and if we hadn't seen and talked to them, we would not have known they were there.

One thing we did learn during our visit to Costa Rica, everything is "just 15 minutes away", at least for the locals.

We highly recommend Casa Macondo for anyone considering a visit to a more remote area of Costa Rica.

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We love Batik. We always feel like very welcome family members. Cristina and Isabella know everything about the area and the best activities, restaurants, places to see, what to do on a rainy day! Our entire group had a wonderful time. I hope when our children are ready to marry, that they want to have the wedding here! It is relaxing, invigorating and beautiful, all at the same time.

Our stay at Casa Macondo was incredible. The villas are secured behind a gate, so we felt completely safe. The grounds are immaculate and beautiful. The villas are brilliantly designed to bring the outdoors in, and are oriented in a way that affords complete privacy from other guests. The wonderful tropical trail to the beach was pleasant. Dahlia is the on site manager, but I hate to say it that way because she is so much more than that. She's a delightful, knowledgeable and extremely helpful host, guide, translator, etc. She made sure we had everything we needed at all times.

The Nicoya peninsula IS Costa's worth the adventure to make your way to this more remote part of the country.

We can't wait to come back next year.

A little piece of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Costa Rica and spent 4 nights at Casa Macondo (we did not utilize the Casa Casita - an additional bedroom and bath) and enjoyed every minute of it. The management was wonderful. They were very accommodating and coordinated all our activities and recommended restaurants. The private pool was key! It was so hot that to have the option to jump into the pool at any time of day was wonderful. The beach is a lovely 5 minute walk from the house. They also have all night security at the gate so you feel extremely safe. If you are looking for a relaxing, remote and beautiful location I would highly recommend Casa Maconda.
