Guestbook comments from the owner

Not sure where to stay in Costa Rica? THIS IS THE PLACE! Fantastic house with phenomenal views. Tom and Lin are wonderful to work with. They are offer multiple suggestions of places to eat and locations to explore. This house serves at a great jumping off point for: Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin- where we enjoyed a nice hike to a powerful waterfall and painting ourselves in mud before going in the hot springs. Llanos de Cortez waterfall- you hike in and out, getting to see four waterfalls and swim at the base of one. Tamarindo- a cute little surfing town with lots of local art shops. Rooster Rica's is a must go to for dinner on the beach one night. Playa Hermosa and Playa del Coca are close by, within 15 minutes of the house, for grocery shopping, we recommend the mini luperon or super luperon, and for time on the beach and eating out. In particular in Playa Hermosa the restaurant Coco Viquez has a great authentic Costa Rican buffet lunch for $8 US. Marlin del Rey Catamaran Sailing Snorkeling Tours in Playa del Coco is AMAZING where you get to snorkel, swim to a private beach, enjoy dinner and a breath taking sunset- another MUST DO on your trip, but make sure to book the sunset cruise, you won't be disappointed. Angry Goat's brewery, found inside of Coconutz sports bar in Playa del Coco is a fun stop and the co-owner is from Colorado, which is a bonus because we are from Colorado too. If you have a full day, make sure, when you can, to get back to the house for sunset. The view from this house could be on a post card- simply stated- it is breath taking. Carmen, the onsite house supervisor, is wonderful to work with. She is friendly and incredibly knowledgable about the area. Daily she would check in with us to see if we needed anything and ask about where we were going for the day- talk about first class service. The house had everything you could need- from pots, pans, plates, glasses to beach towels and float items for the pool. With this house you not only get your own private pool you also get access to the community pool with is about a quarter mile from the house. If you are worried about security don't be at this house. At the base of the community this is a gate with a guard on duty 24/7. Up by the house there is a guard for the eight homes located near by that rounds 24/7 AND the house has a security system too. If I get the opportunity to go back to Costa Rica- THIS house is where I will stay. Pura Vida!

Phenomenal view

  • 5 of 5

If you only get to rent one house in Costa Rica- THIS IS THE HOUSE! This is an absolutely beautiful home with a phenomenal view. Tom and Lin were AMAZING to work with. They offered many suggestions of what to do in the area. The location of this home was a great jumping off place to Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin-a fantastic adventure park where we chose to hike to powerful waterfall and go to hot springs where we painted ourselves in mud. Also from this location you are only about an hour away from Lllanos de Cortez Waterfall- a must DO because you can actually swim at the base of this waterfall. Another great excursion recommended by Tom and Lin was the Marlin del Rey Catamaran Sailing Snorkeling Tours- if you do this one, do the sunset cruise, you won't be disappointed.

The house was well stocked with pots, pans, glasses, plates and etc. We ate the majority of our meals at home with convenient grocery shopping at the Luperon grocery stores in Hermosa and Coco. Security at this home was not an issue because not only is there a guard at the front gate of the development, there is also an easy to use security system for the house and a guard that rounds the eight homes on top of the hill 24/7.

We enjoyed our own private pool at the house along with going to the community pool, which was a short drive from the house or a hearty walk. The house pool had noodles and a mat which we enjoyed using some mornings after having a leisurely breakfast.

We ended up traveling to Costa Rica during the rainy season but it ended up being a GREAT time to go. Not only were things (excursions, food and etc) cheaper but many of the places we went to were less crowded. When we went to the waterfalls and the hot springs we were the ONLY people there- WOW! It was almost unbelievable. And when it did rain, it only lasted for 10-15 minutes.

Our house supervisor Carmen was incredible! She was a wealth of knowledge and recommended many great, affordable places to eat around the area that had a true Costa Rican flare. Carmen also checked in with us daily to see if we needed anything.

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and it could not have gone better. We are excited to go back and when we do, we hope this home will be available. Trust me- it is THE PLACE TO BE!

Our Favorite place yet

  • 5 of 5

This home was the best place we have used to call home away from home while on vacation. The pool offered Breathtaking sunsets views, the patio was set up so homey and we enjoyed it every evening while we would BBQ dinner and the house had all the amenities we needed. We felt assured with the guard shack at the base of the hill and the constant surveillance from the guards walking the properties and we loved the ease checking in and out.

Will be recommending this gorgeous area to our friends!

Thank you for a spectacular vacation!

Beautiful! Well represented, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying her. We are a family of four adults and the space is perfect and well appointed. The location is excellent for tours in the Ricon de la Vieja area and should seriously be considered for this reason. The kitchen has everything you need to cook at home or you are easily within ten minutes to several decent restaurants! The house manager was particularly helpful and always responded if needed. The sunsets are glorious and I wouldn't hesitate to book this home again! Pure Vida!

Absolutely delightful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our month long stay on the mountaintop was perfect. The pool was ideal for swimming a couple of times a day. Great view, especially for a photographer. The sunsets were breathtaking. A romantic hideaway, for sure. Everything you can possibly need is provided in this lovely, immaculate three bedroom home. Highly recommended. Our favorite place to relax and enjoy the best of Costa Rica. Hoping to return next year. The owners and property manager were great help with our questions. Twenty minutes from the Liberia Airport which makes it even more ideal after a long flight to CR. We frequented a number of very nice restaurants and felt our month of dining was the best. Need to rest? This is your best bet for a perfect escape.
