About Stewart Stein
A native of South Florida, Stewart first came to Costa Rica to study in the University in 1972.

Concurrently, he started Paradise Management and has been working now for over 10 years in this endeavor. Stewart, an experience entrepreneur, is responsible for all sales and marketing activities for Paradise Management.
Why Stewart Stein chose Hatillo
Villa Buena Vista is managed by Paradise Management; a company with over 10 years of experience, expertise and the professionalism for making your vacation in Costa Rica magical.

We do our best to be the best host!

This home was perfect for our family vacation with friends. There was just enough space for two families to enjoy each other, and have time alone when we needed it. We especially enjoyed the pool and the outdoor areas. The view from the house is amazing! You will need a car for this property. It is on a steep hill that you have to be comfortable going up and down. There are a lot of these in Costa Rica, but the view is always worth the hike. We drove to all of our activities that included whale watching, waterfalls, rainforests, beaches and hot springs. I also highly recommend getting a chef. Johnathan's meals were delicious! We had a great time, and would definitely recommend this home to other adventurous travelers.
Dear Tracey it's a pleasure for us to know that our guests enjoy the villas and services we offer; that keeps us trying to be the bests. Whenever you want to enjoy our beautiful country, our community will be waiting for you. Paradise Management Staff.
The house was exactly as advertised. Beautiful!!
The concierge, Oscar, was very friendly and accommodating and so was the rest of his staff. We had a few minor issues with the house initially, but Oscar got things taken care of right away.
Location was fantastic. There are lots of activities in the area. Manuel Antonio National Park is close by and is well worth a visit (but you need to hire a guide). The nearby little town of Dominical is a charming small town with many decent restaurants. We went rafting, visited several local waterfalls and swim holes, the boys took surfing lessons, etc., etc.
One of the highlights was actually the first night. We had a couple of birthdays to celebrate and Oscar made arrangements for a local chef to come to the house and cook dinner for us. The Chef, Christopher, prepared what was probably the best meal we had during the two weeks we stayed in Costa Rica. Highly recommended.
Dear Sven, thank you very much for your words. We are really glad to know that you had a wonderful time in our Villa Buena Vista and in our country. Fortunately, we could manage to handle the issues as they arose, we always try to give our guests the best experience and prompt answers to any situation. Our villas will be waiting for your next visit! Warmly, Paradise Management Staff.
Perfect family getaway!
This home perfectly met our needs for a family getaway. We were centrally located to so many adventures-water falls, surfing/boogey boarding, fishing, zip lining, guided nature walk at Manuel Antonio park. The home was a complete respite from any activity on the days we wanted privacy, quiet & rest. It had an incredible view of the Pacific Ocean from every room. We enjoyed cooking & grilling the fish we caught each night. The kitchen was well equipped. We loved the hot tub & swimming pool. Oscar assisted us from the moment our reservation was confirmed. He was incredibly responsive, informative & offered endless assistance with transportation to & from the airport, a car waiting for us at the house (definitely a 4X4!), activities, answering endless questions. He cheerfully checked in on us to ensure everything was going well. We all hope to return....soon!
Dear Ed, thank you so much for your words. We are really glad to know you had a nice time and that our services reached your expectations, we try to do our best so that we can help you to create a memorable trip. We hope you will visit us again soon.
Warmly, Paradise Management Staff.
Superior Costa Rica house
We have 6 children and have never been to Costa Rica. We picked this VRBO because of secluded location and it had a pool for the kids. We literally could not have picked a better place. The house was so modern and had everything and more that we needed. Each room had its own bathroom and the rooms are big. The kitchen was really nice and had everything we needed. There was also a cooler and umbrellas there that we took to the beach each day. That was nice!! The pool was even bigger than it looks in the pic and was so nice to get into each day. There are also nice lounge chairs and umbrellas by the pool. The views were exquisite and the sunsets were beyond description. Even my children were in awe of the beauty.
The house was super easy to get to and gated, which I really appreciated. Also there was a guard all night who is super friendly. The house is super close to Dominical, which is a great town for surfing and super fun to walk around. A little further south and there is another fantastic beach. The area the house is in was our favorite. We traveled a bunch and always thought that area was the best.
Quepos, which is about 40 minutes north had really nice restaurants. We ate there often. Great sports bar with cheap appetizers and we got to watch the final four!!
Also, Oscar was the concierge.. He met us there the night we got in at 1am. Helped us figure everything out in the house and got us situated. He also scheduled a horseback trip to the waterfalls for us which was our favorite!! Definitely recommend it!!! My kids wanted to do it twice!! You’ll find it in the book that Oscar has made for guest in the house.
We did 2 fishing trips and didn’t like them. Just FYI
Would we come back to this exact house ? ABSOLUTELY!!
Dear Christy, thank you for taking the time to write this beautiful review!

We are also pleased to know our services reached your expectations. We will be waiting for your next visit!

This house is amazing! We lived the space, the views and swimming in the pool.
I highly recommend this home. It’s really ideal for a family looking to get away from it all. The sunset views are great from this castle on the hill.
Dear Matthew, thank you for choosing to stay at our property! It's a pleasure to serve you and provide all the best amenities and services we can. We hope your next visit is around the corner.
