Eden Estate - END OF SEASON DISCOUNT!!

Manuel Antonio villa

3 bedrooms / 3 bathrooms / sleeps 7

“Fabulous location & villa” We arrived after a stunning scenic drive through acres of palms and picturesque villages alongside a meandering river. Expecting disappointment after such a start, we braced ourselves; a steep climb and we reached a narrow ridge. As the ridge broadened out the villa revealed itself, rendering us speechless. A stunning location: sea views; cradled sides and rear with mist-shrouded mountain rainforest peaks. Luis, the manager a loyal friend of the owner, is one of a kind. He was discretion itself, sometimes walking up to service the pool at five am, before working on the family farm. The villa is a curved structure framed in glass; a central atrium topped by a massive overhanging roof bringing shade to the huge curved terraces gracing the large master suits on the first floor. All glass, with stunning 360 degree views. The curved horizon pool includes a set of canals into the atrium and traversed by a wooden bridge. After an extensive shop we settled into the villa and didn't move till it was time to leave. We never felt safer or more in love with a place. Lastly, more about Luis: he is Eden Estate - approaching all aspects of his job with dedication to make your stay memorable. Nothing is too much trouble. One morning he arrived with a beautifully-attired horse: one of the many wild horses roaming the estate, captured, tamed and trained by locals for Luis. "A surprise!" he exclaimed. Having never mounted a horse in my life I did have some reservations. But, we enjoyed this quiet steed as Luis walked her gracefully around the grounds. After that we became friends and he regaled us with stories of family life past and present; his travels to the us, South america and his dreams for the future. Booking was easy, the directions superb and, all in all, Steve (the owner) was very keen to make sure that we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Recommended for a peaceful vacation, yet within easy reach of the Central Pacific coast and the Manuel antonio area.

Playas del Coco apartment

3 bedrooms / 4 bathrooms / sleeps 8

“Absolutely amazing!” There was nothing we didn't love about this vacation! The condo was spacious, clean and had all the creature comforts of home. Wifi is always a huge plus when traveling out of the states and makes things so much easier for us to keep up with. The view is absolutely breathtaking. We enjoyed massages on the patio not once but twice as it was so beautiful and the massage was so fantastic that we couldn't help ourselves! It is conveniently located and we easily traveled around to different beaches. We saw monkey's everyday on the way in to the complex, such a neat experience. The beach club is conveniently located right next to Father Roosters which quickly became our favorite hang out spot (Try a mint margarita! it's a must!) I would recommend this vacation rental for anyone looking to relax and enjoy the view or head out for adventures and come home to a safe, secure and clean place.

Casa Montezuma - Steps to the Beach, Private, Safe

Montezuma house

3 bedrooms / 5 bathrooms / sleeps 6

“The best of Costa Rica and awesome People(rhyme, sort of)” All amenities listed are true so I won't be redundant there. We were lucky enough to stay at CasaMontezuma for a month and there was not a moment of regret with our decision at any time. The house itself is amazing, a beautiful structure indeed. With 5 people there it never seemed crowded and after staying at another house last year and visiting other's homes I can say that this place is unique and a good value. The outdoor areas are big and really comfortable, and with the incredible weather we spent most time lounging there. The location of the house is pretty ideal. Literally about a 3 minute walk to the breath taking and secluded beach where you can feel like you own the place many times of day. You also get to be equal distance from both Montezuma and Cabuya, two really cool and different types of villages. An easy walk, bike(bikes included) ride or bus trip to either. There is a hill behind the house with superb views of the cost and a pretty close by neighbor is a fisherman who sells the freshest seafood nearly daily from his yard. The owners Donna and Tito are who you want to rent from, really. They are endlessly informative and helpful, and friendly and entertaining as well. From day one all the way to the end they were great. Many times Donna offered rides on her way to town and assisted with planning and arranging day trips we took which would have otherwise been less successful. Tito has a vast knowledge of all things Costa Rican and his well of insights will have you feeling like a local. Casamontezuma really is a winner, cause you feel like you are at home, less like in a rental. But not just an ordinary home but a castle, cause it is cleaned for you every week!! Book with confidence and have the most relaxing time of your life. P.s. If the listed reasons don't sell you also know there are two resident dogs with personality to spare and a very charming pig and I can't imagine better ambassadors to Costa Rica than those three.

Villa 4 Las Brisas-Award Winner!

Playa Hermosa villa

3 bedrooms / 3 bathrooms / sleeps 8

“Paradise...check” My family found paradise ...Playa Hermosa. A very quaint town not overly run with tourist attractions. This condo was amazing. It was clean and comfortable with many fantastic amenities. We grilled out during a big football game here in the states. We swam laps and splashed around in the clean and quiet pool just feet from the condo. We were able to capture beautiful sunsets from the second floor balcony. The property staff also gave us limes and bananas picked on site that morning. A few step from the condo gets you to the ocean where the waves are crashing and the monkeys are playing over head. The on-site managers were friendly, kind, and very helpful suggesting things to do and see. The area was very safe. We all agreed we will return!

Cariari Condo w/View (+ Free Airport Welcome & Paid Tours, buses, Restaurants)

Ciudad Cariari apartment

2 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 6

“Will Definitely Come Back” The city of San Jose is such a large area, location just cannot be stressed enough. The location of this condo is perfect. It's in a quite location, so you can relax and enjoy your time at the condo. But it's also close enough to walk to the nearby mall and shopping area so you can get food and other things without having to pay the expense of a taxi. (In Costa Rica taxi's are very expensive.) It's also close to the airport which is very convenient. Being only ten minutes away from the airport is always a plus. Then there's the condo itself. The setup is so nice that you really lack nothing. There's a kitchen you can use if you don't want to go out for food. You can do your laundry right in the condo. There is phone that you can use to call the States for free, WiFi internet, cable TV and a Blu-Ray player. The condo was very clean the beds were very comfortable. Can't wait to stay here again!

Manuel Antonio villa

6 bedrooms / 7 bathrooms / sleeps 30

“Debra's 50th Birthday” By far one of the best vacations ever. Casa Espanola is a fabulous, upscale villa that is spacious, modern and clean. I traveled with a group of 20 people and everyone was in awe. I probably will never go to a hotel again after the Casa Espanola experience. The dining area was big enough for everyone, thus producing a total family vibe at mealtime. The rooms are big and the beds are huge. Chef Glenda and her daughter were the absolute best and the menu selections are just too many to name. The ride from SJO airport was 2 1/2 hrs but no one seemed to mind the long ride because it gave you an opportunity to sightsee. We also took the local bus in Manuel Antonio for about .67 cents....what a deal. I can't say enough about this fabulous place. I can't wait to go back. Thanks to Amy, Hazel and the staff at Casa Espanola.

“Great Costa Rica getaway!” Costa Rica is such a beautiful country and we were able to enjoy it at this great condo! It was very affordable and had everything we needed. There is a pool right outside the door (which was never crowded) and we had a view of a beautiful waterfall. The other condo owners/tenants were wonderful as well! Property Management was great and helped us out with logistics, day trips and car rental details!

Playa Matapalo house

“Exhilarating” The property manager, Alex, met us at the airport and took us to the home, carried our luggage in and made sure we were comfortable. The house is beautiful, with a spacious deck and dipping pool, surrounded by the natural beauty (sights and sounds) of the jungle. We felt very safe because of the 24-hour security guard at the gate. The "wildlife", however, gave us a few starts! Once we got used to the Jurassic Park sized insects and bullfrogs, we settled in and were very happy. We were close to Dominical beach and not too far from Manuel antonio Park to visit daily. We loved the zipline experience the best. This is a great place to stay if you want to be secluded from the entire world, and yet close enough to go visit places. I would recommend it for those who love nature, or just want to be away from it all!

About Costa Rica

Costa Rica calls to mind cloud forests, toucans, white sand beaches, and palm trees. Many visitors receive their first impressions of this ecotourism destination point from the colorful wildlife and mangrove trees of Manuel Antonio National Park. Whether you spend your vacation hiking through the cloud forest, exploring volcanoes, or surfing on Costa Rica's perfect blue waves, you'll never forget your visit to this protected paradise. The wildlife spotting alone will challenge your imagination. Just a few of the cast of characters you may encounter here include humpback whales, Baird's tapirs, howler monkeys, jaguars, leatherback sea turtles, and brilliantly colored macaws. While you are here, sample the delicious sweet churros of San Jose, relax on the beach, or go rafting, rappelling, and zip-lining through the rainforest canopy. Whether you stay in a cabin rental near Montezuma or a luxury beachfront villa near the Playa Jaco, you'll never run out of breathtaking experiences in Costa Rica.

Here are a few additional suggestions of things to do in Costa Rica:

  • Mountain biking: The variety of off-road paths and cattle trails around Costa Rica makes this an ideal spot for mountain biking.
  • Surfing: If you're serious about surfing, you may want to find a vacation rental close to Tamarindo Beach, famous for great surfing.
  • La Paz Waterfall Garden: Just a short trip from San Jose, the Waterfall Garden is not to be missed.
  • Sloth Sanctuary: Meet rescued sloths and learn about these extraordinary animals while observing them in their natural habitat.
  • Tour a coffee plantation: Find out more about this miracle bean from the coffee growers who understand it best.

No matter what time of you year you visit, the weather in Costa Rica is beautiful. Luckily, vacation rentals are widely available through the year in Costa Rica. Don't forget to bring your camera and your sense of adventure.

Open Plan Villa (New Pool) Ocean View & Monkeys
Awesome Views, Spacious Comfort

Jean’s place more than met our expectations. The views from the decks were spectular and made for great breakfasts, afternoon drinks, and dinners. The house easily accommodated our three generation family of seven. The kitchen, bathrooms, etc all were fine, and the pool was the best place to be on hot afternoons. We did not have a car and did not miss one. Supermarkets and little eating places were within easy walking, but did require going back up the steep driveway. The monkeys visited almost every day and put on good shows for the kids. A wonderful place for our family celebration.see more

Chill

Quite near the beach, 5 min walk down to the beach. 15 min to Santa Teresa center by car. We had a family gathering, total 8 pax and we rented 4 rooms and we felt like home in this beautiful house and garden. There was a good kitchen, bbq chargrill and we cooked every day. There is also a nice patio with a big table. We enjoyed our stay and our host Fernando was friendly and accommodating. I can recommend Fernando´s El Chante Surf House to everyone, you gona love your stay there.see more

Amazing condo in Jacó Costa Rica

I stayed at Vist Las Palmas Pacific Paradise in Jacó Costa Rica for a week with my lady (Jen) and two other couples. Going to Jaco Costa Rica was a great vacation. The condo ( Vista Las Palmas Pacific Paradise) made it that much better. The owner (Aracelly H ) was very helpful and friendly. The condo was just amazing, beautiful,quiet and very secure. Large enough for three couples to live and not get in each other’s way. The condo had all the amenities you will need, the washer and dryer was a big plus. I would definitely book though Aracelly H again. Don’t think we could have stayed in a better place in Jacósee more

3 days at Playa Flamingo in Oceana condo

Beautiful condo with balcony overlooking beach and perfect sunsets. Several fine restaurants in area if including Potrera just a mile north. We enjoyed Coco Loco on Flamingo beach and Forketta in Portrera most of all. Condo very clean with one minor problem with leaky refrigerator water filter quickly addressed. The master bath had a design flaw with bathtub shower combo in allowing water to collect around rear of tub where tile adjoins...had to sponge area after each shower...not a big deal but unexpected in such a beautiful condo. The multiple AC units worked flawlessly and pool was perfect for lap swimming and usually unused. Beach here is safe and gradual with gentle surf....perfect. We would definitely return in future.see more
Playa Grande Casitas
Awesome place, awesome location, awesome host!

Other than the road leading into this place - Manfred's property was absolutely awesome. For those looking to reach a variety of world-class beaches in a short period of time, Playa Grande is one of the best "home" locations. We were able to get to Tamarindo Beach, Conchal Beach (favorite) and Playa Flamingo in 25 to 35 minutes each and of course walking distance to Playa Grande Beach. Also accomplished day trips to the Samara and Nicoya and Santa Cruz. The Casitas was clean and comfortable, a market was down the street for needed essentials (although a full-blown supermarket was also close to stock for the week) and there were several options for breakfast, lunches and dinners. We spent most of our mornings prior to heading out to explore on the outdoor terrace having breakfast or just catching up via the wifi, which was faster than any I've experience before in Costa Rica. Manfred - if we come back to Costa Rica, we'll be reaching out!see more
