Grecia cottage description
Mango Vista is located on a private 17 acre, gated property surrounded by natural vegetation, cane and coffee fields in the community of Rincon de Salas de Grecia. The property overlooks the Central Valley, mountains and volcanoes. There are 4 other private residences on the property, one of which operates a B&B (no affiliation). The 2,500 ft elevation provides lovely breezes for daytime and night-time comfort without the need for air conditioning or heating. There is a private nature trail down to the Rio Rosales. It's a bird-lover's paradise - most recent count of 100 species on our property alone. Relax on the large covered patio surrounded by flowers, mango trees, and palms in a comfortable rocking chair, a hammock chair or just sit at the patio table and experience Pura Vida!
Mango Vista is a semi-detached casita. The rental unit is small (650 sq. ft.) but has a well equipped eat-in kitchen, utensils, flatware, dishes, cookware, automatic coffee maker, toaster, food processor or blender, microwave, three-burner electric stove with oven, and large refrigerator. There are 2 bedrooms, one with twin beds (which can be converted into a king size bed), the second bedroom has 1 double bed. There are 2 bathrooms with showers.

Linens, bath towels, paper products and liquid hand soaps are provided. Covered parking is located beside the bodega which houses the washing machine. Garbage/recycling pick-up once per week, maid service 3 days per week (schedules vary at Christmas and Easter).
The nearest town is Grecia, population around 50,000, a 10 minute drive by car, 20 by bus. The shops, supermarkets, banks and restaurants of Grecia offer everything you need. The Friday night/Saturday morning Farmers Market is not to be missed! A further 10 minute drive takes you to Sarchi, a tourist town known for its painted ox carts and souvenirs. Poás Volcano is less than an hour's drive. Day or overnight excursions can be made to rain forest preserves, botanical gardens, butterfly gardens, bird zoo, a serpentarium, coffee tours, Arenal Volcano or eco-challenges of bungee jumping, white-water rafting and canopy zip-line tours to name a few. The beautiful beaches of the central Pacific coast are 60 minutes away.

Mango Vista en Grecia Costa Rica...SUPERB!
Mango Vista en Grecia Costa Rica...SUPERB!
What a wonderful place to stay in this area of Costa Rica! We had a wonderful time and the villa was completely COMPLETE with everything one could want. The neighbors were helpful and extremely kind and knowledgeable. I am hoping to move to this area in the not-too-distant future! I would rate this SIX stars at least. Thanks

We just returned from a fabulous week in Costa Rica. The home we rented at Posada Mimosa was exactly as it was portrayed in the pictures and description. The view from the covered patio was breathtaking. The people living and working at Posada Mimosa were very friendly and helped us with any questions we had about the area. This was our first visit to Costa Rica so we asked for a driver to pick us up at the airport and take us into Grecia to buy groceries before taking us to the house. The driver was very helpful and made us feel comfortable in our new surroundings. This home sets outside of the town of Grecia. Although we could have rented a car or traveled by taxi, we chose to use the public bus system. It was available to us every half hour throughout the day. In Grecia you could switch to another bus and travel on to other areas. We did go to Sarchi one day during our visit but soon found that Grecia had everything we wanted. Cafe Delicioso was across from the town square and soon became our favorite place to sit and have coffee or a meal. We were very pleased with the choice we made and will definitely make plans to return. We would absolutely recommend this property to friends or family. If you choose this area to visit, We would highly suggest that you learn to speak the local language so you can benefit from the natural beauty of the people. If you are looking for continuous entertainment this is not the place to go.

Manager response: Thank you! We make every effort to ensure that our guests are comfortable and that there are no surprises when they arrive. We look forward to hosting you, your family and friends whenever they have the opportunity to visit us. Pura Vida
My hustand, myself and daughter stayed at this lovely cottage last week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The photos you see and description are accurate and the property is maintained very well. You have to be there to appreciate the beauty of this property.... the temperature in the central valley is ideal with cool breezes in the evening which is great for sleeping. The mornings are lovely and enjoying the paito with the hummingbirds, butterflies and beautiful vista is like being in paradise. I would recommend this property ....it is only a half-hour drive from san jose and is fairly central to alot of costa rica attractions. We were there a week and were able to visit three attraction; La Poaz waterfall park, arenal and tabacon resort and La Villa Blanca in the Monteverde Cloud Forset. The owners of this property are very nice people to deal with and we feel we will return again in the future.
