The Trip of a Lifetime
The Trip of a Lifetime
We had such an incredible experience on our trip to Costa Rica and this beautiful villa. The pictures are accurate, but still don't give justice to the beauty that surrounded us! It was truly indescribable! We were situated directly in the rainforest with a view of the Pacific Ocean. The home is luxurious with top quality designer furniture and accessories. At the property we enjoyed complete privacy! However, we were just a few minutes drive to several gourmet restaurants offering differing European specialities. Our favorites were Citrus and Exotica. The "swimming hole", which is just a short walk form the villa was a highlight of our trip. We also enjoyed the waterfall that is located on the property. We were amazed that we could experience such natural beauty in such a private location. We truly felt as if we had our own piece of paradise. We enjoyed Playa Ventanas Beach and its caves as well as our guided horseback riding tour through the rainforest. These were just a short drive away from the villa. I would recommend this villa to anyone seeking a vacation that is out of the ordinary!
