"My husband and I spent our anniversary, kid less and without distractions in this absolutely beautiful paradise secluded from everyone. It was FABULOUS! We couldn't have picked a better spot and are already planning another trip.
Diana, I can't thank you enough for opening your home to us nomad vacationers. No hotel could compare to your person jewel. Big thanks to the best support team we've dealt with thus far, Leticia and Jaime were so helpful.
Thank you again, for the best anniversary trip we could have had!
p.s. I thought we had submitted a review already, but I couldn't find it. So sorry for the delay or if this is a duplicate review."

"This is the ultimate vacation in a beautiful country of Costa Rica. Nothing is more precious than friends & family gathering to create memory of a lifetime. Designed with such in mind, this house is located on the top of a hill, and has stunning views, in a secluded, gated, and private neighborhood, yet it is only 20 minutes to drive to area beaches & other attractions. The bedrooms are spacious, the kitchen is fully equipped, and the back yard and pool area are amazing! We enjoyed coming back to this calming house after busy days of sightseeing. Pool area is so pretty and green/turquoise water is refreshingly cooler than the ocean. Beautiful birds and star gazers are in heaven with no pollution to night sky. The only weird thing is that sun sets at 6pm....equator is really close...so 12h of daylight is all you get...we got used to it real quick and enjoyed getting up at 7:30 and fell asleep way earlier than back at home in Canada. The home feels very secure and has a safe in the bedroom so all the stuff is 100% ok to leave. We however did not lock almost anything.
Sometimes the pictures of the house don't really live up to the expectations but that was not the case with this house in San Mateo. As soon as you enter the house, you are blown away by the open layout and beauty of the house/patio/pool and the panoramic views from the patio! I can truly say this is the most beautiful house we have ever lived in!
We had the most amazing time staying at this house! The house is even nicer than a hotel, everything is so well organized, not only in the house, but the owners also send you a complete and very helpful welcome guide. Everything was perfect and exceeded our expectations. This home is truly a gem and we will definitely come back.

Wonderful 1st visit to Costa Rica - Wonderful home
"This was our 1st visit to Costa Rica and what a beautiful place - Joe thank you for sharing your home and retreat - it was absolutely WONDERFUL - we stayed 7 days in Atenas and had a great time - we used Walts Taxi and Tour service for all our needs - Walt is wonderful, Luis our Atenas taxi driver was very professional, friendly and always on time. We took (3) tours with Walt, Miguel and Jennifer they were absolutely the greatest tour guides we could have - we did 7 Tico Town Tour - was alot of interesting information, San Jose town tour - not our favorite and would not do unless you just want to spend the day seeing the capital of Costa Rica - lastly we did Poas Volcano and La Paz gardens and waterfall - WONDERFUL would recommend this trip, all day trip but well worth it - the Volcano was wonderful land the gardens were stunning. A long hike to the waterfalls but well worth it.
Joe was wonderful at communicating with us and making sure we had what we needed for our trip - Elias was a great groundskeeper - he was always there when we needed him but very descreet when we were on the property and just doing our own thing - he lives on property so is there anytime you need him. Again a great house and very peaceful and quiet - we did miss having TV but made netflex work for us and the speakers for our music was very relaxing - Time to read a good book and Joe has a great selection. We cooked meals at the house on the BBQ and kitchen that has everything you will need but the food - Ate at Kaye's gringo kitchen - great place to meet other expats and great conversations - they treat you like family, also ate at La Finca great pizza. Farmers market is a must for veggies and fruits (Fridays only)."
