  • Absolutely Wonderful!

    "We just returned from a fabulous 12-day trip to Costa Rica. Villa Gecko was a delightful home to return to after our daily adventures. The villa is clean, very comfortable, well-maintained with a well-equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, all enhanced by a lovely patio and pool. Villa Gecko is located within short walking distance of the the pool, the beach and of Picante (Pez Vela restaurant).Thank you Mary for making us feel so welcome in your charming home. We definitely felt the Pura Vida and we would certainly return to Villa Gecko!"

  • First Trip to Costa Rica

    "Our first trip to Costa Rica will be a memorable one. Our stay at Villa Mar Azul was peaceful, pictureque and private. It was great to have our own pool to cool off in. We heard the howler monkeys in the morning and enjoyed watching the beautiful birds everywhere. The caretaker, Carlos was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. We would recommend it to nature lovers."

  • Wonderful Stay!!!

    "We visited Costa Rica last year and decided we would like to visit again. We came across this place and decided to give it a try. The property exceeded our expectations from the pictures. It is beautiful and peaceful. The Property Manager was very helpful and the check in/out process was quick and smooth. Loved having 24-hour security, they walk the entire property constantly 24-hours. Vince, the owner, gave us so much information, there was little left to research. It was nice to come back to a beautiful, clean, and comfortable home away from home after our touring, diving/snorkeling adventures. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and would highly recommend it to anyone."

  • Stephanie, Asheville, NC

    "Twelve of our family members stayed at Villa Sonita. We couldn't have had a more perfect vacation and Villa Sonita was the backdrop for it all! It was private and secure, but close to everything. We had plenty of space in the house for privacy, but could also come together when we wanted to. Most mornings we sat on the back porch and watched the display of wildlife and in the evenings at least 15 geckos would gather around the outdoor lights to eat bugs. There is a lime tree in the yard that had fruit and a mango tree in the front that provided us with many snacks. From the house we could easily walk to town, restaurants, the beach and the Nosara Yoga Institute. In between those activities we always came back to the pool to cool off. It was an amazing trip for all of us and I can't wait to go back!!"
