  • A tropical Utopia

    "We had promised ourselves an extended holiday somewhere in the tropics to escape another English winter. We researched extensively and Costa Rica came to the fore with its credentials for climate, fauna and wildlife. We chose Carillo and managed to stretch our visit to five weeks including travel from UK. We liaised with the owner who gave countless tips and helpful advice, we would recommend new visitors to do the same. Arriving at the house and stepping out onto the deck was just breathtaking, with views over the dry forest to the Pacific Ocean, humming birds darting in all directions, and howler monkeys occupying the adjacent Balsa tree. We used the upstairs master bedroom which gave an even wider vista, waking up every morning at daybreak to the sounds of parrots, woodpeckers and innumerable other birds was a humbling experience. We found the house easy to manage with a well laid out kitchen with big fridge freezer and generous oven. The outside lower deck has a BBQ and seating for alfresco dining. The pool below was perfect for cooling off after a hot day on the nearby beach. A 4wd is an absolute must as not all roads are paved, and we enjoyed exploring the numerous coves and beaches within easy reach. We also explored further to the Monteverde cloud forest and The Arenal which was another piece of advice given to us by the owner. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we look forward to returning in the future."

  • Wonderful holiday accommodation!

    "My husband and I just returned from a 2 week stay at this condo and we had a wonderful time. Frank picked us up at the airport, took us for a grocery shop and a tour thru the little town before taking us to the condo. He was so helpful and was able to supply lots of useful information to help us get started. As for the condo itself, it was lovely, well supplied, a great home away from home feel to it. There were a couple suggestions that we gave to Frank and he seemed more than willing to address them. The condo complex itself was a friendly little community where people shared ideas and suggestions. As stated in the ad, the pool was the best around the area. We look forward to going back again soon. Thanks so much Frank & Linda!"

  • Exclusive Beach Front, & Beautiful home!

    "My family and I stayed at this place for 4 days and loved it. There were amazing views of the beach (especially at sunset), the kids loved the pool and being able to walk across the beach road to the beach. The beach was nearly empty all the time. We virtually had the whole beach to ourselves! The home was clean and beautiful. The caretaker, Olivier, was extremely helpful. He was available to assist us with any needs/concerns throughout our stay. The only critique we have is that the beds in the master suite (in front of the pool), and the one in the main home were very hard and uncomfortable. Otherwise, everything else was wonderful! Highly recommend it!"
