"This is a gorgeous property. But more important, owner Jackie and her staff know how to make their guests feel relaxed and comfortable. The two houses are immaculate as are the grounds and pool. Two ladies clean daily and one hardly notices when they are there. We had them cook just one fantastic dinner and breakfast but they can do more. We have visited Costa Rica multiple times but this was our first as an entire family- eight of us, including two granddaughters 6 and 9. Villa Oasis was perfect! I'd give more than five stars if it were possible. We lounged around the pool, took morning walks to the beach but for beach days, we drove the five minute drive to Carrillo Beach. The beach is one of the best in Costa Rica. One son in law surfed three days at a great surf beach about twenty minutes drive south. There are many excellent restaurants in the area, including a little family pizza and pasta place just down the road. Easy for the first night's dinner. We aren't fishermen, so didn't go with Rick on the "Kingfisher" but we'd probably book a trip next time just to see the area from the ocean and perhaps get some fresh fish. The pictures are accurate- the villa is perhaps even nicer than the pictures show. We feel this is a first class vacation destination- absolutely fantastic! Thank you Jackie, Jessie and Jenzy for a wonderful week."

"We couldn't have found a more relaxing place to get away! Kelly and David's home in Playa Grande far exceeding our expectations! I feel SO rejuvenated after spending a week in their paradise. I love that there is such an awesome alternative to crowded beaches and hotels. From the beach, you wouldn't even know that anyone lives here, yet you are actually just steps away from the surf. I love the soothing natural sounds that lure you to sleep at night - what an incredible change from city sounds. I enjoyed taking the walk to the other end of the beach for yoga classes. For anyone wanted to get re-attuned to nature, this is an awesome place. You'll feel revitalized on all levels - body, mind and spirit. AND don't forget to go for a night walk. If you REALLY want to see what the stars look like - take you beach towel down to the beach AFTER dark - and soak in god's wonder.
We'll be back for sure!!! Thanks Kelly and David for sharing this very special place with us. You're the best!

"Where do I begin? Villa Selmina is beautiful and even nicer than the picture on the web site. Our family stayed here for our first trip to Costa Rica, and definitely made our stay comfortable and enjoyable.
The property is exactly as described on the web site, even nicer in person. It is clean and well maintained. There is ample privacy, and yet it is comfortably situated on the grounds of Reservo Conchal. The kitchen is modern, the appliances all in perfect condition. The individual bedrooms are all large, each with their own bathroom and all very private, perfect for kids or a couple.
Housekeeping was great, coming every day of our stay.
The pool is beautiful, the water incredibly clean. It was perfect for relaxing after dinner
The home is situated on probably the prettiest hole of Reservo Conchal's golf course, and even though it is on the golf course, privacy is well maintained by the foliage.
The location of Reservo Conchal is great for vacationing in Costa Rica. The property has an excellent beach club with a large lap pool, golf course, and all the extra amenities someone looks for on vacation. It’s an easy drive to Playa Grande and Play Negra for surfing. It is also close to multiple supermarkets that carry an excellent array of products.
Special Places and Collen who manages the property were great and very responsive to any of our requests.
I can’t recommend this property highly enough! We would definitely return, with our family or with other couples. It is the home you always dreamed of having! Enjoy!"

"I was concerned that the picture in the review would be more spectacular than the real thing, I was pleasantly surprised that in fact the view was even better than the photo. We booked this trip for Spring Break to meet our college age kids as it was geographically ideal to meet in Costa Rica from both the West Coast and the East Coast and the house was perfect for the 4 of us. Hans was a pleasure to deal with and the house staff were very nice and helpful. In particular we felt right at home with the house dog, Lacy. We wanted to relax in the pool and look at the view, which is almost all one needs to do as it really is that interesting. My son and I hung out in the pool and bird watched for hours and was amazed at all the species and activity. The house had everything one needs to feel at home. I highly recommend the property as an ideal location in Tamarindo."
