"My boyfriend and I decided to take our January vacation in Costa Rica. Not only was this our first time traveling to CR, but also our first time using VRBO. We were very nervous but we had no issues using VRBO and we got our full deposit back the day we left the property-so if you have any concerns, don't!
When choosing our property, we wanted a mix of good tourist area where we would feel comfortable with things to do but without the super touristy resort like feel. With this property and area, I feel like we accomplished that! The night we arrived, Franklin showed us to the property. Both him and Ricardo are very nice and accessible. Whenever we contacted Ricardo, either before or during our trip, he was very quick to respond via phone call or email! He was also very helpful with recommending things to do etc.
The house itself is also great- it is located in a gated area, which made me feel safe and secure. A car is definitely needed for this property, preferably a 4 wheel drive or SUV (something with some clearance) as the roads in CR are not all fully paved. We managed fine with a sedan but would have felt better in an SUV, especially in the rain. (Also, most activities and such are definitely driving distance) The house was great with a master bedroom/bath and deck upstairs; another bedroom/bath downstairs; kitchen with utensils/bowls/etc; another deck off the living room which is gives you amazing sunset views!
The nearby town Nuevo Arenal (5 minute drive) has a grocery store, a bank and numerous restaurants with CR food, Italian, American and German food (so a great variety). The Windcatcher and German bakery were great breakfast spots. Los Platillos, Moyas and Tinajas (Tinajas is 5 min out of town on the lake) are great for lunch and dinner!
As far as activities, we drove to La Fortuna (35 minute drive) to see the waterfalls, go zip lining, hot springs, hanging bridges and hiking.
DEFINITELY RECOMMEND this property with Ricardo!"

"Great little townhouse in beautiful garden with nice pool. The condo had excellent air conditioning (necessary in April!), a lovely patio and simple but nice decor. A few things need repair, such as random holes in the wall and noisy toilets. But that said, it's overall a wonderful clean option at an affordable price and in a great location: very close to the south entrance of the beach and the yoga Institute with its wonderful juice bar and great yoga classes. The kitchen was perfect. We loved that it felt safe too. Also Francinny is especially helpful and nice - so responsive and a wonderful resource. She recommended restaurants for us that were incredible, eg., La Luna. We loved our time in Nosara!"

"Wow! My family and I just spent a week in this wonderful house. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the property's concierge. She is simply wonderful and helped make our vacation incredibly memorable. She arranged amazing dinners, booked great daily events (including a full-day boating trip that is not to be missed), ensured that our refrigerator stayed stocked, and did all the little things that made this such a memorable vacation. The housekeepers not only kept the house spotless, but also made us amazing breakfasts. You also get use of the beach club, where the staff made us feel like we were the most important guests they have ever had.
When you first walk into the house and see out into the backyard with its azure infinity pool and the breathtaking views, all the stresses of the "real-world" will melt away. Even the most stressed individuals (I am one) will be able to relax.
I have stayed in the finest resorts throughout the world, and none compare to this house. Bottom-line, I highly recommend renting this magnificent home."

"We needed a place to please multiple ages (14-75) and interests, and this was it! This GORGEOUS condo is in a quiet spot right across from the beach and just a quick walk to tons of great restaurants, a market, and shopping. You can walk the road or the beautiful beach.To access the beach, you walk through the Langosta Beach Cub, a luxurious spot with cabanas surrounding an infinity pool, a bar, a lovely restaurant, a gym, and a spa, all of which you have access to while staying in the condo. As the saying goes, "Pretty is as pretty does", and the staff went WAY beyond expectations to make our stay awesome. Bob drove me to the big grocery store (have two teenage boys to feed), and Sebastian arranged a 4 a.m. pick up for us to the airport and recommended a restaurant (Patagonia) that had the best steak I've eaten in my 48 years. Juanro arranged a private surfing excursion to Playa Grande for my boys they will remember forever. Everyone went out of their way to accommodate us, and it truly felt like a home away from home...only better!"
