"We spent 4 weeks in the sun enjoying the local Nosara food, people, and two stunning beaches and sightseeing up and down the coast and central Costa Rica. Casa Ventana is ideally located between the touristy area and the local downtown providing a mix of all we wanted to do. We loved listening to the Howler monkies while drinking coffee on the porch early in the mornings and again while drinking martinis on the porch late afternoon. We would recommend renting a car at the airport but be prepared for the inescapable, high rental insurance costs."

"Great location, very comfortable and safe . We each had our own area to ourselves and enjoyed all the house and area had to offer. If ever back that way, we will be sure to stay there again. Thanks to all. Communication was very good."

"My family of 4 (2 college daughters) spent a wonderful 5 days at Paraisito in April of 2015. Although listed as a home, it could legitimately be better described as a 5 star villa, with every amenity you need for a wonderful vacation. The craftsmanship alone was flawless, beautiful exposed, cathedral dark wood ceilings in each room, intricate tile work throughout, 2 beautiful bathrooms with walk in showers, and a layout which gave plenty of room for fellowship but also privacy when needed. The location was ideal. We spent the first few days driving and exploring various beaches and towns in the area but the last few days we stayed right at Playa Pelada, a 8 min walk, (or 2 min drive) from the house. (There are two parking areas to this beach, one closer to the house and one, more public, closer to 2 awesome beachfront restaurants. By the way, we rented a beach umbrella at the Frog Pad for the week which was absolutely essential (in addition to to sunscreen). We went zip lining and horseback riding, and ate out a few times (our favorite was La Luna) but we also bought food to cook breakfast and lunch (mostly smoothies) back at the house with its fully appointed kitchen. With all the activities, however, we all agreed our highlight was getting to the beautiful beach, enjoying the sun, ocean, swimming in the waves and exploring the tidepools at low tide, and returning back to Paraisito each evening. A truly relaxing and refreshing vacation. P.S. A special thank you to the owners and caretakers who answered many questions very quickly and gave great advice for activities and transport logistics to make our stay one of the best vacations we have had as a family.)"

Great spot close to the beach and a pool to cool you off!
"My husband, and two daughters and a friend stayed here for two weeks. It was wonderful. It was the rainy season, but only rained like once a day, for a short bit typically. The house is close to a ton of restaurants and little boutiques. Loved the spot on the beach. It is good to keep track of the tides though, so you know good times for swimming or checking out the tidal pools there. The house was lovely, and we didn't have to use the a/c but a few times. There were iguanas, parrots, coatimundis, and howler monkeys all around the house. So, even hanging by the pool, we easily felt like we were in the jungle. The pool was a welcoming refresher when we got hot and stayed nice and cool as it is shaded. We loved it and will hopefully be back.
The owner, Dave, was great and Tiffany, the manager was very helpful. We were a bit nervous going somewhere like this for the first time, but they were both very helpful with both our arrival and departure.
Thanks for the wonderful stay, Dave,
