  • Absolutely fabulous stay!!!!

    "This is our first time to Costa Rica. We wanted to get away from the cold and took our teenage/young adult kids to this awesome place for a Christmas vacation. We had the best time. Thank you to Vince and Angela for alot of options and the information on what to do and where to go within an hour drive of this area. It was never a dull or boring moment. We really enjoyed eating breakfast on the patio/balcony and watching the birds, howler monkeys, iguanas, & squirrels climb thru the trees. The sounds were relaxing and amazing which made it hard to get going out the door each morning. All the pools were beautiful and clean. The condo was perfect and had everything we needed. Fantastic neighbors also assisted us with our questions of the area. The 24 hour security was extra nice. We would definitely go back in a heartbeat. We also rented a car which was nice to see farther areas, but there is also public transportation at a cheap price if you have time. Thanks Vince and Angela for all your help and suggestions."

  • Christmas Awesomess!!

    "Our stay at Villa Vista de Oro was incredible. Our entire family of 11 spent the week of Christmas here and it was full of awesomeness. The villa is absolutely beautiful and meticulously maintained by an incredible staff. It has 180 degree views of the ocean complete with beautiful sunsets and great breezes. We had the pleasure of monkeys on a few mornings out the front door. The birds were all very entertaining as well. Four of the bedrooms had splendid ocean views and the “bunk” room upstairs had great jungle views. Every bathroom was jaw dropping gorgeous. I cannot rave enough about the staff and the all-inclusive aspect of this villa. Isabel was a savior with her fluent English. She arranged for smooth pickup and drop off of family coming in from the Ohio, Oregon and England! She arranged for all of our tours and shopping excursions with expert precision. Isabel was there every day to meal plan with us and answer any questions what so ever. What a beautiful person she is and a pleasure to talk to and visit with. And I can’t say enough about the all-inclusive way this villa is run. This method takes all of the hassle out of everything. There was always plenty of beer, wine, water, food, whatever we needed. Isabel even made a special “coffee run” to get us coffee to take home. Chef Jose cooked us 3 wonderful, delicious meals everyday with fantastic desserts as well. He even accommodated one of our family members that had dietary restrictions. Jose Mario kept the pool spotless, our drink glasses full and even protected us from a possum in a tree that was driving the dogs crazy one night, haha. Costa Ricans celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve so we wanted to give them the night off. Chef Jose and the staff prepared our entire dinner ahead of time so all we had to do was just grill it up and serve it. Complete with a delicious, festive dessert of course. No aspect went unforgotten. Isabel arranged for us to go fishing (caught a huge Mahi Mahi), paddle boarding, sail/snorkel cruising and shopping. She even accompanied us to the local rodeo that was in a nearby town. What a great experience that was! I shouldn’t forget about the local rescue Monkey Farm either. Very interesting and worth the visit. Everything was perfect and you just can’t put a price on being able to spend quality family time together with no hassles. I would certainly recommend this wonderful villa to anyone."

  • Repeat customer

    "Love this property! Very comfortable and well-appointed condo. Fabulous view and constant breeze. Lots of places to go for walks and bird watch. Walking distance to three beaches if you are in good shape to do a few hills. I particularly enjoyed walking through the villages and into the back hills - very peaceful and safe. Close proximity to many other beaches and particularly liked Bueno Beach, right beside Papagayo Beach Hotel. Favourite restaurants are Le Coq, Ocotal Hotel & Father Rooster. A car is necessary to reach other towns & National Parks, as well as doing grocery shopping."

  • Merry Christmas

    "My family had an amazing week at Casa Colina. The lovely villa is spacious and more than comfortable for a family, and we had more room than we needed! With two daughters aged 5 and 8, the beautiful pool and beach were the major hits of Bahia Pez Vela. We loved the safe, secure complex as well as the privacy of the secluded beach. Our mornings were spent eating breakfast and watching the birds fly over the patio. Our daughters were tickled that there were howler monkeys in the trees behind the villa on several occasions. We opted not to rent a car due to the easy availability of taxis and transportation. We took a day trip to the Tempisque river, where our children were delighted to see many kinds of animals up close. We also hired a driver to take us to a local waterfall and the animal rescue outside of Liberia. Cesar arranged all of that for us and we had great experiences. The restaurant on site, Picante, had the most delicious ceviche we've ever had. I had at least one serving a day! Our kids bonded immediately with Cesar and Jackie in the main office, and Juan and Cesar in the restaurant. The night before we left we had to go give everyone hugs. We miss them already, and can't wait to go back."
