    "Casa Gavilan ranks TOPS on m VBRO rental experiences. This property is gorgeous. The pictures do not do it justice. Ed was so helpful. We were delayed arriving which caught us having to drive the windy roads at dark, nerve racking. Ed met us along the road and guided us in. He also had us the essentials for breakfast and feeding the birds, our favorite activity. As I said the house is amazing, superior decor, extremely clean, wonderful landscaping and views. The wildlife kept us entertained. I think our biggest food expense was fresh fruit, for us and the birds. The Arenal location is a little off the beaten path, perfect for R&R. We stayed for three weeks, took on 2-3 adventures a week. Otherwise we stayed at "home" relaxing at the pool, walking the neighborhood trail, or maybe a trip to town for bite to eat and an Imperial beer. Locals are so friendly. Definitely eat at Moya`s and hang at Karacters. Pick up some homemade yogurt or cheese at El Estatblo. Our faves were back 142 towards Tillaran, La Rana is less than 2 km for breakfast and dinner, love Mr. Riner. The food is very good and he feeds the birds by hand. Further down the road is Casa Delagua for breakfast and lunch. We booked most of our activities through Los Camps in La Fortuna. They are associated with Los Lagos Hotel and Spa next door, with every booked activity you get a free pass to the Hotel pools, springs, restaurants and bars. That felt great after the Sky Trek zipping. I could go on forever. We'll be back."

  • Views and Privacy

    "We enjoyed this home so much that for two entire days, we planned to stay in, enjoying the panorama from dawn to dusk. There is no better sunset view anywhere in the world! We spent a lot of time in the pool, which has the same view to the bay and the horizon, and sports a waterfall feature that fronts the Master bedroom for a pleasing and soothing sound. The house is well-appointed, with a nice kitchen, large living/dining area, big patio, and guest/children's quarters well removed from the Master Suite. The only caveat: the driveway access is the trade-off for the expansive views, as it is extremely steep. We recommend renting a powerful AUTOMATIC vehicle, as a manual clutch would prove challenging to the less experienced... The home is five minutes from the center of town, with modern, American-style grocery options, plenty of restaurants and small shops. Access to the beach is easy, and there is ample opportunity to explore the area within close reach. We recommend flying into Liberia airport, which is only 30 minutes away. All in all, such a magical time that we and our children were reluctant to leave!"

  • Wonderful Vacation

    "We have just returned from the beautiful Costa Rica and had a wonderful stay at Casa De Loma. Everything was perfect from the minute we arrived. The pictures on VRBO do not do the house and view justice. We were greeted by Ana and made to feel right at home. The house was lovely and the sunsets were incredible. The swimming pool was so nice to come home to after a full day on the beach or seeing the sights. The pool was very clean and just the right temperature. Ana had the most delicious dinners ready for us, our favorite was the BBQ chicken. We saw lots of wildlife and recommend the local zip line company in Samara. Just when we were getting to know the area we had to leave. We hope to go back in the near future. We will miss Ana as she was a lovely person! I would recommend this VRBO rental 100 %! Thank you for being such wonderful hosts."

  • Great location

    "The house is perfectly located. Short walk to the beach and close to the grocery store. The pool area is great and we liked the layout of the house. We were there during the Easter week but it was never that busy. All in all a great place to stay."
