"My husband and I stayed at the Casa Rojo 6 out if 10 days of our honeymoon. It is the perfect size for a couple. It's located in the jungle, very private and safe. Andreas was very friendly and extremely helpful! He speaks fluent English, which was good for us, who speak no Spanish.. Solomon, the care taker, was very nice. We love that its rural and not very touristy. It's is located within a few miles from 4-5 different beaches, which are absolutely beautiful! Right outside the gate we saw a troop of howler monkeys which included a mother and baby. Charlie's in Matapalo has a good menu and drinks. In Brasalito, there's a great restaurant (can't remember the name) to the left before you enter the beach. Kevin who works there also owns a tour company. We loved the ATV tour. You are about a 10-15 min drive from a little surfing community called Playa Granda/Pirate Beach. It was one of our favorite places. You have to go to Kiki's Place, they have a great food an awesome venue."

"I have just returned from a 2 week holiday at the Villa Catalina. It was the perfect spot for a great family vacation. The house is amazing . It 's lay out allows space for privacy but also relaxing and comfortable communal areas. The house is very well appointed with everything you need. I have been to Costa Rica may times and this for me offered the best combination - beautiful beach with crystal blue water, lots of animal and bird life to watch, security, proximity to grocery stores and interesting restaurants and lots of adventures within easy driving. The property managers- Special Places- were excellent and responded immediately to questions . They also arranged for sunset cruises and adventure tours. I have rented a lot of houses in various places and this was by far the best experience"

"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!"

"Our stay was peaceful, relaxing, comfortable and there is everything you need in this condo. Comfortable beds and bathrooms were very spacious. If you are looking for a place away from the crazy tourist towns and tons of people this is where you should go! The restaurant was good and staff extremely friendly. The pool was extremely clean, deep enough for jumping in and having a great time. The deck in the condo is very large comfortable enough for at least six people. The view of the forest, hills and ocean are great! There are three beaches very close to the condo, one walking distance and the others 2 to 3 miles away. Our favorite was Playa Minus great beach and surf."
