Beautiful Home, Great Location, Amazing Views. We're ready to come back!
"It's my final morning here. We are about to pack up and leave, and I already miss the house. The house is beautifully located on a hillside above the beach. It's about 1/4 mile walk to the beach, but you can still hear every wave crashing and see the water from every front window. Ana Marie deserves a raise, as she was here every single day cleaning, doing our laundry, and making the place look and smell cleaner then before. Ernesto washed our rental car for us and was diligently working in the yard all day everyday. Raking, watering plants, sweeping, and keeping the property and pool in tip top shape! The huge front porch, and gazebo were great for eating out, bird watching, or just relaxing and listening to the ocean and monkeys down below. The Rouku was great when it wasn't trying to load. Mic had it set up for our local television. We were watching a tornado and storms hit an area close to home as we were sitting in CR enjoying our beautiful weather. The dogs were the best part about this house. There are 4 dogs living on the property, although we only got to meet Rusty once (he was tied up at Ernesto's house the entire time we were at the home except for one morning when he must have broke away), he was my favorite. We spoiled Kanga, Jack and Sky with dog treats we bought at the store, attention, a walk to the beach, and letting them sleep in the air conditioned bedrooms most of the time we were there. Every time we come to Costa Rica we like to stay in a different area, but those dogs make us want to come to Villa Bueno Vista next time we come back. I have a feeling they are going to miss how much we spoiled them. The house is in close proximity to very nice grocery stores, 2 banks, lots of restaurants (Sol Y Mar being the best and cheapest), and lots of beaches. There isn't really anything bad I can say about our 8 nights we stayed here."

Had a great stay at the Matapalo 502. Views from 5th floor are awesome and were able to see few rare birds and howler monkeys.."

"What a magical place Costa Rica is, and this Villa is simply exceptional. Having found this through an exhaustive search on VRBO, I truly fell in the love with the pictures, but wasn't sure it would live up to them. Trust me, it does and more! Kitchen is beautiful and fully loaded. We not only caught snapper and grouper, but I happily cooked them in this state of the art kitchen! Our adult children had a blast zip lining, catching sail fish, rafting, snorkeling and relaxing. Picante restaurant cooked some of our fish for us as well. Verda and Neil are great, and we were fortunate to meet them while we were there. Super helpful and they truly love the area. The people of Costa Rica were friendly and low key. We had a really exceptional time in the country, and our spectacular Villa with views that were incredible, made this a trip of a lifetime. We are already scheduled for next year!"

"Our family just returned from a 10 day stay at Casa Paquita. Our stay was more than
we expected and dreamed of. This home is absolutely beautiful, plenty of room for all of us and the setting on the beach was so perfect -we had all our family photos taken there. Noemie made us fabulous traditional meals and took care of all our other needs! We were spoiled! Paola set us up with the perfect excursions. Our days were full of excitement for our family ( from ages 10 to 68). The kids loved the monkeys, geckos and Iguanas. I loved the lush tropical plants and stunning sunsets. The restaurants, shops and beach adventures all within walking distance- we didnt even need a rental car! The infinity pool was definitely the icing on the cake! We didn't want to leave! We will be back!"
