  • GREAT place for a MEMORABLE vacation

    "This is my first review in this site. I have to state a few facts before hand. I am a world traveler due to my job and spend over 150 days a year on hotels in every continent. Likewise, our family usually takes trips twice a year to different countries around the world, always staying in houses or resorts. However, this was our first time renting a house in Costa Rica, where home is for us. I have to say that my expectations were quite low, as I had not vacationed in this area, plus I had left this trip to the very last minute, with Semana Santa (Easter week) on top, making it difficult to find any place available. However, we struck gold! We contacted David (owner) and Jodi (manager), and were able to make a memorable vacation, with the help of Gary (the local house keeper), who is a GREAT person to have a chat with and pointing on what to do locally. Location - The house is located on a mid-hilltop, with views to the ocean (less than a mile away), with lush vegetation around it (great for the monkeys that come and visit). The directions are very easy to get there, and it is centrally located to everything. Rooms - The rooms are great!!! Each with individual fans and A/C and the house with a master A/C, with multiple fans. They are large rooms, with very comfortable beds, great linens, each room with its private big bathroom and big closets! What else to ask for? Amenities - The house includes a series of perks like a FAST internet connection, Magic Jack, Roku, DVD player, 2 TV (one in the main bedroom and one in the living room) with Satellite TV, outside speakers, and large couches to watch TV... Outside - Obviously, the pool is a great attraction and it was a great one, with spectacular sunset views and just great for lounging. But the outside table, umbrella and chairs, made it the perfect location for food, drinks and unwinding.. or falling asleep in the sun tanning chairs (under a great shadow from a beautiful native tree)! Cooking - I love cooking and this is by far one of the best houses we have been to in terms of all utensils. We had great pots and pans (every size, for every style), great granite countertops, glass cooktop, great knives/cookware, and overall a great selection of plates to serve your food in, that really made it kind of special in terms of a "vacation" feel. A great dining table, topped it for family gathering. Overall - This house far exceeded our expectations, and we will definitely come back."

  • Beautiful villa...beautiful people of Costa Rica

    "6 "golden girls" spent 2 weeks in this beautiful villa. The residence is safe and secure. It is even more special than the listing description indicates. Andre, Audi and their beautiful family live on the grounds. They were wonderful to us and we fell in love with them and their kind ways. The parrots who live on the grounds gave us endless laughs mimicking us & our laughter. Louise, the property manager & Kelsey, the concierge, gave us great advise and interesting trips were arranged that all of us enjoyed (not an easy feat with 6 women). The property is clean & well maintained. The pool was perfect as the weather was quite warm. Andre cleaned the pool daily. Howler monkeys visited the compound several times, to our delight, to eat from the mango trees. What a treat. If you plan to go to the cloud forest and Arenal, it is a 3+ hour drive each way so you may want to plan to spend a night away from the Villa. We did not want to stay anywhere else so we did not make the trip...sorry now we didn't do it. Roberto's Restaurant is right next door...the food is delicious, reasonably priced and they have 2 for 1 specials on Wednesday & Saturday. Kelsey arranged several trips for us and each one offered a different look at the beauty of Costa Rica. Would recommend Rio Perdido, Los Pumas, and a boat ride down the River Tempeste, The owners, Bonnie & John; the property manager, Louise; the concierge, Kelsey; & the grounds & housekeeper, Andre, "Audi" and their wonderful family, made this a most memorable vacation. Thanks to you all!! We would most definitely recommend Villa Daiquiri to both young, old and in between. There is something for everyone in beautiful Costa Rica."

  • WOW! WOW!!! did i mention...WOW???

    "This was one of the BEST vacations my husband and i have EVER taken! Condo was the definition of perfection. We traveled with another couple and we all had plenty of room to hang out together and also have enough "personal space". My passion is cooking and to my very pleasant surpise the kitchen was well appointed with just about every imaginable pot/pan/bowl/utensil/cooking tool! The view can not be beat. The location can not be beat...walk to restaurants that will cook up your daily catch!! Need a massage? Walk 50yds down the beach for a blissful outdoor, waves crashing, sounds of paradise experience! Scott, property owner, was SO helpful with tons of information prior to trip...I'm pretty sure he was as excited about our trip to Playa Hermosa as we were!! This was one for the record books."
