"The condo was immaculate and the property and pool were well maintained. Just a few minutes walk to the lovely town of Samara and the beach. Shout out to Santos for getting up at 3:30 am yesterday to let in our shuttle to the airport! We will definitely be back!"

"What a great place to spend your first visit to the country. It was wonderful to have a driver pick us up at the airport and transport us directly to the apartment for a reasonable fare. He even gave us some shopping time at a great supermarket to start off our vacation. Donna arranged this for us so koodos to Donna. As indicated in other reviews the studio was comfortable, clean, had good satellite, and the air conditioner worked great when we needed it. WiFi was also available pretty much whenever we used it. The location was perfect whether you rent a car or not. The small town of tamarindo was with walking distance which is great if you don't want to rent a car. Beach was beautiful and not crowded at all during this time of year. Would definitely stay again."

"Out family of 5 (three young kids all under age 7) recently spent 4 days at this great condo. It was perfect. The pictures really don't do the place justice. The condo was a lot bigger than we imaged and the balconies were a huge plus. We ate all our meals outside on the main deck and we used the deck off the master for afternoon reading and cocktail hour. The condo was fully stocked with all the little things needed but not thought of – towels, kitchen spices, plastic wrap, etc. This is an end unit which is great for privacy and not sharing walls. The condo is very nicely decorated and has very comfortable sofas, beds and outdoor furniture. It was also nice that one of the guest rooms had two queen beds. The condo could sleep 8 people. Our kids really loved the pool (massive) and we usually have the entire pool to ourselves (we stayed in August during the low season). But it was nice that the pool bar was open to get drinks. It was an easy 3 minute walk to the other hotel pools and beach. The location of the condo is great in that you don't need a rental car and can walk to all the restaurants, shops, bars. The Lyrics office were easy to work with and we would highly recommend this condo."

"My family of 4 (2 college daughters) spent a wonderful 5 days at Paraisito in April of 2015. Although listed as a home, it could legitimately be better described as a 5 star villa, with every amenity you need for a wonderful vacation. The craftsmanship alone was flawless, beautiful exposed, cathedral dark wood ceilings in each room, intricate tile work throughout, 2 beautiful bathrooms with walk in showers, and a layout which gave plenty of room for fellowship but also privacy when needed. The location was ideal. We spent the first few days driving and exploring various beaches and towns in the area but the last few days we stayed right at Playa Pelada, a 8 min walk, (or 2 min drive) from the house. (There are two parking areas to this beach, one closer to the house and one, more public, closer to 2 awesome beachfront restaurants. By the way, we rented a beach umbrella at the Frog Pad for the week which was absolutely essential (in addition to to sunscreen). We went zip lining and horseback riding, and ate out a few times (our favorite was La Luna) but we also bought food to cook breakfast and lunch (mostly smoothies) back at the house with its fully appointed kitchen. With all the activities, however, we all agreed our highlight was getting to the beautiful beach, enjoying the sun, ocean, swimming in the waves and exploring the tidepools at low tide, and returning back to Paraisito each evening. A truly relaxing and refreshing vacation. P.S. A special thank you to the owners and caretakers who answered many questions very quickly and gave great advice for activities and transport logistics to make our stay one of the best vacations we have had as a family.)"
