"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!"

"We had an amazing experience from beginning to end at Casa Ostional. The views from the house were spectacular. We were looking for a real jungle experience – and that’s exactly what we got at Casa Ostional.
We opted for the meals and the driver/guide. Both of these options were amazing and an absolute must. Carlos, Erica, and Daniel prepared amazing food – and kept the house (inside and out) beautiful. They are all so friendly and giving. Carlos, Erica, and Daniel really made the already amazing experience, even better.
Now for Elias - driver/guide. He is way more than a driver/tour guide. He was the heart of the trip for us. He is so knowledgeable about the area and the people, and he bent over backwards to make sure we had the best time possible. He set up the best local tours, and brought us to the best local beaches (that weren’t crowded), and made sure we saw as many howler monkeys as possible (which was very important for my 6 and 9 year old). We can not say enough about Casa Ostional, Elias, Erica, Carlos, and Daniel. This was an absolute trip of a lifetime for us – and we were not disappointed.
If you’re looking for an amazingly real, Costa Rican experience – this is the place for you. We had a blast! Thank you to everyone at Casa Ostional."

"House is really nice and comfortable. We had a great time there and it has everything needed to spend a good time among friends. Great host, house is close to Langosta beach, close to Tamarindo beach and location makes it easy to travel around other places in Guanacaste. Fully recommended for a sweet vacation."

"Thanks to Kai and Ruth ( sorry never met you!) we were on a whirl and Casa Linda Vista was
Wonderful! You have an amazing piece of your own paradise Kai! You were hospitable inviting and warm! Wish we stayed the month but our 2 nights was all we could squeeze into our fantastic CR vaca!
Love the walking paths and your foliage! Loved the comfortable house and the views! The upstairs deck was my go to when we were home...coffee in the am and sips of wine or cold refreshing water and tea in the eve! Easily hands down a winner! Walked and biked to the beach, ate at Rip Jacks, Bula Bula for cocktails and just down the driveway at El Heurto! Also managed a low tide bike ride from our beach area to Tamarindo ( with help from the local motor boats!) hung out pretty much at Nocuis while our kids biked around/swam/shopped and then we biked back via Frijoles locos suggestion of water taxi to Bula Bula! Biked the road from there! So fun! Live love be happy! That's life in Playa Grande"
