Recent Puntarenas reviews

  • Loved the atmosphere!

    "We shared a week at Casa Arenosa with another couple. Lots of space for everyone to find a place to relax, and wonderful spaces to come together and socialize. As mentioned in most of the reviews, the plunge pool is a welcome treat, and miraculously stays cool even with daily temperatures in the mid 30's. We enjoyed the trails through the Bosque del Cabo area, and had an incredible dinner there on one of our nights. Maureen, the chef, created some amazing dishes, including a delicious rare tuna that we all enjoyed. A highlight for us at Arenosa were the Scarlet Macaws, and we were thrilled as we packed the car to leave when 2 pairs did a fly-over salute together to say good-bye! My only negative comment would be that the description on the website could use some up-dating. A useable grill does not exist, so we had to re-plan meals for the meat that we had brought to grill. There is solar power that runs lights and a refrigerator, so although you are living off-the-grid there really are no inconveniences. We used an unplugged second refrigerator to store dry goods in; but found it to be a poor option with some mold being present. A well sealed cupboard or large lidded plastic bin would have worked much better. The cookware was great, knives not bad, plenty of cutting boards, but limited drinking glasses . . . and those that were there were worn and tired. Nothing for wine, but when we mentioned this the caretaker kindly brought some wine glasses the next day. Mike, the caretaker was busy most of the week, and we never did have an opportunity to meet Cecily who was also busy doing massages. Wi-Fi was reliable and fairly strong . . . a convenience for some, but I really was looking forward to finding this location to be too remote allowing me to test whether I could still spend a week disconnected from the world! All things considered . . . a wonderful spot to enjoy nature and the beach."

  • Mac Daddy!

    "WOW! The very first time I walked into this home, I got all choked up. The view is just remarkable. It has huge open spaces and some very cool furniture. The beds were really comfortable and the place just has a great feel. You are like up in the trees and looking over the coastline with the waves crashing. We had a great time out in the park and had a bar-b-que on our last night. The little private falls at the end of the road was like our own private swimming pool in the middle of the jungle. I love this place!!"

  • Unbelievable Paradise

    "My husband and I, along with our children and grandchildren, stayed at Milla la Maria for a week in Feb., 2015. What a wonderful experience. The owner was there to meet us and give us a tour and information on services and restaurants. Prior to our visit he was very helpful in securing quad rentals and transportation services. He also called several times during our stay to check on us. There are literally no words to describe the beauty of this home and grounds. The home itself is an architectural treasure as are the aesthetics of the home. Yet it was very comfortable and homey with Internet that always worked! The pool area and surrounding grounds all the way to the Ocean were spectacular. The beautiful plantings, sculptures and pool arrangement were so lovely. The walk to the ocean was a delight with again beautiful foliage accompanying you. The walk was very short and voila you arrived at Playa Santa Teresa with miles of beaches that are sparsely populated. The water and surfing were great but most lovely were the sunsets. Words can not do justice! The property is very well kept and Melani, the housekeeper, a dream. She even washed our clothes and any dishes everyday! My favorite time was when it was quiet in the morning and you could hear the birds and see the animals including monkeys. We all loved the estate cats and Perone the best and cutest little dog! On these cold mornings back home, I often have visions of our stay and they warm my heart. Perfect for all ages from the most active to those like me who love to lounge and read. I almost forgot to mention that this property is totally secluded with no sight lines to other properties. Yet it is close enough to restaurants, etc. to be very convenient. Much to do or nothing to do is such a great option. Our kids and grandkids loved quadding and exploring along with the pool and beach. There is zip lining, horseback riding, yoga, etc. available or again nothing but relaxing. Some very good restaurants in Santa Teresa but again never crowded. The town has good stores for groceries and a variety of small shops. My husband and I travel frequently.and many times have rented homes. This is truly the BEST yet. Milla de Maria is an oasis of beauty. Anyone would be very fortunate to experience it!!"

  • Family from New York

    "Just INCREDIBLE! We felt as though we were one with nature. Our 2 young boys had the time of their life. We, as family, bonded and left with such life experiences! We can't wait to go back."
