"Nous avons passé une superbe semaine à la Villa Claudia. La plage, à 2 minutes de marche de l'appartement, était vraiment belle et tranquille. Nous étions complètement seuls. Parfait pour se reposer en famille. Merci à Mme. Labrie qui a su répondre à toutes nos questions et nous faire de bonnes recommandations durant notre séjour. La piscine, le coin BBQ et le splendide jardin ont contribué à rendre nos vacances inoubliables! Après avoir visité les parcs et lieux touristiques, la paix nous attendait à la Villa Claudette."

"We had simply the perfect vacation to Casa Pura Vida for Spring Break 2015. Our family of four (10 yo, 13 yo) spent 10 days at the house and could not bear to leave.
It would be impossible to convey how amazing (and EASY) this vacation was. Neil's packet of trip information was invaluable, and everything in there was accurate. We arrived after dark, and still managed to find the house pretty easily.
The house is stunning. STUNNING! It is more beautiful than the photos can convey, with a huge upstairs balcony and an enormous porch with outdoor dinner seating (both with ocean views). There were more than adequate comfortable patio chairs for lounging after dinner. And that pool! We spent multiple hours a day at the pool, resting in the hammocks and playing with the kids.
Here are some of the bonuses (that I must have missed in the description when I booked): outdoor charcoal grill, rinse-off station behind the house in addition to A FULL BATHHOUSE adjacent to the pool, a small hiking path on the property, a covered parking area, complete privacy, pool lighting that allowed you to use the pool area well past nightfall, a more than fully supplied kitchen (there were appliances that we don't have at our 'real' house), not one but TWO WiFi connections--the pool has it's own, a TV with ESPN --in Espanol -- which allowed our kids to see the Final Four and some NBA games. I could go on and on!
I don't think I realized initially how convenient the location would be. It is a 3-3.5 hour drive from San Jose, but it is a gorgeous drive and there are infinite roadside restaurants along the way. Once at the house, you are only 5 minutes from the surf town of Domenical and 5 minutes from Uvita with great grocery stores that were open long past dark. Uvita was the start of the national beaches which we LOVED. There were probably 30 restaurants within 15 minutes of the house and we did not have a bad meal in the lot. The whole fish entree was a favorite of everyone in our party.
We did the Nayauca Waterfall horseback ride which was worth every cent. It was $70 USD per person, but included two full meals and was worth every penny. Kids loved the cliff jumping/diving and we got some unbelievable photos.
Our kids took private surfing lessons on the 2nd day, and loved it so much that we went back twice more for additional lessons later in the week.
I'm out of words, but it was truly a magical vacation. Perfection!"

"My friend and I had a great stay in the Plaza Royal apartment. The place was clean and perfect for your stay of a couple of days or long term. The apartment is located above a cafe (we went each morning!), surf shop, massage/spa, and is located about a minute walk from the beach! There are multiple bars and restaurants, and a market nearby for all your food and sundry needs. We woke up to howler monkey's one morning! Being that Santa Teresa is a smaller town the main mode of transport is ATV or motorcycle, so being right on the main road it did get a little loud in the mornings with people heading to work/surf, but that was easy for us to look past with the level of service the owner provided and the amenities in close proximity. I would definitely stay here again on any return trip to the area. Nice, modern, convenient... and the owner/her son were excellent hosts!"

"We had the great pleasure to stay at Apartments Iguanas. Booking was super easy. Marga, Russ, and James were great hosts making sure we were comfortable during our stay. We would recommend this place to our closest friends and family. Very safe and secure and very beautiful grounds.
