  • The most peaceful place

    "I stayed at this lodge for a very short period, but I did not want to leave. It is the most peaceful place to stay at. Granted that I was there during the low season, but I also know that Mal Pais doesn't get flooded with tourists as other towns in the area, so it's pretty quiet with rock-free beaches. The lodge itself is very clean and the open concept is just a unique and beautiful feature of it, making it aesthetically very pleasing and enjoyable. It has all the necessary furniture, appliances (even a blender)...the owners are very friendly and warm people!"

  • Fabulous living with amazing views

    "Our first reaction when we walked in was ..... WOW, What an awesome place. The condo was spacious, relaxed and very well appointed. The bathrooms were spacious with instant hot water and good pressure. Washer/Dryer in the condo made us feel right at home. We loved to spend our mornings on the grand balcony watching and listening to the abundant wildlife. Our highlight one morning was watching two Red Iguanas in what we think was a mating ritual high in the tree canopy. To see nature in it's raw form truly was amazing. The pool down in common area was refreshing. The staff, Eilyn and Martha were extremely friendly and accommodating. Gracias! The daily maid service was excellent. Public transportation was literally right in front of condo. Our favorite restaurant was a "100ft journey". You can't go wrong with this condo. It's centrally located to Quepos and Manuel Antonio Park not to mention the beaches. We look forward to our return and exploring the countryside. Jeff&Gary"

  • 6 days of family adventure in paradise

    "and our top 6 reasons for why we will be going back to la Cuesta Roja: 1. Family-friendly - my partner and I and our two boys (7 & 9) had an adventure that will never be forgotten! We had no worries about their safety, lots of room to roam and expend energy, days were spent playing in the waves, running up and down the stairs - not as onerous as has been described, very manageable, generally discovering. Great house layout with separate room and bathroom for the kids, though we lived on the covered porch when not down at the beach or exploring the jungle. 2. Wildlife - the howler monkeys hung out one day in the trees beside the house, the 4 scarlet red macaws who returned to "their" tree daily, the lizards, the crabs, the wild horses on the beach across from the house, and all the dogs! Who needs a zoo - just go to la Cuesta Roja! 3. Vista & natural setting - overwhelmingly beautiful, just get in the hammock each morning and pinch yourself - it is real and it is amazing! Beaches to wander, jungle to explore, we paddled on the river and explored the mangroves. The stunning flowers around the property, discovering how pineapples grow, mango trees, banana trees and being able to eat as much coconut as we could! 4. La Cuesta Roja is remote yet so very comfortable - beds, cooking, small fridge, showers & flushing toilets (!), fab solar-powered system - never failed, laundry (!), even an iPod dock for our tunes in the evening!!! Jim has thought of everything. There are even 5-6 pairs of boots and 6 life-jackets as well as 2 boogie boards. 5. Jim was more like a friend than an owner, we really enjoyed our time with him - including a day of fantastic fishing - who catches a sailfish and a rooster fish - we did (well, Jim's expertise did!)!! He was so easy to work with, patiently answered all our Qs before we arrived, was available to us when were on-site and then shared pictures with us after our trip. Jim, you've got friends in Toronto!!! 6. This was a life experience, it is the most talked-about part of our 2wk trip in Costa Rica (surfing lessons in Dominical ranked #2!) and I've shared Jim's web-site link with loads of friends and encouraged them to take their own adventure. We'll be back :-)"

  • Much more than just a "Casita": wonderful hosts, outstanding home

    "My wife an I enjoyed Semana Santa 2015 in La Casita. The place description is very accurate but you may need to be a novelist to transmit with words what the place and the hosts Joyce and Chan really make you feel. The property and The Casita are a piece of art, so much welcoming. Joyce and Chan had taken care of every detail but specially the gardens full of Heliconias and all kinds of greens and colorful plants. Their gardener Gilberth is very smart and polite, easily recognizes every plant variety and kindly offers you to take home any "child" plant you like. Maria the maid cooks "gallo pinto" and fresh fruits for you every day. The drive up is only 300 ft, easy for any small or mid-size SUV or pick-up truck when it is dry, although you may need 4x4 if wet. It was a great "home-base" for us to enjoy the near-by Playa Uvita (Whale tale), Playa Ballena Beach Club Villa Leonor and Ojochal fine restaurants, we even took a quick 1-hr drive to Sierpe and enjoy an afternoon river boat tour. Come over and discover more on your own."
