  • Amazing Family Adventure!

    "We just spent 10 days in Costa Rica, one week at the lovely Paradise Found. This property is an impossible to beat gem! Although cliche, the pictures do not do it justice. The grounds, pool and gardens are impeccably maintained and beyond beautiful. The 3 (yes 3) houses are all charming, comfortable and all bedrooms air conditioned. A short walk through the jungle path brings you to either the Tango Mar beach bar and grill and/or the beach. It is BEAUTIFUL! the waves can be in them in the morning. The house is the perfect launching place to discover the Nicoya Peninsula, but you may not want to leave. The pool is amazing. We were greeted with lovely welcome baskets and a few staples in the kitchen. Bring your own toiletries, including bar soap for the showers and shampoo/ conditioner. The property manager, Sonja was a delight to work with. She checked in with us every morning and arranged our excursions with local people. We experienced the area without any hustle bustle, lines or crowds. In fact, in this area, we had amazing privacy and were really able to immerse ourselves in local culture. We definitely recommend getting the GPS with your 4WD rental...there are no street signs. Also...once you turn onto the road to the property, it is ROUGH...don't worry, you'll get used to it.Try ziplining at Suntrails, boogie boarding, Tortuga Island, a relaxing day at Whale Bay, a massage at the house. The food at Tango Mar is good, but pricey. We enjoyed the food at Tambor Tropical alot and was much better priced. If you are ready for a fun filled, action packed, very physical and energizing yet relaxing vacation...this is your place. Don't bother looking at any other Tambor will NOT beat this place. And...the owner and other staff was extremely easy to work with and very eager to please. We would highly recommend this property and truly hope to return one day!"

  • Paradise Found at Sierpe Del Pacifico

    "My family of five had the adventure of a life time at Sierpe del Pacifico (our three children range in ages from 8-17). The jungle home is stunning, clean and placed right in the middle of the jungle--toucans, parrots, capuchin and howler monkeys are neighbours. We loved the solitude and natural splendour of the property. Paradise is simply sitting on the porch, overlooking the jungle and the Sierpe River, watching scarlet macaws fly by. We took boat trips to Corcovado Park, Cano Island, Violin Island and went horseback riding with Rosita (which was so much fun)! Caesar was a top notch guide in Corcovado--very informative and he tracked a tapir for us. Felipe was a friendly, kind and knowledgeable driver on our way to and from San Jose. In fact, everyone we dealt with regarding our vacation was friendly, knowledgable and eager to help. The experience best suits those who enjoy nature and wilderness, don't mind hot and humid weather and can handle a 5-10 minute up hill climb to the house from the dock. Make sure to stock up on groceries well before Sierpe as we found the town grocery store lacking. Being submersed in the true jungle, I learned more on the Oso Peninsula about life than in my 8 years of university. I've been home for a while; yet, I still miss the howler monkeys and their morning calls. Thank you Cassidy, it was the most amazing vacation and I'd love to return."

  • Home away from home....

    "We had the best time in Costa Rica and renting this house was such a blessing! The location of the home is perfect (for entertainment, activities and most importantly, awesome surf) and everything about the home made our stay very comfortable. The owners are super gracious and the management company very accommodating. From the beginning we didn’t just feel like guests, we felt like extended family. Camille rocks and really helped make this trip, our honeymoon, a wonderful experience full of great memories to last a lifetime. The only con is that we didn’t want to leave and already miss being there. If we ever return to this area, we wouldn’t think of staying anywhere else. Pura Vida! ~ Christine"

  • Simply Amazing!

    "INCREDIBLE VILLA! I would be remiss to not first mention the greatest aspect of this villa, the VIEW! The pictures simply cannot do justice to the view you will see from each floor of this villa. The villa overlooks Manuel Antonio National park which includes the an amazing ocean view. It is breathtaking, awe inspiring and truly something you can hardly believe you’re looking at. We stayed at Villa Manuel Antonio for the first week of April and everyday since our return home my family wakes up wishing we were there. The villa is very spacious, clean, and perfect for large and small groups. We stayed with a group of 25 people including 7 children. The main house and two of the condos below fit us perfectly. The Villa is perfectly located with plenty of cafes and restaurants within walking distance. The beach, national park, and Quepos are a short taxi drive away. If you plan to walk to the beach it’s about a 15-20 minute hike, but with the great views and beautiful area, it’s worth the walk. A couple from our group spotted a sloth scaling a wall on their hike and was able to stand just a few feet from it. The villa also has a nice pool and comfortable air-conditioned rooms. The daily maid and laundry service are definitely a bonus if you packed light. Lorenzo, the owner, is a larger than life character. His hospitality, charm and service were better than we could have imagined. He always has a smile on his face and a funny story to tell. Not only did he arrange for our transportation to pick us up from the airport, but he also helped us plan our day trips, buy groceries, and answered all of our random questions. On top of all that, he helped us through the whole process of planning our wedding (held on the property), from the catering, to the music, to taking great pictures for us during our wedding! To add to our great vacation were the monkeys we saw at the villa every morning…they were truly unforgettable. You’ll be able to see them mainly in the mornings and evenings when is not so hot. They come close to you and you can watch them play around the patio. My only advice would be make sure you close the front door because monkeys love to swoop in and take unattended fruit (which is amazing too by the way!). I highly recommend Lorenzo’s villa to anyone that is looking for a comfortable, family friendly place, and wants to just relax and have a good time!"
