"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."

Large, luxurious, great location and fantastic owners!
"The condo is spacious and comfortable with a full, well stocked kitchen and an outdoor grill. We had grandparents and teenagers with us and everyone enjoyed their own private space with TVs in every bedroom, en-suite bathrooms, and private patios. There were 6 of us and we could have easily slept and fed 4 more.
Location, location, location: Two quiet, private Bella Vista pools are less than a 60 second walk from the condo, and the main beach club is less than 5 minutes away on foot. The marina is a few minutes by golf cart or car, and a great place for reasonable dining, convenience groceries, liquor and beer. There are plenty of activities off-resort too including a full range of casual to fine dining in Playa Herradura and Jaco; plus beautiful hiking in Carara/Bijagual waterfall; adventures like ATV tours, canopy tours, horse-back riding, and sailing/boating - all minutes away by car. The condo is also well situated geographically roughly equidistant between the San Jose airport and Manuel Antonio park with plenty of day-trip type of activities available by car.
Lastly and most importantly, the owners of this property couldn't be better. We were pleasantly surprised to find snacks, beer, juice and milk available upon our arrival, especially after spending way more time at the car rental office than planned. The owners also helped us plan our trip prior to arriving, stopped by to greet us personally after calling to make sure it was a convenient time, and even found us on the beach mid-way through our trip to follow-up on some activity information we had requested.
Bottom line: I would recommend this condo to anyone, and we will definitely be visiting again!"

"Fiesta del Rio is a little paradise. The house and the landscaping of the yard and pool are beautiful. The cottage is in a very private location and has all the comfort of your own home. It is tastefully decorated and has top quality lines, bath towels, etc. We loved the spacious patio and had all our breakfasts and dinners there. The view of the yard and jungle surrounding it is amazing. In the morning we saw toucans in nearby trees and howler monkeys in the trees at the entrance of the property. The yard surrounding the cottage is absolutely beautiful. We loved every single minute of our stay in Fiesta del Rio. My kids (they are 7 and 9) enjoyed to cool down in the pool and my husband and I loved to relax in the pool overcooling the creek and jungle under it.
Ken and Sharon are wonderful hosts. They were very respectful of our privacy but at the same time they really care about their guests and make sure you have all you need. One morning talking with Sharon we told her how much we love tropical fruit and on the same day she had her gardeners bring us fresh fruits from the trees in her property. Ken and Sharon are very knowledgeable about the area and gave us great advice about places to visit and things to do.
Ojochal is a very pretty small village and has everything you can wish for (supermarket, restaurants, info center to book your tour, etc.). It is very close to great beaches and waterfalls.
Fiesta del Rio is surely one special place we plan to go back to."
