"Casa Tangora was too big for just 2 people, but my girlfriend and I made the most of it! The master suite on the top floor had a comfortable bed with a perfect view of the jungle and Pacific Ocean. We had a few problems with the gas in the kitchen, but were able to cook some fantastic meals on the gas stove and on the BBQ by the pool. Stephen, our contact for the house was an outstanding host to our needs for sightseeing and information on local cuisine. After we toured the zip lines, ATV tours and beaches, we loved coming back and drinking frozen drinks by the infinity pool and watching the sunsets. The wildlife (spiders, frogs, parrots, birds, lizards, sloths) were amazingly "not scary". 4WD is a definite MUST when getting up that last part of the driveway. Never would have made it without it. The shower in the master suite was different, but taking a shower by sunset was amazing! Hot and cold water available. Watch for frogs in the toilets...it can be quite a surprise when opening toilet lids. Internet was intermittent and no cable, so bring movies. We brought Seasons 1-2 of House of Cards. Great series! Don't leave your electronic devices plugged in the wall at night or put it on a power strip. Power recycles and it blew our Beats portable speaker. Thank you so much for an amazing stay at Casa Tangora. I recommend it for all parties!!"

"This was our first time visiting Costa Rica and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were in paradise. Casa Las Terrazas is stunning - clean and comfortable with everything one could need to have a relaxing vacation (including a blender for frozen rum drinks!). The house was workable for 3 couples, including 4 children - the 2 boys slept on an air mattress on the second level landing floor. The property is very private and extremely well kept - and the views are so much more impressive than the pictures capture. Our favorite place to hang out was the gazebo overlooking the Whale's Tail. Even in the hot weather, there was always a comfortable breeze under the shady canopy - a perfect place to enjoy a slushy rum punch and a good book.
A couple points worth mentioning... 1. A 4X4 is a MUST. While most of the roads are paved, the road up to house is packed dirt with lots of bumps and steep inclines. One couple had arranged for a 4X4 and when they arrived to pick up the car they were told there were no 4X4s available. They were given a Toyota Corolla. While they did make it up the hill - an adventure in the best circumstances - it was a close thing. They ended up not using the car at all until they were able to exchange it for a 4X4 half way through our vacation. 2. There is a fabulous pub less than a half mile from the house - "The Jolly Roger". We were there regularly for their AMAZING wings (over 20 different flavors) and storm fries. DO NOT MISS THIS!
Prior to our arrival I worked with Stephen to schedule all our tours, no mean feat when you have 3 families to plan around. He was most helpful, extremely responsive, and patient with all my questions and and various needs to accommodate 10 people. When we arrived in Dominical he was waiting for us at his shop and personally escorted us up to the property. He gave us a brief tour, efficiently worked through the administrative stuff, and recommended some local places for food and souvenirs, including the Jolly Roger (THANK YOU STEPHEN!). We had a few issues during our stay, but they were handled promptly and courteously - Stephen was immediately responsive to all our needs.
We've all unanimously agreed that we would return to both Dominical and Casa Las Terrazas. Thank you for a wonderful vacation... Pura Vida!"

"I am normally not one to write reviews however we recently stayed at Bosque en el Cielo and had an absolutely amazing experience. The pictures of this home do not do it justice. We enjoyed many sunset nights in the pool and enjoyed listening to the many sounds of the jungle. We were showed where the home was located and found it a little tricky to find the next time. A 4-wheel drive car is a must and hopefully you know how to drive a standard. Lynne was very easy to work with an very accommodating. This was the best vacation we have ever been on. Thanks!!!!!"

"Our stay at Casa de Suenos was a great experience. We drove from the the airport and stayed near Jaco for a week. We then drove south for about an hour and easily found Dominical and met up with the property manager who took us to the house. We were very happy to see that the house had such an incredible view and was also very private. We spent a lot of time on the large porch enjoying the sunsets and lighting shows. We came during the rainy season so some nights had some Tstorms but overall it was pretty dry all day. The house was only a few minutes drive to town and any number of beach access points. We felt like we had our own private piece of paradise as there wasn't anyone else around to make noise. Some of the places to stay in town were very close to other hotels/hostels/homes and seemed more noisy. We could not have asked for a more perfect place to explore some of Costa Rica's best sites."
