  • Costa Rica - Paradise

    "Casa de Carroll was great. We stayed for one week and would definitely go back. The home is exactly as shown in the pictures and was a great base for our adventures. Our party included 2 adults and 4 kids (18, 18, 16, 12). The owner and local manager were always responsive to our questions before and during our stay. We saw monkeys, birds and a horse (in the pasture below the house) on a daily basis. The location was perfect and made excursions to Ojochal, Uvita, Dominical and other areas within easy driving distance. The home is very private....you don't see another house or person while on property. Most evenings were spent in the pool after a long day at the beach or exploring. The house was well equipped and had almost everything we needed (cooking utensils, pool towels, hammocks, hair dryer, etc.). A couple of maintenance issues were addressed quickly by the local manager. I highly recommend Tito at Uvita360 if you want to rent surf boards. We rented the boards and took them to Playa Hermosa, our favorite beach. Whitewater rafting with Karlos and his son, Ernesto, from Autentico Adventures was a fun day. Osa Canopy Tour was exhilarating. The ATV tour with Diamante Tours was cool. We saw waterfalls and panoramic views that we probably would have missed otherwise. The waterfall at El Pavon is not to be missed (not part of the ATV tour). Be advised that eating out in Costa Rica is not cheap. I highly recommend eating at the local sodas and buying fruit at the roadside stands ...it will save you A LOT OF MONEY. The local grocery stores were well stocked, too. Exchange your currency for Costa Rican Colones. For the best exchange rate go to a bank, not the airport currency exchange. Bank = 528 Colones per $1USD v Airport Currency Exchange = 460 Colones per $1USD (13% difference!!). Most local businesses give you 500 Colones....not bad, but exchanging cash currency for Colones at a bank is easy (btw...there is a bank on the top concourse at the SJO airport, don't use the current exchange near baggage claim). My last piece of advice is be sure to have very detailed driving directions from SJO to Casa de Carroll (GPS even better). We got lost in San Jose and on the way to Jaco. You will need about 1,000 Colones for tolls on Route 27. However, once at Casa de Carroll, you will relax and enjoy. Thank you Jim and Patti for sharing your piece of paradise with us."

  • Pura Vida Paradise

    "A unique and beautiful property that has stolen a small piece of my heart. I rented this home with my boyfriend and we enjoyed a week of absolute relaxation and privacy . A luxe experience. It's ideal for up to 4 couples, but for just two, completely amazing. Each bedroom is very isolated from the others if privacy is paramount. The master suite is by far the best, but the other 3 are cozy and charming. Photos can't do this house justice. Unique architecture, lovely details, comfortable, well equipped. Amazing acoustics if you're a musician. Daily toilet frog check became an amusing pastime, early evening is usually when they emerge. Don't be surprised by geckoes, lizards, moths, insects and birds entering the house. All friendly creatures though. Birdwatching is best done very early (5am) from the pool deck or the master suite deck, late afternoon is also a lively time. On our last morning we saw 20 toucans visit. The one thing missing from the house is a hammock experience. I bought a couple hammocks on the beach in Dominical and some rope from the local grocery store and hung them by the pool and main level deck. Highly recommended. More details: 4x4 necessary for the drive up, but nearly all rentals are 4x4 anyway. No direct sun on the main house till noon so it stays relatively cool though the morning, a/c in each bedroom is a lovely respite but not absolutely necessary. Recommend the fruit and veg stands on the road to San Isidro de el General for fresh produce, coconut juice and coconut oil. Souvenir shopping in Dominical is nice, there are beach stalls and established storefronts. Don't be afraid to compare prices and bargain. Algeria spa in Dominical is amazing for massages and facials. Inexpensive and professional. Neil is a professional, thoughtful, thorough and accessible host. Working with him was a pleasure. We're looking forward to our next visit. Pura Vida! Viva Casa Tangaroa!"

  • An Absolute Perfect Paradise!

    "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!"
