  • The Wild Life is Amazing

    "Since this was our first time visiting Costa Rica we weren't sure what to expect but as soon as we stepped into Casa Del Mar we knew this would be our favorite vacation house. Not only is the casita perfect for us as a couple, there would have been plenty of space for another couple too. The home was furnished beautifully and the views of the ocean were perfect. From jungle strolls to the perfect private beach...this home is a winner and we'll definitely be back!"

  • A woman on her own having the best vacation

    "I have read all the reviews and can only echo the facts and sentiments described however I want to add something here which may be helpful to a single woman vacationing on her own who faces concerns of safety and socializing. In Zancudo life is simple and simply enchanting from the warm surf to the inclusive community. I thought I had entered a community as close to paradise as one could imagine. My stay at Kris and Jim's Casita was so very charming, comfortable and restorative. I found I could have as much socializing or as much quiet time that one could desire and I my world became one of regular yoga three days a week at Los Cocos, long walks on the beach, hammock with a good book, frequent swims, many dinners with newly made friends at homes or any of the fabulous local restaurants and so much delicious fruits and vegetable arriving twice a week by the truck which stopped right outside your door if you left your sign out! I felt so safe, so surrounded by the best people and I met a number of women living on their own in Zancudo who had made this place their home. This is a very desirable lodging for all of the reasons you have read about by other reviewers who visited with their partners or with family but if you are a woman looking for a place to enjoy on your own I would highly recommend staying here in Zancudo at this Casita. Kris and Jim are wonderful hosts who share their knowledge and community fully with their guests and it is obvious that they take pride in the Casita which is spacious, clean well equipped and comfortable."

  • beautiful jungle house with spectacular views!

    "We were lucky to spend a few days in Bosque en el Cielo. Great spacious house. The master bedroom is surrounded by windows, with a great view. Very quiet and serene and full of light. Dominical is down the hill if you need to buy groceries or go to a restaurant or go to the beach. Otherwise it was nice to relax on the infinity pool or on the terrace listening to the birds and animals. The pics dont do justice to the real beauty of this property. Would love to rent it again in the future!"

  • Phenomenal Vacation at a spectacular location

    "We were a family of 8 travelling from Canada... 4 daughters aged 12 to 23, son-in-law and boyfriend, plus my wife and I. Everything about the trip was fantastic. The listing was not accurate....because the pictures don't do it justice! Unbelievable size, layout, comfort, etc. and what a view. The monkeys came by most days and the weather was perfect. Absolutely perfect. We were very comfortable with 8 people ...and there was room for more. Alex is excellent in his organizing of all our activities. We tried the horse back riding, repelling, national park tour and catamaran sail. All highly recommended. He organizes for pick up and drop off at the front door. Local restaurants were excellent too. Although cab drivers told us the walk to the beach was either "too long or too dangerous (due to traffic)", we walked it every day without problem. It was a great way to get some exercise after spending a day at the beach. Another thing Alex did was organize an on-site meal provided by a local chef (Kukula?). It was one of the best meals we have ever had, and we do a lot of travelling. We didn't rent a car, as the local grocery store was within walking distance, as were the restaurants, and we didn't mind the 20 minute walk to the beach. We flew to San Jose, and Alex organized the 2 1/2 trip for pick up and drop off at the end of the stay. The house was cleaned every day (we didn't realize that), and there are laundry facilities on site. We definitely over-packed. This is a flip flop and short/swim suit vacation. We didn't need to wear a sweater at any time during our stay. We will go back and I recommend this for families, couples, etc. The only caution I would have is for those with small children. The building code is no where near the restrictions that we have in Canada, and as such, the area around the main floor, infinity pool and stairs may be a safety hazard for small children. For adults, it adds to the beauty of this spectacular place! A+++++ and a 12 on a 1-10 scale. Truly spectatular."
