  • Wonderful Experience!

    "What a tropical paradise! Beautiful home that is surrounded by beauty & nature. Loved the monkeys in the surrounding trees as well as the fruit on the property that we used to mix "beverages"! The pool is relaxing & we grilled on the deck for dinner as well. The people we met both neighbors & in the towns of Santa Teresa & Montezuma were extremely nice & helpful. There is a lot to see & do or just enjoy a beautiful day/sunset on the water as well. Thank you to Rachel & Daniel for all that you did. We will definitely be back"

  • Great hideaway for those seeking wildlife!

    "My wife and I had a great time staying in Playa lapa. Every morning we were woken up by the scarlet macaws, monkeys would visit the mango tree that hangs over the house and it is well situated for hikes in Corcovado. As long as your are prepared with a cooler and all the necessities that Helene tells you to bring you will have a great stay."

  • Favorite Spot in Costa Rica

    "This was our third trip to Casa Amarilla and I always leave hoping there will be many more to come. This time we only stayed for a week. In the past we'd stayed for a month. I wish we could stay for a year! We absolutely love it here. Pavones is an amazing area that is still sort of a best kept secret. On the drive from SJO to Finca Estrella you pass through the bustling touristy towns of Jaco, Hermosa, and Manuel Antonio where you sometimes see more American's than Ticos. As you drive further south everything becomes a little calmer. The beaches are beautiful. We love Pilon because we are almost always the only people there and it is a short drive down the hill. My husband even made the journey by foot two years ago. I definitely recommend a 4WD vehicle for getting around. Each year that we've stayed we've seen monkeys, toucans, and macaws all from the deck. Nature is all around you here. You see from your bedroom windows what others pay for tour guides to see. And if you don't notice it on your own Freddy is always there to help point things out. I could go on and on about the incredible kindness of the people who work on Finca Estrella for pages and pages. Freddy is the most easy going and helpful person. My children talk about Grace all the time. We were happy to go on an excursion to a waterfall with her husband Enrique who is a phenomenal tour guide. The minute we get home from this place I start looking for flights back."

  • Osa Vista Acres and Casa Vista are spectacular!

    "You'll absolutely love this very special part of Costa Rica's southeast Pacific Coast, the interesting towns from Quepos to Ojochal, the "string of pearls" beaches, and Diane's and Peter's beautiful place and spectacular hospitality. I stayed at Casa Vista for 10 days in March 2015. The casita is perfect - completely well-appointed and has everything you need. The view is breathtaking -- all day any day, but especially at sunrise. Diane and Peter are great and so into their community - they have wonderful spot-on suggestions and recommendations, really know the area thoroughly, and can help you plan your time there. It's also great just to hang around the beautiful pool with them and Derby, the darling Australian shepherd. Poolside, I had close-up experiences with a Toucan, a very busy 3-toed sloth (believe it or not!), and a family of howler monkeys making their way through the trees. Unbelievable. There is so much to do and see in this area, and Highway 34 is a magnificent road in perfect condition. Calle Escaleras, off of which Osa Vista Acres/Casa Vista is located, is as challenging and Diane and Peter advise you --- do rent a 4WD SUV. It is in fact mandatory! You get used to the road -- it's only 3 kms from Hwy 34. I can't say enough --- book your visit now and you'll be fighting me for rebookings!"
