  • Imagine Paradise

    "Imagine paradise, now imagine your home in Paradise; Casa Bella Vista! The Villa is nestled in the jungle high above the rest of Manuel Antonio,but within walking distance to restaurants, stores and an ATM. A bit of a trek to the beach but doable or a quick taxi ride with a great payoff, awesome beaches and fun restaurants with ceviche and plenty of beer or the local drink cacique. When we got to CBV we were greeted by the wonderful smile and warm welcome of our gracious and generous host/concierge Sani Teni. We had arranged all our tours and activities in advance with Sani. All our activities were 1st class and made our stay effortless and exceptional. CBV includes, Sani, our guard Coco who alerted us to all visiting and resident animals. 3 resident sloths, mamma,baby and male, toucans,other birds, troops of Spider, White Face and Howler monkeys,lizards and frogs to name the coolest animals that came by. We had maid service daily,laundry service and a chef by request. We had an amazing dinner elegantly prepared and served on our beautiful patio overlooking the infinity pool that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. The picture cannot do justice to the serene and exquisite view. Our group of 8 recommend the Villa and the immense expertise of Sani."

  • Extremely happy customer

    "This was our third time back to mariposa vacation homes.. We have stayed at every one of the properties for some period of time.. Each one is incredible in their own way.. This year, they added beach cruiser bikes and 2 surfboards per property which was an incredible addition.. The bikes were perfect for cruising around town and on the beach.. And the boards were perfect for helping some beginning surfers tackle the incredible surf out front.. The concierge and staff could not be more helpful and friendly.. Any questions or concerns were only a phone call away even though there were few.. We have been vacationing in Santa teresa for several weeks at a time for the past 13 years... I couldn't imagine staying at any other property. The staff have become my extended Costa Rican family and I look forward to seeing the incredible staff just as much as I do the beautiful views Costa Rica has to offer... I can't express how absolutely amazing this property is..."

  • 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!"
