  • Unforgettable vacation home

    "This was our first trip to Costa Rica, and we wanted something that was private, but also close to activities. We found Lattice House on Trip Advisor, and read so many amazing reviews, that we decided to book it. There are so many amazing things about the home: -It is very private. There is one other rental home on the property, but it is located far enough from Lattice House that you barely know it's there. -The view is amazing. We couldn't get enough of the awesome view of the coastline below. -The Pool! The infinity pool was the highlight of the house. My daughter played in the pool for hours each day, and we could comfortably watch her from inside the house or on the deck. Is was great for us adults too. Cooling off in the pool at the end of a day of adventures was so refreshing. -Trails on the property: There are a number of trails on the property, one of which leads to an amazing waterfall. -Wildlife-We had a show one morning from the monkeys up in the trees in front of the house. We spent about 30 minutes watching them leap from tree to tree. -Amenities: Fully equipped kitchen. (We made dinner at the house many nights) TVs with satellite cable and WiFi Alarm system, safes, and gated entrance. Helpful and responsive caretaker Washer and Dryer A/C in the bedrooms Proximity to activities: Lattice House is about a 10 minute drive to the town of Uvita, where you can goto the BM supermarket to get any groceries, find restaurants, get gas, etc. Also the beaches are in this area too. My stepson took a surf lesson, and my wife and daughter took a horseback riding tour. One morning I jogged about a half mile down the road from the Lattice House front gate, and there was a small entrance to a beach right there. Accessibility: Lattice House is right off the main highway. And just the house itself is beautiful. Lovely design, decor, and furnishings. Pat, the owner, and Ana, the caretaker were both very responsive to any needs, suggestions, questions that we had. This is a place I can't say enough positive things about. Just a note: There is no A/C in the main living quarters (living room, dining room, kitchen), although there are fans that circulate the air. Also, bugs and geckos share the living quarters. There's not a ton of bugs, but they are there. After a while you start to hardly notice them."

  • Beautiful Home!

    "Costa Rica is everything as described! Breathtaking scenery, friendly people and wonderful nature. Kevin's house is beautiful, we especially enjoyed the amazing local art work. The house is extremely spacious and well kept. The daytime personal waterfall at the large swimming pool is a great way to relax and enjoy the superb weather. The activities book was a wonderful help in planning many excursions. Parks, beaches and other amenities are all a short drive away. We always felt safe and secure while on the property. If you are looking secluded getaway, although private, there are other houses near by."

  • Wonderful stay in fantastic home!

    "We had a wonderful stay at Casa Zabala a couple of weeks ago. The home was spacious and charming. We appreciated the warm hospitality of Alex, the brother-in-law of Ken who was away the weekend we were there. The plantation is so peaceful and tropical- mangoes, bananas, mandarin oranges abound and renters are welcome to pick and enjoy. Our 3 young kids fell in love with Estella, the farm's German Shepard! She slept on the porch all night. No satellite tv, but we brought a kindle and laptop and watched netflix with no trouble. Our only regret was not bringing along more family/friends to enjoy this home! So much space went unused! I could have laid on the hammock on the upstairs porch for several days...yet we had only booked one night and were on our way to the beach after seeing the cloud forest. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!"

  • Paradise in Beach Haven

    "Maison Marazul is situated in paradise on a beautiful piece of coastline, walking distance to both Flor Blanca and Pranamar Villas. So without getting in your car you can enjoy the finest food (at Pranamar), yoga at both, and excellent beaches. Mario, the manager, made all the arrangements so easy--he has the patience of a saint, and delivers exceptional advice and service with competence, efficiency and professionalism. In addition to making all our housing arrangements at the house, he reserved accommodations and transport for our party of 6 in San Jose and up North. We love Mario! And Tania provided excellent concierge services, including arrangements for paddle-boarding and massages. Now back to the house--it could not be more beautiful and comfortable. Five days was not long enough to try out all the different outdoor seating areas. We watched the monkeys playing in the trees from the comfort of our lounge chairs--a National Geographic experience in the front yard! We enjoyed the beach sunsets, the sounds of the birds and cicadas, the iguanas , the hammocks, the pool and even the bats. The beds and house could not be more comfortable, serviced daily by a housekeeper and grounds person. For food we would highly recommend The Bakery in Santa Theresa (try the coffee and crumbled cheese cake), Mary's Restaurant in Mal Pais, Pranamar's restaurant. When we go back to Costa Rica, we will certainly arrange our trip with Mario."
