  • Enchanting, Secluded Tropical Hacienda

    "We just returned from two weeks at Don Tomas' enchanting tropical hacienda where we had a spectacularly relaxing vacation! We thoroughly enjoyed the feeling of seclusion that his lovely home offers, while still being easily accessible to groceries and the funky coastal town of Santa Teresa (which has an array of exceptionally good restaurants!). Our favorite activities included reclining on the wrap around porch to delight in the myriad of tropical flowers and wildlife, (iguanas, hummingbirds, butterflies, birds, squirrels, crabs) that abound on the unique grounds--which are also spectacular in that they are filled with ancient tropical trees, hanging vines and tropical flowers. The backdrop of crashing surf sounds are as soothing as the surfing is exhilarating! Returning from the beach to an outdoor shower, lovely private pool and porch hammocks was also a treat. The house is simply furnished, yet has all the basics that one needs--with a very comfortable queen size bed. Charming murals decorate the rooms and the porch houses a lovely sculpted column of intertwined goddesses. Josefa, the caretaker, is exceptionally kind and welcoming and was ever so helpful with whatever was needed--a caring and responsive hostess! We were enchanted, are telling others about this tropical beachfront gem of a place--and are already looking forward to our next trip there!"

  • 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."

  • Jungle Paradise

    "We spent a week here as two couples. It exceeded our expectations. We felt like we were tucked right into the jungle, with an amazing view of the Dominicalito beach and gorgeous sunsets every night. Being a wildlife photograph buff, I was kept very busy! We arrived in the late afternoon, and it seemed everywhere I looked I found new, beautiful birds to photograph, including the toucan and vulture sentry that watched over us most days. The sound of the cicadas was deafening at times, but did not keep us awake. The beach below was well worth a visit, something we unfortunately did not discover until our last day. We did not have a vehicle for the first few days, and that was a mistake, because it is a long, hot hike up the steep road if you go down for a walk. We were grateful for the pool. A four wheel drive is definitely recommended. Dave and Deb were such gracious hosts, always ready to help, and we thoroughly enjoyed our day with them at their "secret beach". It was fun seeing Deb teach my 70 year old brother in law how to boogie board! One word of caution, the steps downstairs are beautiful, but if you are like me, and don't step towards the front of each step, the rocky edge scrapes your heals. Since that's the only complaint, you can't go wrong here. We even enjoyed sharing with our friends the night a small boa came for a visit outside. If we have one regret, having traveled south from here and then returning north again to Tamarindo, is that we did not cut our trip south a little and return here for a few more days. Thanks Dave and Deb for making our stay so memorable."
