"Lovely home, convenient to stores yet far enough away to avoid traffic and noise. All the rooms have A/C and the pool is a delightful addition. If there were any issues with the house the owner, as well as her staff ,were immensely responsive and available. The house is wi-fi, local calls are free, and the boogie boards were a terrific add-on. We used the public beach which was easily accessible, a gym at a nearby hotel called Los Altos,, and we shopped for food at the local markets. My sons' rented jet skis and we were able to rent chairs and umbrellas from "mary" at this same public beach ($6/day). There is a beautiful view of the mountains from the upper balcony and combined with our morning coffee watching the monkeys; it truly was "pura vida"."

"Hello. I was part of the group from NY, GA, and CA that just ended their stay at Casa Fantástica. Amazing accommodations; the rooms were comfortable and the service was terrific. I especially want to extend my thanks to the chef and sous chef. Every meal they prepared was better than the one before. And, to the concierge, who attended to every detail of our requests with patience and finesse. These three individuals are essential elements of the experience and you would do well to do whatever is necessary to keep them in your employ.
Thank you for being part of a wonderful vacation week and helping to make the celebration of our friend's 50-year milestone birthday that much more memorable.

"Our family, including 2 teen girls and my mother, enjoyed our week at this beautiful secluded air-conditioned rental home up in the hills of Costa Rica. A 4x4 is a MUST to get up the dirt/rocky hills, but we all thought that was part of the adventure. If you like to be right in the middle of all the action, then this is probably not for you, but my family loved it. We all enjoyed adventures each day in nearby Quepos/Manuel Antonio and then returned for a swim in the pool to watch the sunset before heading out again for dinner or making dinner at the house. It is at least a 15 minute trip to get to Quepos and about 5 minutes of it is on a dirt road through African Palm Trees. The home is located in a gated area, but you literally can't see another home from it. It has beautiful views and off to the far south, you can see the Pacific Ocean in the distance. The people that manage the home live nearby and were very helpful in getting us to the home and helping us locate good restaurants. As with all homes, there were a few very minor things that the owner needs to fix, but none of it was really a big deal. (The dishwasher ran loudly, there were some scratchy animal noises in the vents, and the wood around the pool needs to be replaced.) The home is very clean and there is plenty of space for everyone to enjoy themselves. Also, the owner, was very helpful and easy to work with via phone/email prior to our visit. We would definitely stay again. We heard about a good adventure even further up the mountain that we didn't get to try, but hear is good."

"The driveway is a bit steep but the pay off is the view. Beautiful view of the ocean and surrounding jungle. We heard the Howler Monkeys on our first day and that was just the start. We had white-face capuchin monkeys, squirrell monkeys and toucans all around us and we didn't even have to leave the deck! You can walk to a number of restaurants. Our favorite was Claro Que Si Seafood Restaurant. We did a guided walk in the park, well worth paying for a guide, you will see things with a guide that you would never see on your own. The beach in the park is a bit crowded but very nice. I wish we could have stayed longer."
