The Best Vacation Ever!
"I had never been out of the country so I was a little hesitant to go to Costa Rica....but it was absolutely amazing! I never felt unsafe or uncomfortable! There is so much to do but if you want to relax and just embrace the beautiful country....this is the place! Jota, Katia and Carmen are wonderful! Every meal we had was delicious! The villa was always very clean and always had fresh towels. Jota helped us book our activities like zip lining, hiking and anything else you can think of! The beach is amazing! It's about a 15 minute hike down to your own personal beach! There are plenty of beautiful beaches around all within a 10 minute drive!
I have to say my favorite part (including my kids) was the monkeys! They are so sweet and adorable! They came to visit about 4-5 times while we were there. We also saw toucans in the morning! You can't find that kind of experience anywhere!
We can not wait to go back!!!"

"Casa Carolina exceeded our expectations on every level! The property is a lush, pristine paradise with breathtaking views in every direction. From the moment we arrived, it was a spectacular experience. The Casa Carolina team delighted us daily by going above and beyond to offer assistance with anything imaginable - from Saul searching for surf board rentals with the teens to Lisbeth preparing local fruit plates for breakfast and Willy arranging a top-notch private guide for the Manuel Antonio national park. It is clear that they take immense personal pride in hosting guests. While there are plenty of excellent places to dine nearby, we ended up having dinner at home every night since it was so relaxing. Lisbeth’s homemade chips and guacamole were out of this world, and Roger (the personal chef) prepared four-course culinary masterpieces that would rival the finest restaurant. In addition to exploring the rain forest and "shredding" some waves, we ventured out into town nearly every day and have never met local residents more friendly and helpful than the people of Quepos. This is truly a trip we'll remember forever. Thank you Casa Carolina!"

"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."
