  • first stay hope to return

    "This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we feel like we hit the jackpot!! It didn't take long to transition from our fast-paced Washington DC home to this magical and enchanting property. Each morning we woke to the sounds of tropical birds and beautiful vistas. We dipped in the pool throughout the day while gazing at the ocean on the and watching for the resident sloughs and white-chinned monkeys. We were there with two other couples and stayed in the apartment which was fully equipped with a small kitchen, gorgeous tiled bathroom, and beautiful native wood walls. We loved the privacy and could easily join our friends in the main house ( 30 second walk to house door). We felt pampered and had everything we needed. The main house is spectacular - all the rooms were spacious and luxurious. The living and dining rooms are totally glassed allowing constant views of the landscape and ocean. The pool just off the living room is amazing and a popular gathering spot. How glorious to dip in and jump out to the recliners and look at the ocean view or just stay in the water and soak up the sun. In addition to the main pool off the living, there is a smaller pool with a waterfall just outside one of the bedrooms and is accessible thru the sliding doors. It is great for late night dips to relax and unwind. The beaches, stores, restaurants, grocery stores and coffee houses are just down the hill via a nice walk or short car ride. Kent and Estella, the property managers, were very accommodating and helped us plan excursions (zip lining, vanilla farm (great!) and hikes to waterfalls). This is a wondeerful property and we look forward to a return visit."

  • Fantastic house, great location

    "This house was ideal for our Costa Rican getaway. It had all the amenities we needed, and not to mention a spectacular view. Casa Blue Wind is within walking distance of some great restaurants and shops, and a bus ride away from the beach. Ricky made the experience all the more enjoyable by recommending restaurants and assisting us with several events including a catamaran and jungle tour. We especially liked walking to and from the beach on the back road where we saw several kinds of monkeys. I highly recommend booking CBW for your next vacation! Pura vida!"

  • Living with Nature in the Rain Forest

    "Our family stayed at Brooks Hacienda for a week over the 2014 Thanksgiving holiday and had a wonderful trip. As other reviews have stated, this is a great location to see the rainforest and wildlife right from the deck and poolside. During our stay we were able to see and hear all types of monkeys and birds with a beautiful backdrop of the rainforest preserve in the backyard. We prefer to stay in a quieter, more relaxing place away from the crowded resorts, so we found Brooks Hacienda to be the perfect spot. The pool is great and all the features of the kitchen, bedrooms, and bathroooms are very nice. The house was very clean and the beds are comfortable. Laundry facilities are also available. This is the first time that we have rented a place where the owners were so close by, and we found it very helpful to have Randy and Kate available for questions when we needed it. Kate hooked us up with a great guide for a day trip to the Manuel Antonio Preserve and a jungle canopy tour that included ziplining, swimming at a waterfall, horseback riding in the mountains, and a Costa Rican style lunch at Santa Juana, a small village high in the mountains. This was the best day trip and tour experience that our family has ever been on. Both tours picked us up and dropped us off at the house, so it was very convenient. Kate and Randy really went out of their way to make sure our family had a great experience and had everything we need. Kate even picked up some groceries ahead of time for us since we were arriving late. She also had great recommendations for local restaurants and we found Cafe Milagro, Emilio's Cafe, El Lagarto, and El Wagon Pizza to be very good. We would recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle as the road is a little rough to get to the house, and it is nice to have if you want to explore any beaches or other activities that are off the main roads. This is a quiet neighborhood, so if you are looking for a party spot, this probably would not be the best fit. We can't wait to come back....Pura Vida!"

  • Incredible views!!!!!

    "We stayed with my sister and her family at this amazing house. We truly had the most memorable vacation. Every morning we were greeted by Howler, Squirrel, and white faced monkeys. The view of the ocean was spectacular and we were away from the crowds. The house was spotless everyday because of the housekeeper!!! Terry was always so helpful during the entire process of planning this trip!!! We are planning a trip for this December and while we like to go to different places, we are considering doing the same trip again. Make sure you take a look at the memory book-it is really fun to read about previous travelers experiences and write your own!!!"
