  • An Absolute Perfect Paradise!

    "This was our first time visiting Costa Rica and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were in paradise. Casa Las Terrazas is stunning - clean and comfortable with everything one could need to have a relaxing vacation (including a blender for frozen rum drinks!). The house was workable for 3 couples, including 4 children - the 2 boys slept on an air mattress on the second level landing floor. The property is very private and extremely well kept - and the views are so much more impressive than the pictures capture. Our favorite place to hang out was the gazebo overlooking the Whale's Tail. Even in the hot weather, there was always a comfortable breeze under the shady canopy - a perfect place to enjoy a slushy rum punch and a good book. A couple points worth mentioning... 1. A 4X4 is a MUST. While most of the roads are paved, the road up to house is packed dirt with lots of bumps and steep inclines. One couple had arranged for a 4X4 and when they arrived to pick up the car they were told there were no 4X4s available. They were given a Toyota Corolla. While they did make it up the hill - an adventure in the best circumstances - it was a close thing. They ended up not using the car at all until they were able to exchange it for a 4X4 half way through our vacation. 2. There is a fabulous pub less than a half mile from the house - "The Jolly Roger". We were there regularly for their AMAZING wings (over 20 different flavors) and storm fries. DO NOT MISS THIS! Prior to our arrival I worked with Stephen to schedule all our tours, no mean feat when you have 3 families to plan around. He was most helpful, extremely responsive, and patient with all my questions and and various needs to accommodate 10 people. When we arrived in Dominical he was waiting for us at his shop and personally escorted us up to the property. He gave us a brief tour, efficiently worked through the administrative stuff, and recommended some local places for food and souvenirs, including the Jolly Roger (THANK YOU STEPHEN!). We had a few issues during our stay, but they were handled promptly and courteously - Stephen was immediately responsive to all our needs. We've all unanimously agreed that we would return to both Dominical and Casa Las Terrazas. Thank you for a wonderful vacation... Pura Vida!"

  • Beautiful House, Santa Elena Monteverde

    "We were so glad to arrive and find this house to be everything it claimed to be. The property is in a good location, maybe a bit too far to walk to town for some, but doable if you like walking. It's a short drive though and easy to get back and forth. The house is new, modern, clean and well equipped. The owners are very good communicators as is their support family that lives in an adjoining part of the house. We had wonderful surprises like a plate of papaya picked right from a tree by our door and a delicious desert delivered as a surprise treat one night. You won't be disappointed with the property itself. As far as others who have mentioned the winds and in particular this location we are very sorry to have not taken them seriously enough. Yeah, a little wind, big deal. Well it's a big deal. It would be a great idea for the owners to put a kilo of ear plugs in a drawer for those who don't come prepared because the noise from the wind, it does howl, and the rattling of the windows and sliding doors makes it almost impossible to sleep. There are more sheltered places around Monteverde where the wind is not so noticeable, but this location is in an open field with no protection. Take heed and bring something to stuff in your ears. We took tour pamphlets and jammed them into the sliding door frame to reduce the rattling of a bedroom on the downward side of the wind direction which helped a little bit but nothing can reduce the howl of the wind streaming across the house. Maybe we were unlucky with the weather, but we asked and many said this was pretty typical winds for the area. The wind does not let up, and is at its strongest at night so be prepared. Still a wonderful area to visit and we would go back as the house is truly a 5 star, but just a bit more prepared. Good value and caring owners were the key."

  • Our new home away from home!

    "What struck us most was the extent to which every detail was attended to and every effort made to make us feel completely at home! Greg and his staff (and yes, including the ever adorable Luna) have thought of everything. Their hospitality, assistance and guidance, the conveniences that one would expect and the little details such as an intimate place to BBQ, a comfy hammock to relax in and even reading materials to share in a little makeshift library were all very much appreciated; this place really has it all! We feel fortunate to have found this place and to have met Greg. During our stay in Santa Teresa, having this place to return to every evening truly felt like we were returning to our home away from home. Pura Vida Greg!"

  • Paradise

    "The property is amazingly beautiful and the owners could not be better people. Our best days were doing activities recommended by the host. Our children did not want to leave! Casa trogon has two bedrooms and one bath with daily maid service. We cooked several full meals in our kitchen and played lazily on the porch in the pool and in the hammock. The owner has amazing koi ponds and even let our children hand feed them one afternoon. We saw a huge variety of birds, butterflies, and monkeys even travelled through one early afternoon. We could not have asked for a better experience!"
