  • More time in Paradise

    "This was our second stay at Fiesta Del Rio, and was during the Rainy Season this time. All we can say is that wet or dry, the accommodations are very good, and an exceptional bargain. If going during the Rainy Season, be sure your clothes are "quick-dry" as the sun is only out for a couple of hours each day. We have recommended Fiesta Del Rio to others, and have had great reports."

  • Great view, lovely little village

    "Truly a little slice of paradise. It was our first time in Costa Rica - our daughter was working at Reserva Playa Tortuga and we wanted to visit. Casa Ylang Ylang is exactly as described, great views, well equipped kitchen, roomy. Favorite spot was the rocking chairs on the front porch. We visited Dominical, Manuel Antonio and hiked local trails. Ken Stone, local manager, did a great job welcoming us. We had a 4 wheel drive and had no problems getting around. Our friends rented a car and managed the drive up to the house with no problems. I would not recommend arriving at night. If we return to this area, we would stay here again."

  • Private Paradise!

    "What a beautiful place to call home for nine days! The house has everything you could possibly need to live comfortably and lots of outdoor furniture to enjoy the gorgeous views. The pool is perfect to cool off in and the laundry a nice convenience that not all VRBO's in CR include. We saw toucans, an iguana, squirrel monkeys, gekkos and heard the howler monkeys a few times. Karen has created an information book about restaurants and sites in the area; a great resource. Denise, the property manager was invaluable, going out of her way to make our visit the best it could be making many wonderful suggestions of places to visit and even joined us a few times. David, who does the pool cleaning and other general maintenance was also very helpful and kind each time we saw him and talked with us about life in CR. We saw David more frequently than most guests likely would as there was some issues with a toilet but he was very quick to come up with a solution. As others have said, a 4x4 is recommended but the drive would not deter us from returning. The VRBO is very central to many surrounding sites: -Manuel Antonio park is just over 1hrs away, where we saw a great array of animals. -The Boruca Village, where they make wood masks and weave fabric the way their ancestors did, is about an hour from the VRBO and was a quick half-day trip. There is also a beautiful waterfall in Boruca (ask at the museum for directions to the Cascada). -Cascada El Pavon (waterfall) is very close to the VRBO and once you park it’s only a two minute walk to the fall so well worth a visit. There is a nice swimming hole there. -The Corcovado and Mangrove tour with Perla del Sur tour company is a must do! You take a beautiful boat ride to Corcovado where you will see tons of wildlife, they supply lunch and then you go to a beautiful waterfall where you can swim and then boat through mangroves. Take hiking boots for the trails. -Playa Ventana beach is nearby and is famous for its many caves. -Playa Dominical is also fairly close and is a really cute Rastafarian/hippy village. -Playa Ballena Beach Club was one of our favourite stops. It's close to the VRBO and is owned by a nice couple. They have food and good drinks. They are also on a beautiful sandy beach that we greatly enjoyed. We also visited many fabulous nearby restaurants; Mama y Papás, Citrus, La Fagota, and Azul. We would happily recommend this VRBO and will return one day (hopefully sooner than later!)"
