"This was our third time back to mariposa vacation homes.. We have stayed at every one of the properties for some period of time.. Each one is incredible in their own way.. This year, they added beach cruiser bikes and 2 surfboards per property which was an incredible addition.. The bikes were perfect for cruising around town and on the beach.. And the boards were perfect for helping some beginning surfers tackle the incredible surf out front.. The concierge and staff could not be more helpful and friendly.. Any questions or concerns were only a phone call away even though there were few.. We have been vacationing in Santa teresa for several weeks at a time for the past 13 years... I couldn't imagine staying at any other property. The staff have become my extended Costa Rican family and I look forward to seeing the incredible staff just as much as I do the beautiful views Costa Rica has to offer... I can't express how absolutely amazing this property is..."

"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!"

"I was there for with 10 other people for a bachelor party. I think everyone in the group agreed that it was probably the best vacation they had ever had. The house is amazing, it feels like you're in an MTV crib type of place. It's literally on the beach, and the beach in Costa Rica is pretty unreal. Jim (the owner of the house) was awesome. He set up ATV riding, transportation, and the chef for us, all for better prices than anyone else could do. We had the chef everyday. It's pretty amazing how cheap it is and how amazing the food was. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU GETTING THE CHEF EVERYDAY!! Location is perfect in regards to the city too, as it's literally a $3 cab ride. (you could walk easily but we didn't) There is a security guard/yard keeper there 24 hours a day, and trust me when I say a security guard is important to have. They'll call a cab for you, set up beach volleyball for you, pretty much whatever you need. If you're going to JACO beach this is the place to be. If you tell people in town where you're staying they all know which house it is and how nice it is. I highly recommend casa rio mar!!"

"Since the reservation call till the departure, our time in the house was just perfect. Heather, Josue and Roxana they made us feel so respected and loved that honestly we hesitate several times on left the house and we want to keep it for one more week.
This is a very private space, warm and made it for fun and family, on the middle of a private reserve, we enjoyed the coffee in the mornings watching the monkeys crossing at 300 feet from us, really near of lot of facilities, quiet and private, clean and the house keeper is so worried to provide the best service and be there for all your needs.
From now on this will be my only stay place in Manuel Antonio."
