  • Dream vacation destination perfection!

    "We booked the villa for a birthday destination and had all the information needed to prepare for the trip. Nancy and Steve are great at answering any questions not already listed on their FAQ pages. Sabrina, the concierge with CRneeds, was superb! She arranged our pick up from the airport and was in constant communication via email after the reservation was made. She met us at Villa ls Vista and gave us the tour of the two bedroom spacious home. She was very thorough and answered any questions we had. She was not rushed and was very pleasant as she explained about the villa, life in Costa Rica, as she showed us around the villa situated above the ocean with spectacular views from both the downstairs and upstairs balcony. The villa itself is Pura Vida! If you don't know what that means, come to Costa Rica and experience it. Tile floors throughout, rich native wood furniture, spacious bathrooms and any amenity you would need for your stay is provided. The pool gives you cool relaxation among the tropical flowers and towering ficus. Villa la Vista is very secure and private. We felt safe with the extra security measures the owners have installed. They have also made sure you feel like Villa la Vista is your home in paradise. Most everything from artwork to needful things can be found locally in the shops. I fell in love with the wooden coaster set and easily found one of my own for very little cost. Feel free to buy local made and more than likely you will see them making it for you on the spot! The walk to the beach is fine walking down but walking back up is moderate to difficult. Take your time, take rest stops at your own pace and wear shoes suitable for steep gravel/muddy terrain. There is plenty of shade, sand, sun, and surf once you get to the beach. House and grounds keepers are wonderful and keep the villa in pristine shape for you. Ask Sabrina and you might just get a home cooked Tico meal if you would like. She can recommend anything of your liking and arrange any tour you or your family might enjoy. There is WiFi provided at Villa la Vista, games, books, and TV/cable to occupy if you are indoors during a storm (we stayed during the start of rainy season and it rained/stormed every day but the sun did share the sky for most of the day) but don't let those amenities keep you from the Costa Rican experience. Book your Pura Vida vacation today!"

  • Nice place to stop and see Jaco

    "We spend 3 nights at the Stephanie and John condo. They were very very nice with us. They were always available for questions and help if needed. The condo is very well with 3 king beds. A lot of space with a wonderful view on the beach. It's well located, close to the main street where you can find easily grocery store, souvenir, etc. My family really enjoys the stay at that condo. Thanks Martin"

  • Beautifully designed vacation home steps to the beach

    "We stayed at this beautifully designed home for a week in late March. The pictures are spot on -- the house is spacious, comfortable, and well-equipped. The pool was wonderful after a day on the beach or an evening out. The beach is less than a city block away and the zip lines, hiking etc are easily accessible. Although the house is on the main road through Playa Carmen, this means there are grocery stores, yoga classes and restaurants within walking distance so non-drivers (in our case my husband and teenage son) can still wander around. The owner was accommodating and helpful."

  • Awesome House!

    "What you see is what you get! Stunning views, and relaxing pool, nice outdoor sitting area (covered) and very comfortable bedrooms. The house has everything you need! Trina was an amazing host and resolved all small issues we had. And fast. Though he was not there, it was great dealing with Kevin as well. Roberto took some of our group members out for a tour and introduced them to the jungle, the different trees, animals and birds. Atlas, the cat, took care of the surroundings and we were happy we didn't see any snakes during our stay! The best part of the experience was to be awaken by the noise of the monkeys and the birds. I recorded a 3 min audio so I can set it up as my wake up sound track... priceless. The views were stunning! I strongly recommend this home!"
