  • Gorgeous views, spacious and wonderful service!

    "Casa Luz is situated overlooking your own personal jungle! Every room has a view better than the next! We spotted a sloth, toucans and a monkey in the trees and enjoyed a symphony of birds every morning on the deck. Our boys, 13 and 16, loved the pool and all of the adventure activities Natalia arranged for us (Catamaran, Mangroves, Ziplining to name a few). We had a wonderful meal prepared for us the first night (for the same price as a meal in town) and ate leftovers much of the week. There is a little store just outside your driveway gates for the basics and many tours provide a typical Costa Rican meal. We enjoyed El Avion and Victoria's for dinner, but there are many choices we weren't able to visit this time. We would strongly suggest renting a car with a GPS (programmed for Costa Rica). We drove and navigated our way to many places quite easily, despite some roads being quite bumpy. While many people did walk to restaurants, etc. from this home--it was at least 1/2-3/4 mile to the main road with no shoulder. Locals seemed very accustomed to this, but we were happy to have a car. Take the time to visit places off the beaten path-- our visit to RainMaker was one of our favorite days. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of our home and Manuel Antonio. It isn't fancy or brand new, but there is definite pride in ownership and we had everything we needed for our stay. The people, especially Natalia, were gracious and accommodating and truly lived up to the motto--Pura Vida!!!"

  • A Month In Paradise!

    "We chose Casa Mono Titi for a month long stay and were not disappointed. Everything was great from the amenities of the house to the fabulous wide open view. The house is located 10+ mins south of Ojochal. There are 2 variety stores, a restaurant and an excellent meat market in Coronada where you turn off to take the 8 minute steep, scenic drive to the house. Our grocery shopping was mostly done at the BM supermarkets in Uvita about 20 mins north but discovered we could drive same distance south to the Palmar Norte BM supermarket; prices and selection were a bit better. I suggest buying duty free liquor/wine at the SJO airport as prices are cheaper. Most of our fruits and veg were bought at the Saturday market in Uvita or at roadside stands. The house has a charcoal BBQ with a neat gimmick to get the charcoal going. Try the smoked pork chops (chuletas de cerdo ahumadas) from the Carniceria (butcher shop in Coronada); their meat is excellent, their English is not! Restaurants we enjoyed were the Boca Coronada and the Tilapia Farm (2nd one) on the way to Ojochal as well as Exotica, Citrus, Mama y Papas, Ylang Ylang, all excellent choices in Ojochal. Fabrizio's has fabulous pizza and pasta (the gnocchi was delish)-small seating area but they offer take-out. If going to Dominical, try Por-Que-No restaurant then check out their small beach. Our days started at 5:30 to in order catch the best of the bird and wildlife action. The Mono Titi monkeys were frequent visitors in the large trees; watch for branch movement as they can be hard to spot. That's what we loved most about "living" here, every day provided a new amazing nature experience. Remember you are in the jungle so expect surprises! The Corcovada day trip was excellent; be sure to take backpack with water, snack, binoculars, camera and water shoes (not flip flops) as you get on/off the boat in the water. Expect 4 hours of hiking in the jungle; you will need closed walking shoes or, if has been very wet, boots would be best. The Osa Ziplining was OK (Arenal ziplining is better); not sure their rope bridge is safe! The house has well-stocked kitchen, A/C in bdrms, lots of dvds, books and bird guides, many comfy and shaded outdoor seating choices and a refreshing pool w outdoor shower. Denise, the property manager and David, our pool guy were wonderful. We learned so much from both of them, which made our stay here an experience we will never forget. Thank you Karen and Mario for sharing your lovely casa!"

  • Beautiful Condo!

    "We very much enjoyed staying at Monaco Condos. The owners were very accommodating as we only needed to stay for one night. Most VRBO's have a minimum stay of three or more nights and we were leaving on a flight the next day. The only down side was the noise at night but it is the town of Jaco and it is a party town so if you come to party, you're in the right spot! The condo was very beautiful and modern. Water pressure in the showers not so good and water temp. fluctuates quite a bit but other than that, a perfect place to stay!"

  • AMAZING EXPERIENCE!

    "I have been to Cabo Matapalo 6 times and have stayed at many lovely places, but Casa Osa Marmaris is my favorite! First of all, let me talk about the people. As you know, that can make all the difference. Ximena is so professional, organized, responsive, and helpful with all of the little details as I was hosting a Wellness Adventures Retreat and there were more details than usual. The caretakers, Isaac and Desiree are the absolute best! They welcome you with Costa Rican hospitality and you truly feel taken care of the entire time. Desiree is an amazing chef and prepared the most delicious, healthy, and fresh Costa Rican dishes that we could have ever asked for. I really enjoyed practicing my Spanish as Desiree was also practicing her English. We communicated perfectly and she always had such a warming friendly smile on her face! So, let me try to explain and capture the feeling of the house. Imagine beautiful turquoise blue ocean right in front of you, the sounds of the waves crashing, and since the Casa sits up a little higher, AMAZING ocean breezes and rainforest all around you. Listen to the sounds of scarlet macaws, toucans, and howler monkeys, all while doing Yoga or receiving a therapeutic massage under an open air thatch roof gorgeous house with indigenous hardwood floors. We were up for a spectacular sunrise every morning as we just couldn’t bear to miss it and we were greeted by dolphins a couple of times too! The separate unit concept is brilliant. You can retreat to your own bungalow and have your own space with the same fantastic view, or you can hang out in the main house and lounge in the comfortable furniture. Combine that with the fact that this house is situated right in the middle of one of the most biodiverse places in the world…..paradise! You feel as though you are in a zoo, but you have the privilege of seeing all the animals in their natural habitat. 4 types of monkeys, 3 toed sloths, largest population of scarlet macaws, toucans, hummingbirds, etc. This is where the rainforest comes right up to the ocean, so there will be many times when you are on one of the many deserted beaches, and you will be greeted by scarlet macaws, hawks, and monkeys. It is so stunning that it took a while for the members of my retreat to absorb it all! Experience of a lifetime!!"
