  • Unbelievably awesome house in an ideal location!!!

    "I cannot say enough positive things about my experience in this house. This was my SECOND time here, and I honestly can't imagine staying anywhere else in Costa Rica. First off, the house is GORGEOUS and it's so nice to have privacy. The pool is amazing and the rooftop deck is so peaceful - you can even see monkeys in the trees behind the property in the early morning or evening! The rooms are spacious, the kitchen is modern and updated, and the place is very well maintained by the staff at Ecovida, who are some of the nicest people you'll encounter. I also love being able to cook my own food at times, and/or just lounge at night and watch a movie on cable. As far as the location goes, you're 2 blocks from the beach (an easy walk), there's a small grocery store within walking distance, it's a 10 min drive to Esterillos, where you can have drinks on the beach at Hotel Alma. It's a 30 min drive to Jaco, about 45 minutes to Manuel Antonio National Park, which is one of the most beautiful national parks in the world. You honestly can't ask for more, and the owner of the home - Michael - is so accommodating, friendly, and helpful. I would recommend staying here to anyone who asked me!"

  • The Perfect House for the Perfect Vacation

    "My family of five and another family of 3 stayed at Flora's house over a school vacation. It was like a fantasy: the house is so beautiful in an unimaginably special and beautiful place. Dominical is totally unspoiled, not touristy, with beautiful places to discover and lovely people to meet. Our children (ages from 7 - 15) all had a blast - we spent the days in town, ziplining, horseback riding to the waterfalls, at the local beaches, swimming at the hidden waterholes, finding amazing restaurants We ended each afternoon in the pool, watching the spectacular sunsets, and enjoying having a chef come to cook for us. (Best salsa and guacamole ever!) Flora was lovely and so helpful, Kelley, the concierge was great, the chefs were fantastic. All in all it was the perfect vacation -- the perfect combination of adventure, relaxing, exploring. Great family time! We'd love to come back!"

  • Favorite Spot in Costa Rica

    "This was our third trip to Casa Amarilla and I always leave hoping there will be many more to come. This time we only stayed for a week. In the past we'd stayed for a month. I wish we could stay for a year! We absolutely love it here. Pavones is an amazing area that is still sort of a best kept secret. On the drive from SJO to Finca Estrella you pass through the bustling touristy towns of Jaco, Hermosa, and Manuel Antonio where you sometimes see more American's than Ticos. As you drive further south everything becomes a little calmer. The beaches are beautiful. We love Pilon because we are almost always the only people there and it is a short drive down the hill. My husband even made the journey by foot two years ago. I definitely recommend a 4WD vehicle for getting around. Each year that we've stayed we've seen monkeys, toucans, and macaws all from the deck. Nature is all around you here. You see from your bedroom windows what others pay for tour guides to see. And if you don't notice it on your own Freddy is always there to help point things out. I could go on and on about the incredible kindness of the people who work on Finca Estrella for pages and pages. Freddy is the most easy going and helpful person. My children talk about Grace all the time. We were happy to go on an excursion to a waterfall with her husband Enrique who is a phenomenal tour guide. The minute we get home from this place I start looking for flights back."

  • Incredible views!!!!!

    "We stayed with my sister and her family at this amazing house. We truly had the most memorable vacation. Every morning we were greeted by Howler, Squirrel, and white faced monkeys. The view of the ocean was spectacular and we were away from the crowds. The house was spotless everyday because of the housekeeper!!! Terry was always so helpful during the entire process of planning this trip!!! We are planning a trip for this December and while we like to go to different places, we are considering doing the same trip again. Make sure you take a look at the memory book-it is really fun to read about previous travelers experiences and write your own!!!"
