"Casa Miramar was the perfect place to kick off our honeymoon! We spent a week there relaxing, recharging and enjoying all of the beautiful sights in the Dominical area.
The house itself is the perfect place to relax, we spent many hours sitting on the deck watching the ocean and enjoying meals and snacks that we prepared using the fully stocked kitchen. A few other things that were great about the place - it was spotlessly cleaned prior to our arrival, the decorations were lovely so we really enjoyed the space and the curtains are nice and dark so you can really block out the early morning light if you want to sleep in (which we did!). The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to prepare meals and there is a washer and dryer for sandy beach towels. The house is set up on a hill which gives you a feeling of total privacy, but it's not so far up the hill that you feel isolated or that it is inconvenient.
There is a really useful house handbook that we referred to in planning our daily activities - the handbook has information from the house owners and reviews from previous guests. There were only 2 of us, but the house would also be great for 4 as there is another very private suite downstairs with a private bathroom.
We spent one night in a local hotel and can say that aside from all the other great points about this house, it is a great value. Super clean, comfortable and equipped with modern amenities at a much lower price than local hotels offering similar amenities. I could go on and on about how wonderful the house is - highly highly recommend this place."

"My husband and I went to Costa Rica for our Honeymoon. We had the pleasure of staying in Casa Escondida for a whole week. I can not say enough wonderful things about this beautiful home. It was exactly as described. We loved how open the house was with all the windows and doors. We stayed here for a week and then decided to travel for another week. I wish we stayed here the whole time instead. We met Ricardo(the caretaker) and spent a lot of time with him. He made our stay such a great experience. He took us to do so many things. We barely understood him and he barely understood us but it didn't matter....we made it work. It was nice to just lay in the hammocks outside with a couple of beers and just watch the Tucans and listen to all the sounds of wildlife all around. My husband and I aren't really in to doing a lot of Touristy stuff and this was the place to just sit back, relax, surf etc.... I highly recommend staying here if you're looking for a home away from home! :)"

"We are a family of 5, with our 3 children now adults (20-23). We wanted to visit Costa Rica over New Years, and Casa Alta was the perfect destination. We were met at the airport in San Jose and were brought directly to Casa Alta in an air conditioned van. We did not need a rental car while staying at Casa Alta, as all of our tours provided transportation and the beach was only a short taxi ride down the hill. We had been in contact with Natalia prior to our visit, and she set up wonderful tours for us that included zip-lining (El Santuario Canopy Adventures - don't go with any other company!), Manuel Antonio Park (saw Howler Monkeys, Squirrel Monkeys, and White Faced Monkeys), and the Damas Mangrove Estuary (a boat tour - amazing - White Faced Monkeys jumped on the roof of our boat and then back into the trees). Casa Alta is spread out over three levels - with wonderful sunset views. The pool was crystal clear and wonderful for cooling off night or day. We ate and played games both at the bar off the kitchen, and on the patio by the pool. There are two markets within a short walking distance, and a larger grocery store in Quepos (the Pali) for a larger variety. During our stay, Natalia was available by phone (there is a phone at Casa Alta), email, and/or text at all times if we ever had any questions or needed anything. This was a dream come true for our whole family to vacation together in Costa Rica, and Casa Alta was the perfect place to stay. Thank you Natalia!"
