  • Lovely yard and pool

    "We stayed at the property for 4 nights in Jan 2015. The yard and pool are beautiful. The house was as described. We were disappointed that there was no BBQ as advertised. Air conditioning would be a nice addition as the house is quite warm at night. Jenny at Coyote Café was great, she provided much information about the area, she booked a tour for us and also arranged a taxi. She serves delicious watermelon drinks. We ate there one night and the food was good also."

  • Wish I could say that this condo was just as described but............

    "The website and pics cannot prepare you for how beautiful this property is. If I could give it a 10+, I would. Everything imaginable that you would need for a wonderful stay is here. It is tastefully decorated without being overly done, has VERY comfortable bedding, was comfortably spacious and doesn't have a "touristy" feel to it. My travel companion was sick for a couple of days while we were vacationing, and I spent more time in the condo than I normally would, but that was no problem at all. I so enjoyed sitting out on the veranda and enjoying the ocean breeze, the sounds of the waves lapping in, the macaws doing their calls high up in the trees, the beautiful flowers, the hummingbirds..... I could go on and on. To top all this off, the owner, Simone, is an absolute pleasure to work with and provides so many amenities at her property. When she says she offers the special "extras", she really means it. She is a such a nice person and a pleasure to deal with. I will not hesitate to rent this property again next year. Our concierge, Esteban, was simply delightful!!!! It was our distinct pleasure to get to know him and also Luis. They went far and beyond what could ever be expected of them. They are truly wonderful people who you can trust to give you good recommendations and advice on anything Costa Rica! A special thank you to each of them for giving us the unique experience of watching a soccer match... Costa Rican style!!! We felt right at home and were cheering right along. The enthusiasm was contagious as we almost felt like locals while we celebrated the CR victory in the streets. ;o) We also very much enjoyed Marjorie who prepared us an authentic Costa Rican breakfast each morning and served it to us out on the veranda early each morning. Her cooking is to die for and she is a kind person who will take very good care of your every need to keep you comfortable! To sum my review up, I guess one may think I have gone overboard with my compliments, but I only give these high reviews because they are most deserved. This place is well worth the rental fee in itself. However, dealing with the kind, wonderful people that are associated with this rental makes it an unique experience that you don't often find. My only regret is leaving after only a week, but then..................there is always next year!!!!!! Thank you Simone and Esteban for making our vacation one to remember! We will see you again for sure!"

  • ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!

    "Went to Costa Rica for the first time and What a trip. Moanco is the perfect location, you can walk anywhere and anything you want while there is just a short distance. The condo was AMAZING, wayyyyyy beyond our expectations. The staff was wonderful, they booked all of our excursions and day trips. I will definitely recommend staying at the Monaco and will be back."

  • Amazing House, Nestled in Nature

    "Our family (myself, my husband, and our 3 children, ages 9-12) recently stayed at Case de e’Smith. There was plenty of room, and privacy, for everyone. The kids enjoyed everything from the Wi-Fi to the pool, while my husband and I enjoyed early morning to late night on the balcony overlooking the forest and all of its wildlife. There was a particular hummingbird that perched just off of the porch. We later discovered that she was nesting in the mango tree beside the deck, and we could watch her keeping her babies warm when she roosted from the master bedroom balcony. In addition to the several types of hummingbirds, we saw scarlet macaws every morning and evening, as well as aracari, cuckoos, and many, many more birds I could not identify. Butterflies where everywhere during the day, and there were huge moths, nighthawks, and bats to watch at night. We assumed that mosquitoes would be a problem, but were pleasantly surprised to not be bothered by them at all—even in the middle of the rainy season. In fact, our entire stay at Casa de e’Smith exceeded our expectations. We really enjoyed all the comforts the inside and outside of the house offered, and while the listing does not show any pictures of the kitchen, it is just as beautiful as the rest of the house, and it (and the dining room and its balcony) has a fantastic view of the forest and the ocean beyond. Ron and Vicky gave us some great advice for negotiating our Costa Rican vacation. Their directions helped us get through the airport and navigate the surprisingly easy drive from the airport to Tarcoles. David helped my husband become oriented with the town, and we were easily able to acquire supplies for our stay. Overall, I cannot emphasize enough how amazing this house was. It was comfortable, secure, and convenient. The view was spectacular, the wildlife and birdsong was amazing, and we cannot wait until our next vacation at Casa de e’Smith."
