  • Phenomenal Vacation at a spectacular location

    "We were a family of 8 travelling from Canada... 4 daughters aged 12 to 23, son-in-law and boyfriend, plus my wife and I. Everything about the trip was fantastic. The listing was not accurate....because the pictures don't do it justice! Unbelievable size, layout, comfort, etc. and what a view. The monkeys came by most days and the weather was perfect. Absolutely perfect. We were very comfortable with 8 people ...and there was room for more. Alex is excellent in his organizing of all our activities. We tried the horse back riding, repelling, national park tour and catamaran sail. All highly recommended. He organizes for pick up and drop off at the front door. Local restaurants were excellent too. Although cab drivers told us the walk to the beach was either "too long or too dangerous (due to traffic)", we walked it every day without problem. It was a great way to get some exercise after spending a day at the beach. Another thing Alex did was organize an on-site meal provided by a local chef (Kukula?). It was one of the best meals we have ever had, and we do a lot of travelling. We didn't rent a car, as the local grocery store was within walking distance, as were the restaurants, and we didn't mind the 20 minute walk to the beach. We flew to San Jose, and Alex organized the 2 1/2 trip for pick up and drop off at the end of the stay. The house was cleaned every day (we didn't realize that), and there are laundry facilities on site. We definitely over-packed. This is a flip flop and short/swim suit vacation. We didn't need to wear a sweater at any time during our stay. We will go back and I recommend this for families, couples, etc. The only caution I would have is for those with small children. The building code is no where near the restrictions that we have in Canada, and as such, the area around the main floor, infinity pool and stairs may be a safety hazard for small children. For adults, it adds to the beauty of this spectacular place! A+++++ and a 12 on a 1-10 scale. Truly spectatular."

  • Great house!

    "My family and I stayed at this house for 3 nights and we had a wonderful time. The house is cozy; it is equipped with everything you need and is very comfortable for large groups. This was my baby’s first trip to the beach and this house really helped my husband and me to make him feel at home. The house has a terrace perfect for reading, relaxing or even taking a nap; surrounded by nature and with a stunning 180° ocean view. I would definitely love to come back."

  • Toucans, Hummers, Howlers, Oh My!

    "Absolutely everything that the other reviewers said are true. We went during the rainy season, but it did NOT put a damper on our fun. The sun came out enough to offset the rain, and to watch the storms come in was part of the beauty. The house is exquisitely positioned to take in the views from the infinity pool looking out to the Pacific. We were lucky enough to have howler monkeys visit us on our last day, not to mention daily toucans, hummingbirds, frogs in the evening (looking for Frank), yellow birds, tanagers, and the list goes on. We loved spending the day exploring knowing that we had a paradise home to return to everyday. Be sure to hire Presedente and Vicky to prepare a meal for you. They are excellent! We also did the zip line, waterfalls, national parks (Haciende Baru close by and has a wonderful butterfly garden, just to mention one of its many features) Be sure to have at least a breakfast if not a dinner at Por Que No? Oh, the food was excellent and the view, magnificent. I cannot say enough good things about this place. We miss it so much since we've returned home to temperatures in the 20s! (You may have daily visitors of a few dogs. They are friendly and have extremely good manners)"

  • Tranquil paradise!

    "Incredible views, abundant flowers, comfortable, private oasis! We stayed for two weeks in this wonderful home. The property managers were extremely friendly and helpful. I cannot imagine a more perfect, romantic get-away than Villa Helena. Thank you so much!!"
