  • Perfect and Unforgettable

    "If you want to experience the natural vibes of Costa Rica without giving up the luxury modern conveniences and without the hassles of a hotel, this is the ideal choice. The two-bedroom, two-bath layout of the Casita was perfect for our family of three, a couple with a college-age son. We visited for 8 days over the Labor Day weekend and didn't want to leave. Mercedes is the perfect host because she respects your privacy but is only an email away if you need anything. She connected us with some unforgettable experiences, and practicalities like best restaurants and where to buy groceries. The wifi works great and there's a welcome book that explains everything about the house and surrounding area. We never turned on the TV because there is so much to do. We went canyoning, zip lining, hiking and rafting. You'll need a 4-wheel drive to go anywhere off the main highway and the road to Casa Namaste is one of the best maintained in the area. But the beauty of this property is that you don't have to go anywhere. We woke up to the sunrise, bird calls and howler monkeys. Afternoon was happy hour by the pool and dinner we prepared in the well-equpped kitchen. Venture down to the bottom of the hill to swim in the natural waterfalls and whirlpools. And did I mention the view? The pictures don't do it justice. We're a family of world travelers who like to "go local" whenever we can. This was one of our all-time best experiences with a rental property. Highly recommended."

  • Family vacations

    "Our family has members that go from 1year and a half to 60 years old and we were all very comfortable at this place,we stayed for 4 days. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare any meal. The rooms are comfortable, big enough, the bathrooms are nice. The Fans and keeping the doors open are enough to get a nice temperature inside. The pool is ok for kids and adults, we got to see toucans every day!!! The only issue we had is that we do not have a 4WD car and it is required to get there! there's no other way to get to the house (that's why the view is lovely from the balcony). But as costaricans , we are used to walk :), so it was not a big deal. I recommend the place, the beach is not crowded at all. Very peacefull."

  • The Ultimate Honeymoon Getaway

    "The Light of Dawn is everything and more of what we had expected. The pictures do not do justice! From the hospitality of Pete and Deborah, to the amazing views of the rainforest, to the absolute delicious and outstanding meals prepared from Edgar (along with his "surprises"), to the sweetness of Clara, and to the mornings of waking up to the howling monkeys, we are already desperately wanting to return. This was the most perfect honeymoon! We were able to have our private tours on the property, two days of excursions where we chose Zip-lining and Horseback riding. Although September is considered a winter month, we certainly lucked out with our tours as they ended up being private with only us two as reservations! Excursions were done in the morning, so upon returning home, we were able to relax to electrifying thunder and lightning storms. For the last two nights of our honeymoon, we chose to stay at the beach. The hotel was a stylish boutique hotel with friendly staff members. The area was nice too as we were able to experience more of the "town" culture of the Manuel Antonio Area. Not was our house stocked with snacks, beverages and goodies, but the same treats came along for our hotel stay at the beach! Pete, Deborah, Edgar and Clara were so wonderful in taking good care of us, we hope they have as great of a memory of us as we do them! xoxo, we hope to see you soon, Kristy and Jim"

  • Amazing place for our family

    "We stayed 4 nights at Casa Pajaro and had an incredible experience with our three young children (7, 4 and 2). The house is gorgeous, spacious enough for a family and beautifully designed - the kitchen and living rooms open up to the outside to give you a truly indoor outdoor feel with wonderful fresh breezes. The pool was awesome and the whole place was very private. The view of the ocean was breathtaking. We had several toucans that visited right off the balcony as well as a family of howler monkeys (along with a baby hanging on it's mother's back). This is the kind of experience you just can't get at a hotel. The dirt road up the mountain was well maintained but I still think a 4 wheel drive is necessary. Also, the owners were wonderful and so incredibly helpful with planning before our trip."
