"Stayed for a week at the casita. Beautiful views of the pacific. ALthough it was about 7-8 min up the mountain from the highway it was well worth it each time we drive back to the cabin. Coming from Florida and being our first time in costa rica it was an experience we will never forget. The area was remote yet close enough to two larger sized grocery stores all within a 10-15 minute drive. The beach, the same distance. I'm already thinking about buying property in uVita. Thanks Kathy Tyler and Ines"

"My husband and I couldn't have been any happier with our choice to secure Villa Mayana for our 1-week family vacation in August ‘14. Not only was it an idyllic spot for a restful yet adventurous week, but we also chose this home for the location of our intimate, family-only wedding. All 15 (11 adults & 4 kids, 2-12) fit very comfortably between both wings of the house and had an unreal week. I'll start by saying we were a bit nervous picking a place we had not seen first for the spot of our wedding, but the photos really do a great job depicting reality-in fact, I don't think they do it justice! We were fortunate to see the property during our 1 planning trip in May and were blown away. We were also a bit nervous about the in-country flights and chose to do 1-way driving and 1-way flying during our initial visit. We think flying to/from Quepos is the way to go!
Ana, the house manager, who also doubled as our wedding planner, was nothing short of amazing. She planned all of our activities from zip-lining to white-water rafting to the hike around the private reserve, in addition to coordinating both a masseuse and a yoga instructor to come to the house. She connected us with Citrus for our rehearsal dinner and Bamboo Taco Truck for a beach day with tacos! She was always available to us-both before and while we were there. Ana was incredibly resourceful and organized when it came to the wedding. Message me if you want a full planning review.
Roberto, the chef, was so accommodating when it came to different diets and food requests. Every meal was delicious! He's got a great personality and we really felt like he was part of the group by the end of the week. Adolfo, Roberto's assistant, was wonderfully hospitable. There is an awesomely oversized wood table, which allowed the entire family to eat together for every meal. This was one of our favorite things about the house.
Nelson, the gardener who doubled as our hiking guide, was so helpful the entire week both around the house in the rare case something needed to be fixed and during the wedding day. He was super patient with us during the hike too! The cleaning staff was on point and always had a friendly smile around.
We echo the prior reviews-this will be a dream vacation. We feel lucky the owner, Rick, built this stunning property and opened it up to us for such an important time in our lives. We would not have changed a thing-it was stress-free and perfect! Happy to be contacted with questions."

Casa Namaste! Romantic and private retreat in lovely San Josecito
"My husband and I live in Dominical, Costa Rica and needed a place for a “stay-cation” when we had an overflow of visiting relatives in our own home. Casa Namaste was absolutely perfect for us – a true home away from home! Mercedes, daughter of the owner, greeted us warmly and then left us to ourselves, but always available if needed. The house is very private and enjoys a beautiful jungle and ocean view. It is beautifully decorated with artful objects from the owner’s extensive travels and cleverly designed to make the maximum use of space. Sliding glass doors and screens disappear into walls to create a gracious, chic and comfortable indoor-outdoor living space focused on the small, lagoon-like pool. The kitchen was well equipped and surprisingly well stocked. We never used the bedroom air conditioners because of the multiple ceiling fans and almost constant breezes passing through. We enjoyed the large flat screen TV and were able to stream Netflix with the fast wi-fi connection. We have stayed in many VRBO properties in Costa Rica and in other countries and feel that our stay in Casa Namaste was one of our best, most comfortable and relaxing ever. Kudo’s to Linn and Mercedes for what they have created and the grace with which they share it with others. We hope to see you again soon!"
