  • Idyllic Spot for Family Vacation

    "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."

  • Perfect!

    "Our week in this jungle bungalow was exactly what we needed and wanted. The bungalow itself is well thought out and very comfortable. The location is heaven, nestled in the jungle, with a spectacular view, the feeling of seclusion and yet close to people (and civilization). We loved the jungle sounds! The owners are wonderful and quite helpful. There is plenty to do in the Uvita area, but quite honestly, you would have a wonderful vacation if you never left the deck."

  • Perfect!

    "Marcia was amazingly in touch and communicative to sooth any worries or any doubts we ever might have had. Such a peaceful place that truly showed their love of Costa Rica through the wale tale towel holders to the books on the shelves. Thank you, you provided an amazing space for us that we will never forget!"

  • Luxurious stay with magical views

    "The house is luxurious and beautiful. We enjoyed our stay tremendously. The mountain and ocean view is breathtaking. Perfect for relaxing after our very adventurous days of hiking, snorkeling, riding ATV's, jumping from waterfalls, visiting the beach... Loved the lap pool! The boys were happy with the DVD collection. Watching movies was a nice way to end our days. Alex, the concierge, was great. He set us up on the best snorkeling excursion ever! Much more than snorkeling. We also visited two private jungle islands with wild macaws and anteaters and saw crocs and monkeys on the river portion of the tour. Although a bit nervous about mountain driving I felt comfortable on the paved roads and the drive leading up to the house. Our family had the time of our lives!"
