"We just returned from an amazing week. The house was great, Yves was very kind - all good. Utiva was a great little town to do some active fun and then return to this house was a dream! We loved hanging by the pool and the lanai. It was total relaxation. Can't wait to return!"

"We just returned from eight wonderful days at Villa Kristina Maria (VKM) and the beautiful southwest coast of Costa Rica. The house was perfect for our family of four and could easily have accommodated more. The setting, amidst the rain forest, is completely private yet provides spectacular ocean views. The pool provided a daily reprieve after our daily adventures and the decks provided shaded areas for relaxing throughout the day. I have already recommended VKM to friends and look forward to returning in the not too distant future. We would give this house five stars."

"This zen little getaway is perfectly secluded high in the mountainous rainforest. It was so relaxing and romantic to feel like the only two people in the world. The constant buzz of cicadas and cries of birds of prey played the perfect soundtrack for ambient white noise. I can't imagine a better backdrop to recharge one's body, mind and soul than the dramatic sunsets with a 360 view from the mountains to the Pacific. It was so obvious that Paula and Marty care deeply about their guests and their chosen home, down to each exquisite detail and the gracious hospitality we were shown."

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!"
