"Let me start by saying how wonderful Paolo and Sara are. They are the kindest and most attentive rental owners I've ever met. Even on the weekend when office hours are suppose to be closed I will still get a quick response from them. They have been a wealth of knowledge, always forseeing possible problems and offering alternatives, and they are quick to offer suggestions/opinions without coming off as rude. We have thanked our lucky stars that we've taken their advice over many suggestions because it had definitely enhanced our experienced or made things easier for us. They even stopped by to say hi on our last night. Such a cute couple!
With that said, the rental property we stayed in was amazing. The rooms were spacious and clean. Everything was modern and in great shape. I loved that it was on the first floor and a short walk from the front door of the building.The community around this complex is really nice. There's a lake within walking distance, a playground right in front of our unit, and a pool just a quick walk from there. The location was perfect. With a rental car it was a quick 15 min. drive to the main area of San Jose. We have two children under the age of 6 and I much prefer staying outside of the downtown area to avoid all the hustle and bustle. Aside from the sound of the wind (and it got REALLY windy!) we were never disturbed by human noises when we were in our bedrooms. The beds were very comfortable and I loved having a washer/dryer unit in the condo. If we ever returned to the area we will no doubt use Parklands again!"

"Casa Primo was the backdrop for a wonderful stay for our group which included 7 couples. Each room (7 bedrooms) was equipped with a private bath and accommodations exceeded our expectations. Fatima provided excellent care for us on-site during our stay and Lily and Elizabeth were very helpful when making arrangements. One day the water was out in the entire community for 6 hours and arrangements were made, including transportation, to another location for showers. We hosted friends from CR on many days, and the home was spacious enough for gatherings up to 35. The pool, hot tub, and upper level lounge area created the perfect atmosphere to share a glass of wine over conversation. It was a wonderful trip filled with laughter and love and we will most assuredly visit again!"

"Wow. I want to live here for a year. I stayed in the upstairs cottage with a balcony in the canopy of the trees. The birds were singing and flying by in a myriad of colors. Some perched on the balcony railing....magical. the different songs were entrancing. Watching the clouds rise up in the afternoon and fill the valley with thunderous rain and sometimes lightening was exciting. I felt like I was watching the world being created......it was very, very clean and comfortable. It is situated in the mountains of a verdant valley. yes there was wireless internet. The host Skeeter "walks on water". Just go and fall in LOVE with LIFE again."

"If you are looking for true peace and tranquility the unicorn lodge should definitely be your choice! From coffee on the deck with the Savegre river water in the background and tons of birds flying around, to the trails behind the house to beautiful waterfalls and the true peaceful area of San Gerardo de Dota as a town as whole, this place is the best place to escape reality. The house has more than you could imagine from a 4 burner stove, microwave, sink, plates/cups/utensils, coffee maker, cooking supplies, pots and pans and more! The bathroom downstairs is beautiful and being it was just my boyfriend and I, we had plenty of room. However, if you stay here, and you hear loud banging noises in the middle of the night DO NOT BE AFRAID it is just acorns hitting the tin roof!!!! And it isn't bad at all, just a warning! LOVELY place! The wifi worked great too!"
