  • Another Fantastic Stay at Cima Estelar!

    "This was our fourth visit to Cima Estelar and can't wait to return for our fifth! The property is beautiful and relaxing. Skeeter is a perfect host and is very accommodating. Its location is not far from the beach, the airport, or the volcano, making it a perfect home base for all of your sightseeing. If you're looking for adventure or relaxation or a combination of both, we highly recommend this as the best place to stay in Costa Rica."

  • On a scale of 1 to 5, this place is easily a 10.

    "Recently, my wife and I hosted a dozen family and friends as we renewed our wedding vows. Having never used VRBO before, it was very easy to add Casa Primo to my list of things to be nervous about(wedding, Mass, meeting all my wifes relatives etc.). We went a day early to check out our rental and, hopefully, calm our nerves a bit.. From the moment that our hostess, Fatima, opened the door, we were transported into a wonderful, relaxing, and almost magical world. The bedrooms are large enough to be called suites, are elegantly decorated and the living area was large enough for us to hang out together as a group. The house was clean as a pin as were the pool and Jacuzzi. Fatima, an angel living on earth, prepared a delightful hot breakfast for us every morning and sent us on our way with a big smile and welcomed us home at night with the same. The owners of the home communicated with us on a regular basis and did every thing to accommodate our every need including help us book a tee time at the Cariari Country Club. Our stay at Casa Primo provided the perfect home base for a special occasion that we will all cherish forever. Sending our best regards to Elizabeth, Keith and Fatima for all you did for us."

  • Excellent accomodations in Santa Ana

    "The home is excellent! like a home away from home. 7 adults (3 couples and my son) thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return! I highly recommend this home! Its very close to Town yet in a very quiet neighborhood. A vehicle is necessary, however a local bus stop is about a 15 minute walk Away. Again the house is excellent, you will love it. Thank you Susan and Diego!"

  • Just as described

    "I stayed at this Condo with my younger kids and my grandkids. They had a ball, the pool was wonderful and so was the play ground, they even had a see-saw haven't seen one of those in years. The owner was very attentive to power needs, everything we needed was provided, it was home away from home."
