New Years vacation
"The house was very comfortable, and had everything we could have needed. It was very private, and yet not too far from anything. We enjoyed a day at the Dungeness Spit, and the weather was perfect for the hike out to the lighthouse. Mt. Adams was gorgeous!"

"Our family had a fabulous stay at this beautiful, warm home. We had a wonderful kitchen in which to cook along with a great barbecue on a huge balcony overlooking the lake. All the rooms were beautifully decorated with the softest, plushest sheets I have ever slept in. The kids loved the game room with all the great games. We went out on the kayak which was so peaceful. We rented a ski boat and pontoon and loved the private dock where we could dock the boat to change passengers. We were sad to leave, but look forward to coming back next year. We thank the owners so much for sharing their beautiful home with us."

"Our family enjoyed every moment at this home. The home inside and out is immaculate and absolutely wonderful. Plenty of room for everyone and a perfect location. You will enjoy the water views of Little Bay and watching the boats cruise along day and night. Kayak from the deck and go fishing!! Everything inside the home is first class and furnished with anything you will need to make this a perfect vacation. The furnishings make you feel right at home. Open kitchen and dining is great for large gatherings to enjoy each others' company. We would definitely rent this home again."

"Our family of 7 thoroughly enjoyed the week over New Year's in paradise! The house was large,very comfortable and kept spotless. The yard and pool area were spectacular and kept in immaculate shape. Sara and Nando were great hosts, readily available and more than willing to answer our multiple questions. Sara was instrumental in coordinating transport to and from San Jose though Junior Palmer - who we would highly recommend. She also suggested a day tour with Junior which was educational, challenging and loads of fun. Sara also organized a cook for us to prepare breakfast and dinner each day. Sherry was informative, helpful, fun as well as a great and, very accommodating, chef! She is also a talented "Dirty MInds" player!!
Casa del Mango is minutes to the beach, bars, restaurants and the Calhuita National Park. Although we did a couple of tours, visited the beach and the town our fondest memories of our visit was the time spent at the house - by the pool checking out the howler monkeys, iguana, sloths, birds and frogs from the comforts of our lounge chairs and at night on the back porch enjoying a few beverages while playing cards and silly board games.
It was a perfect holiday for all 7 of us with ages ranging from 20 - 50+! Our only complaint...it wasn't long enough!
A couple of things for visitors... The town is quite safe - we all felt very comfortable wondering about. Locals were helpful and pleasant. Make sure you have cash - there is only one bank/atm in Calhuita and it is often out of money. Some places in town charge up to 13% for the use of VISA. Make sure you visit the Tree of Life Rescue Centre, Calhuita National Park, Reggae Bar and Sobre las Olas Restaurant.
Thanks Sara, Nando and Sherry for a wonderful holiday and sharing your little piece of paradise with us for a week! Hopefully, we will be back!"
