Quepos fishing

Stayed 3 nights in April. We wanted a nice place to stay during our fishing trip to Quepos. This property was perfect. Itza was very helpful with all of our needs.

Beautiful secluded home

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 6 women stayed here for a week and it is a beautiful home. Itza is the best hostess and was able to set up 3 tours for us since she knows of the best tour companies. Itza showed us around Quepos and even took us to the local farmers market. She is the warmest and friendliest owner possible. We all enjoyed her massages since she is one of the top massage therapist in the area. I would definitely recommend staying here to all.

Couldn't ask for more

  • 5 of 5

I recently returned from Itza's home spent a week with 5 other women. This being our first trip to Costa Rica none of us really knew what to expect. However, we did not have to look far for ideas, answers, help etc. Itza is awesome, she will arrange any attraction, transportation in a day's notice. She was more than helpful with anything we needed. And, her house is gorgeous, beautiful stone and tile work everywhere! The house is situated in a neighborhood, within walking distance to grocery and buses for venturing out of town. There are also several restaurants within walking distance. We did not have a car and found that to be no issue in the least. The monkeys came to visit almost daily! Lastly, Itza has a spa she is a massage therapist , we all had massages, and we all consider they were the best ever!

Wonderful house in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

All of the descriptions and positive reviews of this home and of Itza herself are absolutely true. There is not a better place to stay in Manuel Antonio. Everything you need is a short walk away and Itza is wonderful at arranging activities. The home is fantastic with a very refreshing swimming pool, and is setup to host multiple couples with lots of privacy. Enjoy your stay at Casa Itza!

Fabulous Home, Wonderful Hostess

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Itza's place from 6/13/13-6/22/13. I looked at every house on VRBO in the Manuel Antonio area for several months and kept coming back to this one. I’m so glad we made the decision to stay here.

As we were carrying our bags into the house, Itza appeared on the front porch steps. She showed us a few things and left us to settle in after our long day of traveling. For the remainder of the trip, as she lives on the first floor of the home (with a separate entrance), she was available if we needed her, but we definitely had plenty of privacy.

I found all of the details of the home, in the description above, to be very accurate. The A/C in the bedrooms is more than adequate and the huge sliding glass doors on the main floor kept the house cool during the day.

We wanted to go fishing so Itza made a quick phone call and got us booked for a half day, in-shore. Marlin, our boat captain, picked us up and dropped us back off at the house afterwards, which was nice. She also booked us an afternoon tour on the Ocean King catamaran and saved us $10 per person, which I highly recommend. Her restaurant suggestions were ones that we probably wouldn’t have visited otherwise and they were delicious.

Gary cleaned the pool early every morning and Martha cleaned the house every other day. They are both very quiet and very good at their jobs.

We got massages from Itza and her daughter Abby and they were wonderful. Both of us walked out feeling like a million dollars! It’s definitely well worth the time and money.

As others have mentioned, the house is nestled in the back of a local neighborhood. We walked back and forth from the main road every day and felt right at home. When we didn’t feel like walking, we’d simply call a taxi and they all seem to know where Itza’s place is.

We saw white faced monkeys everyday, howler monkeys one day and a sloth two days. Various species of birds fly around the backyard all day so there's always outdoor entertainment.

As much as we loved relaxing on the patio or by the pool with a cup of coffee or a cocktail, I just as much enjoyed the time we spent talking to Itza. She’s such a gracious hostess. She works hard, she’s very honest and is proud of her home. I highly recommend this home as a getaway for a couple or family. It feels more like you’re visiting a relative than just another vacation rental.

I'd like to thank Itza and Abby for making our week in Costa Rica so spectacular!

Luxury Home in REAL Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

As others have said, the pics are accurate. So are the animals, and so is the "setting." While each visitor deserves his/her own opinion, anyone who was not enchanted by this property or its setting really doesn't belong anywhere but in a resort or a hotel room.

Itza is everything you could expect in a hostess/concierge. She was at our disposal all day and all night, doing what we asked of her without being "underfoot." If you asked her to come an hang out with you for a few hours a day, she'd probably do that, too.

Considering the openness of the main floor, the proximity of sand and jungle, the home was clean and appropriate. It is beautifully-decorated and very comfortable. A home this large in a country like Costa Rica is a leap-of-faith in itself. The environment is hard on appliances and services, and in the few respects that we were affected, Itza (and the people who work with her) resolved our concerns immediately or made sure we were accomodated. All things considered, what more could you ask of a hostess/owner?

Itza did her very best for us regardless of our wishes, and made every effort to see that our needs were always met. Her recommendations (side trips, etc.) were fantastic (go sailing for a morning or a day--you'll love it). Her advice regarding "where" to buy grocies was great. She'd have done more for us if we'd have asked.

The home is a bit off the beaten path but, if you're going to the trouble of getting deep into Costa Rica, why not see some "reality" while you're there? It's no different than staying in a high-end home in the Colorado mountains, as long as you're outside a gated community or a resort; your going to get some "real" with you fairytale vacation. Getting used to the home's location is quite necessary; getting around is something you'll need to get the hang of if you're going to have any fun in this part of the country, and learning your way from the house down to Quepos or the Manuel Antonio beach from the house is a good start.

The home is well-protected and safe. The restaurants were, on the whole, fantastic. There are great souvenir shops in either of the towns below the home's location. The beaches were good, fun and interesting.

More important to us (a party of nine) than a "perfect" house is was the degree to which we were "accomodated," and Itza and her staff were truly perfect in this respect--the first reason I'd go back.

Thank you, Itza, for everything.
