Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Bryant,

Thank you very much for your follow up email. The trip was fantastic, memorable and we loved Casa Bella Vista entirely. The moment of walking into your home, so well cared for and grand was exquisite for us all. I attend the Parade of Homes each year in Colorado, and I must tell you that I had that same feeling when walking into our "home" for a week and I was delighted. It's everything that was promised, and more.

Nella is a doll. An absolute doll. She took incredible care of us, calling on her own initiative to see how we were doing and if we needed anything, and being responsive and enthusiastic when we called her. She is a gift to any vacationer, a gift to all. We even ran into her at the Auto Mercado in Tamarindo, and it made us feel just a little "local", which we loved.

We went zip lining, surfing, horseback riding (BIG Kudo's to the equestrian center there...they are fantastic!) We went to Jean-Luc's restaurant one night in Flamingo and had a drive there and back not un-similar to a highly graphic video game. This is due to the darkness of the roads, the pedestrian traffic in full regalia in places an American driver might not expect, and of course, the driver. It was white-knuckle for me all the way - but fun and freeing to be in a country that doesn't necessarily have "rules" so much as they have a good nature and fun along the way. Pura Vida, indeed.

It was always nice to come home after our outings. We thoroughly enjoyed Casa Bella Vista, it's dragonfly show and it's butterfly finale's. You are lucky and talented to have such a beautiful home. Thank you so much for sharing it with us and opening up a world of possibilities to each and every one of us.

Best Trip Ever

  • 5 of 5

We went to Costa Rica for my husbands 40th birthday. The plan was to surprise him there with friends from out of provience. From the get go Dave , Bryant and Nella were amazing and all helped me surprise him. When we arrived Casa Bella Vista was more then we could have hoped for the pictures look great but actually being there took our breath away. Nella is incredible and so helpful. I cannot discribe how happy we were with the porperty and the treatment, there is privacy and every amenity you can think of. My husband said the golf course was fantastic and we visited the beach and the beach clubs which were also impecable. We will be back for sure I have travelled extensivly and this is by far the best trip adn accomodations I have ever had. I am usually ready to come home but not this time. We reluctantly left but are already planning on comming again and wouldnt even consider staying anywhere else. This house is prefect for any situation groups, families with kids .... absolute perfection. The detail and thought put into the grounds and the decorating is nothing short of perfection.

Thank you again Nella, Dave and Bryant we cant wait to get back !

Pura Vida

Holly and Chris .... and all our guests :) you helped gave us the trip of a lifetime, my husband was ok with turning 40 and the incredible time we had with friends will not be forgotten.

Perfect house, Loved Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my family. The bedrooms provided privacy for all my family and the open floor plan allowed for everyone to congregate together. The pool is directly off the main living area and was also perfect. The house and grounds are kept so well and pride of ownership is evident in everything. Nella was beyond helpful. The Costa Rican people are so friendly and are so proud of their country. We enjoyed our first time and are certain we will return.

Celebrating three quarters of a century

  • 5 of 5

Our week long celebration of Pappa's seventy fifth birthday was indeed set in the perfect location, Casa Bella Vista. Eight adults (two seniors, 6 middle aged) 3year old twins and a seven year old had a wonderful time. Accommodations and weather were perfect. Nella did an outstanding job of arranging for food, babysitters and anything else that we needed. Oswaldo kept the pool gleaming and the grounds pristine. Maribel and Ginnette kept us fresh and in order. We deep sea fished, learned to surf, horseback rode and zip lined among the trees. We ate at Lola's, the J.W.Mariott, The Beach Club, Cafe Deveena and Baulo's. All were fun and good. We shopped in Tamarindo at the grocery and little shops. It was a great time and Casa Bella was a perfect fit.

From the states of Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia, we thank you.

Family with Teenage and Young Adult Children

  • 5 of 5

Casa Bella Vista is a perfect vacation rental for a family or 3 or 4 couples. The property is beautifully maintained, home and kitchen are well equipped, and the owner even provided beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards and a golf cart should we have wanted one.

The House Manger was available to answer any and all questions and help us make reservations at local attractions!

We would highly recommend the zip lining and golf at Hacienda Pinnilla. A very special home in a beautiful location!

Exceeding Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Our recent visit to Casa Bella Vista exceeded our highest expectations. From Nella arranging trasnpostation for us from the airport to having the home stocked with food and beverages upon our arrival to finding the home more beautiful than all the pictures seen, our vacation started off great. Sometimes pictures do not do things justice.

After a night of great air conditioned sleep, we awoke to the beauftiful countryside at Hacienda Penilla. Everything is lush and green this time of year, total privacy and a real sense we got away from it all. Over the next week and with guidance from Nella we enjoyed zip lining, golf, private beaches, great restaurants, and going to the National Park to find crocodiles, monkeys, and more iguanas than we had ever seen. Lunch after that may have been the best meal of the trip,eating at a local home for some real home cooking.

I recommend stopping at the local produce stands to get fresh produce and cooking at home occasionally, the mangos and bananas you never get tired of eating. The home has everything you could want in a kitchen, and all the furnishings were well maintained as a luxury hotel. Oswald was there every day to keep the yard and pool in perfect shape was as pleasant as one could be in doing it. The golf cart is a must for getting to the beach and if nothing else, for just driving around Hacienda Penilla.

Just relax and enjoy. All the natives make you feel comfortable and while certainly away from it all, nothing is too far away. Any doubts one may have before hand are eliminated by relying on Nella. Not enough can be said about her. Just rely on her to guide you. She is more than your personal Concierge, you look at her as your friend too. We miss her and Casa Bella Vista, a trip we will remember for a long time.
