Heavenly. Beautiful. Breathtaking. Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several different villas in Costa Rica, and The Palms was one of the most spectacular we have seen! I thought I was on an episode of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous - it was that fabulous! The open spaces and the breathtaking view of Playa Hermosa could not be outdone. The kitchen has EVERYTHING you could want, and the view from the master suite was enchanting. It is well kept, clean, and the pool was perfect! Milagro concierge services were well appreciated. They arranged tours, a private chef (Eric) and even had a doctor sent to the house when one of us needed medical attention. Eric the chef set the bar so high that I fear all other chefs will pale in comparison to his cooking skills, serving, cleaning and presentation. Perfect descriptions of each course. And it wouldn't be a good review without mentioning how much we loved the monkeys! We will most definitely return to the Palms.

Wonderful home and country

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time together as a family. Very large home. Lots of space to be alone or gather as a group. Pool area and view from home was amazing! The staff is very helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend for families, a couples trip or just as a couple.

This is the nicest place any of us had ever stayed at!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Palms! The pictures online truly do not do the place justice. The house is a palace, the pool is absolute serenity and the view is to die for. They think of every amenity, the beds are very comfortable and you really feel like you are staying in the lap of luxury. We especially liked seeing the iguana which lives in the roof of the cabana and our daily visits from a coati. A family of monkeys going through the trees on our last day was icing on the cake.

Stunning Views on the hill

  • 5 of 5

House and property was amazing! We can’t complain about anything. Plenty of room for two families (9), HUGE kitchen, bedrooms are perfect, AC in all rooms, WiFi worked great with many people on it at once. Visits daily from howler monkies, magpie-Jay birds, and even a Costa Rica raccoon sitting on the endge of our pool! Couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay.

Thank you Martha for sharing your beautiful house! It was perfect for our group of 13. The views from the house were spectacular and the house has everything that you need for a

very comfortable stay! Truly, one of the best houses we have stayed in through VRBO! Frazier, the concierge was very helpful checking us in and promptly answering any questions or concerns that we had. Would definitely recommend staying here. We hope to be back some day!

Thanks , Debbie (St . Louis)

Drop dead gorgeous views!!! WOW!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Martha for the use of your incredible vacation home. From the moment we walked through the front door we felt like we were living the lifestyle of the rich and famous! The high end finishes and gourmet kitchen were wonderful but best of all were the views and the pool area. We spent a lot of time outside watching the monkeys in the nearby trees and the iguana that loved to watch us from the rancho roof. The concierge Frazier was very helpful in getting us familiar with the property as well as setting up some excursions for us. We would absolutely stay here again. My teenagers are already begging to return next year! Thanks again for an amazing vacation :)
