The views were to die for!! I have absolutely nothing bad to say about Casa Cristal. 13 of us stayed and had an awesome time celebrating my birthday. Zeida, her husband, chef, transporter and maid were all welcoming. Definitely will be back soon! Thank you Zeida for your hospitality ❤️

Casa Cristal is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G

  • 5 of 5

Me and my buddies stayed in this Mansion for 3 nights and we absolutely loved it. Pictures do not do any justice and the hospitality from Victor and Zeida was amazing. They really know their job very well. They arranged for our transportation during our stay , starting from picking up from Airport and dropping us back. Our drive Abner was very friendly, spoke good English, understood our needs very well and delivered. The property was clean with stunning views. I would recommend this property to others.. And, yes given a chance I will go back again and again.. Thank you Zeida, Victor and Abner for making our trip memorable.

Absolutely amazing! Pictures don't do it justice.

  • 5 of 5

I loooved the property. It's absolutely beautiful and the pics do it no justice. The dining and living room area by the pool was everybody's favorite place to hang out and take pictures. It's beautiful!! I stayed there with 26 other people for 4 nights and had nothing but positive feedback from everyone. Zeida and Victor were very accommodating and fixed any issues quickly and went above and beyond for us. We also arranged for transportation through Zeida and it made our trip so much better. We had an AMAZING driver by the name of Oscar who everyone loved and fought to be in his van. He recommended restaurants and local spots for our down time and he was so sweet and accommodating. He's definitely an asset to Zeida's team. Thank you Zeida, Victor and of course Oscar for making our trip amazing!

Costa Rica Casa Cristal Luxury Home Scores Big Points!

  • 5 of 5

The folks who said, " only get one chance to make a good first impression" definitely had Casa Cristal in mind when it comes to vacation homes in Costa Rica. The house was immaculate! Every detail of the home displayed on the listing was spot on. It was very spacious, modern, well kept and clean. If any questions arouse during our stay the owners went above and beyond and responded within minutes not hours. My friends and I typically travel to a different country each year for our annual vacation and it was unanimous that Casa Cristal was the best value of all our trips hands down. Awesome job Victor and Zeida!

Owner's Response: It is a wonderful feeling when our guests evaluate our work. Not a single suggestion is ever ignored, and what we would personally expect when we go on vacation is what we offer for our guests. Meeting our guests' expectations is our main goal. When we receive such a great review from one of our guests, we know we are going in the right direction. We really appreciate our guests and are thankful that out of the many vacation rentals and hotels available to them, they have chosen to stay with us. Many thanks again Keith, and please come back and stay with us again!

Very simple, because it is a crystal mansion! Panoramic windows, glass floors and stairs, honor the chosen name: 'Casa Cristal'.
