Beautiful with many limiting factors

  • 3 of 5

The cottage is cozy and the setting tranquil. However, it is located at the top of a steep hill that makes walking to the beach with any chair, umbrella, cooler, or boogie board impossible. The town is stratified, with the rich gringos living on top of the hills and the locals down on the bottom. There is little mixing. Eating out is limited to one place in town.

The beach is beautiful, and there are tide pools to explore. Forget about swimming or frolicking in the waves. Way too rough and dangerous.

Water in the cottage is a problem. No hot water in the kitchen and bathroom sinks. The shower is either scalding or cold. The drains are sluggish at best.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. It was a pleasure having both of you stay at Villa Cielo. I had a great time getting to know you and hope that you will be able to find your perfect retirement home here in Costa Rica. I’d like to address that Esterillos Oeste is a beautiful little fishing and surfing village that is quiet and peaceful with a good mix of expatriates and locals. I am sorry you felt that our town was stratified, however, I’ve never seen anything but integration and as a gringa have never felt more at home and welcomed by my friends (Costa Ricans and gringos). Mermaid View Villas is located at the top of a hill about a 5 minute walk to the beach and into town. Having a vehicle is not necessary but it is recommended. It is somewhat of a workout to walk up and down the hill hauling beach things but I wouldn’t say impossible. It is the height of the low season now and sadly there are not as many open businesses as there are throughout the year, however, most prices are much lower for things during these two months. (Right now we have five bar/restaurants open that serve food and beverage all within walking distance to the villa). It is so unfortunate that you did not get to enjoy swimming or frolicking in the waves as it’s one of my favorite things to do here, this is dependent on swell and tide. I sincerely apologize the water in the villa was temperamental during your stay. Sometimes it does take a little while for the water to get hot as it works with an on demand water heating system. Rest assured we have replaced the unit with a brand new one.

Kick Back Comfort

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at Villa Cielo. Keeley & Des were delightful & always ready for a

suggestion or chat. We were delighted to meet Brenda & Pratt. they made us feel like part

of the family. Our bungalow was nice and suited the beach vibe of the whole town. Very glad we stayed here.

Thanks for the delightful stay.

Perfect Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 days, and could not have been happier. The cottage is charming and quaint as is the seaside town. Good security, plumbing, air conditioning and wifi are provided. The cottage is accurately depicted..everything is adorable about it, even the postage stamp sized pool, the owners and caretakers are very friendly and helpful, and our teenage girls were thrilled when the little yorkies visited daily. We rented a car, so we drove to the beach and all over the area. At low tide you can hike out to the mermaid, and if you walk to the right of the mermaid (as Brenda recommended to us) you will encounter completely undeveloped beach, and lots of nature. Although we did not spot any monkeys there, we went to Manuel Antonio one day and there are LOADS of monkeys there on the beach. We highly recommend Karen's restaurant (ask Kealy the name)...we ate there 2 nights and still think it was our favorite restaurant of our trip. There is also a place called Rainmaker where you can hike through the rainforest and across suspension bridges to a's well worth checking out. We will definitely be back and hopefully can bring friends and get the big house! Thank you Kealy and Brenda!

Beautiful place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Overall experience was good, friendly caretakers on property who were more than willing to help out and offer suggestions of places to go and so forth. Home was very comfortable and roomy

My only suggestion to owners would be to update the old TV , remote and DVD player was in a huge pile of a mess in cabinet underneath TV too, not sure if they even worked. Plus no dryer , which is hard to wash clothes, only hang dry

Our One Week Escape!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our one week stay here; close to a secluded beach, local shop and restaurant. The hosts in the yellow house were amazing and friendly and very accommodating to some of the shortfalls of our stay (which is the only reason why we couldn't 5 star our visit.) The guests who stayed in the blue house immediately before us, really left the home in poor condition and left way behind schedule without any time for the hosts to do a proper review to see all of the items missing and/or damaged (like the hammock they broke.) However, everything worked in regards to super cold AC, electronics, WiFi, plumbing, nice shower, etc. Plenty of room for 3 of us to stay comfortably. Nice to have a super private little pool and a dining table outside where we ate breakfast and listened to the birds.

Gorgeous property! Views and private atmosphere are incredible!

  • 5 of 5

Very close proximity to Jaco which is a very culturally rich coastal town. The people are very friendly and welcome visitors. The property itself is located on top of a hill with great panoramic views! Desarae and Keeley are an awesome couple who maintain the property and will make your stay as comfortable as can be... They keep the property very clean and comfortable! I will be going back for sure!
