A REAL GEM!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a gem. We traveled as 2 families with 1 adult child each; the villa's layout was perfect for our needs and very thoughtfully appointed. The caretakers, Miguel and Maria were on hand to greet us and help us get oriented, they were also available for any of our needs through out the week. A genuine couple who we thoroughly enjoyed getting to know. The building is relatively new, immaculately kept, clean and fresh, in my opinion, much nicer than illustrated in the website. The pool view and sunsets are of the most beautiful I have ever seen. At the bottom of the hill in the little town called Potrero, were several lovely restaurant options. Through the Villa we were introduced to the Costa Rica Sailing Centre, an easy and dependable destination to swim in the ocean and hang out, offering the rental of sailboats, paddleboards, Scuba Diving packages; a yoga studio and full beach bar/restaurant (we dropped in 3 out of 6 days). Ville de Oro, and our holiday to Costa Rica exceeded my expectations. Rita from the Concierge service mentioned the EXIT TAX at the airport is now included in our plane ticket; however, and unexpected surprise - since we flew West Jet from Toronto - we did have to pay the $29/head fee at the airport.

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for your nice review. We are so thrilled you enjoyed the house. Miguel and Maria work hard to maintain the home and pool so everything is always clean and tidy which is really important to our family too. The memories of those sunsets over the pool keep us going when my husband and I are at our offices looking at snow through our windows! The Costa Rica Sailing Centre is new, run by two great guys and we are grateful to them they allow our guests to use our club membership. Now we have easy access to the kayaks, sailboats, etc (not to mention the beach bar) because they are there when we want to use them and they are very inexpensive to rent as members-an added bonus. So, we are thrilled to give our guests the beach experience complete with water toys. And I love their $10 yoga and pilates classes-up to 16 a week at last count. It is a lovely country and we hope you return because there is so much to explore!

Amazing view is the best part of this property! The surroundings are lush and the ocean is stunning

  • 5 of 5

Villa Oasis is truly an oasis! The view is incredible! It is not remote yet you feel secluded and private. When you arrive you will be greeted by the property manager and the caretakers. Miguel and Maria live on the property and they are there for you if you need them. They are non-intrusive but will respond to any need or question you have. Miguel speaks English and he enjoys conversation and sharing knowledge. Maria did one in-house massage and she did a great job! The house is spacious and clean. The main advantage of this house is the view. The pool is nice and Miguel cleaned it every day.

Things to know beforehand but you will learn very quickly. When they offer you groceries already in the house upon arrival, do it! Our flights were delayed causing later than expected arrivals. We stopped for groceries but had very little space in the van. We ended up with no food that night and it was not enjoyable. Have groceries there and definitely rent a car for unexpected needs and excursions. The house is WAY UP a hill and it is not a quick ride to the store.10 minutes up or down due to the condition of the road but you will get the hang of it and it adds to the adventure. The views and the house is well worth the road situation!

The house was hot when we arrived but be patient it will cool down. One unit was not working in a bedroom and Miguel had it fixed immediately.

The grocery stores have the freshest food but we found it was better to shop in a little more "Americanized" stores. Do not buy things in boxes = stale. Buy things in bags such as cereal etc. Their prices are very comparable to American prices except for gas, about $4/gallon.

Be careful when you buy at souvenir stores, they will tell you one price when shopping in store but hike it a few $ at the register. But, mostly, everyone was fair and courteous.

Do the Playa Flamingo Beach and Coco Loco's for food. Amazing! Do the beach massage!

The Monkey Canopy Zipline with Andre and friend, wonderful! Not too extreme!

Sail with the Lazy Lizard crew! If you do the Arenal Volcano, do a guided tour. Do local cuisine! Ignore the rain!!!

Roxanna, the concierge, was very helpful but responded quicker to phone calls than emails.

The CR people are very friendly and they all want a tip, so have cash. They earn it though! Most places accept American money and credit cards, but learn the conversion.

This was an unforgettable vacation and I give 5 stars!

Dazzlingly beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

If I ever write a review it is done a way after coming home, looking back at the pictures we took and give my opinion from a distance so it is most accurate. We traveled with 2 teenagers and it was suppose to be a luxury treat for all of us for different reasons. My daughter wanted to ride horses through the beautiful beaches freely with no helmet on, and wind in her hair...My son wanted to experience the nature, climbing forest and discovering new paths... My husband needed simply to rest -enjoying his rum in coconut "smoothie", and I really wanted to do nothing except reading a book. We did it all! Having the luxury and comfort of this huge villa we could spend time together enjoying our each and own schedule and making the best of the stay. Since we stayed over a week, I soon discovered that local grocery stores are very well stocked and it came very handy to have full fridge just in case of these evenings cravings for a snack or an ice cream . We did go out few times, and I have to say people are super friendly and helpful. You just find, they are sincerely interested in you as a person not your tip. The villa IS more than the pictures show and we were thrilled by decor, space, good taste and perfect location. Far away from any traffic to enjoy peace, and close enough to the beech and local entertainment. The views from the Oasis are astonishing and it makes it hard to leave even to dine out. All of us enjoyed the feeling of being disconnected from the world when connected through the wi-fi if needed. This was a big plus since 4 of us could use our own devices especially teenagers who do need internet even in a rain forset:-). Maria & Miquel were simply there if needed and it was comforting to know that someone is there for you 24/7 . We traveled from US and even though we do not speak Spanish it was great to be able to talk to Miguel about Costa Rica, what to see, economy, school system and even cooking:-). It was very touching to see that they both came to say goodbye when we were leaving at 3am in the morning! Like a family! I also found Rita being very helpful and it was great to be able to send an email with a question and have an answer within 15 minutes! As the time passes we do miss the Villa more and more. I refer to it as a "Dynasty" destination. If you ever watched this TV series you can feel like it again. In person. You just have to book this villa and experience this paradise for a week or two- as you desire. Go for it! Anja

Owner's Response: Thank you Anna for your outstanding review ! And your referral to the old "Dynasty" television series fits the Villa to a tee...right down to the luxurious staircase. Happy to know that the property offered you the peace and tranquility you sought with access to all the necessary conveniences. Miguel and Maria are the "cherries" on top of the delicacy. Please come back again and experience more of our beautiful country.

Una estancia de maravilla

  • 5 of 5

Al principio nos íbamos para 3 noches. ¡Al final, nos quedamos 6!!!

Gracias a Roxana por su ayuda por la reservacion. Y gracias a Miguel y Maria por toda la ayuda en la casa. Ellos son presentes todo el día, pero con mucha discreción. Cualquier duda que uno puede tener, están para ayudarle. Hasta, las ranas que intento quitarnos…. La casa es grande y cada uno tiene su espacio. Las fotos reflejan la verdad.

Sin duda, volveremos.

Awesome views

  • 4 of 5

Great views, excellent house. We had a great stay here just outside Playa Flamingo. This is an excellent house to relax and soak up the sunshine. Rental company was easy to deal with and the house manager was very friendly. The only minor downsides were the long bumpy unpaved road to the house, the hot tub is not hot at all, and the dust from the road as it runs right beside the pool deck. Overall, I would it the house I big thumbs up.

Owner's Response: Glad to know that you enjoyed the Villa, Jason. As for the "hot tub"... very seldom will you find a heated jacuzzi tub here in Costa Rica. Sorry if there was a misunderstanding on this amenity, as we do not have it listed as hot tub - but only "jacuzzie". And , as for the road, unfortunately, not within our control, But you have to agree the "pay off" is worth it !! We appreciate your input and thank you for taking the time to write.

Truly an Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We were at Villa Oasis for two weeks just last month. This was by far one of the best rentals we have ever stayed in. We live in Alaska, and Costa Rica has been on our bucket list for years. I have searched many hours on the internet and consistently came back to Tropical Homes of Costa Rica’s site. After I enticed other family members and close family friends to join us we selected Villa Oasis in Potrero. We were not disappointed. The house was exactly as depicted on the web site. After using the virtual tour ,(over and over) we felt like we had already been there. The rental process was made easy by Rita and the staff. All transactions were completely done over the web site and question were answered promptly . Once we arrived we were escorted to the house and given the tour. The rooms were great, the kitchen was more than adequate, but the pool and upper balcony were consistently the place to be. The sunsets were awesome. The location was central to everything we wanted to do. The nearby beaches were the stuff movies are made of. We cannot say enough about the entire experience.

If there were more than 5 stars , Tropical homes would get all of them.

One note that we would like to make, is that the on site couple, Miguel and Maria , are now part of our extended family. They are friendly, professional and always happy. We got to know them during our stay and cannot say enough about how they enhanced our experience.

Thank You so much for exceeding our expectations.

Yes, Britta and her staff is a real treasure to have and we are very grateful for that. Maria and Miquel add to beautiful happiness and peace of mind we share. Thank you for taking time writing this review - you are always welcome back - now you are like family to us as well. Wishing you all the best! Eva & Jan
