Definitely would come back

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing! Pool was wonderful, everything was very clean. Property is a short drive to the beach. I would highly recommend staying here. Bathrooms could have been bigger would be my only complaint but it really wasn’t that big of a deal for us. Jenny and Alex were very helpful!

Shortest 7 Day Week Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a blast!! George and Isabella have a fantastic villa that is set up for total relaxation or adventure. It's hard to capture in pictures the beauty and setting of this villa. Morning coffee on the patio watching fishing boats, humpback whales, and jumping mobula rays. Days at Carrillo or Samara Beach, two of the best in Costa Rica. Take in the 1 km zip line at Monteverde Cloud Forest. Fish for tuna, mackerel, and mahi mahi in a 25 foot panga. All this done with a lot of help from chef/caretakers Alex and Jenny. They are awesome!! There is nothing like eating sesame tuna with fish from your morning fishing trip. The prepared meals were excellent, on time, and incredible to eat. One of the best times of the day was hanging out in the kitchen and talking with Alex and Jenny, trying to improve my limited Spanish. Evenings were spent in the salt water pool looking up at a million stars. Thanks George, Isabella, Alex and Jenny for an unbelievable week. We will be back.

Villa Amore – a breathtaking experience…

  • 5 of 5

Nick D.

Looking for a place to unplug and unwind over the holiday season our family travelled to Villa Amore in Costa Rica and what we experienced was one of the most beautiful, relaxing trips we have ever been on. From the time we arrived at Villa Amore we were treated by the beautiful flowers and natural beauty of it surroundings, and were greeted daily by Hummingbirds and Parakeets.

Villa Amore is striking ,it is kept impeccably clean and the grounds very well maintained. George and Isabella’s attention to detail at Villa Amore is seen in all of the exquisite finishes and appointed furnishings. This is definitely a luxury retreat.

We opted daily to have Alex and Jenny prepare exceptional dishes for us including breakfast, locally sourced seafood for dinner such as, red snapper, rock lobster, Mahi Mahi and shrimp. As well they served us local fresh fruits, vegetables and delicious Guacamole. We ate overlooking the sunset, ocean and blue sky. The food was fabulous and Alex and Jenny were always pleasant and helpful. We would definitely recommend that you opt to have them prepare meals for you.

The Infinity pool and sunsets are just breathtaking and are even more beautiful than the pictures on the web site. The warm air covered us like a blanket and we swam all day long in the gorgeous pool (the view in the pool felt like we were swimming in the ocean!). The quaint town of Samara is just a short 15 minute drive away with its many restaurants and shops and we went there on a number of occasions.

Beautiful Puerto Carrillo beach is a very short drive away, where we also drank coconut milk, had refreshing shaved flavored ice and ate fresh made ceviche from the locals, while bathing in the warm waters at the beach.

We would highly recommend Villa Amore to couples or families that want to relax and to be pampered in beautiful surroundings. Thank you, we hope to return soon!

Tranquility and Privacy with a Spectacular View

  • 5 of 5

We had the great pleasure of enjoying this home for 9 days over the 2017 holidays. The property is very comfortable with an incredible kitchen and really well appointed outdoor spaces to relax and lounge. The large pool was just the right temperature and refreshing. The house had great wifi and Smart TV options. There were days that we did not leave the property, cooking our own meals on the BBQ and just enjoying the peace and quiet after the incredible sunsets. The silence was occasionally broken by the howler monkeys and colorful birds that came to entertain us. At night you hear the ocean waves on the rocks. What can be better?

The caretakers on site were very gracious and helpful and offered a measure of comfort knowing that they were available to assist in the event of a problem. Jenny also kept the house tidy and clean without being intrusive which was much appreciated.

As with everything in life, though, there were some tradeoffs. Nothing insurmountable, but one should be aware of them. The house is a 15 minute drive from Samara with its restaurants and the market. The road can be a bit challenging at first, but after a day or two it is not a major problem to negotiate. As mentioned by a previous guest, the showers were all undersized for a home of this size and quality. We also arrived to find that no soap or shampoo and other basic amenities were provided. This necessitated an immediate trip to the market in town to stock up. We have stayed in many similar homes and generally have found small "hotel style" toiletries to make it through the first day or so.

Overall we had an exceptional time. You can go zip lining in Samara and we took a snorkel trip that also took us out to find dolphins which was quite an experience. The beach at Carrillo is one of the most beautiful I have seen. It's about 3 km long around a bay and is very quiet and deserted in places. Our family was thrilled with the choice of Villa Amore for our vacation and recommend it for families looking for a peaceful and restful home in Costa Rica.

Our vacation could not have been better. The best part about the house is the caretakers Alex and Jenny. They are amazing and made our vacation easier and more wonderful than it already was. The house was clean, luxurious, well laid out. It had everything that we needed and more. We NEVER felt unsafe. It was as if it was our own home which was important as it was our first vacation as a family of four. We travelled there with our two sons. One just turned 3 and the other is 4.5 months. Comfort and safety were our primary concerns. We will definitely return to this house next year....partly because it is beautiful but mostly because we want to see Alex and Jenny again :)

Over the top, amazing villa.

  • 5 of 5

It would be difficult to say anything more that has not already been said in all of the other reviews. They are spot on. We have stayed in luxury villas all over the Caribbean and this one ranks near the top of any in this price range. The secluded (but not remote) location fits our style perfectly. The house was spotless and the caretakers were attentive but not obtrusive. Alex and Jenny were more than willing to help or answer any questions we had. Their English was basic but completely adequate for communication; much better than our Spanish! The pool was incredible, although we could have used a few square feet of shade at times as it is in full sun from mid-morning until dusk. We worked around that with layers of sunscreen and hats when necessary. The showers are unusually small for a villa of this caliber, and the driveway is a pure bitch to get out of if you pull up to the main door to unload your bags. You must back down the hill part of the way to get turned around. Quite the challenge in the daylight, nerve-wracking in the dark. We solved this by parking in the lower pull-off area and then walking up the hill part way to the door. A quirk all over CR, be prepared for spotty internet and slow speeds. Bring a book or DVD for off the grid evening entertainment. Monkeys, parrots, raccoons, coatis and even whales were our daily entertainment.

Nevertheless, none of these little issues should deter anyone from staying here. It is truly worthy of a 5 star rating. We usually have a rule of never visiting the same place twice, however the beauty of this house and the people of CR will make it difficult for us to not break that rule. I expect we will return here one day, hopefully soon!
