Living the dream for a week at Villa Amore

  • 5 of 5

If you are searching for the perfect accommodations along the Pacific coast of beautiful Costa Rica, you do not need to look any further. Villa Amore is absolutely gorgeous and extremely well laid-out, especially for couples. It boasts stunning views and soothing sounds of the surf and jungle. We all felt like we were very pampered and agreed that we would love to return someday. Alex and Jenny went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was relaxing and comfortable. We enjoyed the wonderful treat of having a delicious breakfast prepared for us each morning, including the terrific pollo pinto! They are a sweet couple, who are both terrific chefs and are very fun to converse with. There is plenty to do within an hour of the villa, but our trip to Monte Verde cloudforest was a highlight. The local, remote vibe is exactly what we were hoping for. If you desire a more authentic experience of this wonderful country, I highly recommend Villa Amore as your home away from home.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five absolutely loved our vacation to Costa Rica and our stay at Villa Amore! The house is as beautiful in person as the photos suggest. Our children - ages 15, 11 and 9 - thoroughly enjoyed beginning and ending their days with swims in the beautiful infinity pool. The views from the outdoor living areas were stunning and the sounds of the ocean was wonderful. The kitchen was wonderful and had everything we needed to cook breakfasts and dinners which we enjoyed savoring at the house. Alex and Jenny were fabulous to work with and were very helpful but non intrusive. It was a comfort having them at hand if we had any questions or needed assistance (if you stay and like to cook, you must order fish from their fish vendor...it was amazing...Alex helped us do so). The bedrooms are simple and sparse but it did not matter. It was all we needed when we fell into bed at night. We have rented many homes via VRBO and this one is our favorite thus far. It is represented honestly and fairly and is everything you'd need to have an amazing vacation. Pura Vida!

Superb Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (three young children) loved every minute during our one week vacation at Villa Amore. It truly is a beautiful home perched on breathtaking vista. George and Isabella were wonderful to work with during the trip planning, including help with transportation arrangements. The preparation on their part was very helpful and complete. There were zero surprises. Jenny and Alex are wonderful people, very helpful, and also respectful of privacy. The home, pool and ground are spotless and tidy. The beds are comfortable, and all amenities work the way they should. The kitchen is complete, and we made use of the outdoor grill on several occasions. Playa Carrillo is stunning, and only a 5 minute drive. I would advise future travelers that a car at this location would be heavily recommended, as it is a short drive from the the conveniences of Carrillo or Samara. We hope to visit again in the future.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful home! The architecture and layout of the home is extremely inviting and probably the best views we have ever had from a rental. The pool is spectacular and we were in it every day to watch the amazing sunset over the ocean. Alex and Jenny who live below were amazing! They truly made the trip special. They made us breakfast each day, assisted in directing us to great swimming spots, and even took me to the doctor in Samara when I got swimmers ear. They were awesome! We will definitely return to this oasis! Thanks so much!
