Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here! House was very comfortable, quiet, and secure. Easy walking to grocery and restaurants. Bus stop was close to go into Manuel Antonio Park, beaches, and Quepos. Our favorite part of the house was the private pool! Thank you so much, Val!

Wonderful little spot!

  • 5 of 5

Great little spot in the area, and was perfect for two couples! Condo was lovely, modern, clean and had everything that was needed. We expected that the area would be maybe a bit busy and noisy given the proximity to the Manuel Antonio area, but sitting outside in nice little gardens felt very secluded and private and we did not find overly noisy at all compared to everywhere else in Costa Rica we've been. LOVED that we could walk up to the main road in 5-min and grab a cab to anywhere we wanted to go in the area, and they were very reasonably priced. Val was very helpful anytime we needed to contact her with questions. Would highly recommend visiting the beach to witness the sunset, and we also did a boat tour with Sunset Tours out of Quepos Marina that was outstanding. Love this little spot and we regret that we didn't stay longer, we will be back!!!

Lovely property in a convenient location

  • 4 of 5

We spent a lovely three days at Villa Casaloma. The house is very unique in its design and is in a good location being half way between Quepos and Manuel Antonio. I would have given it a five star rating but the neighbourhood in which the house is located includes some very noisy neighbours.

Needing TLC

  • 1 of 5

This is the first time I've ever written a poor review for a home that I've rented through VRBO, and we've rented several in Costa Rica and other Caribbean locations. However, I'm afraid it is necessary. We arrived at the arranged meeting point to meet Bart (a friend of Mike's because Mike could not make it). Bart asked if we had a reservation, because according to their records we had no reservation. Luckily I had printed out the emails that confirmed our reservation and receipt of payment. The house had not been cleaned since the last use, luckily the cleaning person lives next door. She quickly cleaned the home while we waited. Bart also explained they were over booked. Our last day was also reserved by someone else, but they'd try to work it out. That was the last time we ever heard from Bart or Mike. Never saw or heard from anyone (poor customer service).

This is a really nice home. Unfortunately, it is being neglected. The landscaping is totally overgrown (not like shown in the pics). Pool was not well maintained. Bart instructed me to run the pumps for 2 hours each day. Unfortunately the water level in the pool was too low for the pumps to work and filter the water. Also the breaker box has no cover, with several bare wires, so I was concerned with being jolted. Both patio doors have handles that are falling off. Mold on the ceilings in two places. One day when it rained, I discovered there was a leak in the master bedroom closet because my clothes were wet. Those beautiful, fancy showers you see in the pics, are now very dirty and have broken soap dispensers that don't function. Overall the house is just plain dirty. Lots of ants. The kitchen is severely under supplied. There was a total of 4 glasses (of various sizes). We had 5 people in our party. The plates are the cheapest plastic plate you can buy at a dollar store. Same with the silverware. Only two soup/cereal bowls, for a house that sleeps 5.

the lower level patio was extremely dirty. Some of the furniture was missing the cushions, so unusable. Location is very convenient however there are several neighbors very close by. Roosters crowing very early in the morning and several barking dogs.

Really is too bad that this beautiful home is being neglected in this manner. Maybe that explains why the rate on this home is low compared to other comparable homes.

great value and comfortable property

  • 5 of 5

Villa Casaloma has a great location - just off the main road (that side road and the driveway are a bit steep). This is a great value and the villa is very nice. We enjoyed cooling off in the pool and the garden/yard area is nice and tranquil. Owner (Sam) lives just up the hill/driveway and was very responsive to email/phone as needed. The villa is inside a private gate and very secure. Would definitely rent this villa again. Easy check-in and check-out process.
