  • Pictures simply don't do it justice!

    "From the moment we contacted Jim about Mariposa, the entire experience was beyond what we expected. He provided us with tons of information about the home and surrounding areas and even arranged transport from the airport. The drive from the airport (Liberia) was beautiful and an adventure in itself as a few of the roads were a bit treacherous (but never scary). A few bumps on a dirt road are well worth the breathtaking view of Punta Islita from the house. Absolutely breathtaking - that's all I can say! We enjoyed time relaxing in the beautiful pool while watching the macaws fly by, and we were blown away by the phenomenal service of the staff at Punta Islita. Everyone was so incredibly kind and accommodating. We waited too long to book a golf cart, but my family is pretty adventurous and enjoyed the challenging walk. I would definitely suggest booking a golf cart early if you are not fond of a steep climb on a paved road. Thank you for everything Jim! It was a 40th birthday surprise that my husband will treasure forever!"

  • Best Family Trip!

    "We recently stayed at Casa Colina with our 2 teenaged daughters and another family who has 2 daughters the same age. The villa was perfect for us! There was ample room for everyone. Closet & drawer space was plentiful. The linen closet was well stocked with sheets & towels. The bathrooms were spacious and the kitchen had everything we needed. Glad to have the washer & dryer for daily laundering of dirty clothes/bathing suits from all our adventures! It was also very helpful to have the safe for our valuable items. The villa wasn't just functional, it was also beautifully decorated. Everything looked beachy & fresh. It was a pleasure to be there! In terms of Bahia Pez Vela, we felt very safe - there's a security gate. Walk to the beach was only a minute or so. There is a pretty steep hill that you can't get around when going to the beach, so if you have trouble walking that might not be ideal, but was fine for us. It is a little tucked away, but we loved that. The cove is gorgeous & it was nice to have a virtually private beach. We ate at the on-premise restaurant, Picante, one evening & everyone enjoyed it. We wished they had a breakfast offering. Cesar & Jacky in the office were helpful with suggestions & securing taxis. Prior to our trip, Neil, the homeowner, was very responsive & helpful. In terms of Guanacaste, GO! The country is beautiful, the people are friendly, the food is excellent and the activities are endless! We will go again & we would absolutely stay at Casa Colina again!"

  • Gorgeous House and Beach!

    "Stayed her with my husband, kids and extended family. We had in total 9 adults and 3 kids (under the age of 7) and fit very comfortably in the house. The location on the beach is amazing and love the the tranquility of it! Beautiful views! If you are looking for a beautiful place to relax, please rent this home it's perfect. A lady from the surf shop came by and rented us boogie boards for the kids for $7 a day and offered surf lessons. They had a blast! If you want night life, Tamarindo is just a 20 min drive away. Great time and would definitely do it again!"

  • What A Wonderful Vacation

    "You couldn't ask for a better location, right on the beach and truly a fantastic view so peaceful. The water is wonderfully warm and clear. We had usage of Greg and Daniella's personal home, it is awesomely appointed throughout. They have an excellent staff who made our stay seamless as we felt right at home. We enjoyed cocktails and conversation with Greg and Daniella who felt more like long time friends than landlords. We plan on returning and look forward in sharing a pitcher of margaritas!"
