  • 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!"

  • Absolutely Perfect!

    "Absolutely Perfect! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ My two daughters and significant other stayed in the villa to celebrate my 60th birthday. The villa is spectacular from the view to the furnishings both inside and out to the layout and to the location. It was nice my daughters each had their own bedroom with very comfortable beds. We enjoyed the master suite with the attached bathroom. The half bath was also very nice to have. The little gardening sink area with the clothes lines were nice to dry towels. It was also nice to have a washer and dryer available. We so enjoyed eating outside at night under the stars after grilling dinner. There were so many comfortable sitting spaces outside both on the lower level and the upper deck. The garden area surrounding the lower patio was beautiful as was the view. The inside furnishings are very comfortable and the villa is supplied with everything you could possibly want. The rental process was smooth and seamless. We did early morning (6 AM) walks everyday walking up and down alot of hills. It is quite a sweaty walk up the hills from the lower pool and Picante, but not too bad early in the morning. Great views walking up even higher from the villa. The howler monkeys entertained us every morning and every evening at the upper pool which is a few villas down from this one. The Bahia Pez Vela map does not show this infinity pool, but we used it more than the lower one. Most of the time we were the only ones in it except for late afternoon when a few others would join us. We had a car which I would recommend so you can go to Father Rooster's and in to Playas del Coco. I would highly recommend this villa! Thank you Emily so much for allowing us to rent your villa!"

  • Nice place a bit outside of the town

    "We booked this condo of the recommendation of a friend/coworker that stayed here previously. It was truly more than we needed, as there was only two of us, but the extra space a quietness was appreciated. The location is nice but if you don't have a car you'll need to take a taxi for most places or walk about 1-2 miles for restaurants/stores in town. Although the pizza place down the street was nice and staff very helpful. The condo itself was nice and well appointed for the most part, but many of the lights were burned so lighting at night wasn't the best. It is well stocked with kitchen items except it would be nice to have a few more basic supplies available for cooking (mainly spices, oil etc) so you don't have to supply the entire cabinet on your week trip. Also there was little to now, soap or toilet paper when we arrived, so a little better stocking by the management staff would be helpful. I would definitely recommend chef Frank of to come cook you a meal or two. That was definitely a highlight of the stay! Also be careful if you book in Sept/Oct as this is the slow season and many places/activities are closed or have limited hours."

  • Most Amazing Place!

    "We just came back from a week at Barefoot Villa. We had the beast vacation ever! The location is amazing; it's close to the beach and within walking distance of "town". The villa has every amenity anyone could ask for. The lanai was our favourite room in the house. The quality of the linens is exceptional and the beds are super comfortable. Nina the cook is amazing! Everything she prepared for us was delicious and healthy. She is a real sweat lady who added a unique and enjoyable element to our vacation. The area is very safe. The beach and the surf is outstanding. If you need assistance arranging excursions, surf lessons or transport, I'd strongly suggest contacting Natalie or Johan at Nosara Family Surf ( We will definitely be back!"
