  • House was Great: Location/View...Neighbor with vicious, barking German Shepards was awful!

    "We had a large group and were very comfortable at Casa Miramar. The house is very large and there was plenty of room for all of us to spread out. The view from the balcony is breathtaking and the highlight of the house. It was nice to jump in the pool during the day and soak in the Jacuzzi at night. We walked to the beach and local restaurants on several occasions and the hike back up to the house was good exercise! We rented a 4-wheel drive SUV, highly recommended for any of the Costa Rican unpaved roads! We made good use of it and drove to lots of the nearby beaches. Donald was great and cleaned the pool and balcony area daily. Marta made the beds and swept, but did not empty the trash in any of the bathrooms or kitchen. We also had trouble getting the appropriate number of bath towels for our party and had to share the first few days. We started out with only one spoon and after mentioning this to the rental staff, Marta brought up a handful the next day. The house could use more glasses and coffee cups. Also, we were told toilet tissue and paper towels were included, but we never got paper towels and were limited to 2 rolls of TP per bathroom for our 10-day stay. I would suggest charging $100 more per week and let people have as much TP & PT as they need! The staff at Special Places was very helpful answering emails and arranging excursions prior to our arrival. However, they seemed a bit disorganized after our arrival asking all in our party to come into the office to sign credit card receipts for our excursions despite us submitting a credit card authorization form prior to our arrival. They never mentioned we would have to come into the office and do this and it was a bit irritating since we wanted to start our vacation! The neighbor next door with the dogs was awful. She encouraged the dogs to bark at anyone walking by and the dogs barked at all hours of the day and night disturbing our sleep. The car gate at the bottom of the driveway needed repairing one day and the neighbor left the dogs outside to bark at the repairmen for hours. If you could get rid of the neighbor and her dogs, the house is ideal!"

  • Convenient and comfortable, beautiful views

    "My family had a wonderful time at Villa Buena Vista. The house has everything you need to feel right at home. There's plenty of kitchen supplies to cook all meals, piles of towels to take down to the beach, and 4 lovely dogs that welcome you every afternoon. We especially liked the short drive to Playa Danta beach resort. You can rent kayaks, SUP boards, boogie boards, and mountain bikes to ride or hike the extensive trail system with gorgeous views of the gold coast. We felt safe having the dogs around as well as Ernesto, who lives on the property also. Wifi signal was strong and air conditioning units in each room worked perfectly. If I could make any recommendations it would be to change the mattresses in bedrooms 2 and 3, which are uncomfortably hard, though the sheets were clean and soft. I would recommend this property to travelers of all ages and groups from 1-6 people. This is the life! Pura Vida!"

  • Amazing Spot

    "This was by far one of the coolest, best located, and well laid out properties we saw while in Costa Rica. Villa Martita was a fantastic place for a group of people that are looking to have a fun, energetic time but also gives the privacy for couples, parents or kids. I can't say enough good things about Luis, night security, what a stand up guy he was and a pleasure to talk with. Santos and Angelica were fantastic as well. They kept the place spotless even with a bunch of wedding bound individuals looking to have a fun vacation. The animal presence was much more than expected and made the lounge time very interesting. Monkeys, lizards, birds, crabs, the list goes on. The location of the house couldn't be in a better spot, high on a hillside overlooking the private beach (which you can use) and the pacific ocean. The feel of the home was perfect. We really appreciated the more natural look and finish to the house, rather than a pristine condition home. It gives you more of a local feel to it, which was perfect. People in the area were extremely nice and helpful. Coco-loco is a 3 minute walk down the street, which is also a plus. I would highly recommend this property to those looking for a place to let loose a bit, stay safe and be around nature. We will definitely be back in the future."

  • Relax , local and beautiful

    "My boyfrind and I stayed 5 nights in this charming little casa. It was perfect. It is near the beach (5 minutes walk), near the mini-markets and it is not really touristic. You feel like you are a local, you feel good. Everyone is friendly. The house is small, but you have everything that you need, plus you have everynight a beautiful sunset. Prieta beach (5 minutes) is totally beautiful and Penca beach (5 minutes) is perfect to watch the sunset during swiming in the pacifical waves. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedroom is charming with the A/C. Josepha, the caretaker who lives close to the casa, is really kind, helpful and she will help you to learn more spanish words! We could stay many more weeks here. I recommend it for a couple or for a small family. we will come back."
