  • July 2016 - Family Vacation

    "My wife and I and four teenage children loved this property. The setting is breathtaking, with views of the volcano and lake. Very nicely landscaped, with many species of birds visiting. Viewing the sun setting over the lake from the 2nd floor veranda hammock is an ABSOLUTE MUST! Large rooms with great views provided plenty of space for everyone's needs. We could comfortably gather as a group, or retreat to one's own space. The on-site WIFI easily powered all of our devices, and kept the teens happy. Along with the pool table, awesome large swimming pool and hot tub. Great for unwinding after a day of adventure. The property is conveniently located- a short trip (5 min.) to town for shopping and eating out if you desire (although the on-property kitchen is large and well-equipped to prepare anything if you choose). A freshly made, hot breakfast was provided each day- a great treat that allowed us to be into the day's events quickly each morning. A short drive (less than an hour) to numerous destinations like canyoning, zip-lining, hot springs, volcano. Michelle was very helpful in setting us up with reservations for adventure outings and dinner- in several cases she managed to get deals better than published rates. Alex was great, and led the daily horseback rides through the countryside, pointing out the toucan nests as we went! Highly recommend for groups and families."

  • Submerged in nature…

    "Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay! The property is surrounded by such beautiful nature. We saw so many birds and monkeys! The walk down to the creek with waterfall was amazing – definitely recommend taking a dip in the water. Everything was as described, or better. Mike and Cindy were so genuinely friendly and helpful! They have a tons of information they didn’t hesitate to share. Thank you for all the recommendations and suggestions! If we ever find ourselves back in Costa Rica, this is the place where we’ll be staying. Thank you for a wonderful time!"

  • Tropical Gardens with lake view

    "Casa Bella Vista is set at the top of the property which is in a beautiful tropical garden that is private and gated. The gardens are lush with tropical plants and fruits and and varied array of birds and butterflies. Tom and Maria are most helpful and will give recommendations on your requests. Maria was able to a book ziplining tour for us at a discounted price and must do for anyone who would love an incredible view of the rainforest. The villa has a small kitchen where you can prepare simple meals with groceries from the town about a 20 minute drive away. It is a great location away from the crowds but close enough to use as a home base for northern Costa Rica."
