  • Perfect Retreat

    "Six of us stayed at Casa Bali. It was perfect! Great location- a bike ride to the beach and Lola's restaurant. The house is behind a gate so gives a private feel. The pool was a great place to cool off and just hang out with a drink. The bedrooms were spacious and very clean. We are looking to go back next year. It was the most relaxed I have been in 10 years. Thank you!"

    "The house was bigger than I expected and comfortable. It was clean and organized. The yard is just a pool and a small table but to be honest, we only swam and stayed inside due to typical Costa Rica bugs during this time of year. The A/C units worked perfectly. They appear to be somewhat new and easy to use the remotes. I wish there were maybe 1 or 2 comfy chairs in the living room rather than just the sofa. We were all clumped on the sofa together so some room off the only couch would be nice. But, no biggy. Didn't spend much time in there anyway. The bed in master room a bit hard but I prefer that over too soft. Maybe add a pillow top cover with memory foam and problem solved! The shower head upstairs needs some TLC but not a huge issue. It worked and we showered with no problem. The kitchen is fully stocked with all pots, pans, silver, plates, glasses, etc...we had all we needed. We had some issues with the lights in the living room as they could not be turned off. We had a teenager who wanted to sleep in there (rather than with his little brother) so he had to sleep with the lights on. But, we blew a fuse one day and figured out that #16 on the panel shuts them off.....if you want to know. Gate lock downstairs is a little tricky and it made some of the guys mad...but, I never had a problem with it. Worked for me! hahahahha Just don't over think it...turn key, twist, pull door open. :) We rented a golf cart....WAY TO GO!!! Perfect for getting to the beach with boards, bags, towels, and children. We had to do 2 trips since there was 7 of us but only a 6-7 minutes drive. We rented bikes for a day but too hot to pedal around and kids tired easily. Rent a golf cart! Alan, JuanRo, Stephan, and team are the BEST! A+ service from these guys! Juan gave us a phone to call any of them when needed and we used was perfect. They accommodated our adventure needs with ease! showed up on time for every event (we were a bit late...but not those guys). The transportation always had A/C to keep us cool...and drivers were safe on the roads. Alan told us all sorts of cool things about Costa Rica and gave us tips for our next trip back! He's the best! I highly recommend the pure adrenaline tour! It's not for the lazy have your energy drink! So much fun!!! What else? Oh...we had a small electrical issue and Juan had a guy come out within minutes to fix it. I will use these guys next time...for sure!!"

  • Exceptional home! Don't second guess-just book it:-).

    "Tom & Maria have a gorgeous property & this home is by far, the most favorite VRBO rental I have ever stayed at. The three bedroom home is simply stunning with great vistas of Lake Arenal. The home is in beautifully maintained & we truly enjoyed our stay. Maria & Tom were so helpful in planning our excursions & put up with our indecisiveness on which excursions would work for our family. There just aren't enough adjectives to describe the beauty of their property, the home, the views & the loveliness of the locals we met on our trip. While we enjoyed our visit to the beaches of Costa Rica, their Arenal home was our favorite on our 11 day trip. If there is any downside to the location, it would be it's a bit of a drive to some of the activities we did closer to La Fortuna but we really didn't see it as a big disadvantage. We enjoyed the spas at Tabacon the most and the breakfast spot, Cafe y Macadamia, was amazing. Great views, great breakfasts - a nice fit with our lovely stay with Tom & Maria."

  • 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!"
