  • Beautiful Home with Great Property Managers

    "My family and I had a great time at Villa Aurelia. The home is beautiful, the kitchen is great, and we all loved the pool. We spent our mornings at the beach and the afternoons at the pool - can't ask for a better vacation. The property managers were also great in helping us arrange for a personal chef to come to the house (who was wonderful!), book excursions, book our rental car and just navigate around the city. But there were a couple of things I wish we had known before we arrived. The home sits on a hill, which allows for a great view of Playa Hermosa. But the drive up to the house isn't ideal. Only the part right by the house is paved, and the rest is a steep, uneven dirt road. A rental car is a must, and you won't really be able to walk anywhere from the house because of the hill. Especially if you have young children, like we did. The other item we wished we had known about was the water. We were told about two days before our trip that there were severe water restrictions in place, but they shouldn't impact our vacation as long as we limited the length of our showers. Not a big deal. When we arrived the water tank was about 1/3 full, which was enough to last us a few days. But because of the above mentioned road, the water truck didn't fill the tank on Monday like they were supposed to. We went a day and a half without running water at the house, which was frustrating. The property managers were very helpful in fixing the pipe down to the road and getting trucks to come out as quickly as the could to refill the tank. Hopefully the pipe they installed prevents this from happening to anyone else, but just wanted to share our experience. And although it was frustrating, we still had a wonderful vacation."

  • Outstanding Home

    "Our stay in Costa Rica was outstanding. A huge part of our enjoyment was knowing we were returning to a well-kept private home to relax and unwind. The Villa met our expectations from cleanliness to furniture comfort. We would definitely stay here again and have already told friends to inquire if they plan to visit the area. Thank you Russell for providing a home away from home."

  • First time to Costa Rica

    "We had a great time in Costa Rica with experiences that will last a life time. I was impressed with Scott and his willingness to give all information about the condo and information on things we could do while on our trip, it really eased my stress of arranging everything for my family. The condo its self was perfect for our family of six; it had plenty of room and loved the location right next to the pool not to mention the three bathrooms. Scott's friend Ariel came by to discuss tour options. Ariel became a part of our family since he was along with us on our adventurous days. First we went on his boat and snorkeled, he also took us to a white sand beach which was beautiful. The next adventure was a fully day of zip lining, tubing, riding horses, and the hot springs. Ariel spent the entire day with us and help us along the way. The third trip was on the river to see the monkeys and crocs. again Ariel travel with us as our tour guide. I felt very safe and seen things that I otherwise would not have if Ariel was not our guide so I HIGHLY recommend his services. Overall I would recommend the condo, Ariel's tours, and Costa Rica!"

  • Paradise on the Beach

    "The Blue Villa was unreal. The location is right on the south end of Playa Hermosa Beach and is absolutely beach front, best sunset views we've ever had. The house fit our 8 guest perfectly (4 adults and 4 kids 7-13 yrs old). I could not have designed a better layout if I tried. We spent most of the time on the back deck and in the water. One unexpected surprise was Freddie the property caretaker. He lives right onsite and was invaluable in helping us with everything from showing us how all the appliances work to helping us fix our paddle board pump. The whole stay was perfect and we will be back again."
