  • A slice of heaven!

    "This was my first trip to Costa Rica. As customary on our family trips we got lost on the way... from Liberia Airport to Villa Diosa del mar. Petra, the patient, warm and inviting concierge, drove a half hour to meet us to guide us to the property. GPS is a must, particularly when traveling unmarked dirt roads! Lesson learned! We arrived in the dark so we couldn't see or appreciate the full scope of the property. We woke up to a slice of heaven. It's hard to put into the words the beauty of this gem of a home and surrounding land. The attention to architectural detail, landscaping, lighting, infinity pool, furniture and art were phenomenal. Nothing was left undone. Beautiful to look at and ultra-functional for our family of eight including seven adults and a 15-year old. The property offers ample space for everyone to find their spot, and the individual casita-type rooms provide privacy and comfort. The bedrooms, all with king-size beds are air-conditioned providing a respite from the humidity and "interesting" bugs. My only suggestion to the homeowners would be to air condition the kitchen area, which would make evening dinners more comfortable and allow family members to linger longer versus rushing off to the cool comfort of the bedrooms. Petra was a godsend! She appeared within minutes whenever we called her with questions or for recommendations regarding activities or dinner reservations. She was accommodating and appropriate. Btw, upon arrival the fridge and kitchen were stocked with the grocery list we had provided her via email. She was a pleasure to communicate with prior to our trip and lovely to deal with in person. The same goes for the rest of her team including the affable housekeeper, Lara, who went out of her way to take good care of us including cooking delicious breakfasts and dinner. Big tears from me when it was time to say goodbye to heaven on earth. No doubt we will return to Villa Diosa del mar again someday. Until then... thank you for showing us the pure life! Pura vida!!"

  • A Private Paradise

    "We spent the week after Christmas at Casa La Salle with my parents and 3 young kids. All 7 of us were able to fit comfortably and still have personal space. Our kids loved the pool and pretty much lived in it the entire trip. Having Chris on site was great and he was extremely helpful. The owners have truly thought of everything and have created a private piece of paradise. The area has several nearby attractions and we were able to drive to a river tour and zip-lining without any issues. The area felt very safe and we loved how easy it was to hop down to Tamarindo or up to Flamingo. We can recommend this property wholeheartedly and look forward to staying there again."

  • Quiet Paradise

    "My wife and I could not have been happier with our choice of accommodations. Gary runs an excellent little slice of heaven right on the beach. His description and videos of the property are exactly what you get. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. If you are looking for tennis courts, a pool, widescreen TVs, and the full spa treatment, this is not the place for you. If however you are looking for la pura vida, this IS the spot. I can definitly see us staying here on a return visit to Costa Rica, I just hope it isn't too far in the future. As for Gary's recommendations on a tour company, trust me, the folks at TPV couldn't have put together a better day of tours. Wonderful way to explore the area. Several nearby restaurants as well, but glad we had a rental car for easy of getting around. Hasta Luego!"

  • Beautiful house in an amazing location

    "Casa Juliana was perfect for our stay. Our group consisted of 6 adults and there was more than enough room. We spent most of our time on the screened in porch and in the pool. The kitchen had everything we needed. The dishwasher did need to be run twice for some things. The laundry area is on the property but outside of the house. It was great to hear the local animals. We could hear howler monkeys and birds everyday. The location was good as there was a small store down the driveway as well as another store 5 min away. Lochitos was our favorite local nearby restaurant which is 10 min walking distance. Casa Juliana was the perfect place for our first visit to Costa Rica! We wouldn't hesitate to book it again!"
