  • 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!!"

  • Birthday family trip

    "The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because the house was not quite as well kept as in the pictures. Although the house is still beautiful, it seems in need of a little maintenance, mostly on the outside. I do, however, want to praise and compliment the concierge manager and chef! Both were very welcoming, accommodating with excellent service and manners. Fabrice, the concierge manager, was waiting at the house upon on our arrival and continued to connect with us throughout the week to ensure we had everything we needed and were set for our activities. He even handled a potential problem quickly and calmly. It was so refreshing to know he was just a call away, if we needed anything at all. Camille and Pascal, the chefs, were also wonderful and the food was delicious! They even made a beautiful cake for my daughter's birthday. I highly recommend hiring them for a meal or two while your stay at Wood Box."

  • 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!"

  • A True Paradise, You Never Want To Leave

    "The moment I walked through the door of this beautiful condo, I knew I was in the most perfect place I have ever vacationed. It was so spacious, beautifully furnished, including a kitchen with everything needed. looking out the glass doors was a patio, with a large table and comfortable chairs, where we enjoyed having our breakfast every morning the gardens around us were like being in Eden. Across the well maintained grounds was a beautiful lagoon pool with swim up bar. The security was excellent too, which means everything today! The beach is across the street, the best restaurants, and shopping are in walking distance. I have traveled throughout the world, and stayed in many beautiful condos, but I must say this is a favorite! I will plan to travel to Costa Rica again, and will only stay in this rental, and have already recommended it to all my family and friends! Patti Russell, San Antonio, Texas"
