  • Our home away from home. Pura Vida y Casa Julianna!

    "I have had the pleasure of staying at Casa Juliana multiple times and have seen the enhancements to this home throughout the years. The new porch is amazing, it allows for evening enjoyment without the interruption from mosquito's. We were a total of 7 and the house fit us so comfortably . From the first moment you step in to Casa Juliana, you are greated with a kind smile from Georgina who ensures we are fully aware of what the house offers, the newest updates of the neighborhood and what is happening in the community. I love that the Fine's dedicate their time to be part of Playa Junquillal community. From Bernardo at Guacamaya lodge to Molly at Cost Rica Equestrian, they all know Casa Julianna and make you feel part of their community. Hands down, this is the best place for a traveler to stay!!! We are already looking at booking our next trip !!"

  • Amazing Place for Family Retreat

    "My group of five - three sisters, two boyfriends - rented the Paraisito for a week in March. The place is outstanding and we really appreciated the amenities, including the air conditioning. The pool and outdoor dining area, coupled with the security and secluded-yet-close-to-everything location were perfect for us. The pictures on the website do not do this place justice - trust me - it's super nice! The only negatives are that we couldn't get the grill to work - and two of us are chefs - so it just smoldered for an hour before we went inside to use the oven. And, due to a town-wide water restriction, we didn't have water in the house from 4 pm - 8 am. Nothing to do with the property team, just something to be aware of if you visit Costa Rica during the end of the dry season. The management team, both Virginie and Erika are amazing and super helpful. There's a white binder in the house with everything you need to know about enjoying your time in Nosara and we found it extremely helpful. Cannot recommend this place and this team enough."

  • 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."

  • 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!!"
