  • 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!!"

  • Perfect in every way!

    "Just got back from a week at La Choza and this house was absolutely perfect!! We have 5 kids and this was the best vacation we've ever had. The owner of the house, Raini, was fantastic. She was in touch with my wife via email countless times and gave us advice regarding directions, places to go, even restaurants. She really went the extra mile to make sure we had a great vacation. The house is simply deluxe and has everything you could possibly need. The pool is amazing. The layout is ideal for families and the huge deck overlooking Playa Negra is spectacular. There is only a short walk to one of the best surfing beaches in Costa Rica. Fatima the house keeper was also great as was her husband Jose who looks after the pool and the yard. You can really tell that the owners have thought of everything when constructing this incredible property. I can't imagine a better place to stay!!"

  • What A Wonderful Vacation

    "You couldn't ask for a better location, right on the beach and truly a fantastic view so peaceful. The water is wonderfully warm and clear. We had usage of Greg and Daniella's personal home, it is awesomely appointed throughout. They have an excellent staff who made our stay seamless as we felt right at home. We enjoyed cocktails and conversation with Greg and Daniella who felt more like long time friends than landlords. We plan on returning and look forward in sharing a pitcher of margaritas!"

  • Beautiful and Peaceful

    "Our family spent Christmas in this beautiful home. The home is spacious and had everything we needed for a perfect vacation. We spent a great deal of time in the pool and used the outdoor grill for most our meals. We were surrounded by nature and wild life and it was incredibly peaceful. Close to beaches, restaurants and tons of activities. It was a perfect home, perfect location, perfect Christmas."
