  • Overall BEST experience!

    "The home owners were such a pleasure to work with and really provided the easiest and most enjoyable experience booking not only the house but also activities throughout our trip! They made planning our vacation fun and informative. They were able to set us up with private chefs for the house, massages to come to the house, and pretty much any outdoor activity you could think of. We will definitely be booking with them again in the future!!"

  • 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!!"

  • Off Season Week

    "Though everyone said that we were going off season, it was completely perfect in every way. The house is gorgeous, private pool is wonderful, the oceanfront property is awesome!!! I love having the loaded kitchen so we could have breakfast, lunch, dinner on the wrap around balcony overlooking the ocean and sunsets. The only negative thing I could say is I wish I could have stayed longer. Tip: Get massages at home!!!"
