  • Awesome Access, BEAUTIFUL property, all the amenities and more than home!

    "Traveling to Costa Rica for the first time with extended family -- kiddo and grandparents. Rich opened up his home to us, and it was fabulous! I dropped the ball upon arrival in terms of coordinating keys, but reached out to Rich, and within 10 minutes a set were delivered to get us in! Saved me from the scowls. After that, everything was blissful. The home is beautiful and has everything we needed. We were so close to all the restaurants, bars, day and nightlife of Tamarindo. We could walk through the neighborhood to get to Playa Langosta to surf. Incredible stay, and would love to visit his place again soon! Thanks, Rich!"

  • A week in paradise - wish we were still there!!

    "What an amazing experience we had at Casa Paquita. First of all the house...It could not have been more perfect for the 4 families that stayed there. The kids loved the bunk room and the parents appreciated the well built (thick!) walls that kept their early mornings quiet. My husband and I stayed in the master suite which has a balcony and beautiful views of the pacific. We loved the beautiful woodwork and exquisite handpainted tiles throughout and the house had plenty of room for all of us. And the pool! The pool was perfect!!! An infinity pool overlooking the pacific was the perfect place to sit drinking our morning coffee, playing in all day and then watching the magnificent sunsets. Endless hours of entertainment for the kids (and adults) and Christian, the groundskeeper, kept it looking beautiful every day!! Paola, the property manager extraordinaire, was so instrumental in making sure our stay was perfect. She and I emailed back and forth many times before we arrived as she assisted us with the planning of out excursions, securing a car rental and making dinner reservations. I cant imagine trying to book this trip without her! When I suggested an activity, she provided us with the very best there was to offer (Pura Adentura for ziplining, Anteres for a sunset boat tour, Sabrina for surfing and Action Advenures for kayaking were a few of her perfect suggestions!) A BIG thank you to Paola, you made our trip a memory!! And then there was Naomi - wonderful, sweet, loving Naomi!! She was our cook and housekeeper but so much more. Besides being an excellent cook (her empanades, tortillas steak, fish, plantains..!!!! The list goes on an on..) she felt like a part of the family. We all fell in love with her for her kindness and caring ways. Thank you to Rich, Paola and Naomi for a wonderful vacation - when we return to CR, we will return to Casa Paquita - absolutely perfect!!"

  • This IS the place to stay!

    "We stayed a week March '16. It is hotter than the hubs of he-double-hockey-sticks, so be prepared! The property has security, very well manicured grounds, is small and quaint, off the beaten path, literally a few steps from the pool, and 1 minute walk through the locked gate to the ocean! The accommodations are great - private laundry rm - soap included, 2 single beds in one bedroom, a queen bed in the master with a master bath. Living room, dining and kitchen are spacious and have all that you need. 2nd bath off the living space that the teenagers used. Lots of towels! Kitchen is well stocked - dish soap included. There is a charcoal grill on the patio, but charcoal is more expensive than at home (Minnesota) and the fluid is a gel that is barely sufficient. The only thing I would improve on the property is the outside chairs as they have probably seen their better days, but were still functional for coffee in the a.m. and wine in the p.m. while listening to the ocean. You will see iguanas and geckos on property, as well as some birds. This property is off the beaten path, but still very close to town - 3 min drive. Be sure to hit the farmers market right down the road from the property on Saturday a.m. - pineapple is to die for! Beach walks are a must - go during low tide to check out the tide pools. If you have a car, go to the town of Guatil to check out the hand made pottery (the office can direct you) - 1st house on the left in town is Edwin - he is fantastic! He will give you a full tour and explanation of their pottery making process that has been handed down over generations. He took us to the backyard and there were iguanas in his mango tree as well as a Howler monkey! Awesome! Ask questions! Be sure to check out Tamarindo Beach, the boat tour in the Nat'l Park is worth it - monkeys eating from our hands and on our heads! This is a very popular area for surfing. The roads suck, period. Rent an SUV for sure. Don't eat at the Bocas restaurant - overpriced for what you get. Cooking in the villa saved us a ton of money, but groceries are not as cheap there as they are here. We went to 3 different grocery stores - all were comparable, but be prepared, they aren't like at home! We did have a couple maintenance issues in our villa - staff was prompt in repairing those items. CR is experiencing a major drought, we ran out of water, they bought 10,000 gallons, pump went out, hand repaired, up and running again. Would stay again!"

  • Perfect!

    "Our family of four along with another family of four just returned from our first trip to Costa Rica. The Villa was perfect for our families. We had plenty of room and were able to make many of our meals in the beautiful kitchen. The property manager is amazing! She helped us plan activities and gave us good tips on restaurants in the area. You won't be disappointed with this Villa or the property manager."
