  • Wonderful Family Vacation

    "Our extended family of 10 stayed here for a fantastic getaway to Costa Rica. The owner and staff attended to all our needs before we arrived and during our stay - extremely helpful getting us set up to enjoy the location (Playa Ocotal is a good home base) and surrounding attractions. Really enjoyed the Beach club located by Father Roosters and the one by the office more than we expected. Was perfect for the youngest grand kids. Listen to owners recommendations of what to do, and where to eat - they were spot on. Diamante Eco-Adventure Park is about ½ hour away from condo and a must do. The zip lines, ATV rides and animal sanctuary are best in class. The food was excellent and there was more to do then we had time for. We had Coco Tours Shuttle pick us up at the airport and ended up hiring the driver to take on a Palo Verde Boat expedition. This was another highlight I highly recommend. Having a local take you around and show you the sights along the way to and back from your destination allows you to see and appreciate Costa Rica at it's best. We stayed for 12 nights and left wishing we had more time to do repeats of what we did do and other items on lists that will have to wait till next time! I almost forgot to mention how wonderful it was to sit on the balcony at sunrise and sunset to listen to the wildlife and enjoy the view."

  • Beautiful House

    "We stayed at Casa Alegre for 6 days. Our group was 5 adults and 5 children ranging from 9-16 years of age. Everyone loved the house and we all slept comfortable. The layout of the house is very nice and the house feels very cozy. The pictures on the site represent exactly what the house looks like. The house was clean, pool was well-maintained, kitchen was well equipped with enough pots, pans, even a griddle making it easy to make breakfast. The pool is as big as it looks in picture, kids loved it and having your own private pool is always awesome. If you wake up really early and some evening and sit in the back porch you will see beautiful macaws flying by or sitting in the trees in the backyard, they are breathtaking. The location is great you are only 3 min from Playa Hermosa and very close to some other beaches too. Your also only 10 min from Jaco, which is a cute little town with lots of souvenir shops, restaurants. We took a drive to Manuel Antonio National Park, it was very easy to get there with GPS and took us about 1 hr 15 min. It is worth it to go they have beautiful beaches inside the park and you see lots of wildlife, monkeys roaming etc. There are many restaurants within 5 min from the house and the kids loved PizzaPata which served very good pizza and is only 2-3 min from house and they deliver too. The owner Paul, did an amazing job making the whole process go very smoothly. From getting back to us immediately so we could book the house, to making payment, giving directions to the house, giving us the keys and checkout. He was extremely accommodating and even texted us to make sure everything was going fine during our stay. I would highly recommend this property and when we go back we will be contacting you Paul. Pura Vida!!!"

  • Beautiful Grounds & View

    "We enjoyed our stay at Casa Vista very much. The view by the pool is stunningly beautiful. Diane & Peter are wonderful hosts. They will help you with planning tours or just be there for a chat. It's nice to know if you need anything they are always there to help. There was one little issue which really wasn't too much a big deal. We had booked a different cabin/casita, the one with the view but unfortunately we couldn't stay there because of construction. Diane did put us in a different cabin which was larger but it didn't have the wonderful view like the one we had originally booked. The pool area was lovely, we definitely took advantage cooling off in the pool after a hot day touring. The weather was prefect but definitely keep in mind during the dry season it gets really hot! We kept busy everyday, there are many things to do and wonderful places to eat. We found many beaches with no one on them and others that were somewhat crowded so don't be afraid to venture off the main road. Our stay was for 18 days, lots of time to get to know the area and time to chill. During our stay the area hosts a big festival called Envision. It definitely changes the feel of the area. It was much busier and the beaches at times were crowed. So if you decide to go to the South Pacific/Domincal area in late February and don't want the crowds you may want to double check the dates of this festival/Envision. If we had known we would have definitely avoided staying in that area. You definitely need a 4WD! Don't even try to get there without one. But once you get to the top and see the view you will see it's all worth it. So just go with it and enjoy the adventure. Diane & Peter have a wonderful dog, Kirby that I fell in love with, so very cute. You won't have any regrets staying at Casa Vista, you will just have great memories that will stay with you for many years. Thanks to Diane, Peter & Kirby for making our stay a wonderful experience."

  • My favorite VRBO stay to date!

    "I've stayed in many VRBO homes throughout the years and this is definitely my favorite! Esteban is the perfect host! He provides so much info beforehand and really works to make your stay and trip the best. We gave us great advice on local tour operators as well as helped us with a car and the airport transfer so we didn't have to drive in the dark on our first day. The house itself was perfect too. The beds were so comfortable and the showers were even better than home. We loved just sitting in the rocking chairs on the porch watching the horses. We did horseback riding and ATVing with them as well. It was a wonderful, personal experience. It's only your family and the guide. Also, when our daughter got sick the first day, Esteban helped us reschedule our activities so that we could still do everything we wanted. His help was priceless as my daughter and I would have ended up missing the horseback ride, which has been my favorite activity so far in 2 weeks of Costa Rica. Thank you Esteban for everything!! We will definitely be back!"
