  • Perfect Spot

    "We decided to try someplace new for our 10th Anniversary. Costa Rica was the end choice and what a great decision it was! Sol Y Mar 1A was super and just what we needed. The condo is one of a very few right on the beach in Playa Hermosa. We were there in "rainy" season and I guess their out of season time....thank heavens! It was beautiful each morning, then like clockwork the clouds built up and there was a beautiful afternoon shower which cleared off before sunset on a couple nights. There were very few people around, we had the beach to ourselves every day. The condo is a quick ride from the airport, close to a small grocery store and 20 minutes to a bigger store in Coco. It has everything you need to get started on cooking in if that is your choice. We traveled with our two kids and two grandparents and we always rent houses or condos on vacation. Normally, we will cook in to save some money, but to also have all the choices of the local gardens and in this case the ocean. All the beds were comfortable, the furnishings were all top of the line. Zindis or NoProblemo do the management of the property and they were awesome as well. We had a couple questions on how the A/C worked and where to do this and that. Had great suggestions and were super helpful. They helped with the car booking and even a snorkeling/fishing trip. We would highly recommend relying on them rather than guessing the way around. Playa Hermosa in the off season is super quiet. There isn't much nightlife and we dined alone the two nights we went out to eat. Both choices right there in town were exceptional. We will definitely put this place in the vacation rotation, if not every year...every other. Can't wait for next "rainy" season to go back."

  • Best Vacation Ever!!!!

    "Our family of 8 adults and 3 college age just had one of the best family reunion vacations ever at Casa Orquidea. We have rented big houses in other vacation destinations before but none of them came close to the beauty and comfort of Casa Orquidea. The pictures don't do justice to the feelings you get when you first walk in...everyone was " look at this..." about the many great features of the house from the beautifully decorated large comfortable living spaces and the large bedrooms and bathrooms. The highlite was looking through the beautiful wooden doors out to the large marble tiled deck and Infinity pool. The backyard is beautifully landscaped with rows of palm trees, native shrubbery and flowers for privacy. This was the gathering place most nights after dinner in the pool listening to music and awed by the bright stars and moon. We would start in the upstairs gorgeous entertainment room with high vaulted ceilings that has a wine bar and make our way out to the pool. The Housekeeper, Maura, made our stay even more enjoyable because she took care of cleaning up...no arguments over who would do dishes. Maura had coffee brewed when we got up and made breakfast while we talked about plans for the day...it doesn't get any better than this!!! A few of us would walk down to the beautiful secluded beach near the house and went snorkeling after breakfast.Then most days we would head down to the Beach Club ...a short ride in the golf cart provided with the house. The Beach Club was enjoyed by all because it had everything one would want.....a large pool right in front of the ocean where there was a surf break and surfers rode the waves. It is on one of two beautiful miles long beaches on the property..Avellanas and Langosta. In addition good food and drinks at reasonable prices.We had dinner there on Friday night with a violinist playing beautiful songs to a breathtaking sunset. There are many tours the Property Management team can set up for you. Our favorite was the sunset and snorkel cruise. Costa Rica is a beautiful country. I highly recommend Casa Orchidea...you will never forget your stay!!!"

  • Great location for Monteverde and Santa Elena. Larry and Oscar are amazing hosts!

    "The location is great for exploring Monteverde and Santa Elena. Larry sat down with us for almost an hour telling us about different sights to see and places to eat. I did months of research, but he told us about some places that I'd never heard of. Wifi was great, and they'll even help you do laundry."

  • Perfect place to stay

    "Our second stay here. It's a fantastic house, well laid-out as regards the bedrooms and great social areas with amazing views. There are two beaches very nearby, one wild without facilities and another with nearby bars and the possibility to rent sun loungers etc. We alternated between the two. The house was well-staffed with someone always cleaning the pool or the house. We've already recommended this house."
