  • Perfect House for a C.R. vacation

    "After a year in the planning, our family vacation in Costa Rica was even more than we hoped for, and much of the credit is to the house, Ventana del Mar. The pictures on VRBO drew me in and the actual house more than lived up to the pictures. We were a family of 10, ages 8 to 80, and every one of us enjoyed the pool, slide, palapa and the always cool open air living space surrounded by trees and greenery. The bedrooms were spaced so we never felt crowded. The 5 minute walk to the beach made beach trips a daily delight, especially with the warm ocean and the boogie boards provided. And few, if any, other beachgoers. The house had everything we wanted or needed. Gerardo, the caretaker, answered all of our questions and helped us arrange outings and rides to Samara. It is a short walk to the grocery store and several restaurants so we never lacked for eating opportunities. An added plus was the quick response from Michael, the owner, to each of our numerous questions during the planning. Ventana del Mar and Costa Rica will always be a special place to our family. All 10 of us would highly reccommend it for a fantastic vacation.!"

  • Very nice place in a fun, safe little town on the beach

    "We stayed a few days before heading south. Everything was as described. Very nice and exceptionally clean. We had what we needed to cook, bathroom was properly stocked with towels and the bed linens looked brand new. Frank had some nice beach towels for us to use, so nice I left them alone because I didn't want to get them dirty! There's also a propane grill and, I think, a cooler too. The unit is very secure and was easy walking distance to beach, bars and restaurants. The shared pool area is wonderful and like many others posted, we enjoyed the friendly people staying in the condos around us as well as they people who were taking care of the grounds. Also, Frank was very helpful, hospitable and accommodating. He even dropped what he was doing to rescue me from myself when I accidentally locked stuff in the safe and couldn't get it open again because I didn't read the directions. I look forward to renting from Frank again! Mark and Amy"

  • Vacationing in Costa Rica was a trip of a life time! Specically, Playa Conchal , Guanacaste!

    "We were a family of 6 adults visiting Playa Conchal during the wet season and lived very comfortably in this beautiful, clean 3 bedroom condo. The cozy furniture was very accommodating for us including VERY comfortable beds.The spacious kitchen was well stocked with the necessary cooking utensils including a breakfast bar. The spacious balcony provided us with views of the gorgeous golf course, ocean bay and hilly landscape. The condo with free wifi, sits high on a hill a few miles from the beach but easily attainable by calling the office for a shuttle. Every driver was so friendly sharing interesting facts of the local culture, plant and animal life, being very accommodating to stop the shuttle for snapshots of the howler monkeys, iguanas, views of the bay, or beautiful trees/flowers which painted the path to the beach. Your drop off point was in front of the beach club which boarders the fairly secluded beautiful beach. The beach club provided you with locker/shower rooms, a spa and workout facility, 2 pools and the outdoor eloquent yet causal restaurant, our go to place when making it a day at the beach (gourmet meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, very reasonably priced) and an upstairs bar overlooking the treetops and ocean bay. The weather was ideal the wk we stayed as it was usually sunny and in the mid 80s during the day (storms at late afternoons) being ideal for basking in the sun on nice lounge chairs, taking walks on the sandy beach, swimming in the translucent turquoise water, kayaking, and paddle boarding all of which are provided through the beach club. While on the beach one has access to massages given for $20.00 an hr under the shade of the trees. A must have if you enjoy massages!! This lovely condo unit also has access to a secluded small pool, patio area and barbecue for a more quiet setting . I highly recommend hiring a driver. We had Dee (Ditier)recommended by our condo's owner, Tom. Dee, a very polite English speaking man who has obvious pride in his country and people, was so accommodating to our needs, desires with great suggestions. I pay tribute to Tom, a fantastic man who helped in planning out our trip. Tom was so easily accessible via email and by phone. He was informative and gave us a preview of what we may expect via pictures sent to us. What to bring: wash machine detergent, deet, day pack for daily outings, causual clothes with hiking footwear, USA currency excepted everywhere. Tap water very safe to drink!"

  • Perfection in Costa Rica!!

    "First off, Kim was absolutely amazing in how much she put into my fiancé's and my stay at her property. She went above and beyond by giving us a dozen or more restaurant recommendations in the area. The property itself was immaculate and the Westin community is perfection!! I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone who expects 5 star properties / amenities. I will absolutely stay here again in the future!! Thanks again, Kim!!"
