  • 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."

  • "We're kinda staying at a mansion"

    "Our group of 10 loved Villa Bellitza. When invited to stay out at a beach party, one member of our group said, "No thanks, I'm kinda staying at a mansion." Most people in our crew surfed throughout the day, and the private jungle path to the beach was an asset. No coordination necessary. Want to surf? Walk down the path, and you're there. On the path we saw monkeys and crabs. At the house, we had visitors including iguanas, a coati, raccoons, armadillos, and birds. The house has plenty of room to spread out, hide from the sun, and hide from one another if necessary. Also, the plethora of outdoor seating and an inviting pool area drew the majority of the crew throughout the day. I didn't think the pool would be important. It was. It is HOT in the middle of the day, and the pool was the lifeline. Town water shortages meant that water was turned off from about 6pm-7am, but you get used to it. Tried to sleep without using the A.C. but eventually caved. The A.C.s do a decent job cooling down the rooms, but especially the downstairs of the junior suite. House is walkable to a variety of restaurants and bars, and makes for a fantastic home base. On a couple of days, I never left "the compound." Ed is a great property manager who helped us to coordinate a chef for the group - meals for the group of 10 were $100 (chicken meal) and $120 (fish) - definitely recommended."

  • Amazing vacation experience

    "This property is beautiful and has a pristine and serene beach. There is an amazing attention and care given to the details on the property. Barbara was great in regards to communication and booking the location. When we arrived we noted that every attention was given to details to make sure our stay was great and enjoyable. The staff at the location where extremely helpful, nice and professional. The amazing infinity pool overlooking the ocean was breathtaking specially at sunset. Make sure to have Meisol make you a drink at the poolside bar. We ended up going on multiple excursions and seeing different beaches in Costa Rica but none of them came close to this flamingo beach. Our two little kids had a blast on the beach which was steps away from the condo on what seemed to us to be our own private beach. Phem and her team from Special Places were great in making sure that all of our needs are met. This place was truly a hidden jewel. I enthusiastically recommend this location to anyone who is interested in going to Costa Rica and having a wonderful time"

  • Threes a charm!

    "This was our third trip to Casa de la Playa,and definatly one of the best. We had great weather and perfect wave conditions. The last few days we had some Guanacaste winds which kept the winds blowing for perfect offshore waves for surfing and also kept the crowds down, along with keeping the temps a little cooler. We also checked out Rosies second location which is new and excellent. Try the homemade cucumber salsa. It's great on eggs and on their fish sandwich thats one of the best we've ever had. We also had dinner at Pacifica Azul which is now located at The Gilded Iguana. That was also great ,we actually wish we'd hit there earlier in the trip because of how much fun we had there. But of course we also frequented Il Pepperoni the most. It's right around the corner from the house and it's our favorite, we love it there! El Chivo (which is also right down the road) had a super bowl party and they did a great job. They set up multiple tv's and the place was packed with lots of ex pat's and visiting tourists, almost forgot I was in another country, if it wasn't for the open air restaurant and palm trees. Almost everyday we went to the pool which is beautiful. We would read and swim, it was perfect especially after a surf session. We really enjoyed our stay at this house. It's really set up perfectly for 2 couples and extra family. The water shortage that was occurring while we were there, was really no big deal. We were made aware of it when we arrived and we prepared for it. We had extra water bottles/jugs and filled them every day and did the dishes in the am. when the water was back on. So as I said it was really no big deal we dealt with it and everyone on the trip had a great time. We all look forward to coming back next year and agreed it was probably our most fun and relaxing trip to Nosara yet. Can't wait to come back for an even longer stay, Pura Vida, we love it there!"
