  • A slice of heaven!

    "This was my first trip to Costa Rica. As customary on our family trips we got lost on the way... from Liberia Airport to Villa Diosa del mar. Petra, the patient, warm and inviting concierge, drove a half hour to meet us to guide us to the property. GPS is a must, particularly when traveling unmarked dirt roads! Lesson learned! We arrived in the dark so we couldn't see or appreciate the full scope of the property. We woke up to a slice of heaven. It's hard to put into the words the beauty of this gem of a home and surrounding land. The attention to architectural detail, landscaping, lighting, infinity pool, furniture and art were phenomenal. Nothing was left undone. Beautiful to look at and ultra-functional for our family of eight including seven adults and a 15-year old. The property offers ample space for everyone to find their spot, and the individual casita-type rooms provide privacy and comfort. The bedrooms, all with king-size beds are air-conditioned providing a respite from the humidity and "interesting" bugs. My only suggestion to the homeowners would be to air condition the kitchen area, which would make evening dinners more comfortable and allow family members to linger longer versus rushing off to the cool comfort of the bedrooms. Petra was a godsend! She appeared within minutes whenever we called her with questions or for recommendations regarding activities or dinner reservations. She was accommodating and appropriate. Btw, upon arrival the fridge and kitchen were stocked with the grocery list we had provided her via email. She was a pleasure to communicate with prior to our trip and lovely to deal with in person. The same goes for the rest of her team including the affable housekeeper, Lara, who went out of her way to take good care of us including cooking delicious breakfasts and dinner. Big tears from me when it was time to say goodbye to heaven on earth. No doubt we will return to Villa Diosa del mar again someday. Until then... thank you for showing us the pure life! Pura vida!!"

  • Pura Vida!!!!

    "My husband and I just spent a month in one of these apartments. We chose this spot because of the photos and reviews. We were not in the least bit disappointed! We thoroughly enjoyed our Costa Rican experience and now understand Pura Vida! The apartment is exactly as it is represented in the photos. Clean, bright, open and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is very well equipped and the BBQ is an added bonus. There are some very welcomed extras, such as numerous quality towels and linens, great beach towels and chairs. We did not lack any of the comforts of home. The apartment is on the outskirts of town, but it really is a 5 minute walk to the beach and about 15 minutes along the beach to town. We did not want to rent a car this vacation and we never regretted our decision. If we needed to get to or from town, a taxi was always available and reasonably priced. The bus also stopped right out the door. For us, a daily walk became routine. The beach is beautiful. It changes drastically from high to low tide. It is an amazing place to run - early morning or early evening. Safe for children, but fun for adults and many aquatic activities. Sunsets are spectacular! The town is very laid back, but with all the necessary conveniences. Everyone is very friendly and we always felt safe. Good number and variety of restaurants. There is a great information service in town that will help direct you towards many different tours or just answer questions. Deborah, the owner/manager is also a great help. She is available at all times and wants her guests to be happy. Her sons run the Canopy tour and that is a must activity!! Very professional and exciting but safe for all ages. There is even a discount for tenants. As mentioned in other reviews, this apartment is on the main road. There is noise, up until around 10 at night. The roosters ,dogs and monkeys also make themselves known, but all of this is part of the "true" Costa Rican experience. We so enjoyed our morning coffee on our balcony and an evening drink as the sun set, watching the world go by. We really felt like became a part of the community. All in all, a wonderful home away from home in a beautiful country."

  • Wonderful Costa Rica experience

    "We stayed at Casa De Suenos May 2010 for my 40th Birthday. It was our first time in Nosara, Costa Rica. The house was perfect for our group. The location is near the beach and town. We enjoyed the pool and privacy. Would definitely come back and recommend this home and vacation to everyone!"

  • Reserva Conchal - Terrific property, amazing beach, great pool/spa - the perfect place for us

    "Our family of four could not have been happier with our stay at the Reserva Conchal. Alonso Lara was great. Super helpful with getting the condo arranged, friendly and informative about places to go and things to see. Alonso was also very helpful with an issue we had not related to the condo. The condo at Reserva Conchal was perfect. Large, clean, well furnished and ready to go when we arrived early in the morning. The property is great, with shuttles that run you where you need to be. Access to the pool and beach were perfect. Everything was safe and fun. We could also explore several different beaches within an easy 20-30min drive. So exploring different spots was a cinch. We had a great time and cannot say enough good things about our condo and about Alonso. We will be back!"
