  • Convenient and comfortable, beautiful views

    "My family had a wonderful time at Villa Buena Vista. The house has everything you need to feel right at home. There's plenty of kitchen supplies to cook all meals, piles of towels to take down to the beach, and 4 lovely dogs that welcome you every afternoon. We especially liked the short drive to Playa Danta beach resort. You can rent kayaks, SUP boards, boogie boards, and mountain bikes to ride or hike the extensive trail system with gorgeous views of the gold coast. We felt safe having the dogs around as well as Ernesto, who lives on the property also. Wifi signal was strong and air conditioning units in each room worked perfectly. If I could make any recommendations it would be to change the mattresses in bedrooms 2 and 3, which are uncomfortably hard, though the sheets were clean and soft. I would recommend this property to travelers of all ages and groups from 1-6 people. This is the 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."

  • Family vacation

    "Villa Orquideas was our home base for a 2 week Xmas vacation for our family. It was impeccably clean, high quality linens, super confortable beds and sofas, ample kitchen linens, beach towels, shower towels, paper/cleaning necessities. Kitchen with full appliances, well stocked, a few minor items missing upon arrival, replaced the very next day by condo manager. Many different areas within the house and grounds allowing common time (large dinning room table/ open kitchen living area) as well as private time (2 different living rooms on 2 floors, and several terrasses). 5 homes nestled around a common pool, all tenants during our stay quiet, curteous and pleasant. NO other neighbours. Very short walk to the beach; ocean view through the trees as soon as you walk out of the property grounds to the left. Most amazing beach, both surfable and swimmable ! Another beach to the right, a few minutes walk, TOTALLY private even through Xmas and New Years. Property owner super helpful and accomodating."
