  • Excellent location

    "Stayed here for a week. Manager very accommodating and easy to deal with! House met all expectations. Perfect walk to town and restaurants. Favorite part was the surf as well as watching howler monkeys!"

  • enjoyable

    "we arrived at La Patita Manzanillo on March 23rd 2016 and stayed 7 nights and left on March 1.The grounds are set in a very pretty lush setting.The house is very nice with very pretty wood.There are very nice tables that rap around the outside living area with benches that are built around the eating area .The house is real nice but if you you want to just hang out or you get a rainy day,there is really no comfortable place to sit outside of the benches.The beaches are just a minute away.The beach is absolutely beautiful set in a low key setting,and there is tables in the shade in front of the beach.The beach is safe for young ones to play in water and on the beach.You do not need water shoes. . There are some good sodas(local eating places) right across from the beach.Yari the housekeeper is very helpful and very friendly.You will see monkeys and birds on the property,and if you are for more of a party setting,all you need to do is go to Puerto Viejo which is 15-20 minutes down the road.The only reason i don't give the rental a five is it just needs some comfortable chairs to sit in."

  • A fantastic Villa with all of the amenities!

    "My wife and I booked this villa for our first vacation in Costa Rica. Additionally, our grown sons and their partners joined us. Let me say that we found the villa to be fantastic in every way! There are three ample bedrooms so that everyone has their own space. Every bedroom has sliders out to the villa-length deck. The master bedroom has a large en suite bathroom with double sinks and a huge jetted tub and separate shower. The kitchen/living room (great room) is very large allowing space for reading, sitting, cooking, or other indoor activities. But who wants to be indoors when the view from the deck is of the ocean and the mainland beyond. You can watch the ferry to the mainland go back and forth throughout the day. You could also see the clouds that hover over the section called the cloud forest on the mainland side. And if you want, and I did, watch all of the activity while standing in the pool on the deck. A wonderful way to cool down in a very private setting. Caroline, the property concierge, was extremely helpful in scheduling anything we needed. On two mornings, she scheduled a girls, then a boys morning of massages in-villa for us all. She and her husband, Michael, run a great little restaurant down at the beach on this compound that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Very good! Overall, Costa Rica has so much to offer, you can’t see it all in one trip. We made it a point to do all of the activities we could on the Nicoya Peninsula (where this villa is located) on this trip, such as the great beaches in Samara and to stay at other places on the mainland for future trips to see other attractions. We did take the car on the ferry (ferry landing very close by) and drove to the Monteverde area. We stayed overnight at Pension Santa Elena for short money to take in the Cloud Forest, Monteverdi Coffee tour and other sights. The property was very clean and well maintained and the only down note was that the air conditioning unit in one bedroom did not work and took 4 days to get it looked at and repaired. With the weather at 93 degrees every day, it was a slight inconvenience to not have it, but it did not affect my extremely positive review. So, if you are most interested in activities on the Nicoya Peninsula and want a fantastic place to stay with the utmost in privacy, this Villa will deliver!"

  • Can't wait to return!

    "Our party of 8 recently returned from a wonderful stay at Casa Java. My husband and I and our two girls (ages 10 and 8) traveled from Cleveland, Ohio with our dear friends and their two like age daughters. We have visited Santa Teresa twice before but this is the first time we took the children along, after a quick internet search we decided that Casa Java would be perfect for our weeklong stay and I am so pleased to say we were right! The property is lovely and the house stunning, the pictures truly do not do it justice. The main living space is open, unique, and entranced both children and adults alike. The children loved having their "own space" in the double bedroom. Iguanas, birds, and yes monkeys abound! The pool was a mainstay for everyone after returning from the various activities booked by the outstanding concierge who arranged surfing lessons for the kids, a private boat tour to tortugas, buggy rentals, dinner reservations, fishing tours, zip-lining, and child care. All were amazing, the childcare provider (Brittany) was a favorite of both the kids and parents. The surf instructors were fantastic and had the kids up on their boards in no time. All of our other excursions were wonderful and unlike anything we had experienced on our prior visits. When we returned to the house everything was back in its place which is incredibly difficult with 4 young girls! The carekeeping staff were truly lovely, specially arranging all the children's toys in their rooms in a different way each day that had them racing to the door to their room to see what surprise was in store. We truly appreciated all of the staff, who were gracious and unobtrusive. I could not recommend this property more, it is truly a special place and I am so grateful for this is my children's first view of Santa Teresa, they enjoyed it so much we asked them to share a page in the beautiful guest book. We meant one page. They wrote four."
