  • 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"

  • VERY NICE, PRIVATE, AND COMFORATABLE HOME & LOCATION

    "The house was bigger than I expected and comfortable. It was clean and organized. The yard is just a pool and a small table but to be honest, we only swam and stayed inside due to typical Costa Rica bugs during this time of year. The A/C units worked perfectly. They appear to be somewhat new and easy to use the remotes. I wish there were maybe 1 or 2 comfy chairs in the living room rather than just the sofa. We were all clumped on the sofa together so some room off the only couch would be nice. But, no biggy. Didn't spend much time in there anyway. The bed in master room a bit hard but I prefer that over too soft. Maybe add a pillow top cover with memory foam and problem solved! The shower head upstairs needs some TLC but not a huge issue. It worked and we showered with no problem. The kitchen is fully stocked with all pots, pans, silver, plates, glasses, etc...we had all we needed. We had some issues with the lights in the living room as they could not be turned off. We had a teenager who wanted to sleep in there (rather than with his little brother) so he had to sleep with the lights on. But, we blew a fuse one day and figured out that #16 on the panel shuts them off.....if you want to know. Gate lock downstairs is a little tricky and it made some of the guys mad...but, I never had a problem with it. Worked for me! hahahahha Just don't over think it...turn key, twist, pull door open. :) We rented a golf cart....WAY TO GO!!! Perfect for getting to the beach with boards, bags, towels, and children. We had to do 2 trips since there was 7 of us but only a 6-7 minutes drive. We rented bikes for a day but too hot to pedal around and kids tired easily. Rent a golf cart! Alan, JuanRo, Stephan, and team are the BEST! A+ service from these guys! Juan gave us a phone to call any of them when needed and we used it....it was perfect. They accommodated our adventure needs with ease! showed up on time for every event (we were a bit late...but not those guys). The transportation always had A/C to keep us cool...and drivers were safe on the roads. Alan told us all sorts of cool things about Costa Rica and gave us tips for our next trip back! He's the best! I highly recommend the pure adrenaline tour! It's not for the lazy peeps.....so have your energy drink! So much fun!!! What else? Oh...we had a small electrical issue and Juan had a guy come out within minutes to fix it. I will use these guys next time...for sure!!"

  • Beach House Made for an amazing vacation

    "We spent 6 days at the beach house with our four kids, ages 6 to 11. We had a great time. Spent time at the beach every day. The Dodge's were great hosts and loaned us some boogie boards, the kids would go out and play in the surf for hours. The kids collected beautiful shells, sand dollars, and built sand castles for big and small hermit crabs to live in. The beach was perfect. The sand gradually slopes into the ocean, gently enough that my 6 year old that doesn't swim very well could still go out into the ocean without too much worry. We sometimes felt we had the beach all to ourselves. The beach was clean and felt very safe. The sunsets were amazing. Comparing to any of the other beaches we went to, for our family Playa Grande was the best."

  • 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!!"
