  • Didn't want to leave!!

    "We just spent 9 days at Villa Buena Vista and fell in love!!! The property is perched up on a hill overlooking the ocean. The wrap around patio was perfect for listening to the waves role in and the landscaping was lush!! The house was clean and very comfortable. Both Anna Maria and her brother Ernesto were AMAZING!!! We felt very safe knowing that Ernesto was on the property. Anna Maria cleaned each day for us and the best part was the laundry that she did. Coming home from vacation with a family of 5 and all of our clothes clean = Priceless!! We also made arrangements to have Anna Maria cook some breakfast and lunches for us and they were also wonderful!! There are 4 dogs on the property in which we also loved, my kids became attached to each of them and they always greeted us when we returned!! I highly recommend this property and the only consideration would be that one of the bedrooms is on the lower level of the house with its own entrance. None of my kids wanted to sleep down there so depending on who your traveling with or the ages of your kids this may be a problem or it could be an asset. We made it work and would rent this house again in a heart beat!!"

  • A relaxing beachfront retreat

    "We traveled to Costa Rica for the first time and rented this wonderful beach front home for a few days. Wish we could have stayed longer, but our itinerary did not allow a lot of time. It is in a great location, in a very small town which is extremely secluded. Although the trip from San Jose was over 4 hours long, the beachfront home can't be beat. The sand is steps from your backyard and there are very few people around. It is nice to be secluded, however it is best you are prepared for it. When we arrived it was late and dark and we didn't have any idea where to get food. Luckily, we had stopped at a market on the way in and managed to cook up a meal for the 10 of us. You need to plan ahead if you want to go to the town of Tamarindo because a boat will take you over there for $1 but after 4pm don't plan on anyone being there to take you back. So most nights we stayed in and had the chef, Marcia cook for us. What a treat! She is an amazing cook and she took such good care of us. She spoke only in Spanish so my son got a wonderful refresher course and they spent the weekend conversing. She was such a important part of our great experience. It was nice to know that her family was living on the property and there to help with anything we needed (like when the locks didn't work on the pool house the first night and all 4 kids had to sleep in the main house with us). She also did a great job of cleaning the house daily which was great. The main house is spacious, but broken up into several smaller rooms. The only thing lacking a bit was seating in the family room, and the dining table only has chairs for 7 so we had to pull in patio chairs from outside. But it was plenty of room for us and we had a wonderful and memorable vacation at Playa Grande! The estuary tour and the catamaran sunset cruise were a highlight. Such a beautiful country. Wish we could go back."

  • Wonderful location! Lovely home!

    "We had two families, total of 8, stay at Casa Cristal for spring break and it was lovely! Lots of room to relax around the pool. The four bedrooms gave us plenty of room and we could even watch the NCAA finals and the Masters on the TV in the family room. The kitchen was great and we enjoyed having the cook a few nights too! The ping pong table was a big hit with the kids and they loved walking to the beach everyday to surf! We went fishing one day and caught 4 sailfish! Great house to rent for a surfing and fishing vacation!"

  • Perfect location for rest and relaxation

    "The condo is in a perfect location for rest and relaxation, yet close enough for active adventures. The condo is just as pictured. The view from the condo is outstanding. To see the blue sky and hear the surf from the front window is heaven on earth. The condo is nicely appointed with all the comforts of home. Beds are very comfortable. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and Rita from the property management company greeted us and led us to the condo to give us an overview of everything. She was most helpful and readily available for any questions we may have. The information provided by Kalli was wonderful. She did not miss a thing in terms of what is provided as well as recommendations for dining and recreation. We took advantage of having groceries delivered to the condo on the day of arrival so that we could have a restful evening and enjoy breakfast items in the morning. We took long walks on the endless beach and enjoyed cocktails and appetizers at the Beach House, which is walking distance from the condo. There is a fruit and vegetable stand just as you enter the property and the pineapples were sooo sweet and delicious. We had a private chef come to the condo on two separate occasions and it was worth every penny. We also had two massage therapist (Alejandra and Karen)come to the condo for heavenly one hour massages. We were so impressed that we had them come back again. Roxanne was the name of the concierge we worked with prior to our arrival and she is the one who set up the private chefs as well as the massage therapists. What a wonderful service. I do recommend renting a car since it is a distance from areas that have more action, such as Tamarindo. Tamarindo is about 25 minutes by car. Everything else is within walking distance; the Beach House, The Shack (best Tico breakfast in town), Playa Flamingo and its beach vendors. I would not hesitate to rent this condo again. Kudos to Kalli, Rita and Roxanne for a job well done! Pura Vida!!!!"
