  • Magical Beyond Belief!

    "This was my first visit to Costa Rica, four of us came to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and I have to say that we all were overwhelmed with the beauty and the charm of this property, you could not be closer to the ocean. When we arrived, Perla (love her!), welcomed us with a warm smile and a great meal. She was very attentive to anything that we needed. Our laundry was done, house was clean, we were very spoiled!! Even prepared a great dinner with a fish that we caught the day before - heavenly!! Mel and Perla were very helpful with suggestions as far as fishing, zip lining and just the overall experience. We were able to walk to some local restaurants and even go to one of the local hotels and use their pool. When we wanted to just chill, we took advantage of the balcony that overlooks the ocean, we even got treated to a big tropical rain storm!! We would definitely go back, and recommend this property to anyone. Thanks Mel and Perla for giving us an amazing experience!"

  • Papagayo Paradise

    "We highly recommend staying at Vista Hermosa if you are planning a stay on the Papagayo Peninsula!! It is beautifully appointed with gorgeous art and stylish furnishings. The main living and dining space has a huge balcony and there are also individual balconies off of each bedroom, an infinity pool right next door - all of which overlook the driving range and ocean. There is also a nicely equipped kitchen and great jetted tub in the master bath! If you are looking for relaxation - this is the place. A typical day was waking up early, driving the golf cart 9 holes looking for monkeys and birds, checking out a beach or two (again with barely a soul in sight!). Back for some breakfast and then going to either the Prieta Beach Club, Four Seasons or Andaz to hang out with a day pass. The Andaz adult pool was awesome, with howlers and white-faced monkeys lazing in the trees around the pool all day, plus a couple of coco-loco tropical drinks and some cevice - can life get any better? If had the kids with us they would have loved the family pools at the Andaz and Four Seasons too. In the afternoon we'd hang out by the condo pool (basically our own pool as nobody else was ever there during our entire stay!). For dinner, sometimes we would grill (we stocked up at the Mercado in Coco and Liberia - we preferred Liberia - both about a 45 minute drive) and sometimes we'd head out to a restaurant (lots of options close by!). We did get some great tenderloin and lamb chops at the butcher (Carnes San Martin - stellar, right by airport in the Solarium development at the back left hand side). The grill is awesome and I was able to sous-vide some ribs and sear them on the grill; sooooo good. Note, a great place to go and see the sunset is the 3rd hole or the Prieta Beach Club. Honestly, the decisions to be made were really about which beach, what drink? It was that good. Totally recommend it! Bari is awesome too - makes scheduling anything easy. Took the boat to a few beaches and saw the caves one day. Was a nice change of pace and learned to paddle-board too. She also arranged for our car - which was great. Another tip is to get duty-free rum after you land in Liberia - it is right in baggage area. A liter of Flor De Cana there will set you up for the week!! Book it. You'll love it!"

  • A very special trip!

    "We just came back from a wonderful time in Nosara! Casa Madera Mar is a beautiful home and in a great location/proximity to a gorgeous stretch of beach. Just a short stroll to incredible beach sunsets and tide pools. Having the pool to cool off in was perfect. The kids loved the "ring toss" game and ping pong. We felt very safe with the friendly security guards, who would make sure we got home when walking in the dark. We had visits of Howler monkeys, armadillos, raccoons, green parakeets, and there was even an anteater up in the tree in front of the house. So much to do right in Nosara. Don't miss La Luna, a delicious beautiful restaurant the next beach north of Guiones. Tico Nosara Surf shop was the best for board rentals and surf info/lessons. The local people were so lovely and genuinely sweet!"

  • Breathtaking view and genuine Costa-Rican feel

    "We stayed 12 days at Casa Margarita with 3 teen girls. The team from Special Places of Guanacaste was extremely helpful and responded quickly to any questions. The house is just perfect with a beautifully tended yard, the nicest housekeepers and probably one of the best views of the mountains and ocean in the area... access to the popular locations is easy being mid pt between Tamarindo (25min) and Hermosa (40min) beaches (about 10-15 beaches of all types in between). We were driven or drove to Adventure sites in-land on day trips and were easily home for dinner. Rent a 4x4! Grocery choices are 10 to 20 min away which we did occasionally on way back from beach outings... This is very good value for money!"
